The new addition

Posted Jul 23, 2019, 3:04:50 PM
With National Breastfeeding Month coming up in August, here's a piece I dedicated to my best friend earlier this year. The new baby is a character I met because she insisted my Muidemi must have more children, the little prince Renvishan. This piece celebrates those precious first few days in recovery following birth when skin to skin contact is so valuable and all a new mum seems to be able to do is nurse and hold her infant. A proud papa and older brother, the young prince Akutso, have stepped in to visit the new addition to their growing family.

      Thank you DragonLadyBarbour! It means so much to hear comments on a piece like this, I'm never sure how certain topics are received. Both child birth and breastfeeding will be covered in my comic down the road, since these experiences are an important aspect in my characters lives 🙂

    The anatomy in her legs came out great, I've seen a lot of people who were good at the human anatomy in a character but were notably less so at the non-human aspects- it helps the piece a lot. You convoyed the sense of tenderness really well.

      Thank you so much, MaskedDragonNamedLin! For some reason my email notifications haven't been coming through when I get a comment, so I'm months behind. My reference library is huge, a big help for this one!
