I love it! The hair is awesome, they are like dominatrix space librarians, in a good way!

01 January 2010, 03:11 AM
Nice! Sexy Astronaut ladies..Got that too on my image....Space and sexy ladies are such a good mix...
I like the gun design. I think the b-52 hair is the best and I like the glasses too.

@ csmallfield + JRGauthier + killermachine : Thank you guys, may the force be with you !

01 January 2010, 11:46 PM (

Hi there ! This is my first composition study. I think that i'll try an other theme soon to test more ideas.
C&C are welcome.

01 January 2010, 12:42 AM
nice work, i like where your heading with it. the composition is working i reckon. its got classic b movie appeal :-)

01 January 2010, 01:04 AM (

Hi there ! As I said before, this is an other idea of theme I had in mind when I started thinking about this challenge, I don't know if I'll keep it or not... The sketch is an inspiration of Maila Nurmi.

C&C are welcome

Space man meet Vampira.
comments and crits are welcome

01 January 2010, 09:04 AM
LOL your doing vampira. I'm doing Tor. Now we just need someone to do Ed Wood and we have a team effort. :beer:

01 January 2010, 09:16 AM
man that great sketches I like your concept .. good luck and keep it up :thumbsup:

01 January 2010, 09:21 AM
Good luck man, i liked the Vampira

01 January 2010, 09:24 AM
Great! Best of both worlds, horror and Sci-Fi is quite a combo. Best of luck with that!

01 January 2010, 07:00 PM
I really can't wait to see your final!

01 January 2010, 02:48 AM
Hmm, I rather preferred your original direction (giant monster on alien planet). I'm not sure spacemen and vampires mix well...

01 January 2010, 02:57 AM
I like those character designs a lot. I'll definitely be watching your progress.

01 January 2010, 03:27 AM
Great character designs, I like the small sketch of the laser gun you did I believe in your second set of sketches (5 studies of the female character), that laser gun even though it's just a small sketch has a real funky look to it.

01 January 2010, 05:01 AM
Really cool concepts. It'd be cool if you could find a way to do them all in one. It'd be just like a B-Movie to have giant alien monsters, vampiras, and sexy ray gun wielding women all in one movie, the composition might be a little jarring though... lol
Good luck, I'll be following.

01 January 2010, 11:32 AM (

Hi there ! This is a sketch for new idea I had last night :) I am thinking about a lot of different characters to make a group of space explorers. I thought it would be funny to have the scientific, the courageous space man, the robot and the sexy daughter (miss brooks)...
Crits and comments are welcome !

01 January 2010, 11:47 AM
@ Emptyshell : thanks for your support mate !

@ Rols574 : Yeah it would be great ! Maybe i'll find a way to have Ed Wood somewhere :beer:

@ anostudio : Thanks buddy ! Good luck to yoo !

@ KIDI : Thaks for your support !

@ artvandeley : Sci-Fi and horror my preferred ones :D Thanks dood !

@ JP-Lamothe : Stay tuned for the final buddy i :buttrock:

@ Gilfindel : I am not sure that it will be a good mix too :D may be in a bad bad B-movie !
@ SantoAnderson : Thank you for your interest stay tuned :beer:

@ Olie : I like ray guns so much, I think it's the best invention in Sci-Fi and I'll put a lot of them as much as I can :D

@ Consideringthepickle : Yep, I agree with you ! I am trying to have them all in my last comp but I still don't see how to add Vampira :D Thanks for your support .

Thank you guys for your encouragements ! Cheers :beer:

01 January 2010, 02:36 PM (

Hi ! Still doodling and searching... Maybe I'll add a cave girl to my band .

Comments and crits are welcome

01 January 2010, 03:58 PM
This is good..The astronaut with the babe in his arms. You can feel the epicness!
It feels like a b-movie poster.

01 January 2010, 07:49 PM (

Hi there ! I started working on backgrounds to find the prehistoric atmosphere I want on my image. It's the beginning with nothing blocked so crits and comments are welcome.

01 January 2010, 08:04 PM
really great ideas here.
maybe you could a few planets in the horizon. also a moon crater of some sort, blowing up a bit of smoke, could be cool.
looking forward to see your future progress.


01 January 2010, 08:46 PM
This is really starting to make sense. I think you are on the right track with that BG.

01 January 2010, 09:03 PM
Really nice sketchwork, really like all the ideas you have come up with. The most B-movie one is the one with the big prehistoric creature!

01 January 2010, 10:06 PM (

Hi there, I started detailing the background a little before getting back to the other characters.

@ rasmusW : Thanks for your support and these good ideas ;)
@ JRGauthier : Thank you for your encouragement mate !
@ Paperboy : Thanks for your support, yep I agree with you, the most B-Movie one is the one with the huge moster... I am getting back to this idea. Thanks again :)

01 January 2010, 12:22 PM
Ooo I like the tall version on the right with the rock really high up on either side like a cavern. I'm envisioning a monster chasing them but its so big that its rather far off in the distance with atmospheric haze -maybe with a mist of some kind with an eerie greenish or odd colored appearance.
Giant exotic plants would go well here and maybe like creepy crawly King Kong sized bugs all over the place, but they should look interesting -something exotic and original that hasn't been seen before, but really outlandish.

Is he running into a cave of some kind? Maybe it's Vampira's lair and she's helping him take refuge but secretly has other plans for the girl. And maybe he has a guide or friend of some kind rushing him through the jungle.

Just some thoughts that came to my mind when looking at it...
I like your sketching style a lot it's really inspiring and cool to look at.

01 January 2010, 08:13 PM
@ Consideringthepickle : HAHAHA you are reading my mind ! Thanks for your support and your good ideas. Stay in touch for the next posts ;)

Hi there ! A little update with a new monster design :)
Comments and crits are welcome

You should have the monster coming out from a rock formation or out of the ground with debree and rocks flying everywhere.

It reminded me of a grabboid from Tremors, either way I'm sure it'll look great

01 January 2010, 04:47 PM
@ Aven99 : Nice idea mate thanks for your help :)

01 January 2010, 04:15 AM
wow! looking good. I like the composition, very B-Grade movieish:) The deluded kind of look in the monsters huge eye is also awesome, cant wait to see it when finnished!

01 January 2010, 04:43 AM
Awww he looks more like he wants to be friends than eat anyone lol. A pair of dinky little T-Rex arms would complete the design. That's definitely less scary looking than I expected haha

01 January 2010, 10:22 PM (

Hi there ! It's hard for me to find enough time to work on my image these days. I hope that next week will be less busy . Any way I am trying a new composition more like the old B-movies posters.

01 January 2010, 07:22 PM
Thats looking quiet cool. I think that will be..... some kind of "The lost world".

Waiting for more and wish a good luck.... :)

02 February 2010, 05:22 PM
Nice background with good depth of field, i'm waiting for the comp with the astronaut (with his buzz thunder gun^^) holding his sexy Jane (without helmet... normal it's b-movie she don't need to breathe) "hidden" big monster surrounding them
Good luck Nabil ;)

Nice works btw...

02 February 2010, 11:46 PM
looking good

02 February 2010, 05:33 AM

Incredible sketches and concept.

I especially like the hero's ray gun from the poster sketch.

Nailing the theme good with this methinks.

The sketch on the left from your last post looks to have more active negative space, but the one on the right has more dynamic lighting, and awesome Dark Crystal vulture cliff. Tough call. :shrug: Go with the one on the right. Even a B-Movie can afford dramatic lighting.

Awesome entry. :beer:

02 February 2010, 06:35 AM
awesome! I think the lighting to the right is probably best, however i like the more detail in the background in the left image (spiky prehistoric enviroment etc). very dramatic, its going to look awesome :)

02 February 2010, 07:25 AM
Wow, you've really gone through quite a few good options before settling on what you have now. I agree with the choice of the right sketch - the whiter background will really allow your characters to pop out & increase the drama. Looking forward to how this progresses, it's looking really good so far.

02 February 2010, 08:51 PM
@ Kerem : thanx
@ LucasLicata : thanx too !
@ ravioli_rancher : thanx for this good comments :beer:

hello, here is a speed color test I am still searching for the palette...
Comments ans crits are welcome

02 February 2010, 12:06 PM
Pretty cool concept! My fav color scheme is the blue one (A), I think it brings a nice contrast with the rest of the image :)

02 February 2010, 02:21 PM
Wow, looking really nice so far! Fun concept... although I would think so, as I'm pretty much doing the exact same concept! :( Don't worry, I didn't get the idea from you and I don't think you got the idea from me, it's all pretty obvious for b-movie stuff.... it's just a bit depressing to see both of us doing the same thing.

As for colors, I think C looks all too much the same color and misses the chance to make anything pop. Personally, I'm not a fan of primary color compositions so I can't really support B, but if there were a choice of only these two then B it would be. Good luck! :thumbsup:

02 February 2010, 03:52 PM
It's really interesting watching your ideas develop in this thread, I think you've got a really strong picture there.
My preference would be for the blue colour scheme, it's a bit more from an alien planet than the red which maybe could be easily earth.

02 February 2010, 06:15 PM (

Hello this a new update with more refined Trex and textures. I also worked on colors I think I am close to find the palette.

C&C are welcome

02 February 2010, 06:27 PM
@ Eskarina : Thank you for the comment and support :)

@Walrus : It's really amazing... you are right oO° both of us have dinosaurs, astronauts and vampires on our threads !! Well I must find something to make it different :(
Thanx for you comment on colours, it was just the first step I am still working on the palette to find a suitable one :)
Thanx again for your support and good luck to you too ! :beer:

@ StayFrosty : Thanx for your comment and support. Cheers

02 February 2010, 08:18 PM
gosh that really is a B movie poster complete with oil painting aesthetic. I think colour wise A and B have more POP as has been mentioned, but maybe having those at thumb size makes all the difference when it comes to judging the image. I personally like the warm colours of B as image comes across as more coherent (less competing colours i guess), but that is just my tastes..

keep exploring this wonderful prehistoric world you are creating ^^


02 February 2010, 09:40 PM
Ah! There's the other T-Rex concept :) I hope you stick by it. I like it.

02 February 2010, 11:25 PM (

Hello ! Here's an athore little bhuge update lol
I also started refining the humans.
Comments and crits are welcome

02 February 2010, 06:16 AM
Oh, Wow, It really has that authntic look. I've been folloving this from the start and I honestly thought it'd be much "smoother"
I'm not sure but does the title kind of fade away in the gorilla? I don't know if its good or bad..
What font did you use? It really has this retro-vibe :D

02 February 2010, 06:39 AM
Oh you switched it to an ordinary T-Rex. I was hoping for something unique and original, but the composition is really good. It's definitely a cool image.
The giant ape gives it more of the B-Movie feel of having several different absurd things all in one story together, but again, it seems to lack originality to me.

Anyways, the colors look very 50'sish especially the lighting from the ape -it looks like he's being lit up by studio lights on a set. It's a really cool style, but I think my position is if you're gonna go with dinosaurs and apes as the theme you should make the style more modern to give it an original flair. It might be just a little TOO much like a B-Movie poster the way it is now with nothing really special about it.
That's my opinion. Based on all the concepts you've got incredible skills so I'm sure whatever you decide will turn out great!

02 February 2010, 01:27 PM
I love it... I agree, the colours look spot on.

One thing that could be a nice tweak would be to make the ape/monkey more like a neanderthal/human... Not too much - the sharp teeth & expression are excellent - but enough to make it more strange & threatening.

02 February 2010, 07:46 PM
@ LightSovereign, MartinNielsen : Thank you guys ! Cheers !

@ LadyMedusa: Thanx for your good comment ! The title is not the final version, I'll work on the curve soon. The font I used is : and it's available with a lot of other cool fonts :)

@ Consideringthepickle : HAHAHA ! Thanx for this good comment ;)
"Originality in search of novelty is evidence of lack of originality" [Jacques de Bourbon Busset]. It doesn't matter if there's a Trex or a frog ... I believe that it's possible to make original stuff with "ordinary" things ... I am not good enough to pretend being original, I am just looking for fun, but the work is still in progress and sometimes miracles can happen... or not. ;)

@ AJ : Thanx mate ! What a cool Idea of the neanderthal ... I'll give it a try soon :beer:

02 February 2010, 08:16 PM
The colors are coming out beautiful. It has that B-movie poster quality.

02 February 2010, 08:16 PM

Haha yeah I agree. You've got a really interesting concept, I was just excited to see something I might have never seen before in the earlier concepts, but T-Rexes are really awesome no matter which way you slice it lol

02 February 2010, 08:56 PM
The font I used is : and it's available with a lot of other cool fonts :)
Dude, even the font title sounds like a little b-movie of it self, or a kick ass 80's zombie movie :)

Hello :) I had this new idea last night, so I am going to try to develop it since we still have 30 days left ;)
It will be my tribute to the most talented artist of all time.

I'll keep working on my first concept on the same time since I'still don't know which one I'll submit as a final image.

Great idea!!!
Keep it like that.
Just be careful, a lot of angry fans may find this offensive


02 February 2010, 03:49 AM
I'm already doing one with Michael Jackson! I see you changed your idea from the first sketches.

I think your previous idea of the Prehistoric Planet is cool. I just dont want ours to look to much alike with Michael Jackson.

02 February 2010, 11:09 AM
@ najjaci :I hope that the other fans won't find this offensive. I am a big fan too too and I really want it to be a tribute. Thanx for your support buddy :beer:

@ gregmcquay : Hey buddy that's cool, don't worry I am not doing a video and according to what I saw on your thread our concepts are different, so may the force be with you and good luck :thumbsup:

02 February 2010, 11:43 AM (

Hello, here's a new pose for Michael and bubbles.

02 February 2010, 12:52 PM
Hey man.. You are free to create what ever you want!

No hard feelings.. but I do have to submit a poster for my video in the image category! So they will be similar if you suddenly change your concept... and use Mike.

I thought I had an original idea until now! Just dont be surprised when my poster images are displayed.

''may the force be with you 2''

@ gregmcquay : I am having fun with my poster for the moment and as quoted, I still don't know which concept I'll submit as final image... Concept one or concept two or maybe a mix of both (I am already working on it)... I might even start a new concept if I had an other idea since I have time before the deadline !
Keep up your good work ! I am really interested to see your storyboard :thumbsup:

02 February 2010, 02:13 PM
Hey thanks man...I don't mean to sound like an angry fan slash mad artist!

Might not have a chance to win or even finish in the first place...but they do disqualify for similar work. So I was just giving you a heads up. No one wants to do months of work just to be disqualified. Plus the robot in mine is sort of like bubbles in they might clash.

Now on the other hand....they may take in consideration that I'm using the 80's version of Mike, which is a bit different from the latest Mike! :scream:

But you know what they say...great minds think alike!

Nice work so far man!

Good luck!

02 February 2010, 03:35 PM
Haha he's returned!

You should have him fly in on a saucer and land back on Earth lol

02 February 2010, 03:42 PM
Ok I think it's time for me to say good bye to Mike :sad:
My buddy gregmcquay is working on MJ And I found an other challenger working on Mike too :cry:

Rest in peace Michael... :bowdown:

02 February 2010, 05:07 PM
Ha Ha Haaaa! Wow! I didnt even see the smooth criminal!

He's using the 90's version...I have no problem with his.

Ours was so much alike with the space suits, poses, pets and all that.

To be honest the judges might not like the Mike idea anyway.

Well....I guess I'll replace my Mike with Elvis.:banghead:

02 February 2010, 07:06 PM
He Hee Heee! I think he may have bit hiself in the foot.
I uploaded my pre-vis before he did..but it shouldnt matter any how.

It's time to revive mike!

May the best man win!

Sorry for the drama..back to work.
