Hi, everyone. First, I want to thank Mike Corriero and Davi Blight for inviting me to join this blog. You're all artists that I respect and admire, and I'm honored to be included here.
Anyway, I'm Cory Trego-Erdner, known on the internetz as Moai. I'm a student (graduating with an AA this year), I have a humble job (cashier at a dollar store), and I have aspirations of becoming a concept artist. When I'm not drawing, I'm observing. I have a few personal projects that I want to get started soon that will involve plenty of creature design, but until then here's some older creature work of mine.

I'm currently a freelance artist running around working on several different tasks at the moment.
Here's a few creature designs to get an initial idea of my work:
MANUALLY ASSISTED SEA CYBORG
Cetaceans have long been used by military outfits, trained for marine mine clearance, reconnaissance, and even attack roles. However their willful, individualistic personalities caused severe problems. Escapees were common, which represented an extremely expensive loss in both resources and time, for their trainers. The J8 program solved this issue with heavily genetically modified Belugas featuring post-growth expansive mechanical grafting which fitted them to be overseen by a human pilot.
BROOD MERMAIDAn exemplary member of a Piscine Magistrate's sub-harem; a collection of fertile females used for the sowing of seed as opposed to serving a directly pleasurable role in the prima harem. A swarm of eels harass the brood mermaid in her later stages, eager to snatch up freshly hatched young. These swarms are encouraged by most Magistrates as they consider it an excellent measure for thinning the weak offspring; immediately setting the stage for a strong and culled lineage. Brood mermaids are often given as donativum profundi, "imperial largess of the abyss", to honoured guests, as the reciprocated offering of offspring is considered an assumed display of trust in important dealings amongst piscines of high standing.

The Mountain Ogre slowly establishes himself in the world of man, yet retains his knowledge of building natural armor instead of harvesting the metals and fabrics made by man. His intelligence is inferior to man's, yet he feels they are fools as they destroy the world around them to build wood boxes where stone caves would do them just fine.
The Ogre is drawn out from his solitary lifestyle by the vile smell of cooked meat and the noisey banging of tribal drums-- An annoyed ogre brings destructive results.

This is my first post here on this blog and i guess an introduction is in order.
I'm an concept artist at Creative Assembly/SEGA and i've been working in the industry for a few years now.
I've been published in many magazines and books, genres ranging from Game design to sketchbooks and philosophy of art.
But most of all i love the act of creating.
So here's a few creatures i've created to properly introduce "me"
