Cubs first meeting. by Quachir Cubs first meeting. by Quachir
Orestes: Who are they, Mother?
Medea: Friends, I used to cub sit their mother, Mayah.
Xinir: *growling* Are they good at play fighting?
Dragon: Better than you, Gryffin here could whip your tail!
Gryffin: Maybe... but I don't want to hurt them.
Phoenix: *eyes Orestes with a grin then looks at the male's sister* They look like they might be fun. Can we play with them, Mama?
Mayah: That's what I brought you to meet the Queen's cubs for; to play, have fun, and become friends with my friends cubs.


~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'm really happy with the majority of this picture, the paws coule be better on most of them but I guess I hid most of that behind a grass brush. The characters you see here are as follows starting from the upper left, going down: Medea, her son Orestes and daughter Xinir, then Mayah, her two sons Dragon and Gryffin, and her daugher Phoenix.

I really think I need to find some better scenes to play out so that there more than just grass around but I'm a bit shotty at backgrounds in the first place.

What I do like in here is that I've finally introduced Gryffin and Dragon to my galleries, though I think this may be the first time I've shown Orestes and Xinir here as well. Gryffin litterally only got his colors chossen the night before so he's really special in that fact.

So tell me what you like; oh and before anyone thinks of mentioning it, I don't think I'm going to do any more shading on this image. Or at least not in the near future.

Yeah, I loved making the interact this way. I especially liked making dragon stand up using his brother Gryffin. Dragon acttually looks a bit out of character as he's a very nice cub most of the time but I think he's sort of goated on by Xinir actually showing her claws in her play-thretoning pose. BTW you hear about lilydirt? (if you're already on it sorry, must have missed you on there)

Yeah *looks at her clock* Ooo! July 1st! *checks the mud* Drat, Mud's not up yet... haven't quite figured out what time zone it's in yet. But I'm glad it will be up soon, I've been waiting about a week and a half to show Forever December his/her (can't remember their gender) ferret Fuzzle lionized. It's different from the way I've seen others draw her.

Good work! They blend in reasonably well with the grass, but the dark outline of Gryffin's back side is a bit too dark I think. The expressions on all of them are great!

Yeah I took a little bit of a short cut with Gryffin in that I used a dark brown with most of his body because the majority of his body was on the brown to dark brown shade... In later pictures I might get a bit more "detailed" so to speak with him and actually choose different shades of brown for his outlines. I really like how Gryff came out in this however, dark brown body and light brown mane. It's just something I haven't really done since his grandfather (Castor) who has his mane as being 98% cream colored with a blackish stripe right down the middle of his head. Thanks for the input, Shard
