Equilus Model Sheet by goldfishkang Equilus Model Sheet by goldfishkang
-- You may reblog this at my Tumblr here --

I had a lot of fun with this creature design, so much that I added more notes and action poses than I had intended to originally. It's sort of a cross between a lizard, horse, goat and giraffe. And armadillo.

At first I thought the lizard-like head and the tongue were a bit disturbing, but I eventually grew to think of my creature as being kind of... cute. @u@

Also, it GLOWS IN THE DARK. xD

Thanks to :iconsandara: for guiding me on this!

I don't think it'd be possible though D: It's not built as a mount!

i think you can mount one. just balance a saddle on its neck or somethin.

Little known fact: Makes a terrible mount for the following reasons: As a rider you can hardly look around its neck plus it's almost impossible to find a long enough saddle belt to fit around its belly and even if you find one the sharp talons will soon shred it. And don't even get me started with the head gear and how to make the equilus bow their heads so that you can put it on.

Great work, I enjoyed reading it.

It looks strong enough to support a small chair between its horns :P

Thank you! I didn't think many people would bother to read the text. Haha yes I realized that too, the saddle would be very difficult to balance with a back shaped like that. But I'm glad you like it! :tighthug:

It really is cute and a good design, the colours fit it too, although I wish it had a different colour as a contrast somewhere, maybe on the end of the horns.

Yeah I'm not very good with this creature's colours... ;A; all the colour schemes I came up with for it were of two colours. I should have added more rainbow into it D:

I'm going to be digitally sculpting this creature in my next semester, so hopefully I can get a 3D model out with actual glowing skin and horns. :w00t:
