Vanessa The Zoo Okapi

This humble, soft-spoken okapi loving life the city of Auckland loves the taste of manuka honey, soothing mud baths and constant appreciation from the zoo visitors every day of her life. Born and raised in captivity, she had no real experience of living the wild like her ancestors did before her but nevertheless enjoys the peace and comfort of her enclosure.

This all changed when she was taken from the zoo and placed in a horse trailer by a few menacing poachers who are trying to make a quick desperate fortune. But during the whole difficult okapi espionage which involve fleeing from the city and into the countryside, she fell out and ended up in the heart of the New Zealand wilderness with no clue on how to survive in it.

But with the help and advice of the local wildlife and farm animals in the area, Vanessa soon learns how to get around quickly and keep herself alive in the bush while trying to get back to the zoo that she knows and loves. Although she is pursued along the way by feral dogs, clueless hunters and the poachers themselves as well as braving the harsh weather and climate surrounding her. However, a great deal of determination and hope manages to help her through her long and perilous journey to get back home safely and unharmed while exploring more of the world she lives in.


Not much to say about this other that I finally drew an okapi I am happy with :P

Toadflax the Castle Dragon

Though he wanted to join other fierce dragons in their treasure stealing and knight juggling adventures, he was immediately denied and mocked by every dragon clan in the kingdom. This is because of not only his frog like dragon appearance but also his unintentional clumsiness and lack of true wittiness to be one of them.

 Undaunted by their rejections, he sets off to a nearby castle to capture a maiden to prove himself as a real dragon to others in hopes of finally joining them. After countless detours to the kitchen, Toadflax finally finds a lovely maiden in her chamber.

But instead of trying to capture her, he befriends the maiden after a long talk with each other about all simple things in life and their problems. With a new friendship, Toadflax no longer desires the respect and companionship with all the other dragons and tries to make himself stronger to protect his maiden friend from any dragon raids.

After he foiled a nasty dragon’s close attempt to kidnap the maiden to be his everlasting bride, he has been as a hero and guardian of the castle and earned a noble reputation with the people and small creatures of Vallarney. However, he has also earned notoriety amongst the dragons he used to look up to after foiling one of their most loved schemes.

I quite enjoying making this character, he just looks so fun! :D
Hope you you guys like it!
