Posed creature and City wips

Posed Creature with reference and previous muscled version

City wip 1

City wip 2

City wip 3

City wip 4 -current version
The first creature is a posed skinned version of the creature I have been developing for this module. I wanted to pose the creature in the gorilla like pose shown as I feel it best represents a creature that is elegant and strong.

The set of environment pictures above are my initial city design. I started with the drawing I did during a lesson, mixed with a textured surface which I created using different sections of pictures I had done in the lesson, I used various layer modes to get the different effects.

Once I had an idea of what direction I wanted to take with the city I started trying to refine the shapes into recognisable architecture with perspective. From this point on I believe its just further refinement of the painting as the main elements are all in place.

I also wish to try and bring back some of the abstract textures as I believe it will make the picture more organic and I am current verging on too refined a picture which is loosing the energy of the initial wips.

Edit: I spent a bit more time on the creature this morning, just fixing the proportions mostly. I think it still needs a bit of work on the rendering and position of the arms and back leg.

Here is my final version, I have widened the body to give the creature more balance

Figure drawings and creature designs

Figure Studies - focusing on blocking in

Creature Skeletons

Further Creature development selection

Musculature for 3 selected skeletons
This is the work I have done so far for the drawing for concept artists module. The first picture is a figure study block in, the next picture is a selection of creature designs that we were tasked with creating the skeletons for. And the last are 3 creatures I chose to add musculature for. For my final creature that I am tasked with adding the skin/texture etc in a pose suiting the creature.

I am going to develop the second gorilla like creature as my feedback indicated it was creature everyone liked. I personally prefer the flying creature at least from the skeleton stage. I believe it lost its 'charm' when I added muscles. If I have the time I will take that one to a finished stage as well.
