'Animal of the Week' - American Mink
How long has it been since I uploaded one of these? Far too long, by all accounts.
I actually did this one back in February, but then my university work intervened and I clean forgot to upload it. Now that I've finished my course, I hope to get back to uploading these on a more regular basis.

Animal of the Week - American mink (Neovison vison).

Additional species: North American river otter (Lontra canadensis) and Muskellunge (Esox masquinongy).

MerMay 2018 - Auk and Murre-maids
A little different to what I normally draw, but since we are in MerMay, I decided to enter into the spirit of things.

I had pondered once or twice before on what Auk and Murre would look like as mermaids. Since many seafarers feared sharks and giant squid, it seemed fitting to cast them in the form of two of the ocean's most notorious predators.

I'm a little annoyed with myself for doing such a hashed job of Auk's shark body - however, I am pleased with how her hair turned out. (This is the first time I'm tried drawing hair as it would look underwater.)

Why did I have her devouring a fish? Well, partly because it adds to the shark image, but also because it provided a convenient way to cover her chest. To be honest, I'm not sure how necessary this was - as you may have noticed, my female characters don't have breasts. Since they are animals, I have kept their anatomical features the same as in real life - instead of breasts, they have a double row of teats down the belly, but they're hidden away in the fur, so you can't see them. (I did consider using seashells or starfish or any of the other modesty covers you tend to see on mermaids. but ultimately decided against it.)

Ah yes, and then there's Murre's scar. There's a story behind that, but it'll have to wait for another day.

Just a quick journal entry to wish all my fellow deviants a very Merry Christmas - hope you all have a fantastic day! :D

(Sorry I haven't done anything to mark the occasion this year - I haven't really had the time or access to a scanner. I'll try to commemorate a few more holidays next year to make up for it!)

Happy Holidays, everyone!

Bushdog4's Profile Picture

Louis Burnard
United Kingdom
A part-time artist with many ideas, but little experience outside of traditional methods. For this reason, I am largely restricted to using pens, pencils and watercolours. I specialise in drawing animals (usually in an anthropomorphic cartoon style), and am especially fond of carnivorous mammals, particularly mustelids.

I'm not very good at writing journal entries, so usually, my various characters write them for me.
