I can't wait to see what you have in mind for us this time!

10 October 2004, 10:46 AM (

warmin up ... :)

Gwottiboog , da planit muncher , sits on a star , relaxing after a
planet hunt . Very few planets ever escapeGwottiboog , cause they
rarely run away. Maybe they don't see him coming .
Atop Gwottiboog's head grows the tree of wisdom , all leafless and
withered , surrounded by eternal autumn.
In a net on da planit munchers back are his captured planets.
Today , Gwottiboog is going to have a green one .
It is a planet that belonged to the
invincible Warramucho Empire , like all
the other planets in the net.This green
one is the planet of heroes ; veterans
of thousands of battles have retired
here to enjoy the planets magnificient
baths , beaches and hotels.
They will all be eaten by Gwottiboog.
Countless of civilizations disappear into da planit muncher's maw.

10 October 2004, 11:24 AM
Oh, Sweet! Love the humour approach. Almost like a childs tale for future kids. Can't wait to see this coloured.

10 October 2004, 11:32 AM
that's fantastic!! really really fantastic!!

10 October 2004, 12:35 PM
Hey dude! Wow! Nice concept :) Good luck to you also

10 October 2004, 12:53 PM
Here we go again.

Already subscribed to your thread. It will be fun to follow your progress.:thumbsup:

Nice concept, I wish I had your drawing skills.


El Toro
10 October 2004, 02:02 PM
Really cool concept, good luck! :thumbsup:

10 October 2004, 03:18 PM
wow that's awesome!! :bounce: keep 'em coming :thumbsup:

10 October 2004, 03:41 PM
Have you ever thought about trying to get some of these ideas published in a book. I love your story telling, it's fantasy pure. and you really seem to have a lot of talent for it :thumbsup:

10 October 2004, 03:57 PM
ahumm ... err.. these are more like TAKES from stories , flyingP,
not whole stories.

yea maybe one or two of them could be made into a story ,
but my written language is simple and crude , you seen it ....
all like :
" dat man go to forist , it not all well there , man feel dizzy.
still thers great treasure in the woods , the gnome had promised,
so the man presses on. While walking dizzines grows stronger,
like a bear. Man feel fingertips oddly wet. he touch index finger
against thumb and his dizzy head starts tingling with odd sensation.
-weird, he thinks. he press fingers together stronger and PAIN
erupts in his head ! -YEEAARRGH , he screams and falls to the ground.
-what was that ? his achy thoughts wonder and still lying on
his back he raises his hands before his eyes and sees white stuff
coming from under his fingernails. He suddenly realizes with horror
what the stuff is ... his BRAINS ! Through blurred vision, his
consciousness leaving him , the man sees the gnome - same one
that guided him to the forest- approaching him with a straw in hand..."


10 October 2004, 03:59 PM
Cool story and concept sketch! I can't wait to see what you come up with. :D

10 October 2004, 04:03 PM
Nice concept!:) Good luck!!!:thumbsup:

10 October 2004, 04:27 PM
ahumm ... err.. these are more like TAKES from stories , flyingP,
not whole stories.

believe or not Squibbit that's one of the things a like about them :D

10 October 2004, 04:30 PM
The concept and the background of this is definitely one of the most original in the comp. Awesome stuff squibbit.


10 October 2004, 04:30 PM
really cool, i woulda never thought of something like that :P Got alot to learn

10 October 2004, 06:15 PM (

what does tongue in cheek mean ?

The Bontazodans have found a wormhole in
the Ulmociin nebula . The wormhole
exists between the eyes of a giant
space snail and is activated only when
the eyestalks are fully extended .
On the other side of the wormhole the
Bontazodans found a strange new world.
They of course decided to explore this
world , but with since the wormhole
only opened on extremely irregular
intervals , and because they couldn't
yet control the wormhole in any way,
the Bontazodans decided to build an
outpost on the otherside. To this
outpost they would then bring supplies
and from there they would explore the
new world. The first time the wormhole
opened again after the construction of
the outpost the Bontazodans found their
precious building in smoking ruins.
A huge spacemonster was attacking it
with its rainbow-colored , hairy tail.
Their sensors recieving distress calls
and detecting lifesigns from the
smoking outpost , the Bontazodans
decided to send all their spacefleet
to bring down the monster and resque
their fellows from the ruins. In this
image , taken by a Bontazodan recon
vessel , the space monster is shown
defeated , bombarded to unconsciousness,
ready to be taken back for studies in
the Bontazodan homeworld .

10 October 2004, 06:33 PM
Nice one Squibbit, glad to see you're on form! :applause:

10 October 2004, 12:31 AM
hahaha, and that dust-cleaner (or whatever it's called) burning up in defeat!

Hey Squbbit, happy to see you're lucid as usual :-D !!!

10 October 2004, 06:47 AM
Hi Panu.............Time for more fun and creativity eh.I will keep an eye out for your new creations and thoughts,and look forward to them.............GWOTTIBOOG............Now that is one intense and interesting creature.very nice.Bring on more........Until later,keep the creative juices flowing.........:arteest:

El Toro
10 October 2004, 07:31 AM
Although it's a nice concept I really think you should go for the Gwottiboog, that one is just too great.

10 October 2004, 08:01 AM

That starts super good I prefer the second for the exploitation
of the prospect.
Good Luck...

10 October 2004, 04:34 PM
Awesome ideas so far. You have too much creativity! My vote so far goes to your first concept, but I hope you have a few more to show us. I love your style and ideas! :thumbsup:

10 October 2004, 05:05 PM (

YEP ,You knew it !! The Oishmud
Civilization's had enough !
There is no room for everybody , people
are dropping of planets , there's just
so many of them and there's no place for
them to go ! ´They got their hyperdrives
n such and that's sweet if you want to
populate a galaxy , but when the
galaxy's filled and you want to go on
and move on the road ends , the
distances become too great for the
Oishmud technology to span and the
Oishmudan brains to comprehend. Any
attempt to hyperjump from galaxy to
another result in the brains of the
astronauts refusing to follow the
jumpships so they get left behind and
freeze in space.
there is no way to stop this.
There is something to do , though. The
Oishmudans send envoys to their gods
complaining that they designed the
world wrong and that there needs to be
a change ! All envoys get turned back.
Outraged , the Oishmudans climb to their
greatest spaceships , mighty vessels
capable of catapulting stored lonely
stars found in space great distances,
going nova when they hit their targets.
The Oishmudan ships launch an
unimaginably huge assault on the gods,
taking each one by surprise and
burning several of them to ashes with
their NovaPults and DisbeliefRayguns.
The gods quickly take up arms to defend
their creation against the galaxy of
starving , maddened , desperate

10 October 2004, 05:31 PM
Heyaa!! You're incredible...It's great to see you here again with some others...Yur work, as usual is crazy..I think u'r crazy..Very good luck to you...see you soon.

10 October 2004, 05:37 PM
Blimey... loadsa stuff!!

The second and third images are interesting ideas.... but i still reeeeally love that first one...

Keep on truckin'....

10 October 2004, 08:40 PM
Concepts of the second image is very crazy, very original the inclusion of referring personages the constellations.

10 October 2004, 09:07 PM
I’d like to see you pursue the constellation idea in your third concept. Extremely original and believe it or not, kind of amusing.

10 October 2004, 09:46 PM
You've done all three in 1 day?!? You guys are two fast for me.

10 October 2004, 04:39 AM
squibs youre back in the game bud, i missed seeing all of those great ideas pouring out of your head, keep em coming. I wish you all the best in the challenge mate.:beer: :thumbsup:

10 October 2004, 05:45 AM
hey, nice to see fellow Finn in this contest

I think you have good approach to this, only originality can win and your first sketch had very interesting concept, too. Others are more or less chaotic, but hey, what's wrong with it? :twisted:

10 October 2004, 02:59 PM
hey it's mad how much happens on these contest threads in two days !

I been away from internet cause I had two wisdom teeth removed and
I haven't been feeling too good since then , just been resting n suffering n stuff

thanks everybody for all the input , I think Gwottiboog's my favourite of the
sketches so far , too.
Will try to make the next ideas even better and the skecthes too , stay tuned :)

10 October 2004, 04:47 PM
squibbit : ...The wormhole exists between the eyes of a giant
space snail and is activated only when
the eyestalks are fully extended...

That's it ! I was wondering everytime I did so. This stupid wormhole gives me such a headache.... I don't know if I'll be able to go on with this contest... LoL

Hello squibbit. Happy to see you here again. Good luck:bounce:

10 October 2004, 05:16 PM
Hi Sqibbit,
get well soon!
Dentist for me is always a nightmare. That reminds me: I have to go there before an of the year :D

Till now your first concept is also my favorite. But I am sure there will be a lot more to come.


10 October 2004, 05:21 PM
You are doing a very good job jugling your ideas! I like your designs so far. Now if only I can start soon... dammed those overnight deliveries. (my tablet isn't here yet)....

10 October 2004, 07:25 PM
LOL , spacesnail , thanks for the laughs !! nice to see you again, too !

hey russel , yea I gotta tell , they told me to relax at the dentist's
and I did , repeatedly , cause every five seconds or so I found every
muscle in my body tense and my skeleton arched , stll hurting a bit.. :)

Yaroslav99 , I juggle alot , too much fun not to :) ,
though I decided not to do it in this contest...
worked well , huh ?
I know , I dont have wacom at home, only at work,
so for example the next sketch I'm gonna post has
been made with mouse only , but I'm used to working
with mouse :/

k , now a reel 'serious' image !!!!!!!!

Mighty Cimergan Empire comes to end
when the Empress Herself lands on the
planet Kenou , capital of the Fiffel
Federation , with a huge landing force
to accept an unconditional surrender
from Commander Sabre , Chief of the
Fiffelian Armed Forces.
The Fiffel Federation lost 65 % of its
space fleet to the war with the
Cimergans , but what remains have been
hidden under a newly devised shield
generator in Kenou and its moon Paital.
The new shield needs only about 100
feet of water around the ship it
protects and it completely foils all
Cimergan sensors.
Bored , the Empress is not going to go
through the formal negotiations routine
and just orders a fighter to bomb
Commander Sabre and the island he waits
for on the negotiations to begin , to
The fighter approaches and sends the bomb away and immediately two missiles
head toward the bomb from under the
water to intercept it. At the same
time the hidden fleet emerges from
under the water and send their missliles
up to annihilate the Empress' landing
force. Her ships in space are surprised
by the rest of the Fiffel forces that
charge from the moon of Paital.
All ships destroyed belong to the core
of Cimergan fleet , being its major
offensive and defensive organ and the
empire disintegrates to smaller nations,
returning to relyong only on planetary

10 October 2004, 09:35 PM
Ohhh, now thats nice! Almost like the opening scene in Saving Private Ryan but instead of soldiers getting taking out at first.. its entire ships! I love the idea of underwater ships taking the fleet with missles. Sick.

10 October 2004, 09:36 PM
Man I love all your concepts! Keep rocking mate and good luck!

Weepeth the Queen , weepeth the King .
Weepeth the whole nation of Yeppeldee ,
for the Royal Sniffer has abandoned the
good rulers of the nation. Just out of
the castle and into the woods it walked.
The King and Queen are heartbroken ,
what in the world was it that they had
done wrong ? What had they done to
make the Royal Sniffer leave their side?

To make matters worse , the Sniffer is
soon found in the woods , but it is not
coming back. It sleeps by the side of
the new King , for whomever the Royal
Sniffer sides with is the purest of heart
in the Kingdom and the leader of the
nation. The Royal Sniffer's judgment
is infallible. Or so is thought.
MoonQuad , the inventor , a dubious
machine-creature , carefully closed
the secret compartment hidden in his
body , making sure the vent of the
compartment was open enough to let
the scent of the Irriso-flower reach the
nostrils of the Royal Sniffer , who lay
sleeping at his feet. Being the only
thing that attracted the sniffer more
than Goodness and Righteousness
and Leadership , the flower was best
kept near the creature , but hidden
from the sight of others .

There were many who doubted MoonQuad,
doubetd him very much. But they couldn't
argue with the judgement of the Most
Honorable Royal Sniffer . So they decided
to make sure everything would be right and
hired a private detective , one Crosco Dillo ,
for the job. They soon realized Crosco would
have to hurry cause no more than three days
after Crosco had been hired MoonQuad had
sent fleet after fleet of Yeppeldeean space
navy to make allies with nations as dubious
as MoonQuad himself and then some.
The rest of the Yeppeldeean navy was to
enslave those of the former allies that would
protest the new alliances.

10 October 2004, 01:47 AM
Hiya Squibbit: You got some nice concepts goig on here....great work :thumbsup:

10 October 2004, 07:38 AM
oooohhhh I do like the last one, another fantastic show your putting on here Squibbit :applause:

10 October 2004, 07:40 AM
HAhAhAhahhAh... love that last one.... they look like steam ships!!?

nice style too!!

The previous one's a cool idea too...

10 October 2004, 07:43 AM
that guy standing on beach, give him a mate with longbow, and make him shoot those ships down.

I like the ink drawing

10 October 2004, 11:27 AM
Best concept so far...looks like Grimm Brothers book ilustrations. Love the moons.

10 October 2004, 12:30 PM
What ideas and illustrations! I'll just shut up, sit in the corner and wait that u post 5 or maybe 10 more of them :) It will be fun.

10 October 2004, 12:32 PM
i like especially the last concept, great style and original approach! It reminds for me more Gulliver or baron Munchasen story than Grimm book illustrations, great idea :applause:

10 October 2004, 12:37 PM
Your concepts remind me Mundodisco of Terry Pratchett, no visually but the ideas.

10 October 2004, 01:11 PM
I have to join the club.

:bounce:The last one!!! :bounce:

I really like this concept. Please don't do another grand space battle. There are so many more in this challenge. This concept is exactly in the way I expected it to be. Very Squibbitish. Go for it.


10 October 2004, 01:26 PM
man your style and your mind are one of a kind.. your concepts and drawings are so good! this latest concpet drawing is my favourite but im having trouble following the story.. haha.. too out there for me... i love it!

10 October 2004, 02:33 PM
Whatever that thing with moons/faces is, it's definitely lovely. And steam ships, it's tempting to go that way too :)

10 October 2004, 02:58 PM
The fisrt and fourth are my favorites, lots of humor in them. They give a diferent take on the subject. Keep going.

10 October 2004, 04:11 PM
The last concept was really, really cool. Don't quite see yet how you'd wanna implement that in the challenge, but it's still awesome. Just one question: what software did you use to paint it? Or perhaps it's natural media?

10 October 2004, 06:48 PM
your conecpts are cool, and i think your story tlling style, especially in the first two coecepts, reminds me of douglas adams...

good show!

10 October 2004, 08:18 AM
-Thhaanks flyinP !

-duddlebug , yea steamships !! kinda something like steampunk,
Jules Verne , Arcanum , childhood stories , Captain Nemo , that Smashing
Pumpkins video , stuff like that :)

-Ranath , hmm, maybe a bow that shoots Stingers or sumthin..

-andreasrocha , yea I came up with the moon idea and wrapped the
story around that

-NinjaASSN , i just may post a few less sketches this competition to
get a better end result , having more time to work on the pic.
In machineflesh contest it was like 2 months of concepts and less than
1 doing the actual pic , which almost wasn't enough :)

-Hecartha , yea Muncausen , forgot that one , thanks ! Another mention of
the Grimm book , dunno if I've heard about that one , gotta check that out

-LuisNCT , k , gotta check that one out too , haven't read that many books :)

-Russel , eh ,umm , sorry , grand space battle coming up in the next sketch,
guess I have one "no-bg-story-just-the-pic" concept in each competition

-thanks eupee, azazel & hentsteph !

-voodoofactory , I'm not quite sure how I would implement it either...Anywayz,
it's pencil on paper , colored a bit in photoshop and layed on a background photo
of an old yellowed paper

- gabrielsimon , douglas adams grrreat! always something from his crazy stuff
hopefully in my concepts !

yea thanks all , next up , as mentioned , Grand Space Opera skecth with no story :

10 October 2004, 08:41 AM (


10 October 2004, 08:43 AM
hehehe... i remember what happened at machineflesh challenge :) its just that ur ideas r so fascinating that its a great pleasure watching them. Not that all of them till now arent good enough, its the other way... all of them r great! :) I prefer the visual of 3. sketch (charge) and idea of weepeth the nation... also the weepeth characters r just amazing (king is my favorite).

10 October 2004, 08:43 AM
OMG! Keep that!

10 October 2004, 10:26 AM
Hey Squibbit,

Latest concept has a cool collage effect going, almost like a poster for a Movie....nice colouring. Keep up the good work :thumbsup:

10 October 2004, 12:54 PM
Cool ship with the eyes and pionted teeth.

Bishoppess of Death
10 October 2004, 04:55 PM
Nice. I like the color scheme (and the lady mentally electrifying the guy in armor) but the greenish ships in the bottom are bugging me. They keep taking my eye out of the picture (when I know they should probably be drawing me in). I think part of that is because of the direction the fish ship is going. It's passing the rest of the scene completely by. Hrm. It's to be thought about (on my part)

10 October 2004, 05:03 PM
wow, lots of stuff happening in latest, maybe you should reduce amount of stuff appearing a bit, it's a bit cluttered. Nicely sketched though.

10 October 2004, 05:11 PM
uhm , bishoppess, yea , I think it's the hand , sorta like halts the movements of the ships,
or reverses it even. Dunno for sure cause it didn't affect me that way :)

fish ship ? yea ugly fish, heh , anyways , comin up extra stuff in the fish ship area , so it
might look different then

ranath i know , i made it like a movie poster , but cluttered

10 October 2004, 07:22 PM
I think your first sketch was the most successful. Maybe you should try building from that. Overall though, your concept work is great.

10 October 2004, 07:52 PM

I too remember your thread from machine flesh and thinking to myself how absurdly good the concept sketches were... watching your thread develop was 75% of the fun. you seem to have kept to form with this project.

[I gotta say my vote is on the first sketch too... i really liked the sketch! :P]

10 October 2004, 08:03 PM
Looking good, though perhaps there are too much stuff in that consept. It might work if you make one of them bigger, or brighter.

10 October 2004, 08:54 PM
Im still a fan of the weepeth the king :) That last concept is true like a movie poster, but a bit too messy for my taste.

10 October 2004, 07:00 AM
This one's like a 70s film poster!!

Love the idea... i think maybe you could play with scale of the various elements. For instance, i think the woman's head could be even more promininet in the composition. I like the ship with teeeth and the dude who looks like the creature frfom the blakc lagoon!!

When you gonna decide which way you're heading? (no rush... still 83 days to go... just curious)

10 October 2004, 07:38 AM
duddlebug ,
I think I'm gonna go with this latest one . Never really done a smooth , sharp , detailed
picture of this size before and I want to give it a shot .
And all the stuff in the sketch are like basic elements , so as you said they can be
altered in size and brought up and put back as wanted later on.

black lagoon creature...heh at one point most of the stuff in the sketch was greenish
cause i just got stuck with the color, but i might make him something like that :)

I'm gonna try to make the ship with teeth look fast and smooth and, while at the same
time looking like it was custom built from scrap metal and spare parts..ummh.. sumthin
like that...sorta like millenium falcon u know

also should add more unusual design in the pic , it is a Grand Space Opera afterall :)

10 October 2004, 08:06 AM
Man you're full of ideas lol. Keep it up, but don't forget to choose one ;)

10 October 2004, 09:12 AM
this is absolutely jaw-dropping! really awesome work!

10 October 2004, 03:01 PM
:D Your concept sketches are so much fun!

10 October 2004, 03:56 PM
hehehe... i remember what happened at machineflesh challenge

Yep I do too, t`was a most entertaining thread with a fantastic piece at the end of it. :applause:

10 October 2004, 04:41 PM
You are unbeliavable so many nice and good ideas keep it up!

Space Admiral Happy Memes built himself a dog.
He loved the dog dearly and it followed
the admiral everywhere he went in the
galaxy to wage war .
Admiral Memes was a freelencer who
started wars and then offered to finish
them for a phenomenal fee . He was a
pheomenal admiral and tended to win his
wars so the dog saw a lot of battle.
Until it disappeared. Totally unaware of
how accustomed he had become to the
presence of the dog beside him on the
battlefield , the admiral Happy Memes
was shattered by his loss. His advisors
knew if Doggy wasn\'t found soon the
admiral , in his current sorrow-filled,
pitiful state , might just lose his
first battle ever. And that battle was
just a few days away ...

10 October 2004, 10:49 PM
I love you last concept! I am not sure how you plan on using this, but great job! :)

10 October 2004, 10:58 PM
Man that dog is Awesome. Ask for Happy. You kill me:)Go on. I am very curious))) where
you are going with crazy thinking that you have. I vill check this tread daily. Good luck. :thumbsup:

10 October 2004, 12:05 AM
Bwahahah...great! That is Concept ! :scream: (not only Doggy).

10 October 2004, 01:35 AM
Oh Man! You really need to center your idea around that dog concept. That's hilarious.

10 October 2004, 01:47 AM
Holy Crap!!

someone with an imagination! Fantastic artwork, squibbit!

not often you come across someone with such off the wall ideas, that work, and look really good when it's put down on paper.

Originality at it's finest

10 October 2004, 08:54 AM
Superb... Keep the stories coming...

(that last one was almost a machineflesh!!)

10 October 2004, 02:53 PM
OORJ so much work allready??
Looking goood...will follow this thread to the end:)

10 October 2004, 03:08 PM
superb! the concept with the beach really got me going. it reminded me very much of this ( scene from the series last exile(except the beach part =])

10 October 2004, 04:51 PM (

Borl would carry little Woonyacks home,
thier NEW home. Old home , Galaxy 371 ,
been deteriorating , reducing in size ,
until in the end it shrinked even faster
than Woonyacks themselves! But Woonyacks
found their saviour in Borl , traveling
salesman of surfboards . Not only knew
Borl of an uninhabited minigalaxy for
the Woonyacks to live in , he also had
the perfect temporary special environment
for the little people to travel in : his
own bloodstream. (He also promised to
make them teeny weeny surfboards on the
long journey to the new home) .

10 October 2004, 05:37 PM
love the thread! incredibly humorous approaches. love the 2nd to last one, the latest is very much the reminder of a leaking banana :)

10 October 2004, 06:41 PM
Ive seen hundreds of your weird sketches, but this was so funny i had to say it.:D

So you still have like 2 months of time to draw concept stuff and after that 2 weeks of panic for the real painting as usual :thumbsup:

10 October 2004, 06:59 PM
yea i just figured it must be i make these stuff so i keep
my self happy when i view like ViDA's Blackarts' n others work
and don't fall into eternal despair, hehe

10 October 2004, 07:04 PM
I think this image is gorgeous, and even though it perhaps doesnt quite seem to fit in with the "Space Opera" theme, I love this piece!

10 October 2004, 07:38 PM
think i should work it into a "get well soon" card ?

10 October 2004, 07:52 PM
That dogy is a killer concept! Unfortunately i think its not enough for a grand space opera contest, but dont u dare not using that poster somewhere in ur final picture! :D That would be a great detail if u ask me :)

I have to ask, how long on average does it take you to bang one of these out?
And what programs do you prefer?
And how much work do you do not on the computer before hand?

You are incredibly impressive! ! ! ! ! :bounce:

Dog! That is the most whacked out dog I've seen in my life. I love it.

I'm not so sure about the banana guy though. hmmmm.

10 October 2004, 09:03 PM
* weird * but very interesting concept :thumbsup:

10 October 2004, 09:42 PM
Love your ideas, very different approch than most contestants on this board.

keep them coming! :thumbsup:

10 October 2004, 10:04 PM
Admirals dog is wild and fun Panu.......I like the look and fun factor is high.Plus your little short-legged alien/creature is alot of un,and has a cool look.I think the little creature should have the admirals dog on a leash.......................That would be two for one...............Keep the fun coming..............:arteest:

10 October 2004, 10:57 PM
good stuff. I cant wait to see how you flesh out that color comp.

10 October 2004, 06:43 AM
Thanks for the appreciation , everybody :)

NinjaASSN ::--> thanks for the poster idea! definitely gonna use it !

Shadow Seraph --> the fun stuff is usually drawn out like bunny from
the hat.It's fast and fun to do . Really trying to
improve my art cause then again the serious stuff
with correct lighting , smooth lines , right colors
and composition is like real slow and tedious work,
although it's fun too , otherwise I wouldn't do it.
But with the serious stuff I rarely get even near
where I wanted to .
I use an HB pencil and photocopy paper for some
sketching. Some stuff I do straight with Photoshop.
I don't really use anything else.
Oh yeah and at home I must draw with mouse
cause I only got Wacom at work.

10 October 2004, 11:57 AM
hahahaha... that last one is superb!!! IS he fatally wounded... or do you think he'll feel better after a nice cup of tea?

keep 'em coming squibbit!!!

10 October 2004, 04:45 PM
One thing for sure, It's impossible to get bored with such original concepts ! :D

Good luck !

here now is 2 - seated ultra-manoeuvrable - superlight - mega something and very durable space vessel
with a desire to be in the final composition ... we'll see , sorta
annoyed with it already

10 October 2004, 09:04 PM

the one day my eyes can really grasp this perspective thingy
and my hands execute it on the medium I will be mightily pleased

On to home and to bed , or to the bar then to bed ...

I wonder if the busses still move at this hour...


10 October 2004, 09:07 PM
Hey Squibbit, looks like you're doing great here! I especially like your 'weepeth the king' pic - you've got a strong illustration talent in you, and your imagination is as we all know, well, :applause:

EDIT: noticed you just posted something new while I was replying... great concept!

10 October 2004, 10:22 PM
Please Squibbit..could you lend me a neurone..please..(hope my english not too bad)...
Nice vessel etc..really (a doggy-vessel maybe, could be interesting...humpf..:D )

10 October 2004, 10:27 PM
cool the prawn shaped ship :thumbsup:

10 October 2004, 02:36 AM

10 October 2004, 05:14 PM
that thing that sprouts legs is very good idea, though something's up with it's perspective. Not that it mattered though..

I'm almost too eager to see your finished work..

10 October 2004, 06:45 PM
Once again, great concepts. I really like your last concept for the ship. Totally diggin where you're approaches.

nice sketchees Squibbit, I like your fresh takes on the subject matter. I think a humourous or lighthearted peice can still capture the space opera theme, as you've proven.

11 November 2004, 11:48 PM
Medic! There's something wrong with him, please help him! :D hehe, lots of funny stuff here since I last took a look. Keep 'em coming!

I love youre early cartoon style sketches. I haven't seen much of that here yet. but then if you feel like going in a totally different's all good.

i only post this cause i sorta promised

A plot waaay too long to describe here
by the Wizard Hippylol brought end to
the Wazzat Confederation's mighty space
fleet. The plot took years to execute
but in the end it brought the Wazzat
ships in vicinity of planet Idonlikepepsi ,
where Hippylol had established a great
magnet system that pulled the Wazzatian
vessels from the space and crashing down
on the planet's surface. This image was
taken by a maintenance droid from the
safety zone that's under the magnet
towers , where the magnets have no effect.

"It was one magical moment" -was heard
said by the Wizard Hippylol of the event.

I really wouldn't worry about The Ultimate Concept, since you got so much already developed that in the end you will be able to build up from all your -Fantastic, I have to add- imagery!! And the humorous approachs are so relaxing and inspiring at the same time. Please keep then coming!


11 November 2004, 05:50 PM
Marvel comics is called the House of Ideas........this has to be the Thread of Ideas!

Not many people are as creative and that can run with a concept in so many ways................much respect.

One of my favourites to view.

I wish you luck

Excellent work


11 November 2004, 06:24 PM
Hi Squibbit,

just dropped by to thank you once again for your amazing work. :bounce:Very inspirational. I like the “Six Fingers” Space Thingy, and your last sketch which has this epic feeling this whole challenge is about.
But I obstinately have to vote for the ???????????? concept.:D


11 November 2004, 07:00 PM (

yes , ok , now this is gonna change much cause
it looks way too starwarsy , but I think I wanna do this...
The characters are gonna be many and varied , cause it's space opera and
it's galactic peacetalks and you just
can't avoid that.
Two great nations are negotiating peace.
In the background their space fleet
face eachother off.
It's not yet really funny at all and
that worries me more than a little ... :(

11 November 2004, 08:22 PM
Hey I really like this one. For sure you have to change some things to get rid of the star wars touch but it definitely has the grand space opera touch.:thumbsup:

May be put some steamboat-spaceships in the back (Ok, sorry I’ll stop now, I promise):blush:


11 November 2004, 08:37 PM
no no , not a bad idea at all that one , I'll keep that .

There's going to be one steamboat in the pic , promise !

nice work u made with the restaurant in your Space Opera entry , Russel,
as it happens , this event of mine is happening in a space station restaurant :)

I'll also put a hotel and a travel agency on the left side , lots of designing
to do with all the people , buildings , spaceships and all ... luckily it's a
long competition :)

11 November 2004, 08:39 PM
I like the idea of the galactic peace talks with the fleet in the back....I think you can make it different from star wars, it's all in how you design the environment and the ships. keep going!

11 November 2004, 10:00 PM
It's not yet really funny at all and
that worries me more than a little ... :(

Well, you could add subtle humor; have two flags, one representing each side. One flag is a naked alien (or the butt of an alien) and the other flag is one of just underwear! Two civilizations that were destined to be together :scream:

Well, its jsut an idea :hmm:

Tommy Lee
11 November 2004, 10:09 PM
Yeah, the last one has this grand scale feeling to it.
About the humor.... I know what u mean, the same thing happens to me right now. I am going very serious and not so sick'n twisted as usual. It's a hart task to get it going on this subject.
Anyway... we'll try our best, right?:D



11 November 2004, 12:18 AM

The concept named with many ? reminds me for the Adventures of Baron Münchhausen.
I think it would be a very unique idea to mix the fairytale stories of great "fabled" travelers with myths and technology of a space era. I like this concept and I like this picture.
Best wishes

11 November 2004, 12:21 AM
Hey Squibbit, I'm liking that last one. Good epic scale... planet, huge starships and some human drama going on, it's a classic mix. I'd like it more if the ships in the bg were oriented a little differently. they're a bit regular at the moment.

Interesting comment about the humour issue... by their very nature, space operas need to take their themes so seriously that they are in danger of coming full circle and becoming parodies of themselves. That may just be my way of looking at it!

11 November 2004, 05:42 AM
yea Speaky, I know, the ships look regular, that bothered me too.
when I tried to change them it easily looked like the scales were tilted
for one team or another, though... got to work on it a bit more.

11 November 2004, 08:30 AM (

This one could work, if you think again the composition, and canvas size.
I don't have any criticues to these works, 'cause they are in so early stage.

11 November 2004, 10:05 AM
You know Panu........These look fine,in fact real good,the compo the whole thing,but...................................................Knowing your creativity and imagination you can do way better.......These are kind of run of the mill,regular,nothing too too exciting,good sure,but not what I would expect from you.........I think you have one incredible imaginative mind,one of the most creative and exciting minds you can come across........I just think you have to go with your natural self,your way out creative self...........For example if you ask me, I would love to see the "Admirals dog"..........The tree concept..........Or the traveling surfboard salesman "Borl" all mixed into your designs/art.........These are the kinds of creations/thoughts that I think make you special.......It can be any of the above,or all new creations done in this manner..........I think you should go with those quirky off the wall,wild and fun zany ideas of yours,just let yourself go,be free with what you feel like doing,and in the end you will still have your own rendition of a Space Opera.......Your ideas and style stand out and are "Special",you should continue in your own way,.........Just one guys thoughts here..........heres to seeing your space opera get that true Panu touch..........:beer: :arteest:

11 November 2004, 11:06 AM
You have forced my hand, I am now
5D in total and I WILL take over your
universe.cause now i wanna do both the peacetalks and Hippylol pics , grr :P

11 November 2004, 11:26 PM
The concept looks fantastic, but yes, it does look very much like a Death star scene. Still nice though, it has the grand feel to it.

11 November 2004, 05:20 AM
yes squibbit, you are the king! i still like the style of the early concpet, wheepa king and queen one.

the peace talk is definatley space opera but not hugely creative like most of your other concepts. do some mix n match style ish here.

11 November 2004, 09:55 AM
I don’t mean humor, but the style of ?????????????????. I agree with eupee. A mixture could have very especial tone. Surely it would have also contradictions, but would have an extremely unique sense too.

11 November 2004, 12:47 PM
yea , yea! Now I'm really busy! toodeetreedee beeblop plopdip !

the thing about the peacetalk pic is there wasn't any characters
yet in it ánd they're gonna be a pic part of the pic , many and varied.
I've worked the pic a bit more and I'm still not pleased with the overall look though.

dunno , maybe I'll rework the sketch , gotta do some 3d for change ,
I really would like to do the peacetalks pic , but I would also really hate to
disappoint u guys n gals , we'll see what's gonna happen..later :)

11 November 2004, 04:19 PM
now i see, i hasitated too much with posting my idea/s ... (two huge fleets etc :))

and about the humor in your picture: i don`t think it`s necessary, peace negotiations are a very serious matter and your picture should spread that message and feeling

Duke John
11 November 2004, 04:30 PM
The peacetalks concept looks very promising! But since peace isn't that exciting, perhaps you could show how peace was almost achieved until one of the leaders spilled his coffee over the other. So close but then total war began because a leader lost his dignity...

11 November 2004, 04:44 PM
now i see, i hasitated too much with posting my idea/s ... (two huge fleets etc :))

LOL! yea , don't see much of that around here!

Good point Duke ! Who said the negotiations were going well ? ;)

Excellent ideas and concepts man!
No the hardest part isn't it to choose one?
Personally I really liked the sniffling king and those teamships thing.
But that's just one between a lot of other great ideas!!!
I realy be following this one,really curious to see how and especialy which one you'll work out!!!

things will change for better... :(

OKMER - DUde !! u check out your thread ? i did , excellent stuff there, I mean
WWoW! like u gonna take over the world too ? man...

DeADLYY - hah , yes , plastics they have to go with! Hope u get your concepts

Just wanted to say I really enjoyed gonig through the thread and seeing all the sketches. Great stuff. I had gone through the 12 page before I knew it. Nice work.

11 November 2004, 09:54 AM
Lol, same here. This stuff is extremely awesome (and I too like that "sniffer" pic...though they're all fantastic).

11 November 2004, 11:43 AM
hi, I like your ideas - and adding a bit of humour is a good idea if you can square it with the epic... Of the concept sketches I like the peace talks idea.

Anyway I'm interested to see where this goes... :)

11 November 2004, 03:28 PM (

Our interstellar travels began many years ago . Never
before had we travelled outside our own solar system ...
blah blah ... it was not your usual starship we travelled with...
blah blah blooah..blah...yaawn..blah ..zzzz...blah blah.. we had these giant ants that flew with many times the
speed of light here and there through our galaxy and since
the ants didn't much care where they were going we built
a guidance system ,passenger pods and cargoholds on their
exoskeletons and used them as FTL spaceships.
We also had hightech emergency systems onboard .
This was beacause the ants didn't have long lifespans and
when they got older their antlers (which were crucial to
guiding the ants FTL flight safely) withered and dropped
away. Not only this , the ants also got faster when they got
older. So people hung on to the older ants because of their
mighty speed and then tried to drop away at the last moment
when the antlers of the old ant fell off and the creature
stumbled uncontrollably with ever increasing speed into
a nearby star or planet.

..blah blah..

11 November 2004, 10:45 PM
Your latest idea is, as usual, quite imaginative. I imagine a final based on this would have a very organic feel to it.
I gotta say though, of all the concepts, I still like the first a lot. I've never really seen that kind of idea utlized, and while it's humorous, the perspective still gives it a somewhat serious look.
I still want to know which one will turn into your final though :|.

11 November 2004, 11:00 PM
Lol ! One word : refreshing.:D
It is really difficult to get bored with your concepts. I was nearly asleep and here am I laughing in front of my computer. Thanks, now I can go back to work !

I like the fantasy type one with the king and the moon faces and all that jazz. Anyway as I said you have inspired me so I am off to hit the old drawing board . . . good luck!

11 November 2004, 01:26 AM
The humorous concept you have are so cool and funny. Thinking outside of the square is never easy which makes your concept so different and enjoyable to look at... great work!

This is it then !

Ms.Pretty Luvv travels all around the

Great line work! ...But this is final composition??

11 November 2004, 01:24 PM
hahahahahaha! Awesome little characters :D Im also wondering what will be the scene and composition on the final image, but with using those little bastards, its sure gonna be fun :D

I dig the concept of the story! And there is a little ninja also, am i right? hahaha

another edit... eh... wathc the anatomy of a girl. Her knee is too low and her hands too small in my opinion. Just a suggestion at a start, so u wont need to correct such "mistakes" at the end of a coloring process.

11 November 2004, 09:11 PM
made one quick sketch , it was ms.luvv in huge city all surrounded by monsters of
all kind , helping a a panicked line of cute lil creatures escape the monsters into her awaiting spaceship... i dunno ... she's gonna be pictured up close and the ship will be there , but I'm
not sure about the rest yet ... I would like to draw a huge mess of nasty monsters like

11 November 2004, 10:10 PM
My gawd your prolific! Do you ever come up for air? lol
Great progress!

11 November 2004, 10:33 PM
Its sure a nice starting point for a pic, but i think that something grand is missing. Probably coz of fullness of all those elements which dont let the picture to breath. U have a big planet from the right side, some sculpture in the left and a big moon/planet at the center of ut image... u completly closed the picture, put its limits and capture it in the square. Made ur canvas wider, make a widescreen movie format and put those planets away... I think that the action in the first plan and the detail in the background, where those little animals r jumping into the spaceships tells enough.

11 November 2004, 10:47 PM
you're right , ninja , hehe I already made the blue planet-thingy smaller twice cause
it was hogging space .

that's gonna be an evil monster town on te left and it could do with a bit more space,
what u think ?

and yes ,that pic looks hideously boxed , heh , that was what troubled me too

I also want to make the incoming monsters clearer and some of them closer and thus bigger

also , ms.Luvv gonna have some little helpers , like Santa's elves , hehe

thanks for the input , dude :thumbsup:

These are wicked! Cool to see someones actually having a bit of fun with their pics, good inspiration for someone like me (who can't draw) keep it up, i hope some of your humour is in your final piece.:thumbsup:

11 November 2004, 06:03 AM
I wanna see ms.luvv piloting her ship buried in all the happy creatures she has rescued. Sitting on the dashboard, etc. Oh yeah, with the massive grand space opera battle happening outside the stilleto bubble. Maybe she's about to take on gwubble the destroyer.

11 November 2004, 08:09 AM
Hey s.

love the idea and your origional concept sketch is pure genius, but your first concept sketch with colour is not what i expected. Don't know what i expected exactly but it just seems a bit static andn closed in . . . not as fun as i had hoped. . . but then it nis early days and i am sure you will leave me spellbound with your final image . .. Maybe make a p[ersonal moment between one of the little creatures and her, perhaps a better planet??? Rther than just barron.

Anyway keep up the great work. This comp is getting me down. i have all this concept work and having trouble uploading it! uhhhhh

11 November 2004, 12:34 PM
yea the pic with the planets was really cold as stone , almost. I was really
tired when I drew that , but decided to post it anyways and it was a good
thing , cause all the feedback really help in creating the pic I want for the
final image , thanks .

heh , later on in the evening (well,night) I got even more tired and thoughts
started to wander and I started thinking like what if people never got past
baby phase and nature just adapted to that and started producing all kinds
of automatons like diaper crawler , baby washer bubble box creature and the
little reindeer that runs to hungry babies and explodes into ready burgers of
all healthy sorts :)

so next up , ms.Luvv again , resquing innocent little cuddly things from foul monsters
and bad places , doing her part in making the world a happier place :)

11 November 2004, 02:08 PM
this whole thread is amazing. I love how many prolific versions of everything there are. I' ve enjoyed all your sketches.

Hello, Always also insane your last drawing still! still!

11 November 2004, 04:38 PM (

The Emperor is dead. Scourge of the galaxy , the most foul creature
ever to exist ,Emperor Darkspace has been destroyed in an epic
battle that destroyed the planet Weva and the races of Tsaci and
Hilleren. The Emperor will rise again - that's his plan anyways. He
has a clone hidden in a faraway palace , and the secret way of
reviving it that requires blood of cute little things corrupted by
monster blood has been activated. The Emperor has captured hundreds
of the little ones in case of emergency such as this.But once again
the number one hero of the known universe is there to ruin the
Emperor's plans. Miss Luvv has arrived and has set free the little
creatures so their blood cannot be given to the clone and she's
fighting the emperor's personal guards so that none of the little
ones get recaptured and the evil emperor is destroyed once and
for all.

But has the Emperor gotten enough blood already? Can his hideous plan
still succeed?? Is our beloved hero and her little helpers too late ???

EDIT: that painting/statue in the bg depicts the emperor and his eternal
imperial chain that curls around to constrict all space and its galaxies.
At the emperor's feet are flags of defeated and enslaved worlds.

11 November 2004, 09:48 AM
Pleeeease pleeeeeeease pleeease go with this one! Dont change a bit, not a story, not a composition, not a thing!!! Please! I mean it! :eek: :bounce: Thats sooo cool! Im speachless and Im rarely speachless...

11 November 2004, 09:51 AM
And yea... sell this one to one of the game industry company. So original story for a game I didnt noticed for a while now. All just save the world, accidents, bla bla bla... but this one is a masterpiece. A very good background, right amount of action and emotional parts... :thumbsup:

11 November 2004, 10:04 AM
I totally agree with NinjaASSN. Go for it! :bounce:
Just wondering where to put the steamboat-spaceship. :D

11 November 2004, 10:34 AM
yea this gonna be it :)

and there might just be a steamboat somewhere in the
pic yet ...

11 November 2004, 11:04 AM
and a dog poster ;) dont forget about it :D

11 November 2004, 11:09 AM
I won't :D

11 November 2004, 02:58 PM
Great sense of humour in almost all of your sketches... And I'm withNinjaASSN: go with the last one!!

11 November 2004, 03:07 PM
Looks very promising! good you've put those giant windows there, so it's definatly a SPACE opera.

11 November 2004, 04:31 AM
this is alot better. I love your imagination... can't wait to see more.

Tommy Lee
11 November 2004, 04:35 AM
Awesome... would love to se that last concept in you final piece.:bounce: :thumbsup:

11 November 2004, 07:42 AM
Ok - anyone who doesn't enjoy your sense of humour - hasn't got a sense of humour! Prolific and witty. I especially like post 45 - kinda like Leonardo DaVinci drawing while on laughing gas. Keep up the good work!

11 November 2004, 06:27 PM (

yea touched it with an ugly hand , heh.

11 November 2004, 06:36 PM
I agree with the rest,Go on with this one,!!It's great!!!Maybe a planet or some ships floating outside behind the window...maybe,I know!Maybe not:D


my grand SpaceBra:

11 November 2004, 01:57 AM
Wow, crazy path you have taken from the first concept sketches to this current painting. Nice job, I like the direction it is going in. I think the basic idea is there, and now all you need to do is work on the execution of the painting.

There are a couple of things that catch my eye in your latest -

- maybe you can zoom out a little bit, or make the canvas larger so that the elements on the edges are not cut off; for example, the statue on the left side is being hit, but it is almost off the page. Zooming out would also let you show a bit more of the environment. What I *can* see looks pretty cool - you should emphasize that grand scale in there.

- the figures are not completely following the perspective scheme you have set up, unless they are all different heights...

- lighting is a bit flat right now; there are no obvious light sources or areas of shadow. I think you have some opportunities to create a dramatic, theatrical lighting scheme.

11 November 2004, 08:24 AM
---yea OKMER (umm..'my SpaceBra?'..ok... :) ) as said before,
there is going to be a spaceship outside...looking like a steamship...
thinking it would act as a rescue vessel.

---thanks , francis001 , you're right , I was worried about the canvas not
being the right size... will try a wider version , although the last time
i did that i ended up enlarging the canvas idefinitely..
(it's probably somewhere enlarging now as i type)

and the figures are just hasty smudges , they're not that accurate at all;
I don't even know yet if I'm gonna draw them in different sizes or same size.

LIGHTING...arg....talking about a weakness... *wanders off to take another look
at Speaky's sketches* ' that's how it's done'...
Yea of course I'll go for dramatic and idea what I'll get , tho :blush:

11 November 2004, 03:07 PM
This time you launches out in an approach a little Gothic,cool :)

11 November 2004, 03:43 PM
Having finished reading through this entire thread, I must say that I adore you :P I get this mental image of a wild, tousled thing madly scribbling away at the computer. Your concepts are wonderful, unique and so funny - you've put a big goofy smile on my lips for the past twenty minutes or so.

I love all of it, but the concept you're going with is really gorgeous. I can't wait to see where you'll take it. It's wonderful seeing someone just going with the flow of imagination, and I love the little descriptions for every image as much as the images themselves. I'll definitely keep stalking this thread :D

11 November 2004, 05:13 PM
I love it! A lot of drama in Your image. Design of the location is great. You can really feel that it have its own history .

11 November 2004, 05:52 PM
I like that too !
Make it so, number one !:thumbsup:

11 November 2004, 06:30 PM
Hello Squibbit! Just don't know what to say... hehe! ...Ms.Luvv! heheh! :D I'm just giggling when I browse your post. There's so much going on that my little head is going to explode! Well, atleast I can say that the composition is very good in your latest concept and that you're insane! (no more mushrooms to you my friend!) ;) I'm so curious what you come up to with this... Keep up the excellent work! heheh :)

11 November 2004, 07:28 PM
lol,that;s getting great, i love the cpolour scheme so far and the angle rocks...i am glad to see you kept to the mres luvv concept:thumbsup:

11 November 2004, 12:02 AM
I get this mental image of a wild, tousled thing madly scribbling away at the computer

?? :P

thanks everybody for the responses , it's great u love Ms.Luvv and the ultimate concept ,
cause I do , too. Now I just have to finish it and finish it well. Planning to start seriously
work on it in the coming weekend. In the meanwhile I'll be relaxing and practicing my
modeling skills , trying to model the face of Wizard Hippylol for the Space Opera 3D side.

11 November 2004, 09:09 AM

Is that you??

Anyway, I agree that the canvas needs widening. Is ms.Luvv going to be a shadowy figure like that? She looks like a demonic kick ass women right now. Are we going to be able to see her face. I absolutly love your cute creatures . . . i am very partial to things like that and myself doodle them all the time. Can't wait how you use the lighting and how the ship is going to look out side. keep it coming! I wish i was so prolific... my stuff is going very slowly.

11 November 2004, 10:27 AM
yea dats me

canvas has been widened a bit...will show the updated pic on saturday.
Miss Luvv is gonna be lighter and you'll be able to see her face.
And only these skecthes come fast from the , the rest is so slow and
tedious u dont wanna know :)

11 November 2004, 12:31 PM
Idea is coming along nicely, camera angle is good. :thumbsup:

11 November 2004, 01:09 PM
That's great concept!.. Cool...

11 November 2004, 01:14 PM
That will work real well Panu.........My only suggestion would be to pan or steer move the view over towards the windows more,try and get them and what is beyond more in the shot........Wild things could be happening out there beyond the windows,perhaps you could add more there as Okmer suggested........Looking very good,a nice scene,pretty wild and busy.......Keep this going,It's got very nice potential,I also like the angles you chose..........:thumbsup:

11 November 2004, 06:47 PM
I get this mental image of a wild, tousled thing madly scribbling away at the computer your freakin wild man....hehehh:scream: nice concept.........especially the angle, love it!:thumbsup:

11 November 2004, 06:44 PM (

this is going - like my 3D entry -
incredibly slow at the moment...

11 November 2004, 07:03 PM
Very nice! She is also flying around in her stelleto ship! It is interesting, great progress!

11 November 2004, 07:46 PM
Hehehhehehe! Oh, f*ck! Seriously, those red puppies are killing me! :D
It looks great at this stage I think. It's too reddish but on the other hand it kinda suits the pic... :D

11 November 2004, 12:33 PM
yea I'm still lost with the lighting stuff...anyways I'm really just throwin paint here

and there and see what becomes ... :)
