Wow, people still make these tagging questions? Just go nuts, people!FEATURES!
A. For each of the first 20 people to comment "Follow Freeman!" to this journal, I will feature one of their characters. I'll also tell you what I like about them.
B. If you do comment and get featured here, please do the same in your journal, putting the tagger (aka, me!) in the first slot. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone!
next to featured users who spread this journal!1.
What more can I say? It's Thornacious! An epic dragon with a great personality, greater strength, and quite the ladies... dragon! I love his color scheme and I dig his spike detail, especially around his head. And he wears a scarf too! Dinah will be pleased...2.
A great number of OCs she has created, but my favorite of them all has to be Diplo. A diplodocus with a trying backstory, yet remains kind, curious and playful. Love his color patterns, particularly around his face. Hope to read more about his story! 3.
Btm's adventurous anthro Mako shark Carmena. With a Lara Croft mentality, she's ready for action! Particularly like her tail and hair design.4.
Krojin the Entertainer
Of her dinosaur OCs, Krojin is my favorite. A Draconis spinis, he can come off as aggressive and a bit of a jerk. I particularily love his ears, as well as his out-of-control quills. As if he didn't remind me enough of Ewan he also has a strong English accent! Would love to see more of him.5. 220.127.116.11.10.11.12.13.18.104.22.168.18.19.20.
