Fabulous work by other artists on Deviantart!


The Zooly challenge continues
With a weekly animal to draw. August 13-20 is a loon.
Or try to draw... I needed to study online photos as reference. I have no idea what a loon looks like.
  Loons are cool.This is done with colored pencils and ink on toned paper, with some photoshop coloring and tweaking.
Snerl in clay
One of the many things I've never finished! This is "Snerl" the Windstone Logo griffin, in clay. He has paws instead of eagle feet in front. Windstone logo by Reptangle
Ratty Peacock
 Last Zooly art challenge! Peacocks are really time consuming subjects to draw perfectly. That's ok, because sometimes they don't look so perfect, like this  scribbled one. During molting season we would collect huge bunches of tail feathers from the dozen or so feral peacocks that lived in around our house in California. It was loud.
This was the view out of our kitchen window: Peacocks by Reptangle I did feed them, so it was all my fault
Is the Zooly July 30 challenge. I drew a female elephant seal with pencil on cream colored paper, and added a bit of color with photoshop. egg
Moth Dog
Oops, I was trying to post this in "stash".  This is just a quick, messy sketch idea. Sphinx moths have faces that look mammalian, like a rabbit or something so I drew a creature.


Reptangle's Profile Picture
Melody Pena
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
I am a sculptor. I am a sculptor that draws comics.
For the past 35 years I've been busting my knuckles carving dragons, owls, wolves, cats, griffins and other creatures for Windstone Editions. My pieces have been sold in gift stores all over the world for more than 30 years now!
I am also a perpetual art student. There is still so much I need to learn! I love learning about animals and anatomy. I'm fascinated by every aspect of biology, zoology, and just about every other field of science... most of which is way over my head.
Finishing my comic series is the core passion that fills the bucket of my bucket list
One book of mine, "The Veligent" has been completed. I have been diligently working on the second book in the series, "Rueday", in the evenings, weekends and every other minute of time I can scrape loose:…

Current Residence: on a farm in Oregon
Favourite genre of music: Anything but Frank Sinatra and "jazzed up" Christmas carols
Favourite photographer: Griffin Alberti
Favourite style of art: graphic novels, Golden age illustration, Pre-Raphaelite, Da-da, modern and conceptual
Operating System:minimally invasive.

Shell of choice: Nautilus, no, wait. everybody makes this joke..
Wallpaper of choice: Ones with koi
Skin of choice: Arctic fox
Favourite cartoon character: Zonker Harris, Pfirsich Rommel, Jaeger Ayers, Deacon mushrat
Personal Quote: Poor taste need not be poor quality.
 Do you support Partreons? Do you have a Patreon page yourself?  
 I was thinking of starting one, not to get money so much as to have an opt-in private place to post working art ideas, musings from my muse, and my crappier art that doesn't see the light of day ... my muse can explain why it is so messy.
.Musings by ReptangleI'd probably use any funds to buy real art supplies (like copic markers that I am too cheap to buy for myself) and supporting other patreons. 

  • Listening to: Ears ringing
  • Reading: "My Favorite thing is Monsters"
  • Watching: old Sherlock Holmes tv shows from 1954
  • Drinking: Teeeee
