Squirkara by CRwixey
Squirkara by CRwixey


The name's derived from the words squirrel and kara, Japaense for shell (as in nut or egg shell, not sea shell).

Sketched with a 0.3 mechanical pencil, inked with a 0.3 drawing pen, coloured with felt tips. Background added using Microsoft Photo Editor and Microsoft Paint. Comments welcome! :)

Squirkara are timid little fellows who conceal themselves beneath a gigantic origami shell. Luckily it’s waterproof, so they aren’t averse to snooping around fields and forests during the odd shower.
Squirkara are strange in that they’re too shy to remove their shells, and think themselves well hidden and protected, even though their tails are permanently on display because the shells aren’t big enough to conceal them. If threatened, they fling a paw full of mud to protect themselves, then beat a hasty retreat while the "threat" is trying to wipe the muck from their eyes.

CRwixeyThanks! ^^

I promise, I'll get on to your Pokemon next, I've just finished an Eeveelution I should have done ages ago.

Squirkara: "Squiiiii!" *Grins at you then pops into its shell and scuttles off at top speed*

CRwixeyThanks! :)

I've got a few more Eeveelutions to finish, so it'll probably be that, along with TheHexGirl's request. And the two new squirrel evolutions...

CRwixeyThanks! :)

I had to colour the shell in Microsoft Paint, since I don't have any cream coloured felt tips...

Welll... it was going to be the last one, but since you mentiond the Grim Reaper Squirrel, I'll do that, along with another white one. So, two more after this one then. :)

Thanks! :)
