Scene: LARGE, SQUID-LIKE, BEAST IS CAUGHT IN THE HEADLIGHTS ON A LONELY ROAD
I hope I understand the subject right(sorry for my poor english)...I draw this at school and then I add some color on photoshop...actualy not finished but I have to post it...
wow this newthing is cool
OMFG! 2 days! What are we going to do for #1000?
2hrs 10mins, Photoshop.
I started this using just the standard smooth round brushs because doing gelatinous things with the textured brushs I usually use is a waste of time and effort, then it started to have this cartoony feel so I ran with it. I'm pretty happy with it, having not done cartoony stuff for a while, the lighting is a bit whack, ie why is it pitch black yet the whole ute lit? (lazy artist who hates backgrounds, thats why!!)
Slightly larger image here
Phew...haven't done dsg in ages. forgot how much fun it is
OpenCanvas! Mm, dark.
Some great takes on this.
matias' looks so squishy!
GreyBelly's reminds me of something out of a children's kooky book.
Neat perspectives from everyone; love to see all the different views.

Asbestos, fantastic work... the grit and texture to the scene feels very moody and creepy. I like the gentle fade of the fog from the left to right.
Man, these squid-deer! Nothing but trouble for drivers.
Some good posts lately.
I decided to try this one, awesome topic.
I was trying to go from the reflection of the eye of the squid... always wanted to try a pic like that:
Giant Squid always have the right of way.
Feh. Not scary enough. Thirddy ta Foaddeh Fie minnits.
I might have focused less on mountains and more on seashore as the backdrop for this scene.... I guess the term "Squidfoot" would be applicable here.
Critiques and overpaints of my work are both welcome and encouraged, as I am fairly new to the art of sketching.

Good work, guys...
I have no special plans for #1000... I'll just make up the topic on the spot as usual, and what kind of response it gets will be as difficult for me to predict as always.
Frankly, I don't know what I could do differently. I think that what will make it "special" or not will have everything to do with what kind of participation there is.
Although I have been suprised by how unpredictable the responses can be to any given topic, I will endeavour to come up with something extra cool.
Sorry I haven't been around for the past few days, by the way... My artistic energies for any given day are limited, and I've been working on making some small figurines that I try to sell.
Blah blah blah.
Okay, off I go to post today's topic...
i was having issues uploading this image onto the internet last night, that's why it didn't get posted earlier. sorry.
from doing this, i've learned that i need to work on light reflections off of slimy/wet surfaces and... uhm, just lighting in general.
