This is my first concept art for my Entrie. Its supposed to become an picture of the both sides of Death.

This is my second step of painting. I put the girl on a "horse", so that she became one with it. Her body is old and no much longer able to live. So it's like a litte symbiose between the mechanical part and the humen brain. Neithe the "horse" nore the human beeing could live allone.

I searched for a background to create a better atmosphere, but I found no good result, I think.

06 June 2004, 11:42 PM (

I decidet to leave out the background, couse the time is running out and so this is my final picture.

GREAT Picture!!!! :applause: :applause: :applause:

I think it will be ranked in the upper field.
And it doesnt matter that you left the creature without background.

:thumbsup: Great character DMario...really lovely style of working...

I liked the background, must looks good without as the character is so strong...

good luck and sorry I missed yet another great thread right until the end :applause: :applause: :thumbsup:

closest reference for the beast you found was "horse" .. lol! EEK! lol!

why the chain and the pole ?

07 July 2004, 01:21 PM
-Thank you guys for watching my picture!!!-

...the thing is you reallly need the perfected background to understand the cause of the chain. In my earliest considerations I planed a complexer constellation with more "acters". The beast-girl stand in front under the grave of her husband, stretched her hand to his fingers, but never reached one (couse of the cains). So the chains should work as a symbol for the abyss between the >normal-human-death< and the >never ending-machine-"death"<, which divides this people till to the end of all days. They'll never come together again, even not after the death...(very religious thing!)

hope I could describe what I thougt and you could understand a little bit :D

So good luck for your painting Squibbit !!! best wishes!!!

hey thanks for the explanation DMario and good luck to you too !

I like your choice to have removed the background you put in, although I wish I could have seen the image you described in the final. The character is very stong, and I have to say the way you altered the horse is creepy and interesting! I also like that you used (at least I think) hand done tools and left in some of their texture as well as the computer stuff. Good work, and Good luck in the voting.:scream:
