    DSG 1450: Creature • BEAST HAS FACE OF BALD, OLD, BEARDED, MAN W/ AWFUL GAPING MOUTH

    .

    [ Hopefully it's clear that the body will not be human... or only vaguely so. ]

    [ I was actually thinking quadropedal, but if you wanna go slug-like, millipedal, vulturish, elephantine, or whatever, go ahead. ]

    [ Main point here is that it's face is one of an old bearded bald man, and that his mouth has some horrible gaping quality. ]

    [ Enjoy! ]

    Reference used; inspiration for face was from a copper sculpture of the Akkadian King Naram-Sin (Oxford History of the Biblical World, pg. 39).

    Quick thing. It's a little hard for me to connect old people with NASTY HORRIBLE MONSTER, so I went with something a little...nicer?

    I really don't know what happened, I had a clear idea of what I wanted in my head, but I guess I couldn't figure it out while drawing it. Oh well, this is cool and sort of fits with the topic.

    It's a kind of hunter, sprints very fast through the wilderness towards its prey, slips ahead of them and startles them with the face on its torso... I guess haha

    Comments, crits, and advice always welcome!

    Sudsy – I like it, it’s rough but still very readable. I had a look at that old king, nice stuff. The first thought I had when I saw your beast with that head was LeChuck from the Monkey Island series :]

    Sprech4 – It may be nice but it’s still terrifying! A lovely and humorous creature, you pretty much nailed the brief. Good job!

    Copilotdork – Very cool, I like the effect you have going with the humanoid creature turning into a horror piece when one notices the face as the torso.

    Denzo – That’s a moustache of doom if there ever was one.
    I wish I could multitask like that, whenever I try to doodle whilst on the phone I end up with a broken leg or something similar.
    A sweet beast, I like the pool of drool in front of him along with that expression, like he’s raising one eyebrow at the interloper.

    Crowsrock – I like it! Props on the traditional media, the top part of the head reads really well, and the arms/legs look great. It has a sort of comical and frightening effect at the same time. That piece of prey better speed up.

    Ashton - crabpeople! Good work on the lighting, the left part of the image looks a bit busy though, the old mans face looks adorable :]

    Brewin – Image does not show up for me

    Very quick sketch, I didn't have the time to color it in though if I get the time I will.

    I was thinking along the lines of some old folk legend creature that the locals would talk about when someone saw some odd obscure shadowy thing in the marshes which would terrify them. Then they tell the stories of the creepy old man who used to live in the marsh which the village children would tease and mock until one day a kid accidentally lit his shack on fire. The old man's clothing caught fire so he dove into the marshy waters to extinguish the flames. However he couldn't swim so he subsequently drowned, his body then eaten by the crocodiles. The animals became sick from his flesh, and so spat him back up where he was reborn into a Kaquwada. A creature who hated children and would sometimes sneak into villages and drag a disobedient child back into the marsh to eat.

    Here's mine.. interesting eh?

    I'm experimenting with brush technique again, this time really thinking of forms... I think I'm getting more familiar with hard and soft brush rules... I still got a lot to learn, but definitely not bad first attempt! Great topic!
