I'VE HAD THIS CHARACTER since about 2007 and I've had him for as long as I had Allen and Alex. He was created as just a wolf character but turned human around the time allen and alex did and they all ended up being part of the same story line. I decided I would draw some of my secondary and side characters to my story ideas, so I tackled Rip (pronounced like the verb, i.e. 'he ripped it open', Not R.i.p.) When making his fursuit design I decided it would be his old wolf design I had him as. Both Cheesy and meaningful at least. He's best friends with Allen, Alex and Shaun and all together they like to play music and he's a drummer and does some back vocals when needed. He's also an avid fursuitter and hangs out on the internet all day gocking at furry art and buying it cause that's just how he likes to spend his time.
Rip is SUPER adventurous and gutsy, he'll try anything without hesitation just to get the experience of it. He doesn't have to like it in the end, but at least he tried it right? He's painfully openminded but fairly dumb, at least he is always in an excited happy mood all the time!
IF you recognize this character at all I'll be impressed with how long you've known me.
Rip, art (c) me~!
