Gargoyle Portrait

This is a little portrait that I made a few weeks ago and never ended up posting. I’ve been working on a larger illustration involving lots of clouds and some fire, but since it isn’t finished I thought I ought to post this instead! He’s based on the graphite portrait I did a little while back. 

Hope you like it!

A new full creature illustration. I’m looking forward to spending a bit more time and effort creating new works that explore my imagined creatures a little further than the simple portraits. I had a really good time working through all the little details on this. 
Hope ya dig!

I am taking a break from painting imagined birds for a bit and instead taking a stab at painting imagined rodents. He isn’t too complex colour wise, but I was pleased with the textures and his silhouette. He’s kinda creepy cute.

I was really happy with the last bird portrait I did a few days ago that I wanted to see what else I could come up with. I think this would be a fun little ongoing series that would help me develop my digital painting chops and also experiment with a bunch of colour, lighting, and texture. 
This guy is called the Cordyceps Turaco, as his feathers and eye formations are based on different types of cordyceps mushroom.

I am trying to be a little less precious when it comes to painting, although loosening up seems to be something I just can’t get into (silly rigid brainbox). This guy was based on a super quick sketch I did at work. I always find it really fun to take a super squiggly doodle to completion. 

Hope ya dig!

So after a 6 week hiatus I am back and able to post again! I have been working on an NDA indie video game project doing visual development and concept art. It’s been a load of fun (and a ton of hard work) but unfortunately I won’t be able to post any of that work until the official announcement of the game. (so stay tuned folks!)
Anywhoo, I have been wanting to get into a bit of creature design recently, so this piece marks my first step into the world of weird and wonderful made up animals. 
I imagine he makes a lot of snuffling and grunting sounds as he searches around for food. The rock like horns and spines would act as both protection and a display of dominance.
