    space myth:copperhead

    39 dogs of war : a sketchbook ; July 21st

    sketches of a character from a series ive created, titled space myth.

    the copperhead is a monster that roams the copper mining wastes on the tyairc-lun belt of asteroid moons. the stories tell of a young and ruthless prince who exploited his enslaved workforce to mine these highly unstable faux space bodies. many died due to the environment as well as the apalling living conditions, whilst the prince grew more and more wealthy. during one of his tours of the mines, his ship was brought down by rebellious slaves and his entourage slaughtered. him they left barely alive to torture him till his mind grew dark and twisted. when he finally was flung to his death in one of the oldest and disused pits, he swore upon dark and terrible names, that their lives belonged to him alone till the passing of all memory.

    here the stories differ. some say 14 and other 5, 9 and 7. still, he returned terrible and misshapened; some say only a mangled head wrought with steel contraptions, others a lumbering humanoid. but they agreed upon this: he claimed all life on the mines along the tyairc-lun.

    today, the belt is much stabler than it has ever been, though traders and patrols refuse to land there unless confronted with dire circumstance. the old mariners say the place smells of death and feels like cold iron upon the heart, the slow winds seem to carry calls of suffering that distract and confuse. those who have been upon describe how hard it is to attempt lift off after landing, citing extended and escalating bouts ofdiscomfort, disorientation and lack of concentration.

    ...to be continued...

    Myuhyak Ancestral Avenger

    39 dogs of war : a sketchbook ; July 21st

    The Myuhyaks are jungle dwelling humanoids. Subsisting on hunting and gathering, the Myuhyaks are nomadic, wandering the endless green. Natives of this great expanse of tropical woodland, their roots have been traced to the age of creation itself. The Myuhyaks organise themselves into gatherings(Mahtun).

    The average lifespan of a Myuhyak 175 years with maturity at 50 years. When the cheif of a gathering passes on, the gathering elects a new chief and he/she leads the gathering in a ritual to convey the spirit of previous chief to the quiet plains of the Myuhyak afterlife(The Anmyuh). The body is washed and adorned with its ceremonial wear, then the new chief breaks open the skull of the old at the forehead to the chants and wails of the gathering. The body is then rolled about in the earth and finally place in a sack of the same earth, sewn and burnt; once agin to the songs that would guide the newly born ancestral spirit.

    In times of peril, the Myuhyak stage a great dance to call forth their ancestors to protect them. The spirits of their ancestors is manifested in great hulking humanoid with a head of prodigious size; that spit fire and shake the earth with his footfalls. This creature they name the avenger, the fire from Anmyuh. The Myuhyak word is : Ashanh-tuma


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------

    Quick creature concept. Im trying to get one out every two or three days. Might develop some further as I go along.

    As always there is much to learn CRIT ME!

    Cool creatures!
    Maybe start with already existing animals. And add some features or change a bit their general shape.
    You can do plenty of things on them, try and you'll see

    I think the hollow eye sploding teefed goblins are pretty cool, but i definately agree with recursive_end's comment about doing animals and changing features here and there.

    39 dogs of war : a sketchbook ; July 21st

    thanks for all the crits and comments and compliments, I really appreciate 'em.
    tried to add some shading this time...well emphasis on the word tried

    dudes...its darn hard to find some live animals here..well the zoo is miles away and im saving my money for school so its picture reference for me. dang...but no fears some warped animal inspired creature concepts real soon!

    p.s. apologies for the tilt in the picture, one leg bailed on me

    I really like your anatomy studies. Everytime I go to the zoo the damn animals hide where I can't see them...I think it's a conspiracy...or just me. I end up having 2 draw from pics culled from the web. Your charcter designs are pretty haunting especialy the disembodied goblin/orc. The stories behind the creations are a nice touch too. For me it pulls you deeper into the drawing if that makes sense. Please sir I want more. Y'know allthough that quote is from Oliver it ranks up there with the scarest lines of all time. Keep the war doggies rollin'.

    Hey, man. Awesome studies you got going on there. Where did you get your refs for your leg studies? I have a couple pirintouts of the human muscle system, but it's not that great. Keep 'em coming, looking forward to seeing your animal stuff.

    Dr. Paul Richer : Artistic Anatomy (Watson-Guptill press)
    Andrew Loomis : Figure Drawing for all its Worth (Viking press)
    Sarah Simblet : Anatomy for the Artist (DK press)
    Eliot Goldfinger: Anatomy for the Artist(?)

    mystic merchant and his earth djinn sidekick! (WIP)

    the old peddler flashes you a lopsided grin and offers you a "draught of youth". Its packaged in a strangely shaped jar with a steel frame and handle. The craftwork on it, although exquisite, gives of an air of ridicule and beside the old peddler, it even looks normal. Now, also beside the peddler is an enormous earth djinn, with forearms the size of tree branches. As the peddler proffers you the jar, the djinn crosses his arms and a deep rumbling sounds as it grunts and looks askance at the peddler; you feel the grunt sounded like a-

    hah...jackass...

    in the grunt language of djinns.

    Inking the study isn't a bad idea..it certainly gets you to be more careful with ur lines. I think you could get more tonal variety out of your pen no? It seems flattened compared to the pencil version.
