Here's a new reference for Maple! I changed a lot of details and colors on her. Overall, I'm satisfied with the result xux

I tried to keep it simple, so I didn't including specifics about fire abilities. I feel like it's more open ended this way. 

Sheee by MapleSpyder

Here's her older sheets over the past two years:

Gahhh her markings are so pretty. ;A; I love the bright greens and blues and how they contrast with her warm earthy coat, and feathers are always nice. :'3

These days Maple kinda looks like a pirate... with her wicked grin and braids. I think the new look you're going for is cool!

You see, I don't understand why hyenas are so hated by people, sure they kill lion cubs for food. But, don't lions do to? They do the exact same thing to hyena clans. That's just how the food chain works. Yet, people still think that hyenas are such evil serial killers, that have no heart, soul, or love.

I mean, look at this character! It's so adorable, and graceful, I love it. I think all hyena-haters should just browse up on Wikipedia, and actually do some research on hyenas, in stead of agreeing with other people who hardly know a thing about them.

Another situation, which I can understand, if you dislike an animal, even a hyena, simply for its looks. That's understandable, because that's just a person's taste. Like, some people might not like pigs for their looks, some bears, etc. and that's fine. However, hating a creature because it's hunting younger animals for food, it's not a very good reason. Really, it isn't. Predators do this to survive, not for fun.

Anyway, I love your character a lot MapleSpyder , it has a lot of behaviour and character in itself that shows off in this reference. She's beautiful. <3
