Redwall Squirrel by Skyelar Redwall Squirrel by Skyelar
A doodle that went insane when I decided to try out the "pastels" in Painter. Long story short, I loooove them.

For anyone that reads the Redwall series (and you all should, really) -- this is Songbreeze Swifteye, from the book Marlfox. She ended up a little beefier than I anticipated, but she looks like she could probably kick some tail, so I'm pretty happy.

Painter, about 4 hours nonstop.

I love this art, but I have no idea who Songbreeze is, exept from Cregga talking about her in taggarung. 

because I have not read Marlfox yet because. . . I HAVE NOT GOT PAWS- I MEAN HANDS ON THAT BOOK! So I had no idea who it was.... CURSE YOU! Rage  I thought it was going to be Fwirl, Jess, Sarobando, Fenna or Armel, I only thought of Armel because she used a window poll was a weapon. Somehow I did not see the green stone on the top at first.

Sounds like someone needs to read Marlfox this weekend! ;D

It's really a great book (although to be honest, I love all of the Redwall books) and I bet you'll enjoy meeting Songbreeze!

Indeed. I wish redwall books were more common in English book stores.

Wow its sooo acurate! I am still reading redwall and the last one i read was Marlfox. If there is anybody wanting to read them start wih The Long Patrol,The Taggerung or Loamhedge. They are my all time favs. But of course all Redwalls are good, right?
DCLeadboot Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Heh, heh... I was thinking, Songbreeze? Going by her greenstone stick... she's a pretty little thing! :aww:
DCatz Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2014
Really great work.

Marlfox was my first Redwall book... I haven't read them in years but I really want to read them all again :D

Good job. I like the warm colors. 
Darkstrike17 Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I love it! I can totally see that as Songbreeze!
belkittykelly Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It really looks like Songbreeze, but when ever I see it I think 'Jess'!

strongbad-joe132 Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2013

Very interesting style.
I rather like it.

I've never seen her done in a style like this before. Good Job!

She looks great! Beautiful tail and eyes.

Well hello Songbreeze.

I've loved this pic since the first time I saw it. =D She looks amazing.
ashleyjordan Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Ah this is so onice, love the texture of her dress and her tail, you did amazing! Aww and I am so happy to see an image of Song, I always really liked her. Her eyes are gorgeous and yes, she looks a whole lot more muscular than I immagined she would be...but maybe this is what she looks like after the journey :) Thank you so much!
Blueberrymuffin98 Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I love love love love love the Redwall series! Your painting of Song's amazing! :D

YAY! GO SONG!!!!!!!!!
brickbreak Featured By Owner May 18, 2012
Ah, dear Song. Love you. Definently one of my favorite characters, certainly one of my favorite books. (Marlfox has great villains too. Lantur is epic, in my opinion. No idea why. I use the name in Spanish class when I need on though. A weird habit of mine.) Great drawing!
PaintbrushPanther Featured By Owner May 13, 2012   Artist
wow... i love this picture, it looks just like how i pictured her when i read Marlfox!
Lindsl Featured By Owner May 10, 2012
Ah, I recognized the Woodleaf right away! Excellent interpretation of Song--strong just like her father. And the color scheme going on here, I love it! It reminds me of early childhood book illustrations.
strongbad-joe132 Featured By Owner May 2, 2012
I think you left out the part that she was an Abbess. But other than that, she's very pretty.
strongbad-joe132 Featured By Owner May 2, 2012
What is that thing she's holding?
NativeFaery Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It was a greenstone or a greenstick or something like that. It was her weapon. I can't remember the name of it though haha.
coloringXrainbows Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2012 this is exactly how i imagined a redwall squirrel to look like *faints*

^^ im only on the first book
Darkrunn Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2011
Absolutely the best depiction of Song during the book I've seen. Love the details in the clothing and the face. The leafy belt design really is the coup e'tat.

Great job!!!! I hope you do more Redwall stuff in the future.
Cowgirl85DDS Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2011
I haven't read that book yet, but I loove the series! She's a beautiful squirrel!
NanashiEru Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2011
Love her eyes and tail. Great job on the family weapon she's carrying.

Heh, cute! :aww: She's certainly a pretty little thing.
Hmmm - Greenwood stick... pretty squirrel... I could guess it was Songbreeze, after I remembered her name! ;)

Great pic! She is far to pretty to be fighting...but her beauty would be her enemies undoing.
Miranthia Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist

Foeseeker-warrior Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2010
