Latest Update: Coloring WIP: playing with ideas

Still getting a grasp of the creature, I've added a bit of detail and fleshed it out a bit more. Added some veins and started developing the fleshy look of the creature, I feel the head is coming along nicely. Still not sure exactly where i'm going with it, but letting it evolve Ad-hoc. I might try to develop both these ideas, but i'm mostly playing with the scale of the creature. Any feedback on both or either of the images would be helpful for me at this point.

I have been looking around at all the other ideas and drawings etc. I'm very impressed with all the talent on here.... I hope to even be mentioned in the same breath as the artists here. Also I notice alot of differing techniques. I never really worked at my drawing skills too much because I was mainly a multi-media artist, however you have all inspired me to develop my drawing skills further. I look forward already to the next competition, as alot more thought will be put into composition and ideas before i even start. However at this point for me it is more about developing a drawing and completing it within the timeline indicated.

I'm also curious if anyone knows of any good materials (books, magazines?) about drawing that I could pick up that might help stimulate my ideas. Perhaps something on composition theory? as I see this being the weakest part of my drawing skills right now as well as using perspective to add interest.

thanks all.

I am just going to talk from the top of my head.. hopping that it could sort of relate to what you may be going for;

Now when there is a mutual situation that takes form as to parazyte... the popular situation would be that the host is much larger or stronger, or at the least more evolved than the parazyte.
And when parazyte organisms are envolved, it is a very rare case that the parazyte actually kills the host (until it is done with it :p ... hey EVEN the alien let the host live!)

Now I am SURE you thought of the most of these.. and your sketch is very basically for what CAN come out of it rather than what you are going to be doing as it is.
But to your subject line I personally search for a 'thurst' in the parazyte.. and I search for a leaching off the host.. in this first sketch I fear the man is dying at this very moment.. or struggling not to (The parazyte might be done with the host.. dunno)
Actually I would expect at first thought that the host is not even aware of the leeching. Here he looks like he has been attacked by a preditor up to a point.

I really liked your character.. and I can really picture it with the series of teeth.. I mean everything is great about it all.
And as far as I understand you are also going for the 'each is a master (in control), and at the same time the servent' type theme.
A unique idea to what I have seen in the threads so far...

I am sure you will do just great!
Good luck!

Ps; Just noticed how much I wrote.. I really had thought of one or two lines. Please don't take it as a crit.. just a series of stuff that came to my mind personally the moment I saw the image.

Worked a small bit more... fleshing out more about the texture of the beast. Was thinking a bit about some things that were said about a "parasite" etc... and the final concept may change, however I want to keep widdling away and see how much this changes by the time i get to fleshing out the human.

A good source to learn thing's from composition and perspective is from fine art. I find it helpful to search on www.corbis.com (http://www.corbis.com) for fine art because there are several rennissance pictures there ect and you can learn alot from looking at them. like how the positon on the page ect.. Ofcourse that teach's a more traditional style than comic book's but it's similar basics.



You can search google for Andrew Loomis . His book's are available online and while they mostly deal with atonomy he does talk about poistioning, perspective and compositon too.
