Sketches: Anthros by Avanii Sketches: Anthros by Avanii
A little compilation of various anthro sketches I have made the past few months, including some not-yet-introduced characters, such as William and Maloki. William is a fennec fox-red squirrel hybrid (though the fox features are much more dominant) from the same town as Elias is. He's an odd-eyed merchant, specializing in small and rare goods for a high price. He and Elias have known each other for a long time and are around the same age (end twenties, begin thirties). To say they're friends is an overstatement, but William does sometimes offer items at a discount, in exchange for one of Elias' creations or information. Earliesr concept art of William was on my Tumblr: [link] Maloki is a hybrid beyond recognition. There may be some dog, lemur, rabbit and fox in it, but no one really knows. Maloki stands out with his/her (no one really knows his gender for sure either) white fur and black stripes. S/he's a little thief, living on the streets and occasionally works as a spy in exchange for food or coin. Still a youngster, around 11 years old, Maloki never tells about his past. The whereabouts of their family, if they are still alive, are unknown. Maloki is incredibly quick, s/he cannot read or write and hardly speaks, but makes up for it with agility and speed. I had a test animation of Maloki up on my Tumblr too, but never finished it: [link]
The other creatures on here are mostly random, made for fun and to fill up the imaginary streets in Elias' town, haha. I do really like the squirrel girl though, I think I'll keep her as well. A sassy Scottish red squirrel girl, I like that. Then we also have a young deer lady, a very insecure little rabbit, two different mice (one is kind of a shady character, the other with the head cloth may be working at the port/on a ship) and a concept for one of the nobility: a lion-ermine (ermion?), combining the royal manes and noble look of the lion with the luxurious fur and ferocity of the ermine. Not sure if he'll keep this look though. Making up hybrids for this little world is so much fun, I have no idea where I'd want to go, story wise, but man, am I enjoying creating these little characters!

Art and characters are to me, Avanii

Please do not use or repost, thank you!

I don't suppose you're a Redwall fan by any chance? XD

Heh, I do like Redwall :) Though the fact that 'good' and 'evil' is determined by species most of the time irks me, I believe in free choice xD But the books are very cute and I like the setting a lot too :)

Yeah, that sometimes bugs me too. I like it when one of the evil characters turns good, rare as it is. I'd just noticed that many of your drawings have a very Redwall-esque feel to them. I bet you could make some incredible Redwall fan art :)

Indeed, I generally like those characters, whether they're from the Redwall universe or not :) I like that style of anthro animals most, people told me I may like Redwall because of the way I draw them, and indeed I do. I've just bought a new book (the Outcast of Redwall) so who knows :) Thanks!

Hey, I wanted to ask you, if I can use two of the pictures here as a reference.
I want to make a sheet for myself but I'm not able to draw any pose in this Cartoon form.

I would give credits of course, but only it it's ok for you.

Which ones did you want to use? I don't mind if you reference to get some of the anatomy to look right, but I'd prefer it not to look a lot like my drawing, but with colour added, you see? So, if you want to use a general pose, sure, I can't copyright a pose anyway even if I wanted to :P But please don't copy the entire thing (they're mostly made up hybrid species too, and are character concepts) so I don't really want them to look too similar. I hope that answers the question :)
