Scavenger

Hello everyone.  I've been having fun with the new Zbrush with this thing called Dynamesh.  I'm sure all the cg modelers everywhere, like myself, are in full excitement over it hehe.  Anyway, here's a creature I did using this new feature.  Started with a sphere and just kept pulling.  I imagine this entity to have the ability to cross multiple planes of existence unseen.  Our plane is his favorite dwelling place, as you can see via some of the trinkets he's adorned himself with.

The Explorer's Guide to Drawing Fantasy Creatures

Hi everyone!
It's been forever since I've posted.

A few months ago the how-to-draw book I'd been working on for most of the past year and a half was released. I thought I'd share some of the paintings of some of the creatures from the book. They're all painted with gouache on watercolor paper. The first image is of the cover, which was a wraparound. Unfortunately, much of the back was covered by necessary copy. To see what the cover actually looks like on the final product, click here.

For more info on the book you can check out my blog or this page from my website.

Thanks for looking!

Emily

The Vampyric research of Francis Gerber circa 1790

 

www.alexcf.com

Francis Gerber,  Swiss born Physician, Botanist, Chemist and Naturalist, whose prolific writings centered on the study of the origins of humanity. His own research began around 1776, where he commissioned African poachers to bring him specimens of the great apes, which he dissected in an attempt to construct a detailed inventory of “Terrestrial and aboreal primates  and their aesthetic and anatomical similarities to the Homo Sapien.” His most notable and extensive research pertained to the species “Homo Vampyrus” the symbiotic Hominid known as the Vampyr. He collected a wealth of knowledge, and most importantly revolutionized the study of Hemoglobin, through invention of sophisticated microscope apparatus.

Terrors of the Silt Sea

I resently had the opportunity to design and illustrate a new monster of the Dungeons & Dragons campaign setting, Dark Sun. This was my first chance to work on Dark Sun so I was pretty excited. The end result is the dreaded Oasis Beast and it has all the teeth it needs to OM NOM some adventures!

Consumed 

I've been having fun with this piece.  Drawing from Carlos Huante, Rob Bottin, John Carpenter, Giger, Bekskinski and i'm sure a hell of a lot of other artists (with a little "Walking Dead" thrown in there), I wanted to make something that was just a mish mash of all things I love about the horror genre. Happy Halloween everyone!
