    Vaghauk: I think you have lost a lot of the depth and speed that was impressive in your wip02.

    Cloister :yeah..... --- it´s true ,lots of speed and frontality of the innicial drawings are gone -i gained more detail on the creature but lost a lot of the movement and dramatic moment.I think i´m going to try to modify this somehow - also the perspective could be more in the direction of the forest perspective - giving depth to the body - probably i have to re-construct the whole beasty - well .... this is really an hard week---- but since it looks like some of you would like to see this demon in a different pose i do my best to change this to an less confusing perspective-mix.
    Also there are still two nights left to go on scribbling on this.Hope the time is enough....
    and now - back to drawingboard again !!!
    hey- thanx a lot for helping !!!!!!

    okay - i changed the whole perspective of the trees and the beasty - got quite a different feeling now - the demon is really charging the satyr -and its true that it looks better.
    Was a hard decision to paint practically all over again - but i think it was worth the effort.
    thanx for everybody helping on this !

    Vaghauk the new perspective looks great!

    Here's my new concept.. this time a big battle going on between the satyrs and the slayer. I will try to add more demonic elements to him, I didn't want to interrupt my flow earlier..

    Vaghuak: friggin awesome!!! now just spend today and tomorrow really pushing it to completion, and you're golden! nice work man! (if that's fire inside of him, is it a roaring fire or simply hot coals?? what would that do to the lighting around his chest, limbs, etc?)

    vaghauk - i'd paint the left arm back in,because now you've got a big load of empty space and he looks alittle more like he's floating.

    JoshDArtist:thanx man ! Yeah- its like some kind of demonic fire - i allready started to do some more bounce lightning on the body and limps and i had the idea to add some sparks-
    The idea is that the Thorn-Demon absorbs the life-energy of his prey, and since satyrs got a lot of life energy they end up to be their favorite dish. The fire could represent that life energy contained in the demonic beast.
    it´s going to be two more nights of fine-tuning.Let´s see if i can push this even more.

    Any comments and crits- very welcome !

    Carnifex - it´s a bit distracting - isn´t it ? damn ! i thought so - but was hoping it passes--- You mean i should show more of he left arm somehow? like pushing it backwarts so we can see his hand again on the ground ?Maybe i have to stretch the canvas a bit --- hm....
    i could try to put his left hand in grabbing pose --- hm....no grabbing pose wouldn´t work - cause he needs to have the hand on the ground - or grabbing a tree-
    i try to figure out something-
    you are not reffering to his right lower arm are you ? (since it´s on the left of the pic...)

    Steve Somers - Really appreciate all of the details that you have included. The new features definitely added some weight to the piece.

    Elissimo
    - Liking the energy of your marks in your new piece. I loved your first version, too. The black emanations gave the creature an other-worldly feel.

    Cloister - Nice contrast going on between the violence of the attacking creature and the serene background. My only crit would be the direction of the slayers tail. If it were pointing in the direction of the satyr it might lead the viewers eye in a circular path from satyr to slayer to slayer's tail and back.

    Vaghauk - The piece has improved greatly with all of the changes that you have made. I like the light source coming from the chest. Maybe adding some touches of yellow to the satyr and surrounding grasses would provide another level of depth.


    I'm taking another stab at this since my last attempt did not pan out. I thought that once the slayer subdued the satyr, it could grasp the prey with it's wing-like appendages, put the satyr on his back and inject it with the nerve numbing poison in his tail.

    i pushed one of the arms a bit back - so you can see the elbow. Think it shows the whole position better....It´s true there is some empty space on the left - but maybe it emphasis the size of the creature to not show more of the arms - maybe i can put som bugs flappering around....
    now i got alot of lil thorns to paint ...
    going to add level- and color-balance layers later.

    ah and i got one issue with this - bt i´m not sure ---- i got one white lightsource from topright and the breast-fire thingy and bottom right is some greenish light which i don´t know if its abit to much --- if i would darken this it could emphasis the other light sources ---- hm...

    Cloister, Great action! The arms and legs could use a more random flying out of the water look.

    Vaghauk: Looking loads better. Way to push that perspective.

    Aug: Cool design. Sounds like a bad way to die.

    Elissimo: Brutal!

    vaghauk - i meant like on the previous wips, you had his right arm (our left) fully in the picture,almost making it seem like he would knock out the viewer if he got any closer. now you've cut it off at the top left,which makes the viewer's eyes fall on the empty space there,instead of being lead back towards the satyr. circle eye movement,know what i mean?

    carnifex ! yeah - thanx for pointng that out - this pic went through so many modifications since its first sketch that it changed the whole mood completly--- but i think i learned a lot .
    i tried to improve this arm thing by showing at least the elbow so the circle movement is not to much inerrupted - there was not enough space to show the whole arm---- hope it´s a bit better then the streched out arm i had before you comented this.
    All in all i´m quite pleased with it - going to work out the last details tonight.

    Vaghauk - Looking even better with the last set of changes!

    wizo5454 - Pure evil. Nice energy in your marks.

    scorge - Hope to see it as a finished piece.


    I plan on eliminating some of the problems with this throughout the day, (as the NFL dictates). Any tips and criticisms would be welcomed.

    aug : thanx alot ! it´s an intersting beasty i specially like the head ! if you coul just move it abit too look at us it could gain some impact.The wing-thingys are curious like they cant decide if they are wing or claws - i think they would´nt work as wings anyway with all that holes
    ah - maybe you should be careful twith the mountain ambience - sins the satyrs live in the forest - you could use the perspective you got to make him sit high above the forest for example ----
    hope this helps somehow !

    Scorge- have you been watching 'pan's labyrinth' lately?
    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.
    “You need people like me.
    You need people like me so you can point your grubby fingers and say, "That's the bad guy.""

    AUG - I like the wing concept on the new piece. I really liked seeing the WIP's on how your first one developed though. Had some really cool spontaneous markmaking going on in the real early stages, reminded me of Francis Bacon with Lucian Freud's pallette - what it may have lacked in specificity in made up for in spontanaeity.

    Vaghauk
    - WOW you really pushed yourself on the new one, that looks really sweet! Plus having him composed entirely of thorns is a unique concept I haven't seen. Adding that extra level of design and resolving the lighting to that degree radically changed it from what I saw when I last checked on friday.

    Scorge - Looks like you were having some fun this weekend, that guy is killer! The cascading flowers are a nice touch, really contrasts the brutality of the Centaur behemoth.
