Thinking this is my last entry for '09, and I couldn't think of a more fitting image to end with. One of my first attempts at digital painting, proved more frustrating than enjoyable. I eventually shelved the image, but I've always liked this idea and as the year approaches it's end, I figured 'let's finish this image'. Pulled it up in Photoshop, dusted it off and voila, it's done. It's based on eyewitness testimonies, rather than the 'Plesiosaur' theory, hence the knobbed horns and horse face.
On a side note, I love Cryptoids, even if I don't necessarily believe in them. They're the quintessential 'What Ifs' in this world and despite what my inner skeptic believes, I keep hoping they are real. Hey, ya never know.
