Cool! i really love your style, and this tutorials help me to much! =D

Ah... i don't want to bother you but... the man with the giant chinchilla have a critical injury, maybe a dislocated elbows or the rupture of ligaments O-O (I cannot position my arms like this, neither with a huge weight on theme. Sorry!!!!! ;w;)

Lol, yes you are right, that is an impossible pose... a more natural one would be for your arms to be extended more behind you in a straight line. But then the chinchilla couldn't sit upright as easily, so maybe breaking your arms might be worth it to make the chinchilla happy XD

Maybe if te chinchilla had some back legs or something XD, like this:…

Welll she... tried ;w;
(Sorry for the quick scrap i was working when i did that XD So she have some bad injurys... or deformities too XD)
