Goaty


Great creatures posted since I was here last! Here's a quicky I did recently depicting the god Pan, lord of the wilderness (or my version anyhow)

Great creature/spirit design. Beautifully alien and intriguing.

Good god I've been absent from the blog for quite some time.
Simon there's something about how you paint landscapes
IE; rock, foliage, soil etc. that just gets me all hot and bothered lol

I love this, very cool.. and yet again another beautiful painting overall.

Davi - Heh :D :D

Digisaur - Nice, thanks!

Mike - :) Cheers, Mike. Random fractally stuff like foliage and rock are my favourite to paint. Scibble a bit and bang, they're done!

Amazing! I love the primal but elegant design. I could see this in a Pan's Labyrinth type arty fantasy movie!

simon dominic said...

Thanks Vinod! I loved Pan's Labyrinth so that's a great compliment

Dude, this is great. Love the palette. Really gloomy and atmospheric.

Joverine - you got it! Pan is supposed to move unseen over wilds and mountains and cause panic in people who cross his path (that's where the word "PANic" comes from) So this guy can't see Pan but I've a feeling that soon he'll feel his evil touch... bwahahahahaha!

Greg - Thanks, happy you like the palette because first I wondered if it was a little too monochrome, then I worried it was too saturated. No pleasing me sometimes...

Interesting rendition of Pan. Excellent painting, as always! You'll have to teach me how to scribble sometime.:D

cassandra said...

Gorgeous.
I really love your colors and design~

simon dominic said...

Moai - Thanks for dropping by. Maybe one day I'll post a video of me scribbling so people can say, "Hey, he wasn't kidding, he just scribbles!" :)

cassandra - thanks, nice of you to say
