Natani Grooms his Winter Coat by Twokinds Natani Grooms his Winter Coat by Twokinds
I've wanted for a long time to draw Natani with his winter coat. It's something I need to get some practice on before it actually appears in the comic. So here he is, trying to brush down the fur. During the wintertime, the chest poof becomes a full-fledged mane, and he gets extra fur along his shoulders, elbows, and knees. I also wanted to put extra fur around his ankles, but I couldn't make it look the way I wanted it to, so I left it the same.

The background was entirely experimental. I wanted to do something different, so I sorta modeled it off of Asian architecture. I used paper walls that show some light through, so you can see the bare branches. I wanted to give the impression that it was wintertime, without actually showing the snow or scenery. I know the floor seems a little too shiny, almost as though you'd slip if you tried walking on it. xD I did my best to tone it down reasonably, but I really wanted to have at least some reflection. I actually did redraw the reflected image, it's not just a copy flipped horizontally.

Anyway, hope you guys aren't too sick of seeing Natani all the time. I swear, I'm going to start drawing other characters besides Natani and Keith in the future.

So something about this has always confused me.

If Natani's identity as a male is a direct result of having "her" soul fused with that of her brother's...

Does that make her legitimately transgender? It's not her soul influencing her identity, right? It's her brothers.

Unless there's something I missed.

Isn't Natani a girl?
Stargazer-Bear Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yep!  Though that mental link with her brother, makes her think otherwise.

Natani identifies as male.  You should always use a person's preferred pronouns, regardless of how they appear.
DeaCypher Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2015   Traditional Artist
what do you mean by a person's preferred pronouns?

Read the comic and all will become clear...

i've already read itsigh

Natani identifies as a male despite being of female appearance.
Which some people actually do. Such as my partner has a sibling born male, who identifies as female. He doesn't care what pronouns we use but we do try to call him a her sometimes, and refer to her as a sister. 
In some cases, people who identify as a gender they were not born into will prefer to be called by their identity pronoun.

So in this case, Natani is a male, so we should use male (him, his) pronous when referring to him - despite his female appearance.

Just a tip, to make the floor look a little less shiny, try making the reflection a little blurry. This makes the wood look less smooth.

Try it!
Bonbonaj3 Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Don't forget to make poofy poofy tails. :)
GraphixS6 Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Wait, it's a he? You just said a her a while ago.
Celia94 Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
She's a woman but due to some things that had happened in her life, she feels like a man
Goatmon Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2012
So he's a transdude?
Celia94 Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Mmmmm more or less xD Is quite complicated. She was born like a woman but she got hit by a spell that ripped of some parts of her soul. She couldn't be cured so his brother volunteered for combining their souls so he can fill the 'holes' that the soul of Natani has. That's because she feels like a man but at the same time she's atracted by Keith, who is a man, so she feels in those cases more womanly. I told you, it is complicated xD
meismeduh Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2013
basicly gender confused
Celia94 Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist

meismeduh Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2013

TheBloodRaven12 Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2012
Ha! The funniest possible thing at that moment would be Trace, Flora or Eric walking by without Natini noticing!
Great work btw

She is gender confused. Female body but male in mind.
AlphaWolfers Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
oh so shes like me a tom-boy
gotta-love-furries Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2012
Something like that. She had to pose as a male to get into an assasin's guild with her borther Zen. Then on a mission her soul was shattered by a spell, and some of it was lost. Through a magic ritual, her brother's soul was coppied into the missinng places. One of the things that was coppied from him was her gender mentality. So yeah, she's kinda messed up.
