I’ve got a horrible feeling one of my next pieces will be my main character Rana (she’s a ranger, I’ve decided she’s rather anti-social. She runs around with her eagle Meh, and some kind of mountain lion called Hunka Munka (Yes, I grew up on Beatrix Potter, I wish they had a jackalope pet)
So, October Sketchfest:
