spotted hyena thread drawing
remember how you watched the Lion King
and were like "maaaaan those hyenas are jerks"
but then there was that one National Geographic special where they were night-filming the real conflict between lions and hyenas
and it turned out that the lions are usually the aggressors
THE SPOTTED HYENA: UNFAIRLY MALIGNED IN THE POPULAR CONSCIOUSNESS!
I think it's incredibly funny that storks are the sweet baby-deliverers of legend, but in reality many species (including the marabou) are TERRIFYING.
Who says scorpions can't do sweet papercrafts for you?
I have to admit this isn't all the way finished - I haven't mounted it or backed it or anything. I've been doing a lot of hand work, like, spending whole weekend days watching ten episodes of The X-Files and embroidering until my arm hurts. Since that project is so large, I wanted to do some more thread sketching because it's almost instant gratification. I tend to stick to doing all black outlines (very much like how I draw with black pens) but this guy got some grayscale.
