Proud Hummelchen by cottondragon Proud Hummelchen by cottondragon
Commissioned work for my long-term and dear friend Anbessa on FA of his lion taur Hummel :'D I had so much fun working on this as he left me free hand so I took the chance to try out rembrandt light on non-humans ^o^
Hummel is a wemic, a taur species just for your info ;D
And yes, I did have a really hard time drawing the anatomy, mainly the shoulder part of the-äh hip transition oo"

Thank you so much for the DD :'D

I have not known what a taur is. He is my new favorite character.

Wonderfully executed. That tail is quite long though -- I am sure that rocking chairs make him quite nervous.

It reminds me of my Dad.
His zodiac is the lion, his hair is like the mane of a lion...and sometimes his face reminds me of a lion.
Well. What I want to say.
Your art is great. I like it how the mane falls, his look in his face and the goodly pose. >//<
I love the shadings. The contrast of black, white and gray.
And his body is really very imposing.
Hah, I love it!
=3 Great work, good job!

It's really amazing, the detailing is excellent. I agree with the above comments that it looks like an amazing children's book illustration.

My only critique is that the anatomy strikes me as a bit off, his hindquarters seem too small for his body, and quite frankly I was 100% certain that they were a giant penis. My animal anatomy terminology is off - But the part that well, looks like a penis head (the hip?), might be a bit too outlined at the top.

Still, amazing work.

I was told that a lot of people draw them wrong by assuming that the animal body is supposed to be longer than high which apparently isn't the case but I dunno, I went after the reference I got and-I am no wemic expert ;3
Changed the contrast in the hip area, amazing how people see naughty things in a harmless body.....
