The Quest Continues...

Another attempt in my journey to find cuteness. It has gained some approval, I think I'm on the right path.The combination of the bunny frog and the Tuk-tuk bird seems to have fulfilled the continuously elusive definition of cuteness this week.

Sketch Meat 022

Apparently, women in the age group of 25-27 who are earning pharmaceutical degrees and who also spend an offensive amount of time looking at cute things on the internet do not find my monsters to be "cute enough". So in an attempt to appease this fan base, I have created a few creatures that will hopefully be more in line of what would be considered "cuddly and fuzzy" (with a liberal sprinkling of horns and claws, just deal with it).

Creature Concept: Spike Leg Monster

What do you get when you mix a chicken, a butterfly, and a random bunch of invertebrate parts? Why, it's a spike leg monster of course! This concept was originally designed for a CGHub activity, the description of which may be found here.

Sketch Meat 021

This is a grabby sack monster, for want of a better name. I have no idea how he would grab anything with those tiny t-rex arms, but I guess nature finds a way.

Convention and Festival this Weekend!

Hey folks, it's been way too long since I've posted and I'm sure many of you feel abandoned. Well, now's your chance to get all the attention you crave (and pick up some cool art, too). I'll be showing at Heroes Con in Charlotte, NC this Saturday and Sunday. I'll have a selection of prints available and will be taking commissions as well. I will also be catching up with fellow artists Billy Fowler and Adam Goudelock, who will also be plying their wares.

If you can't be bothered to go to NC, maybe you will bother to go to Atlanta for the Artlantis Festival this Saturday. My doppelganger with a beard, Beau Raymond, will be selling art and making merriment in my stead. Several of my original pieces will be for sale in addition to a variety of prints. There will be heaping ton of cool artists showing, so make the trip downtown!

Creature Concept: The Ancient One

This guy was created for another CGHub activity - Creature Planets Activity #32. The concept was "the ancient one" and we also had to create an idea for the planet on which this critter lived. I thought of an animal that would grow large in maturity and would have no natural predators as an adult. The planet has abundant resources and a mild climate. These combined factors allow adults to reach extreme old age. That's the basic idea, anyway. I think there is more potential in this design and I plan to develop it further.

 I'm very excited to announce that my design won this challenge and it was featured as an editor's pick on CGHub!

Creature Concept: Tuk-Tuk

The Tuk-Tuk was created for a weekly activity over at CGHub. It's always fun to see what sort of descriptions the moderators will come up with. This one in particular caught my interest. The Tuk-Tuk is a medium sized flying creature with four eyes. It lives on cliffs near the ocean, is a carnivorous hunter, and is aggressive when provoked. Another part of the challenge required that we depict a male and a female in their natural habitat. The male is the more colorful of the two.

Sketch Meat 017

I've been wanting to draw bunny frogs lately. The following sketches are what is produced when attempting such an endeavor. Sometimes you get bunnies, sometimes frogs, and sometimes you get things that make no sense whatsoever. It's a creature concept that I plan to further develop. It has much potential.
