The Trapster by MinnaSundberg The Trapster by MinnaSundberg
~
If you stumble upon a trap in your neighbourhood, who do you call? The trapster! Who's the Trapster, you ask? My, my, you must be new to these woods. The Trapter is an eccentric loner of a fox who collects traps with a burning passion and will remove any found traps for you. He won't even charge for his services, the trap itself is payment enough. .
~

The colors, oh the colors! I can't decide if I like or hate them (I definitely don't love them). On one hand I'm glad I dared to use a combination that is slightly outside my comfort zone, but on the other hand: blaaah. x<

The uncolored lineart was posted at the bottom of my last art journal entry, so a lot of you may already have seen it. But for those who haven't and want to, here's the link to the entry in question: link

He looks at them and goes "aaaah". Or he plans to one day catch everyone in the forest with them. o_o

Are you kidding me? I love the push and pull between the violent red foliage and the turquoise snow. The fox pulls it all together. There's also this pleasing symmetry created by the large body of snow and trees and the bodies of red next to it. Overall, this is a very pretty illustration. Also, what kinds of trees are those? It just slipped my mind but they're the weirdest things ever. There's a solitary one at a park I go to and every time I see it I just wonder how it got there.

Birch trees! They're the best kind of trees, because they want to look like zebras. x>

I'm not gonna lie, Furries, or even anthropomorphic animals plain freak me out. I'm not hating, its just how it is for me. That being said, this is a masterpiece. I love your style and your colours. They work amazingly well.

Are you kidding? Colours are great! Line art is very fine too, so the final result is like taken by some late 19th century illustration (something like Arthur Rackham or so). True masterpiece!

It is also advised not to go to his home uninvited, after all those traps are put to use at times.
