Deathclaw charge  
I'd like to welcome my members, all two of you. Looks like we might have a slow start but that's always how these things are. I'm quite excited about this place and have loads of art in the works. I still need to make a better profile page with a nice background so that's something I need to think about. Anyway, here's one of my drawings for now.

Click for full size.

This is usually the last thing people see when they get a good view of a Deathclaw close up. They are incredibly fast and powerful. Coloring him was a bit of a challenge as I'm new to using a tablet. Don't know if I'll ever get used to it. I've been a mouse artist for many years. The background was fun to make and I really wanted to give this a sense of danger and speed.

I'm working on my second picture so hopefully I can start to color that one today.

Dude, thats cool. The way you drew it, the coloring, the pose. Its all so well done! :) I really like the blurry background.

Though the last I see of a deathclaw is their talons in my face. :/

Aww thank you. I'm very glad you liked him. Hehe yeah ok almost the last thing you see. I have an idea to make another one and give it a 3D effect so it looks like his claws are in your face as he slashes. If I can pull it off I'll make it into my Welcome icon as I really need one. I'm glad you like his colors too. I made him darker than they are in the game. And though I prefer darker for the more sinister look, it does bug me he's not quite accurate. I'm picky with my own art. ;P

Yup, I remember seeing this in VATS a lot when I went to Olney. The movement looks pretty fluid and the blurry background really adds to the dynamic pose. Very menacing. :)

I was thinking of doing some deathclaw fanart myself sometime, though I'm not sure how good it will be since I'm used to just drawing people.

Thank you. I'm glad it reminded you of VATS. That's what I was going for.

If you do decide to tackle one please share. I'd like to see it. You know it's funny because most of my friends are animal artists and can't draw humans. So it's new for me to hear someone say I just draw people. I like to draw people too. In fact I got into this game because I wanted to use my character Owen in it and it just ended up being so much more for me.
