Sewer Dwelling Monster by loden Sewer Dwelling Monster by loden
Illustration done for an article on creature design and development for the December 2010 Issue of the 3D Creative Magazine.
I was aked to design from scratch a monster given an habitat, the sewer in my case. I did a lot of researches about the environment and the features of the animals that live on this habitat and then I developed a belivable creature based on my studies.
UPDATE:
I was lucky enough to get featured on the upcoming Digital Art Masters Vol.6 published by 3D Total Publishing; they just sent me a mail announcing they are producing a set of playing cards based on the book and the first 200 people to pre order the book will receive a pack of these cards for free, very cool! It's a very nice surprise, honored to be part of this book!
Thanks to the 3d Total Publishing team, awesome job; can't wait to receive my copy of the book!

Here is the official link to pre order the book:

Thanks!
