Here's a critter from my current sketchbook. The "Porcu-plat" has features of a porcupine and a platypus. His sharp porky quills protect him and he can use his tail to throw quill darts at enemies. He digs for his food, usually grubs and insects, in the ground with sturdy little feet and then he pokes in the dirt with his large birdlike beak. He is not very big, but nobody in the forest bothers him.
"Porcu-plat" is ink on sketchbook page, about 3" x 3", September 27, 2014.
