Tau Reference (Cub) by LanieJ Tau Reference (Cub) by LanieJ
ANOTHER CHARACTER! This guy's probably new to some of you. Those of you who were with me when I was holding a contest to design a character for my comic might remember... This guy!
Of course, in order to introduce him early on in the story, I had to create a cub design for him! I think this might be one of the cutest characters I've ever seen.

He has some VERY SPECIFIC characteristics, though:
1. His eyes are very slanted compared to most TLK style cubs.
2. He has a bi-color tail tuft, and will have a bi-color mane. (This does not count the darker parts of the mane. He has two distinct mane colors.)
3. He's kind of lanky.
4. His lil' head tuft "parts" just over his left eyebrow.

I will slowly be introducing characters for the comic, although many will be withheld until they are introduced in the actual comic. As you can see, some new names have been introduced. Who are they? We'll just have to see!!

Gah. What a sweat heart. I am so excited to work with this guy!

Tau was designed by :iconiraynebow:

Oh wow! Tau is adorable as a cub! D'aw! I just love him! You draw the cutest cubs, Lanie. =3 I can't wait to see him all grown up in your style. I'm looking forward to more reference sheets and your comic as well.
