Loper by Keithwormwood Loper by Keithwormwood
Female soldier riding a snow flea. She's not actually a standard bearer but of a military body that functions similarly to feudal Japan's samurai. She's part of a noble caste of individuals under a ruling Daimyo's command. The banner bears a more elaborate form of a mon (so that she can be recognized by opponents on a battlefield).

Animator's blue colerase pencil and Photoshop.

You know, scientists have developed an anti-freeze protein in fleas that allow it to withstand and operate in sub-zero temperatures.

The creature is slightly reminiscent of the land striders from "Dark Crystal". Very nice work.
