I had so much fun with this one!!
Here’s my character, Cricket. What began as a small sketch of toying with her design expanded into a small project that got me familiar with the setting // world I want to place her into.
Cricket is a feline Fey Dragon, and assumed to be one of the last of her kind. Much to Cricket’s distaste, the ancient Faerie Dragon spirits always fuss over her and follow her quite often. She’s a wanderer, always searching for adventure and new lands. She’s a rebellious, curious, quite naive, and doesn’t often listen to anyone. She’s a mischief-maker by nature, and finds herself in heaps of trouble which she always ends up squirming her way out of without even knowing how exactly she managed it.
When night falls, the forest seems to come alive with a combination of luminescent glow caused by (one of the three) moons’ light when it hits the leaves, and minuscule Faerie Dragons that have a bad habit of following Cricket around. She hears them whispering and chirping, but can’t quite make out what they’re saying to her. They seem to be guiding her, but perhaps she just isn’t ready to hear the information they’re trying to deliver.

So I figured I’d do a redraw of something I drew about four years ago featuring my oldest and dearest characters, Hawkears (the girl in the back) and Leopardfire (the calico guy). Cell shading this time! That was an adventure, but definitely fun!!
Here’s the one from 2010:

"That was incredible." Will finally breathed. "I mean, I'm inspired, I-" The son of Apollo suddenly looked alert, pursing his lips together with widening eyes. "I think I feel a Haiku coming on, actually."
Nico groaned in dismay. "Oh, Will. Not now! Why do you always have to-"
"Yep, it's definitely a Haiku!" Will announced. He laughed and reached out and tried to gather Nico closer as the squirming pirate rolled onto his stomach and tried to cover his head with the closest pillow.
Nico's voice was muffled by the blankets. "I'm not listening."
Some lighthearted Solangelo loving after Nico returned to Camp after a long voyage at sea or something. When they're older, I like to imagine Nico becoming a free-spirited Pirate while Will continues to study his medical degree.
I drew this with intention of it being their 'first time', but it's honestly up to you for your interpretation. ^^
