Yakram Forest by Simanion Yakram Forest by Simanion
Size: A4
Medium: Watercolour

Always fun to invent a new creature on paper and then turn it into something completely unexpected. Ooh some ram-like horns...maybe I'll draw a sheep, maybe it'll b- BAM it has a beak and is green. Continue painting along slowly and then BAM it's made of drippy green vines/grasses and is all of a sudden gigantic. I'm so easily amused.

I really like these greens all mixed together. Emerald, lime and grassy greens, with some pastel flavours and some purple to set it off. One of my favourite colour combinations.

Dont' be afraid of the ear.

Let me know your thoughts :D

This is funny to me. I love creating new creatures and new words. The tip of the horn looks a bit flat and could use more shading. I'd consider this a surrealist work if you had played with scale more, like including more tiny people or buildings in the landscape.
