Lion's Paw

By JohnSu
2K Favourites
Little Pyotr Rabbit went fishing by the lake
Cast his line into the water, felt it start to shake!
"Boy, I've got the big one now!" he cried with childish glee
(What a rabbit does with fish is frankly beyond me)

He pulled with all his might and brought his catch up to the surface
then dropped it on the ground (though this part was not on purpose).
The first to break the silence was the freshly captured fish:
"If you'll return me to the lake, I'll grant you any wish."

Pyotr took a moment to reflect upon his life
His days were fairly mundane and devoid of any strife
"There isn't really anything exciting nowadays,
I wish a shoujo would appear, like in my animes!"

"I'll get right on it!" said the fish and blinked (do fish have eyelids?)
Then something burst out from the ground, the sound heard 'round the islands
The fish said "Can I go home now? This deal is done from my end."
But Pyotr was already screaming "I MUST RUN FROM LION!"

It was in fact a shoujo: Lion's Paw, the cyborg human!
But Pyotr had no time for that as he was now a zoomin'
down the road back to his house, a hunter on his heels
(His chaser's only goal, though, was to know how his fur feels)

So that concludes my write up of this artwork here delayed
I thank you for your patience and I'm grateful that you stayed
But now I must return to filing taxes on my cash.

your coloring is so freaking good! I see you used Manga Stuido for the BG but what about the rest of the coloring? Was that all Manga Stuido as well? I currently use PaintTool Sai but have been looking into alternate programs just to test em out

for some reason having 1 giant clawed arm is always cooler than having 2 for some reason :D

I just found this after looking up RWBY art and the cyborg looks like it has traits from the members of Team RWBY.

Ruby's red cape.
Weiss' white hair.
Blake's yellow eyes.
Yang's... current lack of a right arm.

More or less.

Yeah... that bunny has no chance.

I think this would make one heck of a bedtime story.

Is she trying to skin the bunny, or does she just want to pet it? Cause sometimes finding out how a creatures fur feels sometimes means skinning it and wearing said creature.

I wasn't truly amused by the poem until you rhymed your standard "Characters made in Flash" thing into it. xD

You should do poetic descriptions more often.

How can you be so consistently awesome?
The mind reels.
And then jigs.
And does a little backflip.
And kind of gooshes, since it can't nail the landing.
