    The style reminds me of the concept art of the LotRO orcs. Something about the way the eyes and color is handled.

    I have to say, its about time you shared this with the rest of the world. And boy is it worth sharing. I have always liked the creatures designs, but am pleasantly surprised at how you did the mist. It works really well.
    Well done!

    Duman: Well, I toiled over the mist for awhile...not to mention Nov/Dec I hardly worked on it at all, haha. Thanks for keeping up on it in the WIP thread!

    keith_v: Thanks! I'm glad you like that aspect...the entire time I change the colors up a lot, but I knew I wanted the mouth area to be striking, so I'm happy I achieved that.

    Everyone else: Thanks so much!

    Have you done any more album covers? I thought that bands would be leaping all over you after the Bloodbath ones.

    I've had several bands contact me, but I think they expect a little bit cheaper work and haven't written me after I tell them my rates. I'm comfortable with that, though, as I don't feel that my rates are all that high.

    There is one major black metal band that I have been talking to that tentatively wants to work with me, but no new album from them for another year or so...so it's the waiting game on that one.

    Overall, I am eager to do more, but at the same time...I only have enough time for so many (which is why I keep my rates where they are at). The day job and wife time restrict me from being able to bang these out in a week, so my spare time is valuable.

    No. That's why I thought it would be really amazing. They always have awesome album covers too.

    Yeah, I changed that because I thought the trees were a bit too busy in the other one. They looked a little bit too "Spooky Old Tree with the Berenstain Bears" if you understand my reference (if not, google it)...and the foreground tuft of grass and whatnot just got in the way of the mist/breath that I was trying to accentuate.

    Either way, though, I appreciate the crit...backgrounds are my weak spot still, so I like to know opinions on that stuff.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the comments, guys.

    cmoreland: Haha, the lead designer for Doom 4 is actually a good friend of mine...unfortunately, I have no plans to move to Texas any time soon. I'm sure they've got the kickass design department quite covered, though.

    SteevDragon: Thanks! He's a little obscure, so it's nice to see someone familiar with it. Glad I realized it well! I'm actually considering doing his brother, Pazuzu, next depending on whatever paid projects I have coming down the pike.

    Updated the thread with my latest album cover for the band, Behold! The Monolith.

    I also consolidated my work into one thread for easier management on my part. I see others do the same, so I figured I might as well.

    Thanks for looking!

    Oh HELL yeah. That album cover is awesome. On Humwawa, I love the way you painted the vapors coming out of it's mouth. Fantastic stuff.
