Aussie artist Alex Ries used to work for THQ, until THQ decided it couldn't afford an Australian studio anymore.
Since then, he's been doing other stuff. What's great about Alex's work is that, unlike most other artists we feature here, he has an interest in zoology and biology, and an ability to create new species that look, well, entirely new.
If you'd like to see more of his work, you can check out Alex's portfolio here.
