I'm waiting for someone to just edit a Tarvos and just call it good.

That's what I would've done, had I not gotten a good-ish idea.

creaturefeature_by_rubydragoncat-d8i9yo1

Character from my original fiction project that's been collecting dust...he's a vampelf(vampire/elf hybrid) named Blazen. Got his name because that's what all male fire elves are named when they're born at the crack of dawn on the first day of summer, and his mom knew that even though one day he would grow fangs and reveal his true parentage, not giving him the special name would raise some eyebrows right away. His pet is a dragoncat(my namesake!), an emerald tom named Jasper. All the colors that dragoncats come in are named after gems. But other than that and having dragon wings/being able to fly, they're like regular housecats.

Blazen was edited from a sage sprite. Makes sense, being half fire elf he can use fire magic. Jasper is full custom.

Loosely based of my character from Harvest Moon, in which he has a pet ferret. Yeah.

Uh. Lesse.

The ferret may look weird, but that's because I'm bad at proportions; human or animal.

That's a bag of (turnip) seeds in his hand BTW.

First full custom. Turned out pretty well.

Edit: Call him...iunno. Frank? Kent? One of the two.

Edit the second: Played around with the ferret; should I give Frank/Kent a hat?

Edit the third: Gifed the ferret for your pleasure and enjoyment. I mean, this contest is about the animals after all.

Yeah the ferret does look weird. Maybe adding ears would help? But don't feel bad. Jasper doesn't look overly fantastic either.

I added a friend's suggestion of putting the tail up, and I think I like the tail up. Sure, it may not be practical, but hey. Who needs physics?

Fun fact: The sprite I made was originally going to be heavily based off of a YouTube personality, but then I removed obvious references to said personality since I remembered it was a custom character, and I wanted to further distinguish the sprite from the person.

That, and I really want to play Harvest Moon atm.

GAH. FARMING.

I think it would be difficult to sprite with a tablet, but as we digress. Awesome sauce. Now Blazen and Jasper feel as inadaquite as their creator. That's misspelled so badly even the spell check doesnt work, btw...

But damn it, I was going to do a blue dragon too! Good thing it's going to look different anyway.

EDIT: Dragoncat, I sprited my shirtless Ike avy with my tablet. :P

It's tablet

I tend to use a combination of tablet on 400-800% zoom and sometimes the trackpad for fine detail in my workflow pretty much never used a mouse for spriting

You can do p much anything on tablet, I also use it for vector art

Mouse would be hard to sprite something that scale for me; Someone who's actually used to spriting with a mouse could probably do it but my spriting style is pretty much paint the goddamn thing then refine so it works much better with tablets

Arcia the whale hunter, with her trusty companion Celivar.

What is Celivar exactly? Looks like a sea serpent, but could be a water dragon or something else.
