Beast by KENBARTHELMEY Beast by KENBARTHELMEY
Sculpted and textured in Zbrush. Shading and the final render in Modo.
I used several references from Frogs, Snakes and Geladas to come up with this design.

When I first looked at this.... I asked myself "The duck is this?"
Then I saw how detailed and amazing the artwork is now I ask myself "How did I get here"
Love the art work :D It is absolutely horrifying, which is a good thing.

When I was younger I had a dream, recurring, always terrifying and suspenseful until the end and I was JUST telling someone about it yesterday... and in this dream the thing that was tracking me was never visible until i "come to" in a deep cave somewhere and it begins to feed .... and I have never been able to describe it other than to say it was somewhere between Alien and Predator.... this is not it but it's really the Closest representation to what I dreamed in the head and face... and I want my mommy now!  Great job!

Man, that is incredible and disgusting and amazing all at the same time XD I love all of the detail and definition in it. I can almost imagine touching the creature and feeling its structure beneath my hands. ... Though that's not quite something I'd want to do XD Very marvelous work :D

I bet it'd be very intriguing to see the skeletal structure of this guy.
