Squirrel Power! by SquirrelShaver Squirrel Power! by SquirrelShaver
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

So here's something out of the ordinary! In case some of you haven't heard I will be tackling a side project of my first "official" creator owned characters based on my now infamous DeviantART name "Squirrelshaver".

From left to right: Macy, Sable, Brisk, and Roxy

These caracters were originally created as cartoons, and that will be the main focus of the project, but for Phoenix Comicon this year we will kick off their debut with these four lovely models at out booth. :) I really tried to pick girls who have what I consider girls who have the "DeBalfo Girl" look to portray these characters and the requirements I set for myself proved to be less common than I expected. I always had three core girls in mind that I would use for a project like this but the fourth was SO hard to find. I kept my standards up and after a lot of trolling like a creeper at conventions and on Facebook I finally found the girl to round out the group.

There will also be art prints available done by me and as soon as I have all the drawings for the characters finished up I will get them online as soon as I can.

They're all dolls but have to say that I think I like the hand drawn versions better.

Haha. No no, not my daughter. Though my the girl who made the costumes did ma a tiny little tail and ears for her. Super cute!

The girl in this pic is my wife. :) She was my first choice in casting of the the "squirrel girls" and the inspiration for the core character Brisk.

Thanks! It takes a particular girl to be a "DeBalfo Girl" so it's nicest hear that people notice. :) I can't lie though, I'm partial to Brisk as well.
