I started out trying to draw a huge orc lady, but then she sort of turned out as a cow. Then I couldn't help it and I got an idea for an AU, which I'm probably going to theme a few more characters here on.

Basically, it's an anthro world, except all the different species don't exactly coexist happily. There are different social levels- pet animals are the higher classes with dogs, mustelids and especially cats on top. Mostly working animals come next like horses and pigeons as ordinary people, and finally there are livestock like cows, chickens and pigs who are still eaten etc. (There are also wild animals, but these are generally looked down on and left alone) Bessie is one of the beef cattle who managed to escape and is now the leader of some sort of resistance group. These escaped animals all adopt a new name based on their species (Like Daisy, Henrietta, Billy and so forth) So they can't be easily traced, sort of like how 'John Smith' is a generic human name.

That is a really interesting concept for an AU. The idea that they are real sentient people and still raised to be eaten is a pretty scary twist on slavery. Oh good design by the way.

Thanks. I guess it came around as a result of my course. A lot of it has to do with animal welfare and it really makes you think.

Thanks! Yeah, she can be patient when the situation calls or it, but certainly doesn't take any nonsense.

As a fan of anthro worlds, I gotta say this is quite an interesting idea for a world like that...
