:eek: are you sure it is your first sketch for the contest ??? argh it look like an advance skecth for me :cry:

cant wait to see more :beer:

You have a really interesting rendering style. The pic is cool to look at, but I'm having a hard time figuring out what's going on. Maybe try to add a bit more depth by varying the values a bit?-just a suggestion. Since it's still black and white, the readability issues may be resolved when you start coloring.
It's looking really cool, none the less! :thumbsup:

Also, make sure that your images are new beginning on March 16th, 2004. I'm sure I recognize that second image from another art forum and it will not be allowed for this contest.

That second one is really ql one... And I also have a hard time finding whats what on the pic. Clean ur lines a little bit, give more depth to the creature, like someone said before and do what u do best, free ur imagination :) Maybe more logical parts wouldn be bad, coz right now its a "mass" even if it looks ql.

Very impressive. I see u are a big fan of H.R.Giger's work. And I am also glad that u are inspired by his early Inkworks but with your own personal touch...

Great,... can't wait to see this continue:thumbsup:

thanks dude..

p.s. very cool stuff on your website.:surprised

03 March 2004, 06:05 PM
Yes, ther's some "Giger" in those, but that's not Giger. We can see your own style in those. Nice work, very detailled and all :)

I won't say the same for your comments hehe. Well, it may be only my opinion, but it's be nice if you commented a bit more your own pics. It can be interesting to see a bit of your thoughts along with your great pics ;)

Hi, Steven:
I must say yours is one of the best threads I've seen in the challenge. The concepts remind me Giger sketches, but near to abstraction, and the inking style, with those multiples lines, is great. I love the first concepts a lot. Last sketches, unfortunately, loose some of the originality and freshness. If I were you, I would develope the first sketches, for sure! But you are you, and I have no doubt you're going in a new interesting way. Go ahead!

04 April 2004, 08:43 PM
That's a new kinda rendering style for my part. It looks
good in this kinda concepts. But I must say I'm waiting for the
color wips. I think it will look great in colors.

Hard Creation

@hdri, thanks for the compliment :)
the first and second concept art is "old"...

Kirt/moderator :
"Also, make sure that your images are new beginning on March 16th, 2004. I'm sure I recognize that second image from another art forum and it will not be allowed for this contest.".... :cry:

@MorteR, thanks.. the color wips comming soon.
