another piccie for the collaboration with :iconlenorekitty: and :iconbeastofoblivion:! aww another critter family :D

these guys would be medium-sized social predators, in this case a breeding female and her new litter, and that's a yearling female hanging out in the back - all the male young have been chased off into bachelor groups by now :P

NOOOOOOO!!! :P

I know you mean this well, but I have a whole soapbox that comes from being a creature designer.
ever since that movie came out, anytime I explain what I do, the response is: "oh you mean like Avatar!"

granted, Wayne Barlowe worked on it and he's basically the modern day father of decent xenobiotic design, but still!
It's a bit deflated to be reduced to whatever's hip in pop culture when you've been doing this for over a decade. :P

see? told you. soapbox.

LOL, sorry. Didn't mean to offend :)
I can see you point about being compared to whatever in at the moment, when for you it's been your career.

But there are worse things you can be compared to then a 2 billion dollar grossing movie.

A wonderful design and good poses. The tiny monsters are the cutest ever. Makes the grown-up ones look adorable in their own way as well. :)

It reminds me very much of Terryl Whitlatch, I love her work.

O yeah, she's awesome!
I have four DVD's she made for the Gnomon Workshop, about creature design. Here's a link, there's sample clips too: [link]
They cost a pretty penny but to see her work her magic is so worth it.
I also have her Wildlife of Star Wars book, awesome work. She is one amazing artist! I especially like how she is able to make a fictional creature look so natural, like it really could exist.

I have the new book on pre-order already! It's set for release in February.

I love them, but I'm having a hard time visualizing the hinging of the jaw. Is it at the back of the skull where one would expect?

yeah the mouthline deviates quite a bit: they must have floppy lips for licking their babies! :D i did some mouth-open sketches before preparing this drawing, mebbe i'll get around to putting the prep work up, if only to show how much i do before any clean drawings take place!

Sorry it's taken to long to get back to you on this. Just been swampped of late.

I'd be very interested to see the mouth open sketches, just from a design perspective. I know you put a lot of work into your pieces. :)
