****BudHead****
work in progress shots added

This really just started as a character study for a painting I am planning out. I kind of got lost in it for awhile and was just having fun with it, so it got a little more refined than I intended. There are some WIP shots included, but I must warn all that I am still no expert with the digital medium. I kind of just treat it as I would a traditional painting, more or less. If anyone would like larger pics, or has any questions I'd be glad to answer them the best I can. Hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend :)

See a step by step from another artist is always an enjoyement, full of informations. So thank you for that, Scott. I have absolutly no crit to made about this creature design, I dig it a lot. Specially the legs. The renders and textures are great. Great stuff, Scott. So, it's just the character study ? Can't wait to see the whole painting in that case !

Cheers.
Julien.

I'm agree with Julien, if it's just a study, I am really impatient to see the whole painting! Your BudHead is very charming, I like him a lot, especially his brawn skin. Very good job :)

Who are you kidding? This is way finished, or at least it should be. Lav it.
PS I especially like how the evolutionary process of this creature took care of genital shame.

F pants.

Great blog! I like your stuff, especially the monster sketches.

Brilliant stuff.

*just a note - Yeah, this little guy started out as a character for a larger painting. I didn't have a clear idea of what I wanted him to look like, and to be honest I didn't do enough sketches. So I started messing around in Painter IX.5 and I found myself getting really into this little dude.

Julien - thanks bud! I gotta get cracking on the whole painting. It will probably be less successful than the character study :(

SD - thanks again! It might be a while for the whole painting to be done. I'm looking at doing a fairly large oil painting of it.

Markus! - yeah- the study is totally finished- probably more than I would normally do for a character study. Haa- I'm glad you noticed his "genital shame" ! I got a good laugh or as they electronically emote these days -'LOL'

Andrew Glazebrook - thank you sir! I'll try to keep it interesting here :)
