Mossflower's Squirrelqueen by 1-Renaissance Mossflower's Squirrelqueen by 1-Renaissance
Out of the blue I just decided that I wanted to sketch a squirrel, Lady Amber from Brian Jacques' Mossflower to be precise. It was simpler than the rest of my sketches so I gave in to the urge to digitally color it. And this is how she turned out.

I don't have the book Mossflower so I was lost as to how she should look and what's she should wear. So I went with this. She and her squirrels were expert archers and attacked from the trees (that I remember) so she probably wouldn't wear anything that would limit her ability to move quickly and invisibly in the trees.

Well there's the noble and valiant Squirrelqueen, Lady Amber! :D

Aha! My character to be! She looks ready to kick some tail! This is going to be fuuuuun! XD

I have two things to say.
1: Go get Mossflower! Like, hurry! For one thing it makes it better to draw for the characters when you really know them. And it would also be nice to be in the loop with everyone else to what we're expecting of this whole production. But despite not having the book you're doing a scary good job.
And 2: Love the pose! Extremely in character! When I think Lady Amber I think Xena warrior princess.

I know, mate. I borrowed the book from the library and will keep doing that until I'm finished. But I remember Lady Amber from the first time I read the book. :D Know why? She's awesome!

And the pose....hmm. I had to take out my bow and look at myself in the mirror to make sure I got every aspect right in the position. :D

Thanks!

I used to in 8th grade. I'm in 10th now and my mom gave me a bow and arrow shafts for my 15th birthday...last year. I do try to keep practicing but my space is limited.

I took classes for a little bit. And fencing too. But I got busy the minute I got into high school so I couldn't anymore. TT___TT

Wow, marvelous! :D She looks almost excactly how I pictured her! The one thing is that the low front maybe--and this is just to me--suggests that she's a he, considering females probably wouldn't wear that kind of attire. =p I just love her all around, though!

Thanks for that. :D

Well I couldn't give her a dress if that's what you mean. She has to move around freely about the trees and blend in as well as she can. She is a squirrel after all. But still thanks! :D:D

Sure, and yeah, I think the tunic looks great, I just meant the low top. I realized attire was the wrong word right after I posted the comment. =p

Alright, uh... well the part where the slit is on the front? It just seems to show a lot of her chest, which may--due to so many anthro characters having breasts--lead people to think at first glance it's a boy. That's all. Sorry if I'm not clear. ;D

I see. But bear in mind that they have fur and plenty of it. In Nelvana's Redwall series, I recall Winifred not wearing anything at all.

Ah, well you have a point there, then! :D Honestly I'm not to familiar with the series, having seen all the seasons but season 3 only once and a LONG time ago. :) So sorry about that, then. =p

Wow that's great! As to what she looks like, I believe she lost her ear after a fight with the mercenaries. But this could be an image beforehand.:D Great colors!

*WOW*, it certainly beats what I had in mind! :D :XD: Heh, well actually, it was pretty similar. In fact, I'm sure I did upload an old concept art sheet of her if you want to take a quick look (its not colored in, plus the overall work isn't very good).

I'm still just stunned over the work, very nice! :D Now I'm going to have to figure out again how to design Amber now. :D :XD:

Why thank you very much. :thanks: Heh heh, sorry if I screwed up your plans. But I'll take a look at your concept sheet. I'm sure it's not bad at all to make you have to redesign her or anything. :D
