it's based on a little known character called "the black mask", who's upbringing was almost identical to bruce wayne's, yet instead of learning to take control of his feelings and help. Black mask, took it on himself to strike fear into others in another method, bulling and gangs. the black mask plans to unite both the russians and Salvatore Maroni's gang into one under his control.

Hey great stuff, I love your last piece. Your understanding of color is great.
About the other one, the skull guy, I didn't like that much, the body looks weird. I think you should have drawn a spatter in his pants close to his shoes (as his arms are to short to grab his johnson, I though that it would have been a nice detail) --I'm just kidding.
Your SB is great.
I just looked through your SB from the first page - My brain exploded with inspiration somewhere half way - Damn, some of you guys have such exciting sketchbooks! Can I ask how long the demon in black and white on the second page took, post 34. Cheers

Reason: wrong page
just woke up, had some painter software issues, had to full reinstall the program, did some faces to test it...
not sure if vista is my issue or what but in painter when im like half an inch off the surface my "brush ghost"/cursor lags from position to position, it's a issue that is going to kill my process but it's noticeable enough to be annoying... guess ill have to get used to it.
This last creature is solid. The weight of his upper body is really coming through, and maybe could be even stronger if you showed that weight pressing down onto its front feet. The texture is really working well for you too. It feels studied, not just random. Good work.
awesome work on the last one, I have followed this thread for a long time but have never felt I had anything useful to say...
Anyways it might be too late to change this but the torso seems to short... but the texturing is awesome on it and the way you incorporated human-ish muscles into it is neat nice stuff in here overall I miss the traditional mediums though...
I fixed this guy up some more. Hope the process will clear up SOME of how i go about making a creature from my head.
Basically start simple and loose enough so you can play from your randomness... and after playing for a bit.. tighten it up into something focus'd.
"I'm moving to Louisiana this week. This guy will be my protector from all ill-will. Although he does not have thumbs to help me carry boxes, he can stab people in the face... Pretty helpful in the right types of situations!"
always been a fan of your creatures , man. but wow your creature concepts jumped to a whole new level since I last checked here.
specially love the sharkguys and that last two. sexy skintexture. on the fourlegged critter his left front leg doesn't look like its connected to the body though. might be just a bit too straight up.
anyway you made me try creatures again today so keep doing these.
