another day, another creature....this one eats sharks btw...
originally I was going to paint a supplementary illustration to go with this concept painting, but it just wasn't working out, so "F" it no illustration....

Those last 2 studies are looking awesome. For the first one, I really like how you got in the texture and shapes of the rock and waves crashing, but I personally find there is too much black :/ I feel like on the side with the shadow would have a few more highlights on it as well,seeing as it's still bright outside and it won't be that dark. I'd suggest using more colour variety throughout and even in the reflections of the water. Water's got some green in it sometimes too, especially on the surface
As for the second one, I like it a lot more. I like the use of colour, a lot less black which is good I'm loving the small highlights for the trees. You managed to get the slopes pretty awesomely too. Looking good, I like it!
And as for the COW, as I told you earlier, I really love it! Awesome stuff rob, cool sb. Keep it up =D

Great creatures! Rob, that was a pretty crazy round with the voting! We almost had 3 winners you know?
Some nice concepts in these last posts. I'm not sure, but you seem to be using the blacks for creating silhouettes. Careful though when you start rendering; pure blacks rarely actually happen, even in the shadows.
I've noticed you handle the feet of your creatures really well. They're mostly functional and make sense. I often end up going easy on them.. but they deserve attention.
Nice work, see you at the C.o.W!

Anthis: Thanks, man! Yeah I know very close, personally I would've preferred three winners, but I can't be to upset and well there's a new round every week. And besides the round was pretty close to having 4 winners as well since third place was two points behind first.
An update in the world of me!
My first ever artblog, Building-A-Legacy (link also available in my signature) is now up and running! Currently lacking content because of it's youth it will grow to become, what I hope, is a gallery of art that many will enjoy! Man I'm hyping this up like people care, lol. But self promotion is the best way to get your name out there!
and another thing that is off topic, I have decided to withdraw my current entry to cow and start anew one, not really happy with the current progess of the creature I chose so starting fresh is the best way to get myself back into the groove of things, plus it was taking way to long anyways...despite being mostly rendered from the silhouette. I do have a few other ideas in mind so stay tuned...or don't, your choice! btw Happy New Year people! May 2012 be welcomed warmly and 2011 be remembered charitably...if thats a word :/

Veshkau: Thanks, dude!
Latest Cow piece, decided half way through that, despite all the thumbs I made, I would come up with different. Topic was freestyle, which always makes it harder when you can design whatever you want, so I picked a subject, Desert Predator and ran with it. Fairly pleased with the outcome, scales may need a bit a of tweaking, but I may never get to it so I'll just leave as is.
