Rhino Bug

Today's speedpaint for Conceptart.org's daily sketch group.  The prompt was "Emerging from the rainforest haze and heat . . . a giant beast."

This one started out as a giant rhinoceros/ rollie pollie creature, but I ended up pulling in some ideas I got at a museum the other day from a South African Porcupine.  They have these crazy striped quills that I find rather beautiful. I think there's some Jurassic Park influence in there as well lol :)

    1. Thanks Quay! It was a fun piece to do, one of the first real "speedpaintings" I've done that felt successful to me
