Karnicore by GuthrieArtwork Karnicore by GuthrieArtwork

These brutal creatures are the apex predators of their home planet, and unlike most predators the karnicore doesn’t just kill for food, but also for pleasure. Karnicores are perfectly equipped to give anything they find a gruesome death. Their massive maws are filled with rows of dagger-like teeth, which are constantly regrowing. The karnicore’s jaws can snap bone, its rancid saliva is full of deadly bacteria and once it sinks its razor claws into its victims it will never let go. The karnicore is truly the ultimate predator of its land; the karnicore fears nothing, but everything fears the karnicore.

Very nice. Like the mandrill lyk colouring over the snout,very intriguing to see on an apparently reptillian type creature nd his tail is jst amazing nd magestic wit all itz rings. Nt to meantion hw stark the contrast of his beauty is to the gruesomeness of hw he proudly devours his possibly freshly caught meal.

GuthrieArtwork Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2013   Digital Artist

kitsune2008 Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2013

A question for you if i may. how do you put that "do not use" sign in the description? i have a dragon of my own i want to label with that.
GuthrieArtwork Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013   Digital Artist
Just in case you didn't already figure this out type : icondonotuseplz:: iconmyartplz: but without the spaces
Saberrex Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
thank you very much. also, your Karnicore is one of my favorite beasts. it looks like it could eat a thanator for lunch.
Saberrex Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Magnificent. i came up with a quadropedal allosaur called the Shark-dingo for the book i am writing that vaguely resembles this.
LithiumSpartan Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2012
this is one of those shoot first ask later animals, is the face based on a mandrill? not a big fan of monkeys but it really adds to this creature's face, is it a mammal or a reptile or a "don't ask questions this is scifi"
AWorger Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2012
awesome picture. i love what you have done with the face it is really unique! the colours are fantastic. beautiful cg work
Gunslinger-of-Hearts Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
What a beautiful creature... I love the exquisite details and the uniqueness of it. I see it as disturbing, but beautiful to view. Interesting qualities. :)
GuthrieArtwork Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2012   Digital Artist
Thank you, I'm always happy to hear people see the duality of beauty and terror I try to put into my creatures.
Billy-008 Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Cool, the amount of teeth in the bottom jaw kinda remind me of this guy [link] and the top jaw/snout reminds me of this guy [link]
I beg you, design monsters for these games! :worship:
GuthrieArtwork Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2012   Digital Artist
Awesome, I actually have played MHTri and was inspired by Deviljho's horribly toothy maw, but you're the first to ever make the connection. Maybe one day if I'm lucky because that really would be amazing to have even one of my designs in a game like Monster Hunter.
Billy-008 Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Haha, sweet! Ya I never knew Monster Hunter existed until I got Tri, now I just can't get enough!
Yes, they should so hire you. I want to fight the Karnicore and the Zephedieu. :drool:
wolfplanet102 Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2012  Student General Artist
I have a question though, do the females resemble the males or do they look different?
