A nice, pleasant way to start the art of 2014 - with the sweet nursery caregover, Ms. Sable Flowers. This was commissioned by snuggems - as I understand it, the character is a nurse for lpes (Little Paws Elementary School). This was a somewhat challenging commission - a little out of my norm, as it's somewhat rare for me to draw pudgy characters, or females in general, for that matter (don't get me wrong - I love females ^^ I'm just not especially good at drawing them). (And no - she's not carrying; she's just a bit chubby with the coming of fall, getting ready for the long winter in the nursery with all the cute little cubs.)
So here she is! She looks like she's ready for a few little cubs to go give her a great big crinklehug.
