Yup, that’s one big squid!


#42

Hey Haitham

It’s really good to see you here man, I really loved the ideas you came up with so far. I know its quiet freaky – 1st time CG Challenge – it is my 1st time here too, but am full of hopes.

Wish you good luck man


#43

Hala Mukhatib, keefak?

Yes it’s kinda freaky, but very fun nontheless :slight_smile: , and since your in it too I will go check your thread…

Cheers!


#44

Well, just another pirate… more to come ( if u have any notes on this one please feel free to share them :slight_smile: )


#45

Another brave pirate…


#46

Here’s the scene so far; I’ve added some more detail to the ship, and will hopefully add some more.

I might draw some shark fins sticking out of the water, hmmmmm I should try this idea :slight_smile:


#47

Just my opinion, but I think the turtle has more potential for humour than the squid (if that is what you are after). Keep up the good work!

Gord


#48

I have to agree with Gord… The turtle would have less of a “conquered” feel to it since turtles are less intimidating than giant squids.

I do like the composition and the characters though


#49

Thanks guys :slight_smile:

Yes, I do agree that the turtle was much funnier, but I had to change it because I don’t want this painting to seem to similar to the Pirates movies.
Also, it would be interesting and more challenging to give a squid some funny characteristics don’t u think? I hope I can do it.

Cheers!

Hey don’t change all your ideas because of what I said. In my opinion, the whole scene is a grab from the pirates movies, not just the turtle. Go ahead and do whatever you want, just don’t claim it as your own ideas.


#51

keep going my friend defentily a start for a good work so keep it up :thumbsup:


#52

ok, just started painting, the timing will be during the night and the main light source will be a lightning-bolt.
colors are still at the beginning and will change to fit the scene as much as possible.

thebest, thanks bro :slight_smile:


#53

Well, I’m back on track and started to work on my image again…
I’ve painted the gun ( forget the hand, it’s not done yet ).
Will post some more images when I finish something else :slight_smile:
Cheers


#54

doing a great job keep going …sorry for not giving any crits cuz I`am not a good painter :smiley:


#55

Well, I got tired from that pirate, so I thought of working a bit on the squid, still far from finished of course :slight_smile:

thebest, ah well man, crits will fall on me like rain soon, but not now since there’s nothing really done and ready for crits.

Cheers


#56

Hey Jassar, nice sketches and cool idea!! :thumbsup: I like a lot your squid texture, really great! ( i can feel the gummy texture of a real squid, great !! :smiley: ) Looking forward for more updates on your concept ! :slight_smile:


#57

Just worked some more on the squid…

Ferx, thanks man


#58

Well, just another update…


#59

I think you’ve got a really unique texture working there, but it really makes me wonder how he could possibly maintain his balance.
