Monkey, Liger and Crazy Fish...Oh, and some boobs.

Okay so its not really a liger or a monkey or a fish, but I'm not the best at naming things. Mostly competiton stuff.

Thunder Lizards

It's been a while, crazy busy at work, blah,blah,blah... ;)
I did a series of dinosaur vignettes for a local museum.  Here's a few, there's more on my site.
Each one corresponds to a life-sized exhibit model.  You can see the models on the museum's site.

BTW - They have similar poses because they all had to fit within a circular design for exhibit signage.

Amphibious

I don't know how often I'll get to post.  The shop is quite busy.  I'll try to find tidbits that haven't made it out just yet.  This one is brand new and hasn't been seen publicly -- until now. 

He is called Amphibious.

Aspiring Creature Designer

Hello everyone, i am absolutely thrilled that my work has been found cool enough to join this prestigious community.  My name is RJ Palmer, im currently a 20 year old art student on break at the Academy of Art University.  Rather recently i have decided to put some focus on creature design, and i would greatly appreciate some input to point me in the right direction.  Here are a few of my recent creature ideas:

The Kraken from Clash of the Titans

This creature took the longest to design. I must have easily done a few hundred concepts, but in the end it was well worth it. I’m very happy with what the character looked like in the film. Thanks MPC!

Some recent after-work sketches.

Amazing stuff on here lately.

I might have to get my 'save image as' on.

Howdy

Hey everyone! I think I know almost everyone here, but just in case, I'll go ahead and start with an intro post. 

My name is Daarken and I've been working in the game industry since 2004, mostly on Magic: The Gathering, World of Warcraft, and Warhammer. After 3 years as a concept artist for Warhammer Online, I am moving back to Cali to pursue freelance full-time. 

I hope you enjoy, thanks!

I created this illustration for an iPhone app that I am coming out with soon. I also made a video tutorial that is available through my store. The trailer can be seen here.

Special Effects from Denmark

Hi fellow creature lovers

I've been special effects makeup now for more than 16 years here in Denmark, so I thought maybe it was time to show some of my work here, in order to expand my network and perhaps get some more work abroad.

As you can see I love creatures and have been dabbling a lot with LARP'ing, which is a big thing here in this country.  Many of the latex mask I do are Orcs, Goblins or other fantasy creatures for mostly Danish fantasy shops, but also suit construction, large scale props and decorations and character makeup too.  I'm completely self taught and have been teaching makeup and effects for many years, in order to help others become creative and realize their potential.

I hope you like my work and I look forward to your comments!
