Melly with Caplin Rous dressed as a horse
Caplin Rous’ birthday is coming up on July 10th. He would have been six this year. Melly still misses him every single day and I still struggle to live up to his legacy.

So we’re going to have a contest with prizes and everything to name my little co-pet. In case you don’t know what he is, he is a guinea pig, a close relative of capybaras.

How to draw a capybara
I saw a similar tutorial for drawing a cat on Facebook and decided to make one on how to draw a capybara. Of course, I’m not a very good artist so this is not such a great tutorial but I suppose it is better than nothing.
So here’s my new contest!
