*edit, latest WIP image

This should be fun! Entering a bit late but I'll do my best.

Good luck to all!

figuring out this thread stuff... seems the engine doesn't automatically post WIP's...

simple idea, "Battle of TEN thousand teeth". (probably change the title more or less along the way)
should be fun

another composition doodle... overall this feels a bit better in terms of scale.

Very nice, dynamic layout you have got there. I like the spirals, they guide the eye very nicely towards focus points.

I don't know why, but this image feels like winter to me - maybe the white splash? Just an idea ;).

progress of my sculpt so far (super rough). I also just drew in some smaller teeth in photoshop as a paintover to see if I'm going in the right direction

11 November 2012, 03:29 PM
some more quick test paintovers with the teeth in PS. At this point I need to retopologize the mesh as I don't have enough fidelity to work with...

11 November 2012, 03:35 PM
Really nice start!
All the best. :applause:

11 November 2012, 04:00 PM

11 November 2012, 04:34 PM

11 November 2012, 06:41 PM
Looking very nice!

11 November 2012, 11:46 PM
It's really coming along! Very nice!

11 November 2012, 10:45 AM
Martin! This looks excellent. Looking forward to seeing your progress, you ridiculously talented son of a b**ch :D

11 November 2012, 12:58 AM
Crazy good Martin!

One of the things that got me was looking at your sketch and seeing this person leaping into the jaws of certain death! I mean it is just epic! Leaves you to wonder, will this warrior become a burp afterthought, the pun of those who say I told you so...or will he by some chance be victorious...and they will lift their drinks with respect as this hero walks by.

Can't wait to see this progress.

Good luck to you.

update time, started laying out the teeth and refining the sculpt. Haven't worked much on the neck besides giving it the basic pose for the final. I did have a tongue in there, but decided on removing it as I thought it distracted from the teeth which I really want to emphasize in the image. Thoughts welcome ;p

slightly more side on angle

@ thebest, KMcNamara, mic, OZ, adib, azazel, grumposaur - thanks for the support!

AJ - dude! long time, how you been??

CG-Rich, thanks alot. I think it's cool that art can leave you with that question and tell a story!

11 November 2012, 05:16 PM
now thats a spiky creature and promises good action! will it have more eyes than two? by example... ten?
interesting work!

12 December 2012, 12:04 PM
small update on the environment, slow going... I hope I can finish!

12 December 2012, 09:22 PM
Nice sculpt coming along there. The environment work is looking good, but it seems to me you'd want that massive mouth to take up more of the picture. IMHO. :D

12 December 2012, 11:20 AM

I'm back! Was away during the festive season so I haven't gotten very far. Small update, not impressive, but still WIP ;p
not sure if I can finish, will probably work on this after the deadline

12 December 2012, 07:25 PM
The shallow dof blur on the foreground doesn't really work here. And now I keep thinking the monsters head should be in the lower part of the image, not upper - but maybe it'll change with the character in place. Would love to see it finished.

Haven't had time to update the thread, but here is the latest WIP. Other WIP in the challenge page. Started working on the comp and getting some renders out. Still alot to do, comments welcome!
