Extraction Plains - Lephauntis Update & some Sketches

I haven't had much to share here lately, there has been some amazing stuff posted the past few weeks.

This was an image I had worked on a while back and only now had the chance to put the final touches on, but I'm happy with how it turned out. I worked on this image back and forth in b&w and color to focus heavily on the values. I wanted to populate it as this is a general concept for a personal project of mine intended to be a video game. Some inspiration came from "Shadow of the Colossus" and "Hellboy 2". I hope you like it.

Prints of this and others are available here: (be sure to click Customize it) to change sizes and paper quality to choose price options - the default is set at the largest size available. The Art of Mike Corriero - PRINTS & Mugs

Someone who used to work in the film industry as a special FX make-up artist/sculptor showed interest in wanting to sculpt the creature Lephauntis, so I update it with additional details and tried fixing some flaws in the anatomy. I also included a lay over with design notes. 

 

 Also part of that personal project, from the first image - some rough ideas.

Damn, Mike! Great stuff, especially the drawings in the bottom half of the post. That chicken/insect (chickensect?) critter two images below the fallen angel guy is my favorite creature design I've ever seen from you, I think.

I am very partial to all the insectoidalismic stuffs, and that multi-legged dragon type +!

Wonderful post Mike! Love the top environment! It's great to see your critters moving around in a world like this. Love the sketches! I've come back to this post quite a few times. Also, I have your book and look through it constantly! Keep up the excellent work! :)

Thanks for all the kind words guys.
Brynn - glad to hear that, thanks :)
Jarrod - thanks man, dragon-like creatures and paleo inspired designs are always fun.
Cory - the 1 with the really long hind legs, and small vestigial hind legs, that kinda has a shrimp-like back tail and a 3 way split mouth? That was a tiny doodle 1/3 the size you see here, I did recently..
William - thanks man, insect/bird combinations are always fun and interesting to explore. :)
Gio - thanks man
