Welkin Weasels W.I.P. by ZekiWolf Welkin Weasels W.I.P. by ZekiWolf
Fweehh? Zeki drew something that isn't just a portrait? WHAT DAY IS IT?!?

Here we have, going clockwise from the top, Scirf, Mawk, Sylver, Bryony, and Miniver. I shall confess to using photos of ferrets as reference for the poses.

You have no idea how many times I erased and re-drew Miniver. D: And... Mawk's stupid front legs. All of their front legs. All of their cursed front legs.

This is still a work in progress...obviously. XD I intend to colour it...eventually? Possibly tomorrow? Perhaps next month? Who knows. Aside from some obvious flaws in (Miniver's) facial anatomy, I also need to add belts/accessories to the others. The idea of Sylver wearing a bird's skull on a necklace came from the cover of Thunder Oak.

Scirf is all, 'Really Zeki? Bitch PLEASE. You've uploaded so much Welkin art this week that everyone already KNOWS we belong to Garry Kilworth, so don't waste our time with these silly copyright notices.'

Come on now, Scirf. Come. On.

Bryony looks really cute. And Miniver's my favourite character I think!

XD Yeah, it definitely needs some tweaking. I'm going to redraw her completely.

Sorry, let me correct myself. I mean to say that i always pictured Miniver to be no bigger than a squirrel

I´m reading the trilogy at the moment (:)...started with the third book first by mistake, because I found it at the bookstore at the railroad station attracted by the wonderfull cover design by John Howe and found the summary very interesting)...

Anyhow, the weasel characters in the book are absolutely adorable and I really like it, how you draw them.
Awsome job!

Sure I like the books. But in german we have just the first three translated. Hope the rest comes soon...or I have to read them in english.
Nice homepage but still a bit empty. Seems as if the weasels don´t have so much fans so far...how sad.

When I saw your drawings I thought by myself, that this would be pretty character designs for a cartoon tv show or movie.
...a movie or tv show of the books would be very cool.

Just wondering, but does Bryony ever get into a relationship? She looks pretty. She's not a she-pimp, is she?

ZekiWolf Featured By Owner May 21, 2009
nah, she's got a subtle crush on Sylver, and vice versa.

Evidently the thing between the original Sylver and Bryony didn't work out, though, or they wouldn't have had separate descendants. My personal theory is that Monty and the second Bryony are actually their reincarnations as well as their descendants, and are finally fixing the mistakes they made with each other the first time.

And Maudlin and Scruff are the reincarnations of Mawk and Scirf and are doing the same thing XD XD XD

Yeah, I kind of wondered why they had separate ancestors. XD Maybe there have just been so many generations that they've split ways. <-< >->

They could have just split up after a bit. Things happen that way a lot. (Sucks in real life but it's a gift to the shippers - means you don't necessarily have to pick and choose.)

yeeeah...but then who DID they end up with? XD Maybe Sylver married Alysoun. I dunno who that leaves for Bryony. XD

Chelonianmobile Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Nothing says they necessarily married within the gang. They're not the only weasels in the world ^_^

I'm still of the opinion that Mawk ended up with Miniver. That explains why the chapter-heading pictures show Maudlin as being so very short.

Reminds me, I gotta write more fic about 'em some time. Not sure if the fandom's ready for slashfic yet, though. Eh, Wind in the Willows has pretty much nothing else, from what I've seen ...

Aw, I know, but I like the idea of them ending up with their friends. XD

XD MawkxMiniver would be cute.


Maaan I need to work on WelkinOnline this winter. 8| It's been the last thing on my mind since summer hit.

Not scars, just patches of fur missing, but yeah. He's really dirty and flea-ridden.

Awww! I imagine this is how they looked when meeting Alice and Tom and the other kids for the first time; "Remember what I told you, gang; look up at their faces and LOOK CUTE!"

Well, Mr K did say ages ago on his site that he planned at some point to write another book or three set in the future with space weasels. Which would rock.

(If he does and Maudlin and Scruff have descendants, I will CRY. Or at least just decide quietly that said descendants are actually their siblings' and cousins' descendants and they actually lived happily ever after together. Aw.)
