Default Model for CgTalk Challenge "races of middle earth"

Well here's a concept drawing for a race I designed that would live in Middle Earth... I just wish CgTalk started this challenge a week ago. I would have used the same creature Im doing for here =).


Anyway let me know what you all think. I called the race "Tumahs"

Very cool! You're a really good 2D artist. Wish I was that good.

Here's my next one:



Oh, I just realized that you might want to keep this thread just for your model... do you want me to make my own thread for this? :p

I figured maybe it was a CGTalk challenge thread or something. lol

The top 3 get a free book, while 1st place gets something in addition.... like a free texture pack or something. Not really sure. :p
