Pengoon by arvalis Pengoon by arvalis
So way back in high school i had a brilliant idea to have a dragoon riding a giant monster penguin. When i was digging through old sketchbooks the other day, i found this concept and decided to update. I was looking up penguins and really liked the look of a macaroni penguin, so i went with it. The spear head on the eskimo knight's spear is frozen disease ridden blood, he pierces his prey and breaks it off. This maneuver helps him take down creatures far larger in size, he darts in on his mount, stabs, and darts out. He carries several spear heads at any given time.

Also sab digs penguins, sab also is turning 20 next week, so sab gets a dedication. Wish her a happy birthday :iconsabtastic:

Very cool idea with a fantastic execution.  Not a fan of the teeth inside the beak, but other than that I love it.  I"d love to see a whole series in this world about the interactions and lives of the domesticated penguins and the cultures who have them.

By far the most impressive penguin-related artwork I have ever seen. This is also the only penguin with visible knees I have ever seen. One problem, though. Unless the penguin were to remain walking in a 'hunched-over' fashion, the rider would fall right off due to he position of the saddle. Still, absolutely amazing. I may need to take a break from all of this awesome. Watch something boring and depressing, like the news. :matrixfight:

And how does he keep the kill from being uselessly spoiled as it is now infected with diseased blood?

great work, but one thing is bugging me about the concept of it. If the spearhead is disease ridden, how does the eskimo not get diseased when he eats the prey he kills with it?

This is truly awesome and a really creative idea! Never would've thought of it :)

One question though- you refer to the creatures he kills as "prey", and don't people usually eat their prey? Especially him being an eskimo, it's hard to find food. Why then would he kill it with disease-ridden blood? You would NOT want to eat that after.

Although, seeing as how he's riding a giant penguin and even owns spear heads made of frozen disease-ridden blood, I'm sure he has his ways around it ;)
