Simple concept, the meerkat plays the role of the scout in my animal kingdom.
Being as one of the most naturally careful and alert species on the planet, they make the ideal scout for their abilities to spot danger and move/hide quickly.
I’m bucking up the drawings in terms of quality so I can get more detail in. Just so that they seem more “full” as a piece of concept art or whatever. I mentioned in a previous blog post about these initial sketches staying initial and just jotting down all the ideas and creating them first. Once that’s done, I can get to creating more complete illustrations.
