Ok people!

I am back… Merry X-Mas and Happy New Year and all that:D
I had my hollyday and alot of tattoowork to do, but now I took the rest of the days till the challenge ends free.
Ok,… 'nuff said. Note to myself: Get cracking!:twisted:

Few sketches coming up…

Cheerz


#84

Some doodles of another creature idea…


#85

Here’s another idea,… but I think I will bring both concepts together. We’ll see…:slight_smile:


#86

First look at your work here.
I like the idea of contact between highly advanced and very low technology people. Your character design is definitely looking alien, however, still bipedal.
I’m not too sure if I would associate Grand (I mean really grand) Space Opera with it but I am certain many others will. The concepts look very well executed and there are a lot of ideas in there. Good luck to you in any case.

umm…u do know there’s just a week left ? paint paint :arteest:


#88

@Belisarius: Thanks for your input.:thumbsup:

@Squibbit: Yeha I know buddy! Keep sweating here as hell…lol! Will go with a mix of concept 2 and 3. Line work is coming up!


#89

Here we go. This is my final Concept. The Creature isn’t final. Still messing around with designs.
I also don’t know what details will appear while the progress:)


#90

Started with the lineart. As you see, I use the concept as referencelayer and draw the lines on a new layer. I’ll keep it very simple, because I wanna add details while coloring.


#91

And here is a closeup with a white BG. Easier for you to see what I do…


#92

Hi Tommy, glad to see you back from the hols. You need to get cracking! It’s looking to be a great pic, I really like the characterisation. I notice you seem to have ditched your values with the colour example, or are you going to start from scratch? Good luck however you decide to continue.


#93

love it, now finish it :wip: :wip: :wip: :bounce: :bounce: :smiley:


#94

I did the lines for the ship. Very loose, because it’s very distant…


#95

…and a close-up.


#96

Ok…coloring. Started with the sky and clouds…


#97

Here’s a closeup of the clouds. Very loose… but final touches in the end:)


#98
