WOHOOO!!! ME DONE!!! I wud luv to have spent more friggin time on this,I cudda refined things a lil more,it looks a lil soft now but BAH! I’m proud of it.



I lightened the doggy.and did sum other tweakage.



All thanks to u guys for sticking by,GROUP HUG!!! (hey who touched my ass)



Hope guys like,



best of luck to the rest of ya.



Now for the description. (thanks arc for the name)



THE MASSAQUISTIC SURREALISTIC



The faceless….dull creatures they are….they show no emotion...they can’t, their species where created to work, who would have known they would have become smart, they want to take out their pain on all humans, mainly because of their jealousy towards us, they can’t show emotion, but we can…….therefore they should serve the faceless, for the faceless feel they are handicapped.



They force us to smile at any costs, but it is not their intention to punish us in any way, they just want everybody to be happy, what they don’t understand is, it doesn’t quite work that way, just because a human being smiles does not make them a happy person. the faceless believe if they are smiling, the person is happy to serve them at any occasion



What’s this though? Why is this girl running away, why is she not smiling? the faceless are confused, why…



they want to talk to her, she will not escape, set out the pets to capture them.



……………………………



the chaos massacre begins

great story eh?



Faq?



Why are their only women slaves in this piece?



Faceless found men much less attractive, and cause destruction, therefore they where banished from the planet, as reproduction control, a few where kept.



What’s with em having no nipples?



Again. part of the reproduction process, it must be balanced, no extra milk for no one.



Wtf? That girl is gold?



Yep,why? I dunno,ask her hehehe…

Story overview

this is based around destruction of earth,many humans have already escaped so they can survive on other planets,however,a few where captured by *the faceless* and used as servants.

The faceless are angered by lack on enthusiasm (sp?) they don't like to see dull faces,therefore the servants are forced to smile and never show any other emotion.

my piece will be based around the escape of a servant,or maybe the death of one.

the facesless also keep giant pets as guards to make sure know one can escape.

thats a ruff idea of the story for ya.

well dali is one of my biggest inspirations,and as far as him being in this piece will not only show how much i appreciate his art,but will be for a reason...HE IS MY MASTER!!

lol,so why not make him a master in this piece,he will be the leading the *faceless*,just a quick sketch.

just an inprogress sketch,exploring how my characters will be portrayed,ofcourse inspired by dali's surrealness,i emphasised the muscles to show how much work these servants have to do.

the faceless will be in the back along with there pets...and dali.this will not be my final composition,its just practice.it will look less cartoony once its painted.

its hard to understand,cos its just lineart,but it will all come together in colour.

colour progress soon...again,this won't be my final though.

they are forced to smile by wires pulled by the faceless,those tall evil do-ers.

Holy crap! That sketch of your composition is really creepy. And the small color test you just posted makes the woman look like she's made of rotted meat! I love the chunckiness of the paint. This is quite a disturbing piece. Does it make me a sick bastard to want to see how it turns out?

pretty sick and disturbing mate! I like where this is going. I like that faceless dude idea you had. Well... I think it would be cool not to have him faceless, but let him have Salvador's face with that characteristic mustache of his.

Anyways, great work allready, good luck, I will keep an eye out for this one

theres 3 of those faceless guys in the back in the lineart if u look carfully,but i'm colouring now so they will become more clear.

and everyone else thanks so much for the support,i want to freak u out hehe.

i dunno about giving my faceless guy... a face,lol maybe a faceless guy with just a mustache?? thats sounds like a great idea.

hehe i'll make an update in like 6hrs.

Yo NOOB!

original concept! not cliché at all! No sir!

The forced smile could be your ACE in this game! If you really capture (getting there) the suffering in the grins you're the man! You chose tough emotions but still got plenty of time!
I'm waiting to see what the focus of your image will be...

Correction:

Never assume that you've got plenty of time, cause that leads to no good :P

Keep going!

03-24-2005, 02:27 PM
thanks u guys appreciated,turns out i won't finish colouring that cos its pointless,as its not gunna be my final,so why continue,that test was enough to see if my colours where up to grade and if i cud achieve the rough style i wanted.

anywho,i think i'll start working on my official compisition,i'm thinking of doing something landscape,one of the servants will try to escape,basically ripping the wires from the mouth *the ones that force them to smile* and she will be running whilst the other servants watch on and the faceless and dali looking on.

the scene will be dark,kinda in the mountains or rocky area trees,clouds lighting?? rain??

any more ideas feel free to drop by.i'll post sum sketches of characters later just so i can make sure i know what they look like.i don't get confused when colouring.

Nice ideas. Maybe you should draw that gaint dog eating his master.

pushav
03-24-2005, 05:06 PM
I was going to use that idea but someone will come along and say that ain't right(or even banned off of the forum. Did you get your membership back at ledheavy anyway?). I may sit back and read my Cannon busters (took long enuff 4 the book 2 come out) to get inspired lol.

NOOB!
03-24-2005, 05:10 PM
naw man pushav,i'm not bothered bout led no more,thats a life time ago haha,i still check back there now again and i see senseless arguments over crap.and the same at xilla too,but now xilla has become just and art forum?? so its cool there i don't post there often though.

i really think u shud take on religion,it won't offend fellow artists.

as for me,i'm gunna get started on my compostion in about an hour or so,hope to hear back from u.

Hey NOOB!,

Though it might be trite, you could place tears streaking down the cheecks to show the slaves are frowning on the inside. Also, adding sress-out wrinkles and sweat could help with making their anguish a focal point. I'm sure when you add color, the filth, and emotion will be clear and unmistakable.

Also, why get implants if you're not allowed to keep your nipples? Oh. Torture. Right. :buttrock:

Are the male slaves equally denuded, or have they all been eaten by the bone beasts? Probably kept away from the women as a population control measure.

Beautifully morbid sketches and detailed nightmare. Keep it nasty! :buttrock:

i want to make this pic exciting,and bizarre,the great thing about drawing dali style is anatomy doesn\'t matter hah.thats why i have chosen such a detailed scene,i will explain whats happeneing and why its happening soon.

........................................
basically the escaping girl in the bottom left has caused the faceless,to break into panic,causing the wires *wrapped around the faceless's fingers, that hold there smiles* to pull even harder , leaving all the servants in pain,The faceless's pets are trying to stop the mayhem and are also trying to capture the girl that is escaping.ONE FROWN TO DESTROY THEM ALL!!!

uhm does that make sense??

Hi! I browsed your gallery yesterday and you sure have a wide range of style. And Thats Good! I like the cat a lot, my friend draws cats like that and he's from Iran so maybe you have some persian "influence" in you ;)

Great joba-job!

thank u all for the neat comments!

i haven't heard of simon bisley tariq but i'll do a google search for him.thanks

ninja i haven't really thought about colour scheme yet,only style of painting,but i guess it will be slightly saturated,look at anything by dali,that what i'm aiming for.

nebz,thanks.

fuego,i do have persian influence in me actually.

tekno ur freaked out by the cat?? good,exactly what i'm aiming for.

i'll post the final lineart tommorow guys,hope to hear from most of u.

Hi, Noob!

I'm not really into the "masters" thing but Dali was always a bit of an exception with his strange, skiny creatures! :)
I just realized, looking at your first sketches - they make me think of Mojo and the Spineless from the X-Men stories. LOL!
I do think it's a really cool concept and it has a unique look to it.
Good going and good luck!:thumbsup:

Hiya man, about that question where to take the colouring, u know as well as i do that every direction has its advantages, i mean, organics suit this work excellent, but it also needs atmosphere of the moodyness. in the end its all about balancing the elements. I know u can do it man:buttrock:

Yo NOOB!

It's hard to say anything about your colors until we can see them in one comp!
It's nice that you're working your characters carefully one at a time, but the comp needs to be defined sooner or later...

or will you repose and reposition each and every one of your characters?
hmmm

waiting....

Lovely Dali style but with more horror taste to it. I love it! And especially that faceless guy who is painted awesome. Those little details on his chest makes him so real. I hope u'll use that techniwue on all characters. The dog still needs some more define strokes, some light tones. And thats all from me :) Great stuff!

A fantastic Dali-inspired piece, not to mention a great background stroy to go with it. That caricature of Dali (second one) was just genius... As for the dog/cat beasts, the fact the dog one has no ears really freaks me out, though I kinda like the drowned look of the cat. As a fellow lover of dali's style and technical competence, I shall keep an eye on how this progresses as you add colour.

Lots of great character design.
Only one concern is the compostion wise, every characters are spread all over the image.
I think it makes out of focus.
Good process.
I would like to see more.
Keep it up!

NOOB!
03-31-2005, 04:52 PM
i guess if i squashed all the characters together the focus wud be much better

hahaha.

thanks for commenting,but not all the characters are the main focus,the main point of the image is mayhem,thus this heavy composition.

i think it will become allot clearer as colour is added.

Its very chaotic with so much commotion that it is hard to fucus on. Yet after reading the "story overview" I begin to understand why it is drawn in that way. I wonder what it will be like when the colors are into place.

NOOB!
04-01-2005, 08:43 PM
yep thats why i wanted hermine that responded six posts ago to look back in the thread,cos any one thats just viewed this thread won't understand the concept.

its choatic,its confusing,its Dali esq.

and thanks for the reply,hope u check back tommorow for a colour update.

well as u can see,i've started blocking in sum colour,i'll be working back to front.

don't worry it won't be all dark in the final,these are just sum base colours.

and i'll probably lose most of the lineart as i go along.

i've already gone ahead with the clouds and sea,but its not even they aren't a 3rd done,but i figured i'd post sum progress.

glad to see some colour... will watch ur progress colosly in painting stage. clouds look moddy. good. put a bit more colour in though (subtle though) as it looks to metalic ish at mo.

you might want to revise your color scheme a bit, try to get your colors work in perfect harmony - now your image is lacking depth due the unconnected colors. A good way to solve this just sketch with color with no attention whatsoever on details. You can start by using monochromatic pallette or just 2 colors, which is usually easiest way to do it - you can always tweak towards more colors later on. Concentrate more on values and depth, and stay away from gray, white and black alltogether while working with color.

Cloud textures and sketch looks quite promising, especially the cloud textures, though you shouldn't bother with it too much at this stage.

Keep up, and good luck!

thanks u guys!

ranath thanks for the crits,as sed its mostly the under painting,i tend to work from dark up to light,so everything u mentioned shud come about.......

...eventually...

now your image is lacking depth due the unconnected colors.


ok wait a sec i missed that...so what colours are unconnected??? all??? maybe the sea is a lil too different.

suggestions wud be very helpfull!

Hoi! I really like your concepts, but I can't help to feel that you'r latest WIP has perhaps too many points of interest? Anyway, I really like your "surreal-style", keep this up and you will have a nice result in the end! :)

NOOB!
04-02-2005, 02:22 PM
too many parts interest u?? thats great!! haha

don't worry colours will sort that out.

right now i need sum tips and crits...

hi there,
I think you may want to get rid of the gray for now, and just work with the value of blue
otherwise loks great a little busy but great

NOOB!
04-02-2005, 05:54 PM
well as u guys insist,i'll lose the grey.

cos clouds are never grey.:shrug:


don't dis regard that fact that this is a surreal painting guys,not realistic :thumbsup:

artjunkie
04-02-2005, 06:05 PM
Yeah, NOOB... I agree with you about being able to choose subjective colours for your piece because it IS a surreal painting. And besides... clouds can appear almost any colour under the right conditions.

Love your style, by the way. Can't wait to see it finished! Cheers.

nice work. I like the clouds and keep the grey/gray. Digital sketching is starting to grow on me. Oh yeah a lot of people have never really seen my work in colors before. I can paint a little. I try. I am more of a sketch artist. Pencils and paper all the way. Fo' sho'

artjunkie :thanks,well i half agree with sum of the crits people have given,but its probably because people haven't really read the rest of the thread and haven't understood the concept and inspiration,and i don't blame em cos there are only human,i tend not to read any earlier posts in other peoples threads either.

glad u like my style.

nebz:thanks my man,i guess thats a good thing,but i still got lots of crap to fix.

you are right to put dark in the back, so the character will be more visible.

My! What a busy post this is. Very ambitious idea, gonna be a lot of work. I like yr drawing. Been to yr website as well. Nicely put together. How long you been going? You a London guy you gotta know the forbidden planet. Was there the other day and saw someone you might like: Moebius. You know him? Draws like a god.

NOOB!
04-03-2005, 04:07 PM
forbidden planet near tottenham court rd station? sure,haven't been there in quite a while though! i've been there twice since they moved and got a bigger store.i used to go there to pick up comics..but i don't really lke comics no more,i moved to animation *2d that is*

never heard of mobieus i'll look for him online.

glad u like my pic.

right now i'm waiting for Ranath to drop me a crit.sed he was gunna do a paint over or sumthin.

04-03-2005, 05:09 PM
arggghh!! i decided i don't like those clouds at all...i went to continue working on the colours opened it up...and thought...HELL NO!!

HYELP!

this is in red so u will read,i have a few ideas

1.how about i show more sky than cloud??i'm thinking of doin these cool kinda swirly clouds i saw in a dali painting.

2.how about i get rid of the blue sea? and make that clouds or mist,that wud make the faceless look much taller?

sounds good?? please gimme more input on colouring,don't seem to be getting any,don't be scared.....i don't bite...unless u want me too..

*that last part applies to gurls only*

more ideas,more input guys MOOOORE!! :cry:

Aidenn
04-03-2005, 05:12 PM
Yeah, I think more sky and less clouds would be nice. I don't know about sky/water proportions though, you should do a colour sketch first.

NOOB!
04-03-2005, 05:17 PM
u think i shud get rid of the water completly??

now that i look at it colored it kinda looks out of place.....



hmm..need MORE opinions!!!

eupee
04-03-2005, 05:34 PM
you imagination is wild! i say keep the water, it breaks the image up a bit. also you got the freaky dudes emerging from it, where are they gonna live otherwise, they cant live on just mist?!?!?! this is cool, though id like to see some nice colour in the characters to take away the dull. MORE SKY LESS CLOUDS! I say keep water though, cos mist will be harder to colour and make look good. Keep it UP

NOOB!
04-03-2005, 05:41 PM
i was thinkin of losing the water cos most mountains *yeh look i have mountains in there* are above the clouds,and i thought if i cud make that whole area clouds,sky and mist,it wud make it more obvious we looking down on the scene.

I'm so unsure,and confused...this is fun hehehe.

i still need a few more opinions on the clouds and sea dilema before i can make my final decision.

nebezial
04-03-2005, 05:53 PM
go with the mist man, i for one can tell u from personal experience it makes big things look bigger, btw did u fix the tablet?

NOOB!
04-03-2005, 06:11 PM
tablet is all gud now my man,

but now my mouse doesn't work,but thats ok...cos i can just use my wacom mouse,wohoo!

man i want to do mist,the sea kinda looks outta perspective anyway,cos if we are viewing from above,the horizon line shud be much lower,and i feel that takes away from the pic.

do u agree with that Aidenn? hope so,don't want u too feel i'm not open to ur opinion,maybe i'll do two versions.

nebezial,do u agree i shud show more sky than cloud?

opinions from anyone else wud be much appreciated too.

still thinkin.

check ya later!

nebezial
04-03-2005, 06:25 PM
ok my personal opinion is that this works fine and ill tell u why, it gives a feeling of vast space controlled by the masters, more sky would indeed suggest a lower horiyon and demand a perspective change, it doesnt matter it is dali style, it would tick the eye off. i get like this in the early stages, but the reason i like ur work so much is the fact that from any stage i can see it develop to perfection, in the end it wont matter if there is more sky or sea, but how the colours balance out. there is one other reason why i like it as it is, the overall horisontal lining gives a perspective feeling. personally MAYBE i would use a more yellowish light, it helps to accentuate the outline of the masters, but thats just my way of doing things, hope i could help u even for a little bit man. ps GOOD, U R BACK IN BUSINESS:D

NOOB!
04-03-2005, 06:53 PM
:cry: dude u just sed u wanted mist and to get rid of the sea,and now u say u like the horizon,which is caused by the sea,waaaaaah!

that yellow light sounds pretty cool.

the clouds....i will do new ones...but i will keep the old ones in a seperate file,if no one likes the new clouds,i will just copy and paste the new ones back in.

cos i a came across another dali painting the other day with these cool clouds....inspiration

so i'm still keepin in with the dali style.
and thanks for the *perfection* comment :thumbsup: lol

i'll get back to work today,and hopefully i'll have an update for mid weak.

but please drop more opinions guys.

thanks!

Adamos
04-03-2005, 06:56 PM
Okay here's my opinion!

Not yet on the colors, but first on your mountain/mist water situation:

The mountains are from a side view, but the water behind it is viewed slightly from the top! That's not exactly realistic, but I'd expect surrealness from a picture inspired by Dalí :) so that's okay, but you have to decide what you want (so many of us are confused hehe, and yes that IS fun, who wants to be in total control of art anyway?! ummm okay I do...:) someday!... )

So if you want a view from the top, then either your characters are huge (too close to the bird from a bird's view), or your vision on this piece is psychedelic. Both are acceptable :) . I'd say that the mist in the background is reeeallly cool as it is now. the water needs a lot of work, and your mountains are still integrated with the foreground, you haven't separated them from the characters. By the way, what's the focal point of your image? Where do you want to drive the eye? Cause now I'd be looking from one point to another, without a reason. Lotsa information in there, got to pop a couple of stuff out. (Maybe maximum 2-3 elements) I really don't want to influence you too much, so I'll go with a "let's wait and see where you go" - and then I'll be more than greatful to crit once more. Glad you asked me!

But try a couple of cg choice award guys for crits, (PM them and be respectful, (not that you're disrespectful or anything) I'm just saying do your research and after complimenting a couple of their inspiring works I'm sure you'll get wonderful crits, - I did :) )

cheerio
