Teddy Roosevelt-MythicalSafari by MikeDimayuga Teddy Roosevelt-MythicalSafari by MikeDimayuga
commish for tim.

tim wanted teddy roosevelt on a safari standing over a crazy mythological beast. i ended up doing a manticore-sphinx thing. really fun to do. there are little bits i want to change but overall, i think i hit the mark with regards to what i planned to do.

i also enjoyed the researching process. i think its a close like ness and the uniform and the rifle are kinda/sorta close. ok, maybe not the rifle... but i still did the research. aside from the animals getting slaughtered, i now think safaris are freaking awesome.

I love how the smoke, branches, and blood 'drift' outside of the border like that. :) Great texture on the fur, too!

I'm British and I wish we had someone like Teddy as a prime minister.

haha! i think his PR handlers would frown on the whole hunting safari and bear killing. PETA and ASPCA lawyers would have a field day! he would get into so much trouble taking pot shots at the paps!

Srew PETA and ASPCA.
Besides, I don't think the ASPCA has power over mythical animals.

Teddy Roosevelt:
He stared into danger's mouth
And then stabbed it's tongue

There was never a greater man.

I always pictured the protagonist of The Most Dangerous Game to look like Teddy.
