This is my first post on CREATURE SPOT. My name is Maury Ruiz, and I work as a concept artists mostly dealing with creature design. I'm glad to be apart of this site and will be posting more soon. Thanks again...
This is a somewhat quick creature concept I created in ZBrush. I created the composite and colored it in photoshop, as well as the background/layout.
There is some Naga influence here:
The nagas are an ancient race of semi divine serpent creatures beings first depicted in ancient Vedic Hindu mythology and oral folklore from at least 5000 B.C.
Stories involving the Nagas are omnipresent in Hindu and Buddhist mythology and still very much a part of contemporary cultural traditions in predominantly Hindu (India, Nepal, and the island of Bali) and Buddhist (Sri-Lanka and South-East Asia) regions of Asia. Both regions have birthed numerous legends about the fabled race of Nagas and their sometimes benevolent, sometimes wrathful, interactions with the creatures of both heaven and earth.
