Ægir just waking up with a smiling star on his head :heart:
I didn't place the star here by the way, it was in the box and fell on his head when he was sleeping in there ^^

Ægir, American blue self dumbo rat, born january 2010

He is very cuddly little boy who adores sleeping on my knees or in my sweater (he seems to have a sweater-sleep fetish :slow: )
He's a doll ! :heart:
He comes from an unwanted litter, I couldn't resist his cuteness and adopted him. My boyfriend named him Ægir after a Giant from the Norse mythology.


Canon EOS 350D

Blue gift wrapping paper
An ugly brown mail cardbox I covered with printed striped paper (stripes pattern created in photoshop)
Yellow stars drawn in Photoshop then printed and stuck on the blue giftwrapping paper
Blue cloth
Purple and orange paper
Light blue gift wrapping paper pieces I curled with scissors

i'll first say this... A very pretty photo! I love the ratties face and the setting ah! not one blurry spot either! The coloring and tinting is great also! You captured this rat at the perfect moment too! I have to say i'd never be able to do something like this! Over all this is a very great photo! though i have seen a few other photos by differnt people much like this! Though i love it!THis has a very good vision and impact to me. Your Technique is also awesome! this picture goes over the top! please never quit taking picture of your stuning pets! Keep up the good work!

You look so close your rats. Me and my boyfriend recently got two new ones, and one of them is a bit tough to love. She tries to run away a lot (unlike our others) and I was wondering how I could get closer to her ?

J'ai pas tout compris (encore un peu de mal avec l'anglais ^^"), l'étoile était vraiment sur sa tête? oO
Si c'est le cas, tu as vraiment des crèmes, l'étoile aurait déjà été dépiautée avant que j'ai le temps de prendre une photo ici XD
