Some recent paintings and the sketches that preceded them. First up, a cowboy and his trusty steed.
Kaiju for another Helpful Bear design contest. Kind of a living jet, with anatomical cues taken from leatherback seaturtles, goblin sharks, octopus/squid and flying fish.
Rough sketches for a wyrm design, and a showman with his vaguely wyrmish pet. The big wyrms up top stem from an idea I had to merge polychaete worms, Mongolian death worms, and European wyrms. They're slithery behemoths that tunnel through dunes and swallow camels, and their "horns" are actually retractable feelers.
