I had a personal request for a llama, so here we are. Llamas are the camels of the New World. Not only are they camelids, but they serve humans in much the same way—only in mountains instead of deserts and plains. They’re synonymous with the Incan Empire, but they continue to be a staple in the region to this day. They serve as pack animals, their meat as food, their fat as candle wax, their fur as textiles, and their poop as fuel. Plus, just look how cool they are.
This was another successful exercise in speed. Lay down the silhouette first, then paint in values with black and white, then add color in the end. Made more of an effort to marry this technique with my style and subject matter, and I think it turned out pretty well. Onward!
