DANKA,MVS & GEB - thanks for the kind words,
I'm not sure my work is especially clean compared to others, as I dont think my method is that distinguished, I usually start from a very detailed pencil sketch, ironing out all the design details, so I'm not guessing with the paintbrush, I use the pencil marks as part of the paint-job itself, they really help keep everything in check. And quite a few layers too, this keeps everything distinct and clean.
I hate insects, just the thought of them makes me squirme but your art shows so much of their beuty I can't look away. amazing majestic stuff.
Wow dude these are fantastic!!!
Here's a couple more images from the book,
Sigmund Nastrazurro has blogged an insightful analysis of it, @ (planetfuraha.blogspot.com) amongst some other really good articles on speculative biology and biomechanics, if you're serious about getting nitty gritty with the actual fabric of concepting new lifeforms his website is a good place to get familiar with the challenges, it goes into real detail. (for example there's a detailed endoskeleton design vs practical application article here.
The book is on my shelf, I love it ! very inspiring
First of all: Ew. Bugs..

I especially love the bright and vibrant colors of the insect series..those battle scenes are intense!
Just found this sketchbook through the ConceptShips blog! Really awesome work, especially love the colours/lighting :)
I'm stunned! Your work is Brilliant! Beautiful and Brilliant!

Incredible! It's so inspiring to see so much detail!
WOW. The most amazing stuff is the small stuff in in this world. Because we never really notice it. Always paying attention to the bigger things. ABSOULUTLY LOVE THIS.
Sorry for the infrequent updates, part busyness and part waiting for clients permissions. Here's some more devilish cats for Fuzion/Hellfire and a creeky Golem for LOD's. Thanks for the kind messages and sentiments, I place great value in crits, especially here at CA.org where its more expected, so please fire away.
