a billy-bumbler? by Tacimur a billy-bumbler? by Tacimur
Now that I'm reading Stephen King's Dark Tower Saga I had to try and draw a billy bumbler the way I imagine them (more or less). This isn't supposed to be Oy but a random bumbler. I'm still not sure about the tail... o.o"

Of all the drawings I have seen, this one mostly resembles what I imagine a billy bumbler looks like. I imagine the fur a little darker, more like a badger,(maybe they would have different shades, like many 'real' animals do) but this one is GREAT!! The tail is perfect. Thank you!!

Fantastic rendition! This is pretty close to how I picture them, as well. :)

It's very much like the picture in one of the books where it shows Oy with Jake! Amazing!

it looks like a raccoon to are a great drawer of raccoons, however. you should try again at oy and use your imagination. i look forward to seeing what you come up with.

I'm probably not going back to Dark Tower fan art. Can't even read up on references at the moment since the books are all packed away...

IDK about the markings (because they seem a little too raccoonish), or about the eyes because they seem a bit too small (King makes them sound like they must be huge eyes), but this is far and away the best looking Billy-bumbler I've seen anyone draw! :la: It's almost exactly what I imagined them to look like!!! And I LOVE the tail!!! King mentions that it's fluffy, long, and corkscrewed afterall, so I think you've done brilliantly! You even managed to give it the long (extendable) neck without making the whole thing look awkward (my attempts always turn out ungodly awkward when I try to do the extendable neck) I just love it!

Hehe thanks so much! ^^ When I did this there were not many bumbler pics around. So if you ever come across one (or create one) you feel is closer to your imagination, please show me, I'm curious.
