This is my first work posted on cgtalk. When I saw the subject I immediately thought of the book "1984." If you've read it you will understand my thought track. Enjoy! Done in painter classic with wacom intuos2.

One question since I'm a noob... how do you get the pics you attach to show up full size as opposed to a thumbnail link?

The_13: You have to put it on your own webspace and link it

Infested Dark Templar


2nd try with no lines, this time following Goro's tutorial. It's supposed to be the most beloved Overlord controlling some infested Dark Templars (or maybe some jedis, who knows) to bring glory to the Swarm! by the way, never could understand what kind of animal the Overlord is, maybe some kind of ill minded lobster, don't know...

Our beloved Overlord
Photoshop/Wacom/45 Minutes.

Patrolco: Nice one, good colors.
Ilikesoup: That was a funny movie. Blazing saddles rules as well.
Thebigxer: I like the turtle. The watercolor filter is a bit heavy though.
Goro: Good one. No bots eh?
Squee: mmm, beer....
Downwrdspiral: You do wicked thing with a trackball. Somebody should supply you with a wacom.
Rikaro: Nice, I like the hair.
TeoM: Nice, the mood reminds me a bit of spirited away.

this one is inspired by Arthur C. Clarke's "Childhood's End" where one day the overlords appear over every city...sound familiar??

painter / photoshop / wacom / 1hr

As always I enjoy everyone's sketch today with standouts IHMO:

Supervlieg: that cracks me up bigtime! reminds me of the song lyrics "we shall fight for bovine freedom..." :D
