What Are Friends For? by MoonsongWolf What Are Friends For? by MoonsongWolf
Why, for pulling your butt out of the fire, of course! :D

This is my collab with =FFRedXIII for the anthro collaboration contest, which you may find more information about here: [link] He did the lineart, and I did the colouring. I used gouache paint.

The theme was to choose a fable and illustrate it, and we decided on The Lion and the Mouse. If you are unfamiliar with it, you can find the story (with silly-cute illustrations) here: [link] Even the bravest and mightiest among us have moments of vulnerability and despair. Even the smallest and shiest among us have moments of grace and courage.

The mouse is an African grass mouse (also called the zebra mouse), for those who are curious.

Oh, and by the way, I decided to drop a DD recommendation on this, for you. I don't particularly need one, but I think you deserve one for your amazing work on the piece. It would be through ^savagebinn , because I figured better her with a chance then Kat (who is not here right now).

I also dropped one for the other Lion and the Mouse entry, which I believe deserves it.

Awesome! If it gets accepted, though, she should give it to your submission instead of mine, though, so that you can get a little more exposure. And I hope Kat is having fun on her vacation (wish I could take one).

Good thinking about submitting the other one, too. I really liked that one. I was a little disappointed that it didn't place, in fact.

I was disappointed the other one didn't place either, it was great.

And if it gets it, it will probably be yours, as that is the image link I used. You deserve it more anyways, you put more work into it. I don't need exposure anyways, I'm happy with the level I am at. I hope Kat's doing well, my vacation comes up at the beginning of August. Then I get to go to Manitoulin Island.

Still say it's gorgeous.

<Looks at your upload to mine>

1477 views, 77 comments, 240 +fav vs 52 views, 7 comments, 2 +favs.

That is what a difference in popularity (and placing it in the actual contest area) will get ya.

By the way, that wasn't a complaint. I perfectly fine with my popularity level on dA. Lets me make friends.

:lol: I agree, I think as long as you are having here, it doesn't matter how many faves you get!
