Making Of / 07 August 2019


If you'll forgive the naming convention, I'd like to tell you a bit more about my J4-Kalope! The idea for the second in my series of monster folk came during the 4th of July here in the United States...ok, that, and all those wonderful Area 51 memes. 

The Jackalope is not quite a mythical monster, but it did have potential. Along with the Jacklope, I wanted to "'Merica" her up, and so came the idea of the firearms and a "wild west" kind of influence. Horned material form her boots, chest, and bracers. On her bracers she can extend guns like those little derringers you see in old movies. Her horns on her legs, chest, and head contain cannons because, well, why not?

The next step in the process will be to ink her, and should give a better indication of the final piece.

Thanks for looking!
