Windsonde - Jiacomo Ref by sparrowstampede Windsonde - Jiacomo Ref by sparrowstampede
Whew, finally finished this crazy thing.

My 1st take on a griffin for :iconwindsonde: ... and I had to pick a Tookie Islander.

Out of the number of concepts I thought of, I really had to pick Jiacomo first because of the kooky design possibilities.

Aery Name: Tookie Island
Character Name: Jiacomo
Character Species Combination: 'I'iwi (Scarlet Hawaiian Honeycreeper - Vestiaria coccinea)/Giant Anteater (Myrmecophaga tridactyla)
Rank: Young Tookie
Gender: Male
Character Personality: Jiacomo could be one of the "calmer" personalities found on Tookie Island, but don't get him wrong; he enjoys a good romp and feast as much as the next Tookie.

Though a much better climber than he is a flier, Jiacomo can and does fly around from place to place. His flight patterns are short and like comparing an A-10 to an F-14. Won't be as aerodynamic or acrobatic or pretty, but it gets the job done.

Most of the time, Jiacomo spends his days climbing trees and digging great lumps into any available ant mound he can find in the quest for "The Perfect Meal". Something about an ant that tastes like a honeypot...

This is a really cool combination. I especially like where the wings are positioned!

Whew I'm glad someone does! XD I had a doozy of a time drawing the ones here (and many skeleton sketches later), and I'm still not sure if I'm getting them in the right spot. One of the many things to work out in the next challenges. :D

I totally agree; it fit so well that I couldn't resist. ^_^ I still will need to work on getting the proportion of it to stay the same when I'm drawing it though. One of the many things to work out during art challenges!
