War Beast Sketch by VegasMike War Beast Sketch by VegasMike
I am revisiting the war beast idea...I imagine this as a bull like warthog with a rider and armor. The idea being a bulldozer, tank like charging animal with protruding blades to sever foes along the way. I may color this up...

An example of skillful creature design, War Beast Sketch by ~VegasMike seems like a page from an ancient book.

Very awesome art I have to ask, what kind of pencil(s) and paper did you do this on?

Thats Hella cool. If you like the tank look, you may like the first Zelda GCN boss.

another brilliant concept... also really like the colored, but it seems a bit dark and loses a lot of detail, particularly on the right (my right) leg

certainly not something i'd want to meet in battle, but how cool would it be to ride one...

all in all, brilliant concept, wonderful work, a perfect showcase of your imagination and skills, just awesome
:+fav:

peace

Beautiful detail. Real strength portrayed in the beasts pose :+fav: My preference is as it is, rather than coloured, although it may benefit from more definition and tone in the linework. Great piece.
