Finally new art!
I’ve always wanted to draw girls riding snakes. Like giant deadly but gentle snakes, each one personalized to it’s girl and capable of being seen as having different personalities.
So the dark haired girl is the the Rider of Crotalus (Crotalus is a genus of venomous pit vipers found only in the Americas). She rides a snake that is inspired by horned rattlesnakes. I tried to make him more of a serious snake I guess, regal and short tempered. He doesn’t listen to much of anyone but his rider.
And the light haired girl is the Rider of Porthidium (Porthidium is a genus of venomous pitvipers found in Mexico). She rides a snake inspired by hognosed vipers. Her snake is a curious and hyper female not known for being slow or afraid of much.
“The Rider of Crotalus.” and “The Rider of Porthidium.”
