Knitting Needles by thornwolf Knitting Needles by thornwolf
This started off as a sketch, then I started mindlessly coloring it a year ago, and then I just today decided to pick it up and finish it, so technically I guess its a 2010 :)

Available for sale at the FC Art Show!

What a lovely porcupine I like the one sock hanging on her quills, one thing for sure she won't run out of needles anytime soon.Excellent Job:+fav:

This is so adorable, I love knitting and porcupines are some of the cutest critters. She also reminds me of my aunt, dunno why.
Awww, now I want to cuddle a porcupine, probably not a good idea actually.

Thornwolf, this picture reminds me of the art in books I read as a very young boy.
I'm so glad I found this. It's wonderful work.

As a kid I remember reading a book about a porcupine losing his tooth and the mother porcupine rather resembles this.
Cute peace man 8D

A very lovely anthro, one which is seldom seen. The coloring and textures are just lovely, and I love the concept of the overall piece.

this is so well done! I really adore the colours - May I ask what you used to colour it then scan it in to the computer? I use coloured pencils and I haven't been able to A. get that vibrancy in colour and B. have it come out so cleary after being scanned... ^_^

:iconthornwolf:
thornwolf Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2010
When I scan it I use the levels and color balance tool in photoshop to get the colors to match the original, because sometimes the scan doesn't match as well, so it usually requires some color adjustment :)
