Stampede! - Variations on Kingdom Death's Screaming Antelope

So, I've worked on a few Screaming Antelopes recently, with different approaches.

The above is probably the most radical departure from how I tend to paint; while mostly fitting within the styles I usually paint in, I tried to reference the strange illustration of an internally glowing antelope that I think is supposed to be the Mad Steed variant.


This one is almost purely source-lit, heavily emphasizing the dramatic glow. I was also testing out new base designs for these two.

On this one, my client wanted more of an obviously unhealthy look to his Screaming Antelope, so I shifted tone on both the recesses of the lit side and the highlights of the unlit side.
