This is Gratch, the baby gar from Terry Goodkind's Stone of Tears; the tirth book from the magic law series. Richard, the main caracter, is being attacked by a huge monsterbeast called a shorttail gar (kaai in the dutch translations). He killes it, but finds out the beast had a babychild...Gratch... It runs to the corpse crying and full of fear. Richard desides to leave it there. Then two huge male gars land at the corpse, ripping it in two and takes it away. Now...Gratch is really alone. That's the moment I wanted to draw the creature..all alone with his misery. Richard will feed it later on in the story, so it survives :D And please don't be misguided by his cuteness!!! Like lioncubs, they are nice and fuzzy. but this beast will grow to a two meter large monster with sharp claws and teeth! Hunting with his bloodflies in the woods. one massive bunch of brown fur and musscles! oh yes, can you find the bloodflies in this picture? hehe!
