I’ve never been great at coming up with original ideas. That’s probably why I so enjoy fan art and fan fiction because it saves me the trouble of having to come up with any original characters or worlds for them to inhabit. A little while back, however, the idea for a random original creature popped into my head, and I just had to draw it before my rare bout of creativity vanished.
I’m not sure what this creature is supposed to be, but I had a very clear vision in my head for what it should look like, and I think it turned out exactly as I envisioned in my mind’s eye. I also had a lot of fun doing the background. The practice I gained from painting with Bob Ross, paired with a few references I got from Unsplash (a great site for downloading images that don’t require credit), helped me to create some decent scenery despite backgrounds being a major weakness of mine. All the trees were drawn with the same color and a 100% opaque brush, but the scenery looks foggy thanks to multiple layers of semi-transparent mist.
