Self Ref: Witticaster by Mewitti Self Ref: Witticaster by Mewitti
This is the critter I use to represent myself online. I made it a long time ago, abandoned it with this account, then remembered how much I loved it when I finally returned six years later. I think I can finally get my mind off it now that I've updated + written down the design. Gotta make a few more of these for my other characters someday. 

Not depicted: she has mouse teeth. Her tail is flat and the same width all the way down, like a ribbon.

Check out how I used to draw myself back in 2006!

Thank you Paperiapina for advice on making better wing things. <3

Feel free to make characters inspired by the idea of mouselike winged creatures. However, please be aware that Witticaster is an extremely personal creature, designed to represent myself and myself only, filled with symbolism and personal significance. If you make your own Witti-inspired character, please be considerate enough to innovate and make your design unique. Please do not directly copy the colors/markings (that's lazy), say your character is a 'Witticaster' (your character is not me), or say your character is part of a 'Witti species' (that's just weird)

I really like this cutie! Would it be okay to make a larger species based off this character in terms of like the wing/hand combo?? I would change the head and tail designs. :3

The idea of microraptor-like arms is definitely not copyright to me! Do whatever you feel like.

No they're not. Witticaster is my name. There is no species name since I designed this as a unique creature that represents me.

THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN VERY USEFUL WHEN I DREW YOUR BIRTHDAY PICTURE.

I SHOULD HAVE CHECKED HERE.

I AM STUPID THIS IS SO PRETTY I LOVE HER STRIPES AND THE COLORS THAT YOU CHOSE AND HER MARKINGS ARE VERY PRETTY. AND I LOVE HER EARS - ESPECIALLY THE WAY THEY CURVE INWARD.

ALSO I HATE AND LOVE DRAWING HER FEET I AM SORRY.

This is amazing. Out of curiosity, is it a mammal, or bird? I know it has wings, and feathers, but the whiskers/external ears throw me.

Mewitti Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's a mix! It has a few bird-specific anatomical characteristics (inside and out) but overall it's most similar to mammals such as mice.

Soo... you're okay if we make one of these for ourselves, so long as it has original markings and colors that differ from yours? Cause I would love to make one. It's so cute. I'm melting from the cute. Ahhhhhhhh!

:iconmewitti:
Mewitti Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, basically. Though I mean, considering the versatility of birds/cats/mice it wouldn't be too hard to make it look pretty wildly different! I'm happy you like her!
