Wilderness Training by wolfjedisamuel Wilderness Training by wolfjedisamuel
If you ever wondered where the term "Wildfires" originated from, look no further.




First, I'd like to congratulate Zoootpia on their win for Best Animated Feature in the Golden Globes last month. This is a sorta gift for them, with that said...

Two weeks later and I finally get this done, I didn't expect to take this long. This will be quick he said, a couple of days he said.
But I digress, here's a little love for the young Nicholas Wilde in his days as a Junior Ranger Scout member. Showing initiative, determination and utter lack of public, environmental & self safety precautions. Showing off his impeccable practical skills.  
I wanted to give the little guy some scouts experience, before he evidently leaves the group as pertained in the film.

So if you recall, Nick mentioned in his story about his mother buying him a new uniform... Now you know why. 
Can't blame him though. Can't keep a clever fox down. Just look at George Clooney 
(And before you say "The Fantastic Mr Fox". I was referring to "Oceans 13", cause you know when Reuben Tishkoff is conned and nearly dies, Clooney goes and cons the conner...Never mind.)
XD

I like the "what if Nick was accepted to the scouts" coming true through this drawing.

I agree, it would have been a pleasure to keep up. But I rather have it down and out of my gallery given the circumstances. At least you were able to see it.

I understand good friend and sometimes it has to be done. The very least it puts an end to any hassle and all can walk away without a fuss. Tis a shame though to see such a lovely piece go down.

Thank you, I'm glad to have seen it as well. Your art is always a wonderful pick me up and a joy to see.

:w00t: Thank you kindly, my dear friend. I'm especially glad you enjoyed this. I bet your rendition of Nick and the gang would be fantastic!

Also, without fact checking your estimates, I do believe that is an accurate calculation of Mr. Sean! :D
