LavaFauna Lineup 02 by Stephen-0akley LavaFauna Lineup 02 by Stephen-0akley
I've been fortunate enough to be invited to speak at IFCC 2018 where I'll be giving a 2 hour talk about Creature Design! There are tons of amazing artists who will also be there that you can check out on IFCC's website, as well as buy tickets to the convention here: ifcc-croatia.com/

These are some old concepts from 2011-2012 that I put some a little more love into this past month :)

serious question: do people play this game still on any plattform?

i take it the beasts above are mobs for the monster to hunt for?

They do! On PC it has a consistent ~200 people playing it. Which leaves me pretty happy that its doing better than a bunch of more recent titles for all the struggles it has been through.

They were some really early Ideas :)

Your creatures are always so unique and interesting! My fav here is definitely the middle-right, the anatomy is fantastic and the silhouette is very eye-catching.

He was certainly fun and probably my favorite of the bunch too :) I was less focused on gameplay, and really wanted to make something with nice shapes instead :D

Haha, that's understandable! It was quite a shame that so many interesting creatures got cut from the game (would have been frustratingly fun to have been walking on ice and have those giant ice worms burst out and eat half the team - and now, looking through your gallery some more, I see you designed those too!) but the ones that did make it were all fantastic, and I loved how each one had a unique design that fit its roll in the ecosystem. You seem to have worked on the larger majority of the game's concepts, even the environments? I really admire your art as a whole but find your Evolve-related stuff to be so fascinating, I really envy your design skills and hope to one day match your calibre...might have to do some personal studies of your work if that's ok c:

Totally! We had early proto-types that were... indeed frustrating xD

I did touch on most of the wild-life, and my good friend Nick De Spain, TJ Frame, and Scott Flanders all contributed tons!

Feel free to study my stuff, but I encourage studying nature and all the weird things out there that inspire the most unique designs :)
