I know this is a bit of a change for me ,,,and I'm actually not sure how much time I will have for this works....I want to delelop this story line with my I will be staying away from space stations, battle cruisers, and mecha's that I normaly Love to build.....I want to show an epic tale ,,,a tragety and a fantasy,,,,,,with the wonderfully steriotypical set of 3 moons overhead ....

Here is a link to a larger version of this pic

This design looks spookily similar to the winning machineflesh image. A rider atop a monstrous steed. It looks good I am a big fan of up close and personal battle scenes (more so than spaceships) and look forward to seeing this one develop.

Iconic image.... Love your skethcing style.

I create therefore I am....

Dude, your machine modelling is incredible, I cant wait to see more development of your website. I think your concept drawing is strong too. I look forward to seeing your progress.

Thank you I am working now on some character spreads to get my bearings on this project.

...As for the similarity to Kris's winning entry from the machine flesh posted above....he created a great piece of art work and deserved the victory....he has inspired us all with his works....but now are none of us allowed to have a beast rider as a character ?
...I think if you look closly at Kris's piece and then at my sketch the only similarity is that there is a rider on a creature...pretty vauge comparison
....not so "spookily similar" after all
....maybe if i replaced 'm with a horse it would be better ...or maybe a man on a camel in the desert.....actually I've seen a friend of mine ride a donkey before wich was quite comical...maybe that will be better

maybe we are all just obsessed with something riding something elsE
