Giant Sea Horse by chalicothere
Giant Sea Horse
I decided to create a cartoon for the Fantasia Lyrics Challenge.  The song I chose was "Let It Go" from Frozen and the lyrics that inspired me were as follows...

It's funny how some distance,
Makes everything seem small.

And the fears that once controlled me,
Can't get to me at all.

What's going on here is that there are two groups of animals in an aquarium, a seahorse and the big guys such as sharks and barracudas.  Naturally, they are separated in two different tanks and because the seahorse is some distance away, he's completely forgotten his natural fear of them.  You could view this story in different ways but personally, I see it as a cautionary tale.  If these groups of animals were to meet, the seahorse would get the shock of his life.
Nodtzilla Toon by chalicothere
Nodtzilla Toon
This is a toonified version of As Nodt from Bleach in his most monstrous form.  I found the design so interesting and unique as well as fearsome that I had to draw it as a Western-style cartoon.  Plus, I think in general this guy needs more fanart.  Rukia is there too, looking as uninterested as ever.  This was drawn on photoshop and was intended to be quick and sketchy.

This character is a copyright of Bleach.
CG Baryonyx by chalicothere
CG Baryonyx
I Just had to make a CG rendering of Spinosaur's smaller relative, Baryonyx on blender next.  This body shape was originally what Spinosaurus was thought to have rather than the short-legged body it's got.  I made it so that they both are to scale with each other and can exist in the same world.  Everything here was done by me, including the backgrounds.
CG Spino by chalicothere
CG Spino
Not long after I finished my Lady Spino illustration, the actual complete Spinosaurus  skeleton was discovered and it turned out to be a far more interesting and unique animal than anyone suspected that had some very odd proportions.  It has the head of a crocodile, the neck of a heron, the feet of a duck, and the bones of a penguin. This is why I decided to make a CG Spinosaurus model.  I wanted a way I could get used to this creature's anatomy since I now find it quite easy to sculpt low-poly models using Blender.  Perhaps this will help me draw it in the future.

I was recently tagged by :iconsetokibas-kitten: and really liked her questions so I decided to answer them.  Don’t worry about being tagged by me as I am very lenient about that kind of thing.  Only answer my questions if you want to.

1. Post the rules! (it helps)
2. Share 10 things about yourself! (I want to know more about you!)
3. Answer and make up 10 questions you have to tag and answer!
4. Choose 10 people and put their icons in your post!
5. Go to their pages and tell them that they were TAGGED!
6. Not something silly like "You are tagged you read this"!
7. You have to ACTUALLY tag 10 people!
8. No tag backs! (I don't want to write this again)
9. Don't say 'no tags' (That ruins the fun…)
10. Everyone that is tagged has to post a journal similar to this!


10 things about me

  1. I recently recovered from a badly broken leg.  It was a tib/fib fracture and took all spring to heal.

  2. I can now do everything I could do before breaking my leg and couldn’t be happier about it!

  3. I trained my cat to sit, give me five, and follow me. 

  4. I tried cosplaying for the very first time recently.  It was a lot of fun.

  5. I have an illustration I did for an E-book coming out soon.

  6. I’ve been getting back into non-digital painting but may or may not do anything DA worthy.

  7. I was given Animal Crossing New Leaf as something to do as I recovered and ended up liking it a lot.

  8. I used to be scared of heights, but got over it thanks to being on a ski lift.

  9. Aside from that, I really disliked skiing.

  10.  I love underwater activities like snorkeling and would love to scuba dive someday.



1.What Exotic Animal would you have as a pet if you could?

I want a Doberman more than anything, but they’re not very exotic.  Perhaps I’d choose a seahorse or small spotted gar if they’re easy to care for.

2. What is your favorite Sport/Outdoor activity?

Swimming and hiking.

3. What is your favorite Cartoon/Anime from your childhood?

4. What is your favorite Music genre?

Rock, although I’m not too picky about this.

5. If you could meet ANY of your favorite Fictional Characters, who would it be and why?

Right now, I’d definitely choose As Nodt from Bleach, no contest!  He’s just really cool in every way and I think we’d get along well.

6. Which Video game Series do you prefer? LOZ or Pokemon?

Pokemon for sure!

7. What is your favorite Animated or Studio Ghibli Film?

My favorite Studio Ghibli film is Princess Mononoke.  It would be way too hard to pick a favorite overall.

8. If you found a Genie, what three wishes would you choose?

1, a good, steady art-related job.  2, an opportunity to move. 3, see question #1.

9. if you could become an Animagus (either Normal or magical Animal) what would you be?

A werecat or weredobie.

10. What is your favorite International food?



My 10 questions

  1.  If you could get really good at one artistic medium of your choice, what would it be?

  2. If you saw a real life dinosaur, what would your reaction be?  Would you be excited and want to study it, or run for your life!

  3. List your 4 favorite characters from one series.  How would they get along as roomies?

  4. I know I’ve asked this before but, cat person, dog person, both, or neither.

  5. …And what are your favorite breeds (if applicable)?

  6. Do you prefer CG or claymation?

  7. Animation or live action?

  8. What is your biggest artistic muse at the moment?

  9. What’s your favorite and least favorite kinds of food?

  10. What kind of animal would you be most excited about seeing in the wild?


I tag…

Anyone that wants to do this.
