    Thanks scorge! It was my first attempt at proper thumbs in quite a long while, so I'm glad they turned out okay

    First wip, background is just a placeholder for now, as I plan on adding a fair bit of space around it. It's a water-glider type inspired by pond skaters. Crits are welcome.

    Scorge - Looks great. Looks like the new brush set-up is working out. Nice sense of fleshiness. I'd maybe push the scale a bit further, something to really give us a relative sense of scope.

    Thanks a lot for the usefull feedback scorge, much appreciated! i´m not sure if i´ll finish this one, but if i do i´ll tackle those things you mention, is true that the framing isn´t helping to thepresentation of the character. When you say tangents you mean that they are (right leg and arm) sharing the same kind of path or direction right?
    I like your concept a lot but imo the torso part and head could be a lot more dinamic, right now they (torso+head) are describing almost a straight line.I´m trying to imagine that creature walking with the six extremities, and i think it would look a lot more contortionist like. There are some bulky shapes for the shoulders and the hair line, but they are not depicting the move in the spine, neck and head.

    Note: after reading the book "Force: Dynamic Life Drawing for Animators" some time ago, i'm extremely biased to see designs in terms of dinamic and energy, rather than surface representation or anatomy (wich are fundamental things to study and to try to master too imo, and are the complement for dinamics).
    I can´t recommend that book enough to everyone, i read a lot of books and watched a lot of tutorials, but the concepts presented in that book were the biggest and greatest revelation to me (maybe because i was totally unaware of such concepts).
    Ok, talked too much already!

    Cheers

    scorge- thanks for the feedback matey. my background is illustration but i want to broaden my doodling horizons.
    the feedback i get on these forums is really helpfull in doing that. i do seem to be drawing lots of chunky faced beasts with cheesy grins at the mo!
    in your pic i like the way you've dropped the hind toes of the creature beyond the horizon, it makes him look like a real biggun! lookin awesome!

    elephant's stroke- i really like this! he has a childhood nightmare menacing quality about him for me. i feel like he would want to capture me gorg-fraggle style.

    I was thinking of retractable legs, like the snail's eye.

    Gotta try my hand with this one... going to go with this sort of crab/daddy long legs type of critter that's low to the ground, because it always bothers me what do these things eat if they're really high up all the time. So I think this could go both up and down.

    Had some time and thought i would join in.
    The Mountain Mimicry live in areas live in red mountain areas, mostly in the north and despite its size, blend in well with the mountains when it waits for its prey. It mostly hunt Bottle Boars which are extremely fast and don't go fare from its hole/cave.

    (Im thinking about having the eyes lower down then normal as it never needs to look up but still need to make it look/feel right and dont think it does at the moment)

    next steps will be value/some sort of mountain background and then colour.

    Nice works y'all! Lot's of cool looking legs. I remember that guy Tyranx doing some badass giant beasts with lot's of atmosphere. Would be worth checking out for this challenge.

    Scorge- Digging the lighting on yours.

    Working on something myself. A bit rusty but happy to be back at it.

    Electric Goat: Thanks man. I remember competing with Tyranx as well! I was pretty noobish back then and quickly consider him to be one of the guys to emulate in epicness. Along with Mike Corriero, Jakkas, Redehlert, and njoo I quickly learned how good I could potentially be and to this day still look to those guys for inspiration. .
