Paintings: Loch Ness Picture Day!

"Loch Ness Picture Day!"
5 x 7"
Acrylic on canvas board
Commission / SOLD

Honestly, if someone would just let Nessie know that it was picture day so that he could put forth his best effort, the "mystery" would have been settled long ago! I like to think there's an old, cracked glass print of him somewhere, just waiting to be discovered.

This commission was for a friend, who gave me free reign aside from requesting the Loch Ness Monster. Indeed, it was while researching the monster's description (hence the two antenna), and by extension plesiosaurs, that I hit upon the design for Sigmund the Sea Monster. Sigmund's cameo in "Family = Fandom" was essentially a trial run for "Picture Day!" Most plesiosaurs had large flattened eyes and splayed teeth, which lends them a somewhat... endearingly unfortunate appearance. I'm sure this isn't Sigmund's last painting, either, as I adore him.
