    DSG 344: Creature: Lava Insect

    First DSG post. Normally an incessant pen doodler, but I got my wacom a couple of weeks ago and wanted to play. Charcoal and colour is something different for me. About 20 - 25 minutes total

    Just a quickie today, but I am quite pleased with how it turned out.

    Magma Tick
    DSG 344: Creature: Lava Insect

    Magma Ticks can generate internal heat which they channel out through vents in their carapace creating the glowing spots on their bodies. They use this inner heat to burn through the thick outer skin of the animals that graze on the lava plains, thus enabling the Ticks to reach the softer flesh beneath. Yum! :p

    Forge- tight pencilling and lighting! I would wish for a core shadow and reflected light but it's not that important. Also dig the way you painted the cracks on the skin.

    guns1nger- congratulations on getting a wacom! I like the imagery of the insect bursting out of the ground. It seems as if you started drawing from a white surface though, perhaps you might try drawing on a toned surface next time?

    nBt- gouAUUUGGGHHHHHHche! real nice colors and watercolor handling there, and in only 10 minutes o_O

    Gumdrop- I dig your story for the bug, that makes sense. Textures are also great! Must be a tough little bugger to generate so much heat that light is produced as well. o.o

    (I wonder if William B Hand will return for this one. o_O)

    So, I saw the topic and started thinking "the balrog from the Lord of the Rings movie", and it kinda went from there. Had a lot of fun with this one, more than usual, but again the balrog probably doesn't read that well.
