Snowy Beast

Author Comments

That was done for the creature of the week 71: Arctic Mount, over in the art forum. It was done about 2 and a half to three hours, as I only found out about this at the last minute, and only had three hours of spare time to do it.

"This is my snow beasty (not its real name, lol). It has huge feet for walking on the snow, a thick white coat for warmth, it is rather stocky also for warmth. I went with the classic 4 legs because I wasn't sure how I would do with 6. It has cat like eyes for optimum vision in both snow glare and dark winter - it's eyes are blue because they don't stand out too much in an artic environment compared to yellow or something. That 'beak', which I see as being more like rhino horn in construction, is for digging around through ice and compacted snow. I wanted to give it some kind of horns, but I wanted them small and relatively light so I went with this. The background was a last minute throw together before I had to get ready to go out."
