gatchagrey: ... thanks for the enthusiasm, gatcha! just to clarify, i won't be perfectly alternating between my characters and other people's, but i am going to try and keep it as balanced as possible. next character will be posted monday-ish (and it will be one of mine).
StarBlazerM31: i appreciate it!
Today's illustration is a monstrous steed for "Leo Skeletor". He resembles his mythological namesake, but with some minor differences, and of course he's patterned after Battle Cat, Panthor, and my own fan character, War-Tiger. He is not to be confused with Montecore.
This one feels a little stiff and "blah" to me. I'm happy with the color scheme though... I feel like I successfully emulated the bright and garish style of 80's action figures.

PROFILE: Armed with a poisonous sting, a deafening roar, and the power of flight, the fearsome MANTICORE serves HIGH PRIEST LEO as loyally as the High Priest serves the God-King of Infinita. Like Battle Cat, Manticore is a highly intelligent creature, fully capable of speech.
HISTORY: Upon achieving the rank of High Priest, Manticore was granted to Leo by the God-King of Infinita himself, as a servant and ally. Manticore is the head of his clan, and is widely known for his arrogant sense of pride as well as his steadfast sense of loyalty and duty.
