    Il Capo - Those to me look like supersonic waterpowered self propelled flying canyon mushrooms. The white blotches on the top of them were good additions too, they give them a trademark of fresh picnic foods, only now in a space materialistic way.

    Mohog you might wanna try some different perspectives to improve your composition, side views can only get you so far.

    Here is my 1st CA posting and my first DSG. Looking forward to trying to draw regularly. Feedback appreciated.

    EDIT: DESCRIPTION: This bot uses organic "root" tentacles to absorb moisture in heavy cloud systems. It uses the water in its hydrogen-based fuel system.

    I like it 'cos it looks squishy Oh! The chainy things are legs, you see, and it uses them to steer! It just flails 'em around to get a push in the direction it wants to go.

    Up to now i like cw's and bombchu's especially for the sweet shapes.
    Il Capo: I like the colors and the flow, but I think you be more precise in Shape. Not much to recognize ...
    crossbowgurl: nice design and nice sketch, I can really see this thing hovering around
    Ishren: Earthworm Bomberman
    MoHog: Maybe try to start on another color than white and see where you can go from there. White can be glaring and keeps you from choosing stronger colors.
    brewin: Nice twist making it a ride
    Jonish: you could give some more love to the legs, but nice spider bot
    laxon: very creepy thing. nice. It looks a bit flat though. I think you should practice some lighting and try to keep away from overusing textures as they are
    Sudsy: nice first try, maybe spend a few more minutes in cleaning up the shapes next time

    Il Capo:I really like the movement in yours
    ste and bombchu:the stylization in these in very strong, and very contemporary with the generous use of plastic-like material
    cw:I like the texture that is applied to the legs in this piece, as well as the overall color usage.

    Shoddy design... I stuck too closely to my original marks instead of tweaking the shapes. Had fun though.

    First time submitting here too. Wanted to go with something a little bit less jellyfish-like, and apparently my idea of "many" is only 8. Trying to figure out painting in photoshop, but I think I was getting the hang of it by the time I got to the legs.

    Loves your pics Anthis, Herrmann and Ruined.

    I did this yesterday and deleted it. But changed my mind today and took it out of the recycle bin and finished it up.
