h'okay! finished! yaaaaay!!
ok this may not be super AWESOME, but I reallllly did this contest in order to... ATTEMPT to push my capabilities (not by much, but it helps me find what is my 'me' style?)
ANYWAY... umm.... wasn't sure on a name, so to keep w/ a concept of how science goes too far and how they treat their experiments as 'study' vs a living being, I've decided to keep w/ it's number (my bday, lol....)
what's funny is, this ENTIRE piece all started w/ my fascination for the beauty of the feathers in place of hair (something like a cockatoo?)
next thing you know she has a tail (that I SHOULD'VE focused more like a rattle snake now that I think about it but somehow ended up w/ a scorpion one?), then spikes down the back (alligator) for protection, claws to latch onto things or dig into her prey/enemies, cat eyes for night vision and ears like a bat..
the ONLY thing I wish I had found a solution on time, was to work out her chest/stomach area.. I wanted it to be covered in scales (tough front exterior), but oh well
honestly this was a spontaneous piece I sketched in one day and fiddled around for a month!
kept the needle concept simple I guess... yep,
maybe for fun I can push my image manipulation practice too w/ my baby here!
