Muscle and Bone Car by Viergacht Muscle and Bone Car by Viergacht
This has been my warm-up painting for a few days now, I decided to stop picking at it and just upload.

It was inspired by this really cool painting I'd favved here on DA of a car/leopard hybrid, which sadly has since disappeared and I can't remember the artist's name (can anyone help?). I thought it would be fun to do something in that style, since it's a theme I groove on but almost never paint, mainly because I'm not very skilled at inorganic things. I'd like to do more living metal creature machines some time.

Very cool painting, I wonder, if you have seen the movie called "The car" from 1977? At first I though it was a fan art for it (-:

Lmao I'm honestly like the icon 24/7 whether it's in joy or panic


this actually stunned me though

I was browsing through car pictures and was like "WAIT-... WAIT, WOAH WOW HOLY FLIPS. "

Nope - but I love their work! The one I was thinking of was very car-shaped.

I absolutely love this! My passion for monsters and cars mixed into one as an exciting new creature I'd never even thought of before. And it looks amazing! The classics of the muscle era with all their sharp chrome are perfect for these kinds of creatures. Mimicry at its finest, sometimes! I wonder if it's omnivorous or pure carnivore.... Either way, surely don't want to run into this beast in a dark alley!

Damn that looks badass. And it does perfectly what I tried to create but failed at... sobs
It also makes me think of the movie Christine, where the car would murder people.

I love the concept of the inanimate and the animates. This is a great execution and the signature reminds me the seventies with big daddy roth and the monster car mash-ups that were popular in my youth.

Nice!
No gas stations needed, it hunts its own fuel.
Kinda feels like it would be right at home in the Brütal Legend game, with someone taking a ride across the lands, accompanied by the sound of heavy metal.

I think you could probably get in, but then it would digest you.

Oh I dig this! I always love to see people's takes on machine/creature mixes.

The artist I think you're thinking of is TechnoForTomcats, they've sadly left and don't draw anymore.

I can't find the sketch but I think I know exactly which one, I see it in my mind's eye but I can't find it online. Was it in this style? www.technofortomcats.net/obscu…

They've since moved here: kyuofcosmic.tumblr.com/ if you'd like to ask them directly, maybe they'll post that piece for you. :)

That doesn't look quite like what I recall, but I haven't given up hope it'll pop up somewhere.

And hm! Well the other two artists I can think of off the top of my head are:

metalik-fairy.deviantart.com/a…

and 

manticoress.deviantart.com/art…

There may be others, the concept itself has been around for a while (one of the commentators mentioned Ed Roth, that's one of the people that really got this stuff going,) but those are the people I recall seeing before!
