Illustration Friday - "Save"

ITV in the UK have been runnning a competition to create a creature for their brilliant drama Primeval. I've just submitted my entry, the deadline for entries is April 7th, so if you're interested you'll need to be very quick! Details on the competition can be found here (until the deadline at least).

If you're unfamiliar with Primeval, a rough guide to it would be Doctor Who meets The X-files, Jurassic Park, Stargate and The A Team but whatever it is exactly, it's definitely good fun!

Illustration Friday's theme this week is save... obviously if you were faced with the creature below, you'd be hoping that someone came to save you!


I'm calling it Hyenaman until a better or more suitable name occurs to me (or until a really good one is suggested to me).

On the subject of being saved... Taormina is in need of saving again and if you haven't already visited to see her most recent episode - please do and feel free to comment too! (plug, plug!)

Great job Kevin, great pose and lighting. I'm slightly concerned about it's gender, perhaps some kind of loin cloth would be appropriate, but if you've submitted it for the competition it would be too late for that. Either way it stands a great chance of winning.

That werewolf is awesome. I like it more than the benecio del toro wolf man making the rounds. I think the mostly hairless sort are way freakier than the hairy dog sort.

Anyhow, your whole site rocks. Your style is great.

WOW! Awesome drawing, and the textures! Is this watercolors, or what? Great line work too. Very cool.

Kevin Levell said...

Thanks for the comments everyone - much appreciated.

Paul, I hadn't thought about gender... but now you mention it, oops!

Ryan, this is a digital illustration. I use layers in photoshop and overlay textures to create the effects.

great, but I wish he'd kept his Y-fronts on.

A great character, very scary, nice work. And your Taormina adventures fit perfectly with the theme too (beautiful work as always there).
