spacesnail: thanks a lot. Doing my best

duddlebug: thank you very much And as you guessed, it wasn't the final composition, just a shot of the octopus. As for the software, I'm going to use photoshop. I love illustrator rendering, but I want to try some things I never gave a shot at, like wet surfaces etc.

oatz: thank you! Glad you like it.

Vahn: thanks for your interest! Yes, clouds and sky are definitively planned. (love your avatar btw

Jimmimak: haha, thank you, these are cool names. Thank the people at your office for me

Jjjaaazzz: thank you; that helped (ho and Pulpy is a nice name too

anil6tr, W!L, goktug, RiverBarge, Asparta: thank you very much for your interest and the kind comments

Coloring WIP: first color

I'm not much of a colorist. I usually stick with big blocks of color, and I'm happy with that. But since this thing is called a "challenge", I want to try things I never tried before. So here's my first attempt at a more "brushy" style. It came as a real surprise but I actually enjoyed that. It offers lots of freedom (perhaps too much freedom actually :D ) and it's kinda fun.
Nothing is really blocked in at this stage. This is mostly me playing with Photoshop brushes and discovering that it's more cool than defining selections with the pencil tool :D
Once I'm more confident, I'll erase it all and start again from scratch.
But I'd really appreciate to get any kind of feedback. Thank you in advance :)

This is looking really nice! What a charming, fun scene! The face of the octopus is a little hard to read at the moment, but I'm sure that once you work more on his eyes, it'll be a lot more clear. I also like where you were going with the background island in that earlier sketch, and hope you'll reincorporate that. Anyhow, very delightful, good luck with it as you move forward... and good for you for challenging yourself with the color. It's the only way to grow...! :-)

Oh my my, this is so fun! It's a real pleasure to look at it, the color choices are really sweet and make the mood pop out stronger. Awfully cute, I love!

Hi Crowley, nice and funny picture. Original concept too.

I agree with Walrus, try to make the eyes of the octopus more readable. This is looking for the moment like a drawing from a comic where these kind of expressions are common and ok with a certain style, but I think for an illustration it needs to be defined a little more.

Looking forward to see it finished, good luck!

I only want to say that that octopus is so cute! Awwww!

the concept is very lighthearted. Definetely refreshing!

Lots of fun..........fantastic!

Great style and thoose concepts are great! But I think you can do a better composition! Have you thought of trying this shot from different camera angles/perspectives?

Keep it up man!

  04 April 2005

  04 April 2005
nice work !!

I love you concept and character designs a lot. The characters are very cute. The color choices are really beautiful. keep updating. Best of luck.

hey, you've got a really intriguing style... can't wait to see this come along. From somebody who doesn't specialise in colouring either all i can say is enjoy the experience, i kinda figure that's what this contest is all about...getting a chance to share thoughts with your peers, push a few limits ouside your normal comfort zone, and foremost of all, enjoy yourself. Looks great so far!

Coloring WIP: more coloring

New update, new colors. The previous color scheme was a little too... violent. So I decided to go with something more pastel. It's really basic, nothing final, but I think I'm getting closer to what I wanted (the keywords being "nice and funny"), and the overall mood seems more coherent.
As usual, any comment/critic/advice is much appreciated. Thank you :)

W!L, keko, Paul Davidson, jeromoo, BlacKeri, stefn, artjunkie: thanks a lot for the kind comments. Much appreciated

Walrus & Thierry: thanks for the tip about the eyes. I was going to just make them plain white, but you got a good point there.
As for the background island, well... I fear it might take the attention away from the characters. On the other hand, it made the picture a little less empty. Maybe by making it fade in the distance...

am7: I've tried some other angles, but I always came back to his one. I know it's not original and very basic, but I kinda like its simplicity

redfrog: I couldn't agree more
