These things look like scarier pokemon. I like them :D
Also - hi from Stickam. The cool termors worm thing is flower-like, but still badass.

Mutant wolf!
I felt really uninspired for this one, not to mention wolf anatomy has always given me a hard time. I tend to oversimplify it and forget a bunch of muscles and stuff.
Uhm... it has dragon wings...! And a big horn coming out the side of its face.
I really don't know what to say about this.
As always, full image can be found RIGHT HERE :D

I don't really like the wolf as much as the others. It has longer fangs, which makes it look like a sabertooth tiger. I like the tail and horn, but the wings seem slapped on. Maybe they could be incorporated better. As for the overall figure, I like the way it is drawn, but it seems too calm and reserved to fit in as well as the other enemies. Maybe make it frothing at the mouth, underfed and scraggly, or that crazed look in its eye (or all three ;O)
I also think your buzzard and wolf drawings are taking up a more cartoonish style than the first enemies. I also like the lineart in the first few more than these latest ones.

Anyways, they still look great. How many enemies are you planning to make total?

I find your art bad-ass and disturbing (in a good way).
I would like to see some of the 'creatures' coloured :B

I'm going to have to kick into overdrive tomorrow and get the last six other mobs concepted up, otherwise I'll be behind schedule... :c
I wanted to have all ten done by the 15th.
This here is a big mutant earthworm! How big, you say? Big enough.
I actually had a lot of fun making this guy, even though he looks kind of generic and not very original in my opinion.
The tentacles coming out of his mouth are supposed to be like a Jellyfish's; used to paralyze.
But then ended up looking kind of dirty...
As always, full picture can be found RIGHT HERE.

That's nice! Reminds me a bit of Molgera from Wind Waker, which was amazingly badass!!
I like your style a lot.


Who are you looking for? What are you looking at? A light? a star. A boat? an insect. A plane? a flying fish

For now, I plan on having ten. I'll most likely add more once I get the rest of the concept art done but for now I'll stick with ten, else I'll fall behind production schedule.
And yes, I whole-heartedly agree, the wolf looks completely different from the others, he looks way too tame. I didn't want to tarnish the whole noble look but it actually played against me. I'll be making a Ver.2 of him, make him look more feral and ravening.
Thank you for the input though!
Motivation boost get :D

Remade the concept for the mutant wolf!
It apparently looked to tame, so I remodeled it entirely after flipping through a Dungeons and Dragons monster manual :D
Hopefully I didn't rip anything off subconsciously.
A certain LITTLE GIRL told me she preferred the style for the first few mobs rather than the last ones, so I decided to indulge her >.>
But this was my first drawing of a mutant wolf. and btw fuck you

You can find the entire concept sheet RIGHT HERE! :D

I don't even know what Dungeons and Dragons are. So I can't really pin point if you ripped anything. But hell it's "super duper ultra omega kawaii desu awesome" Yep. Extremely nonsensical adjectives are the way to go I always say. But seriously man, it's AWESOME. I like your drawings because you seem to have quite a few styles going.

Haha I actually don't really feel like I have much of a style going other than anime. I'm kind of struggling with perspective and details on these guys, trying to make them as "believable" as possible without going overboard on details.
Adding colors will probably help.
But thank you! I'm glad you like :D

It does. ;D

Sadly.
Or happily. I don't know if you enjoy these distractions or not.

Oh my Jonny! Why are you coughing so much lately? Are you sick?

also he said he looked at the Dungeons and Dragons thing so that might explain things better.

Truth is you were both helpful, as is everyone else that's bothered posting here with feedback and/or compliments and/or insults, it's kind of selfish but the attention keeps me motivated :D

In the meantime, here's a picture of a MUTATED BEAR LOL that I tried to draw.
I honestly can't remember the last I drew a bear, or tried to. If ever.
Bear anatomy is heavily referenced from google image search :D

His face is cute. Reminds me of a leopard seal.

Looks more like a gopher, especially with those two oversized incisors.

Probably cuz I made him standing up.
He hopefully won't look too much like a gopher when he's on all four.

MUTANT SHARK! Rawr!
It was fashioned with the DNA of shark, alligator and narwhal, and the spleens of ten tigers!
I educated it with pictures of me in a dress, and then I gave it herpes...!

It may seem a bit uninspired for a creature concept at first, but it in fact actually is...!
I'm a day behind schedule on these so I apologize if the concept of a shark with croc legs and a horn seems both dated and unoriginal.
Drawn while LISTENING TO THIS :D

P.S. It was quite a struggle, but I resisted the urge to replace the horn with a laser cannon.

That's actually the shark I used as a base :D
It does look pretty sick, most badass shark I've ever seen.
I tried making the jaw more protruding but it looked like a bird beak with teeth.

I like your work. You're clearly creative, a lot of these designs feel fresh. Going forward, if you're going to stick with linear things, I'd suggest giving more variety to your lines. For the most part, they're all the same thickness. If you vary the thickness it will be more interesting visually and it will give your work even more depth.

Thank you for the criticism, I'll be sure to put a little more umph in my line thickness in the future. These were mostly meant to be creature concepts to be used as reference for the actual game art, but I will be sure to take your advice to heart!
That being said, thank you for taking the time to comment, the imput is always appreciated and invigorating, in an artistic sense. :D
