Spirits in the Wind - FaunGrae's Edition

After the discussion I had with FaunGrae on the Positivity Blog about spirit animals, I decided to draw her spirit animals.

Here's my animals

-----------------

About each animal and their importance to FaunGrae:


Red Tail Hawk- Visited me often, taught me the value of hard work and to always take the time to enjoy the wind on my face

Deer- I often find myself in close encounters with wild deer. They taught me to keep my eyes open and not expect surprises. Also, they taught me that life is beautiful from conception until after death and to cherish life even when you have to make hard choices.

Horse- Horses taught me to listen to everything and everyone around me. They taught me about instinct and how it plays a role in decision. They are the main animal associated with my childhood.

Cat- Cats taught me to think and relax. I have found out from them the value a good purr and stretch can have for a person.

Coyote- My spirit guide. Coyote is helping me learn how to laugh at myself and to roll with the punches. I have been chased by this animal before both irl and in my dreams, and Coyote really tests me a lot. He has definitely used his shapeshifter side, appearing to me as several different animals with the same inner-presence, but feeling complete once he came to me in his true form.

Also I wanted to apologize

Also I wanted to apologize for the three in the back (Deer, Horse, and Hawk). When I started drawing them, I ended up making them too small, so I resized them but it made them appear a little blurry. I tried to clean up the lines around them but they just look off to me compared to Cat and Coyote.

--------------------

Starting to consider opening requests for these...they're actually pretty fun to make.

X3 yeah I'd visit that place

X3 yeah I'd visit that place too. I've always wanted to go to some kind of ruins or ancient buildings surrounded by nature. I think the closest I've ever gotten to that are Civil War forts.

I have hardly been out of

I have hardly been out of Michigan... the only places I have been have all been before puberty... I really can not remember much of those trips.
