It's Hard To Smile

Please don't gawk at him, despite his vicious appearance he's quite sensitive.

Twilight-hating Werewolf

He eats Twilight fans for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Oh how I hate those books, movies, and their rabid fans.

Mr. & Mrs.

I've apparently been in a fishy mood lately. I've recently been delighting in sticking deep sea fish on top of lady bodies. This one obviously has a lantern fish for a head, lantern fish are quite interesting creatures. The males are tiny little parasites that swim around until they find a female they then latch on to her and become one with her flesh.

So here's Mrs. Lantern fish lady and see if you can look around her body and find her tiny husband.


I think his name says it all, part man part fish. Created with a micron pen.

Contemplation (Happy Thanksgiving!)

He's thinking about what he's thankful for... hope everyone is having a good Thanksgiving!

I'm working on a couple colored paintings right now so hopefully this will appease you until I get some finished work up :)

This sketch really grew wild on its own, a lot of my sketches I have pretty planned out before starting but this one was more of a vague idea that I let blossom by itself. This is also one of the creatures I've been developing for several years, and for the most part I'm still never happy with how they turn out, but this is one of the few that I still like, probably because it's rather abstract and also the amount of energy it has in it.

Well not exactly a harpy considering it's male, but it's the only thing I can figure to call it for the moment. I'm really proud of this guy and I'm hoping to get him colored soon even though he looks so nice in plain old black and white.

On an unrelated note I hope everyone had a good Halloween :)

Devil Cat

A redesign of one of my old ideas for a satanic cat demon thingy. I like the whole combined corn/ear idea but I still don't think I've executed that well enough yet. Otherwise I'm quite pleased with this little sketch.

COW 157

This is the torture bug. This horrible creature was created as the ultimate revenge, the perfect biological torture machine. It injects its victims with a powerful toxin that keeps the unfortunate soul conscious throughout the entire ordeal. The torture bug then begins disemboweling and finally dismembering its prey. It does this slowly and meticulously. While it invades and desecrates its victims body it also invades their minds. The large crest on the torture bug's head allows it to telepathically invade the victims mind. A death at the claws of the torture bug is so horrible its use has been outlawed by almost all galactic governments.

Bramble Horse

This sketch is a couple months old and I haven't gotten around to coloring it up yet, but I still really like the design, so I'll put it up here. I need a nice balance of sketches and finished work anyhow and so far I only have one sketch up here. I'm also testing out a new seal with my initials, *shrug* it's okay, but who knows if it'll show up on other pictures. Only time will tell.

The God of Madness

Inspired half by cthulhu legend and half from a dream I had.

He can easily conceal himself as a human if he so chooses, and he often does considering his true form will cause any mortal mind to go completely insane. Thankfully, as an artist my mind has gone insane long ago so he allowed me to make this lovely sketch of his true form so that puny mortals may now admire him without their brains exploding.

COW 153

Scientific Name: Druas viridescent
Common Name: Viridescent Screechers
Planet of Origin: Glauko
Environment: Numerous Locations

Viridescent Screechers, Green Howlers, Tree Banshees, all are names for the same creature, Druas viridescent. This species owes its nicknames to the female’s ferocious disposition. During the brood season she will claim a rotting log that is soft enough she can easily insert her long ovipositor. Once her eggs have been lain inside she will defend the rotting stump from all manner of other creatures even those much bigger than herself. Females first let out a horrible screeching yell at whatever is bothering them, then if that doesn’t work they will chase, bit, scratch and harass whomever or whatever they have deemed a threat until it goes away. After mating they will even chase males away form their perches, although some young males naively hope to stay around and help raise their offspring they are inevitably attacked and chased away by the belligerent females.

Tentative Return

I have been having some health problems and so have not been posting consistently. I seem to be over the worst of it by now, so I will try to resume posting, however I'll probably be a bit inconsistent with posts till I'm really firmly back on my feet again. :)

Rat Fiend

A creature of death and decay, this vermin demon not only thirsts for bloodshed and feasts on carrion but he also likes a good cranberry muffin every now and then.

Gold VS Silver

The two titans rage underwater, the silver serpent strikes but misses, leaving himself vulnerable to the furocious jaws of the golden serpent.

This picture never really got the final polish I put on most of my pictures but it was quite fun.

The Eye

Based on a dream, and a tiny thumbnail sketch from my sketchbook.

COW 152

Scientific Name: Demipondus pravus
Common Name: Tongarian Devil
Planet of Origin: Tongar 10
Environment: Numerous Locations

These creatures were first discovered when colonists started mining Tongar 10. The Tongarian Devils lived in a series of caves buried deep bellow the surface. When the colonists accidentally unearthed these horrid creatures they swarmed the surface, devastated the ecosystem and killed many innocent lives. Although only half a pound, and small enough to hold in one’s hand the Tongarian Devils are dangerous because they attack in large numbers. A pack of twenty can consume a human in less than ten minutes Their powerful jaws and teeth not only allowed them to easily chew through bone but also to gnaw through walls, doors, and pipes to get to terrified colonists. Only a handful of colonists could be rescued from these pint-sized terrors, and since then Tongar 10 has been designated a restricted planet. Although some may argue that these creatures were merely acting according to instinct and as such are not truly evil the survivors of the horrible incident, and those who lost family members to the Tongarian Devils will tell you differently.

COW 151

Common Name: Yellow-Ringed Lance-Head
Scientific Name : Lanceacephalous maculates
Planet of Origin: Zianovis
Environment: Rocky Deserts

Yellow-Ringed Lance-Heads are most easily distinguished from other species of Lance-Heads by the yellow spots and rings on their body. However, being close enough to the animal to see these spots may be dangerous.

This species hatches from round, tennis ball sized eggs. The eggs of this species are a mottled grey-brown that blends in with the surrounding rocky environment. Eggs are very tough and rubbery and incredibly impact resistant because they must survive the fall from their mother’s perching place, near the top of a cliff, to the cliff’s base.

Hatchlings instinctively move away from the cliff base that they hatched around. Females will remain roaming predators for a year, after a year their bodies will begin to expand and they will search for a suitable cliff to make their permanent home. Once settled in, their primary means of hunting will be their swollen bioluminescent bodies. Many native creatures are attracted to the beautiful blue light; when a victim gets within the Lance-Head’s range she will fire one of the harpoon like structures on her head. These harpoons contain venom that will paralyze impaled victims within seconds. Once paralyzed the Lance-Head is free to reel the victim back in and ingest it at her leisure.

Male Lance-Heads remain slim, agile, wandering predators for the rest of their lives, when they sense the presence of a female they carefully make their way to the top of her cliff, however they must be especially careful that they are not mistaken for prey.
