This is probably (barring any unforeseen calamity) one of the two primary characters in my thesis project. She’ll have wings, and she’s actually quite tiny, smaller than a real pygmy hippo, for that project, but I just wanted to work on getting a good Hippo design first and foremost.  Got a B+













I definitely got some great feedback on this one, from initial rough to final version, and the drawover (given after the grade) was especially helpful on this one as well. I’ll definitely rethink the pupil and tongue construction and her clarity on the back front leg was enlightening. I will also lighten everything up as hers, I have a hard time with that, for some reason things are always off, contrast wise, on my older Cintiq. I won’t make the pink as prominent. I like that better on mine.
