The Cheormhugh by PeterDonahue
The Cheormhugh
The Cheormhugh is a fantasy species of my own invention, based on my own cat. 

The cheormhugh is a little-known cryptid from proto-celtic lore. A six-footed wurm, it dwells in secluded caves, drawn to crystalline aragonite deposits. A very tidy creature, it treads the crystals with its paws, then urinates Spirit of Hartshorn, creating deposits of Sal Volatile, also known as smelling salts. A subspecies, cheormhugh soithargaith, is reputed to haunt silver mines and cause explosions during its hygiene rituals.

Cheormhuigha do not breath fire, but they can cause fires when grooming. The friction of their fierce, tongues on their fur causes electric discharges, which can ignite cave gases.

The cheormhugh sees through darkness, and with its third eye, through the veil of physical existence. Thus many legends have arisen around cheormhugh-seekers who, upon encountering the beast, gain either clarity or madness.
Pluto Heart and Whale T-Shirt by PeterDonahue
Pluto Heart and Whale T-Shirt
I was disappointed with the t-shirts out there--most of them were from 2006 when Pluto was "demoted" to a dwarf planet. It's time we had a t-shirt based in our new images of Pluto from the New Horizons flyby.

For sale as a t-shirt and other things here:
Rudek and the Bear #68 by PeterDonahue
Rudek and the Bear #68
I really wanted to draw a musk deer because of their cool fangs... but then I learned only male deer have fangs. Oh well.…
Rudek and the Bear #67 by PeterDonahue
Rudek and the Bear #67
Tried a different approach to shading. Dramatic lighting seemed appropriate for that last panel.
Hope I got the Belarusian right :3

Oh God, I love your comic, from the side of graphics and characters (this is great - I love your style of drawing); and from the side so to speak I'm Polish history lover, (I like the whole Polish history but also the years 1918-1939), and just this comic stirs in me, my feelings, and patriotic very amuses me because beautiful and amusingly shows us the truth about the Poles, our strange way of thinking and some funny situations, XD - just for me, this is a masterpiece :D

Sorry, please don't be angry but I wanted to ask are you speak or writes in Polish? :)

O Święty Jacku z Pierogami....

Dzieki! :D Ślicznie dziękujęl! :D ^^ - mainly in my Anthro graphics, I try to show historical scenes from the history of Polish, battle, arrmors and weapon - military, famous places in Krakow, the Polish Traditions and people, sometimes from some polish famous books or movies, etc., after that I travel after Poland with my camera and I am doing Artistic Photos - interesting natural and historical of lately on historical places, traditions, and the most artistic photos of my Kraków, etc. Also I make Polish handmade; and I am the representative of the world's only tradition on the list of UNESCO, I am building the famous Kraków cribs (nativity scenes), which for some time you'll see because I will started building new crib on our famous year contest ;)

I see that you like the beginning of the 20th century, between the years of wars and I and II world war, and I do not know whether you know this super channel on YT "Pathe1939" "…" there you can find various short original videos from that time ;) - especially I recommend you one of my favorite movie  "Kraków1920" -…

I had to add you to my watch--you photos of Kraków are awesome, and I can't wait to see how your drawing skills develop. I love your wolf Janosik-type character.

I've found some great IIRP-era films on YouTube, but I haven't seen 
 "Kraków1920" and will definitely check it out! Thanks for the recommendation :)
