the Fisherman and his son by oomizuao the Fisherman and his son by oomizuao
This is a sketch of a little father and son moment between Saunders and his dad.
Saunders is the little kid with the hat (which he borrowed from his dad).

Saunders' father, Muirios, was a sailor (or a fisherman, more accurately) and a very sweet and kind man. He had six kids, and thus didn't always have time to spend alone with just one of them. So Saunders really cherished the few moments he had all alone with his dad and hero whom he really looked up to.


More on Saunders and his story here in my recent journal entry about my anthro universe: [link]




I hope you like this little sketch :aww:
