This fellow could be a pirate - he certainly has the demeanor and the eyepathc and earring help give him a good Seagoing vibe. Nice work with the muscles and the wrinkles in the skin. Those always give me a miserable time.
Just finished faving all your redwall races series, and I must say; they all deserve it. This piece is definitely my favorite, his pose is perfect, confident and menacing, and his snarl is the perfect touch to complete it. The colouring is excellent, it has a painted feel. The hare is my second favorite; the monocle just makes that piece. This series is brilliant. I would love to see it expanded with other races like badgers or moles. Keep up the good work.
It's a part of the Mustelidae family, in the same group as weasels and ferrets. They're native to Great Britain and the really north part of North America. Much like a Least Weasel, except bigger, and with black-tipped tails.
Nice, but why do these guys always have to be evil? Just saying. That was always my one problem with those books: kind of speceist. I mean, why do all stoats, weasels, rats, and what not have to always be evil? I would have loved to have seen a Redwall book with a Fox or a Ferret as a good guy. Maybe even one with an evil Badger. Instead, whatever race you're born in, you're automatically that alignment.
It's not that Brian hates the animals or anything, it's just that in Britain the animals have a stereotype in stories of being evil, and history of being annoying. (Foxes and rats especially, stealing chickens and causing the black plaque)
And Blaggut from the Bellmaker reformed. He actually is one of my favourite characters.
