African Kings and Queens by effenndee African Kings and Queens by effenndee
Some of the inspiration from my holiday in Africa ^^ I saw a lot of the African wildlife, these included, which were breath taking From left to right there's anthro: Lion, A. elephant, Kudu, Buffalo, Giraffe, Rhino and Hyena (who seems to look more like a cat........ but anyway!) and I did draw a Zebra but it turned out terrible... :|
One day I'll finish colouring them 8D

Sorry it's a very wide file. It is larger as a downloaded file ^^

These are great! You're very good. I love the expressions on each one's face. It creates a persona for each one.

I particularly loved the lion and the elephant; the clothing designs, as well as the overall feel is very tribal. You captured the essence of their attires and attitudes ^_^

This is nice! The first thing though that came into my mind was "The Island of Dr. Moreau"

Great Personalities- I think the Lion could a been a little more Alpha, though. Nice creativity on this project...

effenndee Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2008
Thanks very much. The lion was the first of them that I drew and from there they became more and more animal-like. Still was lots of fun though XD

It's not bad, that you mean, the hyena looks a bit like a cat - as a relative of the felidae, it's better than looking like a dog ;)

effenndee Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2008
Wow... I would have thought hyenas were far closer to the dog family than the cat one! Learn something new every day! Thanks very much!

Those are very nice! I especially like the Kudu and the hyena ^^

Did something make the lion upset? Because he's looking quite disgruntled X3

Thanks very much ^^ I had a story going in the background whilst drawing these and the lion was grumpy for a reason but it's not really developed at the mo ^^;

did you see any hippos there?

effenndee Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2008
Yep! Only in the water though... and they were usually almost completely submerged. You like Hippos?
