Work-in-progress on an introduction to Anomalocarid Girl, a foil for Trilobite Boy.
Unsure what an anomalocaris is? There's a great post over at Why Evolution is True by Matthew Cobb.
The idea that they might not have preyed on trilobites actually works out great: I kind of want Anomalocarid Girl to be a villain and love interest for Trilobite Boy. Sorta.
Here's another look at the sketch on my desk, done after dinner one night. I based the pose on Bottecelli's Birth of Venus, and that's an oil rig burning in the background that she's blown up with her guns.
On another note, thanks to everyone who offered advice on my last post - it's very much appreciated, and while I'm still thinking things over, I think I may try and limit myself to 2 personal art projects at a time for the time being. Above, is part of one of them!
