Hit download for a better view of details.

This was done for my buddy ~Takeru409 as a design so he could model it for his demo reel. All i got for a prompt was "creature boss" and i ended up here. It started as a sphinx, i promise. You can see all the silhouettes i did to get an interesting design. This might be the most strange design ive ever done, excluding my human centitaur. Well guys i hope you like it.

Wow, I really like this. It looks like a really strong 3D image from a distance, and close up I can see all these little details, that must have been painstaking. I also love that you have such a broad range of tones even though it's one colour.

Something I enjoy the most about art is seeing the journey and judging by all the concept silhouettes I could tell you had fun coming up with all these different possibilities. Do you have particular interests to inspire this? Not many would think this immediately upon hearing "boss monster".

Thank you very kindly. As far as inspirations. I was thinking about those crazy jrpg bosses that make absolutely no sense. The ones where the villain suddenly transforms into a retarded and awesome monster ;p

CRAZY GOOD RESULTS. :icongrin-plz: This is one of those designs ppl can (and should) stare and stare at because ...damn. The spiraling of detail towards the epicenter is spot-on. :thumbsup:

DEFINITELY a boss. The damn thing looks difficult to kill--not due to it's implied stats, but implied moveset (move that can kill your party in one hit, moves that inflict several statuses simultaneously, moves that can also drain your party's health to increase it's own; etc.)

Interesting. I like the tentacles that hang down from her. She strikes me as something belonging to Lovecraftian lore. Very creepy and outstandingly original.

It started out as a Sphinx?
Its interesting that the first result led to this creepy form.
I have the feeling if this were to pop out in front of me in some game, I would jump if I wasn't expecting it.
I like the way you've combined different...parts to make this shape.
Those tentacles look like they would hurt if you got hit by them

It's like if the Elder Gods and Egyptians had a deformed baby. Very nicely done. That would certainly get a couple full clips out of panic if I ran up on it in a game.

This thing looks all kinds of weird and creepy - very appropriate for a "creature boss" I suppose. I'd love to slash that into pieces! :dummy:
