    Some quickly scribbly brainstorming to start. I tend to think jungle-cat or snake when I think about stealthy stalkers. Probably going along that route.

    : Another suggestion might be to open your file in Adobe, and take a screenshot (PrintScrn on the keyboard) of it. You could then paste that file in to photoshop, and save it as a jpeg perhaps. Not the most elegant of work arounds, but maybe it'll work.

    Nice work so far guys,

    Penciltipred: Really nice sketches, they're much cleaner than mine ever are I'd have to say that 3 seems a bit generic for a creature design so you're right to stay away from that, 2 is definitely swinging too far to the human side of the scale but I'm unable to tell how 1 stands up I'm afraid, are those 4 legs holding it up? If so maybe adding a slight bit of bulk to them would help, but otherwise a great design

    Some nice sketches by you too Jornum I wanna see how you turn those beasties into metal monstrosities

    Hunter: I have to be honest I'm not ENTIRELY sure what I'm looking at with your image, are you basing it off any kind of creature? The best way to go about making a cool design for these things is to research all manner of creatures and take inspiration from them, even if sometimes they don't exactly fit the brief they can be useful. For instance the Krogans from Mass Effect are based on bats, not the first thing that comes to mind when I think of a hulking reptilian species

    Lege1: A nice start,I will give this advice though, right now although you have dimensions and perspective on your drawing, I can tell you're using them because you've given the feet a good spacing to imply the distance you've also ignored them when it comes to how the feet would be planted on the floor, he seems to be standing on the very tips of his toes and falling forward, try making his feet placed flat and firmly on the ground, the flesh will shape to it. Also with a head and neck that large he'd need a significant counterweight as a tail so something much heavier and/or larger will make the design much more plausible.

    Hope I've been of som help guys

    Anyway quick update from me:

    yes it's still a bit sketchy I know but don't worry I'm working on that now, the human is based off the Sylvok designs I've found online. (The humans who inhabit the Tangle)

    Tchuk: its a little hard to desern your creature, the foreground dude is really mashed in
    with him. seems like a very intresting idea, cant wait to see more.

    First, thanks alot for the links and artwork Tchuk, Amazing works right there!
    Your sketch has real promise so far, I like the perspective and the creature seems to tower threateningly over the character, I'm not sure but so far I read 2 heads on the creature and no left back leg.
    It'll be interesting to see you progress the creature.

    Edward B That is rad! It'll be hard for you to screw this up. Very cool piece already!

    Lege1 take a look at what Jornum did - a bunch of little thumbnails sketches will help you find cool designs and be more loose and creative. I see you've even put in a detailed grid for your perspective... You shouldn't need more than a horizon line and an awareness of you vanishing point. You're hindering the creative spontaneous impulses by locking things down like that.

    And thanks Edward B, I've always been a big fan of the Magic tcg art since I found it so I really wanted to see if we could get more people in to join the fray on this one and get some really good images going I especiallyl ike yours, the only problem I'd have to say with it is right now I'm unsure about the composition or what is going on. at first I had assumed the left hand side to be where his head was not the left (which I realised after a bit of a closer look ) Looks like it could be really really good though

    Just another quick update, really not sure what I'm doing wrong with the colouring but something about it doesn't feel right, might go back a bit and experiment a bit more.

    Oh God, this topic is so nostalgic... Love it, I'm eager to see what comes from this! I love magic and the lore around it, plus those images... *goosebumps*
