    Newborn - Mutated Dandelion, Greetings from the Hatch, Compiling (FINAL)

    Thought of using one of my speedpaint practice as the basis for my Newborn entry. Since this is my first time joining CA contest so I sort of nervous and all the best to other contestants too.

    ==============================

    Mutated Dandelion

    My first idea is a mutated dandelion plant pollinate its seed and being observed by a duo of scientists. I wanted to capture a magical feel when the dandelion pollinates even though the scientists is equipped with hi tech gadgets.

    ==============================

    Greetings from the Hatch

    When a mysterious sphere start to ooze a glowing green liquid, a specialist group called the Alien Reconnaissance Team was sent to the location for investigation. What they will encounter is yet to be known...


    Here is a larger version of the artwork as the rules ask for the submitted work to be resize to 1000px width which makes panoramic/wide images looks small.

    ==============================

    Compiling

    Did this piece at the very last minute after seeing Tron Legacy trailer. I always wonder how a software is compiled in the virtual world. For this piece I did the lineart in Paint Tool SAI and colour in Photoshop. Didn't use any 3D software to aid me on the wireframe look. Just good old eyeballing and hand drawn wireframe.

    Not my best piece but still pretty fun to draw.

    I will post a step by step picture for all three entry later.

    I like the color on the right more and also in the the second concept how the soldier was looking at the plant instead of his comrade seemed better to me. Like it was more relaxed and they were just enjoying watching it fly away. The way he looks at him now makes me think he is asking him how they could shoot it down.

    Coming on in leaps ond buds Hueyyeng. Nice shapes, nice colour control and an over all feeling of something magnificent going on. Seems like the perfect blend of ingredients to me.

    That is a very very nice colour palette there really brings out all the details in the piece much more than the bright one did. Cant wait to see the outcome of this piece will definitly keep following it. Cant help thinking having more of these things floating or growing further in the background would look great too. I think it deserves a more poetic/romantic name than 'Mutant Dandelion'.

    Great work!

    @Nickillus: Thanks! Will try my best for it.

    @RoyCook: Yeah I'm bad with naming. I will come out with a better name when I finish the work.

    Current progress. Still going real slow due to real life issues. Hope to complete it by this Sunday.

    i second. While i dont find it distracting, it seemed better to me when it didnt have shapes that resembled city buildings in the background. It read more as some weird, strange, unique place, but with those shapes it just brings it a human resemblance... and takes away from the..different-ness it had before.(thats my new word, different-ness)
