Boy, thumbnails do weird stuff to images. From the small version, I thought this was a plush kitten of some sort (your hand seemed part of the body), and its head was smoking, perhaps about to burst out into flame.
Thanks! I have 2 more Fledgies and a realistic rat to do, then the slate is clean. In the New Year I will be starting a mentorship with a character designer that I adore, so I won't be able to squirrel much time away for commissions, at least not elaborate ones. Something like a Fledgie or a very simple Rattie Dollop would be doable though.
