Serval Portrait by TitusW Serval Portrait by TitusW
Practice portrait done over the past 3 days before I had to go to work :P I had a sketch in my practice sketches that I really liked, so I brought it all the way to "finished". Quite a bit of experimentation here as always lol. Decided to remove the lineart to give it a far more realistic look, and I really like the result! :D This is probably the best anthro serval I have ever drawn, I love it! :meow: [and yes I realize his ears are a tad too big even for a serval :P But I'm not sure I care to much, so fluffy! :D

[suddenly feeling bad for all of the enslaved and mistreated servals in my world, since they are the lowest of the social classes of Be'vaal :P Who could hurt these adorable little guys?! D: ] 

And again apologies for not posting much recently, today is my first real day off in like... 6 days or so, so I haven't had tons of free time XD And I've been dead tired sleeping like 10 hours a night, which doesn't help either :P 

Let me know what you think, comments and suggestions are welcome! :D

This turned out great, the eyes and the ear fur in particular stand out.

Hello:
 Oh wow, the fur painting looks very realistic indeed, specially in the ears, you did a great work also with the spots, all different to each other and with such different sizes. That gives you extra points for your patience :la: .

 Don't worry, because we know you haven't forgotten about us.. right? :D .

 Keep it up!

Glad you like that! The ears ended up being my favorite part! :la: And I'm not too happy with the spots in the end, but glad you though they were good still! ^^ 

I'm trying not to! D:

Thanks! I will! ^^

Hm, good question. Why do these guys take so much abuse?

Uh, I mean, AWWWWWWWW!

Because I'm a horrible monster! XD Actually it is because of their size :P Like this guy at about 1.2 meters tall can't really fight larger races off very well :P So naturally they get captured and enslaved a lot :/ The beating just goes along with that :P 

Haha goooood, forget all the evil! XD

just say that this person is a new breed of people who've adapted their ears to avoid humans and other predators.

That is an adorable serval! I do like this realistic approach you got here, it is as if you sat one down, and well did it in real time XP

That said, for suggestions, what does a common Be'vaal foot soldier have for equipment, what are they packing? Which species is usually the ones to gladly go out on the front and hunt down and destroy their enemies in close combat?

Thanks! :D And I really wish I could do that haha

Hmm... I have't thought a whole lot about that XD I'd probably have to put more thought into it, but I imagine many of them would have simpler weapons such as polearms, spears, rough swords [like bronze and iron], etc :P And they do have longbows too :P And for the more tribal ones it is more simple things like clubs, stone weapons, wooden weapons, simple bows, etc :P I have drawn a few of those things with characters in the past :P Also more wealthy or important Be'vaal like the wolves have fancier weapons based on human and elven designs. Same goes for armors, the wealthy have about the same still as the humans and the elves have but the less-important have cruder and simpler armors :P    I have been thinking more about stuff like this actually so hopefully I can get some more characters drawn in a little more than loincloths XD     

And the wolves are the ones most likely to go all-in with close combat :P Same with the large cats as well :P The smaller ones are at such a disadvantage because of their size [like the tiny servals, foxes, etc] that they just try to stay out of a close quarters fight, and wars in general :P That is one reason why the bigger the be'vaal race the more important in society because they have had to fight to secure their place :P

But say the smaller races do have one advantage that their larger ones don't, they're stealthy slick mofos, strength may not be their best, but hiding and using the darkness could easily work to their advantage!

AS for weaponry, perhaps citing an Arabic style could work :shrug:
