~~Alphabet Reptiles...what would you like to see?~~

Postby Spindown » Thu May 24, 2012 11:17 am

Its very possible I will do repeat letters with different animals, I'd be horribly remiss if I didnt make another "B" without a Bluey of course, but what other animal species would you guys like to see represented? I'm looking for ACTUAL species starting with the letter, not something like "a is for african bullfrog", more like "a is for anole, etc."

These are for my zazzle store, and all proceeds from these items will be donated to my local herpetological society (PNWHS) to help fund adoptions/rescue/fostering/education.

I need a good variety, as it cant be all lizards! LOL

Right now I have "B is for Bearded Dragon (and soon to be bluey)" and "C is for Crested Gecko".

All input is extremely appreciated.

Examples so far:

Oops forgot to add, things like "eastern" or "egyptian" I'm avoiding. If they are actual different dpecies such as eyelash viper etc are ok...I want the general species name to be the letter. My goal is to make them s easily identifiable as possible. Esoteric not so much. Common names not latin also. Keep up the letters ! Right now I have a for anaconda, b for beardie, c for crestie, and g for gila monster. Some of the letters mentioned but not in thisb thread are in the reptile art thread since I wasn't sure if anyone even was in.terested lol...ill keep this thread updaed instead.

Voting for d, e, and f will close Sunday at midnight (gmt -8). I will combine the votes here and on my facebook, and will post the resulting letters here. Never fear! If you voted for a creature that didn't win, I will do my best to make that pattern at a later date.

Once all letters are complete, I have had several requests for a poster of them together, and in the future I'm considering doing a lizard only, a snake only, an amphibian only and an invvert only alphabet/poster. Gotta keep busy after all! Each letter (and there is some up now) will be available as a mug and light colored shirts (dark colors are coming soon) at my zazzle store, ww.zazzle.com/reptilestuff*

Thanks for the in.put! Voting fr letters other than d e and f will happen next week!

Sorry fr typos I'm sending via phone ;\

Dumeril Boa
Egg-Eating Snake
Fat-Tail Gecko
Gargoyle Gecko

Yes have been using those when desperate but they are far from complete. I use the iherp species gallery. Much more in depth with a myriad of great poses and pics you can't find on google. Kingsnake is also an interesting place to find source art.

Looks like people already posted a lot of ideas, so I just have to say HOW CUTE! Great illustrations. Are you creating a child's book? Hope you do a collective post of all the letters when you are finished!! :D
