Haven’t posted in a bit, so here’s a few new creatures…
Been busy painting a few awesome images and recently finished two of them! Both produced for challenges over at conceptart.org; COW topic Venomous Vine Hunter and IOW topic Heavy Metal Album Cover. Had fun painting both of them and learned lots from them as well. Was also actually very interesting seeing both of these pieces evolve as I painted them.
Lately I’ve been on a bit of a mini character spree…First one I did was an interpretation of the Greek Goddess Artemis, next I did a redesign of Mulan from the Disney movie. Mulan was especially fun and wanted to jump on the opportunity to redesign Mushu, Mulan’s little dragon sidekick! Was an interesting experience, a little out of my comfort zone, but such compromises must be made to grow as an artist!
Lately I’ve been working on a a few things! First was an Elemental Rhino! For CGHub’s drawing Jam, went with a Rhino that is very angry! Also over on dA I noticed a few meme’s popping around, known as ‘draw this again’, so I gave it a go as well, repainted a creature that I called the fairy dragon, however now it seems closer to a more alien-like creature. Also I’ve been pushing myself to draw a few concept sketches in the mornings to help wake myself up, only started a couple days ago.
A redesign of a metroid creature from the classic nintendo video game series, Metroid! When this topic was announced on CA I got a little bit excited, being a big fan of the franchise (don’t tell anyone but metroid is one of the reasons I wanted to get into concept art, but seriously don’t tell anyone)! As shown in a previous post I didn’t stop with just the metroid, but also had a go at the other badasses of the series! Will try to finish of that piece at some point, plus I always wanted to try for a redesign of Samus, both in her varia suit and her zero suit, but that’s for another day…for now, enjoy this metroid!!
