Creature sketches.

The big headed guy eats sheep and excretes sweaters. As for the long legged dragon dude, he's a species prototype for the Aerie. A strain of wyrms that evolved to be runners rather than slithery swimmers.

Do u combine two creatures together by looking at pictures
of them and fitting bits and pieces or do u just
think of the designs and....BAM....awesome drawing?

Depends on what I'm trying to accomplish and whether or not I have a clear idea. Reference is always good whether or not you're creating an animal combo creature. I could be creating something completely abstract but still find a quick anatomy ref useful.

For the most part, if I want an animal combo I would of course find reference of the animals I'm thinking of. But for these guys and for a lot of my drawings I just doodle, create thumbnails, and refine. The guy on the top of the page is a good example of that, he started out as scribbled abstract shapes. I looked for a creature within those shapes and then refined it into big mouth up there. The guy on the bottom however I had a plan for, I did small thumbnail drawings to try and get my idea down on paper, then took one of those that I liked and refined it.

Other times, if I do know exactly what I want to draw, I do just draw it in one go. But a creature design can always be made better with reiterations.

Sounds very organized and interesting. I forgot to mention, that drawing you did is amazing. I could never draw like that. Looking forward to seeing more.

But I'm sure you could given time, you can draw most anything with the right amount of practice.

Nice! Were these done digitally, if so on what program?

No, they're graphite drawings. The colour was added in photoshop.
