Eurofurence 2010 Banner Project

My contribution to the Eurofurence 2010 banner project, the (Rothschild) Giraffe. She's wearing primarily beaded jewelry since the bead trade is an important source of income for Ugandan women, and Uganda is one of the few places this animal still lives in the wild.

This will be printed at a whopping 91.4 cm x 500 cm and hung in the main atrium of the hotel along with 10 others, to spell out the title of the convention. I'm incredibly thankful to have been included in such a grand undertaking. Even though it nearly killed my computer.

All eleven banners will be auctioned off for charity at the end of the convention.

Centaurs & Flying Monkeys

Messing with some centaur designs.

I like the idea of them having multi-toe hooves. It makes sense to me that they'd have at least four toes on their feet if they have five fingers on their hands. After all, a centaur isn't just a human glued to a decapitated horse at the waistline. It's a whole species.

The Spot-nosed F-monkey is one of the lesser known species of Flying Monkey. Though, due to their naturally calm demeanor, they are very hand friendly and easy to train. Their popularity in the pet trade should start to pick up with the help of good breeding programs making them more widely available across the country.
