The Harp's Study by Shadow-Wolf The Harp's Study by Shadow-Wolf
The Harp relaxes in her private study with a favorite book and a pot of tea, accompanied by her companion dove, Hadi. The Harp is mostly blind, but she can get around well enough on her own in familiar places. She can read with the aid of a magnifying glass, which is one of favorite activities to give her voice a rest and be away from others for a while. Hadi is one of her constant companions, he is her guide when she needs it. Hadi flies ahead holding highly visible red ribbons in his feet, so that The Harp can see and knows where to go. If they needed to get home from very far away without help, Hadi’s navigation skills as a dove would be valuable.

I like how you incorporated the feathers into the fur. It just makes it that much more believable :3

How did you come up with the names "Hadi" and "the Harp"? Very interesting.

This is the picture that convinced me to watch you! (This and the one before it, with the Harp and her Shadow.) I also followed you on Tumblr. I love to follow artists because you guys inspire me so much! ^^

Neat concept and characters; I love the design for The Harp, it's a very interesting cross of species.
(Besides, how cute is a guide bird?Heart )
