The Making of Creature A - MonstersByEmail sample by Cloister The Making of Creature A - MonstersByEmail sample by Cloister
Since some people don't click the links, I will add these step-by-steps to Deviant Art as well. Perhaps a few more can benefit from them that way.

However, if you want more creature design insight, print-resolution creature art, or RPG-friendly stats and descriptions to your creatures, I suggest you check out MonstersByEmail. com. [link]

(Here is another one...)

You can buy the commented steps of 20 more creatures here: [link]

its a very good process.

tiny question - how does it avoid slipping and sliding (of the forelegs) on any surface - the hooks/toes appear to point upwards.

Hehe. You might be right there.. we shall have to surmise there is a slightly softer and rough surface in the bend of those front legs. Mountain goats do really well with tiny hooves... (best I can do ;)...)

my original thought was "is it inspired by giant sloths and terrestrial (nonhuman) primates?" (neither group walks on the flat of their hands - the ground sloths didn't even walk on the flat of their feet)

best of luck in the future to you.

This is an absolutely fantastic tutorial and look into lighting and shading. It's a great look into making any design more realistic.
