So I'm trying to create some new art for my final year as a participating alumni at the college's annual art sale. This is an in-progress shot of one of them. I enjoy pyrography (woodburning) on its own, as well as used in mixed media, so I figured I'd upload this separately from the final, whenever I'm done with it.
This is FAR from being an original idea, but I like virtually all nature based concepts, so I wanted to see what a forest-bearing giant wild boar would look like. Or maybe those are bonsais on his back!
Either way is fine. I would love to see more wild boar in art around these parts (though folks like ~luve
make up for some of the absence). Overall the animal is very under-appreciated. I don't understand, they're majestic and intelligent enough. And they're possibly more badass than most of your favorite predators will ever be!
If that's not enough: The piglets!
Disclaimer: I love Studio Ghibli's "Princess Mononoke" as much as the next person, but comments along the lines of "OHMUGERD IT REMINDS ME OF PRINCESS MONONOKE!!11!$@!" won't be responded to. Sorry!
Sorry for making commissioners wait. I promise I've been working, even if I keep hitting speed bumps. D:
