Red by ursulav Red by ursulav
To forestall the inevitable, yes, this WOULD be a good series! And it's set up to allow that! And given how I usually work, I'll do Orange next week, Yellow two years from now, and be finishing Violet up on my deathbed.

Meanwhile, for those who are curious, there are eleven animals in this picture: Red Panda, Rhode Island Red Rooster, European Red Squirrel, Northern Cardinal, Red Milk-Snake, Red-Crested Cardinal, Ladybug, Scarlet Tanager, Strawberry Poison Frog, Tomato Frog and Red Ramshorn Snail. I am particularly pleased with the rooster’s expression. Guess he’s not much of a hugger.

The only problem with such a series is that the only ones with mammals will be Red, Orange, and Yellow, unless I fudge it really hard and put in a blauubuck. (A blue whale might make scale problematic…) Even the mossy sloths aren’t THAT mossy. Oh well…

I adore red pandas! I did an entire project all about them back in high school.
Had pictures from the zoo and everything.
High light of my life.
Anyway, this is perfectly adorable and the colors for them all are great.

I want a red panda hug....

Well, for colorful mammals, there's always Manic Panic. :D Or cyanotic cold critters. Wait!! Polar Bear fur isn't white so much as colorless, and in captivity they've been known to take on algae colors, or so I've read somewhere....

I'm on board with others for the Mandril for blue. It may be partial, but it's real! There are blue dolphins, too. As for green, go with the sloth. The Allen's Swamp Monkey also has some yellowish/green fur.

At least mammals would have Brown, Gray, White, and Black in the bag. =p

Unless I'm mistaken, there's a number of dolphins and porpoises that might come in bluish shades. Purple squirrels really do exist. I don't know about greens, though; you might have to settle with the mossy sloths.

I'd suggest putting the whale ,i>wayyyy</i> down the back; that'll shrink it down and solve your ration problem :)

Perhaps a scene at the beach?

Sloths! Sloths have fungus that grows in their fur turning it a mossy greenish color.

This is so cute. It's got so much depth, even though everything is the same color.

I always thought tapirs were kind of blueish. Then there's that thing among dog-fanciers, where grey is called "blue". And Russian Blue cats are...blue-ish. Kinda.
