Winged Beast, Joshua Been (2D)

Title: Winged Beast
Name: Joshua Been
Country: United States
Software: Photoshop

This is a character I've had rolling around in my head now for a while. I painted it in photoshop paying close attention to edges. I am going for a realistic look without being photo real meaning I am not concerned with rendering out everything with perfect edges, more while looking at the focal point or payoff how woule the subordinate parts look in my peripheral vision if I were really looking at this. Then also leading you around the image with a few lost, found, sharp and blurry edges as well. Please let me know what you think.

Thumbs up

looking great, very natural lighting.
I'd still like to see the rendering pushed out a little further in the creatures face.

I like this picture. The stone structure is really a great idea a the creature seems .... hmm... natural ! like you could meet one in the real life. ( I hope not lol ) I really like your work. Maybe a little more details ... I like it

Thanks a lot folks. Something that's bugging me now that I'm looking at it fresh again, is his(assuming it's a he) right foot, the toes are all sort of looking the same one right after the other. I need to vary them up a bit. Thanks on the comments about the rock structure, I love painting that sandstoney rock formation stuff, and calculating where the shadows would fall under direct lighting.

nice sabre tooth bat. the only crit i have is that unless he is omniverous, that he shouldnt have flat front teeth, they should be pointy.
