Virginia Opossum as Totem by Ravenari Virginia Opossum as Totem by Ravenari
Virginia Opossum as Totem

I've never drawn one of these before, and we don't have them here in Australia. But I've always found opossums to be really interesting, omnivorous animals. They remind me a lot of the quoll. :) This was a lot of fun to draw, and the beautiful, awesome Torey suggested it in my LiveJournal request list.

Nice picture. The opossum's face is so cute. =) And the colours in the background blend really well.

Yeah, opossums are pretty cool, but of course possums are better. =P

Possums are so ugly they're cute. I get quite a few around where I feed my stray cats. Unfortunately, they poop where they eat. X_X

Great colors in this.

Well they're not really possums in the same sense as Australian possums, but I still like 'em.

But I'm sure I will do a rat in this style too eventually! Heh.

Hey great stuff, it's beautiful! Opossums are my favorite animal by far; I rehab them here in the US and they truly are such interesting little critters! Also not trying to be a smart ass or anything, but they're actually omnivorous, not carnivorous. ;)

That's because I'm in Australia and we have a ridiculous amount of genuine *possums* here. Lol. :)
