Somewhat similar to the situation where a person mistakes deafness for rudeness as I talked about with this pic [link] , this is a typical reaction people have when they see us conversing in American Sign Language.
It’s also a spoof on the movie, “The Sixth Sense” in case you don’t get the joke.
Please note, in the Deaf community we spell "Deaf" with a capital D when referring to people who are proud to be Deaf, whereas "deaf" with a lowercase d refers to anyone who cannot hear.
This is concept art for one of the three main characters of the comic I'm working on called "Perilous Planet". Her name is Lisa Wynn, and she's an Arctic fox. She's a Lieutenant. Originally, I planned on this character being a weasel, but I decided that her role would be better played out as an Arctic fox. This didn't come out exactly as I wanted it, but it's a much better depiction of the character than the weasel version of her that I drew earlier (HERE). I'll also be adjusting the character poster I made to reflect her species change HERE.
I made a couple adjustments to my usual methods and style to try to get a more natural look. I also decided to get in some fur painting practice while I was at it. It's not that good. I haven't practiced it much, and I didn't spend much more than a few hours on the fur, so I didn't expect it to come out very good anyway.
Overall, I'm pretty happy with the drawing. I hope others will like it, too. I really appreciate feedback people have been giving me on my work, and it really helps me progress, so feel free to a comment. I'm very grateful when people do. Even if it just to say "Cool" or "Nice" or anything of the sort. That's much appreciated also. (One of the style adjustments I made was actually based on someone's earlier comment, and I must say that I agree that it made this character look a little more natural.)
