I figured this would be the place to put it. My thesis project was about creature development, so the artwork was not as detailed as i had hoped, I'm relativley new to digi-coloring.
Let me know what you peeps think. See yall's in Austin...
I did short descriptions for each, sorry about the quality
I know the syntax for the Latin and Greek is crap, it was just for kicks. I'll try to post soon
these are great! very clean renderings, and beliveable designs.
Thease are fantastic!. They seem so belivable. Nice colors also. You must post more monsters!
great job. i like 'em alot man.-c36
Those are real nice. Really. Nice.
As an insect and arachnid hobbyist and enthusiaste I would have to say the Apatelosis Hoplites is utterly amazing.
great work, steak!
congrats on such a great set of works...your love of the art shines through!

i like em, the designs are definitely your own.
alti: thankyou. that's very good to hear.
JoshuA:thanks! believability was a key issue for me.
Montross: thanks dude. I'll post some more soon (as i make em' that is) I'll post the sketches in my daily sketchbook thread.
el coro: damn. that's awesome to hear from you. thankyou. lookin' forward to Austin.
ozan: thanks man. your work is great, I just checked it out.
SaIiLdVaEnR: A. Hoplites was the last one I did. I had the rough concept but it really came together when I studied the entymology collection at the University. i was lucky enough to have the collector let me take the specimens out and photo them from different angles. I'll post my pics in the reference section soon.
maldrin: thanks! your tag line is the shit by the way. "17 days! were not gonna last 17 hours, with those things crawlin' around.."
thanks guys, your comments mean alot to me. I'm getting serious about going into this industry having just graduated from design school. Now I gotsta' go draw some bots.
I read all the creature descriptions, and I noticed that on A. Hoplites, you changed to calling it A. Spinosa about halfway through. Just thought you should know.
Other than that, I think the work is very well developed and nicely rendered. The coloring is a little flat, but not bad by any means. You could add some more definition to the structures on your creatures by adding highlights and reflected light, though.
I intend to live forever - so far so good
I totally dig these and the explanations of them. Keep up the concepts hoss!
