CHOW - "Alien Gardener"

Concept I'm working on for the week. It's sort of a bug/plant hybrid creature. Ladybug head, flower garbs, plant tentacles... sort of threw a curveball with the snake body. I might change it. Still need to come up with a way with how it "gardens". I figured it would just go around it's planet (Mars more than likely) spreading spores and seeds creating new plant life.

Snake study

Just a study of a cobra. I wanted to learn how they stand tall. And also how to paint scales using some randomly made-on-the-fly custom brushes. I like overlaying textures in Photoshop and going over them instead of trying to hand paint textures. Just seems like a pain in the butt for workflow. But handpainting is always a good exercise. I've obviously failed, ha.
