Like you say, if it's big and got good anatomy - you've got it "bang on." (No outer space pun intended there....LOL)

Cheers all

What I fear is everyone designing the same bloke. I was looking into great reputation and physical strength ratehr than size. Giants are always assumed to be tall people, why not just physically imposing with muscles or influence? If I do join I will try to make the viewer 'think' this guy is a giant, but not directly throw in the appearance of a giant that is over 10ft tall.

Hello there!
I'll try to enter this one. I'm currently attending Don Seegmiler's workshop on monster design, so it might be helpful
We'll see if I can wrap up something.
I can't wait to see what you all come up with.
Cheers

A giant...

Hello there. This is my first post, so I hope it goes through alright... You all have some cool work and I hope I can finish an illustration in the fortnight...

My idea is for a giant cyclops, who at first I wanted to be mean and pillaging, but as I drew him I soon found that he doesn't mean any harm, but pillages only in search of chocolate.... heheh. So here're a couple heads.

Interesting concept. I went and saw Body Worlds this weekend at the Dallas Museum of Science. I have been in anatomy class for a whole semester but nothing compared to viewing so many different aspects of the human anatomy as that. I would encourage all anatomy and figure artist to attend this "art" display while it is here in the US.

Oh, you know what? Sorry guys, I thought it was alright in this one to finish w/ a 2d illustration... unfortunately I don't know 3d! So I'll go find an appropriate thread. Thanks for the inspiration & keep working on the awesome stuff!

default-rol - didnt consider his proportion until I saw your post...p....
and....reply you question in cafe 04....the projection master thing....
the problem I face is..after pickup....the outcome is not what I
I have done in drop mode.....maybe like you were saying..the division is not
many enough......

infuscos - your giant head reminds me of the big monster in final fantasy advent children..
^ ^....and thanks for your video link in cafe 04....awesome video...(eventhough I
am not using zBrush 3...p..)



my concept is a giant who doesnt grow completely like a normal human...
his left arm is shorter and smaller...his skull is one side bigger...he has a long and sharp nose...and etc.........
besides...since he is a child of a fallen angel...he has a pair of wings too..gargoyle's wings..p..

still lots to work on........
don;t really know human anatomy well...hopefully can improve after this...^ ^..

Evening all,

Just letting you all know that tomorrow i'll be *once and for all, finally* getting on with my giant for this challenge.

With that said...

@ Igor Sandman >>> I did Don's first workshop in Monster Design. I hope you really enjoy it.

@ Nannoninn >>> Hello! and a warm welcome to you. You've got a really nice start for an idea there, and I hope you develop it, and really get something out of the project. I look forward to seeing more of your work.

@ aggie93 >>> Yeah, I'll bet that is a very visceral experience. Hope you broke out some pencils and had a good sketch book with you. nothing like drawing from the real thing i bet... even if it is "plasticised."

@ questionmarks >>> another first class start from you, and I look forward to seeing it worked up, like you have done with the other projects so far. Really great to see.

Cheers all
MIKE

Hey, don't leave! LOL! >>> 2D, 3D or both is perfectly fine on this thread. Everyone has their preference, and if your's is 2D then 2D is what you should do. Your choice of tools should not stop you enjoying the brief. Loads of people in previous workshops have only submitted 2D art, me included, so please feel free to carry on.

Cheers
MIKE

Default-rol: Thanks! I'll definitely be finishing something.

Aggie: I went to BodyWorlds as well, but wish so bad that I could have had an anatomy class beforehand! I should go again... Some of them were astounding..

Ah! I apologise for misleading you! Sorry I was just expecting to see it in 3d (as most people are)... Really sorry!

the next installment..

Hey peoples..
I did some silhouettes, to feel him/it out...



I started thinking, if this giant is a chocoholic, wouldn't he be pudgy? Or maybe he's a pms'ing female giant instead! :P Then again, pretty, lanky giants are more fun to draw... anyone have any suggestions?
