*gasp* What's That? by Tyruas *gasp* What's That? by Tyruas
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). :D

EDIT: Drawfriend #688 [link]

UPDATE 1/18/2013 (12:52 A.M. Central Time Zone): Fixed an issue others noticed and notified me with, the picture should look better now. Thanks for the feedback!

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic belongs to Hasbro and DHX Media, formerly Studio B.

Fox Squirrel belongs to Studio Ghibli Inc.

Angel better mind his manners or fox-squirrel will replace him as Fluttershy's pet/friend..

Wow! They look spot on! I can imagine the fox-squirrel scampering up Fluttershy and sitting on her her head even now. I can honestly say you've become one of my favorite artists. Amazing effort and loving the tribute to Miyazaki too!

It's all too easy to die from a heart attack while watching this, but I have to say, Wow. The lighting is one of the best I have seen in many art works, while it looks pretty simple it is exactly what it's supposed to be. great work with pretty much everything, well, minus the forelegs I assume. They look a bit, squarish, don't they?
Ah well, it's not a big deal though! :D

Oh my got that's wonderful. I love Nausicaa and Flutters would so get along with the little critter!

If this was larger I'd use it for wallpaper on one of my computers. It's very good.

Woah, GREAT job on the mane and fur! I like how the background is blurred too so it focuses on Fluttershy and the fox-squirrel~ My only complain is that Fluttershy's front legs look a little odd with how they're bent

Um, if it's just a wild Fox-Squirrel then you can come up with a name. Otherwise, I'm just gonna keep calling it Teto.

Hey, if I leave it without a name, like most things in art, then it's up to the speculation of the viewer to come up with what they believe it is. :)

As a huge fan of studio ghibli movie's and Hayao Miyazaki's work I must say this is fantastic.

Could I have permission to perhaps use it in a fanfic at a later date?

Hmmm... cache emptied, page refreshed, and yet I see no changes. What I meant was the limb closest to the body must look the shortest.
