Ratha Challenge day 1 Meoran by Viergacht Ratha Challenge day 1 Meoran by Viergacht


:iconseasaidh: had a neat idea to promote the Ratha's Creature graphic novel Kickstarter - draw a piece of fanart a day!

So this is a speedpaint of Meoran, clan leader at the book's opening and a real jerk.

So you love the Ratha book too. You made Meoran look too cool for a Bad guy. Do you have a dewing of Bonechewer?

He looks a bit too bulky... I always knew he'd be a bit fat, but the graphic novel version of Meoran showed him to quite lean, in fact ALL the named are a lot leaner and taller than I expected!

I'm confused is it a saber-toothed lion?

It's an original species based on a sabertoothed cat-relative (a nimravid), Dinaelurus.

It reminds me of Charles R. Knight's Smilodon Painting :)

Especially when you consider he was blind in one eye and extremely nearsighted in the other! I think it actually had a positive effect on his work. If you ever get the chance to go to the museum of Natural History in NYC, you can get very close to some of his paintings. They're actually quite small, and the color and detail are amazing.

Haven't read the books. But this is gorgeous.
I am jealous of your toning… and how he really looks prehistoric, there is something in his features.
And the strokes makes it so impressionist <3
Looking forward to your other Ratha arts c:

He looks quite awesome :3

I'd always imagined him as a cheetah-looking cat with a full mane, but this is better.
