kicking ass concept.
I'm liking the thumbs and the sketches the most actually. The final piece is BUSY man! Especially with all the patterns on its skin. Still it is a neat concept, really extravagant stuff.
Will be the squid guy be made into a model?
good job! all the best for the vote.
ah, what is that robotic hand or whatever in the water?
your creature look so powerful, that, in the final piece the water could be much more "furious".
Nice work, love your concepts
Keep It up like that!
awezome, the final illustartion is a little messy though.
Like most other people said, the concept work is just fantastic but the final illustration needs some value tweaking. I converted it to black and white and your creature all but disappeared. It seems that the upper right light source would effect her more, given how much its lighting up that splash of water. I'd mask her off and throw curves adjustment layer over her, and then gradiate it to low opacity as it progresses to the lower left, or some similar such tweak.
Wonderfull art, man. This looks like something that could be some kind of a boss in Final Fantasy or something.
cool idea, but a bit busy and hard to read as a shape, in my opinion. the textures take it over the top as well, it could use a bit more simplification and less crazy detailing and colors.
nice work on all the prelim material, tho, you have some really nice sketches going on.
Amazing, i actualy like the crazy and hard on the eye detailing that layil didnt enjoy so much. I feel it brings a great portion of much needed chaos to the image!
great stuff, and great thumbnail concepts as well!
i still have no idea what this dominance war stuff is haha
Spookybabydoll – Thanks
Walnut – Thanks man, ya I have been getting mixed crits on it. I can see how it could come across as too busy though, for sure. I knew it was going to be a challenge to try and make it work, so I just went for it. It was definitely a good learning experience for sure.
Hunterkiller – Thanks man...ya I am planning on making it into a model at some point I have just been pretty busy doing a million other things at the moment.
Jordyskateboardy – Thanks!
zweiDee – Thanks man ....the robotic hand there relates to the storyline that they gave us for Dominance War. Basically, I just wanted to hint at the fact that she just wiped out all of these droids.
Anthriel – Thanks!
Olivier_P – Thanks man... I am a huge fan of your work those water pieces you posted a while back are really awesome ...ya I am going to go back and spend some more time on that water I’m still not happy with it.
Grizzliman – Thanks!
dkounios – Thanks!
Lotet – Thanks man ya I was going for a little loser feel with the final illustration given her movement and what she was suppose to be doing.
sourgasm – Thanks ...Cheers dude!...your right....I did forget to take the illustration back down to gray scale after I finished ....It wasn’t as bad on my monitor I think than yours probably but I definitely see what your saying though
LORD M – Thanks!
Layil – Thanks!...Ya thanks for the crit I really appreciate it!... Ya I can see what your saying for sure.....like I had mentioned earlier I new it was going to be a challenge to try and keep the illustration from getting to busy.
Pavel Sokov – Thanks man ya overall I really like the piece with the exception of a few little things here and there that I am going to fix soon and then movin on...haha....Ya I didn’t know about Dominance War until it was too late last year...Its fun stuff there is a lot of great entries, ridiculous amounts of people I can’t imagine having to be a judge.
Looks like I might get stung just by looking at that! Damn...
A model would definitely be outrageous.
A little of this and that, hopefully nothing explodes right away....
Cool work! my only crit... is that Kautumaise could of been posed with more of a in your face kinda shot IMO. The current pose IMO lacks the power that this creature truly wields.
can someone give me a link to this dominance war thing? im really curious, everyone is posting entries to it, and i dont know what it is
great work and beautiful character deisign
Thanks everyone for all the kind words and crits! I really appreciate it.
biscuitninja - lol thanks man!
Kaffinated - Thanks man I will definitely keep that in mind for next time.
Pavel Sokov - Hey, I don't know if you where able to find the Dominance War link yet?....but here it is....
