Tutorial on creature design. by Rodrigo-Vega Tutorial on creature design. by Rodrigo-Vega
So, nobody technically asked me to do this, but many people asked ... questions, so, here you have it.
I hope it'd be of some help if I can give any.

So yes, this is a tutorial on creature design, not on how to draw the creatures you design, that is up to your own practice... well, technically everything is. But this is my speciality I guess, and there are people far more qualified to teach you how to draw or paint.

amaazing work!! I'm trying to create a tattoo incorporating multiple animals to make one only creature, and this is what I've been looking for ages!!! THANK YOU!! Have you ever thought about making the design of a tattoo? If you're interested, i would be glad to arrange something with you.
*give me your price ^u^ * I'm an art student so I'm not rich, at all, but I would save up to have your work on my arm :D

Thank you for your time and congratulations again!!
