This is one of several "predatory animal" Algoryn skimmers that I painted for Gates of Antares.
These just happen to be the perfect shape to allow for the two eyes on either side of the cockpit, and even the pilot himself has those flat armor plates which make it easier to continue the pattern onto him. The helmet also has a bit of a crest, so that helps as well!
Several critters are planned, including birds of prey, dragons and so on.
This was painted in a live Facebook session, showing all the materials and principles used to paint it! Here's a link to the painting video:
The wolf pattern was a lot of fun, but the other predators will be also. I have a few birds of prey, along with dragons and other serpents planned. Stay tuned!
