I did this painting several years ago - maybe 5 - but I still love it It is watercolor, 9" x 12", on cold pressed 100% cotton Aqvarelle Arches watercolor paper (this stuff is great).
When I was young I was hooked on the Redwall series, and this was done with Redwall in mind. I always have preferred to keep "furries" as they are in nature as opposed to making them anthro. When making it, I completely made up his clothes and sword, as I still to this day don't know much at all about weaponry or clothing.
Oh, yeah, I might also mention that I absolutely love squirrels
So here's my hand at sketching Redwall squirrels. I didn't know what Song was wearing so I just made something up. Though I'm sleepy and just about ready to drop, I wanted to finish this anyway. I knew I couldn't sleep without seeing the outcome of how I'd sketch Songbreeze. As always with drawing Redwall characters, this was fun!
As always I'm open to compliments as well as criticism or whatever. So if there is anything I need to note for next time PLEASE tell me. I don't know if I still have that tendency to make the characters have a weasel-like build.
It's 12:44 AM and now I can go to sleep in peace.

Ah, Cali's gotten me on a Redwall kick. These are just rough things I slap out in about fifteen minutes. Ask me later about a big painting I'm working on, a collaborative work between me and . That will probably be up after I'm done with the semester.
