I enjoy creating creature art and aspire to become a paleoartist! Though I enjoy drawing animals existing, extinct, and of fiction!

Heyo! First off, thank you guys for giving everyone this opportunity and taking your time to look at everyone's submissions. Secondly, thank you Peter for that Light Box livestream the other day. That really helped me take a step back and think about what I wanted this submission to be. Try to guess all the references before reading! : - This here is an Armored Simitema and it is an arthropod that has adapted similar proportions to that of the Lemuridae family. Being a paleoartist and creature designer, I wanted to make sure all my references looked as natural as possible to the creature and it's environment. - For the Simitema, I referenced the lemur, locust, motorcycle (fuel tank), the spiked monument, and the french armor (color scheme and spear). - For the environment I referenced the scarab beetle, rapier guards, gun, and fungus images. I hope you guys love it!

How did you become so radically cool? Nah, but in all seriousness, I've been think about the path I want to take as an artist. I love drawing creatures and currently I draw lots of paleoart and fantasy creature designs. Im currently an intern as a paleoartist and it's fantastic so far, but a part of me wants to also reach into the game/movie industry creating creatures. As a newbie, should I just stick to what I have for now or should I try to branch out early on? I hope the context I gave made the question a bit more clear. Thanks Scott!

Hey Jeremy! I love drawing creatures, and I consider myself a paleoartist and a creature designer. As you can see I have plenty of creature art but not many of them have environments. Are there any tips you have about making simple yet effective backgrounds than mainly showcase the character/creature?

Hello there :) my name is Zach and I'm from Australia. So cool to see so many skilled artists in here, really looking forward to getting to know everyone and their work. I think it's invaluable to be able to connect to other artists, to learn from and inspire each other. I love to draw all sorts of subject matter, usually of a more macabre nature. I mostly work traditionally and enjoy working in graphite or ink. I always find myself getting lost in doing little details and gritty textures. In the last few months I've started colouring my work digitally. So I'd love to learn all that I can from some digital artists :) Even though I've been drawing ever since I could hold a pencil, sharing my work has been a recent development (especially to an online audience). It really has been an eye opener for me, how kind and supportive other artists are. I guess we are all in the same boat Here are a few of my pieces :)

Love the attention to details! When I was first learning art my uncle (who is also an artist) had me trace and recreate manga panels from Berserk. Kentaro Miura, the author/artist, put so much detail into his ink work and this reminds me of that

Hey! My name is Noe and I love drawing creatures of all shapes and sizes. I wish to work as both a creature designer and a paleoartist in the near future but I am always trying to figure out how to improve my art. I really look forward to communicating with everyone and hopefully discover unseen flaws and ways I can improve my art while making friends! (Left: Werewolf Design, Right: Thylacoleo Paleoart)

Heyo! I am currently trying to get into Paleoart and Creature Design. I know I need to practice more animal anatomy, obviously, but something on the back of my mind for some reason is making me feel guilty that I'm not focusing on human anatomy. I'm not drawing humanoid characters so I'm not sure why I feel this way. So I guess my question is should I learn human anatomy since that's the popular most popular study or should I stay focused on what I enjoy [that being animals/creatures]?
