Salticere Creature Concept Sheet
This is the latest redesign for my capstone project, this one is the Salticere.  Salticere are an extremely intelligent & curious species they are very technically minded and are able to manipulate mechanical devices to a degree higher than most other species.

Having evolved on a planet with extremely dense vegitation this species developed several jointed appendages to both maneuver & hunt in the lush forest of their world. Each of these appendages has sensory organs and a rudimentary brain, allowing the salticere to focus on multiple tasks at once. The limbs ‘sprout’ from the shell, similar to snail eyestalks. once deployed they can form into a variety of different shapes.  By changing the shapes of their limbs they can also mimic other species.

This is supposed to be a friendly and curious species, so I wanted a mix of creepy and cute.  I used jumping spiders as my initial inspiration. Let me know what you think!
Calaid Creature Concept Sheet
This is another creature I had originally developed for my capstone project, I wasn't happy with the original design so I wanted to update it to look a bit more unique.
Cosmic Monster
This was a painting I've been wanting to do for a while, when I have been flying I look out the window and imagine what it'd be like to see a giant monster walking across the landscape.  The idea behind this creature is it comes out of a portal, it doesn't really have a form, it is just a collection of dark energy that has a strong gravitational pull. As it burrows through the Earth, parts of the terrain are ripped up and the creature's body starts forming around the dark energy.  I wanted it to look like a Lovecraftian monster and took a lot of inspiration from those kinds of monsters and creatures.
Gorganiri Creature Concept Sheet
Continuing my capstone project with a newly design creature, the Gorganiri. Let me know what you think!  

The Gorganiri are an extremely large species of herbivores that live on the planet Guinviale.  The vegetation on the surface grows to enormous sizes, allowing the Gorganiri to thrive.  Due to it's size, many creatures use its mass as shelter, allowing them to travel great distances with minimal effort and protection since the Gorganiri have no natural predators.  
Kong Skull Island Poster Design Contest
This is my submission for the Kong: Skull Island poster design contest through PosterSpy. I painted this entirely in photoshop using various techniques I have used over the years. I try to go for a photo-real look in my photoshop paintings, but I wanted to include the skull imagery, so I used the smoke that is enveloping Kong to achieve that
Hey everyone! I am in my fifth year at DAAP working on my final capstone project to receive my industrial design degree.  For the project, I am creating a video game universe.  The concept is called Experiment 18. Experiment 18 is a proposed 3rd person action role playing video game set in the near future of 2075. I am developing this in conjunction with a writer, Blaise Jones. We are creating a rich and engaging universe filled with various alien species and technologies. This proposal will be completed at the end of April 2015 for DAAPworks.

I would like to get feedback on the various creatures and characters I have created for the game, what you like, what you don't like and if anything can be improved.  I created a survey monkey with all the different characters in the game, and if you could take a few minutes and fill it out, it would help me with my project a lot.  Please let me know what you think!

Thank you in advance and have a wonderful day!
