Salorse by Ninjerina Salorse by Ninjerina
It possesses the speed of a horse with the mane of a lion, skin of a rhinoceros and face of a salamander. The Salorse is usually herbivorous and feeds on swamp vegetation but will be omnivorous if the situation is advantageous, i.e. egg stealing, scavenging, etc. The opposably fingered hands/feet greatly assist in this effort.

Done with blue pencil/micron pen.

Cool design. I love the odd combination of animals and the textures you used on the skin and fur.

This is very well-done. The details and such are great, and the concept itself is quite imaginative. Good job!

awesome, it looks like you had a lot of fun with it... just really well laid out - this sort of concept would translate well into zbrush, mudbox or maya with all its interesting forms and textures. Great Work!

thanks! for the idea I just drew out one thumbnail concept and I liked it. For some reason even though teachers always tell me to do a ton of concepts, I often find my first one to be most intriguing. All I knew going into the big sketch was that it would be some quadruped with some big mane. I feel like my traditional pen skills is still faster than doing details with a tablet (for some reason). Yay for microns pens!

micro pens are the best! I like tablets and photoshop/painter for correcting the drawings and rendering the final product but not for the initial drawing. do they teach you basic quadruped anatomy and animal anatomy as well there or is that something you've had to research on your own? your teachers probably just want to cover themselves if you went on to do production and stuff because art directors might like some of your other ideas over your first even if you feel your first is the best one.

They have an animal drawing class but I dont know if there's anything specifically for quadrupeds. Wow my macbook is being a piece of shit this is the second time ive tried responding to your message. Macs are overrated! I've mostly practiced quadrupeds on my own, as a chick I like horses by default. :thumbsup:

definitely a pc person, but i've had to work a lot on macs... they are definitely overrated (and i can build a pc for $300 less than retail). is it just horses or do women just have an inclination to like animals in general? anyway, great work with the anatomy - the front legs look almost human in their bases, and the back legs have a little more of the horse elements with the pelvis more like a cat. It is a very fun drawing to look at!

Yessm I mean the virus thing is very nice but I feel like there's a ton of stuff I miss out on by having a mac (games, software, etc etc etc) and pay more besides. That and some people wanna pay x amount more for its minimalist design. Whatev. I think the instinct to nurture tends to make girls more fond of animals, although I think in art school there's a higher fondness of animals in general. Most girls I dont know dont make Salorse-type creatures, they tend to be a bit cuter. I think evolution and the capabilities behind it spur my creativity. Perhaps also why I still heart dinos so much?

I'm watching Planet Earth right now woohoo
