Crud Sucker

Piece I'm working on for the Mutation Nation challenge on Art Order blog.
EDIT:Decided I needed to try to play down the background critter and switch the sunset to being more of a secondary light. Changed the hind legs. Added the eggs to try to give a reason for the static pose. Tried to bring some super saturated colors onto the head. Cleaned up the background wall. Changed the temperature of the far background. I liked that the human character gave an instant indicator of size but thought it was perhaps too easy to identify with so I changed it to some kind of dino guy so that it's not an oval right there and he snags less attention.

Wonderful glistening lighting.

I'm not sure I understand what the creature has to do with sucking crud though. :P

Damn that's amazing. I really like the little bits of blue you worked in to the...skin...shell...thing. It's a nice subtle way of adding light.

The title makes the picture, really :)
Nice work on the design and the background. The bit of background that's more in the foreground... I mean the wall etc, could use a bit more detail though.
As for the creature design I love the slimy look. The scaling on his legs seems a bit strange, though.
But nice work anyway!
