Mountain Ichneumon II by KatePfeilschiefter Mountain Ichneumon II by KatePfeilschiefter
Old painting that I finally had time to finish. A second take on the design of the mountain Ichneumon. Still not sure which I prefer, though I tried to make this one less rat-like. Also, I graduated from Digipen Institute of Art and Tech recently. Yay! I've been spending a lot of my new free time practicing painting, brushing up on drawing skills and re-learning Zbrush. Hopefully I'll have more new work to show soon.

Much to do, gotta get better, busy, busy, busy.

And thanks as always to my lovely watchers for sticking around through this art drought.

the black bird is pushing so much the eye for it, it's dark value and the position is helping to lead the eyes to it, but it's just my opinion ^^ But the work is so much awesome, I love the creature in its details

I definitely agree with that critique. I'd certainly paint this differently if I did it again. And thanks!

I do like both versions of the beast, so I will be content with seeing either version. :) Those cheek whiskers are magnificent!

And congrats on graduating!

Oh, bye the way, I like this look a lot better, it looks more like its own creature and adjusting the facial features helped a lot to take away from the more murine creature you had going there. Also his elbow tufts look cooler aesthetically.
