Werewolves I

I'm on another binge for the last little bit. This time, it's my favorite "Dark"/"Horror" concept- Werewolves!
I'm sorry, I'm on the Lycian's side. Always have, always been.
So I sketched out some werewolf concepts. After all said and done, the first group at the top looks more like a different "Rival" pack then the bottom ones.
Yes, there ARE female werewolves amongst the sketches, but I'm not keen on the ling eyelashes and "effeminate" style of drawing monsters/animals as they are nearly identical to their male counterparts in nature.
Also, I wanted to design a couple of werewolves with collars because 1) I love cutting into the main and having the indication of the actual neck thickness, and 2) the implication they could belong to someone... sort of like an ancient tribal symbol of being "taken" but with a modern twist.

Animal Caricatures I

I am having a great time here on the West Coast. Especially when my friend/s take me to the best hiking places- those that contain lots of animals for inspiration.
The Beaver, Seal, and Heron are from local animals, while the Bat and Lion were thrown in from previous zoo trips.

"Yellow Moon" Concept I

I was hired by an Australian Music Band (8 Ball Aitkin) to create a music video for one of their songs. I decided to post some of the concept art relevant to the production.
Seen here: Crocodile concepts, story concepts, and color.
