    Awesome start Rob. Maybe if you had the tail in a curl on the right side of the painting, pointing back towards the serpent? Or moved the canvas down a bit and had it wrapped around the rock.

    Still very rough... But given that I'm just really figuring out ArtRage on my iPad and this is the first time I'm tossing anything on CO, it's a start.

    Concept's an earth based Bolas Spider that hunts by tossing rocks at birds.

    I may jump into this one, but if I do I'm tempted to do elemental dragons. Not terribly original I know, but sometimes old school is the best school. We'll see.

    It's good to see so much interest in a subject. If y'all do make dragons, promise me some bad-ass design!

    I won't go insofar as to forbid doing dragons, I love dragons as much as the next guy, and more than some. What I would like to point out is that it is not "elemental dragons", so try and see what you can do to branch out from that, thing more abstractly than existing creatures given an element. You're not just making elemental creatures, but a creature which itself represents that element. I think it's important to note that your creature, while it must have a consistent form, need not be made from stable materials like flesh and bone.

    Maybe knowing some Greek fauna would help.

    Would it be a motif rather then being completely fire, or water, or earth, or air?

    Thanks for pointing that out Si_Swe, what I had in mind regarding dragon-ish wasn't a firedragon, airdragon, waterdragon and so forth.. but rather pure flame with a head reminiscent of that of a dragon, earth in a form that reads similar to a dragons and so on.

    Firith with your current upper body design the creature looks very humanoid. Perhaps a varied location of the shoulder apparatus, or quantity of varied arms will give it a more beastly appearance?
