Final Image: Rabbits and Robots

Software: Photoshop

This is it. The final image!

Rabbits and Robots!

I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Its pretty much all photoshop. I did a thumbnail on my lunch break on a scrap of paper. This no longer exists due to it being eaten by the washing machine. As you can see I tend to start with the line drawing- then start painting away. First, blocking out a palette. Then blocking out some basic lighting. Then just work it up. Paint in texture- and work it in. Rense and repeat untill satisfied.

In this image, I attempted to take a more painterly approach to it. I tried to stick to using more textured brushes in order to kep that raw feel to it.

I really enjoy the fishes and the robot in this. They have a really nice feel to them. Free flowing, but still have mass. I'm fairly happy with that.

Anyway, I had fun! Thanks for alll the support and I'm looking forward too seeing all the entries!

cool stuff. however, my only comment is that this image looks more like a sketch that is unfinished. kind of wish you would do more with it.

best of luck though.

awesome image! Congratulations on ur final piece, u finished it very early in the competition. I wouldnt mind seeing some parts of the image a bit more detailed and polished, but thats honestly just a matter of personal opinion. Other than that is great, techniqually and the subject itself! good luck!

I like the roughness. I think it looks like it could be a traditional painting...more so than most of the stuff on here. Great! (love the fish)

Line Art or Model: wait! REDUX

I had submitted the final image and washed my hands of the whole thing for awhile now. I wasn't happy but just didn't think I would have time to fix it and wasnt exactly inspired on what to do.

I'm showing a co-worker the image just the other day telling him I wasnt real fond and wish I could change direction to something I'm more comfortable with, then I get an email that says they extended the deadline two weeks!

So, here you have it. New direction that I'm much happier with. It reelects what I had in some of the earlier sketches much better I think.

Thumbs up

well, is good to see you have a fresh re-start, that will surely improve your piece or just fit it better with the image in your head. and thats always the hard thing to do....

see you around! good luck!
