Welcome to creature atelier!
We are really glad to announce the most anticipated project from us - the creature atelier blog. We will have the task to bring together and present some of the best local concept 2d and 3d creature artists. As first posts here we'll start with presenting the main authors who have started the creature atelier. Our common idea is to design creatures on various topics which we will discuss and develop after that. Our goal is to have fun from the whole thing, to help each other during the development of the concepts, share knowledge, make overpaints on everybody's images and put all of this here. We hope for great start to our first topic so... let's waste no time and may the fun begin!
I just found some very interesting parts of your creatures, so I decide to mixture them from vamp01 and 02. If you have any ideas you can take it and draw over it.

I`ve been drawing for as long as I can remember. Mostly self taught, I was
influenced by computer games as any kid is. I remember drawing scenes inspired from games like Doom, Warcraft and Prince of Persia when i was not in front of the computer playing them. Eventually started work in Masthead Studios where I met the fine examples of bulgarian youth and creative talent that are presented in the Creature Atelier :)
I did several more wolves , some of them look more like a horror squirrel or other kind of rodent, but anyway I had fun while doing these.
I'm waiting to be annihilated from your critique :D

The time has come for creature atelier’s first round ! The theme we choose together is “New-age creatures of the night” . The most well knows representatives of this category are vampires, werewolves ,banshees, the bogeyman, ghouls, but we can chose something that
we are not so familiar with, it only need to be somewhat supernatural creature of evil that shows
itself after dark.
Wait ! I forgot the interesting bit of information that explains the “new-age” at the beginning of the theme. We have to explore a new , fresh idea of a night creature, something that differentiates from the classic look we all are used to see on movies, games and so on. It may be "shadow demonic shapeshifting owl creature" or something else, but the important things to stress on are originality and exploration, strong silhouette, to help each other during the process and most importantly have fun !
Good luck everybody, and don’t forget to post your work in progress so we can discuss them.
briefing: create a new-age supernatural creature of evil that shows itself after dark.
medium: 2d, 3d, mixed, everything is allowed.
deadline: end of July.
emphasis: fresh idea, exploration and collaboration.
