This feels like a character that I might see in the Redwall books!

Thanks!

...You know, I never have read the Redwall series, though I've been admiring the cover art for years.

Thank you!

I have not drawn many rats, so Arcus was a fun subject. I enjoyed working with the subtle colors in his fur.

You're welcome!

He looks great, I like his anatomy too. You work really well with unknown topics, that's awesome!

Thanks!

Arcus the rat warrior was a fun subject to draw - I've not worked with rats in several years, so it was a nice change of pace from the usual run of uber-bright dragons. ;-)

Thank you so much, he looks absolutely fantastic!

I love his pose and expression. He looks full of energy and confidence, especially with that slightly smug grin. You've managed to capture so much detail in such a tiny working space, too. I also like the background; very clever use of the shoulder insignia to create an interesting background design! I can't wait to see him in real life. I can tell there are some little enhancements on the belt and dagger that will look even more awesome in person. :D

I'm glad you're pleased! The scanner failed to pick up the metallic sheen I worked into the background, but fortunately it did pick up on the inking details. I found that I just have to use very small pen nibs and tiny watercolor brushes... ;-)
