Predator Prey


More animals! With NO people whatsoever in it! I didn't cheat this time!

I think anytime I see a horse fall or trip, even when I know it's staged in cinema, I inwardly cringe. There's something so traumatic about a quadruped collapsing. Deer and horses especially; it could be their large bodies with their thin, narrow legs. Don't get me started on the Kentucky Derby....

This image changed a lot from the initial idea in my head. The mountain lion came later because the horse was too droll on its own. A bit different than what I'm used to, but I hope it still works with all the other stuff I've been crankin' out. If the colors seem very uh...saturated, I apologize and lay all the blame on my laptop! Enjoy!

Yeah, this is super awesome. Really really nice. Horses are such a challenge to draw too.

I also agree about horses falling. Eagh! Cringe-worthy for sure.
