New Character Designs

Just a smattering of new character work that I've done recently.   I love drawing reptile forms and textures, and I love pig-based characters and the 1700's!

Brontotherium Caricature

 Here's a caricatured Brontotherium I sculpted for Weta Workshop.   It's an older piece, but I think it holds up relatively well, though I think if I did one today I would make the head much smaller to emphasize the girth of the body.   Hopefully more prehistoric mammals will happen for the future...

This is part of a potential future series.  I'm interested in exploring creatures that take inspiration from sources other than animals, and this is among my first attempts to explore psychological/emotional states using creatures.

Little Softshell Kappa

This is the soft shell variety of the Kappa.  Like other Kappa species, it is considered a delicacy.

Barrabas LockJaw

Barrabas Lockjaw, who is neither beast nor devil, haunts the garden where Mankind’s dreams are grown.   Desperation and Futility are his harvest, and with Bring-Down, his hope-killing scythe, he cleaves through the goals of men and women before they can blossom.

Thaal Hvark-Fetel

Thaal Hvark-Fetel is the Time Spider and Mayhem Spinner.   The threads of his web are panic and anxiety-with his gibbering abdomen and poisonous gaze, he has been at the center of chaos since thinking began.

The Ziz

The Ziz, according to Hebrew lore, is the Father of all Birds.   The Ziz is so huge that one flap of its wing blots out the sun.  The bottom image illustrates the larval form of the Ziz- it begins life as a sort of land-dwelling fish.
