Lovely Beasts Behold!

My teacher gave this assigment a couple weeks back and he got the idea from the nifty Beasts! books. We had to illustrate folk tale beasts. I found out about this awesome guy the Mapinguari who is a legendary red haired ground dwelling sloth from the Amazon. I had loads of fun brainstorming images of him! and painted him in oil! ENJOY HIS DANCIN!

  1. YO this looks so good. I had no idea oil could do that, and by "that" i mean, i've never seen oil look like regular paint. it is always ridiculous tones or a van Eyck painting.

    reminds me of curious george. maybe it's his cousin.
