Birdboon Supial by Simanion Birdboon Supial by Simanion
Ink on Paper.

I just grabbed the smallest pen I had and started making marks. Eventually, some kind of critter began to emerge and I followed it to its logical conclusion: the Birdboon Supial. A bird-baboon-marsupial. I feel like it'd be comfortable in New Zealand.

I did this really late at night and relatively quickly for me (a few hours), which subsequently gave me RSI. But hey, it has fez feet!

Most of the anatomical choices around the body and head tend to make sense. There is a dissonance between the shapes being made by the bottom leg parts, making it look like it's being balanced on a floppy jelly. In conjunction with the asymmetry, the pointy hook shapes the legs are making are disturbing the illusion that his feet are supposed to be fezzes, and make it look as though he has no feet and is balancing on top of the fezzes on pointed hooks. This unintentionally creates a focal point on the least visually interesting part of the piece. A smoother transition between the organic legs and the inorganic fez shape would have helped this, or a larger transition with added texture notes.

The rest of the image gets away with imposing hard lines over organic looking lines, because of incorporated textures. The mouth and chest speak the language of natural patterns, even though the shapes around the mouth are hard and scale-like.
