Reblog if it is okay if I make fanart of your OCs

Knock yourself out, there’s plenty to choose from.

I actually find this information REALLY HELPFUL when I visit someone else’s gallery and like their OCs. Not everyone is comfortable with fanart and few artists post whether or not they are.

You never have to ask!

clockworkcreature:

Help us get rid of all of these fur scraps! They are listed on our ArtFire, priced at cost of shipping within the US! In other words, we are giving them away. They are great for costume accents, doll hair, plushies, cat nests, whatever you want!

CLICK HERE!

Just gonna say I ordered two bags of this stuff and it arrived Thursday, and it is the softest and most lovely fur. Just luscious. you weren’t kidding about it being quality! There are so many crafts and projects I can use this for. But also, there is SO MUCH FUR that I am going to be making more projects for myself just so I can find a reason to use it.
Oh, and the cats love it! To any of my followers or anyone looking at this thinking of getting some, anyone who like making crafts like art dolls or furry things, if you need random fur scraps of no particular size or shape, get your paws on some of this stuff! Do it now! It may well be the best scrap fur you will ever find. And basically FREE.
The pieces in my bag were mostly in strips and totally random shapes. However, there is definitely enough to use on a fursuit head/mask as I plan to do and I am even going to be able to make handpaws out of what I got. my paws require both black and white fur and not one enormous piece. In my bag, some of the white pieces were rather big. If I decide to just stay with a partial for my suit, I don’t think I will need to buy black or white fur at all.

Forgotten Wanderer by graphiteforlunch
The full-body pose in the reference I just made for this feliform creature was calling me to do something more with her… So here’s a female nimravid (extinct false saber-toothed cat), Graphite, padding her way through an alpine valley. A storm is rolling in from the mountains.
In her time, Earth was, on average, warmer than it is now, so biomes like this might have been more uncommon or distributed differently. Still, in those rocky, high-elevation areas away from the equator, one could imagine a nimravid filling the ecological niche of a cougar or snow leopard. Nimravids were a diverse bunch, ranging from lynx to lion size and filling a variety of roles in the food chain very closely paralleling the roles of modern cats. For example, Dinaelurus was built much like a cheetah and likely ran down its prey in similar fashion. So perhaps Dinictis or some other nimravid adapted to an alpine lifestyle like many cats we have today.
We do know that nimravids were incredibly violent towards one another, with as many as 1 in 10 fossil nimravid skulls showing signs of being killed by other nimravids with bites to the head using their sabers. Hoplophoneus (a larger nimravid with longer sabers) was known to kill smaller Dinictis nimravids this way. The competition between lions, leopards and cheetahs on the African savannah is perhaps a comparable situation. I imagine that it would make sense for some of them (like our friend Graphite here) to adapt to this danger by seeking ever more remote territories and coming together only to breed.
I look forward to more discoveries in my lifetime about these fascinating prehistoric predators.

Lioness of Light by graphiteforlunch
This is dedicated to those who have held me when I felt I could barely breathe. This is for the ones who have spoken truth and love into my life. This lioness is a bringer of life and hope. She brings light that shines on the dark places and she brings also the sweet relief for the sad things hiding in darkness. With power she lets them know that they need not stay hidden in their shame; they are loved unconditionally.

The Fire Comes by graphiteforlunch
This particular nimravid, who appears to be affected by vitiligo, is supposed to be a member of the cursorial Dinaelurus genus.
