I’ve been anxiously waiting for the moment when I could bring to you this magnificent creature! He is the latest addition to my Grotesque Moi! Collection. Perhaps you would like to know more about the Centaurians or Le Roi Chevalier. You can find all that is known of them here on the Grotesque Moi! Home Page. If you would like to own a print or canvas print of him please check out my shop here on my website. He will soon also be available on my RedBubble shop at http://www.redbubble.com/people/xtillos if you would like to collect him on other merchandise.
Posting here first before it goes up on other social media! This is a new video ad that I made for my work for Grotesque Moi!. Everything (including the music) was created by me! If you like my work and want to own a part of it, there are different levels of prints and commissions available here on my website shop. Patreon is another option where you can support at any tier.
As a reminder, please support your favorite artist. It’s easy to assume that they’re ok especially if they’re producing work. Many are struggling because they are not able to make their normal income from conventions and art markets because of the world situation with COVID19. Financial support is best of course but you can help in other ways. Likes, comments and sharing helps bring their work to so many others.
Thank you for being there to help us through a difficult time!
This has been a long time in the making! May I finally Introduce to you Akrep the The Scorpion Warrior! Originally scheduled to be completed in October last year, there have been many trials to bring her forth. True to her nature, every step of the way has been a battle! Every bit of it has been well worth it. She is tough, powerful and deadly! I’m very happy to give you this chance to see her!
When I started seriously drawing, I would find myself drawing creatures. My mom would ask jokingly, “Why are you drawing them uglies?”. I would tell her because it’s what’s in my head and they’re not really ugly. It is just their appearance. Creating creatures has been a part of my art since the beginning. Dragons have always been my favorite but I like to create lots of other mythical creatures, too.
Frequently I’m asked if I can do portrait work. Usually this is while I’m showing examples of my creatures. I decided, “Why not do something that is mutually beneficial? “. Combining the portraits with my creatures! We can each have a part in creating a unique portrait! Grotesque Moi! was born (or more accurately, hatched)!
Grotesque is a French name for the statuary adorning the tops of Gothic architecture. Grotesque is also a description for that which is not what is sometimes considered as normal. The things that found to be odd, disturbing, abhorrent or unnatural. All are somewhat a description of what Grotesque Moi! is about. Taking what is natural and hybridizing it into a fantastically new beautiful creation! Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder.
This is an Illustration project with you the fan and collector in mind. Inside you will find yourself transformed into your favorite fantasy creature! As your guide and illustrator, I will help you find the best hybridized image of yourself as your fantasy creature. When completed you will receive your illustration digitally printed on a 16″ x 20″ canvas ready for you to frame. Each completed purchase of a tier will set aside a block of my time to create your fantasy creature illustration. Below is a breakdown of each tier. There are five levels to choose from. Four are illustration levels and the fifth is for prints when they become available. Please look for details of these tiers represented by the icons below in my store for more information about how to purchase.
I hope everyone is doing well! In this update I have the finished image for the month of March! Let me introduce to you Uila! She is a creature of the night that can create and conduct electricity in the form of lightning bolts and balls. She prefers tall structures to the lower ground levels because she says it’s more peaceful. Uila is a bit of a loner and prefers to nest in theses lofty areas during the day time in her stone form.
Prints are available in my store here on this site. Also, because Uila is a self-commissioned piece, she is available as a canvas print for you to purchase in the store.
For this update I wanted to let you guys know that I finally have both prints of the first two images for Grotesque Moi! up on the store here! Creature #3 is in process and I should have something to post on it soon. Also, please support this project on Patreon at http://www.patreon.com/xtillos so that I can continue to create content for this project outside of any commissions.
