Catoblepas by BubbleWolf Catoblepas by BubbleWolf
So this years :iconanthrocalendar: is all about mythical creatures and my contribution this time around is the legendary monster, Catoblepas.

I really wanted to incorporate the different ideas on what Catoblepas is/can do and a big focus of that became his stare of stone! The image is just under the size of A2, created with Prisma pencils.

How do I get my hands on this years Anthro Calendar?



You can now preorder the Calendar from here [link] at a discounted price until September 30th !

Remember to check out :iconanthrocalendar: to see the rest of the work alongside images from previous years!

I have to ask, are all of these a part of a book, are they your characters? Or do you just come up with short dialogue for each picture randomly? They're all SO amazing!!

I think he was referenced alluded to in the FFVI game WAAAY back when, but I confess I know nothing of the actual myth.

I love the power demonstrated here; it seems to embody the piece. The way the stone shatters as he looks around in a gaze, his muzzle a mask of exertion. I love how the bursting rock has some light amid the debris--not only does it give added definition to the particles, but it enhances and makes physical the power it would take for a beast to do that when shackled like that.

The horns are like double guns mounted on the side of a battleship. It really adds to the depiction of his strength.

The color choices almost match the red and blue of a 3D picture, as though he might jump right off the page. Well done :salute:

Lol that's an interesting point on the red and blue, can't believe I didn't notice that before :D. If only the glasses worked!

Yeah a quick google gives lots of references to the ones in final fantasy, they seem to be much more like big dog things instead!

And I'm glad ya like ^_^!

Well that's striking as hell, has a real power to it. Love the colours too, minimal though they are.
