Description of Marko T. Rat

Ristin asked for a reference drawing of me. I think he's commissioning a drawing that includes me in it. I don't like the idea of "locking" my image down like that, but I have taken the liberty of writing a very brief description of my character, while trying to give the artist as much leeway as possible. This self-image has evolved over time, starting with Haal Serkonov's description which first germinated back in 1995 and has since had fed into it aspects of the drawing Aldi did for me (since coloured by me and used as my default LJ icon) and of Rattus, both of which in turn were influenced by me.

It's a hard life, being a rat. You're bound to get in the odd scrape.

"First of all, I'm a rat. Which means life... is hard."

That line comes to my head a lot these days in the morning when I have to drive to work in the cold...

For a moment, I thought your mood icon was some form of bondage. How wrong I was. n.n;;;

Nah, its more along the lines that my mind wants to make me see what it see's. I'm just the poor victim. XD

I have the same reluctance (and difficulty) coming up with descriptions of my ratty fursona for commissions etc. too. It's made more difficult by my constantly morphing mental picture of my character, and just how anthorpomorphic it is changes with my mood.
