None of this would have been possible without the beautifully inspiring work of Vinod Rams.
The way he draws lines, the angles, the edges, the flow, the grit, the grim, the tendons, the fur, the style. I first came across his uniqueness from the Character Design Blog, now known as the CreatureSpot.com (a MUST see)
I always look to Vinod's work to see something different, mutated, and amazing.
I love it
