Bad ass Alien hunter or warrior.
I was thinking since we both love creatures and sorts what about we both do a design of a wicked space hunter like alien which could kick the predator and ALIEN ass. We could include prelimenary sketches etc and final design BW front and side view or as many views variations you want, and then put it in an action scene..hunting or whatever..fighting etc. The action scene should be in color any 2d medium you want digital or traditional. The goal is realism and a design that the best sculptors and 3D guys could use to model from.
This is no joke this shit needs to be bad ass.
keep the creature bipedal, you cannot use a past design or sculpture to help with the final image, absolutely no refrence whatsoever only your pure imagination and raw drawing and painting abilities.
Any questions please ask.

where has the magic gone??
I wont fail now
Thanks guys for the posts,
I'm getting tired of having this thread empty so I've decided to post some works in progress and some designs that I'm happy with but not quite there. This first one I liked enough to develop into a watercolor and oil piece.
These next two are watercolors, these are still to humanoid, but I like the colors.
I always like to use a diffrent process when using traditional medium. Here I started with an inked drawing..added watercolors and then lastly with oils. The final was about 8x10 inches. Cant wait to see Petey's stuff.
Wow. Very Nice
These are extraordinary!
I love the 2nd creature the most. One thing I'd suggest, is making him a little taller(it seems as though he's around 6 heads tall, and if he was closer to 8, imo he'd look cooler).
Can you please give us a link to a high res pic of the 5th pic. It's the second sketch.
I wanna make a print of it and have it by my comp. That is one great sketch!
There is nothing wrong with using a photo to help you see things.
No one complains about life drawing,
so take a photo.
its easy, and will improve your piece greatly."
you ever paint dierctly over the sketches? maybe digitally?
and i also love teh last face on teh last sketch you posted
great concepts+great execution= fun for everyone!

Very nice work
Thanks everyone for your comments it encourages me to work harder and do art for myself which is what need more of.
Thanks so much buddy, and the feeling is mutual much respect. When I see your work I see the power and motion that alot of the legendary illustrators had like Bucema and Frazetta but ofcourse your style is your own.
tHANKS ALOT thats a great suggestion, though I was planning on making him a big boy in the final design about 7 to 8 feet high or bigger. I dont post high res of my stuff because of copyright issues many people will print this suff and try to make a buck, but I know thats not your intent. I'll do another book with more drawings and sketches and I'll defonately include this one..will that do for you IWASINK?
Yes I do digital paintings over my sketches all the time..where you been man Ive been posting that stuff all around CA.. he he here is a sample:
always nice of you to drop in and comment, glad your inspired it inspires me to here your comments. Never let go of traditional tools.
Thanks much appreciated.
Here's more or less what I was aiming for, an agile but complex critter with many gadgets..detail and doo hickies. So its progressing. Pencil ink and colored pencils.
Magnificent! I can't wait to see where you end up with this, JP. Really fascinating to see the idea progressing, too - thanks for sharing!
flip - its just insane! What the hell will your final be like if you consider those to be WIPs?
Thanks for the comments all,
thanks man, your latest stuff is impressive!
Liquidwerx, Grover Mcnab,
The fun is in the progress, not sure where it will end up.
Glad you liked this stuff, I still do love the natuarl mediums, never forget where ya been.
Yhea they are WIPs, I try to nail down the details way ahead of my final, it also pushes me to out work myself..I wont say out do..but you get the picture.
i just had to come in here and tell you SMELLYBUG how friggin amazing your 2 tdome images were.

TARGETE: the amount of detail and originality of you final design is so well done! was that pencil??
smellybug: both of those designs are top notch! i learned alot from the way you handled the rendering
awsome job guys!
I wont fail now
I agree, those final images are stellar. Truly I think that the most amount of work went into your collective entries.
This is fun....

Thanks for the kind words everyone,
I liked Smellybugs entries alot really suberb work man.
Here's my final, decided to go with pencil.
I think you may have damaged my retinas with all that detail - your work needs a health warning, JP.
This has been a battle of pure quality - congratulations to you both!
OOps...here are mine. I think Targete wins! I kinda didn't follow directions that closely. But wtf, it be for fun. Hope you like them. Targete, you tower!
