Boar Sketches

I like boars. Unfortunately they've got really difficult faces, which is part of what's neat about them, but it also makes 'em a stone bitch to draw...my style tends towards rounding and cute-ifying, but I really want to preserve the essential delightful lumpiness of the boar.

Also, they never sell. The people who love pigs are few and far between.

Still, I've been doodling them off and on ever since I got this neat boar pendant by Foxfeather at AC.

I find myself much enamored with both boars and hyenas. But I've been told repeatedly that I'm a freak. I think I'm alright with this.

I love the "D'OH" boar on the bottom left. It's hilarious. And Smoke-Z is right, the one on the top right is very evocative of Ed. Something about the long snout and the way the dangling paw makes it look like he's talking with his hands. I mean... hooves. :)

That one on the top right looks like he could sit down to a tea party with Digger and Ed.

Ah, I love boars though! Fluffy pigs that live in the woods are the best.

I love boars too :) I've always liked how they look so much wilder than domestic pigs, with their furry ridged backs and tusks. The boar head in the upper left there is my favorite. They rather hard to draw and you did a great job. Luve's uniboar are amazing :) I wish I had talent like you two.

PS
Have you seen Princess Mononoke? They boar in that anime are some of my favorite. I love how they look.

I cried like a little girl over the poor Boar God in Mononoke.

I was sad when Lord Akoto died too. He was so cool...all silvery and blindy. And when they exploded all the other poor boars! So sad :(

In my :icondtf-stock: account I have a few red river hogs and some other piggies, feel free to use those if you need them. I love wild hogs, for some reason. Boars and such are really cool.

*grin* I've been admiring yours for ages--I wish I could work out a stylization as graceful as yours!
