Siberian Tigerpede by GuthrieArtwork Siberian Tigerpede by GuthrieArtwork
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

Siberian Tigers were such wonderful animals when all we knew of were Earth organisms. However their original design has become mundane by today's standards. In order to keep zoo patrons' interest we had to update these creature's designs. Survey results as well as attendance numbers clearly show people are not interested in seeing the Siberian Tigers from our youth. In order to save some vestige of these animals we made the choice to update the Siberian Tiger to appeal to today's generation.

Love the way the markings blend near the end of its body, and how it changes from flesh to carapace. :3 Also the feet are great, I love those feet.

Very interesting concept, and wonderfully executed! I love how well you've merged these two creatures together; this design really works nicely! And it's so interesting to look at!

Just a seamless merging of two completely unrelated animals, and I'm pretty fond of the worn-paper / travel-journal aesthetic. Very nice, and the workflow you posted of this is great, too. I'll have to try out some of those techniques.

Keep up the awesome work. Can't wait to see more.
