Hallais Jassar!
I'm so glad to see you in this one too!
Awainting to see some more of your creative style!
Let those brushes roll!

03 March 2008, 05:49 PM
Hey varma! thanks for the support man :) I will start posting my ideas and sketches as soon as I finish my DWIII entry.
Cheers until then!

03 March 2008, 05:03 PM (

Well, I've just started to think of something at last :)
My first idea is: Humans demolished earth so they start looking for other planets to start a new life there... but one of these planets is already taken lol...
I picture the moment when humans meet the other dudes.

This is just a very very rough sketch and I might even redo the whole thing, but it's a start!

03 March 2008, 06:34 PM (

Well, just a rough ( very rough ) color test, for choosing a nice color theme.

03 March 2008, 08:04 PM
wooooooow !

nice idea .. and nice creature ^_^ ..

Good luck Jassar..

03 March 2008, 08:17 PM
Thanks Explore :)

Here's idea #2:
Have you ever imagined a car crash ( cough! I mean ship crash ) between an alien family and a human one?
I want to capture the moment after the crash when the alien dude is grabing the poor human; ready to kick the shit out of him :D
A sketch is coming soon after I figure out what to add in the scene.

Please tell me which idea sounds cooler, the first or second one?????

04 April 2008, 07:53 PM
man, you started already .... that's will give me some energy to involve in .... ^_^

the second idea sounds greet ... but I will wait to see the sketch ....

good luck Jassar, am in the challenge ... so you will really need it :D

04 April 2008, 08:30 AM
good luck dude

I`am totally with this idea much better .......keep going mate :thumbsup:

04 April 2008, 03:25 PM (

Just a quick sketch to hold my thoughts. There will be tons of detail like many aliens in the background watching in fear, and a police officer ( a robot ) floating next to them with his head missing ( the angry alien punched it away! )... and much more I hope :)

04 April 2008, 03:29 PM (

The human ( victim ) will be a skinny geek with a funny looking suite :) . I'm thinking of a classical mechanical feel which will be consistant throughout the whole image.

04 April 2008, 07:16 PM (

Well! here's the first look for my characters ( the angry alien and the nerdy human :) )many details will be added later. I still have to design the two crashed ships and all the other characters in the background...

04 April 2008, 01:24 PM
the sketch looks greet and the characters so ... waiting for the crashed ships :)

04 April 2008, 01:41 PM
Thanks man :) , many many changes will happen to the main characters when I start painting. More updates coming soon.

04 April 2008, 09:23 PM (

Well, I just made a very simple color blocking process, colors will be changed of course and tons of detail will be thrown there... it's a start at least :)

And yes I know the scene is still empty!

04 April 2008, 06:00 AM
nice start keep going

04 April 2008, 03:25 PM (

Just an update: I started to work on the background. Next step will be painting the planet!

04 April 2008, 06:17 PM (

Started to work on the planet :)

04 April 2008, 08:22 PM (

Still workin on the background scene.

04 April 2008, 01:04 PM (

Well, not much of an update, I'm still working on the midground planet.. I'm thinking of adding some small huts and buildings there, but not much since most of the planet will be covered anyways.

04 April 2008, 06:28 PM
you are doing well as I see Jassar, keep it up man :)

just one comment -I don't know if am right or not- but the hole on the surface of the main and near planet, itlooks a bit wrong on it's prespective ... I don't know why, but maybe the prespective of the road gave me that feeling ...

anyway my friend it looks greet and maybe am still wrong ... so don't bother yourself :D

04 April 2008, 02:20 AM
that is really wonderful man :)

i'm really Blown away :)

are you trying to make a cartoon style ? are u fine now with the result ?!

i like your work :) keep it up Dude :)

04 April 2008, 01:47 PM
Many thanks guys :) yes i'm aiming for a cartoon style.
More updates will come soon..

04 April 2008, 04:19 PM (

Here's a glimpse of the ship under construction :)

04 April 2008, 12:42 PM
very nice jassar

04 April 2008, 06:50 PM
Thanks Alsweedy :) , I hope I can finish this thing on time x_x

04 April 2008, 07:01 PM
Hey Jassar my friend, hahahahah really nice approach to the concept, I like a lot your sketches, cool funny ideas, great!! :D The concept is developing really nice!! The background looks amazing. Again great work!! Cheers my friend!! :beer:

04 April 2008, 04:11 PM
in shallah :)

04 April 2008, 06:49 PM (

Here's the progress so far.

04 April 2008, 09:53 PM
hi jassar ..
really nice concept...
keep it up ...:D

04 April 2008, 04:18 AM
LOL! Intergalactic road bully! I love the idea! I think you should show more of the subjects, especially the vehicles. It would be nice to have a whole view of the accident scene behind them. So we can see the alien and human designs of the ship, and what a wreck they both have become. Try to focus more on the characters too. Closer to the viewer will be great. All the best and have fun, Al-Haitham!

04 April 2008, 06:59 AM
falcon3d, many thanks man :)

Hey, it's great to see you here Jerome :) , I'm glad that you've finished your amazing entry.
At first I wanted to zoom in and focus on the bully and the accident, then I thought of using the wide space to add some funny details, like a robot police officer on his flying skooter with his hand raised to stop the bully ( and his head is banged off! ), some aliens in the background/foreground watching the action in fear... and so on, I hope it works fine.


04 April 2008, 03:05 PM (

ok, I've cropped the image to add more focus on the main characters. Better like this?

04 April 2008, 06:46 PM
hey buddy! finally found you! :) this is gonna be really interesting :bounce: waiting to see what's next! :p good luck dude! :thumbsup:

04 April 2008, 07:48 PM (

Thanks for the support neville :)

04 April 2008, 08:06 PM
Hey Jassar, that alien is looking really great, like a lote the colour palette for him, really nice. Great savage expression :D cool!! Perhaps his left leg need to be more to front to put weight and balance on the alien ( he is lifting a human :D), only a comment :) Again , great work and looking forward for more updates! Cheers my friend :beer:

04 April 2008, 10:17 PM
Hey Jassar!
Wow, you are half way through, and It looks very good! That alien looks really angry! haha!
Can't wait to see more of this concept!
Good luck, dude!

04 April 2008, 01:24 PM
Ferx, Varma, many thanks my friends :) , I just hope I could finish this piece before the second-exams season starts here at my university!

04 April 2008, 07:58 PM (

Darn I'm running out of time! and my exams are very near...
Here's the alien so far.


04 April 2008, 06:50 PM (

Just to show how far the scene is going so far ;)

04 April 2008, 09:32 PM
Hey Jassr, looks really great my friend, the colors used for image are really nice an put a nice cartoon touch on it, really cool . Think you need to put more rim lights and back lights over the alien (and less contrast on the ship tail) to separarate a bit from the space ship tail, only a comment :) Again, great work my friend! Cheers mate!! :beer:

04 April 2008, 06:54 PM (

Thanks Ferx for the good point, I'll keep it in mind.

As for now here are the little aliens cheering for their dad! ( still wip ).

04 April 2008, 08:54 PM (

The scene so far..

04 April 2008, 09:35 AM
LOL... nice idea.. In truth i laughed more than you could imagine :)

but i agree with jeromoo comments.

good luck and i will keep following your thread :)


04 April 2008, 03:59 PM
Details very impressive :applause:

04 April 2008, 04:22 PM
this is hilarious! Very nice progression... I'd only comment that the main subject seems to be focused on a too aside region of your canvas, leaving the rest a bit empty storytelling wise... Just a thought. Good stuff! ;)

04 April 2008, 05:06 PM
Phoenix, Alsweedy thanks for the support guys! I'm glad you liked it :)

Raul, you are right man, there are still some missing elements from the right side of the whole scene. I will try to fix things asap :wip: , thanks for the note.


04 April 2008, 08:13 PM
Hey Jassar, hahahahah I really like the addition of the little aliens, a really cool touch !! And nice desaturation on the tail of the ship ( is a space schoolar bus ship?? :D), clever!! :D the arm of the big alien popup really well with that change!! Great work my friend !! Cheers :beer:

04 April 2008, 08:45 PM
Thanks a million ferx ^_^ , I'm very grateful for your ( and the other's ) comments.

04 April 2008, 07:19 PM (

Well, not a big update, I've started to paint the human.

05 May 2008, 08:16 AM (

Workin on the dude...

05 May 2008, 12:34 PM
hehe Jassar! that's very cool! Someone is gonna get a lot of trouble, and he still looks
comic and cheerful!
Keep it up this way!

05 May 2008, 08:53 PM (

Ok, the scene is popping up slowly :) , I'm still not sure about the way those blue lights look.

Mathias, thanks :)

05 May 2008, 10:41 PM
Hey Jassar, cooool!! really loking good my friend :thumbsup: , like a lot the walkway, perhaps you need to increase a bit the bright for the lights. The expression of the human and his hand raised is totally funny and great hahahahahaa love that touch! :D. I think that you need to take out the ring of the planet cut a bit the nice space of your background. Perhaps a small moon for that planet instead of the rings, and make more brigther or with more rim light the background ships, for now they look on the same plane of the alien and human, only a comment :). Really cool work Jassar, love the humor and expression on your image, great!! :D Cheers!! :beer:

05 May 2008, 05:14 PM (

Great to see you again Ferx, thanks :)

Here's the scene after some color changing. I need to make the characters pop out some more.

05 May 2008, 08:15 PM (

Hey there guys :)
I'm almost done, just need some finishing touches and more detail where I can.
Please tell me if you have any notes or ideas.


05 May 2008, 05:21 PM (

On one of the frozen moons of the frozen planet Thalga there was a happy little alien family flying it's ship all safe and cold until, out of nowhere, something crashed with them! those dumb humans were never supposed to come to these parts.
You can imagine what came next...

05 May 2008, 06:42 AM
congrats mate ;)

05 May 2008, 12:56 PM
Thanks Antony :) , I'm doing some small adjustments and today I will upload the final tiff.
Cheers to all!

05 May 2008, 10:01 PM
I wouldn't want to miss the oportunity to congratulate you upon your final image, Jassar!
Very humorous idea indeed :)

The best of luck to you!


05 May 2008, 12:45 PM
Hey Dimitrij, thanks man! good luck to you too.

05 May 2008, 03:25 AM
Hey Jassar, great image my friend!! I simple love the alien kids on the space family wagon, ultra cool!! :D Great atmosphere on the image and great achived expressions for the alien dad and the human driver :D The addition of the robot is a great touch for the concept, like the pose for it. It seems that this thinking whether or not the alien hit the man :D, great!! Congratulations for this cool artwork my friend!! And time for big barrel of cold beer :D and a lot of tequila !! Cheers !! :beer:
