[ Studying some reference photos of both rhinoceroses and arachnids will likely increase your levels of fascination. ]
Creature • FASCINATING BEAST SHARES ATTRIBUTES OF BOTH RHINO AND ARACHNID
I need to do more of these to get better at quick roughs, so I limited myself to an hour total for research, design and the sketch.
I figured everyone would be doing spiders, but scorpions are arachnids too, sooo... I will be using a much smaller brush next time for the base sketch.
This is mine. no photoshop this time. I thought the sketch was worth posting anyhow. Really like the idea behind yours anthis. I should have pushed mine more, alas. Selah.
Anthis - That is just spot-on. Great job!
This little drawing didn't come close to my original hopes, but I like the basic design anyway. Maybe I'll do a nice version later... [ *rubs chin stubble* ]

Welp, I went ahead and made a more finished one, using a Micronฎ pen and Prismacolorsฎ. I maybe lost some of the things I liked about the original (very tiny) drawing, but oh well -- anyways, some of the details are nice, I think. Took a while whilst watching [Adult Swim].
HOLY CRAP!!!! This is some awesome stuff! Anthis, as always, your sketch rocks. You so pwn the color picker. W.B.H.-Nice to see you posting in the DSG lately. That's done with Prismacolor, what? Markers? How do you blend so well. I'd love to read a tut on your techniques with ink (those pumpkin heads a while back really blew me away)!
I worked on my DSG entry forever last night. Then my final blending flattened the hell out of it. So I'll try to pop it back out again after work and post in the morning. By then the topic will be dying
pleased with this concept, but not the angle/view. any sujestions for creature perspectives guys? thanks
Hello everyone, I'm new here; hoping to push my art with your help!
When I think Rhino Arachnid I immediately think horns, armor, multiple eyes and legs. This was a lot of fun to do since I find Rhinos to be really interesting and super cool looking animals, and I'm arachnophobic as well!
Gosh, amazing pictures you guys. Especially loving those bulky ones
skyline: Try a profile angle or 3/4
Kasei: Loving your concept!
ericrgauthier I love its head, good design!
Anthis and William: You guys nailed it!
This is mine, it is more like a spider still, but it have thick armor and it rams!
I think it still needs some anatomical modification, it don't looks like it can ram with front and back legs proportion like that. What do you think?
absolutely beautiful creatures guys. As always absolutely stunned by the quality.
Is bringing sexy back, well I've kept the receipt and i've hardly used it.
Greetings fellow conceptual enthusiasts! I have been a long time stalker of this site, but never had the will to join; that obviously has changed. IVE MADE IT KASEY!
I was originally going to try and do something sophisticated with a whip spider and one of the interestingly crinkly asian rhino species.
However, I'm going to delay that on the basis that I'm tired and in a bit of a silly mood, and thus you can all make do with this monstrocity until I get round to approaching this properly tomorrow.
Had fun and learned a lot.
What's a good canvas size for these?
this was very rushed, it was becoming too ambitious. pencil sketch & ps color sketch:
I tried to post this a while ago, but it didn't work :/
[ MOD EDIT: The first time you posted it, it showed up just fine. It's still there. I have been deleting your subsequent duplicate posts. ]
