EBC: The Hunt by KaiserTiger EBC: The Hunt by KaiserTiger
Marcellus slowly edged his way through the tall grasses of Lightning Empire's northern territories, keeping his body as close to the ground as he could manage. The scent of rabbit drifted tantalizingly across every breeze until finally the young caracal spotted his gray furred target. He stopped and readied his paws for the pounce, one he knew needed to be fast for such quick prey.

As Marcellus waited for just the right moment, the words of his mentor echoed through his head; "Today's your solo hunt, Marcellus. You either pass or fail your hunting training depending on your actions today. Use everything I've taught you." The caracal's whiskers bristled with excitement. He wanted nothing more than to become a Lightning Empire gladiator and completing this would put him one step closer.

He was not going to miss this time!

...and he didn't because now Marcellus is done with his hunting training! :dummy:

Still fighting art block. Gah, I have had no inspiration what so ever to sit down and draw lately. :/ Sorry guys. I have a couple full picture commissions that I know I need to get to so I decided to do something with a quick background to get me back into the mood of doing full pics, then this happened. x3

Yes, I did draw/ink/color every single blade of grass here. xD A looot of work but I like the effect better.
