Imaginary Creature

We were given an assignment to create an imaginary creature.  I first looked at the skeleton and then the muscles because I wanted to make sure the creature would actually work and be realistic. I then afterwards I looked at its skin.

I thought my character looked two stiff. Therefore I reposed it for my final painting. I also added a leaf so the viewer can imagine its size.
