    IDW #120: Goggles!

    Topic: Goggles!

    Background: Uhm...not much background needed here I think. The topic this week is a little more open: goggles!

    Feel free to attach hats, helmets or masks to it if you want but make sure you emphasize the goggle part in this round!

    Brief:
    1. Design and draw a pair of goggles!
    2. That's it... now draw!

    Deadline: Wednesday, March 10

    Initial idea. I feel that the cyclops species have had a raw deal in modern times, they never made the leap to sci-fi and rarely appear in fantasy anymore. So ive decided to take the matter into my own hands. I was thinking that a fantasy/steampunk look would be better, but felt like doing something different. Like cyclops covert ops night vision goggles . Technically its a goggle as supposed to a pair of goggles.

    Obviously still a WIP, but would like to know what people think of the idea.

    That's a cool idea man; looking good so far. I'm still thinking about my concept but I'll probably stay away from high-tech stuff this time

    Just a question:goggles are like safety glasses, nvg, etc, so I suppose ordinary glasses do not fit the topic, right ?

    Kosta: I think ordinary glasses might be a little too far from the brief yeh, though if you manage to combine that with something that's actually a bit uhm, goggly, I will allow it

    UPDATE - changed the shape, whatever I did with the round goggles it kept reminding me of that guy that wears the fake eye in the harry potter movies. Also tried to make it darker and textured, to make it more covert-ish looking. Im also quite happy with how my shading and texturing have come out in this one. definately alot more like what was in my head compared to last weeks effort.

    Of course, I welcome all comments, good or bad


    P.S I wanna see more WIP from other people!

    I've been having trouble finding inspiration ... I was going for a steampunk style but it' hard to come up with something original because there is already so much 'steampunk goggles' stuff around. I have a pencil sketch of some military ballistic goggles that maybe I'll try to develop.

    By the way, good job Danbot386; I'll post something when I decide what to do

    Maybe try something biomechanical/gieger style? Or maybe go along the lines of a steampunk VR headset?

    ScribbleHEAD, I was looking at your blog and your work is really impressive man (that Nomad truck is awesome). Do you use the 'kemp remillard's technique' to make such beautiful detailed vehicles ?

    reference

    Here's some internet reference for those who don't feel like googling goggles.

    Not sure if I'll do anything for this one, but goggles using organic materials could be fun -- wooden goggles, leather, animal bones etc...
