Space Dick for hire" Sam Gunn Intergalactic P.I.
"Space Dick for hire" Sam Gunn Intergalactic P.I.Originally Posted by Marco MazzoniI'm sure this will get taken the wrong way...
He can be human or just humanoid, as long as he's a detective capable of solving intergalactic mysteries.
1 = intergalactic
2 = Private Investigator
3 = NA

So this basically the guy who drives the car you did for the IDW?
Quick block-in for an idea I had, still mulling it over...
IF THIS POST DOES NOT CONTAIN SKETCHES OR PAINTINGS - REPRIMAND ME!
I am in. These CHOWs give me some direction artistically for the week which is exactly what I need at the moment. This one sounds like it could be fun too.
UPDATE! The rough pencils. This one I am going to keep black and white I think.
Almost done with this. I am keeping in in pencils, I really like the look of it. I would still LOVE some feedback!
Here is the final...COMMENTS WOULD BE WONDERFUL!!!!
It was a quiet day at the office when she walked in. Ally N. She was quiet a dame in the same way the ocean is a kind of wet. Sam Gunn and his partner Boobi the space monkey took to her quickly. Her planet was in trouble and her father murdered and she needed the best help. After all those guys turned her down, she came to Sam. Armed with his XOOM (pronounced zoom) equipment that not only provides life support but to magnify, analyze, and examine clues. Will Sam and Boobi be able to stop the impending meteor shower? How does it tie into the Supreme Commander? Can anyone, even their beautiful yet mysterious client, be trusted? And WHY IS THERE A SPACE MONKEY? ALL WILL BE ANSWERED IN SAM GUNN: INTERGALACTIC PI
initial fooling around sketch, dunno if I'll stick with it
decided to stick with it, started blocking in some color
as finished as it will ever get.
Hell, there's some great ideas coming through already!
Playing around with roughs... The first isn't right as you can't really see the P.I. properly, but is an attempt in the old pulp style look. The second is just messing around really... I've a couple more I'll clean up a bit and post later...
EDIT: Final Image. I don't think I'm going to submit this for the challenge as it misses the criteria of having the main character in full view, but I had fun doing it. Crits welcome!
inspired by a pic of android, here`s a fast one from me
This is kinda a cartoony self portrait in more of a indiana jones detective role
Crits needed and comments welcomed
alias Sam Gunn P.I.
pretending to be quantum phisics genius, Samuel put up a great busines on the net - to track the lost relatives and soulmates into the unified field. He is also owner of the net-busines of space lands and intergalactic PI company. The aliens are among us - we can track down the true huemans between your friends based on galactic data.
WIP2 - WHAT? A VIDEOGAME SUICIDE? MADAME, YOU ARE INSULTING MY INTEGRITY - THERE ARE 24 KIFES IN HIS BACK!
AND IF I CAN'T FIND THE... wait a minute.. you're not human - you are a samurai replicant aren't you? You needed this kid's lungs and his WOW account.
Now .. let me show you why they call me Mr. Space Dick - go ahead - draw your weappon - police is behind you my dear. Ha ha ha ... quite amusing one. Take him away boys and don;t call me for stupid ones like this - it was obvious from 3 das ago.

Sam, the private investigator, whose also kinda hot.
my homepage: http://www.trickstertoys.com
Filip - Love that design!! Really great old-school pulp feel to it!!
Here's my sketch, I went with something more cartoonish than what I normally do. Hope I have time to finish this one in time.
Sam Snail - he solves intergalactic crimes very very slowly. Good thing he always has his office with him on his back.
Here's my entry. Like Posh and Filip, I just couldn't resist the pulp book format either
I'm in. Thumbs and rough sketch.
I thought I was going to have more time to work on mine today (Sunday), but it didn't quite work out that way. I was at least able to get the character resolved in black and white. I'm still planning on adding color. Stop by my sketchbook later this week if you'd like to see a colored version
ha this isnt meant to go to the finals...just a diversion form my school work but i always remember listening into those investigator shows when i was younger and never knowing what the hell was going on...so if i were to actually finish this, the mystery of the space fart and carrot would be revealed!
btw: posh. you are a god
Pishposh-Mines so far. Aly you suck. I gotta step up to your level, dammit, why do you make me work so hard.
Mrgrumble-interested to what your going to do.
bryan young- nice thumbs as usual.
Kredepops- interesting take on the subject.
Dragon4lunch- Nice character, and textures. Still you having a problem with depth though in your environments.
I will comments and crits later for everyone I have missed. Back to painting.
hey guys. hoping to have something show for this comp. just putting something together at the moment, bit slowed up at the moment by the fact that i've broken my wrist. (flying peice of wood from a hydraulic wood splitter)
but should have something to show by the end of the day
well there we are, let me know what you think
Hi all, Newbie here with a first entry. I found this site by following a link of someone's entry for the steampunk airship captain cotw. I regret that i can't go back into the past to participate, but i can travel into the future to bring you Sam Gunn, Intergalactic Private Eye.
inks (not Final):
Decided to join in just to practice. Now onto EOW. I'm so behind with that one. T.T;;
filip, that's awesome. love his expression! haha
Poshspice, would've been kinda cool if we saw the character more (a mirror perhaps, but that's so much more work ). I really like the alien take.
dragon4lunch, 1 word, PWNAGE! you put my attempt to shame this round!
Couple of very nice entries so far. So heres mine. I'll continue to refine it when i have the time n hope i can get it updated in time for the poll. In the mean while crits are most welocomed.
edit: added a little bit of details n tighten things up a little bit. guess i'll call it done.
hmm...i realised this looks more like x-files and Man in Black...
This is my concept!
This is my first entry into a weekly activity. It is also the the first "painting" I have done solely in photoshop. It has plenty of weaknesses but it was fun to do and I learned a bit from doing it.
I can paint in Watercolour ok and I was trained to use Photoshop for image manipulation / commercial art. Mixing the two is a bit different though.
We dropped out of light speed near Hawking3. FTL always makes me queasy so I light a cigarette and wished I had a scotch. My smoking was an old bad habit but I liked the old habits, the old ways, and the old clothes. Hell, the newest thing I have is a mechanical left leg after the other got left behind in a firefight.
Well the old ways led me to an old job as a PI and now a new client willing to pay. The oldest thing I have is a pile of past due bils so I took the case. Even if it meant FTL travel.
Here's my WIP.
The idea is that Sam Gunn has rescued this Medusa-like damsel in distress but he doesn't realise she's actually trying to kill him with her snake hair...
Note she's keeping one eye on the situation while pretending to faint.
I don't know if I'll get to finish it. I was going to do a background of fiery explosions and space ships and stuff. Perhaps that's a bit over ambitious.
Hmm I haven't done a CHOW since Oblio took over. I think Ive covered all the particulars.
