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...
