Give it a moment to load. Creature lottery winner from my Patreon. They wanted this super neat critter called a Leucrotta which is described as “the swiftest of all beasts, about the size of an ass, with a stag’s haunches, a lion’s neck, tail and breast, badger’s head, cloven hoof, mouth opening right back to the ears, and ridges of bone in place of rows of teeth—this animal is reported to imitate the voices of human beings.” I wanted to try and make it a somewhat believable critter and used it as an exercise in mammal anatomy.

Oh this is pretty old concept drawing which I did...though I finished him last month. I tried to draw with a little bit artistic style again... It was drawn from beginning till the end with colors. And I used many, many brushes
A little about him: His name is Tristan. He's an elf, hunting for demons. His weapons are staff and a sword. He's powerful, great fighter and he uses magic against the evil. He's always serious, hard to make him laugh. He have a scar over his lip and a tattoo on his lower lip-chin.Adobe Photoshop CC

For my Biodiversity of Earth class, we all did a presentation on a certain "Biodiversity hotspot", and my group got the Cerrado in Southern America. Now that our presentations are over, we all had to chose one animal from the region and make some sort of "visual representation". I chose this guy... and made it easy on myself by drawing him. This is our final, we are getting it done early so we will have one less thing to worry about when that time comes in a few weeks.

Red-legged Seriema or Crested Cariama (Cariama cristata)
75 to 90 cm (30 to 36 in) long and weighs about 1.5 kg, with a fairly long neck, tail, and legs. The plumage is medium brown above with black markings; pale brown on the head, neck, and breast; and white on the belly. Song has a quality described as "a cross between 'the serrated bark of a young dog and the clucking of turkeys'.

Human interference and habitat: the exact number is hard to tell as many will sing together, and calls echo, causing confusion. More often heard than seen, is vanishing the quickest in Uraguay, not part of the Cerrado.
