Warrior Mouse by bluekoinu Warrior Mouse by bluekoinu
My illustration of the week for my animation class I've been very sick the past week 1/2 so now that my health is returning and I have energy again I have combined two weekly illustration topics into one. The topics were "Warrior" and "Cute & Fluffy".

I used acrylics to color this.

Edit: This fellow has found a home in an rp by :iconfwjoat:. No longer just the cute and fluffy warrior mouse, but James the Cute & Fluffy Warrior Mouse!

Woah! This is cool looking. I love how realistic the style is and how much detail you have. It reminds me of Mathias in Redwall (I'm reading that right now) :)

I actually was more inspired by The Secret of Nimh. It wasn't till after I finished the piece did I realise it looked a lot like the descriptions of Mathias from the Redwall books.

I just LOVE the fur on this one, though I thought him a squirrel because of it's texture and color at first.

Very nice color choices.

Heh, that's a really red mouse.

He's very cute! You did a great job on his fur, and I dig his little outfit. Did you base it on anything?

He looks a little squirrel-like, though... I think it's his round nose. Though I might be influenced by the red in his fur.

Either way, it's a lovely job.

It was based on my animation classes Illustration of the Week. I combined two topics "Cute & Fluffy" and "Warrior" and ended up with him. The original is actually a more of an auburn brown my scanner just does weird things to color.

Ahhh. Boy, I can relate; I managed to nab a scanner that turns everything green, including black-and-white sketches.

Was the outfit based on any particular time/culture period?

He's really very appealing. You did a marvelous job.

I based his outfit a bit on traditional bard and medieval clothing. I'm happy you like the result. I really like the pouffy shirt :D

Is this Redwall? Sort of reminds me of Matthias in the book Mattimeo, since when he went on a journey he didn't take his armor.

Oh well. I'll favorite it anyway :)

I guess it could be, everyone says it looks like the characters from the books. I've never read them so I don't know. I just thought of a mouse when I saw the topic "fluffy" and then saw "warrior" and well this was the result :D

He looks a bit like "Martin the Warrior" from the Brian Jaques Redwall books. Good work.

Nicely detailed. I have an animation project this week. I'm supposed to make a 30 second animation based on an existing sound file or song, but I don't have any ideas.
Do you have any?

Haha, Invader Zim. I was thinking of doing that, but it's tough. It seems that my teacher wants either a commercial or a 30 sec. music video.
Wish I could use a sound file.

The Chicken Tonight jingle or Meow Mix, maybe? Or more recently the Mini Wheat commercials.
