This is awesome - the saguaros are a nice touch :) Also, the jackalope in the front looks like he has deer antlers instead of antelope horns, which just makes the picture even better in my opinion.

Stumbled upon this browsing through the art and I just have to applaud, stomp, and whistle. What a great piece! I love the convincing solidity and excellent draftsmanship of your figures and the subject matter is wildly creative. I would love to be able to stretch to illustration this beautiful. Love it.

The expressions!! D8 The expressions speak volumes
The colors and movement make the southwest look beautiful rather than some dead, barren wasteland.

That is awsome how it's done. My type of mythical creature is the Rabbitora it's copyright to me. They look like rabbits with fairy wings and a horn growth on their head. If you want to I give you permission to use that idea. They are normal rabbit type though but you can still make them anthro...

Great work by the way
