In the Canopy by Damalia In the Canopy by Damalia
School project again--I'll just try to upload a few at a time. This might be my favorite piece from this year....well, at least it was the most fun for me. I ended up starting it about a day and a half before it was due, which was stupid, yes, but I got it done. So there. My take on the often-illustrated Aztec Jaguar-Warrior. He's got a couple different species of toucan in there with him, because I like toucans. It kills me that I had to piece this together in photoshop from several photographs, because the original is just a gem.

Acrylic on Board, 12"x16"

Honestly this is one of the most amazing pieces of anthro art I've ever seen, not only because I absolutely lov the idea of meso-American anthros being jaguars and think that this guy is adorable as f-ing foop! (:love: :huggle:) but also because it's mood and atmosphere is perfect. Photorealistic works often look dead to me in terms of colours and such, but this looks so vivid without overdoing it and has such deft in this could look like a photograph of a real anthro from a distance. Amazing, really amazing :D the only thing that's wrong is that this doesn't have a DD feature :noes: But that can be remedied >:3

Wow. This is fantastic. I see so many pictures with anthro like characters, but I can't believe any of them. This guy though, well, I can imagine him dropping out of a tree and skewering me with that spear of his. Not that that's always a good thing... Anyways, incredible. I love it.

And this is exactly how I would picture wild animals if they were anthros. Beautifully done, it's a wonder you got it done in such a short span of time!

I'd love to see this guy as a real Aztec, like a person. But hell, this is epic. Lovin the toucans. Great head dress thing. Good colours. You deserve the llama I'm about to give you.
