Tortoise-Sloth by Iomma Tortoise-Sloth by Iomma
Super sorry for the phone quality pic, best I could do without a scanner handy. :C

Final for Drawing 2, critter somewhat inspired by a tortoise plus a sloth (hence the lanky arms and shape of the skull), with a hint of gorilla. Grows plants in pockets in its shell, where it slowly digests the growing roots, since it moves too slow to effectively gather enough food to eat regularly.

Thanks! After spending my entire term in Drawing 2 slacking off and pissing off the teach (who thought I was a rebellious punk and wasn't learning much), and then blew her away with this. This bumped my grade form a B to an A lol

Course, I had to explain to her that I suck at remembering people's faces, and thus have issues drawing anything other than stylized faces, but when it comes to reptilian creatures, I can go all out. For almost every single gesture sketch, I replaced the face with a fish-head, over exaggerated the flexibility of limbs, and otherwise warped every single person sketch into that of some horrific eldritch monster (mostly from boredom).

Brilliant.  I love the concept and direction.  The art is also phenomenal and I can't really notice the effects of using a camera to take a photo beside maybe the pic being a little dark.

I sure hope this got you an A+ on the final!

That is an awesome bit of symbiosis. I'm so proud. <3

Very creative, and I'm glad it worked for class.

I hear that learning ninjitsu is popular in their teen culture.
