01. Giant Pangolin by xoXmusicislifeXox 01. Giant Pangolin by xoXmusicislifeXox
I'm gonna try out the 100 animal challenge again lol, and acually do it, I wanna draw all the different animals, see if I can do it lol, this is number one, Giant Pangolin.

Info on it from [link]

The Giant Pangolin (Manis gigantea) is the largest of the scaly anteaters or 'pangolins'. It lives in Africa along the equator from west to east and its diet consists almost entirely on ants and termites. Because it eats only ants and termites, the giant pangolin has no teeth and cannot chew. Its main threats are habitat destruction, the bushmeat market, and the illegal medicine market. The giant pangolin, like other pangolins, is nocturnal. It is a good climber and a good digger with its strong claws, which they curl in their paws when walking around.
I'm gonna keep the list here.

no problem!

Yeah, a bit, I usually just doodle the animations as guide lines then finish them a million years later ahah. If I animated this guy, I'd have to make the spikes just simple lines, those main ones along his back I could probably keep the same though.

Pangolins are possibly the best thing in existence :D Good job on making its body look solid and real, while still keeping the cuteness intact.
xoXmusicislifeXox Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2010
Thankyou :), he was quite interesting to draw, imagine animating that sucker though D:. So you think it looks okay? :) , I was thinking the scales were too far apart, but I was goin for a cartoony Pangolin so I dunno, Lol.
anyiewo Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2010
Since the drawing's unshaded, I think that the far-apart scales work pretty well - they show spikiness and form instead of just a pattern, which mimics the form of real-life pangolin scales :)

Do you animate most of your drawings? I could completely imagine this character in a cartoon... although it would take a LONG time to animate!
