Illustration Friday: Fast

Illustration Friday: Fast

Cheetah is the fastest land animal and the pronghorn antelope is the 2nd fastest.
I usually use Adobe Illustrator to do the basic shapes, but for this one, I decided to just use brushes direct in Photoshop.

This was inspired by the 1980s era Safari Cards. I used to get samples of these cards in the mail when I was a kid.













Here is my sketch:

It's better for the antelope this way than have that cheetah run behind him :) Very nice stuff!

I used to get those cards too! I must have hundreds of them stored away, totally forgot about them until I saw this - happy animally memories. Gorgeous textures btw.
