Master and Servant 2D Entry: Simon Bull

hello again…had another busy night and had to stay back at work so i only got a bit done tonight…

started working on the dolphin…and before anyone says anything YES it is a dolphin…jst not one of those ones with the pointy noses (bottle nosed??)

anyways i wanna get him in so i can see what i need to do…make him cyber or not…i still dont like the idea of stuff comming out of him as it would look a bit cruel…its supposed to be a happy dolphin…and i wouldnt be haappy if i had heaps of crap drilled into me by stupid humans…in the start i wanted t think of him as just having line Nano stuff in him to control the ship but of course that doesnt tell the story very well…anways i guess ill ust have to see how it goes…but i intend to keep the dolphin environment looking once happy…just dunno how as of yet…

prepare for update madness again as ive got no work tomorrow (i hope ), i sit back with some beer and do some serious painting :0


#43

gonna do some quick work on the tank now and then work outwards…i think its the focus of the piece so i wanna get it in nice :slight_smile:


#44

Interesting theme you have going there… reminds me a bit of Willam Gibson’s ‘Johnny Mnemonic’ - that is the short story, not the badly done movie. Interesting to see how it goes. I’ve also gotta say i agree with Groady a little in that there needs to be a little more insinuation of the dolphin’s control. Looking good though.

@redfrog

Yeah man i 10003% agree…but the question is how to do it without making the slave look too much of a slave in the evil sense

dictionary meaning of slave…
“One BOUND in servitude as the property of a person or household.”

the key word in my story it the binding…its a bond of more than service…

i got some ideas but dunno if inm gonna try them out tonight…but dont worry its a major issue on my mind :slight_smile:

but of course thanks for the comments…keeps em streaming :0

Interesting idea, The colouring of the tank and dolphin looks cool. :slight_smile:

Maybe the tank needs something in the back… just to balance the composition out…just a thought :slight_smile:

You have been doing some nice progress. I really like the colours so far. I have one suggestion I’d like to make. It is just an idea but it would be interesting to see just a little bit of blood to make the situation a little more serious. Perhaps have the character’s hand stained with blood and as he reaches out to touch the glass there is a little bit of blood spread across the glass. I wouldn’t glorify the blood but make it feel little bit serious I think. Just an idea, I like your piece either way. :slight_smile:

yup thats on the cards for sure…
my intention is to have some smears of blood around the bady on the ground and also
on his face and neck…also i had also wanted to make it like his hand had slid on the glass tank and left a blood smear…i did a few tests a while back and i think i can pull it off with out making it at all gory…more of a touching feeling then a yucky feeling…

my intentions at this stage are mainly to get the base layer down and have all the lines straight and shaded…then ill ad the details…

Still got a hell of a long way to go tho…hehe

thanks for the suggestions…im trying to take as many of them on board as i can…
