Cory's dump, pt. 1

Hey, everyone! Long time no post! My studies have kept me quite busy over the last year or so, but I have accumulated a few creature-related images to share. Here they are!

The above were for a fun sketchbook assignment in school. Were were made to study a microcosm, a small habitat or little world that we might have otherwised passed by without noticing. I studied a tidepool. Next, we were to design a creature or being to live in that environment. So here, I have a small beach-chupacabra and a crab-hunting cephalopod-toad!

The above are some creature-related images from a large freelance job I did last year called Courts of the Shadow Fey. I did about eighteen illustrations for it in all.

Random sketchbook aliens. The lower one was worked over with some gouache. Costume inspired by some futuristic avante-garde costume design in a Sid Mead painting.
Some characters of mine done in the style of Mike Mignola. Very fun!
This was very much inspired by the work of my buddy Philip Lietz.

I am REALLY digging:

The top sketches of the crab-eater and beach-chupacabra...
The two random sketchbook aliens...
The Lietzian flightless beast...

...and those Mignola-types are all pretty neat, but in a very different way.

What is the deal with this nicolblog4ever? Is that just something from the realm of Spamdom?

That tidepool critter (esp. the last page of sketches) is great, and the last post of the terrorbird/dino design.
