I really like the colours you're going for! very fresh look

had almost no time to work on mine today - played around with what I have in xsi and toyed with lights... so here's a crappy render with makeshift textures and an overpaint to establish the idea a bit more... next post probably at the end of the long weekend - with something more substantial

Good stuff folks, keep it coming.

gpeaslee, nice to see you posting - I'd give the arms and legs more love though, definitely check out some anatomy books or references online (which exist in abundance) - for sure the arms and legs need some work. Also, be sure to have 8 concepts and not just one sketch.

Some nice entries starting to roll in... cool!

Here's another idea:

Totally unhappy with the bird-croc. I hope I can find a more interesting pet for that girl.

Michelle, these are cute! I'm digging the lower right hand sketch, the girl with the alien on her head, and the hippo on the chair - what is your favorite? Would love to see both ideas explored more, maybe tweaking the anatomy and the position of the characters relative to the viewer. Good starts!

Johan, interesting sketch, they both look sort of evil, is there a reason?

Sonya, really liking these sketches! They all exhibit some nice investment in terms of thought process and execution, nicely done. Lots of possibilities here - though less defined, the cow / slug / snail cracks me up, but as well there seem to be lots of other sketches with great potential. Good stuff! Kudos on doing the separate sketches for the owners, would like to see those maybe a little more extreme, maybe choose a pet and then make the owner somewhat resemble it in style or in theme. Keep exploring and pushing your ideas.

The Knitter

Finished it!
Wanna thx Rebecca for very inspiring workshop! thx
Looking forward to see other works finished aswell.
Posted this in finished 3d works also.
Modeling done in zbrush, heavy post in photoshop, used two photos also,, one is the background, and other is spinning wheel_didnt felt like modeling it....

Here is small story behind my image!

She was an old Knitter living beneath mountains of Amdo, one of Tibetan northeast regions.
She lived lonely life on the outskirts of a small village in which all people thought she was a witch.
Indeed, this old lady wasn't ordinary by many standards, one in particular, her calling.
She made here living by producing rare red silk known by the name Arakna.
Nothing unusual with that at first glance one would say, but, those who knew her better, knew where she got that silk from.
She kept few giant spiders in her manor as her pets, whose webbing, if properly refined, could produce this though shiny rare material.
In this image we see her absently gazing ahead, while holding one of her nasty pets.

Hope you'l have fun watching it as much as I had fun making it

ps, I know you mentioned we should restrain from big post's, if so for the final,, I'l edit to smaller, to 800px width.. regards!

WOW!! What a fantastic image, and in such a short period of time. Great stuff!!

I'm curious about how the background is created - is that modeled also? I'm curious to know what parts you created in 2D, and what parts in 3D - would be fun to see a breakdown of how you created your piece!

Fantastic stuff!
