Tundra Unicorns by chalicothere
Tundra Unicorns
Another illustration from my mythical beats series, this time depicting two species of unicorns in a tundra landscape.  The smaller wolf/phenacodus-based one is supposed to represent the older versions of unicorns that had nasty temperaments and were said to attack people.  The larger more rhino-like species represent the more modern and tamer unicorns.  The smaller one is an omnivorous species and when it gets hungry for met, has the potential to take down something much larger than itself.  The larger unicorn has every right to be afraid!
Brachiosaurus Papercraft by chalicothere
Brachiosaurus Papercraft
I decided to make one of my more recent prehistoric CG creations available as a papercraft.  This time, it's a brachiosaurus.  You can download him right here and you'll need photoshop and .rar opening software to use the file.

The difficulty is about 7/10.  He's still more challenging than average, but not painfully so.  If you print him at my recommended size, he'll be 11" tall at the shoulder, a fairly modest size.  There is potential to go much bigger and I'd love to see someone attempt to build him at twice this size.
Opie Vollstandig Papercraft by chalicothere
Opie Vollstandig Papercraft
I thought it was time for this guy to get a major upgrade.  This is a papercraft version of Quilge Opie from Bleach in his Vollstandig form.  He was made with an amalgamation of all sorts of parts.  I used the Uryuu and Zommari models from Bleach Vs. Crusade as bases, then made all the extras such as the wings, boots, and sword myself.  As with most of my papercrafts, he's available for download right here.  You'll need photoshop and .rar opening software to get to the file.

The difficulty rating is 10/10, so build at your own risk!  The head and wings are extra challenging.  Regarding the latter, you will need a wire or cardboard armature inside all while avoiding to make them too heavy for Quilge to carry on his back.  The whole thing will need to be printed on the thickest cardstock you can find.

This character is a copyright of Bleach and the original models belong to Bleach Vs. Crusade. 
Fu Dog by chalicothere
Fu Dog
Sorry it took so long, but the mythical beasts are back!  This is an illustration of the legendary Fu Dog of China.  It's said to be a friendly guardian so I thought it would be perfect as a Doberman pinscher.  It's also based on a Chinese dragon and a lion.  Interestingly enough, this work came out looking like a pastel drawing but it's actually photoshop, pencil, and a scanned-in texture.

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.

Hey! c: I was wondering if you are open for trades? 
chalicothere Featured By Owner May 19, 2015  Professional General Artist
Normally not, but I think I will make an exception and do one with you.  What would you like?
BreyerKat Featured By Owner May 19, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Really? :la: Ah there is a lot of characters id love to see dogified in your style... I could save them for another trade in the future. I recently got into this interesting anime called FLCL, and it would be cool to see Haruko from that show in your style. I see her as some kind of herding dog (border collie or Aussie) unless you can think of another breed. And possibly Misaki from K Project? Hope this isn't too much from me. Thanks! C: what would you like from me?

You're welcome!  This is a good time while I'm relatively free.  Let's start with two characters each for now.  I can draw those two and in return, I'd love to see As Nodt and Nnoitra (both from Bleach) in your style.  I draw one as a Doberman and one as a Husky, but you can mix this up as well.  I'll get started on yours very soon!

Do you have a drawing of hanatero from bleach as a dog?
chalicothere Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2015  Professional General Artist
You know what, I've forgotten about him.  I'll try to add one to my tumblr soon since he's fairly important.

Thank you:)

You're welcome!  I was inspired by the cute dog in your icon too, although he's a different breed.
