Te Hokioi by comixqueen Te Hokioi by comixqueen
My latest Illustration project; illustrate a sentence from a myth or modern novel.

I chose this Maori myth, and am illustrating it on the assumption that the Hokioi is a Haast’s eagle and the “hawk” is an Eyles’ harrier (whose coloration I’m basing on an Australasian swamp harrier).
Sorry for the crappy photo! :C


Despite the fact that I really dislike working with gouache, I'm happy with how this turned out. :)

9x12 Bristol. About 3 days of work :p

great form, great perspective and the likeness to the animal model is insanely good! The only thing i would suggest is that the speckles look haphazardly put. Strangely enough, there's almost a bizarre symmetry in nature, usually the fibonacci number line, to placement of markings.
