Inspirational creature design!
« on: November 07, 2006, 04:47:54 pm »
I was browsing the web(http://forums.cgsociety.org/index.php?) and stumbled upon a certain concept artist named Alex Ries and found his webiste, it's loaded with an awesome creature-design gallery!!  It makes me drool and now I'm itching for spore again!  I figured this might interest some of you who like designing your own creatures and could offer some inspiration.

here's his site:

I like it. Especially this one: http://www.alexries.com/Gallerypages/gal-MSI.htm

That's how I want my creature profiles to look in the Sporepedia.

Is there an official "Art that reminds me of Spore" thread? If not, we should make one and merge all of it together.
