This one is about the next generation of CG Artist... they will have electronic and mechanic implants for every tools they will need...

You've got a very cool drawing style. I'm trying to figure out if you used any type of filter on that last one, it's got such a liquid feel to it. Awesome, keep up the good work :)

Another concept i've been working on... As you can see i'm more in mechaorganic. Don't want to finish in a common metallic boring style, want to find a compromise...

I have to add that i might give a try to the 2D challenge with one of these concept, if only i find one i fancy!!!

Any comments on my entries are more than welcome!!!

hi man ^^

your style is unique !!!
great concept!

just one thing, for the moment it s hard for me to see the mechanic part ! but the biological mixed body are great !!

keep on the good work !!

reminds me of beauty and the beast!

Your drawing and idea are very interesting , hope to see the 3D model .

03-25-2004, 06:17 PM
Thanks again guys... I'll try to put more in evidence the mechanics in the next few days!!!

I'll definitly do the 3D version of one of these concept, and maybe a 2D complete version of another one. I'm not gonna do like the Alienware challenge, and i want to finish it on time...

Before that i want to do few other sketches, till end of next week, then i'll make my choice.

Which one of these do you prefer at the moment? What do you think i could do to make them better... i'll pay attention to any comments!!!

New concept of a dancer... Need to make a choice between all those concepts!!!
Any idea which one i should choose?

03-30-2004, 07:54 AM
Some nice concept sketches. I haven't a clue which to go for, Sugest maybe choose 2 of your fav. and expand on them a bit more the CG Artist could be cool.

But put up some more sketches or just go with the one you most feel like.

I personally recon go with the one you enjoy or want to work with the most not neseserily the one that is most likely to win as you can really get stuck into it. But hey thats just me.

03-30-2004, 09:21 AM
THanks for your reply SigFire... For the moment i'm thinking i should go for CGArtist, but i'm giving me till the end of this week to make a decision and working on other concept.
I'll make my final choice during the week end...

Anyway i might continue to work some of them in 2D and maybe enter the 2D challenge if they're not to bad!!!

Go ahead , the 2D challenge is waiting for you ! :hmm:
