    Drawrings of Creatures and Such!

    Welcome All!
    My name is Robert Powell! South African born, Canadian raised digital artist looking to improve my skills and knowledge in the area of concept art and illustration. I specialize in creature design, above all, mainly due to my interests in creatures, animals, aliens, dinosaurs, dragons, monsters, of all shapes and sizes ever since I was very young. However I do occasionally feel rebellious and have a go at some characters and environments when I'm in the mood. Any sort of helpful advice is welcomed, do not feel shy to leave any constructive criticisms or comments!

    Also if you haven't yet, join us over at Creature of the Week and design your own beasties!!

    Go to last page for latest updates, and more recent and improved works that don't suck!
    I'm serious! Do Not scroll down!!! YOUR EYES WILL BLEED!!

    another character I drew a while back...I think I drew the head and body separate for some reason...I think so I could draw a lttle more detail on her head, seeing as the body was a little bit small

    Crits and suggestions are encouraged here! So if you don't mind I would appreciate a little insight thnx!

    Here is a more recent Wip I'm working on...I'm no where near finished but I decided to show my progress and hopefully get some useful feedback on it...

    1-Started of experimenting with silhouttes and was inspired by this one (what do you see, I see a few things but what interested me was this old alien face)
    2-Just quickly went over with black (i guess to expand on the silhouette to help me see the character more)
    3-Painted in a quick abtract BG...looks like crap, but that's what layers are for, I can change it later
    4-Painted the face and layed in some base colours...still lots to do....

    As you say, there is a lot of improvement from your earliest stuff to now, well done! I would recommend putting some time in studying perspective, this will help give more volume to your designs.

    I like the fish painting in particular, nice work there. Keep it up!

    @DmnSpawn: Thnx

    @Lightpunk: Yeah, perspective is one of the many things I need to study.The fis was fun te paint, If only I spent a little more time on it, it would probably look a lot better, but it was for more experimenting with texture and brshes...

    Here are a few of my best pieces, both tadtonal and digital. Even thugh they are some of my best, it doesn't imply that they are flawless. Still lots of room for improvement.
    I think I need to start doing some more pencil drawings soon, been caught up in digital painting, and haven't really drawn on paper,other than just sketches in a sketchbook.
    Let me know what you think. Any commets, crits, and suggstions are always welcome.

    And here are a few other digital works I've done...Le m know what you think

    The first 2 took me somewhere between an hour to 2 hours, I was experimenting with making brushes, made a stroke with that brush, then rendered the stroke to make a design

    looking good man. i especially like the mecapede quickie and that skeletal vulture dragon 'ridley'. That blue and gold macaw is also amazing. however, i was the most impressed by that first figure study you posted - it looks like it should be in a textbook, very nice. Your traditional stuff have some very nice linework and style to them, something dynamic, that I'd like to see creep into your digital stuff more as well. keep up the good work and i'll see you around in the CoWs!
