clearly the problem is that you don’t have a separate tub for slugs like the rest of us do

But our bathroom is too small to accommodate a slug tub. ;~;

I didn’t see the slug part at first, and I thought a fucking leopard was trying to get in your tub XD

OMG, now I’m glad it was only a slug. xD

I like the texturing!

texturing digital painting is a pain aye

Thank you! 83

The texturing was definitely the hardest part but it was worth it. I’ve been trying for ages to figure out texturing and luckily I discovered a brush in GIMP while playing around that gave a really nice texture. x3

Done!
Has a few issues but overall I’m really pleased with how it turned out. Plus I’ve found this style of coloring to be really easy and fun to do. 83

I love when I find references to lurchers in old books. 83
This illustration is by Charles Whymper, done in 1890 for the book The Gamekeeper at Home (which was written by a local naturalist who is buried in my favorite cemetery!) Love how suspicious the dog looks. xD

Examples , please !

Unfortunately it was deleted after I pointed out, but it was so obviously a taxidermy mount, and it was even sitting on a workbench with antlers and part of a kudu mount in the background. xD

Ah, I knew it was only a matter of time before people started posting photos of taxidermy in the fox group without realizing they’re dead, LOL.
