I’m really short on time right now, but I just had to share some of my digital painting class homework with you. Part of this week’s assignment was to sketch five fantasy creatures that are plausible for their environment. While I still can’t draw very well, my sense of humor seems to be as twisted as ever. So, may I introduce you to a few new creatures you might not have heard of?
(I am particularly fond of the saber-toothed jackalope and the sonic salamander, though the armored jelly-pus has its moments, too.)
I’m pleased to say that, with much hard work and after braving many hazards, I managed to obtain a sonic salamander! Here is my first specimen:
Alas, the cats found and killed the first one, but I am certain that there are others lurking in the house. Perhaps I can find a few in that pound and a half of polymer clay that mysteriously appeared on my doorstep a few days ago…
And now, back to my homework! I need to pick one of the animals and make three detailed sketches of it (one of those sketches will eventually turn into the actual painting). I’ll probably do the sonic salamander, since I have a (somewhat-mangled, but probably fixable) model of one already.
Of course, the sketches are due tomorrow afternoon…so I better get cracking! You’ll have to wait for the next blog post, which (if I have time) will include a video of Tigress “under the influence”…yes, more catnip!
