Lune/Loon I guess!!
I tried painting gouache on some leftover matting board and the process made me kind of frustrated and angry for a while, haha. I don't have a lot of patience when I'm experimenting with media I'm not used to using.
(plus why would I use a medium the "correct" way, that'd be too easy right)

Am I the only one who looks at the moon (full) and sees a black vulture (or a bird of some sort)? the way the craters are together look like a bird of some sort to me

Ah man, gouache is such a pain to use, it seems simple but it is a trickster, that one! You seemed to have wrangled it into good use though. Love the texture, and loons are so awesome (their calls are pretty yet haunting!), reminds me of being up north in Canada, at a cottage on the lake :] I like the use of repetition of shapes too, distinctly loon-esque!

I actually really like this, even though you say it's a bit of a mess up. I'm becoming enamored with the idea of taking animals and making human counterparts. I might have to do some pieces of my own! :)

I dunno about your frustrations, because I love this new style you're using with the paints. Looks like you're experiencing the usual artist pain and it's helping you out in the end, lol.

Wow !
Love pattern and texture !
If you make something like that when you experiment something, you should do it more often !
Like ~pineapplepidecd92, I can't wait to see an animated version of your character !
The blu&green sky is so nice, magical and mysterious.
There is so little elements you could interpret in different ways, this is what I like :
Hat/cloud, hand/scarf, arm/wing.....
I don't like clouds but it's the only stuff !
