Others This picture is called “Hinka Stand Off.” It features two creatures I drew as a kid: Kapamuriatei on the left and Creainka on the right (both of them are kind of terrible names xD).  This is Oyo, an owl character I came up with as a kid. He resides in a large tree called Timeragauti (“Time” for short) and wears a leaf pendant necklace because…I think it looks cool.  A while back I finished watching a show called “72 Cutest Animals” with my parents. I decided it would be cool to draw some cute animals. This picture is called “Cuteness Paradise.” Some of the animals were featured on the show–the golden possum, baby serval, knob-tailed gecko, and barking owl–but the others are just animals I think are cute.  A picture I drew for our local zoo for a contest a couple years ago. It features a lot of different animals around the edges. The middle is just a fantasy–you wouldn’t find those animals all together in the wild!  This is Moon, a “galaxy-colored” raven. The colors look much less like space than I wanted them to, but I still like the way it turned out.  High up in the trees, this dragon is calmly looking over its shoulder to make sure its pursuers are gone. They can’t fly, but bushy tailed dragons are extremely good at climbing and their large feet with long, sharp claws enable them to climb trees quickly to get out of harm’s way.  Two dragon friends greet each other in a secret meeting place. Neither of them is afraid of heights, which is a good thing considering they live high in the large trees. Their orange fur makes them stand out a bit against the green bark, but they are very fast and good at evading predators.  These are recent versions of the creatures I drew as a child called “Rinatues.” I based them loosely off of Tasmanian devils, so you can say they’re essentially jester-like bipedal Tasmanian devil-ish animals. I think they’re awfully cute.
