And I learned something when I used Google to double check my spelling (because I am a poor speller). The scientific name for Hippo's is Hippopotamus amphibius and they inhabit rivers, lakes, swamps and wallos. I thought the waterfall / river background would work well enough.
This is another one of my silly submissions that may leave a lot of people going "what on earth posessed her to do this?"
Well honestly, I sometimes just dig through my folders and go "Hmm what haven't I used yet, and what would be interesting?"
This time it was "Ohh I know a huge animal with tiny wings!!"
Thus the Hippo Heaven, or my origional thought Hippo Paradise was born!
The Hippo is from DAZ
The background and plants are from DAZ
The wings are a RDNA freebie
This is another one without a lot of postwork, only a little patch of skin where the wing was showing through and a tweak of the colors to up the intensity.
Everything is thrown together for (hopefully) your enjoyment. What can I say, my sense of humor has an odd streak if the previous pictures of the chicken eggs in a Western or a hamster with huge angel wings was not proof enough. I'm thinking I'll do something more stereotypical Poser art next, but something I personally haven't done yet. Maybe a pin-up or a faerie I'm not sure.
