Name that creature by imaginism Name that creature by imaginism
Here's a warm up painting from this morning. What is it? You tell me!
Write a description about this creature. For example, it's name, species, the environment where it lives, what does it eat and so on. Put your creative juices to work! I'll pick my favorite and edit your avatar and your story into my post at the end of the day! Hopefully shed some exposure on to your DA page.

Tons of wonderfully creative stories! It was a very tough choice. And the winner is.... :iconspaceoliveoil: Short and interesting. I like it!
Name: Cariax - Carius Artemus
Lives in abandoned burrows because it likes to stay warm but it can't dig.
Eats insects. Can last outstanding amounts of time without fresh-air, which is useful if its burrow caves in.
Enjoys wet muddy mud.

Sending positive vibes to you all!
Bobby

It's a piripou, of course! It has a very sensitive nose and ear to search for insects what are their basic food. They live in small herds and the female are very attached to their babes cause they only can have one or two in all their life.
The males are quite arrogant but they have good instinct and are very protective. They only have a partner for all their life.
Their height is between 50-80 cm and their weight between 30-70kg but sometimes they're more big.
They're lazy and slow but their live it's simple and safe 'cause their skins bring them a good camouflage.

I can tell you more thing about it but I'm in class!! See you!
