Pickwick by akuma-neko Pickwick by akuma-neko
This is Pickwick, the pet dodo of Thursday Next from the Thursday Next books by Jasper Fforde. Personally, my favourite character. Based off a drawing that I traced over in Photoshop using my tablet. (Yay! it works again!!)
I would have just coloured the drawing directly, but apparently the blue pencilcrayon I used for the under drawing wasn't nonphoto blue. XP

he was so excellent!! sounds a little bit like tony blair...but such a nice man. and clever. oh bugger it, why not? he's my hero at the moment! ;)

he was taking about his books being made into movies, and he would hate that or something (was long time ago now), and he'd rather keep it a secret for the people that actually read his books! yay!

You should really read the Thursday Next books then. They start off with " The Eyre Affair". The author has created an alternate time line where people can buy cloning kits over the counter and make their own dodo pets. XD

That's cool. :) But his feet look rather odd... sharp and pointy on such a soft looking creature. Obviously that's what they should look like, but it's still strange. :XD:

Plock indeed... Very cute pic, though I've never seen the original character before...

well, technically, neither have I. Pickwick is a character in a book, so you can make him cartoony, or as realistic as you want. ^_^
