    absolutely crazy! that is some serious technique with the colour and value and lighting and rendering. Just absolutely study worthy that's for sure. Best of luck!

    I had to do something with a lot of negative space since im on a really short leash at the moment - waiting on assignment details.

    Those arms will be in my nightmares. i'd hate to be second to hatch,for real.
    Thats a stud, or could possibly be a 2X4 or maybe even a window frame given the scale to the moth. If youve ever noticed in attics or basements there are sometimes stilts or support beams in odd places.
    Your basically looking through some sort of missing area to a wall, it could be missing for any reason, or possibly never completed to begin with, or maybe even boarded up - there are plenty of things that dont make absolute perfect sense in buildings. It looks more balanced if you view it on a black background, which its intended to be viewed on.
    The green is illuminated fog, or dust or whatever it is thats steaming off the eggsack, use your imagination, its really only there for ambience.
    I went about underlighting the eggsack like your talking about initially but it really cooled off the eggsack too much, in addition to conflcting with the pinks, creams and greys of the eggsack, and theres enough of a little ambient reflected light in there to represent it.

    Its not perfect and Im certianly not pretending to be a flawless draftsman, heh - quite the contrary.

    I appreciate your attention to detail and critique though.
    Best wishes and escpecially thanks for your time!

    Very atmospheric and creepy, CryptCrawler. Great lighting and I like the colour balance too. Works for me.
    Do you have any wips you feel like posting to show how you got to this stage. I'd love to see them, please, as I'm sure some other would too.

    Mmm, alien sac blobs. Really nice work on those textures. I'm distracted by the bright lower-left corner but other than that it's great!

    Well now, this is really frightening! I think I will not sleep well tonight. Great work!

    I am really impressed with your work, BTW, the "Asking for Directions" piece on your deviantart site is fuckin awesome. It pulls me into a very real world... I love that!

    Thanks so much Nick, im really happy those elements came through for you.

    I never save my WIP's since im constantly working over them and spending so long on each piece, there would be hundreds per work and quite frankly I dont want the clutter in my folders.
    I only work on 2 layers, one of them a safety layer so I dont lose what I like, so the work tends to evolve really quickly as I try to capitalise on happy mistakes or good grooves and cant be bothering with capturing WIP's that are useful, it just distracts me.
    Im a shitty multi-tasker and like to stay locked into one mode.
    Filming something will be in the works soon, thats much more hands free and would be way more useful I think.

    Thanks so much for your interest, im sorry I cant provide something useful at the moment in terms of a WIP.

    Im glad you dig the alien sac-blobbage! I love to do disgusting textures.

    Open it up on a black background fullscreen. Thats how its intended to be viewed and it looks most balanced that way, at least I think it does and thats how it was created. It gives more of an impression that the room continues off camera, at least thats what ive attempted to give the illusion of.
    I appreciate the comments!

    Thank you very much hueyyeng! I love to use negative space techniques, it gets me thinking less is more and balancing the composition as a whole, it really helps me evolve the focus.

    Thanks for your time and compiments!

    A great image, so well done. To make the process seem so effortless that is the hard part.

    Thanks Michael, im glad you dig it.
    You know I dunno if ive ever looked at anyones work and thought "it seems so effortless", I guess its because that art has always been all about blood, sweat, tears and confrontation for me - and thats just how I like it, its good for the soul.

    I like to fight with things and then see what happens, see who's left standing and see whats lurking around down there.

    Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment!

    I've asked about your ideas before on another site. I think if you were to write your own illustrated novel, I'd break necks to be the first one to get a copy.

    It seems you are at home with these concepts and the style is always amazing.

    I'm done boot-licking, just wanted to throw more support your way! =) Good luck.

    very cool, i like it. The green is very toxic.
    I like the light that comes from the window, the light stripes on the creatures body look cool, tho i dont see where the light from the lower part of the window goes, i think it would cast light on the lower torso and upper leg too.

    cheers
