Grand Space Opera 2D Entry: Teemu Rajala


#89

whee! just 2 days left! Looks like I’m able to finish this. I ruthlessly used photo of a girl’s face to my lady Deathkiss and overpainted it. I also added pirate octopussy on the bottom right corner. :stuck_out_tongue:

Any comments/ideas?

Squibbit & Arctis: :slight_smile:


#91

simply excellent, dude, u got so much cool stuff in this pic !!


#92

Btw. Here is the photo I used for the woman’s face if someone is interested.

Squibbit: I’m very flattered that you like this work so much :love:


#93

yea well it got the carefree feel to it that I like so much :smiley:

and you did change the face and add your stuff to it so that’s
ok , and you posted the photo, which is one of course should do,
but you could have used the pic as reference rather than
just painting over

Hi there Teemu!
Very nice image that Youve done here :slight_smile:
Well imho the gaps between Dogs teeth should be darker, would give a better look.


#95

Crazy stuff :thumbsup:

Oh man, the character which holds the ammo devinetley competes with Squibbits “mashine-gun-dog”

I love both.

Love it, extremely fun illustration :thumbsup:

I did new face for madame and this shows also my painting process. I tried to give her more “witchier” look. She still needs some tweaking. :slight_smile:


#98

Squibbit: I guess you’re right about the paintover and maybe it’s a little bit doubtful to do one for the contest even sometimes it’s good way to work. Well, now the latest is purely painted :slight_smile:

Kaksht: Thanks! let’s see what I’m going to do about it :slight_smile:

Fahrija & SideAche: Thank you! :slight_smile:

ok, now i gotta say this , look at sketches 1-3 and you see a certain roundness
in the face that has disappeared in the latter pics, making the face look a bit
guyish to me, like that guy in Clockwork Orange or Jester from Batman.

try making the jaw shadows less sharp , at least in places… and the tip of
the jaw might need some adjusting too … maybe make it smaller or sharper…
also the corner of the eye might use some adjusting…

i tried and applied the photoshop smudge tool on the face just a few strokes,
but already you see the difference , right ?

sorry if i’m causing trouble , just trying to help :blush:

I think I’m getting quite finished with this work :slight_smile: Is there any last suggestions I still could do?


#101

Squibbit: Thanks a lot for the overpaint! :slight_smile: That really made me think again the woman’s face :slight_smile: I deciced to make paintng back to the reference’s direction. I think it just looks better and I’m still quite inexperienced painting faces so it’s good to stop playing around in time ;D

hmmm…

Congratulations on finishing your entry, nice colours and great visuals, it is nice to see some variety in entries too considering yours is a collage. Good luck! :slight_smile:


#104

WOW really really nice.

I like all your work in progress pictures also. Great sense of light and form. Cool layout also.


#105

Now it’s finally finished! I just did some brightness/contrast adjusting and minor tweaking here and there.

I hope you like it! :slight_smile:


#106

Hehehe lovely! Only thing that bugs me is the dog’s teeth. But thats about it.

Good job!

Nice work! I wasn’t sure how everything would read with so many elements in the frame, but with all the clean-up, it reads perfectly clear. You really saw it through, nice work!
