Monster Portrait 3 by larkie Monster Portrait 3 by larkie
Painted in photoshop. Some phototextures were used, but most of what you see was painted, once more :D

Just practice ;)

I love this, Gigeresque, Dune-esque (I don't know if you've ever read Dune, specifically the later novels, but this very much reminds me of what Leto, God Emperor of Dune would've looked like :D), this is all painting and textures? Looks to me like it could even be real media.

Awsome work. I love how you merge textures with your painting skills, it gives a very graphic look. Keep up the good work man.

First thing that came to my mind... man that thing would smell atrocious if it was real. I love the empty eye socket with te grin, they match eachother perfectly.

Wow, awesome job painting this. This is a very cool piece. I like how it looks painted but looks like a photograph portrait, the graininess I think helps with that look. Great details all around, especially on the "face" region. While this creature looks happy and not that scary, I can imagine that this is a very bad thing indeed, as if it were to crack the smile a little wider it'd show a row of razor sharp teeth waiting to devour you, and that the bone structure lets it expand it's jaw like a snake to be able to swallow you whole. Haha, it also kinda looks like a painted fist & arm making a shape of a face & creature, but that's just me. Great for just practice, I can't wait till you bust out the full blown pieces.
