yeah...ive seen....i know i dont have to tell you, but youre amazing, really! Im taking my university exam this summer in game development and 2d graphics for games, and people like you are what really motivates me! no matter how good you get you can always find someone whos better, and i take that as a challange, you just wait!^_^anyways, your anatomy is flawless, you really have a fanatstic way of rendering muscles and textures, as well as movement...do you usually start with a greyscale and color that with color/multiply layer, or do you actually use color when drawing?

Hahaha, thanks for the nice comments. :D

I often do start with a greyscale and color it, but what I do differently is I take the grayscale to about 70 percent complete, then colorize it, then finish the remaining 30 percent in opaque color and value.  It works great!

Epic! Everything about this thing is lethal in appearance, great job on the chitinous armour on it's back and the head of this beast looks truly nasty!

I think that's kinda where I'm sitting on them too. I also dug Hecotonchires, as sort of a tragic, fucked up, monster thing. ;)

It lacks the human face that I think really defines a manticore's creepiness. But all the same, I just *adore* the way the reptilian, arachnid and mammalian traits all synch up into one prickly, nasty whole. The tail looks like a natural extension of the rest of the body, despite belonging to an entirely different phylum of animal as the rest.

That gaping, glowing maw is also a great touch. Gives it, if anything, a touch of shark.

It's not really how I imagine a manticore, but it's a stunning creation all its own.
