Here's a finished version of my previous painting. We see a hiker girl that wandered into what seems like a moving wal from a distancel, that when she approached turned out to be a river. W may just guess, what she thinks now - will she be pulled into water, when she touches it? Will it push her away?
It could be an illustration for a book or a cover for one. I think it's suitable for this contest.
The consequences of the apocalypse led to mutation of people, need for dwelling in places that move on water. Endless War and the struggle for supremacy cause continual population decline. Stockphoto: [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] [link]
Another behemoth concept based on a thumbnail sketch. This took so long to get anywhere on because of my accursed addiction to Mass Effect. And then of course my subsequent Mass Effect withdrawal after finishing the last game. Now I must paint fan-art, ugh and I have so many other things to do already.
I got the idea for the blue head by looking at photos of rhinos in different lighting conditions, the particular image I was thinking of had intensely blue shadows. I didn't want that particular kind of lighting as I still wanted detailing in the head to be distinguishable, so he's blue skinned instead. Perhaps it confuses predators by breaking up his shape.
Other info: Fatty deposits atop the neck for food/water shortages. Has an obscenely long tongue as its primary mode of food consumption. Strange tusks are used to tear up the ground, trees, other behemoths, whatever it wants. Is twice the height of an african elephant, if it was standing in a forest it's legs could be mistaken for tree trunks.
So I've been breaking out of my comfort zone a lot this semester. Oil painting, editorial illustration, comics, poster design, my entire media class... A lot of things I'm not used to doing. I've also been working on simplifying my compositions, using more large graphic shapes and better use of space. And while a lot of that hasnt been put up here (yet at least), I definitely feel I'm learning a lot from it. But every now and then, I just need to do something that is completely and entirely....me.
And thus, this painting. Epic fantasy. Golden lighting. Jagged rock formations. Clouds in abundance. Hey, cant knock me for being inconsistent, right? It started out as a thumbnail for a Way of Kings book cover (I ended up doing Mistborn instead), but I finished it out in my free time a little differently.
I will also be submitting this toward the Train Your Brain Contest. c:
Well shit, more I worked on this more i felt bad about it. Sure he wasn't stable in the sketch... i tried to fix that... somehow, cant recall how(real good). But oh well, can't say I learned much on this one. But I want to draw all them primarchs.. Biting more then I can chew kinda thing.
Anyways, behold Leman Russ, the Wolf King. Biggest badass in the astrates. Now that is arguable I know. BUT! My opinion of the savage is faltering, lately I've been burning through some wh30k books, and currently im on Thousand Sons. Must say, that I rather respect Magnus more. For Wolves are the best in the field of slaying, and just that, they are an unstoppable genocidal machine but I rather prefer the Thousand Sons. For their search of knowledge suits me more then pure close minded genocide.
I'll accept all friend resquests on FACEBOOK: [link]

GoriLion, el poder de un gorila y el peligro de un león en una sola criatura.
Esta es la segunda transformación de MonkeyLion, es un diseño personal, pero con esto, me decidí a presentar en el concurso, porque no sé si realmente quiero un personaje con diferentes transformaciones en mi historia. Deseo que te guste.
