    btw Si_Swe this should be round 268, not 269...

    Trying to make mine fierce. I need to make it look lean and faster looking.

    Mmm. it does not at all say undead to me.
    Also, I kind of feel like it's too generic, too much regular feline.
    Also there's hardly any depth in the image.
    I would not say it sucks monkeyballs however. Just...mixed feelings about it.
    that's completely fine man!
    Just get the work done and gain some pen mileage y'know?
    And as long as you learn eventually, look up Gourney for color, I mean there is an endless amount of resources.
    there isn't much contrast on your beast and darkening areas and making other areas lighter would help. also develope the ground it is standing on, and leave the other B/G less detailed. try and bring out a focal point. just look at your entry from far away and see what you like and don't like.
    But I like this, it's got heart. Keep it up dude just keep trying and learning.

    Little facetoid about Displacer Beasts is that they are always 3 feet 'displaced' from where normal eyes see them. It is damn near impossible to hit one, let alone kill it.

    Beholders and Displacer eh CA.org?... alright CA.org..... alllriiightt

    here's one of the sketches l've done so far. gonna make that back bit a shredded coat,cause having a simple skeleton seems a bit cliche. not 100% on it. any ideas?

    :EDIT: changed a few things around, still not too sure what to do with its ass, having a peeled back coat didn't fit in too well with the front.

    Went for something different with the forelimbs, making them work like praying mantis, i dunno, seems cool in a sort of 'l'mma assassin bro!' sorta way

    Maybe not just a shredded coat but it skinned itself?

    Rob Powell, actually it is round 269. I messed up with the counting about 7 rounds ago, so our "round ending in '66" tradition was actually on round '67 since I messed up and we had 2 round of 262. I'm correcting the numbers now, to account for that.

    Ink doodle I threw together this afternoon! I don't know if I'll take it much farther than this. Didn't really add anything new to the concept, besides those Thylacosmilus-type tooth flanges. 'Twas fun!

    Rob Powell: great recources and cool sketch, now make it awesome
    Sporus: thanks dude, I'll keep it in mind.
    PlasmaErnst: thanks dude! Lightsources are killing me!
    But I'll see if I can incorporate some.

    update: I changed the eye, some contrast, some more bare flesh...
    I just realized a displacer beast actually has a double set of front legs, instead of mine, which has a double set of hindlegs.. lol. Maybe I'll fix that. Dunno yet.

    I'll crit/comment tomorrow. Have at it, people!
