My half of an art trade with C. Martin on Artwanted. This is her character Neosho, a wolfxsquirrel demon. This was a little challenging as the person who owns this character draws in the animé style and I do not and have never had the desire to push my art in that direction. I think I went a little overboard. It just didn't want to be background-less. Colored pencils (pentech and prisma) on bristol board.

I created a six-part tutorial following the progress of this image, for those interested here they are:
Part One: Sketching and Base Color
Part Two: Background
Part Three: Mid- & Foreground
Part Four: Character and Leaves
Part Five: Character Con't
Part Six: Fur
