ROUND#279, Bubble Bobble re-design
this week we are going to be doing a re-design of the bubble blowing dragon-like creatures from the classic N.E.S. game "Bubble Bobble".
you can choose to put them in any kind of genre you wish. you can choose super cutsie, or real and terrifying. but they should include their main form of attack which is blowing bubbles that encapsulate their enemies. pretty open beyond that so just have fun with it.
Requirements this week...
-the creatures should be dragon like.
-genre is up to you.
- the creatures must be shown using it's bubble attack.

Here is a quick sketch that I started to polish the lines up. Was thinking of adding another one in behind him and maybe a bubble with a little monster floating around? Maybe this is too cartoony?
@ nickybeats: DAAAAMN!!!
Seriously thou, the colours are great did you use a photo for colour reference? Just want to know how u got that metallic sheen to it
@ daniel hurd: looking good
Decided to play it safer design wise with this weeks COW..
@marcoferrigno Dude thats awesome! Great job!
@Nickybeats Also digging your color scheme and originality.
marcoferrigno - thanks man, i just started exactly like you, with the values first, then on an overlay layer i played around quite a bit with different color choices, and finally landed on a bluish body, with a desaturated yellow/green for the legs and lower body, then i wanted to have a stark contrast by giving hiim a reddish orange face/head. kind of like a salmon... the metallic sheen comes from how i did the greyscales mostly, i had a pretty dark underside with a pretty bright light source overhead. plus the stark white highlights give it a kind of metallic look. also i originally had the red going back further into his main section, but then went lightly over it with the light blue, giving it that washed out look. i was planning on bumping up the colors more with another overlay layr, but unfortunately my painter program crashed on me ... time to invest in photoshop... ha.
for your design, i like the design and shape of the overall dragon, it looks awesome! i think the values could be blended a bit better maybe if you were to go in with a bigger soft brush, and blended in the values a bit more. then maybe go back in and give it some more texture with a chunky hard brush, and working from big to small, build up some detail in places where you want to draw attention (the face and back)
daniel hurd - thanks man! im digging your line work! i dont think its too cartoony, i thiink it works great for the topic!
Thanks nickybeats, your rendering process and technique is very similar to my own
. I agree it needs aome refining, my style is quite graphic and rough so i have to judge when im being a little too vauge with a concept!. Thanks for the advice dude!
first time Im taking part here at conceptart.org
Here is some of my work in progress to this creature. hope you enjoy it ,)
all the best
Nice pose, I like the opening in the throat, reminds me of a water gun which is a smart idea.
Something I'm working on : D
Started coloring a bit- still looks pretty rough though.
Wow Daniel , that's pretty cool. Reminds me a bit of Spyro
@francois - not bad yourself! I like the geometrical spires coming off his shoulders. Cool concept, I will be looking forward to seeing it finished.
Hi, is this activity open to horrible newbies??...
I'd like to participate, but I'm not sure about the proper etiquette... do I need to be approved by someone??
doing some quick sketches, not quite sure yet of the road im going to take!

Hi AlexaRossi i am not in charge here, but i am pretty sure you can participate. Your avatar looks lovely
Low quality pieces eventually will be deleted by (lark from final thread. Just read the rules basically.
It has been forever since I have entered into a challenge on Conceptart.org and a first for creature of the week. Looking forward to completing this.
Le update from le my part.
"I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday."
Interesting ideas so far! Keep up the good work.
Here's my beginning!
Hi guys, heres my bubble bobble´s redesing, i want some suggestions, thanks:
Sketchy page of working out where to go with this, hey hum.
@ricardops I love the look you got going. Maybe if you could implement the tendril things on the sides of the mouth it would look even cooler.
Here we go : )
My idea a bit more developed ,)
Going well, I think, I like it
I can see some nice stuff from you guys too!
It's nice to see how different the ideas come up!
All the best!
Hi all... first time doing this type of work. This sounds like a lot of fun (Just started doing creature design... mainly a traditional oil painter). For my guy, he generates the bubbles from the side of the body, rather than the mouth. Need to make him a bit more dragon-like, though. But, here's the first part. Any comments or critiques are greatly appreciated, since this is a new venture for me.
WIP: Bubble Bobble Design
Hey hey CA
I haven't done a CoW in a long time, so here's what I've got! I tried to keep the concept of the original character: Green, yellow spines down the back, short pink arms, giant eyes, three toes and fingers, two big buck teeth. I did add wings though, I felt like he looked too much like a T-Rex and not a dragon without them. I've still got quite a bit of work to go. EDIT: It looks really dark on the web too... gotta fix that.
