Another book thumbnail preview. Right as the 'photographer' tries to take a pleasant picture of a peaceful forest creature, a Greehound - evolutionarily close to the Gree on the book cover - attacks. The photographer snaps the shot right as the Greehound leaps from the thicket and clenches its long jaw around the unsuspecting victim's neck. Brutal stuff.
I'll be using this image in my demo/tutorial video, from sketch to render techniques. You probably won't see the finished thing, mind you, as this will be in the book. I'll also discuss all the artistic choices here, too. It should be great fun.
