    ROUND #256: RGB

    topic:

    ROUND#256 - RGB

    This round is round 256, and to go with that, we’re going to look at colour and pixels. As digital artists we tend to use the Red, Green, Blue colour mode (i.e. the additive primaries) to make our work. This week your task is to make a creature that pays homage to this. Exactly how is up to you, but you must the creature(s) should be exclusively red, green and blue. You might want to do a red a green and a blue creature, or throw all three into one. Try and play off the digital side, or the pixel-based elements of art-making here. Be creative and have fun, it’s pretty wide open, but I want to see some clever plays on the way we do what we do (in creature form!).

    Requirements this Week:
    - The creature should pay homage to RGB colour in some way

    - The creature’s colour scheme must exclusively be comprised of Red, Green and Blue and must incorporate all three

    - The creature should in some way hint at or play at the notion of pixel-based art


    Deadline:

    April 25th 9:00pm PST (GMT -8 )


    finals go here... http://conceptart.org/forums/showthr...30#post3437230

    Wow... This could go in so many directions.

    I can't participate this week but I look forward to seeing what people come up with! Right now I'm envisioning some caterpillar-like insect with three distinct segments - each with a primary color and different anatomy (the red section can be spiky and threatening, the green section more friendly, and the blue section poisonous with subtle barbs). Legs would protrude between the segments. If we were allowed to use other colors, I would do the following: the legs that lie between two segments would be the color produced by additive color combination (the leg between the red and green segments would be yellow, for instance) and would be hybridized from the anatomy of both of the segments.

    That's my brainstorm for the night. Cheers! I look forward to seeing what people come up with.

    Some simple thumbs to get the brain going; although I'm still not sure where exactly I want to go with this yet.

    I'm thinking bird, was using a peacock as a reference over lunch today, was sketching it out. Going to put it in PS and play around with coloring, and such.

    Still sketching. Decided on a serpent like creature based off the thumb. This is definitely a challenge and makes me realize I need much more practice.

    @ Flame: I like the rendering you have of the head as well as the design on the head. The feathers on the head remind me of that dino from Jurrasic park...like the feathers would flair out to intimidate its prey or ward off intruders.

    Flame_Unquenchable: nice sketches
    kraemology : looks like two tails? watch out the back one doesnt fit in to well at the moment.

    just a quick sketch, my initial idea.
