In the Whisper of Winter

A Kirin, an eastern style unicorn, dressed in a winter cloak, walking about the snow covered floor of an old forest.

Goodbye autumn, and welcome Winter. I made this sketch a while back as a farewell to autumn. I focused on drawing something with a sense of elegance and peace. The character in this drawing is based off another Kirin I drew a while back.

Awaken Spring (a Kirin in awe of the first blooms of spring)

The dress in the winter sketch has been redesigned to be longer to be more suitable for the cold and snow. Also, the character is more deer like than the spring sketch (she has hooves instead of paws).

I plan to come back to this sketch and  color it. I’ll post it here when it’s done.

Anthro Cosplay: Thunder Wolf Challenger

Thunder Wolf Challenger, Monster Hunter 4 Zinogre

This Anthro girl is wearing a costume inspired by the game Monster Hunter 4 by Nintendo.

One of my favorite monster designs was the large thunder wolf wyvern, the Zinogre. They’re are relentless, channeling lightening through their static covered shock fur. And when they attack, the unleash waves of lightening that can bring any hunters’ defense down, then following up with a powerful pounce with their razor claws or slam with their sharp spine covered tail.

Zinogre Armor

These monsters proved to be worthy opponents. And can’t remember how many times I’ve lost a battle to them. And the armor you can make from this beast is so cool. That’s why I was inspired to make this sketch of a Zinogre like anthro wearing a similar armor set.

I call this sketch Thunder Wolf Challenger, for this wyvern anthro is looking for a challenge. Just like the Zinogre, she channels lightening, but she channels it through her blade, Wicked Thunder. She unleashes that energy through her thron covered blade, devistating anything caught in its path.

She hopes to one day find her equal in battle; a worthy opponent. Someone who can challenge her and face the power of her thunder blade. Until then, she keeps hunting, taking on one challenger after the next.
