Specie revamp: Araraucas by Shegoran Specie revamp: Araraucas by Shegoran
Araraucas specie reference by Shegoran

I recently decided to keep only a few of my specie , (to have the time to develop them more) and the Araraucas are one of them.
I made this specie reference two years ago and today I see sooo much problems in the anatomy!
First: The tail. How can such a big raptor have balance with a thin
light feather tail? XD
Then the crest:
while bird watching, I noticed that I had not drawn properly either.
I am also playing more with feather shape. When I see birds like turkey rooster or chicken, they have so much volume!
I also like the rooster Araraucas I drew but actually I don't even realy know what's the red weird part of the rooster... Cartilage?

About the owners of Araraucas:
-You are alowed to keep it with the old look or revamp it.
- If you want to revamp it, please wait until I'm done with the new reference sheet.

J'pense que c'est pas du cartilage mais de la peau?
Ahhhhhh en tout qu'est ce que j'ai tes sketch! La vache, il sont si beau et propre et magnifique et ohhhhh ♥

Alors, qui t'as décidé de jeté comme espèces?
J'ai toujours adoré les Ara en tout cas, et une grosse queue comme ça, ça à plus de sens!

Je les trouve bien plus élégants comme ca :D Y'a plus de structure, un meilleur équilibre

Les nakadas ne vont pas énormément changer :D Juste que je vais être plus claire au niveau de certaine feature inspirée des poissons c:

Le mien est inspiré d'une grenouille alors ça devrait pas poser problème \o/ Il sont vachement stylé comme ça, j'aime trop le cou tout fluffy et c'est vrai que la queue plus volumineuse équilibre bien la bêbête !

ahahaha, good that your species eats bees! BE GONE! >:U
(They should eat all of the house centipedes in the world too--then everyone can sleep a lot easier. XD)

so are you not going to reopen them? they'll be a closed species after you finish revamping them?
Reply
:iconshegoran:
Shegoran Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Not sure about that c:
I saw this recurrent thing: when you make a specie closed, people care more about it, when it's open it's more like "OH THIS SPECIE IS AWESOME I MUSS HAVE ONE!!... Wait it's and open specie... Huuu who cares?"

XD

curious though, are you going to get rid of the Macaghedons? I always liked those and was curious what might be happening to them-
