Gorilleo by Viergacht Gorilleo by Viergacht
The magnificent gorilleo, half-gorilla and half-lion, is one of the most popular genetic hybrids among exotic pet owners. But while cute as cubs, they grow quickly and their great strength combined with their high intelligence and unpredictable nature make them highly dangerous. Ibutho, a massive silverback male, is a resident of the Mutanimal Rescue Sanctuary.

First time I saw this I assumed it was a proto-werewolf. I really like Hyrotrioskjan's werewolves, as (like yours) they're less werewolves, and more shapeshifters inspired by wolves. This could be a very primitive ancestor of your werewolves.

Two animals, bred from a line of strong, noble leaders, merged together to make a true king of beasts. This is simply incredible, great job!

Fascinating.This design inspires me to create a chimeric creature that is a mix between a tiger and a gorilla as a mascot for my deviantart account since these two species are my favorite kinds of animals hehe.I would take care not to make it look like this guy though so the design would be original.

You would not BELEIVE how often people swipe my work. I've had stuff taken and used to promote an indie movie, on websites, on a tv news story, on book covers. It's so freaking rude.

Yeah a lot of people are like that.I've seen a lot of people's work being used on videos on youtube without the owner of the work even knowing.
By the way,I hope you don't mind me watching your profile.I've seen a lot of your work on your gallery and I like what I saw,especially the spec-evo ones.I myself am starting a spec-evo project and seeing some of your spec-evo work is also what inspires me.

An ape and a big cat, the two animals most popular among the braind-dead exotic animal keepers. And now they can be killed by both at the same time.

It's especially sad for the exotic pets, as they are rarely properly provided for and when something happens, it's punishment by death.

This is an absolutely fascinating hybrid concept!  I really like how you blended the features of both animals here.  Blending the paws with the digit structure of the gorilla and the large forequarters of a lion with the massive shoulders of a gorilla worked really well.  What I really like though is how well you merged the feline face with the gorilla face.  I can see both influences but it still looks like a unique creature.
