Work has kept me a stranger from these boards lately, but will see what I can do (the prizes are amazing!)

Good luck all, looking forward to seeing some cool stuff.

Having a real hard time coming up with something cool for this competition. But something is slowly developing...I think.

Decided on something a bit different- finally. Went away from the common futuristic machine flesh theme to a more fantasy based... here is a concept sketch of my final conceptual decision...

Down to the wire as usual. Just finished the Line Art, so here it is. Gonna try and lay down some colour for the Coloring WIP, then hammer away at it until the deadline. Last minute deal, just like real life concepting... hehehe. wish I would have had more time for this. good luck all, some great stuff out there.

Here is my colouring WIP...gonna crank away on it tonight and see where I end up. Hopefully be able to finish it up tomorrow night, then a day to "look away" and then do any final tweaks on the last day. Comments welcome.

Thats it for tonight, will take a fresh look at it in the morning and adjust brightness, contrast, colours, sharpness, etc, etc, etc. Any comments will be appreciated. Good luck all- some great stuff here for this comp.

Looked at my last submission on my laptop (nice screen) and noticed how much my colour is out of whack on my PC monitor...here is another version- colour adjusted to look correctly on this machine.. (crossing fingers)

The contrast and color look good on my machines here... is there any way to standardize settings on a monitor that will closely resemble factory settings of most monitors?? Any advice would be appreciated it.

thanks

:thumbsup: Great idea and great character....I'm unfortunately one of those who went forwards in time and by the time I came up with a more woody / organic concept I was too far along, so congratulations on coming up with something which stands out.

Lovely style and you really get a sense of the size and weight of the beast in your final.


Congratulations and Good Luck!!! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

MrFreeman,

thanks for the comments! Glad you like him. I noticed alot of entries that were going forward in time, futuristic, high tech (so to speak) so I decided to kinda go "low tech", almost back in time.

I really apreciate your comments! thanks very much.

Hiya man. I like low tech too! Its a really nice revisit back to ancient times. hehe Looking very solid and has a nice feel to him. Could pass off as a warcraft character dude hehe :beer:

Hey Mike ..
First of all i wanna encourage u , u have a Very Good Potencial
i like the way u present the concept and i believe u r on the right track

i just want to grab ur attention to consider studying a bit of Body Perespective , it will help u so much to make the action of the figure look Clearer ,though u are very good at giving the right Impression

Good Luck
