The brand new eeveelution, Sylveon, has become my new favorite pokemon. I have loved Espeon ever since she came out and now I can honestly say, this little cutie has stolen my heart! Pink and bows and ribbons? Oh my! I HAD to make a sculpture of her. She. Is. So. CUTE!
Made of Sculpey clay and painted with acrylics. Stands 3.5 inches tall from tip of ears to paws. Looks better in person but of course camera takes bad pictures...
*Ninfia/Sylveon belongs to Nintendo and this is purely fan art.
What a painful decision but... here's the new Liffy.
Some of you are curious to know why I changed her without any words? Well, it's pretty annoying if your Fursona becomes into a pain in the arse 'cause I hadn't no more fun to draw her. I don't know why but earlier this year I had the bad feeling that she isn't a part of me anymore. The Wolf inside of me was over many years on my side and I can't begin to tell you how hard it is to move from another species. Really. I love wolves with all my heart but my love for dogs was always a way bigger. And now... yeah, now I changed her and I have to say that I regret nothing. I'm satisfied with the new Liffy and I think that's an important thing to me. I'm the one who should like her, aye? And that's what I do. <3
After all I hope that you like her too. I know it's kinda unusual but she's still the same with a tie, two different color of eyes and her strikingly blue hair. She's still Liffy only as dog. ♥
This is my entry for the winter contest at ... I barely made the last day. I wanted to do so much more with this piece but I had to try to keep it fast and not stress so much. Otherwise, that would defeat the purpose. I wanted to have fun with it.
The Abomasnow is my OC Trainer's Aboma (his name is Hrothgar, and he is shiny... hence the blue color). The others are his buddies.
Nothing says ridiculously cute like a wall-eyed Cubchoo.

I see you.... Forest leaf grasshopper (Systella rafflesi) Taken at night in Singapore forest. Another one with different colour morphs.
Quote from en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grasshop… Grasshoppers prefer to eat grasses, leaves and cereal crops, but many grasshoppers are omnivorous. The majority of grasshoppers are polyphagous. Many will eat from multiple host plants in one day, while some prefer to rely on the same host plant. Only one of the 8000 species of grasshopper is monophagous and will only eat a single species of plant.
The digestive system of insects includes a foregut (stomodaeum, the mouth region), a midgut (mesenteron), and a hindgut (proctodaeum, the anal region). The mouth is distinct due to the presence of a mandible and salivary glands. The mandible can chew food very slightly and start mechanical digestion. Salivary glands (occur in buccal cavity) chemically digest the carbohydrates in the grasses and similar foods they eat. The buccal cavity continues with pharynx, esophagus and crop. The crop has the ability to hold food. From the crop, food enters the gizzard, which has tooth-like features in it. From there, food enters the stomach. In the stomach, digestive enzymes mix with the food to break it down. These enzymes originate from the gastric caeca surrounding the stomach. This leads to the malpighian tubules. These are the chief excretion organs. The hindgut includes intestine parts (including the ileum and rectum), and exits through the anus. Most food is handled in the midgut, but some food residue as well as waste products from the malpighian tubules are managed in the hindgut. These waste products consist mainly of uric acid, urea and amino acids, and are normally converted into dry pellets before being disposed.
The salivary glands and midgut secrete digestive enzymes. The midgut secretes protease, lipase, amylase, and invertase, among other enzymes. The particular ones secreted vary with the different diets of grasshoppers.
The grasshopper's nervous system is controlled by ganglia, loose groups of nerve cells which are found in most species more advanced than cnidarians. In grasshoppers, there are ganglia in each segment as well as a larger set in the head, which are considered the brain. There is also a neuropile in the centre, through which all ganglia channel signals. The sense organs (sensory neurons) are found near the exterior of the body and consist of tiny hairs (sensilla), which consist of one sense cell and one nerve fibre, which are each specially calibrated to respond to a certain stimulus. While the sensilla are found all over the body, they are most dense on the antennae, palps (part of the mouth), and cerci (near the posterior). Grasshoppers also have tympanal organs for sound reception. Both these and the sensilla are linked to the brain via the neuropile.
Have been burning to do a complete Digimon evolution line for a while now. Probably picked the worst example, since I have no idea on how that one actually evolves correctly, but I think I at least got every level covered with some related Digimon, so enjoy!
And yes, it's a Squiby, all stages, and I already forgot the levels, but getting the Mega level is always a pain in the ass, so expect it to be a pain in the butt! What people do for a weird pink winged clown bunny, I'll never know.
