Really promising topic, I'll be sure to throw something in here when I've finished my other sketches today.
wow goran...that's sweet.
todays humble entry, 1 hour in photoshop
Great work btw goran, loving your style...
Gave it a quick try
metal skulls with purple flesh growing around
haha the front skull reminds me of monte python...
an hour in photoshop....work freed me up to play on this one.
Hamsta - Without the knowledge of the pinkish sky, I like the cartoonish appearances of the surrounding boulderheads. Par performance.
Goran - You've got the wisdom at all 10 fingertips. You should enter the "Garbage Drop-Off Planet" EOW if you have time, I'd love to see your interpretation.
Jonah - On my computer screen the smoke seems hazy (However unnatural that sounds.) The hood of your character could be more circular and could have a source of light or a torch lighting the way. Unless he's wearing fog proof glasses frames -
Redehlert - It speaks the language of your username. There's helmet shine, temperature, and a path of promise in front of him. TRAVEL CHANNEL SPECIAL: Across the Plains of the CA Wasteland.
All the time I have for now.
Keep doing you
Here's mine... had a tough time drawing tonight, just felt kinda off... inspired by the Borgs in Star Trek and a little Easter Island where they have the big stone head statues around... any crits/comments welcome
Burrito - Nice image. I like you Bio-Mech head design
Airrunkle - Looks like we have another chapter in the Star Wars saga where a jedi knight is about to take on a bunch of Bio-Mech Giants.
Redehlert - I really like your foggy atmosphere and all of the Bio-Mechs in the BG. Cool colors too. What is happening with the little flying thing in the middle though? Is it shooting your traveler with a laser?
Wezefire - Nice idea. I thought your purple flesh were purple worms eating the remains/brains...
Supialoctopod - Very dark an ominous. good job.
Updownleftright - I like your traveler idea.
Goran - I've seen your work during my time while lurking around these parts. Good stuff. I really like your Bio-Mech head designs and the isolated bridge that your traveler is crossing. The "grungy" drawing style is cool too... nice work... I look forward to seeing more of you work.
Jonah - Traveler... check, Foggy landscape... check, Giant Bio-Mechanoid Heads... check... nice job.
Hamsta - love the cartoony stlye of your heads...
vulgar- Thank you man.
burrito- Nice one ,on the trail of H,R.Giger in the best way possible.
AphexTweak-Thank you for naming my style (The "grungy" drawing style)
And thank you for your kind words. I like that expression on the face of your
To all the others ,nice work ,keep the pressure guys .
wow....thanks for the support! and aphex, the little fella is a carry over from the DSG 1176. check that one and you'll know what's goin' on. sometimes it's easier to do these doodles if there is an element or theme to carry through.
Here´s my take for today,
I´m still curious as to why I can´t upload my images here.. (is it Level restricted or?)
Anyway, here´s my take for today:
Redehlert: Nice one, how long did it take you?
Supialoctopod: Nice atmosphere!
Goran: Love your pen-work
Burrito: I´d like to see more of this Mecha type.
Hasmta: Nice cartoonie style you´ve got there.
Thanks AphexTweak! I like how your head looks like "what are you doing here" kinda look. its pretty sweet

Was trying to avoiding doing laundry, so...
Kinda inspired by Anry Nemos way of flushing it out.
Okay, to make a long story short, looong time no dsg but here goes
@Goran: A sweet piece as allways.
@redehlert: Very nice concept and atmo. Really foggy. And MAN... izzat a fellow suthern culture on the skids Fan??? Makes me wanna walk, like a cat. AaauuuuuuUUUUU.
@burrito: Gigeresk but unique nonetheless.
@AphexTweak: Resistance is futile. Word. Nice concept.
And without further ado here´s my two cents. Brush pen and PS. Mebbe about one and a half 2 two hrs.
Can´t decide wich one looks better. 600px wide or 800px. What the heck. Have both.

my first post in a long while. great topic!
nice one sillikone.....i really like that.
As always, I am awed by the quality of the DSG entries. I'm still new at the wacom, trying to practice and learn bit by bit!
Tried for an ariel-type view of the world to create scale...spent about an hour.
Well, I was going for speed and getting the general idea across over rendering details... and you can definately tell that details were a low priority!
Since I don't have a tablet, most of the (very few) details were added in with pencil on a printout, then rescanned in. That part didn't work out so bad actually.

about 10 minutes
