Kark - Man's Best Friend

I had the pleasure of working on a book cover this year.  The book is called Man's Best Friend (by LJ Stamm and RJ Evanovich) and has a pretty freakin' sweet storyline.  Check it out at

This is a colored version of the Kark I posted earlier.  I really liked the description of this creature so I decided to do a fanart; lo and behold, it was used for the back cover!

Sketch Pages 573-574

Aww I've posted so very little images for this month.  Work has been taking up a good chunk of my time.  I've noticed that I have a hard time working on personal stuff while having a job where I draw all day.  Not that I mind; my job is awesome. <3

For some reason I really want to play with color.  I'd like to take these two sketches and give em a go in Photoshop.  Maybe play around with a blue-black/brown/yellow color scheme for the gryphon.

Sketch Pages 571-572

 The top page is fan-art/web-art for Man's Best Friend, a book for which I created cover art.  This beastie is called a Kark and I think it's adorably terrifying.  Oh btw, this particular Kark measures 25 ft in length, 10 ft at the crest of it's back, and 15 ft wide. ;D

The bottom page has some reference studies for the Kark.
