This is a creature that I did some really rough sketches of a while ago that I finished today! I call this creature a ‘Moss Yak’. Moss Yaks are the equivalent to our American Bison, they have a large afro made of mosses and plantation. As they age the mosses on their bodies grow and as they grow the old calcium deposits shift out of the skin to become solid rock-like formations. Generally the older a moss yak the larger the calcium deposits on the skin. Males have larger horns than females.
In mating season the moss on the bodies of the Yaks turn into more Autumnal colours such as reds and browns. From foot to the top of their backs an adult is around 9 feet in height and can weigh up to 7 tons.
Just ordered myself some new ProMarkers! Its been too long since I’ve done any good traditional art and I’ve been really inspired from my trip to Manchester Expo to really sit down and put away the tablet for a bit just to get back to the real traditional basics, away from all that photoshop shtick!
I can’t wait! Hurry up mail man!
Manchester con was amazing yesterday. I met some really inspirational people to my artwork as well as some others I’ve seen at every expo and con I’ve been to in the past!
I’ll be having a lot of fun going through all my prints today and hanging them all up around my work space!
