I'm trying digital painting now

I'M AWARE IT LOOKS AWFUL AND IS FULL OF RENDER ERRORS
GODDAMMIT I'M THE WORST PAINTER LET ME EXPLAIN WHY

  • i shrunk this image so i could save it in a separate file but i forgot to edit the proportions BACK when i finished and i passed the history mark with it
  • i've been painting it half size all this time
  • LOST A WHOLE DAY
  • fuck it, this book will never have a cover
  • i'll have to paint the entire piece over again because i saved over the master file with the constrained proportions
  • literally crying

Huilotl
One of the many nachtiné on the backs of the great alebrije, Huilotl. Herds of these districts will wander the pampas of the continent of Totostec, and the people and beasts live together as one.

Home town for a D&D character.

Flab Cat

he's not really a kitten anymore

but hes still really cute and likes to play and take naps

I have a new system; just got photoshop put in. Going to try test pages for Ow My Sanity and a few other things.

No promises.

Only horrible, crippling despair.

Oh, Japanese waters. You gave us this and the mandala puffer.

You, the arctic, and the Galapagos really need to get together and design a hatred squid that can control time.

Okay, that mandala puffer really threw me for a loop!  Reminds me in equal measures of the carrier shell

and that crackpot "kraken art" hypothesis:

I love carrier snails, so much. My uncle has an entire shelf of his seashell collection devoted to them - next time I'm over there I've got to take pictures of the one with plastic junk all over it.

Pursuant to your "organic buildings" search:

www.rogerdean.com/home-for-lif…
www.amazon.com/Zoomorphic-Anim…
thomastapir.deviantart.com/art…

A Google image search on "biomorphic architecture" will also net you a lot of beautifully "organic" designs, though of course not truly biological.  : p

I did these but they're really poopy. I'll look later and start fresh with a new sheet. The Tapir Tribunal Temple in the lower right will probably be jazzed up a bit more and have MORE SPIKES AND HAIR

Aw, I think they look great!  I was reading them as more vegetable than animal, am I wrong about that?  Maybe I am, given the spikes and hair...I'm probably unfairly biased in this regard by Harry Harrison's Yilane cities:

www.isfdb.org/wiki/images/b/b8…

There's something creepy about the idea of a building with hair, actually...Spikes I can live with; hair pushes some buttons, gets me thinking of teratoma.  Hm, reminds me of a story I read once, set in biotech-intensive near future.  The metaphysical systems of karma and transmigration of the soul were also well-understood and even regulated by this point...Story revolved around a kind of menage a trois reincarnation drama playing out between a married couple, their possessed baby, and a literal "living room" hosting the tortured soul of a homicide victim.  Very strange, John Shirley I believe...His stuff is always brutal and unsettling.
