ArtOrder Challenge - Mutation Nation

If you missed the buzz, Jon Schindehette has a new challenge up over on ArtOrder: Mutation Nation! The folks over at Wizards of the Coast are knee deep in getting the new Gamma World ready for release later this year. The ArtOrder challenge allows you to either design a mutant creature or an anthropomorphic character (make sure you head over to ArtOrder to get all the details). Jon had me at 'Mutant'. I of course took path #1, gene spliced creature, so I present to you my Scuttling Grizzly, a combination of blue crab and bear...

But I cound not stop there... I have already finished my second painting of another mutant creature and I about to get started on my third. I can't stop... too many ideas coming too quickly. Only one design can be submitted for the challenge, so I pick this one, but I will continue on the others for myself.

I will bring you my second creation next week and most likely some of my drawings that went into these. Until then...

For more samples of my work or to contact me regarding my availability head over to my website: www.christopherburdett.com

  13. Thanks Jon :) It should be a great turn out. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

    Though I can't be held responsible if the scuttling grizzly breaks free of it's restrains and eats anything. They are veracious!

  14. That thing is insane! The head/mouth is terrifying haha. I really like the colors and textures of the painting itself too.
