Rat Taijitu by dakazi Rat Taijitu by dakazi
2 rats forming the classic 'yin and yang' symbol. I am aware that this has been done dozens of times by dozens of artists; I just wanted to try my hand at it.

Acrylic paint, marker and colored pencil on heavy cardboard. This originally had a solid background but I cut the border unevenly and decided to cut out the figures instead.

This is adorable.  I love how you've made the ears and the great big wonderful feet.  You have a wonderful talent.  I'm sorry I stole this image for me Facebook profile without asking.  I found it floating around under "rats" with no attribution.  May I have your permission to use it?

I love the poses and how you did the fur, great job! :love:
The only thing that is lacking here are the whiskers and maybe the second ear of the black rat. 
I like the idea of the spots around their eyes too, it makes the picture even more interesting! 
And the tails are in perfect positions too! :heart:

Whiskers probably would've helped a lot.  That's something I need to work on... I usually add the whiskers last, and always fear screwing up or making them look awkward.

Maybe you could try drawing them with a needle instead of a crayon or pencil? They would be thinner, so they should look better and they shouldn't be as visible, so you wouldn't have to worry as much about them looking bad. :)

Good idea, I'll have to give that a shot sometime.  When I'm using colored pencil I usually layer it on pretty thick, so I think they'd actually show up pretty well.
