Creature Spotlight: Garret's Tuskrunner

So I decided on doing a concept exercise for myself to just keep my imagination going and just be sure to have some sort of drawing done, and this is all based on that last post! I got the idea of choosing an ecosystem(plains, volcanoe, forest, freshwater, etc.) and each week or so, do 3 drawings, consisting of a main food source (plant or something similar), a prey animal (thing that eats food source), and a predator animal (thing that eats prey animal.) It'd start with the main food source, but since I started with that weird lil' alien earlier, I present to you...

Prey Animal: Garret's Tuskrunner!
For now here's a colored schematic of the lil' guy, and since I already threw up some sketches of him previously, you can just scroll down to see 'em. Anywho, onto a bit of fluff facts:

Garret's Tuskrunner (named for Arthur D. Garret, the astrozoologist that discovered this species) is a plain-dwelling creature that inhabits the arid planet designated DX723. Unlike most animals, its designed to graze the bushes that inhabit its world, using a swooping action with the lower jaws to scoop, pinch, and pull the leaves off of the plant. It's long legs allow it to quickly gallop away, while the bony spike protrusions on the tail aid in balance and self-defense.

So that's it for now, tune in soon for the main food source!

Here's an old and a new monster. The first one is some demon dog that I did a quick doodle of, and the second one is...well, some alien that I did a quick doodle of. I named the second one Garret's Tuskrunner. Don't know why. I'm thinking of trying out digital painting on it, and seeing how much I actually suck at color (Hah!)

Nightly drawing

Here's a doodle from a couple nights ago. Just some drawing before I turn in for the night.

Warm up Sketch

Here's a daily warm-up I did. Did it on Alias sketchbook, which always never looks as good as my traditional drawings. The tablet just feels really slick against the pen, so I never have enough friction.

New blog! Now with 40% art!

Whoo! So I got me a blog! I used to have one in the past, buuuuttt...well, kind of didn't update it regularly, and then it just went poof one day. But no worries! I'm intending to have this blog work in conjunction with my website, so the sooner I get that up, the better. So here for your amusement is a few starter drawings to whet the appetite. See y'all soon!
