Another design from my creature design class, a ride-able mountain goat with six legs.

I love this piece of work and could see the hexagoat as the default riding-beast on a world with slightly greater gravity and a sub-arctic climate. Though I have to admit that I have not worked out what kinds of gaits this beast would have.

I love the skeleton and muscle ones.
although the arched neck and long nasal bone kind of make it look a little like a horse.
but it's still awesome.

SOCOOOOL. and holy crap you're good with shaggy fur. I remember you posted a tutorial once and at a certain point it became 'now draw the owl' to me. but I hope on some level I picked up some of it.
Love that muscle hump.
also it kinda justifies Sleipnir as just a more elaborate version of a different ungulate, dunnit?

Ant-goat hybrid :D
Or a Sleipner-goat with only six legs

Anyways, it's beautiful

I like how for the sketches you included a skeletal and muscular drawing. Also your painting skills are exceptional, very masterfully done :D

Looks like a smooth ride! Maybe this creature will exist in years to come...then we wouldn't need buses or taxis anymore. After all, I think this is way cooler. :D
