The Clan Leader's Beloved by MoonsongWolf The Clan Leader's Beloved by MoonsongWolf
Ratha and Thakur from Clare Bell's fantastic Named book series. These were some of my favourite books as a child, and I was so happy to finally get a copy of her latest book, Ratha's Courage.

This started out as just a sketch on my lunch break at work. I liked it enough to flesh it out over the course of a few days and then colour it at home.

Medium: Graphite pencil, red wine, coloured ink, ballpoint pen. Fur colouration was added in Photoshop CS4.

Thakur, Ratha, and the Named series are Clare Bell (~rathacat)
Artwork is *MoonsongWolf

This is eerily similar to the Warrior Cats series by Erin Hunter....

There are a few similarities, but you'll find that is true of almost all "talking animal" stories. Most of them share a few common tropes. Of course, the Ratha series predates Warriors by 20 years. The original Ratha's Creature novel was first printed in 1983. ;)
