I really like the feel of this one... in a creepy kind of way. It has the feel if a brothers grim tale.

At the moment, the light feels a little disconnected from the scene but I guess you will make thing tie in more with time. Actually, I quite like the way that the bg is flat like a stage prop.

Oh yeah, nice work on the beast. There is a lot of detail there but you havn't lost the form or character of him. Nice and imaginiative too.

Thanks for the feedback folks. =)

I'm currently working on the background, lighting and shadows will definitely be added/tweaked. Should have another update ready in a few hours.

Thanks again for commenting! =)

Coloring WIP: More background work...



I've done some more work on the background and I still have much work ahead of me...

I'm trying to figure out a way to intravenously inject my energy drinks in hopes they'll keep me awake and working longer, but so far no luck... ;)

Thanks for lookin'.

Another update's on its way soon. =)

Coloring WIP: More background work...



Getting closer. Still have a few hours more work ahead of me before I can even come close to calling this done. My final lighting, light fixtures, environmental effects, etc., all still need to be painted. I'd like to paint some cool patterns for those rugs if I have time and I'd still like to put a carpet coming down the stairs too... Must stay awake............

Thanks for lookin,. =)

Hehe! Cool style mixing! Gigerish textures on the wall. Yep, It starting to look ready

Hmm.. maybe you could try to add orange light coming from the bottom left hitting the beast? Or better not...

Final Image: "Obedience Training"



"Obedience Training"

Here's my final image. It's as finished as it's gonna get, considering how much time is left. I would've liked to do a more complicated pattern on the big rug (among other things), if time had permitted...

Anyways, I'm writing out my story now, should have it ready within the hour.

Thanks to those of you who stopped by and left comments and suggestions to show your support. I really appreciate it. =D

Thanks again.

As far as a story's for this piece is concerned; I'm afraid I don't have a detailed, or fantastic story for it at all...

When I first read the theme for this contest, the first thing that popped into my mind was my Great Dane puppy, Elvis. Who, I recently took through obedience training.

I often find people are intimidated by him because of his size (115+ lbs.), but little do they know, he's only an 8 month old pup. Who's only wants in life are to get petted and chew on things...

It was this whole "overgrown baby" idea, that inspired this piece. The creature (slave) is being disciplined by the young girl (master), because he's just chewed up her favorite stuffed doll. I wanted to show the slave as being "scary" in appearance, while still showing his timid nature toward his master.

As far as the piece itself is concerned; Pretty much the only thing I'm happy with, is the slave/creature. He came out how I wanted him to for the most part, but the rest of the piece was rushed from concept, to the final detail rendering. I was already slammed with work when I took this contest project on, so my schedule played a big part in the lack of quality in this piece.

But, once I had finished the slave, I figured that even if it had to be rushed, I needed to finish the whole piece. I could have done a lot better though, if I would have planned the composition and environment better, etc., etc... So, I honestly can't be upset by the lack of attention my entry has received, because it really isn't all that interesting to look at.

Oh well, it was definitely a learning experience. I don't think I've ever tried to do an abstract-ish background like this before and it's one of the few times I've ever drawn a child.

Big thanks again to those of you who dropped a line in this thread to show support or offer advice. You guys rock!

Good luck to all of you on your entries!

Malachi
