Dragon and Deinotherium


 

Finally managed to draw some creatures again!  Been way too character-focussed for a while.  Dragon is pretty self-explanatory (not finished, but a fun doodle).  Deinotherium is an ancient elephant-like animal that went extinct quite a long time ago.

For full-res versions of these, check out my blog.

I love this style of art, the dragon is amazing and I LOVE the Deinotherium so much. You have not only created some beautifully subtle paintings but you have captured so much character in both pieces I love them. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful job on that Deinotherium! I love your stoic dragon - his face is so unique. Gorgeous work! I'm glad you shared these! I'm so inspired!

That dragon is gorgeous! Really like the Deinotherium too.

The dragon is so good. Loving the way it darkens towards the bottom of the appendages.... The red top of the head is real nice.

AWESOME! Beautiful markmaking in these, man, and nice color subtlety on the dragon. I really appreciate the type of trunk you gave to your Deinotherium as well, rather than giving it a normal elephant trunk. That shows me that you have a strong knowledge for the various theories on how ancient animals may have looked in life, and what's more, it shows me that you have a strong respect for the vast history and diversity of life on earth to try and get those things accurate. Too many creature designers don't seem to have that attitude, I'm afraid.

Awesome creatures. I just love the desiign of that elephant thing, just feels so natural and "right". great work!

Thanks for the kind comments, guys :)

Moai: Cheers, I'm glad you think so! Paleobiology is a side-interest of mine that I do find a really useful pursuit if one's wanting to do convincing creature design. Plus it's just fascinating in and of itself. I'd recommend the blog scienceblogs.com/tetrapodzoology if you don't know about it already -- the fellow who writes it posts about animals (well, tetrapods - the most interesting animals, generally) and occasionally writes posts especially for artists about how to correctly depict some extinct animals. A great one about sauropods comes to mind specifically.

Cristof Grobelski: Thanks, but unfortunately I can't take a lot of credit for the design of the Deinotherium -- it is an actual extinct animal :)

Awesome. :)
And is that dragon's head inspired by the hammerhead fruit bat, perchance? (Because that was my initial reaction when I saw it.)
