Shadow Of The Sky by Nimrais Shadow Of The Sky by Nimrais
The final version of my submission to this year's RARE 2012 Anthro Calendar. The theme is mythological anthros, and I got the Peryton.

"The peryton is an animal combining the physical features of a stag and a bird. (...) Often it is portrayed as a winged deer, sometimes including tail feathers. A peryton's feathers were either green or light blue in color. Its skin cannot be pierced by any known weapon, and the creatures themselves are invulnerable and possibly immortal, or at least very long-lived."

You can pre-order the calendar until September 30th for a price of 20$ (+8$ international shipping). For ordering and more information visit our official website: [link]

This made me think of Resheph: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resheph . Sometimes the god is depicted as a stag-(or gazelle-)-headed human with a bow and arrows, flying over a battlefield.

Now this has to be one of my favorite pieces of all the works of both this calendar and the previous ones. You've worked the combination of subjects so naturally together; the final design turned out gorgeous! And I love the background and colors. They create a great atmosphere for the piece. And as always, I adore your anatomy. I cannot wait for my copy of the calendar to arrive! :D

Oh wow, I had never heard of this creature, always appreciate new knowledge on the mythical beasies :3

What a fantastic piece! <3
The dynamic, strong pose, and composition which makes it almost feel as if he's about to swoop off into the air followed by a hoard.

Absolutely gorgeous colouring and painterly style, I am in awe of all those little details- especially the way you've added what looks like a perfect mix of fur/feather detail on his chest, it looks like it's almost made out of tiny pieces of un-penetrable metal, which is perfect for the description of how invincible a creature it is!
