    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 !
