Hey everyone, I'm new around here. My name is Jerod and I'm a creature/character artist working out of the Pacific NW.
I decided it was time to start my own WIP thread as I've seen so many benefit from this amazing community!
This thread will house my personal work and studies taken to various levels of finish. Some works may only live as sketches.
Comments and Critiques welcomed!

The design came from the graphic novel the Witch Doctor - http://www.witchdoctorcomic.com/
I love this twist on the classic tale of the Vampire aka the "Vamprey". Clever how they use the biology of a parasite to explain a well known myth.
Stills- 1 pass of details after the time lapse at the bottom.
Wanted to see how the skin was "fleshing out" so I got a quick diffuse sprayed on him with spotlight/polypaint.
I will give the textures more attention later, I was just tired of looking at clay.
The Parasite itself has been reworked quite a bit. Scaled it much larger inside Vlad's mouth, and reexamined how the arms/claws functioned. New teeth as well.
Lukas! I'm really stoked you found my thread. I was fully planning on tracking down your email somehow and sending you Finished stills... Looks like you'll get to follow along as he progresses now
I really appreciate you registering just to leave me a comment! If you don't mind me asking, how did you find my thread?
Your drawings are totally amazing and really inspired me to make this guy in 3D!!
