Vantid by vantid Vantid by vantid
So it's been ten years now since Vantid first appeared on an Ecco the Dolphin Forum, one of only a few non dolphin avatars in that wee fandom, and in all this time I never made her a reference sheet. I tried many times and failed. Even this attempt isn't great, but at least it's something eh!

So here she is in her full ridiculous glory with bad anatomy and sloppy rendering. Oh well!

..."ridiculous glory with bad anatomy and sloppy rendering."

You call this bad anatomy? I think it looks lovely!
And I'll admit; I did kinda reach out and try to stroke it's fur through the screen. It just looks so soft, haha.

Also I like how your pendant changes from one part of the ref to the other. Where did you even get that. I bet you won it at a carnival.

Wow this is the second time in one day I've run into Ecco the Dolphin! I haven't thought anything about it in 10+ years! But in all seriousness, I love the colours, looking very good! Such a unique species :D
