Lol, I watched a vid where, I don't know why, but the wideberest stopped and turned around to attack in groups, almost killing one dog. It's nature in action, sometime cruel, but it was nice to see that it's totally not that easy for predators to live in africa. Those poor dogs almost fall always victims to lions :/

Though I have to wonder, are those fried eggs on the ground? o.O

I heard they disembowel their victims and start eating them while they are still alive. 0___0

I really like the style. Love how sleek and fast the dogs look, and their markings.

Oh yeah, they do. There's alarming vids of it on YT... ._.

On the other hand, they have one of the highest success rates of any hunting land animal. Whatever works...!

I love the way you did the flowers in the grass.. they remind me of eggs now that I look at them closer, but they read as flowers.

The flow and movement in this drawing is amazing! Yet again, I love your colors and atmosphere. Beautiful work!!!

Very nice motion in this picture.
I like the sky backdrop, that you used a light color to outline the subjects, the zebra's strip coloring, and the dogs - how they surround their prey.
Very nice. : )

This one has a wider color pallet and subtler shading than the others, so it seems like it's out of this series (if this is even a series). I end up just loving whatever you do, though, so just do whatever!

I love this fellas. Did you know that they are also called Licaon, after an ancient greek king who was transformed into a wolf by Zeus as a punishment for his religious fanatism? :)

prey to the deranged agenda of human excess sadly enough. Western standard pushes countries to cruelty on animals in order to compete with our monetary freedom, while western countries use most of other nations for slave labour to sustain it. Leaving a very small chance for the majority of people to become educated & kind. :( lots to do!

Meanwhile the animals are content with just murdering and eating each other. Oh to have such wisdom and grace! ;-P

Which makes up most of human achievements as well for that matter. Animals have alot more wonder to their behavior than just murdering & eating though. You should get to know them ;)
