    silentbrain vs MrKayne

    Okay silentbrain and I have decided, and this shall be improved law:

    Topic: A monster or genetically altered animal/creature that is used for warfare.

    For this match there will be one final image; the monster can be realistic or completely fantasy. Any medium or programs are allowed. Optionally, a second piece can be created, of a monster or genetically altered animal/creature that is an exotic pet.

    Okay, these are simple sketches, but I think I'm trying to go for a genetically altered animal type of feel. This one is more of the war-type... I'm thinkin' he's got to be vicious enough to not need weapons, but can be able to handle them.

    Not much yet, but I'm getting a little free time now.

    I'm not sure what this one is... war or exotic; it can be exotic and valuable - skin composed of rock/mineral substance. In war, they strap a bomb on it, send it into enemy camp, then boom.

    damn dude, you've really got this going already

    tis only a flesh wound! I'll bite your kneecaps off!
    so far I've only been able to think about it, still brainstorming a bit. there's a chance I might be able to get my hands on a cheapo scanner so hopefully I will be able to participate more in this thread in maybe a week :chug:

    Gah, ya found me! Agh! I admit it, I'm actually a terrible procrastinator on these sorts of things.

    Thanks for the kick in the butt tho. I will start to get on that...(just gotta find me a cheap scanner or get mum to mail over my old scanner)

    Ah, don't worry about posting it - when I start working digitally, I'll be postin' that too. So, you can just post some WIP then... although I would like to see your sketches, I don't want to make you go through too much trouble, since we have just one month.

    Naw that's cool. I probably won't be able to get a scanner in time, but if I do any color scheme tests like I'm hoping I will, then I will post those here.

    I need to get off my lazy ass and get started though I think this kind of long-term design thing is exactly what I need more of x_x

    Okay, I'm pretty set on one of my creatures... I believe this is the war one (still working on the idea for the other creature, though). I did some more sketches, sorry, I know you can't post, but I'm just letting you see how things are here. Don't worry, should have some digital work next time.

    I really like the wings part of him, so I'm trying to work on that.

    This is the basic composition, just showing the placement.

    Here's a more detailed sketch of the pose of my creature.

    Hope your work's going good silentbrain. Been liking your DSG work lately... better be sure to bring that quality to our match!

    Oh man, looking nice there MrKayne! :chug:

    To be truthful, since school started my schedule's been in disarray, hopefully this weekend I can put in solid hours on this though. :bash:

    I decided my war creature will be a giant locust (dog sized) that attacks in swarms. Probably medieval fantasy localle, and they may be colored red and green. Been doing a few sketches, hope to have something more tangible to post over the weekend. *sweat*

    *sigh* excuses, excuses...

    Anyways, I did a rough color study today... I did it in Open Canvas instead of Painter, 'cause I read about how you can create these mini-movie type things of your process and though it kicked ass, so I gave it a go. The prog's actually pretty decent, so if your workin on a pc, download my process (I'm not a painter, so bear with it)
    [edit - deleted file... been up long enough]

    Here's the jpeg of it >

    Cool, I know opencanvas, there's some really amazing stuff I've watched just like "omg wtf aaa " I don't like that they took out networking out of the newer versions though...just like paintchat except you can save the event file.

    Anyway, thanks for the event file, was fun to watch. Good to see you're working hard on it, at least somebody is x_x

    20 more days, gah!

    Anyway, I did finally get something to post, color schemes.

    I'm not really satisfied with the design just yet, still feels like I just took a regular locust and enlarged it + tacked some stuff on, I will probably change something drastically before moving on to the final picture.

    Yeah they've got some awesome OC stuff.
    Anywas, I'm liking the color schemes... I kinda like the middle one, the purple/red/grey works well together. As for the design, it's a cool looking start - I like all the bloody teeth and spikes and such.

    I'm not sure if my sketches convey what I'm trying to get at, but I'm merging parts of animals into one, somewhat realistic creation. 'course my angle is more of a genetically-tampered-war-animal. I think the flying monkeys in Wizard of Oz were cool, so I knida started with that. It's supposed to have a cat-like torso and legs, with gorilla arms. It's has a little bit of snakeskin or something lining it's back and feet. Oh, and it's head is like a mix of a wild boar/bat/cougar-ish combo. It can even pee standing up if it wants too.

    Wizard of Oz has flying monkies?! Man, now I know my memory's gone to hell o_O

    Thanks for c&c, right now I'm just trying to think of what animal would be good to throw into the mix, then hopefully on to the final planning!

    Funny, given that we got the lunar new year off, I thought I would get more things done. >_< I will have a new start! ...after dinner...
