Escape Plan B, Michael Dashow (2D)


#1

Title: Escape Plan B
Name: Michael Dashow
Country: USA
Software: 3ds max, Photoshop

Hi, all! I was inelligible to win any prizes in the Steampunk CGChallenge as I am a judge, but I worked on this piece for the challenge anyhow: I love getting feedback from folks and “hanging out with” friends during the Challenges, and who wouldn’t want a steampunk piece in their portfolio?

I built some base geometry for the mechanical bits in 3DS Max, but did all of the paint and color-work in Photoshop.

Oh, and if anyone’s interested in seeing the steps to the creation of this piece, you can follow the very long Challenge thread here: http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=278&t=697413&page=1&pp=50

Glad you enjoyed the WIP phase. And I hope you enjoy the judging phase soon! (There’s like what, 1000 entries to view? evil grin)

Jack, why do you think I was in such a rush to finish this before the deadline when I wasn’t submitting it? I’m going to be slammed with the judging for a while to come! :slight_smile:

Anyhow, thanks to everyone for the kind words!

I love this! Awesome composition and I really like how they are fending off a giant robot by throwing bananas! Shows that a sense of humor in paintings is always good.

Nice!
