Terryl Whitlatch Creature Course #5 - Loxodonta & Mooslephants

Big post this time!

So this is the last few weeks of the Schoolism course combined into one. Our first task was to study elephants, both Indian and African, so we could learn the subtle differences in their anatomy (there's more thasn just their ears you know :P)Here's what I created with the appropriate notes:




It was really interesting to do, as I certainly underestimated the number of anatomical differences myself before starting this.

Next we had to take another animal and combine it with any of the previous studies thus far. I chose to take these elephants, and combine them with a Moose. Creating a Mooslephant!


And finally we had to create an illustration using this creature.

I chose to try and tell the story of characters from Magic: the gathering. Specifically a group of Kor as they tried to tame this wild beast.

If you've seen my development process before you should be familiar with the steps I've taken to make this illustration:
