The Perfidious Multi-Armed Mech-Rat

Another sheet out of my "inspired by" sketch book. (It's not hard to see that Jake Parker's Missile Mouse wielded influence on the design. Well, to be more accurate, I did this rat-character once before, but without that mech 'n' missile equipment and that retro-future-suit. Back then, I named the character Makepeace Thackertail aka The Rat in the Coat.)


  1. Florian, du bloggst ja schneller als dein Schatten! Diese Super-Bausatz-Klamotten möcht ich auch gern haben(incl. Zusatzhände)!!

  2. Thies! Ja, das junge Blockglück macht mir Post-Flügel, 'mal sehen wie lange ich die (Flügel-)Schlagzahl durchhalten werde. Den 'Mech-Rat Supersuit kann ich dir im Übrigen gern' mal borgen. BTW, wie Oliver bereits in Aussicht gestellt hat, werden wir wohl Ende Jänner ein kl. Familientreffen abhalten können...

  3. This one is just fabulous !! :) Great work !!

  4. this one is pretty neat. the entire concept of your posts is very cool. your characters' names are absolutely incredible...
