Greb the swamp creature: An old favourite

Materials: Drawn in pencil then inked with a fine liner, scanned ito Photoshop and painted.

Inspired by Dexter Jetster From Star Wars episode II Attack of the Clones. Dexter has Four arms whereas Greb has Two and there really aren't many similarities. I liked the way Dexter's weight was illustrated through his movement. I loved the texture of his skin, his muscle tone and how his folds of fat seemed real. I tried to convey that Greb is aquatic and has elements of a frog (facial features and neck) and an alligator (armoured back.) I wanted his skin to look softer on the front but more scaly and hard round his joints and fingers etc. I hope you enjoy it.
