So! After some reflection and lots of questions on why I have a "monster" for my user icon I decided to create a new oc to represent my artwork
The TsaoShin character has been my brand identity for about 10 years now and though its had a long history with me, I feel like it no longer represents the style or subject matter of my artwork (not that I don't or wont draw things like that anymore).
I created this new character based directly on my cat Grendel. He was an easy choice since he is my muse and is always beside me while I work.
I'll slowly be changing my user icons, banners, and branding across my networks over the next week. Not really big news but lots of work for me -_-;
See the ref sheet for my other OC Rivers here:
