Gator concept

The second creature I did for class in school. As with the other pieces i wasn't worried about topology, as these were meant to be concept illustrations. I wanted this guy to be more of a vertical swimming gator, moving vertically and being propelled through the water by the tail on it's back. After seeking feedback I made some proportional fixes that are not seen in the video. The professor thought things were too "samey samey" as she likes to put it. The hand belonging to the poor bastard was added just to give a sense of scale and nothing to do with my snide sense of humor *WINK*

Moray eel creature concept

My first illustration for my digital ink and paint independent study for this quarter at school. For this and all subsequent projects I did something I had never done before, which was to take my own reference photos rather than rely on images on the internet. I borrowed different elements of the creatures and tried to make it work as a whole. Most of the color of this guy was done in Zbrush, except the eyes, and the drool from it's mouth which I added in Photoshop.
