Taural by Mr--Jack Taural by Mr--Jack
Beastie!
I feel like I use this pose / design quite a lot, an easy sort of go-to when I'm not sure what I'm doing, but I was quite happy with how this one worked out.
Channeling a bit of Jim Murray this time, he's definitely one of my favourite artists, and his combination of stylisation and lovely rendering is fantastic.

A bit under 3 hours or so, all on one layer this time.
Process is up here -

Awesome creature design!
You did a great use of the method of just rendering the focal points. And it makes it feel more like a concept art, wich I love, rather than an illustration.

I can see you didn't use any texture at all. Did you use just one type of brush?

Do you always know what kind of ending look you want your painting to have? Or do you sort of design on the fly. I find it hard to use your method of blocking out a shape and painting in the details from there; I'm better off with linework acting as the base for my painting. o.o

Oh my... you are able to capture so much suggested detail in your brush strokes. I've tried for a long time to emulate what you do, with no success.

Very well done!

by focusing on certain points on the drawing, and finishing them completely. Example the triangle that catches the eye here is his biceps (shoulder as well) and spikes on the shoulders and head. Horns are tertiary thats why they have medium details (the ones on the back).
