Designing a new species...


I am making a new species... I mean drawing one... For the contest in DeviantArt... The rules are that it should be a combo of 2 or more different species... And no other specification... We can submit as many new species as we can think of... Except that the last date for submission is May 31 :(

So with so less time after I discovered about the contest, I am just throwing my pencils and papers on the ground and throwing myself on them, whenever it is possible to get a couple minutes... Draft sketches are here...

Will let you know when it all pulls together...

Update 1 already...

The CONTEST ends TOMORROW - May 28th!!! NOT 31st!!!!!!!!!

Update 2...

Just submitted my entry.. From next time onwards, I better find out about the contests early enough (I am not very sure if that would have helped... This time, I read, I had no time to really think about whether I can, I should do it or not.. and I plunged in!!)

Well, I still feel that my second draft was the best one among them all..

Cecheeman is a hybrid of Centipede, Cheetah and Human Being.

Animals included:
1. Human - Brain, face and some of his pairs of hands; I needed him to be intelligent!
2. Centipede - Limb appendages - that is, his hands and legs regenerate if they get sliced away from his body. Also, they stick to surfaces, but only a bit.. He has to be fast to move out so that his body weight doesn't pull him off surfaces if he's climbing one..
3. Cheetah - His lower limbs, ears, the main arm pair are those of the cheetah - making him a very fast and strong hunter.

He is a huge personality..

My final submission!! Looks fairly fine to me! With the time I had at hand, and a major re-work of the hands suggested at 12 midnight, this is a real GOOD PIECE for an hour's effort!!! :) :) I am happy with my species! I hope it is ok to post this at my blog!

This is my very first attempt at drawing anything fantasy!! Or alien!! Or mutant or the likes! I am not very find of the topics.. But hey, wasn't bad trying to come up with a new species..!

Great job on a fantasy figure, you're first one even. Good luck with the contest too.

Very interesting creation there, could be an awesome concept art =)
I love conceptual art. I have no idea how to do it, but I love creating fictional characters and giving them abilities and little bit of profile. It's just fun I guess ^^
