Alternative title: Pallanoph vs. Moose.
This should give folks a good sense of scale when it comes to pallanophs' size, though it's possible that Mirthond is shown a bit larger than she is intended to be. (Then again, why can't she be large?)
I tried to show her getting a grip on the bull moose's antlers; this way she can keep those deadly antlers somewhat restrained, and get a clear shot at his throat at the same time. Don't worry, pallanophs generally dispatch prey as quickly as possible.
Despite their careful planning, strength, and agility, it doesn't always end well for the hunting pallanoph. Perhaps soon I shall draw a hunt gone wrong!
Complaints regarding me posting even more pallanoph work should be directed to the Complaints Department. "Uuughguguh I HATE these stupid pallanoph things they're so LAME ohmaiGAWD."
Come on though, honestly, what do you expect?

Commissions are still in progress. I'm wrestling with one right now as I type.
