A $15 name your animal commission for :iconmoonsongwolf:! of her pet dumbo rat Domino. He's such a cutie, and was really fun painting.

Another for the animal sticker set :) Yay!
Still a slot left if anyone wants one of these for themselves.

Thank you so much! I absolutely love it. :love:

You captured the silly, curious nature of a rat perfectly, with the relaxed pose and alert expression. I particularly love the curling tail and the toes on the back feet. I find those to be the most challenging parts to draw, and I adore the way that you've stylized them. The markings and textures are beautiful, too. I will definitely be putting up a print on my wall (not sure I will be able to bring myself to take the sticker off of the page :lol:)

Thank you again! :heart:

Love this one, rats are great animals and I think you have made this one generically cute while still keeping to a realistic rattyness, though his ears may be a little too perky and high up for a dumbo rat

Thank you :)  Someone else pointed that out to me on another place I posted this, and I'm always glad for people to push me to work harder at getting an accurate caricature x33  I was so into trying to make the ears cute, that I lost their general placement on the head.
I was looking at some of the adorable rats of ~Steph-Laberis for inspiration, and I can't say exactly what breed of rat she normally draws :p  Hopefully commissioner is OK with it, or else I'll have an edited version up later x3

Awh, I'm honored you looked at my stuff ^_^ All of my rats have standard ears, I haven't had the opportunity to adopt a dumbo yet. It's true that ears close together on top of the head do increase the perkiness factor but dumbos don's have that option! They have such sweet round faces and always seem a little extra derpy for it :)

I love how much I get to learn about a species I have little contact with when drawing it :3!!

All of you guys have given me so much information, which is great.

And yeah, you have some of the best rodent drawings, so were definitely an inspiration :)!

D'awwe, so cute!  I love all of the SHAPES on this one - his knees, hind feet, his nose ( especially the bridge ), the brows, and ears - they're all so wonderful!  I love the stripes on his tail, too, and the pudgy belly~!
