    ROUND #281 Pynok Angels

    topic:

    ROUND#281: Pynok Angels

    Pynok, the second moon of Ith has opened up for limited tourism and exploration. The moon is covered in clusters of tubular rock structures which vent organic vapors from beneath the earth's crust, hinting at a massive underground network of vents and tributaries. The vapors keep the planet's surface hot and humid. With many new life forms to discover and catalogue, most of the planet is sealed off to tourists. The only animal they tend to see is far off in the distance and far up in the sky. What are called the Pynok angels are large aerial creatures of great beauty, or at least that's the impression folks have gotten seeing them so far away. The creatures reflect incoming celestial light in such a way as to seem to have a halo surrounding them, garnering the nickname. Your task this week is to design these guys.

    Round Requirements:

    - The creatures must be large aerial (winged) creatures
    - The creatures live in a hot, humid environment with an abundance of organic vapor vents
    - The creatures have some highly reflective portion of their body which may or may no create some kind of halo effect when struck by light
    - The creatures should be beautiful, at least from afar


    Deadline:

    December 6th, 7:00pm PST (GMT -8 )

    Sounds like a good opportunity to open up good old Alchemy for this one, nice topic Simon!

    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!

    I don't have time to participate once again, but this round sounds incredibly interesting! I can't wait to see what people come up with.

    I envision a sort of half-flying half-floating creature that flies high in the air to gather air, and then sinks down into the lower atmosphere where it can rest, buoyant, on the denser natural gasses below. The shininess is a protective coating on its skin which reflects heat trapped by the dense atmosphere.

    Hear are some initial ideas. Im leaning toward 4 or 8. I like the idea of the angel being beautiful from afar and hideous close up so Im trying to push that.

    This an early design
    I'm thinking about making the tail longer.
    In my case the part of the body that reflect the light as an halo is the membrane of the head

    Hey hey... I gotta keep doing these if I ever want to get better, so here we go:

    I'm trying to stay away from a bird or dragon design. I still have a long to go.

    Great topic! I'm imagining something that would appear beautiful from afar, which would actually be terrifying up close, or at least unsettling in some grotesque way.

    Edward--If you want it smaller, I suggest you put the cliff wall behind it.

    Last account was from Facebook, Facebook login button got lost at one point.

    Looking good folks! Edward, killing it! Watch out for that blue, the contrast is good, but it's starting to overwhelm your guy.

    Made some major changes and added a little more detail.
