Is it just me or is that Possum's tail getting Longer and longer?
Maybe the Sauros lengthened it for him. :)

You're probably right about the tail length. I get a little flamboyant when drawing tails (witness Yerzle's tail in the early strips. It's REALLY big!), and I specifically wanted it to appear longer than Sashi's tail, which is probably drawn longer than it should be.

That, and my consistency,as far as character design goes, is pretty poor (Ottavio's tail is also pretty thin in today's strip, as well).

Maybe Ottavio is a magical creature.

Then it would be a fairy tail! :o

I thought Ottavio was a RAT! The tail looks fine to me... but then again I have no talent for drawing/art, so I wouldn't know proper tail length from big chests *winks at Portia and her bikini* :D

One more example of my failure as an artist....

No, Sashi's a rat, so mice & rats will look more like him. Plus, didn't you see Ottavio hanging from his tail? Or get the direct references Dozer made to him being an oppossum?

Ah, well.

Nope. I'm thicker than Dozer's skull. I have friends who have rats who hang by their tails. And I didn't pick up on Da Doz's refs. So blame me :P :)
