Here's some creature design work I did recently for the 
AETHERA campaign setting by Encounter Table Publishing, illustrating several new additions to the Kyton force. These guys are called the Aloadai - a construct of a huge gorilla like Kyton carrying another on it's back with a tumorous psychic brain that controls them both. So much fun on this one! Really harnessed some Doom 3, Dead Space, Hellraiser and even Pacific Rim (Kaiju) inspirations. 

Concepts sketched in pencil and ink - and final painted in Photoshop CC (2015) with my Wacom Intuos pro tablet.
