Quaggan loves you!


I recently started playing the MMO game called Guild Wars 2 (GW2). It’s the first time I’ve ever played a MMO, and one of the first times I’ve ever played a computer game, aside from Minesweeper, Chip’s Challenge and Encarta Mind Maze way back in the ’90s, ha! GW2 has some very interesting creatures, my favourite being the Asura (little elfin critters) and the Quaggan (imagine a manatee, compacted into one-tenth the length). Quaggans are described by other in-game creatures as “stubborn little butterballs,” which is both amusing and apt. Judging by the sheer amount of Quaggan fan art out there, they’re widely favoured, probably because they’re cute and a very nice counterpoint to all the intentionally brusque, aggressive creatures in the game.

This is my rendition of a baby quaggan (a “calf”), cooing as they tend to do. Made with the Pen Tool in Photoshop again. I might resize the image a bit at some point and make it a desktop wallpaper. It’s a bit late for Valentine’s Day, but any day is a good day for a quaggan hug, no?
