Woo, it's finally done! Contest entry for
Unfortunately I didn't have enough time to make a head shot view and info of babies and the inside of the mouth. Still, I am rather happy with how it turned out
I made this design perfect for use as a mount due to the fact that it has a straight, solid back and nothing protruding from its back or middle section that could get in the way of a saddle or a rider's legs. Rather than a bit in the mouth like a horse, it is controlled while riding with the reins attached to its horns.
I based the design on tapirs, jaguars, snapping turtles, and a little bit of bear
I hope you like it!Painted from scratch in Adobe Photoshop CS5 with a Wacom Tablet. References used.
