A Hexapuma is part armadillo? I think I need a bigger truck to run that sucker over. Very well done once again

You're welcome, and know I am contemplating the size of the vehicle to run the sucker over

Hexapumas tend to stay away from inhabited areas on the planet Sphinx. Besides, a hexapuma's about as big as an African lion. With six paws worth of razor-sharp claws. And they're MUCH faster than your average armadillo as well. So even if you could drive a lorry far enough into the bush to find a hexapuma, your odds of hitting him with it are negligible. Hexapumas are scary, scary suckers. The treecats call them "death-fangs".

Of course, the girl depicted here will soon become known as "Death-Fang's Bane" among the treecats.

Well it does look like an armadillo, and here in Texas he do say that the critters natural state is to be flat as a pancake on the side of the highway.

Well, an armadillo doesn't frighten me, less than this monster :D

A stunning piece, as usual ( ;) ), even though I've got to admit that the whole treecat angle is one of the more off-putting facets of the Honor-verse to me.

As for the "artistic license" discussion earlier in the comment section: ultimately what an artist working on a comission tries to do is find the "sweet spot" between the wishes of the customer, the color composition, and the general setup of the piece he or she is working on. For example the piece Genkkis worked on for me [link] the female character in the front actually has rather short hair (and I never mention whether she smokes or not; though she might actually start smoking after what she goes through :p ). Both work in the artistic context since a) the smoking pose gives it a somewhat casual air and b) the hair establishes, well, she's a woman. Plus, I like flowing dark hair. :p

In the same vein, going with a gray treecat would've seriously gone against the wintery, crisp background color scheme (you wouldn't have seen the 'cat ^^ ) and taken away from the focus the "warmer" colors achieve through the contrast here. A black furred hexapuma in that composition also would have been, well, too distracting from the 'cat and the girl. Sometimes adherence to canon simply isn't the be-all and end-all of everything. Or do you think the placement of stars on this piece [link] really represents their actual, real-life location? *shrugs*
