Tukaness by Nanukk Tukaness by Nanukk
Aaaaaand it's Tuka ^^ Featuring too much shading AND some more custom markings. (I consider the stripes on his face to be custom markings, but the stripes on his body change with each picture x__o) You can't really see it, but his main fur is now two colors. It's more obvious on the unshaded version - [link] He's also got some new scars on his feet from the time when he saved his future mate, Sombolia, from a bunch of aligators as a cub. I figured it was important enough to become part of his character ^^ Then he's got some..."ear-whiskers" xD I don't know what possessed me to make them so long, but I thought they looked kinda cute =3 Other than that it's the same old Tuka.

Also....I don't think I ever explained to my DA watchers why Tuka was one of my favorite characters. In this picture he's posing because he's a snob, but that's part of what makes him so luffable x3 He can be very entertaining in his melodrama whenever he thinks he's being insulted. Of course, since it all plays into his youthful lovablity, once he grows into an adult it all goes away, and he loses all of his defining quirks ;~;

Anyhow, this is for 's project. I don't know everything about it yet, but it's gonna be something with our "Marauders" group and their favorite RP characters. The requirement was that it had a white background........I can honestly say that was NO PROBLEM xD *whitebackgroundsyndrome*

I love that clever expression! And the overall animation is simply superb! That's really all I can think of to say.

Keep up the great work!

Tuka? In Croatian it means turkey.

This looks awesome! Fantastic shading, smooth and soft and absolutely wonderful lines! I think it would make a great statue. The expression is priceless and the character design is adorable.
