New-ish art from History Channel Bigfoot Documentary

Dhamindra Jeevan did the concept art for History Channel's Bigfoot: The Definitive Guide.
Above is a bust of Bigfoot.
Dhamindra Jeevan was introduced to us, although not overtly, at Bigfoot Lunch Club we had do do some sleuthing to find the concept artist and recognize the style. 

Mr. Jeevan illustrated several concepts of our favorite hirsute hominids not seen in the History Channels Bigfoot: The Definitive Guide, including the gigantopithecus and the Orang Pendek. 
We thought you would like to see his other illustrations. You can also view his online portfolio.

  1. Nice how he maintains the "boogeyman" foundation for his representations. Since bigfoot is most likely an offshoot of the boogeyman mythology, he needs to have that monstrous, fang-baring, ravenous appearance. The vast majority of bigfoot lore leans heavily on this thing that goes bump in the night, in which case the bump has now become the three wood knocks, and so it is entirely proper for illustrations to have that scary look. Very little of bigfoot lore leans towards the placid, scientifically palatable vision of a long lost ape or real primate.


Let's keep the language and material clean, keep in mind we have younger fans that get their Bigfoot News here too. If your comment is directed specifically to our editor, Guy Edwards, he will personally take time out of his day and ask one of us interns to reply to you in his name.
