    Anthis: Great work with the mouse. I used to have to do everything with a mouse

    Maths82: I love the stance of your dog. It almost looks like it wants to play....in a rough way.

    Great topic

    Anthis: very cool motion on your creature! and with a mouse too, nice!
    maths82: festive yet deadly. Nice colours.
    Arteater: that scared me a little when it first loaded. =) The in-your-face effect worked quite well!

    This took way too many hours, somehow lost a lot of the sketched details as I was putting in the colours. But here it is, must...resist...further...changes...

    @littlellama : Hard to tell whether its a dog or dude (as is mine I guess ;P). Your time would probably be better spend nailing the form/perspective, then detailing for hours. IMO anyway.

    Arteater: I think I wet my self a lil ;P
    Littlellama: nice looking tank fu? I think its a tank looking @ the chest piece.
    Scumworks: put dat Fu on a laser leash! look pretty angry

    here's the original pencil sketch I did, it seemed to have more form than my final coloured version somehow. =/

    Any tips on how I could have better coloured it would be greatly appreciated!!!

    DSG 1312: Sci-Fantasy: CYBER CORP. GROUNDS ARE PATROLLED BY MECHANIZED FU LIONS (獅)


    scumworks: you're right, I need to do that more, that is a bad habit of mine, detailing a piece before the form is correct. Though in this case, my poor colouring didn't help, since it erased alot of form and detail from my pencil sketch. I guess I have a lot to learn about general composition still!
    Love the scene so quickly formed in your sketch, I need to learn how to do that. Though the lion seems to be more western than a fu lion, in the traditional sense anyhow.

    jicks: love the fluidity of your creature, though it looks so lovable that it looks like a guard puppy instead. Reminds me of an adult pokemon =) Would have liked to see how you would have coloured it too, to see more of the cyber parts to it.

    songspinner: Cool design, can really see the Fu-ness in it, the metallic covering and lasers and flames are a nice touch! Though perhaps the middle laser glare could be sharper and more precisely circular to give it a more lasery look. Also love the use of the traditional swirl pattern in both your decals and the flames, brings out the essence of the topic very nicely.

    goran: Cool design, definitely looks very sleek and effective in guarding. Though not very Fu-lion like. Each individual part has been shaded perhaps the overall body could be shaded to give it more dimension though.

    hope this helps!

    also, try attaching the image in your post directly. It's the yellow insert image icon when you type a message...
    here's your direct image link...

    Took way to long. More experimenting with dig painting, but still having fun. My first animal type pic.

    DSG 1312: Sci-Fantasy: CYBER CORP. GROUNDS ARE PATROLLED BY MECHANIZED FU LIONS (獅)

    Anthis-Awesome work especially for a mouse.
    mathis82-Reminds me of Voltron lions, very nice.
    Arteater-Loose and readable, nice head shot.
    littlellama-Looks very nice, maybe a little to much smoke.
    scumwork-really like the style and feel of the pic
    jicks-b/w looks nice
    songspinner-nice side view, very robotic
    glottis-not crappy at all, myabe just a little cropping is all it needs

    haha thanks, me and my feeble attempt to cover up my quick sucky finish. =)

    Your lion is so cute, perhaps you can add some sharper highlights and scratch marks to make it more metallic. I suddenly thought of the movie "Little Nicky" =)

    Littlellama: Love your lion, he looks solid!.
    scumworks: Great idea with the guard, patrol.
    Jicks: Smooth style
    songspinner: I would stay clear of that lion, looks like trouble.
    erniesthings: I agree with littlellama on the highlight idea, Flame tip tails rock!
    tmyohlaing:Almost looks Egyptian , nice stance.

    This was a great topic, are you aloud to do more than 1 per session?

    Jemooky: cool structure on the head, love the green glow/flame things, adds a nice touch without overwhelming, the chest piece decal's light decal edge is a nice touch too, though the perspective looks a bit off for it. Would have liked to see how you would draw out the legs too! Background looks a bit flat, because your lion has dimension to it.

    Heh, thanks guys BUt it&#180;s still crap (seriously I can do way better)

    As for me linking the Image... photobucket probably doesn&#180;t allow hotlinking, if I try to, it only shows the link, not the pic...

    And, dunno if it&#180;s a bug in my account or something, I&#180;m not allowed to upload images into this section, which kinda sucks

    so I went for plan C

    Thanks for the help though

    you just have to make sure the URL for the image is correct, after you upload an image, it'll give you several URLs to link from, I believe you have to use the first one shown, out of 4 of them.

    littlellama, thanks for your comments on my sketch. There's no doubt that the background looks flat, just because I didn't give it as much love as the lion himself. Putting more depth into my environments is something I should focus on, though, so I'll be much more conscious of it next time.

    Unhappy

    kinda late i guess... also it took me quite long for how it came out
    oh well, just wanted to do some art again after a few months pause... gawd, i hate drawing with the mouse

    i tried a somewhat different technique than usual... avoiding to use round brushes and trying to work a bit with some textures... was too lazy though to play around more with the settings of the brushes, so i just went with default PS settings

    Done with watercolor in a calligraphic fashion. I'd probably would add a silver metallic to the skin if I had more time with it...

    Took me about 15 minutes to come up with the composition and probably 5 minutes to color. Enjoy?

    1 hr. I started with the corporate complex as a background and its a way stronger piece without it. Meh. Buildings are dumb anyway.

    The Yoruken zaibatsu, after being infiltrated by the Shadow Triggers, invested in recently made public suppressor field technology. As to coincide with the companies public image these defensive measures manifested as Forbidden City Fu Dogs.
