This lovely intercontinental mix of animals shows off the diversity of the animal kingdom as much as it shows off the diversity and talent of its arist city son.

The shaping of all the animals feels fluid and realistic. The parrots look especially lifelike. The skunk’s tail looks amazing. The mandrill’s face is instantly recognizable and has some clever parts usage. Another clever technique is the effective usage of the angel wings for the tiger’s cheeks.

The placement of all the animals and the lush foliage brings a nice balance to the overall composition.

The album has alternate shots of each animal along with additional build notes from the artist. I especially love this detail shot of the baby mandrill
