    @ Scorge: The sense of scale is nice, but I'm not so much seeing the resemblance to an evergreen pine...at least, not yet.

    @ Gregor: Cool idea, cool render, looking forward to seeing more

    My goal is to finish the "illustration" of this concept sometime today, and then proceed to doing a front-side-back turn around that would be useful enough for a production team to do the 3D model... well it's a bit bass-ackwards of me, but I'll see what I get done by the deadline.

    Mine will be based off some of the creepier caterpillars in existence.

    In the densest climes of the Canadian rockies, the wind warped pines snake up against sky, and there midst the branches the Pine Dragon attempts to conceal itself from potential prey.

    Not sure if I'm too fond of it anymore at the moment. We'll see what happens I guess! Critique is welcome .

    ok. done with the lines. I changed the format, because I think it makes the composition more interesting..
    @ Kraemology: thank you! I hope it ist going to work that way.. I actually dont often use this technique..
    @ Lhune: awesome shading! I am excited about how it is going to look in the end. I personally often dont know when to stop painting, so I will watch how you are going to make this.. cheers

    Lhune: Damn, great painting skills man! I'd say the relationship between the main body and the tree detail is indistinct.

    Progress.

    So I hit the wall of my creatives block... and here's the result. I will try to knock out a turn-around with the "final".

    I'd appreciate any critique. I can't immediately see the problem areas and I'd like to.

    I'd like push it further later.

    @ ProZacaryBrown: wow! now its getting really beefy!^^
    @ Scorge: lol -- even the sledge leads the eye back into the painting and the trees look like arrows that show the upcoming eruption when the beast beats the ground. great compositon! I think your giant could look even more powerful if you slightly changed the angle of view.
    @ Lhune: After seeing yours I also wanted to include some game animals, but I dont know if thatd be so .. cool then.. ^^ cheers.

    Okay. here is an update. I dont know how much time I will have next week, so I have to finish it in the weekend.

    Thank you Gregor! Decided to work the compo a little more and tweak a lot of things.
    Lhune: Better! Looks good.
    Everyone is doing a great job!

    I guess I'm done. Eyes can't take anymore.

    You guys do know how tall a two story building is right? Yours is easily as large as a six story flat, scorge! I don't think it matters that much though, awesome work and I love the style of yours GregorKali! Keep up the great work everyone!

    Epic work as always scorge!

    I´m going to try something completely different, some giant crab that collects piles of seaweed on its back, comes to land and wonders around pine tree forests dressed as a giant pine tree. Probably because he hunts deer and boars and what not. Or it just likes to be a tree..

    My concept is that it's a huge sort of lumbering, lazy, turtle-influenced giant, which instead of fighting uses its back crest ringed with green spiky fur to blend in with the giant conifers it lives among.

    I got a little into it without stopping to post WIPs, so here's a few all at once SORRY :

    Hey hey, entering a bit late :p And i have wayyy too many ideas bouncing around in my head. Trying to narrow it down to two; 1st - Insect like with long "pine" tail, 2nd - "upright" strong legs, maw on the underbelly, green poisonous needles along the lenght of the body and crazy eye stalks and tentacles.
    Pardon the crappy camera phone capture of the sketches.

    My shot. So far so good, as far as I am concerned
    Rendering will bring it closer to the brief. Skin and shell will have a texture similar to that of a pine tree, and all the spiky things will resemble pine needles. Background story is in development

    Hey guys! Some great stuff in here! Remember to post your finished entries in the Finals thread when they are ready, because there is just 12 hours left in this topic!

    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!

    Man, I wish I'd had more time. Couldn't do a background or any decent size references and in my hurry I even made the squirrel too big >>. Ah well. Hope you guys like it and good luck to all of you! There's some really good pieces in here :>.
