    very late start, amazing pieces from everyone, mine doesn't match up at all

    anyway i started with a mammoth, then i remembered how much i love John Bauer's trolls so i put that into the mix bait as well

    Ded- Cant wait to see where this one goes, very original idea nicly done. I think the placment of the closest leg (his front right) isn't quite right, i think it needs to be placed further out from the body (simaler to the left one) rather than all three in a line.

    I particuly like the paterns coming out of the owl eyes.

    Here's a pass I did to try and make the image a bit more dramatic. Increased the colours and shadows, and added a bit of haze. I'm not sure if this is better than the last one, or just more fussy. What do people reckon?

    Thanks Duman, The ruins were pretty freestyle actually. i just drew a bunch of lines on a seperate file, duplicated it to make a pretty patterns, then warped it into place over the creature.

    Scorge, super cool! Just a personal taste thing, but maybe a little over saturated?

    Shmaba, I really love your sketchs. A pretty tough idea to execute, I'm looking forward to more.

    Ville S, lovely fur textures around the face.

    Bertling! Don't stop!

    Vyse, Great sketch, loads of drama.

    Bertling: don't even think about quitting, remember we all felt the same at some point, thinking what's the point when there's so many better than me, and then I realise, well refer to my signature...
    Just push yourself as much you can and you'll get to where you need to be at some eventually.
    btw, I know you might be just playing, but just thought I'd say it anyways, good luck man!
    Art is not about competing against others and being better than everyone else, but it is about competing against yourself and discovering your greatest potential!

    Tomercs- This seems like a very etherial piece. The mood and style fit the topic well. Good job.

    Mistermike - An interesting design. The only thing that is throwing me off is that it looks like he has a big cartoon nose.

    Vyse- This piece has a lot of potential. I hope you get it finished in time!

    Kristo Novo- Your piece is coming along well. Personal opinion, I'm not a huge fan of the orange. Makes it seem to earth wormy to me.

    ded- Some really cool design aspects on this critter. Keep pushing it!

    sony- I would like to see some different colors of orange on this guy. He is looking almost florescent, and thats weird to me.

    scorge- Does it again. When are you gonna share your magic awesome dust with the rest of us peons? This is so well made, every brushstroke seems perfect.

    Urötskidoji - You have a really nice style and have already put quite a bit of character into this creature. I just think it needs to be a lot farther away from your basic owl.

    logistic puppet- A really promising design. There seems to be a strange shape coming out of its mouth, however. Could just be some wonky line work.



    I could use some help pushing this a little farther. Comment and critiques are welcome.

    Bertling: Don't be put off by other peoples art, i know there's a myth about art as being a gift, but its a gift that's earned from hard work and long hours, and continually pushing yourself to get better and better. I don't think there is one artist in the world who can honestly say they are truly happy with everything they created, even the great masters had their doubts, why else would they continually try to create and evolve their art. So don't worry about what others are doing, even at the cost of creating a disaster, just put in the effort and use the challenge as your motivation and you will get there.

    Impressive work, nice to see, guys

    I've finally settled on design, more or less... Looking forward to spending tomorrow on rendering and coloring. And fixing some things, of course.
