Took some time to finish it but I'm really proud of the final effect. I didn't have time to ' produce' any more works for this competition, so this is the only entry I'm submitting. Hope you like it. Created using my poor old mouse (which made the whole task pretty challenging). Fully digital work, painted in PhotoPaint - from the first dot till the last line.
Try to view it not at 100% of size - it'll look better and you'll feel the atmosphere of the whole scene.
At least it's something of a return to my normal style after the last two.
I seem to be getting an unholy amount of inspiration for this contest. :\ I'm sorry if it's getting annoying. This is probably going to be my last entry, but I can't say for sure. But really, I couldn't enter this contest without entering my favorite animal. (yay giraffes~) I dunno if this is strictly allowed, since it involves a plant, but whatever. :V I do what I want.
Anyway, this is a Girybird Trap, or a Girybird. It's a giraffe, a venus flytrap, and just enough lyrebird to get the beak and the vocal ability. Girybirds take the carnivorous trait from venus flytraps, and sit for hours on end in the sun. They release a rotting sort of smell, supplemented by the appearance of raw meat that their backs have, and mimic the cries of dying animals to attract carrion eaters- which they eat in turn via some sort of absorbtion. Girybirds are known to pick over the remains and eat any unabsorbed flesh. I suppose they have two sets of ribs- one normal kind, and one set to support the flytrap bits.
They still have the long black tongue that giraffes do, and neck when fighting.
