    Allright, here's my almost completed sketch of the creature (or should I say 'creatures'?)... I know it's not too great, but I'm trying.... I have a rather gruesome idea for the 'plating' design, but I have yet to sketch it out, and fear I may not compleet it... oh well, I'll just post a detailed explination with the polished version of the living creature if I don't finish on time...

    sluggy wip03

    zypherax : best if you size it between 600 and 900 px before uploading.if you use ps it got an practical "save for web" option.

    here some more progress on sluggy - this is going to be an painting-marathon for me ....
    so many ideas....

    Vaghauk: Looks pretty cool, your creature, but as you said, a little bit slime and stuff like that would be great.

    scorge: Awesome, as always- I really like the dangerous look of the transport-robot, also the concept of the creature itself looks brilliant.

    Tommoy: Looks nice, I love the lighting in your second picture (cooking process)- your creature concept might still need some shadows if you ask me.

    zypherax: I can't help you there, since I'm also a Photoshop user- but I'm sure Corel Painter also has an option like 'change size' or something like that.


    Another update of my creature, most probably the final one: I think it's ready for the finals, isn't it?

    Man, what happened to COW this week?
    hopefully next round has more participants.
    Vaghauk: that's an ambitious serving piece, you're putting in some serious work, I like that we can now see how large that creature is, I thought it was much smaller until now. looking forward to seeing how it all turns out.
    Orm Irian: good work, I see you've posted in the finals. I was going to ask if you ever used the smudge tool? it might help to smooth out some of your textures and blend them together better, like in you serving bowl for instance. good work over all

    wow - i hope there is still some time to finish .... M.Jaecks - some more hours please ....?
    here is some progress on the dinner party...
    i changed the slave in the foreground cause i thought he was drawing to much attention ... like him better like this.Somehow the arcs in the background are still a bit too boring-
    got to add lots of details - going to be an long night ....

    Hey guys. Deadline today, poll tomorrow, time willing. There are only four entries posted. Are we having a holiday slow down?

    The next challenge will be regular, weekly type.

    Thanks

    the wip section is really quite empty this time.... i worked until seven in the morning to match the deadline - looking now at the pic i would probably scribble-dibble a bit more - but i let it like it is. Was extermly fun to do this one - now i defenetly got to read the books .This is my last entry this year - got tons of work waiting - have to earn some money to buy myself an christmas present....maybe an dune collection...

    I was really not happy that I had to drop out of this last round. Can't wait to see what the next COW will be...

    Yeah, I think you are right, RayTwicket.. I probably should use the smudge tool more often, but I always fear I will lose many details through that. I guess it needs to be used wisely.

    It's a small round indeed, but I really like your picture, Vaghauk. Especially the second picture looks very interesting with the Harkonnens, slave and the food: Really a well done picture.

    I will try to enter the next rounds as well, but I'm also quite busy at the moment..

    NICE!
    glad to be able to share techniques that people actually find useful.

    Orm Irian: keep everything in layers, if you maybe smudge your base layer(s) and then add a new layer on top of that to bring back some of the details you might have lost by smudging. Like Vaghauk said it's a time saver.

    I'm surprised how lame it is at the moment in Cow, while Chow is boiling from activity.

    Vaghaux: nice concept, the presence of the Harkonnens bring back memories of the film. Only on a second look I noticed the 'tap' on the person on the right. I think the bright green background distracts a little, maybe desaturate it a bit.
    Raytwicket: lovely detailed creature, specially the belly looks great. The perspective on the armor plates on its back is a little off.
    Orm Irian: I like the concept, some parts are hard to read though. Also I think you should use a wider range of values.

    I will try out a new technique (using the smudge tool more) for my next entry, probably.

    Argh, you're right, Tommoy. I really had problems to describe in English what I actually planned to write... I worked it over a little bit now- I hope it's better now. Also, I need to start drawing the pictures in greytones first- I think it would help to get some variety into the values.

    Tommoy : thanx for the crit !! - think i let it like it is for now ,since i allready posted it to the finals...
    Raytwicked : fun creature - nicely painted ! i agree with the armor plates being off perspective - and the background turned out a bit in conflict with the critter -but all in all it´s a nice piece !
    Orm Irian : i like that you painted the creature from different angles that we can see how the critter works.Also the overall design is quite original.

    think this was the most deserted cow i saw in the last months - but we got some very nice stuff going - thats for sure !
