Meercat / suricate (Suricata suricatta, surikata) from ZOO Bratislava, Slovakia
My mom saw this photo and she wanted me to post it. Oh no, I thought - yes, they are cute and their poses and faces are funny, but it is not that interesting... Then I got an idea to create an animation this is for you, mom
Thank you for your comments and faves ____________

Finished on August 29th Time : Around 15 hours Tools : Paint Tool SAI, Photoshop for editing
Finally done this one, I thought I could never finish him, but I did ! So I present you one of my OCs, Tsukai. She was in my mind for a long time, I played her in role play forum, but I wanted to do a concrete outfit for her. Tsukai is a sort of spirit, a fox spirit (so, a kitsune). In her precedent life, she was a not lucky girl. She was rejected by her clan because she could see spirits of the dead. I don't want to spoil (for my history ) but she is a soul keeper, she guide spirits and lost people to their salvation.
EDIT: I forgot whiskers! >.< 1-layer painting, done minutes at a time late at night over the course of the last few days as a break from reference sheets. On a ginormus canvas, might I add. I'm really freaking proud of this. Proud enough to use the word 'freaking'. More fanart for Spottedtail, who has literally lost everything but her home in various roleplays at #Warriors-NewClans. I hated her at first, but now, she's probably my favorite character.
Compare to my drawing of her late last year: [link]
Long overdue, so thank you so much for your patience. Thank you for your story, I love so much to read of animals in dreams. I often get my best ideas just before I go to sleep, but I rarely retain my own dreams. It's alway nice to hear of others.
Tried some more new techniques I've been longing to have a go at. Still got a few things to perfect and this was a tad rushed in places but overall I'm quite pleased.
Reference was used however I sketched this ages ago so I don't have the link. It's not in any way identical so it should be okay.
