Two in a row? Man, you're making me proud over here.

Had to use some reference for the body, because I only had 20 min. Those with a high gamma setting might even see the síluette of someone in the window. Man, what a rush job!

It's a picture of an alien outside someone's bed window. It's from the point of view of someone laying on a bed and looking out the window and seeing the Alien.

Here is mine. About 20-30 minutes with sepia-tone pencil and paper.
Don't paint in photoshop, because I have a touchpad mouse, and a not-so-good laptop.


08 August 2004, 05:06 PM
I think there is nothing special to it, what you like is probably that ist all done with rather fast strokes, which brings a certain dynamic.

08 August 2004, 05:48 PM
Franz, I love your style

Photoshop and Mouse 10 + 40 minutes, kinda late. But I wanted to finish.

08 August 2004, 12:10 AM
Hey Franz, great loose style, really atmospheric!
