That particu;ar pose says " I'm tired, so piss off."
Would you like him to be in a book?

Are you looking for characters?
OppositeSpectrumClub's avatar
To some degree, yes.
A large group and I are making a REdwall FanFic Trilogy.
Fan-characters are welcome.
I'm the storyboard writer, so I recruit other characters and incorporate them into the book.
Simple.

Freaking awesome! Very emotive, and the anthro characteristics are very well structured. Is there a story behind this character somewhere, by chance?

Totally adding this to my favorites!

He's just a character I played on a MUCK. No story has been written about him and I have no logs of him. But he was fun to play. I miss mucking. T_T

I wouldn't say 'legendary'

The Legend of Malachi!

Available for the Nintendo Wii come August 2007! XD That would rock.

My son loves the Redwall books -- I just worked on a picture of Lonna Bowstripe for him. This is a great badger. I especially love the confident, strong body language -- really conveys that he's bad and knows it... :D

Thanks! I'm glad your son loves those books. They're really good, to the point I don't really wanna call them 'Children's Books' because its good enough for adults as well.

Awesome pic, btw. I love your inking style and how your darks pop out so well. If you ever wanna do a trade or a collaborative piece sometime, just lemme know. I'd totally be up for it. =D

I agree with your comments on the books -- I'm impressed by Brian Jaques' ability to create a world that feels and sounds real. Lots of fun stuff.

Thanks so much for commenting on my inking style. :highfive: It's been a major focus of mine this year to try to do real backgrounds and to create separation with some really strong, deliberately placed blacks & whites. So I appreciate the feedback. Thank you.

...oh, I finally clued in on your login name. very nice choice. kenshin rocks... :D

Right now, things are totally insane and I can't do a trade or collab -- but it sounds kinda cool and when things get better I may take you up on it... :nod:

*winks* Yup, Kenshin is the stuff.

Take your time on the trade. Just tossing the offer out to you. It never expires.
