Programs: Photoshop, Max
This would qualify as a more "finished" speed painting, but it still only took me about 5 hours. The image is all hand painted except for the lower tentacles which are simple 3d painted over in photoshop. The creature looks something like an ambulatory stingray, of course I had to throw in the giant teeth filled mouth. I'd hate to be marooned on a planet and have this thing walk out of the swirling dust, or worse yet a whole flock of them.
