Shimmer by LhuneArt Shimmer by LhuneArt
Creature design for this week's C.o.W. on ConceptART. The brief was a six legged albino speedster and this is what I came up with.

Shimmer:
Not often has an albino creature been given a name of it's own, but this record-breakingly fast yet elegant being has earned itself the nickname "Shimmer". It is called so because most of the time it's seen, it's speed and color make it little more than a shimmering light in the distant heatwaves, like a star traveling across the land. Little is known about Shimmer or it's kin, as sightings are rare and they are easily lost in sandstorms, which local tribes believe are caused by the creatures themselves.

That is freaking gorgeous. It reminds me of delicate runners like greyhounds and deer. Lovely movement, color, and anatomy. Love :happybounce:

I thought this design was really crazy when I first saw it. There are so manny elements to it; the head, mane, multiple legs, that make it look so elegant but completely alien at the same time. I also love the color contrast of the body and surrounding landscape.

I must say, Im extremely impressed by shimmer... hahaha he (or she?) is quite an eye-catcher :)
I personally don't think the lack of others of its kind upsets the overall composition... I think that would take the creatures uniqueness away... if that makes any sense.
so anyway, my point is congratulations on yet another very cool piece of work. ;)
