    Snotnose! -Method

    Hey guys

    Just a small illustration that I just finished.
    It took me approx 1 ½ hours of work in total ;P

    Now, rip it to shreds ;P

    Cheers!

    Are those ribs or gills on the sidr of its body?

    Its legs would probably note support its upper body well if it stood on its two paws

    and no ears?

    Other than those, cool drawing. But what the heck is it?

    zwarrior: Hey man, and thanks for dropping by

    The things on the side of its body were meant to be ribs at first, but after a while I changed them into extra oxygen-intakes
    They give the monster better stamina

    I don't quite understand your second criticism.
    Did you mean that it looks like it's floating?

    And about the ears... originally, it had a "thingy" on its head which would pick up vibrations in the air around it, and since it was an external organ it would be very sensitive, and thus give the creature better hearing
    Though when I decided to remake parts of the head, I forgot to add the ears, and I didn't notice that until I already had rendered the whole thing.
    So, instead of drawing some ears, I just left it at that

    Let's just call it a rendering-study

    I really have to start thinking more when I'm drawing, or so it seems
    Thanks for the crits

    Oh, and it's a monster, obviously <_<

    Definitely like the mane and the head, and the shading's pretty smooth. But the rest of the body seems awkward. The waist is very narrow, and the shoulders are up pretty high; I imagine walking is a bit difficult (and puts too much strain on the neck and head). Also, those knees are massive, I can't imagine he has much range of motion there.

    The concept's pretty cool but the dude has really awkward anatomy... His pose adds to the hyena-like look, without any of the functionality. The uber-high shoulders are the most confusing part, because it gives the creature a massive chest, and not in a good way. How would he even be able to lay down?

    Nice shading, though, just take the things noted above when designing another creature, and try to give him a more natural-looking stance in the picture.

    yeah there is something odd aboutthe shoulders and hips. perhaps if you think aboutthe bone articulation in these spots you will be able to clarify the anatomy

    I would alos like something to give a sense of scale. is this thing big as a house or small as mouse?

    I think it would look better with bigger rear feet, they look off being that small now, possibly bigger calves too.


    It reminds me of a warthog, pretty cool.

    Neville Page Fantasy Wildebeast maybe???

    but the main thing is the thick outline and you have put alot of muscle on the legs but nothing to join them to the body?
    The shading is nice and you can always get ref imags from safari photos etc

    Hey again guys, and thanks a lot for all the good crits Much appreciated.
    I guess that my main issue is that I don't really think enough when drawing
    Instead of just drawing stuff that I think "would look cool", I should draw stuff that "works AND looks cool"

    Animal anatomy( or any anatomy for that matter ) is not my forte, but lots of practise and hopefully understanding will hopefully make it better ;D

    Anyway, I'll go put on my thinking cap and study some anatomy

    Ciao!

    Hehe, I like his teeth because one of them is chipped. It's a cute touch!

    What kind of gestural drawings do you put down before you go in with details and shading?

    When you go somewhere good, take me with you!
