RWyvern’s Art (special edition!!)

Recommended Posts

HEY ALL!!

 

So it’s been a good while since I was last truly active here. Life happened, as it does, I learned skills and things. Even dabbled in animation! 
 

Like 3D animation!! It was some incredibly frustrating stuff! 
 

Having got my seven-year-long pet-project out of the way, I’ve begun work on another one. Most of my art is a part of it, and if you came here lookin for the anatomically-accurate hyperrealistic things as I used to try to draw, I’m afraid I set it aside in favour of more fantastical beasts that bend a few rules. Turns out creature design isn’t always about locking yourself in with a bunch of rules, and I’m sad that I didn’t figure that out sooner.

 

I still find studying anatomy an absolute blast, regardless. 

 

It’s tempting to upload *everything* I’ve done that I like, but I’ll pace myself.  I truly hope you all enjoy my efforts. It’s been a good two years of pushing myself further than ever before, replacing traditional art with digital for good. 

 

AND NOW! ART.

 

I do not take requests or commissions at this time.

My main men Aberrant the snakehorseman and Kyzaro the griffon!

Thank you!! I certainly will, I rather have hopes to bring my designs to something bigger and more professional eventually 👀

Couple more pieces. I got a significant backlog to get through, but I’ll start puttin more newer stuff in here.

a rough design sheet for a Manticore character, and a quick dragon doodled up just before bed!

More anatomy!

 

Taking creature designs I’ve made and drawing a skull accordingly. These are all weird creatures from a world I created, where realism played a larger role.

Revenants! These pained and horrifying creatures have a dark backstory. They are extremely violent.

Referenced a number of unusual skulls. Congenital defects, unusual hybrids, disease, or just strange-looking critters. Triggerfish got weird teeth.

Doodle I made for a friend 💕

An experimental reversal of my usual critter design workflow! Beginning from the skull, I worked my way up. Fabulous way to see how well I know my anatomy.

These two are speedpaints, done in 40 minutes or less, of scenes in a story I’m writing. Good way to learn more efficient methods, maybe one day my speedpaints will look like fully polished works 👀

A friend suggested that it’s a hydra and there’s like seven more heads hidden in the mist, good cue to run away really fast

 

Monster Hunter was the game series that really hooked me into creature design. Still my in my top two most favourite game series. So I drew a quick Rajang! He’s preparing to punch a fool in the face (pov u’r the fool)

This man gives off Monster Hunter vibes. How many carves does he have? 😏 10/10, would repel solo with longsword

 

Your art is so cool! I find your fantasy anatomy/biology ones fascinating, also!

just for fun monster hunter fanart of my favourite thunder doggo Zinogre, donning his armour and his hunting horn. Definitely don’t think about how any of this doesn’t make sense.

thank you!! its an area i never stop improving in, there’s so much to learn 🥹

 

And since its been a few months here’s some more art. There’s been a noticeable evolution in my style over the last few months, not that i can show it off proper because my internet speed is so bad right now it’s a minor miracle i can even get these smaller pieces uploaded 😭
