Flying High by imaginism Flying High by imaginism
Here's a painting I originally posted a week or so ago on my FACEBOOK

Title: "Flying High"

I did it for my "Creature Design" class coming soon on Schoolism.com!

Just like Kei, I hope to make the group on FACEBOOK a little more special by posting some images there first. :)

The image above is 1600x1200. I made it into a new wallpaper available on our site, so feel free to download it and use it or email it to friends!

Bobby

On another note, Kei, T, Peter and I will be hanging out in Charlotte with some very cool artists at the Heroes Con! Where's Clint? You coming? Hope to see you again as well ;) Good times!

Hey I forgot to mention that this painting was the result of a poll I had in April when I asked what I should paint next! The results were to paint a big furry funny/dark original creature so there you go everyone! :)

This is beautifully done, and the wings look amazing! What are the bird species did you used as references? The coloring on the hippo looks so familiar, but I can't quite place it.
