Hey folks, Happy Father's Day! Especially to those dads out there. Here's the next concept for my rebirth of Half Life, for those that have played the original game, the Gonarch is the creature responsible for the creation of the Headcrabs we all know and love.  I wouldn't consider this a redesign, but a rebirth of what should be an important part of the game because of its function. One of the things I wish there had been a little more of Half Life 2 would be wildlife, so I imagined that when the Headcrabs are born, they probably start with animals first, which from a designer's perspective could make for some very interesting creatures. Thanks for the look and more to come!
Hey there, long time no scary. Creature under the stairs. Great opportunity to explore my worst fears as a kid.
Thanks for the love on "Kelp Fight"! So what you guys saw earlier was a pre-revision final. This is how it turned out for the client.
So much crap in the news these days, I wanted to think about something that made me happy. Have to say my dream job right now would be to conceptualize for Half Life 3. As most of us know that will probably not happen. So my question is, is it still fan art is there is no original? Think I'll be doing a few of these. This here is the Zombie Bezerker. He's so powerful, all the head crabs want to be him, but he's too powerful for them. Fun concept. More to come hopefully.

Well, it's official, hit 2500 watchers today. :D I cannot thank you all enough for showing interest in my measly existence. I promised myself that once I reached that milestone I would ramp up the production, and submit a hell of a lot more art. Gonna be busy for a while.

Thank you all again so much. Here's to the next 2500! Cheers!

I love your artwork its so beautiful awesome and interesting in how it all looks I like the alien animals as there just so imaginative in how you've designed I too am in to this style of art but within the form of clay and I would appreciate it if you could have a look at my work and see if there's anything you like but again good work keep it up

just found your DA, so cool to find the one behind the dossiers of ARK!!! love your designs, they're so much better then the in-game versions. also, one question, kentrosaurus wasn't the last, now that we have yutyrannus, but. is yutyrannus the last? are there more surprises to come? and, can you tell what else's planned?
Davesrightmind Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2017
Thanks Luis, pleasure to meet you. Unfortunately our studio has been off of Ark for about 3 months now. I did not design the Kentrosaurus or the Yutyrannus, (actually, I think their designs are not that great, but I may be a little bitter about it ;) ), I believe they're using an in house artist now for the designs because it's cheaper. So, I couldn't tell you. It was a good two and a half year ride but things often change in the world of game design. Glad you enjoy the game though!

ohhhh, that's awful, their designs could have been better then, unless they changed them -.- . Your dilophosaurus is way better, I hate that stupid frill. I don't care about JP/JW, why didn't they go with your ORIGINAL designs -.-'.
Other than ARK, all your creatures look awesome, some of them I can't even tell what they are or where you got the imagination from, I love it XD.
Good luck with whatever you're doing right now ^^

Thanks a bunch! I'm considering doing some fan art of those two dinos and submitting it to the Steam site. Just to see what would happen. ;)

I am so, so, so, so, so amazed by your artworks! I love every single one of them they are a true masterpiece!Marco Is Amazed Emote 

You are probably sick of those questions but do you have/could you make a coloring-tutroial video? like, when you draw your next creature just make a video how you color it or smth.. of course you dont have to if you dont want to or don't have time or smth Icon Ummm 
Well, have a nice day!
Davesrightmind Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2017
Thank you so much! That's a great question. I have been meaning for the longest time to put together a video, but haven't really nailed down the best way to do it. My knowledge of some technology is severely lacking, especially when it comes to video. I'l eventually figure it out, hopefully in the near future. Really glad that you like my work! Appreciate it. You have a nice day as well. :D

But take your time, I can wait ^w^
