    DSG 844: Strange Scene: GROUP FINDS SCALEY "UNICORN' AMIDST MISTY FIELD OF EGGS

    So... not a typical unicorn at all. "Unicorn" might only be loose description of this creature. I imagine that this could be as much Sci-Fi as it could be Fantasy.

    The eggs could be very different from, say, the chicken egg. Maybe they're more like squid eggs, or something insect-like, or maybe something out of that old Dr. Suess book...

    And then the group... Well, it might be a wizard and some elves, or it might be some modern-day spelunkers, or perhaps some spacesuit-wearin' folk.

    The first humans to visit "Greenhouse" Paul G. Haman and Jean Du-Glacee, their primary objective was to collect tissue from the "unicorns," the largest of that planets living forms. here they can be seen in their rover, next to the lander.
    painter, just under an hour I think.

    Unicorn

    Hey all, I dont know why but I was really inspired by this topic, I'm pretty sure it was the word 'spelunker' that did it. Anyways, waaay longer than my usual time frame, this one was 4 1/2 hours painting in photoshop. I pretty much got an image in my head straight away, so I was able just to paint it without thinking to much. Unfortunantly, while not thinking to much I made it not quite a field of eggs and my mist is pretty sparce. Anyway nice Toipic William B Hand, I had fun!!!


    Cheers guys

    sweet pic matias!

    ...and i was JUST watchin aliens last night too!

    my only crit would be that it could use a little more dynamic lighting
    to emphasize the drama (maybe see less of the empty cave space in the top corners?)
    of course, this wsa only a sketch...so take my crit lightly

    my pic iz in the works....

    The egg hunters

    This thing took me 3 hours. I tried to use photoshop but the lines always seem to end up looking jagged on the curves when you make a quick stroke. I ended up useing Alias Sketchbook Pro 2. It's super responsive but doesn't have any way to do textures which kinda sucks.

    goran - Thats a great composition. I like how you framed the unicorn and your use of lighting is superb.
    llothcat - Really awesome job. I'm loving the glow in there. Looks like something you would see in a high end comic book

    Everybody's really creative with this one.
    Props to Matias, Goran, and Trevor.
    MattGamer, I'd like to see a fully rendered version!
    Awesome stuff everybody!

    Trevor: Very nice, great environment work
    atomicsushi: Beatiful muted colors, and clean form. Both of them. But wheres the group
    hsman77: Cool interpretation
    DavePalumbo: Hah cool another oil painter, nice work
    Goran: Cool brush work! that texture saves alot of work i bet.
    Matias: Awesome. Alienesque

    was suprised to see another oil painting. I did mine in 2 hours as well. This is my 4th oil painting ever, it was hard to do detail at such a small size. its 6"x6" wet on wet oils on masonite. The reflection on the paint made it hard to photograph


    edit: better picture

    Shady...

    Here we go:



    Remarkably like before, but now completely different.

    Also...

    Grimlohk: I'm really digging the oil painting. Nice work w/ the impasto, and the brush strokes describe the form of the "unicorn" really well. The guy on the far left bothers me, though. Too hard to read.
    Trevor: Awesome. I didn't even notice the guy in the background the first time I looked. The red on the "unicorn" is a nice contrast. I'm not sure if pumping the red up or keeping it more subtle would have helped the piece. Maybe neither
    Voraz: A bit difficult to read. I kept thinking the enitre animal was an emerging head, and the eggs feel a bit flat. Nice contrast w/ the red people vs. the green eggs, though.
    Atomicsushi: I like the "cracked" feel of the creature, and the reflected light works well.
    Goran: Wish I knew the name of that scratchy, line thing. It's really cool. Really nice, illustrative image.
    Hamsta: Seems rather flat to me. The eggs have really strong highlights that pop right out, while the black creatures lack depth. Actually, the smallest one works the best as a sort of sillhouette in the distance.
    SkyWookie: I like the clouds and the flying creatures a lot, but the foreground figures seem stiff.
    And machzero, llothcat, matias, DavePalumbo, and hsman- all good pieces.
