Romsca by EWilloughby Romsca by EWilloughby
Romsca is a corsair ferret from the book Pearls of Lutra by Brian Jacques. She is yet another character without a good color image, and thus another for the Redwall Wiki collection. The Redwall Wiki, as always, is here.

Also, her facial expression and paw movement suggests, to me, "Bring it, bitch!" That's right.

Wasn't Romsca the Ferret who turned benevolent when the Abbot and the vole were captured?

Either way, this is a great picture! :)

Great work, again Ferahgo. I love this piece of art so much before, but now that I like ferrets a lot more and want to get one sometime soon it makes me love it even more.

I like Romsca a lot; you don't see good ferrets too much in the Redwall series. In Pearls of Lutra there was only a one or two or something pictures of Romsca, and no disrespect to Allan Curless, the illustrator, but they weren't that good to me.

However, your illustration of Romsca is big and in color, with lots of detail and expression. Romsca looks as if she's saying, "Come get some." Maybe she's talking to Lask, huh?

I also especially like Romsca's cutlass, the tattoo she has on her left shoulder, and her headband. I really love your drawings!

Romsca the Corsair! I remember her. She's my favorite character from "Pearls of Lutra". I just felt so depressed when she met her end. Though she went bravely like a true warrior. By the way, I know you hear this all the time, but excellent job! A ferret well drawn I should say!

A little something about Romsca's legs, mustelids have plantigrade legs, not digigrade. Aside from that, she looks good.

I was always cheering for Romsca vs. Lask, even before she turned nice and hung out with the Father Abbot. Excellent fur detail.

Much Romsca love. I saw ferret today, too.

But alas, I must nitpick. Her back legs, from the heel to toe, is very long. Ferrets have stumpy legs. Their ears are also kinda small, and round.

On a completely unrelated note, I never imagined her with boobies O.o

JulepPony Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2005
I was thinking almost the same thing except instead of just, "Woah, boobies?" it was more like:

"Woah. Her bra must have the support of the Hoover Dam to make them -that- high up on her chest. X.x;;"

I've always got to complain about something...

I can always count on you for an accurate critique of my mustelids.

And as for the boobies... certain people -points at Felldoh- have been encouraging me to make my anthros more human-y. =P

*cracks up* One of my best friends is a lesbian. She always asked me why I didn't draw my female characters with boobs. So I did one day. And she was happy. And don't get me started on the Boobie Song...
