For a concept art project I tried to figure out what a Pegasus would look like if it actually existed and how, if at all, it could fly. It would need cloven hooves to grip the rocks like an ibex, be about the size and structure of a young dear, have vulture like wings that spread around 40 feet, be covered in feathers rather than fur, a strong ribcage and keel bone, and the tail feathers of a bird to guide its flight. It’s not perfect, but it was interesting to work out.
Here is my Ely poster, without the type. It was about diving in feet first. I didn’t start with the value, like I usually do, but I don’t hate how it turned out. I will defiantly always start with value now, though, it became problematic later on in the process.
