View Full Version : Aardusdei (creature design)

05 May 2006, 10:20 PM
looking for a little help pushing this further. I'm painting it for this week's Creature of the Week over at I'm still a little awed by some of the work over there, so I'm trying to get feedback to push myself. Anyway the creature is basically a big aardvark/ armadillo type earth mover used as a hauling and pushing beast:

Any advice on pushing this to pro-level would be appreciated.

This is really cool, but I don't think I've ever seen an animal whose front paws look like hind legs. I've never seen an aardvark, but I somrhow doubt it's an exception. An artist can make anything he wants, but somehow that still bugs me. Also, the claws don't really look like they're really on the ground.

I would say total over all more contrast, and more darks. Add some specular (?) highlights as well (you know, the tiny super bright highlights.)
