Penny the Beloved Rat by GoldFlareon Penny the Beloved Rat by GoldFlareon
:icondonotusemyartplz:

A few days ago, *racingwolf's dearly loved rat, Penny, died. R.I.P., Penny. You were a very pretty rat.

I drew this in memory of Penny, and as a gift to Scy (Racingwolf). YES IT TOOK ME DAYS OKAY. Dx It would have been useful to have gotten it finished earlier, but I'm just not that fast. xD Plus I'm really rusty; I basically drew nothing all of last year (as you can tell by the sight of my gallery), but anyway. I don't care. xD I wanted to draw this for you, Scy, to show you that I definitely want to honour her memory and be there for you! =D

I know that
a) In my picture Penny looks more like a mouse than a rat
b) Scy's eyes are weird and stupidly shaped
c) The styles differ between Penny, Scy-Umbreon and the backgrounds... XD
d) I'm aware that it's a bigly lazy and dumb background. xD

Etc. But anyway. I'll stop complaining now. XD I hope you like it! =D And this was why I took forever yesterday to edit SoR's freewriting and what I was drawing during Robots. XD

The Umbreon looks like it wants to eat that tasty mouse. :O

Aw! The rat is so adorable! And in my opinion, you did make her look like a rat! Too bad that such a cute rat had to die...

You're welcome. I can imagine, pets really do become part of the family; heck, remember my new pet hamster I mentioned in my journal? He is not the first hamster I've owned, before him I had another hamster named Chewy. I was basically the only person who actually got attached to her (mom hates rodents, dad doesn't care much about them, and my brothers, while caring, could be a little aggressive when handling her), and when she died I was really depressed for a few days... yeah, I know I sound stupid, but I actually missed Chewy making noise in her running wheel at night; I felt kinda lonely... I hope Scy gets better

/stupidly late reply

They really do. ;~; Yeah. o: Aw, cute! (That's not good. Dx But I'm glad she had you!) No kidding... ;-; Yesterday my friend's dog died, and... I only knew her about a year, but it'll be weird going to her house and not seeing the dog around. >.< And even weirder for her and her family, since Brandi was an inside dog and would always be there. It's just...terrible when a pet died. ;~;

I think she's better now. We've had lots of fun story writing sessions (and that iScribbling we did the other day XD) so that's good.

xD Thank you! 8D It's awesome you think so. xD I haven't really been able to do 'realistic' fur before, so this is a start! Haha, thanks!
Glad you like it. :iconflarelaplz:

No problem! And maybe you should do a tutorial, or maybe even do a picture of Flare in that style, like a reference sheet or something!

O:! That would be a good idea. Once I get a few other things I need to draw first out the way. XD I changed Flare a bit (plus hopefully improved from my current ID xD) so I'd like to redo a picture of her for my ID/reference sheet. ^^

WOW THIS IS SO AMAZING WHY ARE YOU SAYING STUFF IS STUPID??11??1?ONE!!!??11!!1!!

I LOVE how you drew Penny! She looks so happy! And I love how you did the fur! It looks really detailed and awesome and I really want to learn how to do fur like that! And I don't mind that the styles are different; I actually really like it the way it is! And how the fur is different on each of them but really fits the animal/pokemon! Also, you are REALLY bigly good at drawing rats! :iconpetratplz:

And I dunno why you're talking about it taking you days...I could NOT draw something like this in less than a few days! And I don't mind at all because this is an AWESOME picture and I really love it!

This definitely made me MUCH happier! Sometime soon I'm going to print this out and keep it with my other special drawings/memory things! It's great that I'll have such a great gift to remember her by! Thank you so much for drawing this for me! =D

SORRY I JUST WAS UNHAPPY WITH SOME THINGS BUT OH WELL!!1!ONE!!!111

8DD YAY! Thanks! I actually used the picture of all our rats as my reference, and I used the picture of Drea as part of the pose reference. xD WOO!!! I'm glad you like the fur! I wanted to make it detailed, and it turns out it didn't take that much effort. xD Well, it kinda did, but it wasn't as difficult as I thought. O: All I had to do was colour it one colour, then get the burn tool and do lots of strokes all over (THAT took ages xD) and then I used the lollipop tool (or whatever it is. xD It looks like a lollipop to me) to add the brighter strokes, and then used the burn/lollipop tool as general shading to place dark and light parts. c: That's good! Haha, I was unsure about having them different. xD I'm glad! WHY THANK YOU. C:

Oh, I just meant that I really wanted to show it to you sooner! XDD And I know you were bigly sad about it (obviously D: ) and I really wanted to cheer you up sooner, but I'm glad I finally got it done now! xD Thank you! =D I also really wanted to tell you about it before it was finished, but I kept having to restrain myself. XD

I'm bigly glad! And happy that you're happy! ^v^ XD REALLY?! I'm bigly honoured! It is. No worries at all. ^^ I kept meaning to draw you something, so I'm glad I could draw something worthwhile and that meant a lot! :iconspazhugplz:

WELL IT'S AWESOME ANYWAY SO YOU SHOULDN'T BE!

Oh, really? That's so cool! I'm glad my pictures could be helpful! Well, it's bigly detailed! Really? That's cool that you found a god and easy way to do it! (Yeah, I would think that would take a long time!) Haha, I call that the lollipop tool too! Well, I think it worked fine!

Well, that's okay! I know pictures like this take time and I'm really glad to be able to see it now! And well, it was an awesome surprise!

I'm glad you are! You should be! It DEFINITELY means a lot!

OKAY I SUPPOSE I SHOULDN'T THEN. xD

Yeah, they were bigly helpful! I was glad you had put a picture of her up, otherwise I wouldn't have known at all what she looked like. Yay! 8D Haha, yeah, I was really glad about it. And I hadn't tried it before, so it was lucky that it worked! (It did. xD) XDDD GO THE LOLLIPOP TOOL!

Good point. xD Which explains the lazy background, but we all know I do lazy backgrounds! XDDD Yaaaaay! I love surprises. xD When they happen to me and when I can surprise others! (In a good way, of course.)
^-^ I'm glad. :iconscytherlaplz:

OKAY GOOD!

I'm glad they were! And that I decided to put up pictures! (And that picture of Drea XD). And yeah, that's really awesome it worked on the first picture you tried! YES!

Yeah, I don't mind simple backgrounds! I think it works for a picture like this. Yay, me too! =D
