Continuing my series of fantasy creature concepts, I am ready to present “Waldo.”

Waldo began life as a very rudimentary sketch (which can be seen in My Sketchbook). When I say very “rudimentary sketch” I mean VERY RUDIMENTARY.  I wanted to create a “horse-like” beast, because I will be using this model in a future illustration. Waldo was created in ZBrush, with the final composite produced in Photoshop.

In the above image, Waldo “hams it up” for the camera.

If you would like to see the creation process, I have recorded it and the video can be viewed here.
