I felt like I had tons of extra time on this one, but wouldn’t you know that that just means more time to waste? Ah well. If it’s spent having fun, it’s not really wasted, right? The drawing featured in this episode is an oldie. Practice of directing the eye through the details was, in fact, the purpose of it.
The character is Etu, an rpg character of mine. He belongs to a race called Pepins. Despite their animal-like appearance, they’re not really any more furry than a human being. Males have shorter ears and tend toward yellow, cream, and beige colouration. Females have long ears and range through brown, light brown, and red-brown. An adult pepin typically stands at just over three and a half feet tall.
Members of this small race possess varying amounts of empathic ability. Generally this means a strong sense of community and extended family, furthermore good relations with other peoples. A pepin that strays to villainy might fall because of his ability to see into the heart of a monster.
