A mythical beast of supremely pointy compassion and danger…

I wanted my own hybrid mythical creature because unicorns and gummy bears can take the imagination just so far. I pondered on this for a days and came to the conclusion that combining two actual creatures from land and sea would have the effect I wanted.

ALPACAWHAL is the rendered result of my pondering and I couldn’t be more pleased with it. In my imagination, ALPACAWHAL is a kind and compassionate creature, and it can often be aloof or even goofy, but if you fuck with it, it could throw down, lower its head, and gore your ass away.
