White-Blue Peacock…This is amazing!
Pics from multiple sources. I’ve attached a link to a blog with a collection of pics.
Edit: Apparently this is not true albinism or even half albinism. Look up piebald animals to see more examples of this phenomenon. Thanks for the feedback everyone :)
Mecha Bear mock up! RTS style. Would you play? :D

WIP’s and initial sketch breaking down the idea.
Henryk Siemiradzki (1843 - 1902). Siemiradzki was a Polish painter known for his “monumental Academic paintings.” Typical subjects included biblical scenes and scenes from classic antiquity. What struck me most about his work is his manipulation of light and shadow. Lots of dappled light, temperature shifts, and beautiful handling of shadow colors. Amazing work.
Siemiradzki won many awards and commendations during his career. Originally he studied to be a scientist!
Information on his career can be found on Wikipedia. A gallery of his work can viewed online through Wikipainting’s which is where most of these images came from. I’ll list it as the source so you can check it out.
Vladimir Orlovsky (1842 - 1914). Hey guys. Sorry, but I can’t seem to find any readily available information on Orlovsky. He painted breathtaking landscapes of the Ukranian countryside and I love his sense of epic scale in his painting. I found these through a great blog which links to other amazing Russian painters which I’ve included as the source. Enjoy!
Albatross and assorted Owls!
