Watchers

Friends

I started a new sketch game called "Chimera Safari" [patent pending;] a few years ago. I randomly pull three different animals from a list and then give myself 15 minutes to mash them all together however I like. The first minute is spent studying images of the creatures and the rest is studying. They started out rough and messy but over time the sketches were more refined.

I'll be posting the series over the next few weeks. Eventually I think I'll paint a few but that's for another time!

04-19-14 Barb-Tiger Shark-Tuatara

A Barb-Tiger Shark-Tuatara 04-19-14

I only used a fraction of my 10 minutes for this one. I was more interested in the pushing the wily silhouette than focusing on the features themselves. This is the last generalized creature I sketched. From this point on my sketches became far more attuned to the actual features.

So … What do you get when you cross a Barb, Tiger Shark, and Tuatara?


(please forgive all the signature junk at the bottom. I flatten the images after completion so I can't fake any changes ... now I can't change them.)

04-18-14 Gentoo Penguin-Bernese Mtn Dog-Galapagos

A Gentoo Penguin-Bernese Mountain Dog-Galapagos Penguin 04-18-14

A randomizer of near 500 creatures and I get two penguins. Amazing… but not undoable. One penguin has two legs, two penguins have four legs, dog has four legs and a smile – done. And this is probably one of the happiest creatures to date.


This sketch features a step further in studying the actual face of the creature as well as a bit more environment than we’ve seen before.


So …

04-15-14 Pointer-Sea Monkey-Siberian Tiger

A Pointer-Sea Monkey-Siberian Tiger 04-15-14

Cross a sea monkey with something? As weird as the idea was at first, the sketch came out right away. The first thing I generally start with is the line of action and I was happy to see that the very first line I laid down is still visible – from the back of the neck, down the spine, and all the way to the tip of the tail. I also really wanted to take opportunity to use the pointing part of this creature but not in a violent way.

A Water Spaniel-Purple Emperor-Ferret 04-14-14

This sketch marked a turning point in this exercise. I believe it was the first time I really tried to capture the specific face of the creature. Previous sketches feature a lizard face but not a “Tuatara’s” face. Right when I saw the ferret pop up in the randimizer I knew I wanted a curvy standing ferret sketch.

 

So … What do you get when you cross a Water Spaniel, Purple Emperor, and Ferret?

A Woolly Mammoth-Pied Tamarin-Tuatara 04-13-14

I was not familiar with the Pied Tamarin or Tuatara before this sketch. I can’t wait to get a chance to use the Tamarin’s features again.

 

So … What do you get when you cross a Woolly Mammoth, Pied Tamarin, Tuatara?
