There is a new mousy in town.
She was recently introduced to the gang from Mouserly Manor, and to Cpt. Toby and his friends.
Her name is Moon.
She was warmly welcomed by everyone. And I do mean warmly...
I've been working on some critter designs to use in illustrating stories that I have been writing.
I adore my little mice from Mouserly Manor, but I needed some mice (and other creatures) that are posable.
I found this background that I made years ago and forgot I had. I found it rolled up in a shoebox with some other items. Moon thought it would be the perfect background for this shot:
The teapot, cabinet and mug belonged to my late mother-in-law. I love playing with these things as it reminds me so much of her. There is an entire tea set and many more mugs with the names of each of our family members.
One of the issues I am struggling with is the size - the small size. I may have to make larger ones for the purposes of photographing for the illustrations, but I so adore the miniature size I am working with that I hope to come up with a way to create what I need in this smaller size.
I think I am getting there - there are a few changes I want to make to this particular design, but I keep getting closer and closer to what I have in mind!
