Skillshare Class-Creature design by arvalis Skillshare Class-Creature design by arvalis
Take the class on how I did this for only $19

This is the creature design I completed as a demonstration for my class on Skillshare.  The class goes over how to create a creature from nothing all the way to a final piece.  The class is a series of 5 video lessons that you are free to watch at your own pace.  You can also choose to partake in the class assignments and participate with the community and myself.  Hurry and sign up now!

The dragon is a Teal-mouth Thornhawk for inquiring minds.

Creature Design Class!

The composition and the textures blow me away. Also, this thing scares the bejeesus out of me.

I just noticed that this looks like it was very heavily inspired by a bird of prey

Yeah the feet are very owl-like, the nose has sort of like a beak notch to it, the chest is very large like that of bird, and probably the most interesting part is the wings.  I can see how you divided up the parts of the wing to be sort of like all of the different types of feathers that are on the birds wings.  And than of course the entire dragon is swooping down to grab prey like a raptor.
