Forespoken, the Oracle Bone. Tortoise Man and Rabbit Man.

I worked on the forest background, and started on my Rabbit Man. Rabbit Man has an anthropomorphic tortoise companion a la Tortoise and the Hare. I started thinking about oracle bones- the practice of divination by turtle shell (without the turtle in it) wherein heat is applied to the shell and the cracks that appear are "read", and sometimes the results are written on the shell. I decided that is what my Rabbit Man is doing, he is practicing plastromancy, and Tortoise Man is helping him. He's holding the ink. Rabbit Man looks a little sad, maybe because he just learned that "slow and steady wins the race".
