first attempt on working on my entry for this competition, really not much to look at,didn't really want to create a main subject here but the whole city itself inhabited by humans,aliens and "uplifted beings"..

art style that i did in this one is very much cartoon like thinking that it would
really fit in the mood that i want to bring in this one.

good luck to all!

Wow! Very Impressive work. I love the illustrated look of your piece. You definately stand out from the crowd. I can't offer any critiques. It stands on it's own. You seem to be a master of your craft. That's incredible. Great work.

Cool! An intersection, in some cosmopolitan city, full of citizens of diverse origin. I like the concept and your style. Lots of unique invention mixed in with 20th century influences.

Dude! Your stuff rocks! I wish you posted your earlier working stages like rough pencil sketches for example, instead of jumping straight to detailed wip. I would have like to learn something from you.

Overall color palette is nice. I almost couldn't identify the uplifted dolphin, because it looked like a seahorse right now, the head especially.

Solid stuff here!

thanks for the comments Jerome, also for reminding me about posting earlier working stages
i really have miss out posting that one,i'll upload that later,anyways seen you're work also, you've been doing well.

from here i have just added another character to complete the group of performers and also expand the image height that eventually changes my composition a little bit thinking it would help give enough space to an already crowded image..

Hi Reynan, its finally good to see your sketches. I like them alot. I don't have any crits to say because your style is so unique and beautiful. I'm looking forward to its completion!

Perhaps I can suggest making the Neo-Dolphin look more like a dolphin, especially for its head part.

Wow! Very unusual and original style! You're obviously strongly influenced by comics, but you took a step further.

come up with an idea of changing both arm and replacing it with a bionic arm instead
which really helps preserve the dolphins original form as if it's never mutated like the previous one,

added a background, more buildings and etc. and made some changes for the dolphins overall look.

Here’s my final image..

It’s basically about a group of ‘circus performers’ doing their spectacular circus act in the middle of a city intersection that caught the attention of the crowd pedestrians.

Instead of a stage performance at a theatre I considered doing an outdoor scene were in the city intersection becomes the center stage, the pedestrians suddenly becomes the audience, headlights from vehicles becomes the spotlights and also gives me an opportunity in making the whole city as a background thinking that it will make the image more interesting than the usual on stage performance.
The performers are composing of humans, aliens and uplifted clients such as neo-dolphin and a neo-gorilla.

So there’s the explanation, just a short summary; as you can see many
things are going on in that image, I’ll just let the viewers look at it in every detail, explaining it one by one would make this artwork not fun to look at anymore.

Hope you like it; really have fun doing this one.

Thanks for the comments from other entrants, really appreciate that.

Hope to see you all again soon on a next cg challenge.

Good luck to all!
