    ROUND #266, the pale greeter to the gates of hell

    topic:

    ROUND#266, the pale greeter to the gates of hell

    first off, an apology...

    there was a bit of a mix up this week with scheduling and that is the reason the new cow topic is a day late. sorry for the delay I'll try not to let it happen again. now onto the new topic...

    in keeping with what is turning into a tradition, cow will deal with the concept of hell or demonic creatures every round that ends in 66.

    so the idea i came up with is a beast that greets all of the poor souls that have committed sins so heinous in life that they are sent to hell to live out eternity in anguish. placed there by the devil himself, this pale greeter beast should appear so vile and startlingly evil that the toughest souls would scream in terror at the sight of it.

    think disgusting + extremely threatening.
    in other words, show us the most terrifying beast you can think of.

    requirements this week...

    - the creature must appear disgusting, and very threatening.

    - the creature must have a pale complexion. almost albino like.

    - no other requirements other than the obvious ones in the rules.


    Deadline:

    July 25th 7:00pm PST (GMT -8 )


    finals go here... http://conceptart.org/forums/showthr...44#post3501644

    I am really looking forward to trying my hand at this one, and seeing all the other fantastic ideas you guys come up with. This one sounds like way too much fun.

    If I may, I'd like to point Zdzislaw Beksinski's work - especially his paintings from 68 to 83 - as a reference for terrifying things and creatures, even though he works a lot with humanoid forms. You guys probably know him already, this is more of a reminder.

    LurkingOrc: Didn't know his work, awesome stuff. Wayne Barlowe might be an obvious reference as well.

    Just some quick sketches based off scribbles from a randomized brush to get the creative juices flowing.

    So far I think I'm liking 2, 12, 14, and 15.

    The most terrifying beast I can think of? I don't think I have actually ever tried to scrape the very bottom of my terror-barrel. It's a looong way down and I'm afraid of what I may find. But... at the very least, the results should be an interesting exercise in discovering what my own mind is capable of.

    Challenge accepted.

    I can not participate just yet but I did find some references of both demonic entities as well as sickly humanoids.

    Here are some references guys: http://imgur.com/Ss4U7,JY0AX,ixtHw,B...OD,s81fi,6nRSu

    I think greeter is a bit of a misnomer. Guard 'dog' might be a better fit, a greeter sounds too much like a character

    So maybe think of something in between, a type of smart monster that ushers people through the gates?

    Van Douglas: why can't you participate? don't give us these 'I'm not good enough' excuses!! Hop in and join the fun!!!

    some pissing about with silhos...have no idea what to make of the thing in the middle, but the other two look interesting...starting to get an idea inside my head of what sort of monstrosity to make, I started a bit of rendering to refine the idea a bit, but didn't want to get caught up in it too much just yet....first we'll see what other experimentations will yield...

    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!

    Here is my first draft. I think the final image will be from a more intimidating angle, but this one will be a good reference. I still don't think I quite have the terror level cranked up to 11 though.
