Moose the Rat by Sophie4120 Moose the Rat by Sophie4120
This is Moose the rat! I painted him from a photo, in watercolours.

I scanned it into the computer, so close up it looks a bit scrappy and pixellated, but from a distance it looks ok!

I have a rat that has the same colors and markings, and is also named Moose!
Very nice looking piece.

That's brilliant! Moose looks like one of my rats, Pepper. But Pepper is way fatter!

Beautiful work - and he looks soooo much like the rat I used to have (long deceased but fondly remembered)!

You've really captured the way rats move.

This is absolutely astounding. I thought it was a photograph at first site.

This is not critique on the drawing itself, but those brown blotches on his tail are from his.. Erm, pottying. It takes some good scrubbing with a soft-bristled toothbrush to get it completely out. That's why I started using blankets instead of bedding. Easier to keep their tails clean. There is a shampoo called Squeaky Clean that is very good for use on rats. In fact, my big guy Willard loves it. And make sure the water isn't too cold. It should be quite warm. Warmer than you'd think. Rats have a very high body temperature and chill very quickly. Your fella looks very healthy. His build is impressive. Especially his head.

Thanks :)

The rat isn't actually mine, I painted it for a lady because he had just recently passed away.

I know what you mean about keeping the water warm though - the tail is very important for thermoregulation as well as balance ;)
