Earlier in the year, I thought it would be cool to reinterpret traditional fantasy animals in more natural ways- meaning, considering the traditional design and figuring out what the animal would look like if it evolved in real life.
First up is the pegasus, probably one of my most favourite creatures from mythology. This is the initial sketch. I am treating it as though it's an evolutionary mash up of a bird and a horse.
I am striving to get one of these illustrations finished every week. Feel free to yell at me if you haven't seen me update in a while!
