New Monster concept... ORTHO!
Here's a monster I concepted for a friend/co-worker of mine who is going to model and texture it.
Too lazy to do a "final" looking version of the back view, but its not really neccessary for our purposes....

Nice Concepts, strange feet for sure but very cool... and nicely rendered

Really nice creature design. The larger pictures are great so that we can enjoy the level of detail you put into your creature. The only thing I can crit is the back feet on the unfinished back shot, they don't look like they are resting on the ground. I'm not sure if this is true or not, but if this creature walks on all fours, maybe the ability to stand as well, but shouldn't his thumb be placed a bit back some more? I can't see how he can support himself with all his fingers infront. Aren't monkey thumbs able to support more of the back of the hand? I am not sure on this though, just a thought. Other than that really really nit picky thing, I think this is great.

nice textures in this and great details at the hands and feet! the rendering of the surface details is very strong.
one suggestion, I think you need some more space between his pelvis and his ribcage, lengthen him a bit. maybe look at a greyhound, they have this deep narrow chest that curves in tight to the spine at the abdomen, very whip-like and muscular.
so, um, has Don Cheadle taken a break from acting to approve monster designs?

It looks exactly like the earth demon in Shadow Hearts 2
The feet look odd in the side angle, even giving you the benifit of the doubt and assuming his midpace in a walk or something, at least one of the feet should be flat to the ground.

Great post, thx for including all the detail shots. I really like the way you intergrated the green armor like back with the fleshy body. This looks like you painted over a pen line drawing, which is a little different then how you normally work, did you? I also really like the fact that I'm not sure if this creature is good or evil, I often find the most interesting creatures/characters to be the ones your not sure about, Raymurok could be my best friend or he could rip my face off, and that leaves me wanting to know more about him. I should take him out for a beer to get on his good side.Also I'd love to see the model when it is complete. When starting a design do you take into condsideration the # of polys that are going to be used on the model, and if so do you find that limiting for your creativity? I'm sure a player avatar in a game gets a higher poly count then the low level mob in the newbie zone.Peter Reed

Awesome piece! nice detail shots...especially the head. I think it would be cool if you gave him some nasty teeth.

hey sean i love this piece man. i love your style. i always look forward to pieces from you. only one crit though. The upper bodyily anatomy conflicts to much with the hands and feet. from the looks of it this animal would have its fleshy hands and feet torn apart from its weight and running. maybe somesort of colored hide on the soles of the feet.like calissed and rough skin. maybe that black rough skin on dogs paws. and since it looks like its not a biped but runs on all fours i would invert the joints. maybe. these are just opinions and opinions are cheap.lol. besides that man buetiful work and i cant wait to see some more sean murray. ;p
ps(you work with marc so tell him to start posting again.lol.)

I really enjoy first pg, bottom right image... has a lot of personality...have to agree with blue puppy on the feet and hands, moving some of that texture around the creature would help bring the design together even more so. I like how you have carried the circular elements with the eyes and the armor, maybe instead of just straight spikes replicate those cool plates on it's back Is this creature it's own master or is it bieng led by anouther?

I like the detail. But I think you need to develop the character more as well as the anatomy.hellllooo
