Hi Nickz

The image is great. How have you done it? It's painted or modeled? I like it

The only thing to say... why the halo? I think it could be more great if you add a dark environment.

Go on that way

Thumbs down Wow

That is an incredible character, and painting.
Everything about it is cool, I will remember this one for a while.
If he is reptilian, its strange for him to have nipples, but sometimes you gotta forget about logic. Bookmarked your website too, inspirational.

Thanks for the props.

Thanks for the props guys.

The glow thing is just something that I did to separate the character from the black BKG. I'm doing a series of images so I want them to have a consistent feel.

And yeah he is amphibious, and yes he does have nipples. I've started to notice I put the damn things on all of my creatures. Oh well, just call it a flaw or my weird art style... whatever that's just the way these things come out. I dunno??? Hope it's not too disturbing!

Here is another character from the series:

Actually the nipples look kinda cool on the character! Sure wish I could produce art like that. Would you consider making a tutorial on your painting technique? The Keeper character is great as well.

his legs look like they're positioned a little awkwardly, other than that i think it's brilliant!

nick, congrats on the front page, cool stuff.

watch out on the hands of your "keeper" one is smaller than the other and also holding the sythe at a different angle.

Wow, amazing work, man! You should bust out a 3d version now.

aaaaagh looks like the black outline epidemic struck again. :\

the anatomy and all that looks great. the texturing on the shoulder looks flat compared to maybe the forearms or the inner thigh. the glow stinks.. it'd be cool to see him in a leafy environment. gj tho

I like the painting style of the character and its skin.
Not sure tho about the orange glow. But I guess it does help pop it out from the background since it is a concept.

Nice design
