3 Hyenas by AmandaMyers 3 Hyenas by AmandaMyers
Some studies I did. I want to do a big stylized image of a hyena. I don't think I've found what I want yet, so I will keep at it.

Apparently I had not commented or added this to my faves. This is really cool. I like how it's a gathering of some of the major features that come to mind when you hear the word "hyena." It's a great representative piece with a lot of character. I'm really fond of the middle panel in particular, just because it's very obviously a hyena and very much not the standard focal point. The movement and the lines really appeal there, too.

Thank you so much! While none of these ended up being the final "big" piece I did, they do have a boldness that I really like in art (sometimes). Hyenas are such wonderful creature to draw and study. Their angularness lends itself so well to stylization! A part of me gets irritated that others don't see the potential in them and that they stick to either a cartoony style or very realistic one.

I quite like the middle panel too. I don't feel that it fits as well as it should with the others, but it's all I had when I got ready to upload this. At this point in time, I'm not yet bored with the subject and foresee doing other pieces to both push my style and how hyenas can be represented in art. I would really like to try to combine the angular nature of their frame with a more lively and loose style. I'm kind of stuck on how I can solve this problem, but I will be patient and see what comes to mind.

I'll definitely look forward to it, then! I'm glad to find another hyena-lover!
