    I had a feeling there where going to be a lot of submissions to this round.

    Lhune: That is looking amazing. I think it would be cool if you made it 4 or 5 times bigger and added atmospheric perspective and some clouds, like as if it where generating it's own weather. Are you going to do the other three elements?

    Rob: Thanks for the advise. Yours is looking really good. I love the arms, especially how they're posed. Those bony little fingers are creepy.

    Whiskey: My biggest crit would be to not use pure black and white to shade if you're going to also use color. It makes it look muddy.

    Ashess: I love the colors you chose for the water element, very unconventional. For design ideas, maybe look at other deep sea and primitive life and see if there are some things you can integrate.

    Scorge: It took me a while to find the part that looks like it could be a head... haha. It needs more contrast or something to draw the eye there, but other than that, beautiful as always.

    Junco: Hey! Nice to see you here The only crit I have is that everything seems to be leading the eye right off the edge of the page. With the face and hands so close to the edge, it makes it looked cramped. If you just added some space to the left, it would help the composition a lot. No crits on the creature, he looks cool. I love the way you paint, it reminds me of gouache.

    Mythril: That is just cool. It looks like something that would be found in the Underdark.

    Beefy: Love the earth one, but I think the fire one's pose needs to be worked on. The fact that his right arm (our right) is straight and so close to the ground, but not actually in contact with the ground, makes it look weird. And the back feet look stubby and pinched. If you're going for a cat theme, I would suggest doing some lion paw studies and really trying to nail it.

    hey thanks spiralhorn! that´s a great idea. mayby those fanned fins if a seadevil or something. gonna find some nice ref.

    so.. umm this is what I got so far. I kinda like m. but they´re not really consistent much in design. might be best to worry about that later.

    An idea for the water one, and some changes to the fire elemental to make it maybe a little less humanoid.
    Not sure if the new setup with the little worshipers works better?
    Also that little blob in the water blob on the seahorse is an external heart
    Can't wait to see more elements from you guys and those cool thumbnails take form.

    Finished this one off, but I may have to go back to the drawing board to come up with a design that isn't so plant-like. I'll sketch up some new ideas and see if I can get inspired to start over.

    Elementals WIP

    Hi COWies! Always inspired by the work and imagination here. It's been a while since I've participated and just had to get in on this one. I wanted to show all of the elements in one image, still very rough...Let me know what you guys think. Can't wait to see how everyone's turn out!

    Here's an updated version after about two hours of rendering. Instead of sacrificing the shape of the creature to give it an elemental feel, I decided just to fade the extruding features out into strands of water. Please let me know what you guys think so far!

    VegasMike: Fuck yeah! I'm liking this already

    Ironbyte: What you need right now is a sexy camera angle. It'll help creat drama which will sell your design. I always find it's easier to design something if you imaging creating a still from of a movie.

    How would you shoot that movie to make the very most of your creature?

    Think of the light. Uplighting from the molten rock it's rising from? Maybe some rays of sunlight from a crack in the ceiling?

    Is the human his master controlling him somehow? If so what pose would you put him in to best sell that idea?

    Go for it dude! Make that fucking movie!

    You know it makes sense dude! Try to be really free with your brush to start with and shapes will apear.

    Don't think!

    It is like a finger pointing toward the moon.

    SLAP!

    Don't concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly glory...

    SLAP!
