You used an interesting technique, I like a lot the wood rendering. My advice: try to keep the style compact, I see the eyes and the mouth of the beast look like they don't fully belong to the picture :)

neat, what animals is this a hybrid of? looks like a little bit of lion around the mouth, and what else?


ditto on what csnyder said about the background
xHaStex's avatar
thankyou kindly....
ok....we got wolf/dog....eagle(?) claw....lizard claw and skin....and a hidden ingrediant....even though the face is more dogg based....various parts where based on a jaguar....hopefully this could explain the lion-ey feel....

Th texture on the scaled arm looks great, was that ohne of your custom brushes?
xHaStex's avatar
cheerz d00d3....
mixture of snake skin overlayed, a texture brush made from a ' scanned pine-comb ' and some dodge layer work over the top....i think thats all i used....oh and further down the hand a multyplied layer of some rocks i think....
i always use a ragged hard round for basic shape and a well jittery brush for smudgin/blendin.....

CSnyder's avatar
he slightly looks as if he is smiling
the background is great, just the right amount of detail
and the figure and branch look great and great luck on in the challendge
xHaStex's avatar
thankyou kindly sir....
i surely appreciate your comments....
i rarely get votes on the challenges i do....there are so many awesome artists over there that ive given up crossing my fingers in the hope that ill ever win...i enter purely for fun...the challenges set often broaden my horizons and at the end of it, i get another piece to add to my portfolio....which is worth it in my opinion...
CSnyder's avatar
i do them for the same reason to maybe try something different
and you are very welcome:)
