I thought it was about time Rowan got his own ref sheet! :la: I love this lil' guy - seriously, the whole "Possum" family (PiercexBlossom) is my favourite. :aww: See what I did there, Kate?! <-- Hehe, inside joke. :giggle: His background info and personality are coming soon... Kate, it's up to you! :meow: :heart:

The reference colours read from left to right: Base, shadow and highlight. Thanks for looking, everyone! :hug:

Of all the characters, I think Rowan is my favorite. (Even though there isn't a lot written about him yet. :giggle:) He makes me wonder what a full blooded Florian looks like....

From what his mother looks like, I'd say they're beautiful. :love: Well done!

He looks so sweet. A little mischievious perhaps, but one can't help but to think he's just a really sweet little foal with all that downy foal-hair. :aww:

I'll give it you, you have a KNACK for designing kickarse characters, and this little beauty is no exception. Beautifully portrayed, kickbum character. :meow:

KATE! If you can see this, congratulations for this beautiful little cherub. You deserve some cred too, m'love! :blowkiss:

You girls have done a top job on lil' Rowan. :icongrouphugplz:

Doesn't Rowan mean 'Mountain Oak'? I wasn't quite sure because ages ago I used that name for one of my characters.

I was waiting for this little guy's ref sheet! He is such a likable character. His name is very fitting, and he is definately a blend of both parents. I love his asymmetry, with the ';petals' on his side. Great design as always, Michelle! :heart:
