Meet Rudy, my mate's sona. He's, as you can see, a spotted hyena. I've drawn him before, but we changed it up a tad by creating a neat lil gradient in the mane. We wanted to think of something either fiery or space-y. We went for space-y cause an astral hyena just sounds awesome and unique. The main inspiration is this --> https://imgur.com/a/UfW6jfP . I know that I could have gone a bit more with it, but we had to take into consideration that his design had to be doable for a fursuit maker.
My mate, Rudy DenDragen, needed a needed a reference sheet in a hurry because he wanted to apply to a fursuit maker. It seems like he got some attention from them, so there's that.
