03 March 2008, 08:03 PM
That guy with three on is in trouble. But seriously, always resist the temptation to wear cactus hats, especially on other planets.

Nice work, keep it up :thumbsup:

03 March 2008, 08:03 PM
Haha this is great. I love how they just use them as hats ... fatal decision :D

03 March 2008, 10:13 PM
My God! I didn't know cactuses ate brains! I'll have to throw mine away...

03 March 2008, 03:00 AM
:D thats a nice idea mate

03 March 2008, 03:08 AM
Great idea. LOL. Hats... who would have thought of that? Excellent sketch.

03 March 2008, 12:45 PM
Haha, as I expected. This is going to be so much fun to follow your thread.:applause:

Really nice start.


03 March 2008, 02:27 PM

03 March 2008, 09:50 PM

03 March 2008, 12:06 AM

Nice work


03 March 2008, 01:43 AM
hum.. only i dunno if the pic made it clear enought the one
on the left is one of the popes and has like as majik n stuff
as they do


03 March 2008, 02:08 AM
No its quite clear..I gathered your description as the skeleton was being summoned on the right hand side of the screen , so one naturaly assumed that the figure on the right dealt in magics (summoning)

03 March 2008, 06:34 AM

Ok keeping another eye here :\

On your last concept, you think the Bishop made it?
'Cause it's Easter or something you know..

03 March 2008, 09:38 AM
Hahaha both ur concepts are funny as hell. but id have to say i like the Hat concept more.
because i both laugh at it and feel a little squeemish at the same time.

03 March 2008, 10:45 AM
hahaha, anther thread that will make me laugh everytime I'll stop by :D Im expecting at least 20 sketches and cool ideas from u Squib! keep up the great work, I'll stop by often here.

03 March 2008, 11:36 AM
Both of those are sweet ideas :buttrock:
I still prefer the killer cactus hats, though. That's just wicked.

Good luck for the challenge.

03 March 2008, 01:12 PM
hahahaha, damn dude, cool stuff :D

03 March 2008, 03:57 PM
Good luck too friend! Cool ideas :thumbsup:

03 March 2008, 10:55 AM
First concept was formidably funny.

03 March 2008, 11:47 PM
haha, really funny concepts here. i like the cactus one ... good luck! and keep the fun up;)

03 March 2008, 06:11 AM

Man eating cactus.. scary stuff :scream:
I cant keep wondering, do aliens play the guitar?

03 March 2008, 08:48 AM
Haha! Great sketches already - good luck Squibbit!

03 March 2008, 10:39 AM
hehe nice one squib!
How I loved battle chess....thnx for bringing back my childhood memories! :)

03 March 2008, 07:11 PM (


bah i gots troubles ,makin these pics read like i want em to.

in these one these aliens come to earth to see what kinda stuff's
goin on in here and mistake the baseball as one of their own peoples.


03 March 2008, 08:59 PM
That's cool, it's a finished picture all by itself :thumbsup:

03 March 2008, 11:12 PM
I'll never play baseball again. It's abuse!

03 March 2008, 11:48 PM
holly~hahah,another crazy piece:D

03 March 2008, 01:01 AM
That one certainly made me smile :) . If you turn it into a finished piece, you might want to rethink the background. The gag is great, but the environment gives it too moody a tone. Plus, it looks like the baseball player is playing ball out in the woods.

Great gag, though. You could totally go with that.

03 March 2008, 06:18 AM
hey there again dude...
some cool concepts already..

ill drop in as we progress...


03 March 2008, 10:26 AM
Great work! Best concepts I've seen so far, especially those cactus hats :twisted:

03 March 2008, 03:34 PM
Last one looks cool. :thumbsup:

I want to see more of that fun stuff. :scream:


03 March 2008, 03:59 PM


03 March 2008, 05:29 PM
i want to see some panda mosquito monkies in the next concept! :)

03 March 2008, 09:25 PM
Very nice idea!! =))
I can't wait to see more!
Good luck!!

03 March 2008, 11:31 PM
Hey man ! How are you doing ? :)

03 March 2008, 11:53 PM
Some cool ideas Squibbit. The baseball one made me laugh, and the mortal combat one was a cool idea also. Good luck, and keep the ideas comin'.

04 April 2008, 07:51 PM (

i'm gonna be way busy with other stuff
so i'll just cut the concepts and go
for final image.

so this is the concept for it and it
depicts the arrest of a bank robber.

i didnt put much thinking into the pic,
i only came up with the bank robber
thing when the concept pic was already
half done :P


04 April 2008, 08:26 PM
This image should be interesting. I like the idea as well. Nice take on uplift topic.

04 April 2008, 02:03 PM
This idea looks like a lot of fun and I like the perspective of it too. Good luck!

04 April 2008, 05:38 AM
I like the cactus concept much more the the chic. somehow i find a futuristic girl floating in space something i've seen before but those guys wearing cactus hats! damn thats weird and cool!

04 April 2008, 05:52 AM
Yeh I heard some people make a lot of money here robbing the bank.
They don't always get caught though, and are probably living in
a tropical island somewhere..

But with a cop like that I'd turn myself in so :P

04 April 2008, 09:03 AM
The alien looks cool. :D

04 April 2008, 09:16 AM
HAH! the baseball scene made me laugh as a fool!!:scream:
very very very funny!!
anyway... i like your last entry and the hat scene too.Keep it up,looks like u are about to make a great challenge.

04 April 2008, 12:02 PM
go go squib!
Right now the interaction between the police girl and the alien is not obvious enough.
It's hard to tell if she is falling or aiming at the Alien with her gun.
I think it might be neat if you build an arc with her body like a half moon facing upwards
if you know what I mean. That would make the pose more dynamic, and you could let
her hold the gun with two hands maybe.

just a thought...

04 April 2008, 06:15 PM
I like all Concepts, most the one with the Priest etc. and the Basebaliens, less the one with the Cacteen (cause of Gore, but that's a matter of taste) :)

I've got to agree. The concept is quite nice, but the message wasn't clear to me, I had to look twice to see that the alien is the bad guy and the chick isn't falling. Or is she? :shrug:It's definitely hard to tell if shes aiming at the alien or if the gun is by chance pointing in its direction. But then again that's just my opinion.:D
