Bunneh – Patreon Freebie

Have you ever created a character you were really happy with, but had no idea what to do with them? Well, that’s me and Bunneh. I used her once in a #Colour_Collective portrait then never again.

I gave her away this week on Patreon as PNG. She has a transparent background so can be plonked into any project. She’s free for Patrons to download and use in any project (including commercial), no credit required.

Want to use Bunneh for something yourself? Hit me up on Patreon for as little as $1 a month. Linky: patreon.com/littlefears

Thank you, everyone, for your continued comments, support, cups of tea and patronage. You’re all awesome.

Cheers to Kathy & Warren for the continued $10 Patronage. You can find me on Ko Fi, Patreon, Etsy, Amazon, Skillshare and Threadless.



A healthy dose of Aubergine this week for #Colour_Collective. On reflection, I should have made the face off-white. Textures on flat black or white are always rubbish.

No name for this lady. Also, no need to fill out the alphabet anymore. So I can name her whatever I want. Erm… That’s harder than having to pick a name to a specific letter, haha.

Thanks to Warren for the $10 Patronage.

We had teal for this weeks #Colour_Collective. I think that sounds like a nice name so let’s go with it. Teal, a new little fear. Works quite well on the cream body.

With special thanks

Weekly shout out to my $10 patron, Warren from IWrite. Without people like Warren, I wouldn’t be able to wake you all with my little fears and you’d probably cry a lot less in the morning than you already do.

Pigeon Shaman

Another nameless Fear. We’ll define her by her role for the time being. Visually she reminds me of a bedraggled pigeon. Her feathers separated.  The head-gear looks like a Celtic shamans headdress. She’s our lady for this weeks #Colour_Collective on Twatter.

Little Fears, Big Update; Umber

Well hello! Welcome to another Little Fears; big update! In this weeks post…

  1. Umber
  2. Hydra in Autumn
  3. Inktober
  4. Capricorn
  5. Patreon


The fine young lady as doodled for this weeks #Colour_Collective on Twatter. Pretty darned sexy if you ask me! I had in mind she was the Little Fears chief rat catcher, who isn’t very good at catching rats. That’s good because Yuffie would be peeved if Umber ate her friend Ratty!

Hydra in Autumn

Still very fears, but a slight departure in colour and style for this weeks new Threadless image. Hydra going for an Autumnal walk. Might make a good book cover for the next Little Fears book titled Seeking Hydra.

Hydra in Autumn is available from $12 from the Little Fears Threadless Store: https://littlefears.threadless.com/


A quicky for Inktober, just wanted to show how my characters start out compared to how they end. This is, of course, Umber from the top of the post.


Self Publishing Earnings on Amazon

I keep getting told on social media this week I should write a book! Well, I have, three of them in fact. They are all available in print and digital from Amazon.com, with January and Spiders being funny tales and Capricorn a collection of my horror stories.

Character Creation: Free Courses

Howdy gang! A very short Monday post this week. We’ve been talking on Twitter this weekend about character creation. Mostly because I’m farting them out left right and centre at the moment thanks to Inktober.

Point of the post, I came across two free courses this week on Skillshare. One from the WattPad team and one from Sarita Kolhatkar of Guild Wars 2. Both are 100% free. Sign up, skip anything that asks you to pay and take up the courses.

The Creative Writer’s Toolkit: Writing a Character Study

Starting with a blank slate is daunting, and in this class, Lindsey shares her favorite tool for overcoming writer’s block and starting your writing process: the character study.

This is a creative exercise that will help you develop characters that feel fresh and true to your writing style.
At the same time, this is also a practical exercise, giving you an informed starting place for the rest of your story, poem, or novel.
Once you have a character study, you can use it to write whatever fiction you want!

This class will inspire you to look at your everyday encounters and simple interactions as helpful starting points for developing a unique character. It’s perfect for everyone new to writing as well as writers looking to broaden their creative writing toolkit.

Character Design – Bring Your Imagination To Life!

Grew up watching Disney movies? Love drawing and storytelling? The objective of this class is teach you the various processes and Photoshop techniques on creating a character from start to finish, following a detailed process from thumbnail concepts to a completed digital illustration with lighting and color, perfect for your portfolio.

This class is great for anyone with a passion for drawing, painting and a love for Disney Pixar movies, and have often asked themselves, “how do I make my characters look like that?”
