Latest Update: Final Image: The Island Of Delirium (

01-19-2010, 09:52 PM (

Hey! Good luck to all!
My first idea is to make eyecathing shot or poster of B-movie. Everything must be looking great but if you'll get closer you'll see some interesting details. How it was made, you know...
Have fun!

01-19-2010, 10:35 PM
This looks great!

And I'm not only saying that because I'm heading in the same direction... ;)
I guess that you are bound to get some of the same element with this many contestants, so don't feel that you have to change anything if that mic pole pops up somewhere else!

It will be nice to see how this turns out! I like the sketch so far!

01-20-2010, 07:16 AM
hey sergey!

i like your work very much.
this sounds like a fun idea. i looking forward to see the progress here.
good luck.

01-20-2010, 08:14 AM
the visible microphone is a musthave! :beer:

01-20-2010, 09:31 AM

01-20-2010, 10:27 PM (

Just started to think about robot design and composition.

01-20-2010, 10:34 PM
Thanks everybody!

eRKK, yeah, agreed, thank you!
Marat-Ars, glad to see you! Thank you! Are you in?

Good luck to all of you too, and thanks again for so great feedback! :buttrock:

01-20-2010, 10:52 PM
I'm a big fan of your work - really looking forward to more :wip:

01-20-2010, 11:44 PM

nice progress! :thumbsup:

01-23-2010, 03:30 AM
Hey mate,

I'm really glad you are in this comp, its going to be awesome!!

- Ty

01-27-2010, 05:54 PM
You joined, great, it will be interesting to watch.
Good luck!

01-28-2010, 08:06 AM (

Thank you, thank you! I know that it is hard to get what is going on out there, but please wait a little bit more.
And by the way, my friends, what about such a title for my work - Delirium Island - is it correct, or may be better would be - The Island Of Delirium? Cause I don't know English very well and I thought somebody could help me. Thanks one more time!

01-28-2010, 08:38 AM
Both are fine, though Island of Delirium slides off the brain a little better.

If you were to call it "Delirious Island", it could imply that the island itself is delirious, and anyone on it is s**t out of luck :D

Looking forward to those updates you promised us :wip:, but I understand that Real life can take up a lot of time.


01-28-2010, 08:54 AM
Greetings, Sergey! Interesting idea and not bad sketches. Good luck! I glad that you participate in competition.

01-28-2010, 09:29 AM
RageOfAges, thanks, man! Yeah, real life is unreally time taking!
Dmitry, here you are! I'm very glad that you is on CGSociety now! :thumbsup: And thank you!

01-28-2010, 11:34 AM
Well this is thread I will keep my eye on. based on you render skills, I can only say we will all need to work harder. still not sure what's going on in the scene, but I guess you need some time to figure it out too.
any way good luck :thumbsup: . I'm sure you will.

01-29-2010, 07:38 AM
looking forward to seeing more

01-29-2010, 01:17 PM (

Thank you for awaiting :)
Finally I have all things clear!

Cast (in order of appearance :))
Director (his reflection we will see in the metal part of the robot, if you remember)
Space Villain (the creator of the robot)
Two man (as Robot)
The girl (victim ahhhh!)
Welder hero (he's burning)

In brief:
Here is a fatal disaster on the stage. Everything go wrong here.
The guys inside robot sitting on each other can't stand straight any more. That is why the girl is falling down and the villain have a broken spacesuit.
I plan to do a lot of details, so the story will be more interesting.

01-29-2010, 01:19 PM
Oh, man! Why it is so sharpened!? :surprised

Here is larger sketch

01-29-2010, 02:22 PM
Sweet update! Forms are really starting to come out. Gogo Peleng!!


01-29-2010, 10:01 PM
Hey Sergey,

Really great concept, like a lot your idea. And the last composition is totally cool, works really well.
Good luck and looking forward for more updates. Cheers!! :beer:

01-31-2010, 02:52 PM
I really like your artwork... your rendering and use of color is pretty awesome.
I like the concept of you image as well, I can kind of see it all painted up in you style and it would look awesome.... looking forward to more.

02-01-2010, 01:07 PM (

Thank you for kind words!
At first I wanted to make sunny scene, but then I made up my mind to make image more mystical. Here is what I have at this moment. I think it will be a start point for further work.
Ready, Set, Go! He-he, I'm a turtle, I'm so slooooow.

02-01-2010, 01:41 PM

02-01-2010, 03:42 PM
I find it great like you handle with the brushstrokes and the colours.
This simply has character!
I am glad on more.

02-01-2010, 03:49 PM
I think, it'll be epic work;) Good luck;)

02-02-2010, 07:59 PM
Ah man, this is going to be so awesome to follow! I can't wait to see more!! :D

02-03-2010, 08:50 AM
A little bit of bioshock feeling in here. I like this women flying on top of robot's head. Colors remind me those old movie-posters feeling. I'm sure it will be great piece. Keep going.

02-03-2010, 01:07 PM
I have no idea how this will turn out or what it's about, so come on and show more! :D
Looking forward to watch it progress.

02-03-2010, 01:36 PM
жги! :twisted:

02-03-2010, 01:50 PM (

Just a little update for today.

02-03-2010, 01:59 PM
Thanks everybody for viewing my B-Thread!

yakonusuke, yes everything will be clear soon. The next step will be working on characters.

serio, agreed, if somebody decided to make a B-Movie called Bioshock then it would look like what I have, hehe.

warpv, thank you, mate!

Sezanne, yeah! :twisted:

02-03-2010, 02:30 PM
Its so great how u portray all those dynamic poses of the characters. I have to learn that! :D all those legs pointing in all directions, twisted bodies.. love it!

02-03-2010, 02:41 PM
This is turning out jus as I expected anythin from you.
I like how u use colors. Its something that should be coming natural to you now , but I wanted to know, when you started, how do u go about selecting a family of colors.

No idea if I explained my question clearly, but a promising progress and thanks for ur comments on my thread.

02-03-2010, 03:02 PM
I don't quite actually understand what's going on at this stage...
But I figured out from previous posts that it's about seeing people (puppeteers) and stuff operating robot on the set, on actual (fictional anyway) movie poster...? Or I get something wrong...?

02-03-2010, 03:51 PM
NinjaA55N, thank you! I have to learn something from you, for example color using - colors in your B-movie work are just great!

sandsekh I see. I must say that I had a big trouble with choosing colors for this work, there were so many attempts and variants... But finally I cought a clear vision of what I want to do and I started to paint faster, because I already had an image in my head. So I think that is the case.
I just made a layer with multiply mode over my first black and white sketch, and started to paint. Usually I start from grey (dirty) colors and then I move to more bright and clean colors. Also I use to set the brush opacity to 50% and after I have all basic colors on canvas I start to mix them and so on...

deadrockboy, everything will be clear on final image :) Actually you are right.
Group of actors with Director in head are trying to make a poster image, but all things are going wrong.

02-05-2010, 12:25 PM (

Here are the first steps of working on characters.

02-05-2010, 12:56 PM

02-17-2010, 06:55 PM
Truly fabulous Peleng. Love the idea, the drawing is superb and the way the colour is moving looks fantastic. Those feet really are planted on the ground plane. Nice job.

02-17-2010, 07:22 PM

i like your idea, looks a little bit like a sort of scetches from 1900.
Very cool taste.

Hope too see more. Good luck

I'm watching this closely. Nothing less than a great piece of artwork is what we all should expect from you.


02-20-2010, 12:33 AM
By gum, but you can't half draw and paint, Sergey. Love theis detail. Really shows that ability.

02-20-2010, 07:19 AM
Incredibly as you handle with colours.

02-20-2010, 09:55 AM

Man, this is looking most awesome!!! :drool:

02-20-2010, 06:32 PM
Freaking inspirational work here! The shapes and colors really pull me in to your work - even details keep the spontaneity of a sketch. Cool characters too.

02-20-2010, 11:58 PM
Wow. This looks great. Even the roughs look better than anything I've done. You definitely are an inspiration. Good luck.

Wish you all the best, i know you will win, i can feel it


03-04-2010, 03:29 PM
This is good in too many ways to mention. You handle expression and dynamism like it's easy, not to mention the colour... ah... the colour. Remember to start clearing a space for your prizes.

03-04-2010, 05:05 PM
Wow, can't wait to see this finished! As always, very strong work!

03-07-2010, 12:04 AM (

Thank you!
After being a while busy I'm back trying finish this work.

03-07-2010, 12:07 AM
you didn't reveal much with the latest update...but...damn...those are really nice colors.

03-07-2010, 08:40 PM
excellent as usual... very curious to see the finished product!

03-08-2010, 08:53 AM
excellent, especially the fresnel effect on the varnish and the expression of the director in the reflection.

but looking at the whole image some pages ago, there's something i would like to mention. if the man in the robot is losing balance, i suggest to raise one of the robots leg or to put the robots lower part more wonky to enhance the look of him going down. :D
as it is now, he looks very stable.
but nonetheless, your work is impressive as hell! :buttrock:

03-08-2010, 12:29 PM
I love that you can see the film crew in the reflection... I can't wait to see this finised :love:

03-08-2010, 12:50 PM
This is good in too many ways to mention. You handle expression and dynamism like it's easy, not to mention the colour... ah... the colour. Remember to start clearing a space for your prizes.
Simon basically said it all... I personally also can't stop staring at those robot fingers - it's amazing how much form and texture there is in them, with just those wide strokes :surprised - :bowdown: Respect!

03-08-2010, 03:17 PM
Your brushstroke poetry is amazing. Great sense and use of color--as always.
Can’t wait to see the finale.

Thanks to all!
I really appreciate your words!

Bran, yes I see, but the bottom man still stable - the top one is unstable. Thank you.

There is not so much time left and I need to hurry. The whole image I'll post when all things will be on the right place. Thank you one more time!

Absolutely incredible work, your handle of the various textures and colors is inspiring as hell. Bloody amazing!

03-13-2010, 01:05 PM
Is is hot inside that robot, couse that guy, with the cigarette, is so shiny, is it suet?

Great stuff so far!

03-15-2010, 02:13 AM
You have a really beautiful style...looking forward to seeing the finished product.

03-15-2010, 05:27 AM
your fundation is very good!

the idea and the color are both well!
a promising piece!look forward to your final work!

by the way, i think you should be alert to over depicting, that means too scrupulous about every detail. i always believes that depicting every detail means no detail, we'd better chose those most important detail to be prudently paint and keep those less important parts loose, which makes important element stand out and simultaneously give more variation to the whole piece.

my work has also proceeded to the final procedure, but the entire effect is not satisfactory, please give me some advice.

good luck! cheers!

03-15-2010, 05:39 AM
i can't get over the level of professionalism on display here, such clear and precise technique..sorry nothing to deep to post, just admiration!!


03-15-2010, 08:28 AM
I didn't read the entire thread, but your brushwork is FANTASTIC.

So much eyecandy! Love it.

03-16-2010, 09:51 AM
I like this certain elegance of your style. It seems that every brush stroke is very carefully handled but still nothing is overrendered... I would call it a STYLE ;)

03-16-2010, 12:08 PM
you sir are a GOOOOOOOOOOOD!!! :):):)

i couldn't w8 for your whole coposition preview so i puzled it out of the pieces you left,
and it loooooks AWESOME!

you need to hurry a bit because the deadline is just 3 days away.

Outstanding, loving the reflection of the crew in the robot's body.

03-16-2010, 02:46 PM


please fill in the spaces with the dots any amount of words like "stunning", "awesome", "brilliant", "ingenious", "amazing", "splendid". my vocabulary is used up. :cry:

03-16-2010, 03:24 PM
AWESOME! every stroke has a reason to be there,can you tell me which program do you use?
thanks in advanced.

03-16-2010, 03:28 PM
Superb brushwork and scary good lighting & colours. One thing, I think it would be better if the guy on the right was looking upwards as his helmet is smashed. First, it's a natural thing to do and second it was a while before I spotted that the robot has smashed the glass.

03-16-2010, 08:04 PM
Amazing work, i can't stop looking at this!

03-17-2010, 01:06 AM

Hi, I new here. . .I can't believe this is the first time I'm seeing this. Your work is amazing. I'm still learning-but your strokes and method of refinement, style idea-it's all awesome. When you posted the update with the reflection of the camera man my jaw droped dude.
Congrats and good luck
if you have any time please check out my piece-I got off to a slow start and am open to crits

Working on background.

Working on environment. The image almost done.

03-18-2010, 12:16 PM
peleng rocking the challenge with the speed of light!

the use of colors is stunning. every single brushstroke i can see makes sense.
and i like the details you've worked in like the socket-outlet hidden in the foliage.

i won't expect less from you than a winning entry (in my opinion, yours already has won). :)

undead greetings from out a misty bog,

03-18-2010, 03:53 PM
great update Sergey!
love the power switch hidden in the foliage :):):)

pedal to the metal! :)

03-18-2010, 04:29 PM
Ya know, when I look at piece like this I just say Damn. . .I have a way to go. I really like your strokes, and style. You know where to add detail and where you can imply.

03-18-2010, 04:54 PM
Great to see new stuff!
Every update is a learning process for me.

Keep it coming! :thumbsup:

Ok. I've finished, but James Cameron called me yesterday and told me that I should try 3d effect, so I did...
Cmon, take your stereo glasses!

03-19-2010, 06:35 AM
Here is a big image. (

03-19-2010, 06:51 AM
how to make this effect,i really want to know about that.thanks in advanced.
great! i really want to see the normal one.

03-19-2010, 07:30 AM
don't have a red-cyan-glasses, time to buy me one... *mumble*

03-19-2010, 09:05 AM

You got my vote!

looing at it work on a HUGE monitor with some 3D glasses laying around...been a while since i've been blown away from an image...Very inspiring work

03-19-2010, 09:49 AM
HeadSmell, thank you very much!
Bran, he-he. Must have.
Irawan, it was a long process. Here is a simple scheme.

03-19-2010, 10:12 AM
comparing the small stereoscopic image with the small originals, it has even without a stereoglasses a surprisingly effect of depth...:cool:

great idea making a stereoscopic painting, peleng! :thumbsup:

03-19-2010, 10:18 AM
hi sergey,big thanks from me!
you have done masterpiece of

03-19-2010, 10:37 AM

the 3d effect is such a nice move, the only problem is my nephew cut my 3D glasses into pieces :(
so like Irawan i would really like to see the preview of the normal version, pretty please :)

this is my favorite entry in this challenge, and if you ask me your piece deserves to be among the top works judges choose ...

this was a pleasure to watch, GOOD LUCK SERGEY!!! :)


03-19-2010, 10:43 AM (

OK, it's time to finish.

03-19-2010, 10:55 AM
again i have to write down that this is my absolute topfavorite among all (image-)entries.

your handling of colors and brushstrokes that generate such detailed art and the razorsharp, almost 3d-like shapes have created a breathtaking image. the way how the objects refer to each other and the story that is told by the unique characters and the slightly hidden details such as the reflections of the director and the powerswitch in the shadows of the plants, i think, is another reason why your work should be a winner.

undead greetz,

03-19-2010, 10:58 AM
Finally, the long-awaited finale. One of my favorites, Just no words... Great. Congratulations, respect.

03-19-2010, 10:58 AM
Whoooaaaaa! The anaglyph 3d, what a wild card surprise. It works great. I just happen to have a pair of a-glasses laying around in a whatnot drawer next to my desk.

Great finish!
Good luck!

03-19-2010, 11:01 AM
Very nice painting, i like the candy-look of the robo's arm. I agree to BaronImpossible's post, I can't read in first look what's happened with the glass helmet. Anyway overall looks really great.

03-19-2010, 11:17 AM
Outstanding work ! Waow ! Congratulation ! And your wip is very interesting.

Software: Photoshop

- And the last question mr. Birated. You was acting in The Island Of Delirium movie where we could see you as a green head villain, the master of a robot with freeze gun. Do you remember this comedy?
- Mmm... I thought we were doing the drama...
- Anyway, what was the feeling of working with Dan Satanovsky, the director of this movie?
- Who the hell is this guy?.. Oh, yes, I do remember him! Well he was very nice fellow. Me and the other actors, we really didn't understand what should we do on the stage, and many times everything were going wrong, but I think that Dan was happy with this movie.
- But this movie was a great failure... What do you think about it?
- What movie?.. I don't understand... Who the hell are you? What the...

Thanks for the tip on seeing the hiRes version of the entries.
I’ve been curious to see the entries up close and personal.
Your entry is quite impressive at 100%. As was expected.

03-19-2010, 12:29 PM

And it is large! very impressive work, thanks for posting that mate

03-19-2010, 12:39 PM
Beautiful! Glad you could finish this. Good luck, man!

03-19-2010, 01:21 PM
Gorgeous work, Peleng! If you don't win one of the top 2 prizes, you certainly deserve the category for best painting. Your brushstrokes are masterful. :bowdown: Congrats on the great job! :thumbsup:

03-19-2010, 02:38 PM
Peleng.Thank you!
Your thread is as informative as much as it is fun. The piece has turned out really good.
I liked how you put in all the little details like the crews reflection on robot, pieces of glass, the guy sweating inside ..etc and yet maintained those gorgeous strokes.

Very Commendable and Yeah, All the very best.. :)

03-19-2010, 02:40 PM
That turned out brilliant, as expected. Great work and good luck!

03-19-2010, 04:11 PM
Ya, brilliant, original and fantastic technique. I have been lurking around watching the progress of this one often and have really enjoyed seeing how you go about your business.

03-19-2010, 04:14 PM
Great! I love it! Good luck man :)

03-19-2010, 04:53 PM
Amazing work! 3D was cool bonus but the image itself is so strong so that effect wasn't necessary. Once again super duper image.

03-20-2010, 09:08 AM
Damn, your painting skills and use of colors are flat out AWESOME!!
Will be a winner for sure. :applause:

03-20-2010, 03:33 PM
Thank you guys!

I have a problem with Internet connection at home, so I will read carefully and reply when it's gonna be alright.

03-20-2010, 03:52 PM
Beautiful work. I like how you kept it so clean, which put my entry to shame because it's sooooo busy. Your technique and perception of lighting is really outstanding.

Good luck,

03-20-2010, 04:47 PM
Really classy work! You're a master in color handling.

03-20-2010, 06:38 PM

Wifey (an art director) really thought this was one of the best of the lot, and I agreed. Original and beautifully painted. Best of luck.

03-24-2010, 02:30 PM
Masterful brush work man.. Really great, I like how non busy your image is but yet how complex the lighting and coloring and shading is..Really awesome work, one of my favorite 2d images of the contest..congrats on finishing

03-24-2010, 04:43 PM
Beautiful work.

Really great to see it finish, but it was a real joy seeing it come together too!


03-25-2010, 12:26 PM
Awesome work Sergey :bowdown:

03-27-2010, 11:31 AM
You've got it all there, Sergey!!

Great understanding of lighting, materials, color and structure; your sense of design's spot-on, as are your brushmarks and gestures - all are superb.... This has to be one of the best entries I've ever seen here - Just one amazing piece of work :)

03-27-2010, 03:21 PM
Thank you, thank you very much friends! :buttrock: :beer:

03-27-2010, 08:31 PM
Totally incredible! Every inch of your painting is treated with such a professional skill-level, it's truly masterful! I think you have the best digital brushwork I have ever seen, hands down.

04-06-2010, 03:11 AM
Gorgeous! Looks fantastic!

04-06-2010, 05:57 AM
Hideyoshi, thank you so much! I'm very glad to hear from you!
MrSkyfish, thank you, thank you!

Yeah. Thank you very much Marat! :beer:

06-18-2010, 05:22 AM
Ok, at last the judging is over and the challenge is finished.
I would like to thank everybody who leaved comments here! It was really helpfull feedback! Thank you many times!
I'm not among winners, so it gives me one more interesting chance in next challenges!
Congratulations to all winners - it is very well done stuff! :thumbsup:

Good luck everybody!

06-18-2010, 07:13 AM
That kinda suck man, I'm was really surprised to see that your not in the winners.

Anyways, the image you did still awsome


06-18-2010, 07:53 AM
I was surprised not to see Your exellent work amount other winning pieces but that's life. I wish to see "Honorable mentioned" on the site like they always did but this time they skipped it.. that's somehow disappoint me but we have to deal with it. Anyway great work.

06-18-2010, 09:39 AM
hey peleng,

though your image is not among the announced winners, for me it has won anyway this challenge. :buttrock:

06-18-2010, 09:45 AM
i agree with the comments above, your illustration was really the one with the most quality in it.
it deserved at least an honorable mention ...

so congratulations to you to!!!
can't w8 for the next one to see what will you cook up :)


06-18-2010, 10:06 AM
He-he, thank you very much guys! Really appreciate your words!
There are really great works among winners. As for me - well, I'll work harder next time.
Hmmm... When will be the next challenge? Tomorrow? The day after? :)

06-18-2010, 02:56 PM
Too bad, Peleng, I also think you deserved it. You'll make it next time then, for sure. Can't wait for that :)

You asked how to become judge: One way is to win a challenge.

06-21-2010, 08:39 AM
Maybe your idea was not so original but the painting style deserved at least to best dig. painting award. Big disappointment.

06-21-2010, 08:47 AM
I loved everything about your image Sergey. The idea was strong and beautifully painted. Your painterly style is just wonderful. I can't imagine that judging was anything but torturous for those involved. There were so many outstanding entries (and I do love the winner in this category - the idea and finish is outstanding), and yours was right up there among the best (at least in my opinion). It must have come down to a personal taste thing in the final stretch. Maybe they need a bigger array of smaller prizes to reward all the excellence - but then maybe the numbers wouldn't be so tempted to join in??

Bad luck on this one, but be consoled by the fact that you have ended with a fantastic and widely acclaimed image, that will be a superb addition to your wonderful portfolio. May the jurors look on you more kindly next time.

Best of luck - keep the images flowing.

06-21-2010, 05:01 PM
:cry: injustice...
I agree and makes sad...

06-21-2010, 06:47 PM
I really like, it reminds me of the anarchic nature of B Movies.

The 3D works really well, shame you lose the colours though.

06-21-2010, 07:50 PM
Well, I’ve come to the conclusion that your work is just too damn good for the contest folly of mere mortals.
Great work--as always.
:thumbsup: x10

Are you entering the NVArt–Accelrate contest?

06-22-2010, 06:43 AM
Wow, thank you guys for your kind words.
Yeap, there are a lot of great entries, and the winners show us a very well done stuff! And I must say that I really happy of being participating with the masters! And your words are just the best prize for me. Thank you!

Hey Bill, congrats to you! Some days ago I was thinking of entering Accelerate, but there is not much time left, and I'm veeeery slow:), so I made up my mind to wait the next contest.


06-23-2010, 11:33 AM
I'm new around here but I must say in my opinion this is one of the most awesome pieces of work i've seen! Congrats!
