This was the first time i had used a graphics tablet to paint in photoshop, i used a soft edge brush which gives the image a hazy glow but i found that i was able blend tones together smoothly. I decided to role with the concept of being undergrond in a burrow with the light souce shining in from the surface.

|This is a prehistoric creature that is related to the armadillo the Glyptodon |
There is also the doedicurus
In my drawings i experimented with different poses...
The drawing above looks a bit too masculine because of the bulky shoulders... as it is has to reflect me i will have to make it more feminine.
As a form of defence the armadillo can curl up in to a ball... i felt i could reflect this in the body languge of my creature through a croutching pose. Although it could be interesting to look at the idea of rolling and incorporate movement into my piece. From here i think ill take some pictures of different poses i can work with.

Here is some of my work that i have done over the holidays in my free time...
|Forest Fairy Photoshop Edit|
I done this picture over the summer, its one of my first attempts at photoshop so its pretty basic. I don't like that i relied on the out line, i would like to break away from this in the current project and make it look more like a painting.
Rock Armadillo!!!... some relevance to my current studies.
Take two at photoshop. Again over the summer, i decided to play around with photoshop this time using a few of the filters. Still got those outlines!!!
|Zombie Doodle Page|
You have to doodle in a new sketch book!!! (Left 4 Dead channeling though my subconscious i think :/ )

|Full A1 sheet - For my life form design i chose to develope a bird design which linked with my mining robot as the carary that goes inside the cage in its crest.|
|Faces/ Hair-feather styles|
I was thinking of giving the Canary a lantern around his neck but i thought it would of looked a bit to much on this simple looking design.
I approached the drawings by using tracing paper to collect a range of shapes, then i let my imagination morph them into a form of creature, building or machine.
