My first illustration for my digital ink and paint independent study for this quarter at school. For this and all subsequent projects I did something I had never done before, which was to take my own reference photos rather than rely on images on the internet. I borrowed different elements of the creatures and tried to make it work as a whole. Most of the color of this guy was done in Zbrush, except the eyes, and the drool from it’s mouth which I added in Photoshop.
