The noble mind_final

Felt like taking the previous idea further. A finished painting plus color variations.

When I painted this creature, one of my aims was to show that this thing has pride and charisma. While painting, I thought of possible backstories for him: maybe he and his people live in a jungle, and his surface forms would give him a natural camouflage. His blue color would also make him blend into the night, the nocturnal hunter that he may be. Perhaps their culture is very exotic in comparison to our own, with high respect towards nature and aesthetics. They might carry small containers of poison with them, which they can use to poison their blades and arrows. If they spend a lot of time on their feet hunting in the middle of sharp foliage, they may have to cover their legs with fabrics.
