  • Thanks for the submission! Nice concept, but I'm afraid that the style doesn't really match the examples from the mood board. #37

    • Hi @Gana_art - I'm happy with anything that can fit on an A4 page (portrait or landscape) so it can be printed into a book. For the final export file I'd like as high resolution as possible as an uncompressed layered image file (e.g. photoshop/GIMP or whatever you work with).

    Fun ide with Uluru Mountain #30
  • hope this right thanks #27
  • Thanks for the update @salsades!

    I like the additions to the hands and feet, but I actually prefer the other face version.

    Perhaps it would work better with more of an animal face, like a lizard or a crocodile. #25

  • i just make the face, thanks #25

  • i just turn the color into blue, thanks #21
  • Thanks @salsades!

    I like the concept of the jagged mountainside with trees and vines.

    If you do any revisions, it would be nice to bring in some more fine details and elements like rocks or sand. #15
  • Thanks for the entry!

    If you do any revisions, it would be nice to add a few more fine details to give it a more wild and fearsome appearance. #13
