My best work to date, created in some sort of fever-induced art frenzy. Started with a Dunkleosteus fossil as reference then just kinda went wild trying to make it look cool. I'm pretty happy with the result!

I forgot to mention this in the description, but yes! The piece was for a short informal contest, and one of the restrictions was that the piece had to be mirrored.

Workflow-wise, I tried to keep both sides up-to-date with one another as I worked because I figured it would be hard to visualize properly otherwise. To that end, I duplicated the minor edits and grabbed/flipped/pasted the bigger ones (In GrafX2, that's [g], [b], drag, [x], click, [g], [delete]. It's a lot to write down, but quick in practice).

Looks great. Am I guessing correct that you built a side and mirrored it? One consideration is to create a copy of this and add some dithering/texturing to the surface of the creature's head. It might come out really cool. ;)
