    This is where the drink will flow and blood will spil. So if the boys wanna fight, you better let em.

    Here´s the topic for the battle:
    Creature based.
    Mythological creature created by human in the near (or far) future. It can be geneticaly created (jurasic park type) or mechanicaly created (animatronic or something like that).
    It must look real and full of life.
    What i mean with real is that it can´t look like a magical creature. To explain myself, it can´t be a creature like a balrog (made of fire) but it can spit fire because it´s technicaly posible to do it.
    No limitations on the media.
    At least one full rendered picture must be done.


    Mcotie, take the time you need to take some rest an prepare metally.
    I can win you with both hands tied on my back and my wacom pencil in my teeth but i want this to be fun, so don´t make it so easy buddy :evilbat:

    Jaku. You could only wish that I had time to rest my friend. I've been bustin my ass but I made a little time to crank out some WIPs. I chose the Manticore as my Mythical beast. This is a legendary beast from Asia. it is a Lionlike creature with bat wings and the tail of scorpion and the head of a human with a lions mane. But since we had to show this as fabricated by humans in the far future, I gave it a tail of a minigun and linkage, fixed wings. I've got a few other ideas floating. I'm also playing with an appropriate pose for my final illustration.

    I will reply with senseless praise! YOWZAH! cool concept.

    Ok I have to try and be constructive; I will say I definitely do not like the fixed wings, but it looks like you changed it in your latest design. Also I think the shiny black robotic look is not as successful as a cyborg approach. Make a gory organic human face stapled on the head! That might just be personal taste though.

    I agree with Nimrod about the fixed wings. In the first post the face looked very gorrilla like and I'm glad you chose to go away from that as well. The latest looks very awesome. Can't wait to see it finished. I like the spinal/Aliens look of that tail.

    Better thought, a sphinx would be a female version or the monster you choose. I´ll think another one... :evilbat:

    Good battle shaping up here!

    mcotie--I really like your newest pic and I think a shiny black carbon-fibre manticore would rock!

    jaku-- don't back off because of similar creatures, just dig into the cultures that created the sphinx. I think the Egyptians didn't always have wings (if ever, not certain), while the Babylonians (or maybe Sumerians?) sphinx were mostly male and did have wings. Build a sphinx for the Neo-Babylonian war machine!

    hey mitch.
    Here's my problem, how come your sketches look like my finished stuff. You son of a b*tch. I've got this folder on my desk top called "inspiration" and in that folder is another called "Mitch". Nuff said.

    Jaku- Lovely sketch! great values. Look out mitch.

    Peace
    Dan

    mitch- those two pieces are fuckin awesome! love the torch. it shows me how much quicker I can be and still be 100+ times as effective. i really liked the first 'study' too

    jaku- i really like the color studies dude!! i like the tits, but you gotta figure out how this chick cat is gonna deal with that manticore..... make her more threatening and give her some fire retardant armor!

    Great battle here!

    mcotie - Wow! That's freaky awesome! Love the blow torch and the details on the head are just jaw dropping gorgeous! I think the legs look a little fragile right now though. I think they need to be beefier and the hind legs seem to far forward (like it's sitting very uncomfortably).

    Awesome work guys!

    Mcotie: You're damn good! You call those sketches? Two gripes though:

    1) I think that it would be much better if the head was attached to the body through the wires (that act as hair) only and if it could freely move in and out of the body.
    2)I also think that the head could be a bit smaller.

    Awesome stuff regardless.
