BruBadger's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United Kingdom
Profile picture by AlexRaccoonGlider
Tagged by DCLeadboot. I've done something like this before, but he wanted to find out about another character of mine, plus I kind of wanted to get my previous journal entry out of the way, basically.

1. Post these rules.
2. Post 8 facts about your character.
3. Tag 8 other characters.
4. Post their names along with their creators' avatars.


1. She's older than Roocan - 34 years to be exact.
2. She first appeared in the Roocan comic in 2009, making her the last of the 3 main characters to be introduced (though no other new major characters have really debuted in it since).
3. She's lived in the city pretty much all her life, hence she doesn't speak with a "country" accent like Roocan and Uncle Skunklin do.
4. She's into exercising and healthy eating; one of her biggest regrets was when she only ate 4 A Day one day a few years ago.
5. I originally thought of her as being a single mother of a young boy who'd be revealed soon after her first appearance, but I didn't get around to that and I do wonder if it'd be a bit too late now.
6. I've also tried tweaking her personality as of late, trying to make her seem more enthusiastic and quite cheerfully fitness-crazed; earlier on, I guess I basically made her more of a "Deadpan Snarker", but I started thinking maybe having a sensible female character reacting typically to a goofy male character all the time seemed a bit clichéd.
7. I also thought of her as being Roocan's landlady when I came up with her, but I ended up casting her as working in a gym instead.
8. Like with Roocan and Roocanuki, Vixelle also has a Japanese counterpart: Vixune.

I know I tagged some others before, but I'm not sure this time.

Journal History


Horror Movie
I guess there's a bit of a story behind this pic; since I noticed a lot of artists are taking part in this Inktober thing this year, it inspired me to have a go at doing a traditionally inked pic of my own, though I don't think I could really do this sort of thing every day of the month, which is what Inktober is apparently all about. I've also been working on new designs for these two kangaroo siblings and thought about remaking old pics of Kate & Kurt with their new looks. To be honest, I couldn't really find anything I thought would really work as far as that goes; instead, I decided to draw them in a scene based rather loosely on a comic story I made a while ago which features these two and was also their first proper comic adventure. The title of this pic is also the same as that comic's title.

While working on this pic, I admit I was quite pleased with how it was turning out but later on I noticed more what seemed like several mistakes I made that I feel kind of separate me from the pros and other artists I admire. One thing I'm a bit ashamed of here is that I tried drawing pen strokes for Kate's fur texture which I felt didn't really look as good as I hoped, so I ended up using a bit of white paint (and some digital editing) to remove them afterwards. It bugged me since there seems to be this trend in which certain artists will take photos of their traditional art along with the tools they used rather than scan it as if to show and prove how flawlessly it turned out, something I doubt I could really "pull off". I've also been thinking that maybe I don't really use enough tags for my artwork as well.
This character once appeared in a Roocan strip from last year, and I decided to make standalone artwork of this Japanese kitsune counterpart of Vixelle as I did with Roocan's tanuki counterpart Roocanuki quite a long time ago now. I also wanted to try out a set of watercolour crayons I got a while ago for a simple background of various colours here.
Kate And Kurt By CalamityKangaroo
I commissioned this pic via CalamityKangaroo's Hurricane Sketch Commission Drive (Closed). I've liked his style and enjoyed his cartoons for a while now and thought it'd be fitting to commission him to draw my own two kangaroo characters (following the alternate character designs I experimented with quite recently), which he did a great job of here. :)

Birthday gift for AlexRaccoonGlider: this skunk is a fairly new addition to his characters. :cake: She's described as being from a family of circus acrobats. :)

Bru Badger Designed Differently
I admit that I've been having feelings of inadequacy about my artwork again, feeling like many others are making definite progress with much to show for it while worrying that my own art has perhaps stagnated, so I thought I'd try and push myself to draw Bru Badger in a different style, a more detailed one than usual. It was inspired by looking at photos of real-life badgers as well as some other artists whose detailed styles have impressed me; I guess it's most noticeable with the head and face here, but maybe the rest isn't really that different.  While this style may have more detail, I'm unsure if it's truly "better" than my regular, more cartoonish style - drawing in this style looks like it'd take longer to do, as well as harder to keep consistent (I think I could be a long way off from a simple/cartoony style that just really "works"). I guess there are plenty of other things I ought to improve such as backgrounds, digital work and shading. Coincidentally, one of my friends has posted some similar style experimentation work aiming for a more realistic look on the same day I'm uploading this.
After I sketched Les and Arno either on or in a couple of giant bubbles, AlexRaccoonGlider offered to do some further work digitally as a kind of commission. I'm glad I accepted since he did a great of inking and colouring the characters as well as on a bubble-filled environment here like I envisioned. ^^
Zzyzx And Sibena
I like a lot of Thyloguy's characters and their designs, particularly these two from his Z. O. R. T. S. series. Here are Zzyzx Autor, an alien space otter, and Sibena Sharkazoid, an amphibious cyborg. I feel like I haven't really done much in the way of any artwork for Thyloguy, but I wanted to draw something for him and I hope it's OK that I did this. Also, I experimented by using watercolour pencils to colour this pic, though I guess they don't really have any special effect with the regular drawing paper I used here.

Z. O. R. T. S. belongs to Thyloguy
McKenzie McFox
Birthday gift for Daily-Needs: McKenzie here is one of the main characters from his Daily Needs comics. :cake: I'm sorry if this gift art seems to have come rather late in the day; I've been busy for most of today, but I hope this will still be appreciated. :)

McKenzie McFox belongs to Daily-Needs
Grenley InAction
I've made bunches of drawings featuring Grenley similar to this one before, but I guess it's been a while; also, I went for all full-body drawings of him here. These drawings were largely based on suggestions and references provided to me by AlexRaccoonGlider but the bottom-right one was just something I decided to add and was based on a pose from a book about drawing that I own (the pose being part of some instructions about how to draw a wizard character, funnily enough). I may do more of these or make adjustments to them if they aren't quite satisfactory.
Roocan Strip 224
Roocan may have a new favourite music genre. He goes to the mall to check out a song that's possibly been heard by quite a few people now...
17th Birthday Scribble Challenge
Here's what I came up with for DA's birthday celebration this year, a challenge which involves using a template as a starting point. I guess this may look pretty weird; I had to think pretty hard to imagine this pic and how to use or connect the scribbles.

What should I focus on this year in terms of drawing? 

19 deviants said Refining my current style
3 deviants said Developing a new original style
3 deviants said Taking inspiration from a style of one or more other artists here
1 deviant said Drawing more like an established, mainstream style (e.g. Disney)
No deviants said Undertale fan art

After the current arc, can you make a Roocan story where the character's can't silence their growling bellies?
SammyWhiteFox Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2017  Student General Artist
Wow...over 200 Roocan comics...Where can I start? (other than comic 1).
BruBadger Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, I'd say they look or feel similar to the way they do now from around the 100th strip or so.

GoodCaptainClack Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2017  Hobbyist Writer
Hello there! :wave: I think you might remember seeing my name before; I am the guy who several years ago wrote all those 'epic' length Raccoons stories about Ralph and Melissa's relationship, including the one in which they became parents :giggle: And also the guy who threw up a ton of Raccoons screencaps and collages as well. Yes, you might say a few years ago I was pretty proactive in that show's fandom :D

I've seen that quite a few of my friends are into your art and particularly into your webcomic. I must admit I haven't seen much of your art but from what I have seen I really like how you draw chubby characters, real cute :aww: I have quite a fondness for chubby characters-'specially-females myself! Though I have my limits when it comes to that :D I myself have a chubby coyote gal character I created myself. Yes as you might guess I still write to this day although my Raccoons love has definitely cooled off over the years (still very fond of RxM however!) and I write much more sporadically than I did before. I'm trying my hand at more original characters and work but it's been a bit of rough going so far. Of course mainly posting literature on a site intended primarily for fanart is going to be a major hindrance right off the bat. Would probably help if I could draw them, but my artistic abilities are severely lacking and I just don't think I have the patience to become even a semi-decent artist, unfortunately :( (Patience is a virtue I am sorely lacking in!)

But yes, I do like the art of yours I've seen, and I would like to check out more of it when I have the time. In particular I definitely want to give your Roocan comic a check-out during my free time although since I've noticed you have a lot of strips it'll probably take me forever to go through them! But like I said, I do like what I've seen of your art and I look forward to interacting more in the future! :)
