In a desert landscape.

CUTE! Altho a little angular unless that is what you are going for with it?


07 July 2002, 06:58 PM
Finish it 'cause my girlfriend will love it! They look great even that simple.

07 July 2002, 08:28 PM
ok you've had a whole day where's the update man :bounce: I'm looking forward to seeing your little T-rex .

07 July 2002, 02:31 AM
Thanks for the feedback guys. Hereís another quick sketch

Iím going to change the angle, to show a better view of the sled.

looking very cool.

Thanks for the comp.

Here's an update, I added my contraption. It's a mobile adobe hut type thing.

That's great, but the POV in your first sketch was much better. The low viewpoint is great, gives a better impression of their character. Maybe you could just focus on the creatures and only suggest the contraption?

I love the idea of your little lizards but I agree with puddlefish ( I'm gonna have to start beating him to some of these threads I'm starting to sound like his yes man always agreeing with him :p ) go with the lizard-eye angle its much more dramatic .

07 July 2002, 08:14 PM
Thanks for the feedback guys, I couldn't agree with you more, I'll post a new sketch tonight.

07 July 2002, 02:53 AM

What do you think?

Should I add another lizard like in my second post?

07 July 2002, 04:20 AM
Yes thats my vote, I think the 3rd liz (like your 2nd pic) gives it much more depth/interest. :beer:

07 July 2002, 04:06 PM
go go go ! :love:

looks totally rad ! never give up !!!

07 July 2002, 03:51 PM
Kosher Sammy..........awesome.....:applause:

07 July 2002, 06:32 PM
Love it man thats much better

07 July 2002, 07:58 PM
Lookin good........

07 July 2002, 02:23 AM

I added the third t-rex back in, I think it looks better than just the two.

07 July 2002, 02:31 PM
Whats really cool is how small the beasts are...but they still look as if they can pull the weight.....:thumbsup:

07 July 2002, 02:48 PM
Impressive! Love it so far, keep us posted.

07 July 2002, 07:38 PM
cool style! :buttrock:
But the dinos look quite big now. Perhaps if you scale the close one up (about 150%)? Might add more depth, too.

07 July 2002, 08:04 AM
Thanks for the feedback guys

I scaled the close dino up a little and I'm now starting to add some color, it's still a wip

07 July 2002, 08:51 PM
Nice....your color is sweet as feet....

(I don't know what the hell that means):hmm:

07 July 2002, 05:00 PM
Are you gonna model it?

07 July 2002, 08:21 PM
Sorry Jacob I'm working on a rusty bucket model for some other project. Just don't have the time.

07 July 2002, 05:35 PM
That's some real nice texturing on the foreground dino. Looks very nice.:thumbsup:

07 July 2002, 07:31 PM
You should add a naked chick in some kind of exotic pose.

Final Image

Iím not happy with it. I kind of rushed it at the end.
