    This is the final for this design. I tried to explore different elements with this one. Anyone have any advice on how to paint realistic translucent surfaces that have colour thick liquid inside?

    okaaay...the moleskin is probably filled up right now, best to show us what you made

    Probably just buy a baloon and put thick liquid inside it and hit it with light?

    Hi, great thread.. try and make the liquid's color different than that of the translucent surface.. make it almost an opposite! That way we can check out the parts that have liquid or don't... just a suggestion!

    Meduza:

    Hey there. Sorry I have not been updating much lately, I have been busy writing my dissertation and doing some general project work for university.

    I have found for the liquid and light is 4 layers of cling-film and tide with string. This creates a really interesting shattering effect.

    As for the moleskine, it did become full about a month ago, I will check it out and see if anything is worth showing. Otherwise I am going to begin showing some of my Uni work.

    Thanks for visiting!

    Matsign:

    Thanks Mat! Below is the final design for that creature.

    GriNGo:

    That could make for an interesting design. I might look into that, thanks!

    --------

    I might need to explain what I am about to show before showing it as it may offend someone without an explanation.

    This species I am designing is a symbol of being a victim. This includes any cliché that has been considered a victim of some type in the past. This would include, but not all: female, pregnant, child, disabled, elderly, cattle, suicide bomber (this was a difficult one to put in, but I am trying to be unbiased).

    ± first design decisions.

    ± head designs and also quick thumbnails for a game cover art.

    ± final design for the boneless creature.

    ± this is a painting done with liquitex. First complete illustration and needs some work. I am going to refine it in photoshop so as to tweak it for the game cover.

    Now that my dissertation is nearly out of the way I will be doing a lot more sketches and paintings (hopefully!).

    These are some cool pics, man!
    To define shape a bit easier, I'd try splitting my shaped into planes, kind of like low-polygon 3D models. One of my favorite artists, Euan Uglow does this excellently, you should check him out! I absolutely love his style

    hey again! Thanks for including all the sketches.

    This is interesting, you take all these concepts of victims and turn them into a creature. It's really different. I would of gone for something figurative and iconic, you hurdled all this toward something new.

    The mid ground object begs for you to suggest more depth to it and the flying guy is really hard to make out. Reading that you'll be polishing this, I'm not to worried.

    I began sketching some characters for this project. The first one fits well with his name 'Mayor Milk', but the second seems to fail to fit the 'Minister Rib' name. I might have to include something about ministers into the design.

    Another update:

    ±1: Mayer Milk. Leader of of all the villagers and commands the peasants.

    ±2: Headmaster Rib, peasant who takes command of the slaves.

    ±3: Minister Chuck, another peasant who also take command of the slaves.

    ±4-8: Fine Art pieces. Portraits and self-portraits on the subject of death and despair.

    Sorry I haven't been popping in much. Anyways, looking better and some interesting lighting effects... but I hope you aren't feeling as down as one might infer from looking at your dark and rather despondent feeling artwork (this coming from me, har), this is especially evident in the portraits/self portraits. Why also for the interest in victims? Just curious. Anyways, hope you're doing well and keep it up!

    Nam: I appreciate your concern. I never share what I am thinking so I guess these paintings are a way for my subconscious mind to deal with it. The victims are just part of another project I am doing based on victims of war during the Second World War.

    new update. These all have titles, check out my deviantArt account to see what they are.

    Thanks,
