I was gonna do a six legged exoskeletonned horse thing with tusks like a beetle, but I have decided against it for three reasons. 1) I want to go fantasy not astronauts now, which means the reduced gravity necessary for such a creature to exist is not as simple to come by. 2) I want it to look like a monster not a lame-o herbivore. 3) I realize now, horses look stupid.
So, back to caterpillars. I'm gonna do a [real] study of a hickory horned devil tomorrow. Attachment 1423847
I didn't have time to finish the color study today. I'll post it tomorrow! I'm going Mayan for my culture. The idea is that this Mayan frat boy has to go out and paddle a caterpillar, then dress in its skin, to become an accepted member of his fictional society. He goes in with a club and a loincloth then after the fight he has acquired the right to wear cool pimped out Mayan clothes. like in 300 when the kid spears that wolf. basically.

Aww maaaan. still not done I've spent like 4 hours on this so far haha.
I'm learning a lot about color that I never noticed before, but mostly I've learned to work on a larger canvas. What you see here is 100% zoom haha. Attachment 1425353
Didn't finish again today. My primary goal right now is just gonna be to get faster I think. Also, family double dash tournament kept me busy
anyways. A-to-the-Z-to-the-T-E-C, there ain't no fighter fancier than me: Attachment 1426059
Should I be posting the images I'm using for reference on these?
I'm probably not going to finish this challenge... got back to back to back tests on wednesday, thursday and friday with lots of homework to boot.
anyways, here are some sketches for my final. I think number 3 is the most predatory so that's the one I'm going to use. Different colors though. Probably green, red, and black. Attachment 1427359
So I like where I'm headed, but I can't shake the feeling it becomes more horribly phallic by the minute. At least he'll be creepy enough. I'm not gonna finish this on time so I might make a couple more different designs as well and make it a sweet piece for my portfolio~ Attachment 1427997
