Hey everyone,
Quiescent Greenman Regular Legend of the Cryptids by MIKECORRIERO Quiescent Greenman Advanced Legend of the Cryptids by MIKECORRIERO Corrupted Samael Advanced Legend of the Cryptids by MIKECORRIERO
I try to remember to post here on DA as often as possible. Though generally there are other places I post first and more regularly so if you're interested, you can follow my work updates there. Though with how much I generally have going on, I usually forget to update my albums here. So I stick to a few other spots.
I post reference photos/inspirational imagery and information along with my art and sometimes links to other artists I like on my public facebook page which you can check here: FACEBOOK PAGE -…

I post similar and non-related posts regarding videos, music, movies, my artwork, notes, advice, tips etc. On my Twitter feed if you'd like to follow my updates: TWITTER -

In addition, one other way you can check my artwork out and strictly just my artwork alone is if you follow Tumblr blogs. You can check mine out here: TUMBLR -

So that's all and I hope everyone is staying creative and busy and hard at work. I hope to see you all around, but as mentioned, those are 3 spots I generally hit up most regularly before I find my way back around to Deviantart.

I'd appreciate anything at all, I'll put it toward a premium membership. Currently having some health issues, so money is a big issue.
I'm not one to ask for anything free so that may explain how hard I've been having it this past year and a half. Thanks in advance.

are you a biggest fan of all illustrations?
I enjoy all genres, not just sci-fi, fantasy, horror..creatures or concept art. All art captures my attention and inspires me in various ways.

Hey I just wanted to say I love your creature concept work! Very good job :'D
Thanks, I appreciate the compliment! :)
Where'd you go to draw like this cuz i have similar crazy animal hybrid ideas but my art skills probably would black out the actual idea some creature i want to improve are the Fraf for instance scythe arms and feet enabling quick and easy hunts, short body to give it a small but deadly look, forward facing fangs for easy blood draining and a alien "triple eye"
Just many years of trial and error, personal studies, sketching, researching online, in books, video documentaries, looking at real world animal skeletons, movement, surface anatomy, texture, color etc..
It's a culmination of everything I've loved and surrounded myself with since I was 5 years old. I've been drawing creatures for about 25+ years, so you begin to better understand how to construct original designs from scratch (based on real world elements).
