Seahorse Bird by Polarkeet Seahorse Bird by Polarkeet
This was a design I came up with last December after a trip up north with Shane. Long story semi-short, I woke up one morning and stared at the wall for a long time, until I found a little pattern in the stucco that looked like a bird with a seahorse face. Weird, I know.. but I inspiration can come from just about anywhere.

I apologize for being so MIA lately, been working on a film, and now working on my portfolio. I'll post some portfolio pieces when they're done :)

The style is reminiscent of Disney's The Sword in the Stone. On a side note, this thing is absolutely adorable. The expression in the lower right makes me think of it trying to intimidate something. Little birds and their big attitudes.

This is so awesome. I was randomly searching for seahorses, and this came up. I love the concept and the colors.

stucco imagery can be really impacting. so can the images that pop out of the cracked pleather on bus seats.

Wow! I totally have experiences like that when looking at random shapes in the wall, rug patterns, sometimes clouds....then the second you take your eye off it, you painstakingly can't find it again.

Beautiful result, Lexus!

your gesture sketches are so evocative. i can see him animated, perfectly. NOW ALL HE NEEDS IS A NAME AND A COMPLICATED TOLKIEN-ESQUE BACKSTORY.

CRAP that's what I'm missing.. a regal title- preferably the son or daughter of someone very regal who posesses a ring or something. I will put on my thinking cap :|

last heir of the crumbling seahorse-bird empire! it's totally sweeping epic material :D

HAHA I love it! His mother was a bird from an impovered family, his father, an heir to the seahorse throne. They met on the battlefield and instantly fell in love after the father had defeated an invading army of thousands. His mother died prematurely of bird flu, and father sent him into kendo training at the age of 9 where he became feared and respected as a master swordsman. Seahorse bird fell in love with a bear, but alas, the relationship became strained once he learned that his lover was a carnivore.
Shit, I'd buy the book.
