A few of my bird illustrations that I created for a new brand of supplement called ‘Strong’, created by the agency Pearlfisher and art directed by Karen Welman. The other birds can be seen here on my portfolio site: www.lyonsa.com
For fystliago~ The prompt was knights templar/german armor, but I ended up going more of a dark knight approach. Those wings are hard to design around, and the first sketch wasn’t doing quite what I wanted (even though it showed the red cross). :)
Sans terrible beginning sketch, this took about 2.5 hours.
A small portrait of a Maned Wolf, as observed at the Denver Zoo.
Despite the name, maned wolves are not actually wolves, nor are they foxes (which they sort of look like). In fact, they are the only member of the genus Chrysocyon, and are not related to any other canids alive today. It is thought that they are perhaps the sole large land predator that survived the Pleistocene extinction. Either way, they are a very old species, and are really cool.
