    I think the comments were right... too generic for the specified project brief... oh well, next time...

    These are great - love the design for John Carter especially. Feels a little like Leyendecker to me. That whole Rice Boroughs series were favorites of mine growing up - nice to see someone giving them some love.

    Missed the deadline on this one because I took a short vacation. Too bad... it was a fun one to paint.

    Thanks for your tips, and please keep them coming. I'm trying to up my level of detail and quality, and these sorts of things help. I probably won't get back to fixing old images, I'll just apply the lesson to the next sketch!

    Good observation

    Mmmm... good observation. Not making it to the poll with my Blood Moon Monk has made me want to up my quality of work to the level that I think I'm capable of. I had been shooting for quantity to try and build a larger portfolio, but it'd probably be better to have fewer quality examples.

    It's hard though, I get impatient with paintings when they take too long.

    Anybody out there with real advice on what entertainment design studios like to see?

    You should work on a few more mechanicals when you get the chance.

    My post from CHOW:
    ==========================================
    Ok, due to the new requirements, here's my WIP stuff, final, and some thoughts.

    I've not included my WIP's in the past because I have very little time to do these weekly contests. I'll often do some quick tiny thumbz in my work notebook and jump right to painting. It's not an ideal situation, but in order to hit the deadlines with a more "finished" piece, I typically have to work this way.

    Orion's Sketches

    This started with some brief internet research... I usually find images that have bits and pieces of elements that I want to include (a headpiece, a bracelet, etc.) These sketches represent a few approaches: minimal adornment on the left, clothed, and a mixture between the two on the right.

    I decided to move forward with the half clothed/half bare skinned concept with more regal elements added. Experimented with a headdress, and tried to make him look like he was overloaded with stuff as a symbol of wealth to the gods: feathers, gold, medallions, body-paint. Also, I tried to make his expression reflect acceptance of what's about to come. Painted it up, and here's the final.

    Orion's Sketches

    I'm somewhat satisfied with it. After not going to the poll with the Monk, I decided that I wanted to spend a bit more time on my renderings to up their quality level... their level of detail. I think my Harley Quinn had a bit more detail (as someone pointed out in my sketchbook), so that's what I tried to do. I think some of that is working for me.

    What's not working is that his costume kinda looks like a costume. There's something that's not believable about it... might be the colors, might be the over-the-top-ness. might be the way that I rendered some of the "fabric" portions. Oh well... onto the next...

    C&C welcome...

    This is good. Maybe you can make the costume more, 3D ? i mean for the detail of the costume. Area like the shoulder, feet and the head. Make in pop out more. Just my thought..

    very nice work man, you sure show you know what you're doing with the digital media, looks like you use it not as an imitation of traditional media, but as pure digital, wich i guess is very good.Nice characters, very cool brushwork

    keep sharing!

    ciao

    yinteck - Good points and thanks for the crit. I'll be sure to watch out on the 3D-ness of the costume elements. Looking at it now, a lot of the portions (shoulder pad etc.) look like pieces of paper and probably could benefit from further detailing.

    Ceejay, TheGnoll, pijus - Thanks all!

    I kind of interpreted this brief a little differently I suppose, but here it is anyways.

    Orion's Sketches

    Thumbnails
    Starting in the center, I thought it might be funny to have a futuristic interpretation of a mobile home... maybe illustrated with a cel-shaded cartoon style and an alien low-life coming out of it.

    I moved to the idea that large space ships kinda become houses... like the extended cruise ship in Wall-E, except that each individual person would have this ship/house (sketch on the left).

    Description
    (Right thumbnail and final image) I then moved to the idea of a post-war society where dilapidated army vehicles were re-purposed as housing. Similar to how the Philippines re-purposed old war jeeps, converting them into public transportation. Link. So, shown here in the final image is a decommissioned troop transport that has been retrofitted to serve as a home. It is still mobile due to its prior purpose and many of these are in service as shelters to those lucky enough to obtain one.
