    here is my sketch for this week, my creatures build brigdes for the alien workers because they are much faster and effective in this forbidding area

    great ideas so far!

    Getting further along with this concept, added a little colour...

    These crab-like creatures live on a group of tropical islands in the Southern Pacific. They build these bridges to expand their colony from island to island conneting a vast network of underground tunnels together.

    Any sort of critiques or suggestions are welcome

    my sketch was inspired by maxrlx's idea of lots of little guys that fit together and hold tight, like those ants that float down the river as a raft made by the many individuals holding onto eachother.

    i really like sunroamer's pics massive scale; with more light it would look cool, although its hard to see the individuals, maybe something to think about
    i also really like exclectix' concept about the rubble belt, nice

    Just thought I'd post my progress on this piece. The ocean could be better, but it's the first time I've tried to paint the ocean digitally so I don't think it's too bad. I really like how the clouds turned out though. Still needs a lot of work, but it's getting closer. Hopefully I'll be able to finish it on time.

    Once again critiques and/or suggestions are welcome!

    My creatures are small bugs that build bridges across rivers and creeks in order to transport their queen to new feeding grounds.

    To build the bridge they gather all sorts of stuff from the forest: bark, branches, other insects, small logs, and they use sticky slime from glands on their backs to piece these things together. This slim glows bright orange when it hardens.

    Going to design the bug now!

    Hello All, This has been a tough one to get my head around ! But I've spent the last 2 days working on an idea, I hope it fits the brief.

    Ok, I could work on this forever, but it looks decent enough. And cool work everyone. BTW Loakers, your piece is really good, but you need to have creatures build the bridge, and not robots, once again it's a really cool piece, but I dont think it will make it to the poll, but I'm not a mod so it's up to them.

    First, some detail shots, just so you can see a bit more clearly what's going on.

    And my final piece, cropped out most of the right since there wasn't much going on over there anyways...Feel free to rip me apart with your criticism.

    Good round, albeit a very quiet one!

    I get what your saying Rob Powell, and thanks for taking the time to comment. Yes I took some liberties with this idea, but I wont be posting on the C.O.W section, these are sentient creatures however, just a very different kind I just loved the idea too much and found it hard to escape it. This image really took it out of me, found this a very difficult EoW submission.

    Eclectix

    Really interesting forms and a great sense of how these are woven together, would love to see this taken further as part of something much bigger

    SunRomaer

    Very dark image, but I could see what your aiming for. However, a little more experimentation with your idea could greatly benefit the final piece. Try researching termite/ant colony structres for ideas and how your bridge could fit into that world. I may be off the mark, but I think it will be good for your process.

    Android411

    Strong piece with lots to consider, the red/blue values work well I think and really like the shapes the structures are forming, and over-all the framing works well (perhaps a little too dark) My biggest gripe is that I really want to see more! I see the bridges and I want to know more about thier construction, maybe one closer to the foreground thats only part-complete? Also these creatures, Im not sure how far finished developing them you are, but I would love to see a detailed one, Ive got a good idea in my head what they might look like. Cant wait to see the finished peice.

    Velocity

    I really love this idea. This one image gives a sense of how these little guys move and form structures. I'd love to see this animated. Really nice futuristic vision and the render looks sweet for a WIP.


    Braintree

    Lovely idea and the image sums up your idea well. I think it would be cool to see a birdge only half complete and perhaps a patient queen bug waiting near by to be transported, but thats up to you. Cool idea, good execution and nicely painted, but I crave mroe detail on how these wee guys knit this together


    Rob Powell

    Good to see how this came from sketch to finished piece. The idea is very good and I love how you have the creatures interacting with the seagulls. I think the drama of the scene is lost on your perspective, the image appears quite flat. Would be good see closer-up versions of those bugs/bridges too, perhaps one sweeping through the frame. I like the structures and maybe ti would be best to have a similar background to that rather than the ocean, just to tie everything together nicely. Play arround more with your colours and values to give a stronger sense of distances and your on your way to awesome-ville

    Hey guys. This ended up super rushed, and I'm not too happy with it, but I'm really busy today with family stuff (birthdays and all), so this is what I ended up with...
