My Billy Bumbler by Carolyne My Billy Bumbler by Carolyne
This is my interpretation of a Billy-Bumbler. Kinda what I visioned when reading Stephen King's Dark Tower (c).

It's not Oy (from the book), it's kinda like my own one. He's ment to have a long slender body, but it's kinda hard to tell, as he's scrunched up, washing his back. His tail is coiled up tightly againsed him also. He's chubby for a Billy-Bumbler, guess I fed him too much. ^_^;

Done in water colour and metalic pencils.

Love it <3 I have 3 cats and a snake...but I want an Oy! (Except, I thought he has silky brown fur- at least that's the image I get- but I keep seeing everyone elses' interpretations with stripes...LOL)

Thank you! :)
I have four cats myself, always wished I could get a pet snake too! I'd be too afraid to give them live food if they needed it though! lol
It's weird you say that about the fur actually, because when I fist pictured Billy Bumblers I saw them with just brown fur too!

Thank you. I tried to base the look upon what I remember being described, but I had read the book a year or so before so I only remember certain animals being mention in it's "look". I shall research on your suspicions now, thanks for telling me.

Well I had a quick look and I couldn't find anything, but if you have any other info then I'll look again, otherwise I can't find anything. Strange. I still don't see why someone would steal someone else's artwork ideas... They must be seriously lame and a bad artist (especially if they have to copy from me! lol), still, very strange to me! :S

Yeah, this is pretty much how I imagined him as well, only maybe with bigger eyeballs, almost like a tarsier but not quite as creepy. Otherwise, spot on.

Thank you! I tried to recall the description of Billy-bumblers from the book, but I tried to add my own style too. :)
