What is thy bidding my Master by Psithyrus What is thy bidding my Master by Psithyrus
A cute little painting of a young badger kit gaining advice from a wise grub sage. This image just popped in my head, I always wanted to draw fossorial cuteness. The badger is an american badger, while the grub is a mature larva of a scarab beetle. I had a tough time trying to get the cub's face just right, he looked more like a fat ferret, but I suppose badgers and ferrets share many of the same traits.

Please enjoy this last of my pictures of 2011

Happy Holidays everyone :)

Blair

Augh, this is just ridiculously cute. I really love how you do textures. The fur, the dirt and rock, even the texture on the grub is just gorgeously rendered.

I love how you always manage to show some cute relationship between the 'characters', in this case a potential predator and its prey. Very sweet. :)
