    Wow Carn, I'm brand new here and have already seen you improve just in this thread.

    The ink is great, I think the inked bg was a good idea.

    Take care !

    I'm going to start getting in on these in June if you keep doing them, Rick.

    I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.

    Assignment # 6 Pulp Magazine cover
    Type : 2 week assignment (week 1- sketches, week 2- ink/color)
    Subject: Military vehicle and men fighting dinosaur

    Description: A pulp magazine has hired you to illustrate their cover based on a story in the magazine. What they are looking for is a strong, bold image of a WWI or WWII soldiers and vehicles (tank, planes, boats, etc.) in a prehistoric setting, fighting off ferocious dinosaurs. Space needs to be left open at the top for title, which will be provided next week. This is a two week assignment, right now they need to see composition and sketches, at the deadline they will go over trouble areas. Good luck.


    Deadline CLOSED

    The first week deadline is just for composition sketches, layout, design, etc.
    The second week deadline is for inks and color.

    Well as I don't have a scanner at home, I'll just do my best. If a PS sketch isnt acceptable, I'll take a photo of my work with my digi-camera and you can figure it out from there.

    if possible i'd also like to know what you thought about last week's assignment outcome. your computer crashing is a rather lame excuse for not retyping the whole thing after some days.

    I don't care what you use to sketch or finish a picture, digital or traditional, your choice. My computer problems have been a real issue, and a large annoyance, but it will be taken care of soon. I wanted to make sure the commenting was useful, mainly because my time will be more limited in the next few weeks, and
    I was trying to go for effeciency. Let me know if you guys want them and I'll start up again.

    Carnifex- i like the line work and rendering, wish there was more contrast between lights and darks (heavier shadows would help) Although the trees tell us we're outside, more detail to the foreground would help (rocks, tombstones, etc.) Overall, good work.

    Ron Brown- necromancer and background kick ass, wish the detail was a lot stronger on the undead, they get lost in the scenery.

    coco- not a bad pic for short time spent on it, not a big fan of the composition, but love the skeleton hand giving the finger.

    Gildorek- strong rendering, like the skeleton holding the book, loses a little with the lack of background, and the necromancer doesn't really scream "EVIL"

    Ancient Kitten- i actually like the darker sketch more then the clean version. Effective composition, problem areas are that the undead don't look dead, more like thugs, and the scenery doesn't yell cemetary. Also, although artistic liscence is good, most art directors won't care for the genre and time period change. This is an illustration activity, and the guidlines need to be followed. Still like though, and hope you join in on others.

    dogfood- the greyscale is very pleasing too me, and my comp pics up the tombstones in the back, very dynamic poses, lovely. My problem is that the necromancer doesn't stand out enough as a necromancer, some good design elements would help seperate him more from the zombies (tattoos, jewelry, armor, etc.)

    Aremah- very basic and to the point, followed direction and it works well for because of that. More time on the background would have made this stronger, and maybe zombies in the foreground.

    Hi there, I´ve been lurking around for a while, now my first post on this topic.
    technical B-pencil on 130g/m² sketch paper. I had to take a photo of it ´cause the paper format is with 240*320mm larger than my scanner .
    I´ve chosen WWI elements, imho WWII is a bit outworn.

    rick -i'm all in for the comments. they help us knowing what an art director might probably say. sorry if i offended you with the computer crash comment.
    panzermensch -cool.the only thing is the raptor to the right at the bottom-he looks flat and not at all like the others. if you have photoshop, highten the brightness and contrast abit.

    panzermensch, that is sweet. Very nice action. I went with WWI, as well (same reason). This is actually more of a value study (one of three that I chose), but I won't have the time prior to the deadline to come up with more. I will have the time next week to do the finished one (if the crick don't rise). There are 3 guys in there (shooter, driver, backseater).

    Okay, not really sure where I want to go so I made up some quick thumbnails and I'm going to go from there. I made 7, well 8 really but one of them is just missing everything, and a few don't exactly follow the comments...

    Anyway, just thought I'd show what I had and a quick description of each, in case you can't figure it out.



    1. Scared soldier, T-Rex, Biplanes in sky.
    2.Tanks, Soldiers, Charging Tric, river.
    3. Pilot view (inside aircraft), ptero.
    4. (really confusing) A raptor leaping at 3 soldiers (helmet at bottom) in jungle.
    5. Tank commander and 2nd tank aiming at Long neck in trees
    6. Unfinished - its 2 gun emplacements, but no idea what to put in the blank space.
    7. Soldiers being charged, commander pointing 'fire!'
    8. City street, gun emplacement and tank at end of street, pov of charging trics. That big lumpy thing in the middle background is a statue.

    Yeah I know, lot of charging dinos, but its what my brain seems to be focusing on. If someone wants to use one, or has any comments, go for it. I'm still trying to figure out which direction I want to go.

    dogfood's is great, and so is panzers for that matter - coco - great ideas, i thought up some of the same ones too, like the barricade and the fighter pilot POV, good stuff

    i hope you guys can understand whats going on here - its SUPPOSED to be a pinup girl poster on some bunker wall, and the pinup girl is cowering in fear because a dinosaur is evidently in front of her. of course we only see the dino's shadow --- i guess i wanted a kind of melodramatic tension

    kinda weird, i know - but when i think of pulp i think of scantily clad women; pinup girls

    i apologize for the terrible image quality - i dont have a scanner and my digital cam is pretty lame (the flash washes everything out, but without the flash you cant see anything)

    This is the funnest assignment yet.



    The Guy in the lower right will be closer to the viewer in the final. The two week deadline is a good idea.

    I've made a few thumbnails myself. The one I chose to sketch out in more detail is quite similar to at least two posted works here (I didn't do it earlier because I was, when I could find a bit of time to draw, working on the SW redesign assignment).

    Anyway, I feel discouraged somehow, seeing people get the same ideas, and thinking they'll pull off a better job than me anyway. In any case, I don't really feel like drawing this right now. Any advice, if something like this has happened to anyone in the past?

    Aremah, when you sit down and work out the finish, and post it here, you'll see that it will be in fact quite different from the other entries, no matter what the sketch looked like. I get the feeling that i know the results before drawing often, but i when i'm done and look at what i did, it's sometimes completely different from what i had in mind.
    Also, this activity is afaik not about competition, but about pushing your own and each others abilities. Push yourself to the best you can do, and you can go from there. When i posted my zombies, i hadn't even realized where i went wrong with my drawing.

    Coco- Seems we had similar ideas as well but everyone interprets it different in the finish. Hope you guys don't mind me jumping in but this looks like fun, especially this one.
    Dogfood - I think yours is my favorite so far.
    Panzermensch- I think your is a good start but would benifit with some variation in the scale of your figures, specifically something in the foreground
    to draw the viewer in.
    Ancient Kitten- I can see where your going on it, it looks goo so far.

    Couple ideas- Fun assignment, has lots of potential.

    Unfortunately, I'm going to have to skip this one. Exam session just started (in two schools, nonetheless), and I'm really lacking inspiration, so there's no way I could trudge through to a final piece before the deadline.

    Next time.

    I took several elements from my thumbs, as well as adding in a few more, and came up with this as my sketch:
