I wasn't sure which thread to put this in...
But I thought I might share some of the ink drawings I've done of rats

The Rat King
I combined the idea of a rat king with a snowball flower. The flowers themselves are made of many little flowers connected at a central point, much like a rat king.

Beadle as an Orange Lantern, just because I could.

You're a very good artist! I especially love your take on the infamous rat king.

Thank you!
I always cheered for the Rat King when I was little because I thought the Nutcracker was evil.

I thought you were talking about one of these things!
I don't recall the Rat King of The Nutcracker having multiple heads.

Depends on the version. Sometimes he's called the Mouse King, but the version I remember he's a polycephalic rat. A lot of the illustrations depict him with multiple heads, but I think some stage productions nix that to make it easier on the dancer. This drawing is both a rat king and The Rat King, depending on the viewer.

Thanks!
I plan to do a lot more. And maybe scan in some of the Halloween and Christmas rats I made for my mom last year.

Thank you!

I used micron pens for all these.
I have photoshop and FireAlpaca for digital art.
