Swarm by screwbald Swarm by screwbald
Another little piece I painted between Nordguard comic pages--it's about 4x8 inches.
Barbary striped grass mouse, lilac crested roller and scrumptious red locust.

Initially I was dissapointed at some of the wolf art, but seeing stuff like this really shut me up fast.

Whoa, that looks really cool! I really like how the bird looks so happy with himself while everyone else is fighting for their lives ^^

I hope they cook those hoppers before they eat them. military survival guides warn against eating the larger ones raw.

My perception of the scale was a bit off. First impression was a Tiger on a Giant bird about to stab an 'Evil' locust. :) Very nice use of detail and...diffusion? for the background.

they just goes in perfect tandem - a mouse, and a bird - both with the liking of eating insects.
