    shiiK: Neat idea, I think you should play more on that description you quoted, though. The colour scheme isn't complete (there's no contrast) and there's no indication of muscle - it's looks pretty much like a giant flesh-heap wrapped in randomly burnt skin. Define the muscles, and find a way to add some good contrast colours. The yellow hairs do not fit in at all.

    Looks pretty awesome, I'll have a closer look tomorrow. There are a few things that come to mind though. If they're skinless and dripping with blood, shouldn't they be bloody? This looks like it has very pale, perhaps thin, skin, but it's not skinless. I like that, though, I'm just comparing to your description here. Also, even though it's rather irrelevant to the art, how do they locate their enemies and how do they communicate with each other (considering they can be found in groups)? Purely by smell? I mean, they can make sound but not hear it - unless they have something that picks up sound waves without hearing it, but being able to navigate by sending out waves and letting them bounce back (sort of like bats)? I'm curious, really. Finally, what is the stamp for? Is that your signature, or does it mean these beasts are domesticated?

    Extensive review:

    * Shading
    The shading could use some more work. There are dark spots that should've been highlighted rather than shadowed and vice versa. The shadows are also very harsh, there's no transition. His ribs are both highlighted and shadowed, but they're under his body and should generally be darker than parts of his body that is exposed to the sun. What strikes me the most, though, is that there's no muscle definition at all.

    * Colour
    Skintone works well for the image you're trying to create, but you're using white and black as shading, which makes it look quite ugly. White is mainly used for very shiny parts and in small portions. There's white everywhere on this. Same goes for black. Try to use full colour schemes for your shading. The green-yellow, greasy hair doesn't fit in, in my opinion, you should've gone with a complementary colour to your skintone. Oh, and what's the peach coloured stuff on his horns?

    * Concept
    I think it's pretty generic and boring. It could be useful for some kind of project, though, so I'll let it slide.

    * Detail
    Most of the detail seem pretty random, and it's really lacking in variation and definition. It's an interesting touch with the stamp, though, but what does it mean?

    * Wrap
    Works decently, not much to comment on.

    I think the symbol thing should be on their heads. It will make more sense. Also it a bit bland.

    This looks really cool. I wonder how it would look with blood on those spikes or something like that instead of that rusty brown thing. If you can make a different skin version like that which looks a little bit more like zombie horror, for example that blood on the spikes or something.

    What is that red mark on the side? If you do a zombie version of this skin maybe the mark shouldn't be there.
