    update

    Right, I've decided to keep on painting the bloody bugger, even if it's too human looking, because I just kind of like where it's going. Besides, this is the only one I have any hopes of finishing before the deadline.

    I realize the lighting is kind of off, or really just not there, I just got carried away on all the little structures I imagine on his or her body.

    bad hairstyled aquatic horror wip 4

    some progress done on the mermaid - but i´m still not impressed with the hair - is it curly enough ? (i put some tiny curls...) is it oily enough ? Does it need a pink ribbon ? pigtails maybe ?it looks allready a bit silly - so maybe it wouldn´t make much difference to give it a better hairstyling.... i just think it´s to much hair ... well the briefing says that it got to be some kind of mane...or fur.
    what do you think?
    Well now i´m going to fiddle a bit on the background ...

    marschyou should work out the body with more pale skin - looks transparent against the background like you just let the linework on top of the color degree.
    ah - and careful with the haircut ....

    Alright, two pics. Close to being finished. Should I use the creepy hair, or the ocean seaweed?


    Any other comments or critiques are much appreciated.

    Looking cool so far people!

    Duman I think you should go for the creepy hair, but dont have it stop so abruptly, let it grow a bit further up the neck and have it get shorter and cover less the further up it goes.

    Acb
    - thanks! waiting to see yours progress.

    Edward B - looking great, watch out for the hair though, can't see any.

    JoshDArtist - Great piece, I like the colours and the face.. creepy




    Sketch done, based on the two other sketches posted a bit further up. This creature can both walk on two legs and all four awh yeah..

    Some time left so I figured I'd throw out some random crits and praise and all that.
    Defiled Visions: You are a sketchaholic aren't ya? I've loved em all so far. Really like your style of painting too so looking forward to that.

    Duman: The angle of the hair and the straight profile of the face don't really jive if you know what I mean. You could also submerge him/her a bit more to kind of show better interaction between the creature and the environment. It looks like your light source is fairly strong as well so try throwing a drop shadow on the cliffs behind, it will really help pop this sucker off the screen. Background looks gooood.

    Vaghauk: Background looks great, really like the water trail. The hands and the face seem a little chunky, you probably want to focus them in a little more to make them the focal points and give us a lead around the scene. Scary looking dude for sure.

    Wiggers: What can I say, every time you show up, you slap the shit out of us with your awesomeness. Beautiful ugly beauty. The skin, comp, poses and pretty much everything else about the image are top notch my friend.

    All I've got time for for now, but I'll see you guys in the finals. Good luck everyone!

    ugh, sorry for the lack of updates, i've been attacked by a malicious flu virus >_< not sure if i'll be able to finish but i'll give it a go when i get better *crosses fingers for a few days more*
    some crits comments that come to mind-

    vaghauk: honestly i really dug your first analogue sketches, they had this cool beluga whale look to them. the pale skin made the blood more striking, a bit late to be throwing that in, sorry. it's a cool beast all the same and i agree with the others that bg is excellent. feels like i'd see it in baldur's gate

    defiledvisions: great sketches, i really like the look of the bottom left on in scan 015 but your latest design has some pretty cool elements so meh i like them both guess

    duman: i say creepy hair but spread it out a bit more so it feels natural, thinner at the edges of the follicled zone (real medical term, don't bother checking it up >_>)

    acb: i really like idea of seeing that underwater swimming past you (or at you ) out of the darkness. i would make the body not so top heavy if it "stands" so tall, it looks like it might just fall over on land. course you could add some shackles and have it supported upright or find some other way around it. i think it's uneven(n?)ess adds to the believability of it, it's not so extreme that it stands out.

    steve sommers: wow pretty novel designs, i can really see the guys at the bottom of your first set "stowing" on the underside of ships like barnacles. the one you went with is cool too, i think they look creepier without the eyes (assuming your initial sketch lacked eyes >_>)

    harmageddon: keep at it, i for one would love to see this thing finished, the pale undead look is really coming through well.

    crowsrock: that thing is pretty horrific i'd like to see this pushed further.

    edward b: looking good, feels like an aquatic illthid, i'd try and add a little something more, some tiny feature or change in texture to the skin to add some variety. i really like the spiked shell on its pelvis.

    pomelo: beautiful work so far, seriously, i wanna see an update

    deathbychris: nice, sorta kraken/medusa thinger, looks great.

    scorge: everything is awesome except in my opinion (and possibly only my opinion) the tentacle feets coming out of shins is a little wack looking. on the other hand it would be pretty awesome to see it in motion like some slithering writhing tripod, or maybe like a sidewinder hmm.

    dustwind: nice concept, hope to see a more realised version

    aestheticmachine: damn, that's creepy, a little texture work would really help out. push it further, i believe in you. btw love the blood.

    nhil: i'm liking the mix of wet slimy skin and soft short fur, a little too cute looking for me as a whole

    masterpete: i think you shouldn't have cut off so much of the creature on so many sides, it really looks like it's squished in there ready for some photo to be taken. if you check you'll see that the face is really wonky and features seem to deviate from the midline in both directions. however the guy caught in its grasp is really quite well done

    joshdartist: i like what you've done with the body, really like the hands but i think the hair is letting it down some, idk to me it looks like it's wearing a wig or it just has a hman head underneath. it's all too straight and styled. looks too (humanconcept of ) cool and that gives it too much character for a creature imo.

    and that's it i believe, if i missed you out i'm very sorry. i'm off to get more bedrest

    bloody,buggery,curly-headed Bloodsuckers of portsmouth

    I tried to give more focus on the face and the hands and some more contrast to the blood.And in the end i gave her a better curly-hair aswell.
    Hm....is it me or everything looks much brighter when i upload ...?

    Realized my previous turnaround was a little close to a concept I had already done,so, trying to find a new stance. I'm not great at working with silhoettes yet, so, I just drew up a set of bones and started playing frankenstien with their placement :/ Not really sure which way to go with this at the moment, but I'm gonna decide on something. Hopefully. Gah XP

    DefiledVisions- I really really like how the flesh is torn and stretched in that wip.
    Vaghauk- I havent really noticed anything with the values in uploads changing. That said, there is a lot of white in your image- is that what you're talking about?

    I'm not going to have time to finish mine, but I'll post what I have. I wanted to interpret the creature as a mutated human that adapted to live in the ocean.

    i think this will have to be the end of it, time is the enemy. hopefully pushed the texture far enough, wanted to keep it just a little subtle so it looks slippery, bloasted and nasty, nothing too bumpy.

    thanks for the crits - hope to see lots of entries in the finals

    final WIP

    hey everyone,
    I took a picture with my phone of the latest stage, the paint is still wet so I can't scan it in time. That's not all bad, since the photo kind of gives it an eery feel.
    @mythril golem: thanks for your supportive comment! I'm nearly there, but I thought I'd upload it anyway in the final section, and see what happens.
    Oh and good health to you, hopefully you've won the battle with the flu by now.

    The word ‘anarchy’ comes from the ancient Greek αναρχία in which αν meant ‘without’ and αρχία meant first a military ‘leader’ and then ‘ruler’. Anarchist society is one ‘without rulers’: a classless, non-hierarchical society.
