I'm in the final stretch of my winter college term so I felt like drawing something more simple and lighthearted to brighten up my mood a bit.
For those of you that haven't seen it, 'You Are Umasou'
is an underrated gem of an anime movie that I really wanted to draw some fanart for ever since I finished my older 'Leafie: A Hen into the Wild'
I mentioned before in an older anime review I did of this movie that I headcannon that, by the end, Heart and his adoptive 'son' Umasou live out the rest of their days happily with Pero Pero as a mixed-dino family.
Pero Pero gets a special mention from me because she is a very kind, positive example of a predator that provides the stable companionship that Umasou needed when dealing with his inner conflict over his carnivore anxiety and his own moral compass.
So in short, I think Pero Pero would be a good 'mother' figure to match Heart's 'father' figure to Umasou.
Rarely have I pushed myself to do any water effects because I personally find it hard to do it right within my stylistic limitations, but I do not mind the results I came up with for now. 'You Are Umasou' ©
