Plesioth by Juandfr Plesioth by Juandfr
I've been playing Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, and decided to do some chibi portraits of the characters therein, inspired largely by *bleedingcrow's [link]

The plesioth, commonly known as Plessy, is a large, semi-aquatic wyvern that eats frogs. I find them quite irritating because when they're in the water (which is over half the time) you can't hit them with melee weapons. Favouring the hammer, and completely avoiding ranged weapons, this vexes me to no end. >:(
In any case, I based the anatomy here on older tadpoles. Quite proud of this one and will offer prints if there is interest, since the resolution's high enough to make decent sizes possible.


Done in copics on bristol board, then fixed up a bit in Fireworks.

Well of course. No matter how cute it is, it'll still obliterate you if you arn't careful.

Hate this thing, hope it dies!!! DXDX

Other than that cool drawing, looks cute but that is another ploy for it to kill me. DX

The solution is a Fire Attribute lance, and then you'll have a delicious grilled plesioth :P

There are a couple more in my gallery; I've been planning to do more, but I'm not sure if I will, since they take so much time and unfortunately it would be in a legal/illegal grey area to sell prints.

I really want to, I'd just like to be able to make some money too. :\
Even e-mailed the north american Capcom's HQ for permission, but was denied. Ah, well. C'est la vie.

I've done some of my own drawings by paint so I've no got copyright to worry about it feels much easier

A few hours here and there while working on a piece are great fun. These things take 20+ hours, though. XD
I'm not sure what you mean when you say that you don't have to worry about copyright for your painted drawings, though. :?
