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!

An African Forest Elephant-Australian Terrier-Red Panda 07-30-14

Finally! The elusive red panda made its appearance. I didn’t get to use much of it but I held on to that fluffy tail. I think this one is one of the cutest to date. It’s like some cute creature that is only found on the other side of the world, like a Kuala.

So … What do you get when you cross an African Forest Elephant, Australian Terrier, and Red Panda?

07-23-14 Numbat-Elephant-Ant

A Numbat-Elephant-Ant 07-23-14

I really wanted to see elephant legs that were jointed like ant legs in this one. It’s pretty weird and I’m not so sure this fellow would survive long in nature. I liked how the numbat turned out though. It was cool to see something as big as an elephant and another as small as an ant appear in the same prompt too.

So … What do you get when you cross a Numbat, Elephant, and Ant?

An Aye Aye-Anteater-Flamingo 07-22-14

I couldn’t believe it – the flamingo, an embodiment of grace and beauty… and then the Aye Aye. I loved it. The figure developed right away and it’s always fun to look at. This is another example of taking a characteristic (the flamingo’s beak) and merging it with another (the anteater’s snout). This is one of my favorites.

So … What do you get when you cross an Aye Aye, Anteater, and Flamingo?

A Lion Fish-Frilled Lizard-Pool Frog 07-21-14

This one got complicated. The lion fish and frilled lizard were covered with flare and I wanted all of it – which probably wasn’t the best way to take care of it. Next time I hope to capture the running characteristic of the frilled lizard. It should make for a great sketch.

So … What do you get when you cross a Lion Fish, Frilled Lizard, and Pool Frog?

A Sparrow-Sea Dragon-Orangutan 07-09-14

This was a really fun one and one of my favorites. Getting to play with the sea dragon features brought new shapes that I haven’t had a chance to use before. I wish I could have used more of the orangutan but it was not meant to be… next time.

So … What do you get when you cross a Sparrow, Sea Dragon, and Orangutan?

No prob. Came across your RE contest entry and liked your other deviations like the "Bob and Friends" Inner demons maybe? Cool stuff.
