sexy. some of the background looks a little flattened by the lighting, but it's cool none the less.
I just wanted you to know how impressed I've been with these last few pieces. You've really made a breakthrough.
Definitely agree with Coldkodiak.. I think it's happening mostly because there's too much illumination caused by the main light source on the back wall. It makes them look like they're closer than the perspective you have here suggests that you want.
Great work though. I love the detail on the Cthulu's clothes and face.
yeah that coat has a real nice tim bradstreet look to it. i likee alot.
the world is a diaper; let someone else change it.
Let me just drool for a second...
Man, youre good. Perhaps the only crit i can add is the flap of flesh overlapping his shoulder and upper arm. It seems out of place and much too stretched out. Still, very cool stuff.
oh man verry nice !
Very nice indeed. I like the mood and tone a lot. Maybe the wrinkles on his coat could've conveyed his great bulk a little bit more. Especially on the left half. Either way, good composition.
--- and _great_ work on the overhead lights. They look really old and heavy.
WOH!...your best yet!
another good one! keep rocking these out.
my only suggestion for this one is that the wall isn't receding behind the gurney/exam table. Maybe some copper or blood-induced warm highlights on the near edge will bring the table forward.
Are these Cthulhu pieces for Chaosium?
Oh God, Zoidberg no!
This is beautiful Tegehel. The lighting and environment tell it all.
Crit. : The 4 overhead lamps lack form and dimension. Of course I understand the one that's turned on shining down on the guy, but the others flatten out a bit. I think if the two further back were differentiated then the first two, that'd help. Or if one of em was super rusty and had a gungier look to it.
Another thing that might help is if there was a tiny bit of red reflected back onto the serated part of that deadly knife to sell the point a bit more and show off the edges of the knife against the dark tiles.
This is nit picking of course, but I think this is an awesome piece Tegehl.
I'll be waiting for you next post.
There is nothing wrong with using a photo to help you see things.
No one complains about life drawing,
so take a photo.
its easy, and will improve your piece greatly."
Wow, i really look up to all you pro`s and just all the talent here
It`s so not what you would normally expect when you read the words "Alien Abduction"
Normally i would think of some hightech spaceship where they inverstigate a human with hightech scanning devices or something.
But now it looks like a dark creepy kitchen of some sort, that`s what seperates the "men from the boys" in art i think....the guts to do it totally different
Keep up the good work, although i am sure you will offcourse
Crazy stuff, Cyril! I love it. Keep up the good work.
Many thanks for your feedback and kind words. I can't respond to you all right now, I've got a deadline soon and I want to post another quickie before going back to work. I do appreciate the comments very much, be sure of that.
I've taken in consideration what you've said, and here are the changes.
- details on feet, making them slightly more visible
- darken the background, hopefully bringing back the wall
- darken the 2 back lamps, for the same reason.
- minor tweaks
What do you think? too dark now? heh.
PS: sevnraiz, funny you should say that, because indeed, FUTURAMA was originally the idea for this painting, and I was going to make a "real" version of Zoidberg operating on Fry, but decided to go Lovecraftian instead. Good call.
JeffZNY: here ya go.
Very cool! In a disturbing way..hehe. Love it! No crits from me!
Though I like the original saw better as well.
The original saw, as per on the sketch, is full (plain). I imagine you mean you prefer the "open" one
Well, the truth is that this saw, the full one, is truly a 1920's autopsy tool, whereas the open saw (I don't know the right name for it) is a more modern tool.
It's true that sometimes it's better to go with what looks cool than what is realistic. I'll think about it. Thanks.
The open bone saw looks "cooler" in and of itself, but the solid one works better compositionally.
