Mole- head by Weirda208 Mole- head by Weirda208
I was thinking for so long "Should I...did this? submitt here this?"

But sincerely, thinking about this great reference photos:

and that I used this to draw realistic version of Pokemon(Excadrill, [link]), I decided to submitt this here if someone would like to have a help in mole's anatomy.

I...I hate my cat!
I can forgive many lizards, mouses and even one common shrew, but two things I won't forgive:

A mouse with bowels out and this little mole.

Maybe it's boring for you, maybe not, but I would like to say some things that happened that day(14.07.2011)

I finished my Excadrill sketchs(something about 15, I decided to take a challenge by myself) and... I was still discontented, because refering to books and internet I was still has many problems.
But...I started making an outline. Then I heard rustling grass behind window. It was a cat, also with mine.
I screamed something to scare a cat.
Few minutes later; another rustling grass.
I thought: "great, this black cat again" and I looked through a window.
Nothing. My cat was "taking death fun" with something small and black...
I know how brutal method of killing cat has.
But when I run, it was too late.
This mole was death...
First time when I saw a real mole, in time when I needed a help for this animal anatomy...
I brought my brother's aparat and I started tooking photos.
For a reference.
For little tribute this great underground creatures.

You can surely use these photos as a help for mole's anatomy.

My miniature dachshund did the same thing! Except it was a gopher he killed... (Something must have been wrong with it, because it wasn't underground; it was walking on the sidewalk. It looked like it had been in a fight with another gopher). Too bad this little guy was at the wrong place at the wrong time.
