What do you guys think?

Hi ahbeejieh,

I think this image has a lot of potential. The concept is very unique and would make for an excellent illustration. - J

Concept Sketch: hackers - slashers 2

Didnt want him to look too smart, so I ditched the upright posture and gave him a hunched down look. Made his other arm smaller too, kinda like a Fiddler Crab's. They've been trained to strike hard with their right arm all their life that there was no further use for development of their left arm... I guess they just used that arm to pick their nose or something :P Hence the unbalanced growth of the arms... Those spike things on their back still look like cheap props made out of styrofoam or something. I think it looks cool, and they use that to intimidate, kinda like a Cobra's frills... The muscles on those things contract signaling that they're ready for battle. It could even be something that picks up heat signature in the air, so that they can see in darkness, but I guess that takes it too far :P It needs more development.

Concept Sketch: winged whatever

Hi all. I havent been able to check in here as much as I could. There's a problem with my internet connection and I'm still having it checked by my network. My connection keeps lagging, and it's downloading stuff at a really slow rate. But I'll still try to comment on some of the works here. I've seen most of the entries so far, and everybody's lookin' good! Keep it up!

Here's my latest sketch. I just thought I'd expand a bit with my last sketch and kinda add some wings on the caster, as well as make his spell look even more powerful by adding the guys with the long swords at the bottom. I also added some more spectators at the background. The guy casting the spell is in some kind of test, and his peers are watching his performance or something. Hoping for your crits and comments. Tnx.

wow, this really is spectacular! Can't wait to see where they go!!

You finally added som swordsmen! They look great! Though i think i like the concept better with the previous ones.. A test is not as spectacular as showing your hidden powers to make a last stand for your friends! I say keep the spell with the swordsmen but go back to the previous scenarios..

I am liking the the previous concept. I would work with that, It has a more interesting compo,I would go with the previous one, unless you can come up with something better?

  • FourCrows: That makes two of us man
  • FrozZT: You like the swordsmen eh? That's a good point with the test thing. Only problem is, I dont know where to put the swordsmen in the previous composition I made... I'll try and experiment some more. Tnx.
  • beelow: Yep, goin' back to the previous one. And yeah, I'm still trying to come up with something better. I'm kinda losin' the spectacular idea with this concept. I might even consider tryin' out something else. We'll see. Tnx dude.

Naks, okay yung dating ha. Definately like the concept, but i would go with another angle. Something more dynamic naman para ma enhance yung impact nang storia mo
o sige, aabangan ko na lang. Goodluck din at salamati.

  • digitalhadz: Tnx for dropping by dude Sira parin kasi hanggang ngayon yung Wacom ko e, hindi ako makapaglaro ng strokes sa PS. Kaya tinatamad tuloy akong gawin to Pero makukuha ko rin yung bwisit na Wacom nayun pinaayos ko lang Type mo ba yung maka-langit kong concept? Astig sana kayalang, kulang sa movement dun sa picture e. Parang masyadong "solemn" yung dating e. Try kong i-sketch out ulit ng masmaganda ng makita natin ng maayos
  • kinonato: Sup man? Tnx for checkin my thread out. I'm expecting to make it over the finishline too I'll be taking a few elements from my last concept and put it in my previous concept. Glad you liked it!
