    righto... went all crazy. and I need help .. when I paint digitaly its much like acryllics... I don't know how to get the "digital painting" feeling like many of the people here.. is it because I don't use overlay and multiply layers and textures?

    anyhow.. started out simple... but I grew to like this piece... but damn I need to start paying attention more. I know there are majors anatomical flaws and stuff, yet I go into rendering. I'm a sucker.. 2.5 hours work... probably gonna finnish it.

    Hadn't seen an update in a while, good to see nothing happened to DSG ;D

    A bit of a minimalistic entry
    DSG 1403: Sci-Fi • ARMOR FORGED BY THE CLOUDWALKERS
    On a land covered with mist, one of the grounded species built enormous "armors" to conquer the skies. They became known as the cloud walkers


    Not many post on this thread, it's been there almost 10 hours and there's only one entry. Weird for a topic that has been awaited for almost 3 days.

    DefiledVision I really love the choice of palette, but as you said, the anatomy is a bit hmn... flawy. I understand though, there are days when no matter how many time you try, it is still not what you imagined.
    I'd like to see it rendered in more details.

    lkjhgfdsa > Nice rendering for the armor volume, and psychedelic colors.

    XXITheWorld > Mist sky is an interresting concept, nice idea. I'm sure you can develop the design of the flying boat to be more attractive.

    DefiledVisions > Hard to tell you good advice, cause I'm playing to change my sketch style each day almost. But I will try :
    For sketch, I 'm not an addict of using any multiply layer or texture, even when I'm sketching in photoshop. I like to use at first in a sketch random fantasy brush, with crasy and messy pattern and. Sometimes they do happy accidents. After I clean it with more more "soft" style brush and low opacity.
    You get nice colors, and may be your picture is a bit ambitious for a sketch ( 3 characters front + armor + multicolors ). Try to go to a simplier idea & work on the concept more than on the rendering.

    lkjhgfdsa - Very nice work. Love those colors and the angle of the piece.

    Deevad - Interesting idea. I'm very intrigued by the concept as a whole.

    Here's my entry, about 1.5hrs work.

    I thought of "cloudwalkers" as some kind of permanently floating construction machinery... or something.
    so here's what I came up with -- I gotta get better at this speedpainting bit real soon.

    DefiledVisions: love the colors! Truly sacred armor. I wouldnt worry too much about that painterly feel, as far as I remember all your work looks stunning. Develop your own style, not everyone elses'
    the rest: amazing work lads, especially loving gorans' colorscheme.

    I did some research on the word "cloudwalkers" and found out that there is a company who make shoes for women called "cloudwalkers".
    With that in mind I thought of fashion, so how do I mix women, fashion and armor?

    Here's the result. Even if its not something fantasy inspired it still sticks to the topic. Armor 'forged' by cloudwalkers.inc
