How to Draw a Concept Creature by Josh B

Artist: Dawn / May 29, 2014

Step 1.

You will begin by drawing the guides to make a frame for this concept creature. Start with a head, torso and pelvic guides, then draw in the arm and facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Define the shape of the head like so, then move to step three.

Step 3.

Here you will draw a lens that acts as the face for this creature. It almost looks like an old divers mask or helmet.

Step 4.

Then, draw the right arm as well as the cracks on the creature's helmet. Take your time and work slowly if you're a beginner.

Step 5.

After you've finished the previous step, work on the right bicep and forearm. Again, take your time with this step as there is many strange shapes and curves for the arm.

Step 6.

Let's work on the tri-fingered hand that is similar to scissors. Start with the thumb (I always do) then work your way to the two other fingers.

Step 7.

Then, finish off the arm by sketching the details that complete the arm.

Step 8.

Now it's time to work on the left arm. This arm was a little complex because it's the opposite side and has to look similar to the right. Drawing the bicep should be easier since we're drawing it such an angle.

Step 9.

Then, work on the forearm and the palm. Take your time!

Step 10.

Finish this arm by sketching the tri-fingers as well.

Step 11.

Sketch all the little details and you're ready to draw the rest of the body!

Step 12.

Work on the chest plate first, then the piece that forms the back.

Step 13.

Then we'll start working on the waist outlines. Once you've drawn the outlines, you can then work on the inner details which make the wiring for the stomach.

Step 14.

Before we form the legs, we must draw the two attaching pipe like shapes.

Step 15.

Next, let's work on the legs. This looks like a lot of work (and it is). Draw the left leg first by sketching the outline before you add the smaller defining details.

Step 16.

Then, sketch the wing and don't forget to add a few rips and tears here and there.

Step 17.

Start working the top of the wing as well.

Step 18.

Then sketch the extreme amount of tears in the wing.

Step 19.

Let's start working on the last wing by drawing the shoulder for it.

Step 20.

Then finish by sketching the individual powering wires that connect the wing and body together.

Step 21.

Once you're finished, you should have something similar to this! I hope you guys have enjoyed this tutorial, it was a lot of fun to make!

Description: So this is a concept character that was originally created by Josh B. I did this because I really wanted to make a cool drawing and Josh's character looked pretty cool. I don't know what to say about this lesson because all I did was redraw something that someone else created. Here is how to draw a concept creature by Josh B. Have fun and leave all the comments for Josh since this came from his head.
