Looking awesome! I mistook it for a pencil sketch at first until I saw the white glinting highlights. Really slimey and grotesque looking so far. I would suggest maybe some of those nasty pointed fly hairs sprigging up out of that there beefy arm. Can't wait for color!

Greetings, Today i got little more time, so i changed the a little bit the whole concept.
I added some detail on the head and a body. First I will try to paint the body more human-like, so when i change it i will have greater possibility to make it alian-like.
There are some problems with the lightning, but i will fix it tomorrow

I kinda liked the other composition better. It was more intriguing - more "dynamic" as they say, as it looked like he was about to pounce out of the picture. This new angle/composition is more posed and not as in-your-face as the other. It also appears more as a costume a man is wearing.

Also, my eye is pulled away from his monstrous face to the center where I really don't want to be looking. The legs and arm all point me that direction, and the pose seems...weird. Like he's putting a fist to his leg for no apparent reason. If you're going to do more of the human body, can you at least make the lines draw the viewer's eye to the most interesting part (the head)? Maybe think more about his posture and what you're trying to convey (insanity, fury, loss of control, or maybe even pain).

Thank You very much for your comment Vizon! I will add the insecc detail over the human muscles. This is just the beginning :P

Unfortunatelly today I had not much time to work on the concept. I only added some detail on the head, the back and i fixed a liitle bit the light on the arm and the foot.

now THIS is interesting... the way you build up the creature in shape... And I've seen other work you've done here at CGsociety, and I must say I am mighty impressed.
You have a very good way of describing structure, shape and structure. And did I mention structure? :)

Seriously, from watching your little Gods made of stone and earth, to see this slimy fly-thingy, you seem to have great knowledge in drawing and painting. It's hard for me to give you constructive critisism when I think what you do is great, but I have one thing I would like to see... and that is how you paint with less subtle colours. To see something with mad colours, just to see if you manage to balance it as beautifully as you balance the earth and stone-tones in previous artworks... if you'd like to try that challange with your morning-coffee one day ;)

Keep up your good work!
