pencil creatures

The beginning of something new
This is the start of a painting that is very close to my heart. I started this under drawing while I was traveling through the southwest. Are there any places or things that inspire you?


“Mum’s here” 

This movie really inspired me. I came home from work and here, 4~5 hours later, you can see the result.
Occamy are really adorable creatures. Here a tiny version of this big baby in a teapot. Btw, I just think that only a British - muggle or sorcerer - could request specifically a teapot (and not, I don’t know, a box ?) to (re)capture an Occamy :3

The first thing he notices is the light cyan wings and the humanoid body with bird like feet, clearly a harpy, a child one at that. Harry thinks the best thing to do is to grab him and pull him above water as quickly as possible, so air can make it into its struggling lungs. That was his plan, until he made eye contact with it for a split second and that’s all it took for a flood of emotions to hit him like a sailfish.

Or: All harpy Louis has known is the sky, all merprince Harry has known is the sea, except when they’re together.

Animalgamation #13 - sloth / cheetah.

This coarse-haired creature is such an agile climber that even the most skilled predators cannot catch it from its treetop habitat. People once thought captive specimens enjoyed human contact because they would climb onto their keepers’ backs, but it was later discovered that they simply detest being on the ground and will scale any upright object to avoid it - even a person.
