Time: About 5 hours
Fluttershy being herself and encountering an animal she's never seen or heard of before-- a fox-squirrel from Hayao Miyazaki's works such as 'Nausicaa' and 'Castle in the Sky'.
Proportions are more or less correct between the fox-squirrel and Fluttershy, though I think the fox-squirrel could be an inch or two taller. Regardless, I like how this picture came out.
I'm actually really pleased with how this piece came out, and I was trying a few new things, not really noticeable but I like those new things(techniques).
