Alright well here it is
I think I'm done. In case you missed my earlier posts my Leviathan spreads his message of destruction through the lead singer of a heavy metal band. Finally he consumes the planet leaving nothing but a skull shaped core from the planet which attaches to the leviathan increasing its mass.
I made one image to look like the album art for the band showing the destruction of the earth, the other is supposed to be a flyer for the band.

Things I learned during this challenge:
-- How to use the Photoshop 'Tool Presets' tab.
-- How to achieve a rough symmetry for character sheets.
-- I need to figure out how to render clothing (okay, I knew this one already.)
-- Redesigning the Batmobile is too daunting to attempt while participating in CHoW.
-- On my computer, you need to type Q instead of F to make an item a favorite in Skyrim. Also, I'm no match for giants.
-- I'm in desperate need of Matt Kohr's as-yet-unreleased tutorial on custom brushes.
-- Walruses can eat 4000 clams in ten minutes.
-- I'm too lazy to figure out how to calculate the time difference between Los Angeles and what I'm going to call "Greenish Mean Time".
-- Frequent CHoW contender Artfix had his work featured in a recent issue of Imagine FX magazine.
My Leviathan. Done to my best ability. Learned a lot and got faster by the end.
My idea is about a witch who does somekind of black magica and got a connection with Leviathan. Now he is on earth destroying everything on his way. He uses everything to make him bigger and stronger, so there will be some human, tree, animal stuck on leviathan.
And this is my entry

Finally finished http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=238380
Still not quite happy with mine, but it was good to get back into a major project like this.

Whew, I totally spaced the deadline for posting, so I'm glad there was an extra day! Apologies for the sketchy character sheet. I developed the concept further on my work computer, so I hope these initial sketches will suffice.
