Ice Berg, the Winged Ice Wolf by Mad--Munchkin
Ice Berg, the Winged Ice Wolf
More creature concept work, this time with a winged ice wolf, named 'Ice Berg.'

I gave this winged wolf bat wings and horns, but didn't change much else with the body except gave him a longer tail than a normal wolf.

Well...almost.  

I'm all set up, ready to rock and roll.  Just having a few teething proplems with syncing files up for the new update video, so that has been postponed til the 3rd of August instead of today.

In the mean time, I am working on commissions, contracts, portfolio work, live streams, research and studying.  I am in the process of sorting out the IndieGOGO thank you perks but need to catch up on a few projects with dead lines coming up so those take priority right now.

Thank you everyone for your patience and I WILL be posting the update video soon.  

Stay Creative. :D
Peryton by Mad--Munchkin
Peryton
My take on the Peryton, a winged deer.

Also....I'M BACK!!!!

EDIT:

So I've a few comments saying that that my interpretation of a peryton doesn't look much like a winged deer.  Well, here's the thing; why would a deer have wings?  I wanted to make my Peryton a predator, so decided the bird half would be a bird of prey of some sort, modeling it after the a buzzard and the gyrfalcon.  The Buzzard is a dirty brown speckled bird of prey while the gyrfalcon is more silver and white with some speckles of brown on the wings.

It's a predator, a carnivore, so it needed to look intimidating.  The head is a mix of a falcon and a wolf, with an elongated sharp peak and wolf ears.

The antlers are that of the Cairn Gorm Mountain rein deer which has more of a hunched stance than most deer, and due to its harsh surroundings of being a mountain deer species, these deer have longer and fluffier fur than the common forest deer.  These are used for fighting off other Peryton, but also used to portray its age depending on how many prongs are on each antler.  For instance, this Peryton has three pronged antlers, so that makes it six years old.

It made sense to me to have the Peryton be a mountainous creature, it needed a lot of weight and strength to withstand the cold harsh weather, and longer fur to keep the creature warm, while also serving as camoflage.  It needed to be arodynamic, fast on the ground with legs able to grip mountain sides, so the hoofs are actually more like a mountain goat than a deer , with cloven hoofs and two sets of declaws instead of one on each foot.

To me, making a peryton is not just a case of sticking wings on the back of a deer.  Deer aren't built for flight (unless of course they're pulling a sleigh at christms :P ) So I looked at various creatures that are, looked at how they carry themselves.  

It doesn't 'look much like a deer' because its not a deer.  It's a Peryton.  It's not Bambi with wings.

I wanted to give everyone more details describing how the money raised will be used.  Thank you to everyone who donated to the IndieGoGo Campaign and the Team Ok Charity Live Stream.  This money has helped me pay bills, rent, fees that I havn't been able to pay for the last couple of months due to being unable to work, and will also help cover the cost of the IndieGoGo perks I will be sending out to you guys over the next few weeks.  This money will also help pay to replace my computer as well as vital equipment to keep my business running.  More details on the computer will be posted in my update video, which will be posted in August once I have the new computer set up;

I am happy to report I ordered my new computer on the 18th of July and should arrive here by the 27th of July.  I aim to be up and running by the 28th and hopefully will have an update video ready by the 1st of August.  After this video is posted I will be catching up on commissions, contracted work and other art pieces I have not been able to complete.

I will also be donating a percentage of the money raised to the Charity 'Caring Hands' which will be donated to the charity on the first week of August.  For more information on this charity follow this link- www.oasischurchelgin.co.uk/com…

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE INDIEGOGO PERKS

I have sent out emails to everyone who donated to Indiegogo and chose perks.  If you have not received the email, this journal entry will give you instructions on what to do in order to successfully receive your perks.  (Please note this only applies to you if you chose the 'ALL OF THE ABOVE + VIDEO PERK)  As I have not received a lot of replies, I am concerned the email was not seen or read by some of you so I am posting instructions here instead.

For anyone who chose the Badge Perk, your postal address should have been entered on Indiegogo when donated, so you should receive your badge successfully at some point during August.  I will post here on deviant art, and on the Mad Munchkin face book when I have dispatched these badges.

The Art described in the Indiegog Perk should not be confused with commissions.  These art pieces are NOT COMMISSIONS.  These are Indiegogo Exclusive art pieces which will only be available to those who donated to Indiegogo.  These are DIGITAL COPIES free of water mark, so you mayuse these however you see fit.  (use your common sense of course, replication or plagiarism will not be tollerated.) These may also be available to purchase at future conventions, but will not be available to purchase online in either of my shops.  Sorry for any confusion or inconvenience caused.

The Video Perk- This perk is going to be a lot of fun, but its also going to be very time consuming.  These videos can be about anything, as long as it relates to art and animation in some way.  In other words, to all you bronies; IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE RELATED TO MLP!  :p  (I'm more than a one trick pony...haha)  

If you chose the 'ALL THE ABOVE PLUS VIDEO' perk, please reply to the email that was sent to you.  Alternatively you can send me a private note here on deviant art, but if you do so, please include your email address so I can confirm you are one of the donaters  who chose the video perk.  Please email me at; amy.methven.art@hotmail.co.uk if you chose the video perk but did not receive the email in question.  If you use a different email, please include the email address used when you donated so I can confirm I get the perks to the right people.

Thank you everyone for your support.  If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

I'm Mad Munchkin, Stay Creative.

Welcome to Amy Methven's Deviant Art Page. Here you can view all of my recent and popular artwork, as well as information on how to get a commission from me.

Terms and Conditions (Important. Please read!)

What I will and will not draw;

I will draw anything that the client asks me to as long as it doesn't breach any of the following;
I provide a service that guarantees the client exactly what they ask for. I also run an SFW (Safe For Work) policy. Anything I am asked to draw must be PG13 suitable.

I will not draw anything that might suggest or imply;
Drug or substance abuse including alcohol, sex and nudity or extreme violence.

If I am asked to draw a subject that goes against my moralistic views or may represent controversial political content of any kind, I respectfully decline to draw it.


How to get a Commission:

Step 1: Contact the Artist by email at: amy.methven.art@hotmail.co.uk (please ensure you have read the full list of what is available to you prior to getting in touch with me.)

Express your interest in a commission by contacting the artist prior to paying anything, explaining your idea for your commission. Once decided on which option you desire and what add ons you wish to add, the artist will send you a quote of the total cost to confirm the customer is happy with what they have asked for.
The client must contact the artist before paying the deposit to avoid any confusion and misunderstandings.

Step2: Pay an upfront deposit.

Any and all commissioned work, both digital and traditional requires an upfront deposit of £10.00 British Pound Sterling. This reassures the client that the artist is fully committed to the commission. Please note the deposit is deducted from the total amount due upon completion. Any Add ons the client wishes must be asked for before the deposit is paid. Any add ons are included in the total Quote and is the final agreed cost. After the deposit is made, add ons can not be purchased. If the client changes their mind and no longer wants the commission but has already paid the £10 deposit, the deposit is non refundable.

Step 3: Correspond with the Artist

The bonus of buying a commission is that the client has the opportunity to discuss their idea with the artist on a one to one basis might that be through email, or instant messaging. This is to ensure the artist and the client is on the same page during the creation of the piece.

Step 4: The artist sends the client preliminary sketches based on the description of what the client has asked for.
I like to include the client on the whole process and development of what they’ve asked me to do so the client can follow the progress and give feed back on the piece.

Step 5: Upon completion, the client pays the remaining total cost.

The digital JPEG of the final piece is sent to the client for confirmation. Once the client has confirmed they are satisfied with the commissioned piece, the client pays the remaining cost to the Artist.

For full instructions on how to get a commission, follow the link below to view the 'Mad Munchkin Art and Illustration Price list and use the contact details provided.
