    This is an awesome illustration. I love all of the details you put into your pencils. I'm just having a little bit of trouble understanding the connection to "newborn". Is this a freshly created monster?

    the architecture looks awesome, nice detail. I love the creature as well, the tentacles seem a bit too short, but it makes sense being a newborn creature. This is my fav image so far, good work..

    That is really beautiful pencil work.Nice.Very Very exceptional pencil skills.
    My crit thoughts so far:
    1. the creature looks as tho he has flopped down onto this building, yet the bricks/pieces flying up by his head don't look like they used to belong where his head is now, they kind of look like they are random pieces that are flying up and out from his head. i think maybe move them down,change their angles, or move them forward to the right.. if you get what i mean, so they look like they were pushed from their spot by his face ( if that was what you were meaning)

    2. i dont know if you want the building to look like it is leaning from his weight, but it does.Which is really good, i think. However, some of the front where it is still rather straight should be popping off,cracking,creaking, at the face of the building, from the strain, don't you think?

    Inviting contradiction? i am."

    Wonderful work Muttonhead. Superb pencil control, with great drawing underneath. It has the WOW factor for me.

    Nickillus - Thanks a bunch!

    Artboy - Thanks! I owe a debt of gratitude to the inventor of the .3 lead pencil

    Justice Von Brandt - Danke Schon

    comixnut - Color is planned, indeed. What I am wrestling with now is whether to ink this up with pen, then do color, or just go straight to color with the pencil.

    riotorange - Thanks man. The idea was that he actually appeared there, or maybe even grew from a small thing into a big thing in that place, so he therefore displaced parts of the building as he grew. I love your ideas about the strain on the building, and I will try to incorporate those.

    Cryptcrawler - Haha, well there are a lot of great entries so far, so I have my work cut out for me, but thanks for the vote of confidence! I just liked the concept for this contest and was inspired!

    pearlyking - Many thanks!

    ROBOT_TANK - Thanks man!

    Bhrandon - Thanks. See my answer to FaylneVarger below.

    NoriRoll - Thank you! Yeah, I love the look of pencil drawings, especially those of Beksinski, Alan Lee and John Howe, they seem like finished pieces to me too!

    AhChu - Thank you!

    R a n d i s - Thanks!

    FalyneVarger - OK, so the idea is that (and I realize this is perhaps too subtle ATM, I have a plan for making it clearer) the little dudes on the walkway (which are hard to see at this DPI), have summoned their God, which they think is going to look like the little statue guy (note the multiple eyes and arms), but instead of a kindly looking ocotopus-man, they get this, which is their God's true form. I figured it is "newly born unto the Earth", which maybe is a stretch, but I wanted to do something other than an actual baby. He is new to THIS world, which is a birth of sorts, no?
