First Commission Done!

Um... Molta Latte? by ~the-gneech on deviantART

Commission for WhryCoon of his arctic fox Andrew, driven to... extreme behavior... by an itchy molting season. O.o I assume his pants are on the floor somewhere. I'm also impressed that he managed to leave his apron on.

FUN FACT: I didn't know this until today, but apparently the summer coat of an arctic fox is a very sad-looking scraggly brown mess with bits of their more well-known fluffy white coat still visible around the edges.

Also, for those who are wondering, no, that's not Louis T. Tiger from Suburban Jungle... although that's probably not far off from how he looks these days.

Y'know What? Screw Reality.

Just got back from Madagascar 3. Fun, a wee bit lackluster but enjoyable bubble gum of a movie. Granted, the movies have always been silly cartoon animals doing silly cartoon things, but by the end they pretty said, "Y'know what? Screw reality!" and had critters flying around on glowy sparkles and doing all sorts of bizarre strangeness that reminded me more of a CGI "Heffalumps and Woozles" sequence than anything resembling a coherent narrative. Not that that's a bad thing per se, but the point is, it was more or less a pretty light show and not much else.

Music was sorta weaksauce, the visuals were pretty, the script okay but unspectacular. It had some funny one-liners and neatly resolved the larger meta-arc of "getting the Zoosters back to the zoo," so it's worth seeing if you've enjoyed the series. But... yeah. They're done. Time to move on.

Kind of a bummer, just 'cause I always love movies with a lion hero. ;) But what can ya do?

I suspect Vince will like the tiger. ;)
