ROUND #256: RGB
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

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.
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.
Pixeltuner: lol's tetris is great.
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.
i'll try this one, hopefully the site lets me post it this time, but if not, no biggie. man this is so open i'll have a hard time. a few rules help me be more creative sometimes. the hinting at pixel art is the hard part for me
Very colorful, and i probably messed something with perspective, lets see, still tons of time till deadline.
Hi all! Here is an initial idea. I'll work a bit more on the creatures.
Heres a lil wippy, I'm doing a tron type grid environment inhabited by these techy pixel creatures that feed on pure light (foreground water) and interconnection with each other.
Anyway, I'll try and make the comp, but I'm just playing around, need to relax and just have some fun painting!
Spyder: I don't quite get human from it, but I'm not sure how you plan on approaching pixels either. Regardless nice work.
Sushy: I think yours is the clearest representation of pixelart so far, definitely an interesting concept.
Ded: -jelly of your textures- But in all seriousness, your blue is coming across as purple to me, not sure if that's an issue or not though. Beautiful work regardless.
I'm not diggin' the background much, but oh well. Any input regarding the creature before I post it up on finals would be appreciated
Ded: Ha those are awesome, very space invader-esque. Which design do you think you'll go for then?
Hey guys kind of late with mine but I think i can finish it!
Very tough subject to achieve every requirement or is it just me?
Anyway here goes, not so original as a creature but I might take it to another direction.
@sushy: Very original design, but I think you should sharpen the shadows a bit and get rid of the blacks.
@ded: my fav so far pretty cool design&technique
@askew: a little more dramatic lighting could show off your creature a lot better and make the forms read. I dig the design and the color patterns.
For the background the mountains in the back should be a very light blue-grey and not black, also the waterfall would look better if it transitioned to a darker tone over the edge.
@SnailsPace: that could look awesome, not really sure at the moment but the front creature looks promising.
