Quick sketch  
I'd like to do a real post sometime soon, but in the mean time have one of my little creatures

D'aaaaaaw. This little plane beast is pretty popular just because it is slightly less antagonistic than most of the other creatures. I have a whole bunch of these sorts of fellows I'd like to sketch out, but I'm super sleepy right now.

Awesome thing about having to know all of the muscles in the body: knowing what groups you are bastardizing in your fantasy creature XD

This picture is a direct result of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukIZRD1mzLg (bless youtube, haha). This was some primary research my comparative professor did, proving vampire bats are pretty damn speedy on the ground as well.

Current Mood: sleepysleepy
Current Music: lovesong- cinema bizarre

Heee ^_^ Glad you like it. By shading you mean the flat sheet of grey to denote wing membrane that would otherwise block half my sketch?

I love that video. I can watch it on repeat like, endlessly.

The video was totally awesome. I think bats are adorable besides the fact that they smell like awful farts.

Hahaha, yes. I really should study bat anatomy, I'd probably be better at drawing my silly dragons. :P But yeah, the wings are gorgeous, and also I always am totally jealous of your drawings.


SOOOOO, funny story? I guess like 3 days before I got it my Dad took it out of the mailbox and sent it back, because he, LIKE EVERYONE ELSE, didn't know that I am Jonathan Forthwith! HAHAHAAHA.

Man, try being around dead, rotting bats. They smell like the fart was lit on fire and then vomited on. (How does one vomit on combusted gas...SHUT UP IT WORKS)

You know, I haven't actually tried drawing a full-out dragon since my hours and hours and hours of bat necropsies. I wonder if it changed my style? *blushes in joy and embarrassment at Inky's unfounded praise*

Funny story- as I was labeling the envelope, I was like "Her dad is probably going to get this and not know who it is and send it back". But I just couldn't bring myself to label it properly. Not with the vital information enclosed XD

I wish I had any idea of what you guys were talking about. Anyway, I think that creature looks really great, but then again you were always quite masterful with animal anatomy. My favorite part about him I think is his smug you know I am a badass facial expression.

*grins* Aw, thank you!

HAVE YOU SEEN THE VIDEO? HAVE YOU? It may be more hilarious if you have someone to share the WTF?? moment with, but I'm sure you can get the basic idea ;)

I really love the exploding ship
