Looks like a cross between a centipede and one of those graboids from the first Tremors. Nice detail. This one oozes terror and magnificence.

This looks so Wayne Reynoldsy. For a moment I thought that he has a deviantart gallery :)
Awesome creature :)

Yeah, it really does have that feel, I have been influenced by his work. So much of the ref I have to use for the briefs is his stuff.

The creature is old school D&D, 30 years old now, but this is my design for it.

Great job on a difficult creature,all those legs and fins and the whole "scalding in the artic" theme, cetainly dont make for an easy composition in my opinion.

cheers,

-and as i thrusted my sword into the air i looked at the foul beast that stood before me, the thick slime that coated it's mouth, but still i declared..- "I SENTENCE YOU TO A BOOT TO THE HEAD!"... -i was eaten alive shortly after that, but the look on it's face was worth it...-

absolutley amazing man xD

I like the "Predator" like mouth, really intimidating!

Oh the memories. Wonderfully painted! You're starting to remind me of Wayne Reynolds when it comes to the style you paint creatures in, which equates to supremely awesome! Please dont take this the wrong way, but I tend to set my personal opinion bar by his D&D art. Then again, it could just be the nostalgia of 3rd ed...hmmm....I dont tend to see him as often as I do you in the books anymore ;)

Yeah he is an influence, a lot of the ref I get for briefs has his work in it and to be honest what's not to like. I find that the detail in this kind of work really suits a single creature/figure piece, while I like to get more paintily for scenic pieces.

Ahh, right, that makes sense. :nod: One of the many things I've noticed about Mr. Reynold's art is that the character/creature always seems to be in an action pose, most of the time at some sort of angle running or jumping. It makes them very engaging. I'd almost swear he did half the 3.5 art all by himself, so I'm not surprised you get refs by him! :D What I love about the new manuals is that the artists name is so clearly visible on the side of the page, I've found the websites of lots of amazing artists that way recently. P.S. I watched Two Towers again recently and couldnt help but think of your work and stare at the armor designs :aww:
