What a beautiful and polished sketch! I see you will have no problems finishing this in time!

Simply beautiful work so far. You have to love those sketches...

Amazing. You could win even just with the line art.

Great illustration and great skills. I'm officially envy!

Aww man! I'd love to be able to do line art like this. It would so much more of a pleasure to colour in than my messy drawing hehehe. Looking good I look forward to seeing how it looks coloured!

Work In Progress: Values in progress

Thank you for the notes, everyone. I've been busy with out-of-town guests and finally have had some more time to work on this. It's rough and still coming along, but just thought I'd post some progress to show I'm still alive. The closest two characters have been worked on the most, everything else hasn't really been touched at all yet.

Hey Mike!
Great work so far, It's been changing a lot but is good to see you go for a closer shoot now. The line work looks really good, the only part that bugs me is the position of the right arm of the alien holding the guy. the hand is folding back to carry the weight, but at times I think it looks like a stump, maybe it's the line where the two wrists meet. Anyway a good shadow between both arms will fix that, and for what I see in your last post there's gonna be a good amount of shadow there.
the first plane (female?) alien holding her hands somewhat reminds me of one of those Muppet cows (at least in the linework) they were so funny

Good work. I'ts fun to se a halfway step like this one rather than a pass on the entire picture, tells some more about the process, I think...

Safe!, its looking safe..(it was the only word that came to me.).
I am finding very little to crit..

Though appreciating the shadow of the right mushroom architecture .

I'm glad to see that you are still working on it! Please keep going, Mike!

Gabriel - Thanks for the comments. Wait 'til it's all shaded and colored and see if it's still looking stumpy or not. I can always make adjustments down the road...

Marley - Thanks, I like those shadows too. When I'm using 3D in a piece, as I am here, I like to work out the basic shapes and then place the lights based on where I get good readibility and interesting shadows. Now I'm just lighting the 2D aspects to match. I did the same thing in 'Farewell Kiss.' (By the way, and completely off topic, I really liked your peice for the PixelBrush 'Massive' contest, and I voted for it. Nice work!)

Jerome - Nope, never gave up on this. I've just had out-of-town guests the past 2 weekends which has slowed me down a bit. And I got a really late start due to the Dominance War contest. But as soon as this topic was announced, my wife insisted, "Hurry up and finish your Dominance War entry so you can do the Challenge. You have to do the Challenge!" Because doing humans and aliens interacting is really my thing, what I love doing most. It'll be a tight squeeze, but I'll make it.
(But CGTalk announcing their usual date extension would be most welcome any day now!)
