Author Notes

4/8/2022, 10:40 AM Enter Robyn Fletcher, main cast member number 10 and bird character number 2. Robyn's actually the first character that I went out of my way to conceptualize before I introduced her, in part because, well, she's not a human character, and I never actually drew an anthro bird to human proportions before. I think it worked out quite well actually, she (and by extension every other bird character I've created since) really fits in with the rest of the cast.

Also I love the effect on the corkboard in the background, the grain texture brush has a surprising number of applications.
