Lava Rat by animalartist16 Lava Rat by animalartist16
So I still kinda have an art block, but this was just something fun and kinda loose to do. I haven't done a fiery/lava scene in quite some time, I need to do more of them xD

I wanted to do something to try to break out of it, so Velvaden suggested a fire/lava rat. It had to be cute and cuddly and like smoked cheese (he does indeed). So then I thought of the idea that he's usually fuzzy, but then when he gets mad, he like erupts and catches on fire, and then it makes him all nekkid and stoney, so then he gets even angrier, which doesn't help. And I guess lava oozes out his mouth too.
He'll grow his fur back though... eventually. :(

It's more of a creature inspired by a rat too, so it obviously doesn't have perfect rat anatomy.

This took way longer than it should have too, art block is still hanging in there in that I don't feel up to working on any serious pictures. Dx At least this turned out decent though. c':

Awesome concept, love the art too! It's still very cute and dangerous at the same time, I guess that's why I love it so much :D
