Original Character Miniatures by Avanii Original Character Miniatures by Avanii
Ahh why didn't I post this before? This is the piece I am most proud of right now, drawn in Summer while I was on holiday in Italy :D I had no internet access so all characters' markings are done by memory! I wanted to do another 'all characters' piece like I did in 2010, but in traditional media this time. The paper is A4 sized, and the characters are between 4 and 6 cm across, so they are really small! Derwent coloursoft pencils are not made for precise detail work, but it worked out fine. I guess I took between 30 minutes and 1,5 hours per character. Took me a few days to complete. I used fineliners for the lines, and some eyeshine details are done with a white ink pen. Of course, now that this work is finished, the kitsune Arashi has joined the group, making this artwork incomplete, yet again. ^^; It happens every time. Ah well! Hope you guys like it!

The characters are, left to right, top to bottom:
Millie the mouse, Mortimer the garden dormouse, Benjamin the rat, Tobikuma the raccoon dog, Jack the fox, Ludwig the lynx, Esben the beech marten, Julius the stoat, Tabitha the cat, Lamia the fox, Alejandro the goat, Sibirica the Siberian weasel, Akiko the red panda, Madeleine the cat, Mayra the cat, Tuyen the yellow-throated marten, Zosimos the shimmikie (fantasy critter), and Lin the ferret.

Art and characters are © to me, Avanii

You have such a diverse arrangement of characters, and it's marvelous.  Love the coloring on all of these, as well as the diversity in posing.  Your traditional artwork is just pure eye candy.
