This creature was designed for a “Dark Earth” themed project at Gnomon School of Visual Effects. His face was inspired by this bizarrely creepy stingray (?).
Polished up this handsome fella to make him more portfolio-worthy. I based his color scheme on octopus stinkhorn fungi. (Seriously, if you ever need inspiration for creepy stuff, look at fungi)
In other news, I never thought I’d enjoy drawing and painting monsters as much as I do.
