World Tapir Day by shoomlah World Tapir Day by shoomlah
Okay, so I knew World Tapir Day was coming up, but this is more of a complete coincidence- I decided I needed some more stuff for the big portfolio review this past week, and I love tapirs, so... Tapirs it is. The temptation to now outline some tapir epic is tempting.

Starstruck / Starry Eyed The design of those tapirs is awesome! Nice job. They look like background animals for a Disney movie (especially one from the Disney Renaissance Era during the events of 1989-1999).

Tapirs are one of the most underrated animals, along with okapis, pangolins, secretary birds, cassowaries, and tuataras.

I wish they would appear in movies more often.

My top 3 favorite animals in the world are:

1. Wolves

2. Rhinos

3. Tapirs

Don't get me wrong, I love them all the same. :) did you know that rhinos and tapirs are related?

YES I am totally fascinated by odd-toed ungulates. :D  And that's a pretty perfect list, honestly.

Makes me wonder how many people have heard of tapirs.
They're such cool animals (from an evolutionary standpoint.)
Like the characatures. :)

And do outline a tapir epic. The world has so many poorly-written epic wolf comics, it could use a well-done tapir one. Even if it's only outlined. >3

I like the leetle one. c:

I'm drawing Tapirs for my art project so I sat and gawped at these for a few minutes.
I love how you can make cell shading look so pretty and I adore the sketchy lines.
They are simply amazing.
