Yeti Makeover for the latest Fortean Times Cover

The latest issue of Fortean Times (FT #298, March 2013) is in the shops and features a repainted version of my Yeti illo on the cover (I am tempted to refer to this as the ‘vanilla version’ from now on).  Making the Tibetan Yeti over as the Siberian ‘Shurale’ was pretty straightforward as I’d got most of the elements on separate layers in the original.  It was just a question of removing the stupa and prayer flags then painting in a new layer with wooden church and some trees.  The Shurale supposedly has a horn on top of his head which gave me a chance to dig out my old photos of rhinos for reference.  I also widened the whole composition and repositioned the figure slightly.  It’s printed really nicely and I am quite chuffed that my brilliant plan of adding new cryptids to my portfolio has already paid off.  I’d better get on with doing some more….
