A possum! Hello, there. I like possums.
About the art, I mostly just do small doodles. Sometimes in pencil or pastel, but I've started playing with a tablet and having fun with that. Oil pastels are pretty sketchy, but you can get some detail if you're careful and do a lot of touching up. The biggest thing is to just have fun with whatever you're doing so you don't get burned out.
We do have a comic thread in the art section, by the way. I haven't contributed much there lately (no time) but it's a good place to get random silly ideas. And since you asked, considering you have a possum and snow leopard you should draw the possum riding the kitty.
