Alien Head Concept

I recently saw an instructional video by Neville Page in which he demonstrates how to create creatures and characters out of random marks and shapes. Though i did not approach this piece with the intention of trying out his technique, I definitely appreciate how using the random marks your hand makes can sometimes result in interesing design choices. I would have never painted something like this had i not seen some sort of face in a random scribble i made.

Icy Cliff Speed Painting

This is just a quick painting I did to test out a new brush I created. Above you can see the initial grayscale painting, the colorized value study, and the final image with added color and details.

Sky Mantis

So this is a giant alien bug i designed recently. I imagined that it would float in the atmosphere of a low gravity planet, inflating or deflating the air bladder ontop of its head to control its altitude.
