Boneclaw Mother by ursulav Boneclaw Mother by ursulav
This is the cover for Chapter Seven of my increasingly lengthy webcomic, "Digger." Our wombat heroine had just encountered the elder of a tribe of hyena-like creatures, a hooded figure called Boneclaw Mother, and I liked her enough that I decided to give her the cover illustration.

"Digger" has subscription only archives, but there's several hundred pages free at the moment, plus the current page is always free on Tuesday and Thursday. [link]

Masks are probably the biggest recurring motif in "Digger"--half the characters are veiled or hooded or masked, it shows up in the myths people tell, and even the big stone heads scattered at random through the landscape are based on Balinese Barong masks. Possibly I'm a little obsessed.

Anyway, kind've a Susan Seddon Boulet influence on this one. Prints are available, for $10 and $20 respectively--send a note or visit [link] for details.

One thing I've always wondered about Boneclaw Mother...was she always blind or was it an unfortunate hunting accident?

And for that matter, what was her nomme de plumme when she wasn't Boneclaw ' Mother' ? Was she just ' Boneclaw?'

I can't express how beautiful Digger is. All I can say is that it made me cry, and I don't cry at anything! Thank you so much for sharing your story with us.

I've recently discovered the comic, and I like it. It's especially refreshing to find hyenas portrayed in something other than the 'dumb vicious scavenger' role. A beautiful piece, although what else could be expected from such a great author and artist?

I think she was probably one of my favorite characters in Digger.

Woo, Boneclaw Mother! She has become a recurring character in one of our D&D games-- although in my DM's version, she's a gnoll. Still made of awesome, though. :D
