Earth Creature

All done in photoshop. I was lookin at a couple of photos I took at Tybee for the environment. I wish that there were guys like this at the beach.

Pretty slick bro! Your conceptual work is getting stronger and you continually up your digital skills. That said, the overall piece is a bit dim. Lighten it up a bit. Also adding some deeper shadows will give certain areas a stronger POP. Possibly some green to go with the earthy color palette. Overall good job man. Keep it up!

Awesome work Chud! I'd hate to meet that thing in a dark!

I like the overall sense / mood of oncoming danger for the little traveler on the dune. He's got bad weather and a sand monster to handle, and the titled angle on the pieces is meant to add to the uneasiness. As for the dunes themselves, I would drag a few of them out somewhat so that they flow into each other more / not feel as separated. Maybe shrink the guy just a tad too.

One thing that may be interesting is to either have the monster's right hand fade / melt into the water more, or somehow show the oasis being sucked up into his arm (maybe have a palm tree sticking out of it?). Play around with it and see what happens. Nice work as always, bro!

Are you out of your mind? ;-) This feels sort of like a Magic card; I don't know if that's what you were going for or not. The little dude in the sand is a great touch.
