Creature • BEAST SHARES MANY HEAD/FACIAL CHARACTERISTICS W/ THE GIRAFFE
Would you look at those dreamy eyelashes~

Awesome design.. kinda make mine look so.. unoriginal. I used one of those face reference and started from there without thinking. Prehaps I should invest more in thinking before starting to paint!
At least he has blue tongue... does that count as a beast?
Great entries people! Love your ideas and colors! Values are also awesome!
my feeling about this dsg - please don't feel disrespected )
FinalKnight cool as always )
Chuckcamo lil'bit glamourous, but what bothers me, is that it looks like you've used just few stamps of smoky brush. Rendered well though.
Arteater your's looks fucking frightening, but it's little hard to catch the giraffe part.
AliceA would've like to see the whole body.
Hamsta personally I think you've nailed this one very hard! Just would've be nice, if you'd improve you rendering (more sharp detailes needed), but design looks solid.
Dm7 accurate rendering, but you've said it - not that original.

Great job people! loads of superb creatures
Yay for creature concepts
Should have done more of the creature's body though.
Ah, just looked up smoky brushes.... that make sense.
What I did was no different than using Alchemy, looking for readable shapes from a fractal I created.. Your like the 3rd person to question that image, I guess that's a good thing?
Here is the original image, it does look a little like smoke...
