The Beast of Mona
Since Monarobot drew one of my creatures (… ) I decided to return the favor and draw their logo monster with a full body.
Follow Monarobot on Tumblr and Twitter cause HOTDAMN they are excellent!

No glow version:…
Garden Akephaloi
"They descended from the Gargoyles that once watched over the royal garden, but due to a failure lost to time they were punished with decapitation. As ages passed, erosion took their wings, and the slumber of stone was lost to them. Now they are things of flesh, Akephaloi, blindly crawling through the wild and abandoned garden, hunting for intruders."
Land of Scales: Magnalania (Meiolania Gigantos)
 Magnalania are tanky herbivores, grazing on  a number of low ground vegetation in the forest and fields of the island. They are a large cousin of the Meiolania species of turtle, and the only living member of that family. A mean bite, tough shell, and hefty club tail have ensured they stayalive while assaulted by various predators. They are only truly vulnerable in their youth, but in some cases large Tyrants have learned to kick over Magnalania and bite at the exposed areas of the under belly.
Males have a unique pattern of spots upon their shell with yellow highlights, while females keep a generally stoney dull colour.
Dark Crystal Creature contest entry 2: Trituan
Now that the Dark Crystal Creature Contest is over and the winner announced, I can finally share my entries.
Im not too bummed by the loss, it was fun to try and nail the aesthetic of Dark Crystal down.

The concept of the Trituan was a very simple squabbling creature, simply hanging out on tree branches and munching on acorns. Males often have push-up contest in the canopy to prove themselves.
I pictured the puppet being a rod puppet. Either each leg had a stick attached to move it, or a single stick would be  attached below the main body to give it a push up motion.
Dark Crystal Creature contest entry 1: Wilibig
Now that the Dark Crystal Creature Contest is over and the winner announced, I can finally share my entries.
Im not too bummed by the loss, it was fun to try and nail the aesthetic of Dark Crystal down.

The concept of the Wilibig was it is a remnant of the dinosaur equivalents of the Dark Crystal world. They take thousands of years to grow up, so the last babies to hatch from such ancient times are still babies.
I pictured it being a hand puppet just sitting on a rock or log, with its ears flopping in expression.
No Longer Man's : Othrys
At around 3000 feet tall, Othrys was the first and largest of the Vastators encountered by humanity. Emerging from the Pacific ocean in 1962, Othrys baffled the world in both terror and awe. It crawled upon the shores of Asia, seeking energy to feed upon (from Thermal to nuclear) and nothing could stand in it's way.

 It dragged itself upon ten molar like feet under it's mass, and hunted for resources with it's six tendrils, acting like heads, tasting the atmosphere for power. It's shell had been built up by numerous minerals over millennia, making it virtually indestructible. The only openings were it's cooling vents and waste vents and the "mouth" of the shell that split open to cool it's core when feeding. Much like it's successors, Othrys produced an invisible cloud of microbes around it's body which selectively leeched nutrients and energy from any source available. This made approach difficult, as those that dared would be devoured cell by cell.

After many years of destruction, Othrys met it's end in 1969 on Hawaii, impaled and ruptured by the experimental orbital weapon, the Ballistic Bomber. Unfortunately the end was actually the beginning, as the creature's extreme biology held so much power, the body exploded with enough power to triumph over any atom bomb. The explosion disintegrated much of Hawaii and irradiated the waters surrounding it, not to mention nearly all just out of range of the blast were blinded by the light or made deaf by the boom. But it did more than that, it awoke other creatures of it's like, the Vastators, and started the new era of monsters.
Osanjira Godzilla
Just wanted to play with a Godzilla design idea.

I picture Osanjira as a godzilla thats a mix of legendary's ancient force of nature and Shin's aberration. I used a mix of whale (hump back especially) and Giant Japanese Salamander as my basis for this design. In  fact the name "Osanjira" is a mix of the japanese word for the Giant Salamander (Ōsanshōuo) and whale (kujira).
His body is more built for a quadruped stance he normally travels upon, but when threatened he stands upright. His radioactive breath is more similar to the 54 godzilla, boiling water within his body and spewing the intense radioactive steam upon a threat.
Random nerd issue here!

So I've been in a AVP mood recently and thus looking up all the neat-o fan art for it. Most are pretty awesome, but one thing has been bugging me.
Why do we assume the predators we've seen are male, or that they even have different sexes?

Like, most of the attempts at female predators i've seen have breast and birthing hips because thats apparently the only way to identify females in alien species. But their like, wierd humanoid reptilian bug faced things.

It just seems so odd.

I personally had the headcannon that their neither male nor female, but can play roles we consider sex specific. Similar to hemaphroditic snails, they fight for who will bare young and who will deliver sperm or sperm equivelant. The winner gets to be the "male" and the loser "female", having to carry the fertilized eggs for a time until layed at a defendable location.

Maybe they've just skipped out on this entirely in favour of cloning or something.

Then again does it matter, we just wanna watch'em drop onto planets and fight people and aliens like cool guy monster mashs.


Quinn-Red's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
Hi, I'm a self taught (non-professional) artist. My gallery consist of monsters (mostly original, some fan art) of many sorts, all with a story or concept to join them.
Giant monsters make up much of my work as their one of my favorite concepts, mostly due to a childhood chuck with godzilla flicks.
Spec Evo stuff use to be a major part of my art, but its become less of a focus for me.
Horror is another favorite genre, especially sci fi like the Alien series, filled with unique creatures and ideas that im oh so enamored by.
Fantasy is a genre im in and out of but occasional DND sessions have made me more eager to delve into such material.
