I love your creature, that's one thing I plan to work on. The work on the colored ones are great as well. Keep it up!
There's supposed to be a remake of the Horror Classic "The Creature from The Black Lagoon", one of my all time favorite movies...ever. Problem is...the creature design was so far ahead of it's time, it still passes for good creature design today, and how to improve on that?
Figured I'd give it a shot. Tried to go more man and less fish, but still remain true to the original. Mostly experiments with various scale textures and gill arrangements...nothing really solid. Anyways...
Managed to squeeze in a quick sketch before bed. Just a coloring of The Creature pencil I posted earlier. The color scheme is a little monotone, but I really didn't picture the Black lagoon as being blue, or even very clear. More of a murky, greenish grey soup...perfect camouflage for this little beastie. Photoshop, little over an hour.

I ended up finishing the Creature from the Black Lagoon sketch. My wife saw the speedpaint and liked it so much she suggested I finish it. Beginning to see a pattern developing here...pencil sketch, color, finish. I'd like to do some color sketching just for color sketching's sake at some point. Maybe I'll start on the Sketch a day group or something.
Man oh man am I diggin' yer stuff!
Your creature designs are faboo! Please keep posting!
Decided to color this sketch, since the Creature from the Black Lagoon image has got me in a nautical mood. The color scheme is influenced heavily from Todd Harris' 'Meg' image, which I though was perfect for this, though I did the initial concept sketch of the beast long before I ever even heard of Todd. Roughly 2 hours Photoshop.
Quick sketch/WiP for Art order's "Owlbear" challenge. Not quite sure where I'm ging with this at this point. I'm just fleshing things out in a monochrome first...see what floats and what sinks. Things seem like they're starting to gel, but we'll see how it progresses.
I really love your creatures, especially the turtle and flying beast. You take the skeletal structure into account really well and you digital painting skills are great. Keep up the good work!
Ooh, 'owl-bears'! Hmm.. perhaps bigger eyes? Imho they need a little more 'owl'
I really like the sea-turtle-creature; well done! Let's see some more!
Look, see! Nifty art! http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=99803
