Wicked! the detail in the shadow of the zip is brill!


#102

Yeah, that’s a yummy tough alien chick :wink:


#103

I was off due to some reasons, but i have made my mind up to continue on the “video category” on this challenge. Thus I gave up with the “image category”. I wish i have time to complete both but schedule is tough and time gets short. I pray and hope i can produce a good video here. :cool:. Let’s see anyway.

I have changed my signature link to show the video category entry!!

By the way, your character looks like really Vin Diesel, haha! Your all work like a sci-fi book cover of 70s.

KU2GUN > ah, cool. i’ll go over there and check it out :slight_smile: nice one mate, can’t wait to see what you come up with!

js3d > yay, glad you think so! i wanted her to be atractive, but i didn’t want it to be gratuitous / cheesy.

DaVee > thanks man, really enjoying doing the details…but seem to be starting new ones all the time :confused: eek :slight_smile:

mmbenya > cheers man! :smiley:

slow progress…


#106

Very nice work, Neubius :thumbsup: One issue I have is the warm colors on the clouds. It looks like they are illuminated by a red sunset, but the light on the alien female looks more cold. Like a different light source. On the other hand the color contrast makes the female stand out from the background, so the color composition actually works here. Just a thought :slight_smile:


#107

ah, thanks man

i’ve got a colour ajustment layer just for her, i thought i’d over done it ( with lots of red ) i’ll turn it up! cheers mate :slight_smile:

nice work so far man. but one thing if is not too late. why the pants and not the skirt? . i mean… come on! she has to be almost naked … it looks like a hot place! :slight_smile:

Keep going . dont listen to my crappy feedback


#109

Looking good. The sand still too flat but it’s just the beginning, right? keep it up ^^


#113

This is just amazing to watch. The standard of your work is superb. I was wondering about the animal/beast. Perhaps some slight difference in the colour around the eye and mouth/gums areas and colour/saturation on the horns would add some interest. Or maybe not, because you clearly know what you are doing


#114

Hey A, I’ve been meaning to ask you, what are the clouds made of? Cause it would be strange to have water-clouds in a desert like yours. Maybe its a dustbowl comming this way? And that’s why she’s asking for a lift? I think that would echoe the swirly planet on the background… just some thoughts…

I’m really enjoying the movie poster quality of the picture. Keep 't commin.


#115

JoPu > cheers dude !

Pegahoul > yeah , just getting started on that. :slight_smile: thanks man.

mdavid > thanks. your definitely right, needs abit of variation. i’ll see what i can do.

GaeasHerald > hey , thanks dude! :smiley: haha you know, i hadn’t thought about that! i just wanted to paint some clouds! haha . hmmm you’ve got a point though :confused: going to have to find a way to work them in! many thanks,
A


#116

Nice one Alwyn, I like the sand texture and all those nice little details you’ve added to the girl. I’m wondering what you’ll do with those clouds now - but it’s all coming along nicely.


#117

me too! :smiley:

thanks man :slight_smile:


#118

worked a little more in.

flipped it just to try and see it fresh. may preffer it like this ( i think i do this everytime :confused: ) ha

still lots to do! but definately not going to introduce any more elements. polish and balance time i think :slight_smile:

Hi Alwyn! A good likeness on Riddick character! Sorry I come in so late! The female alien has a very well-rendered face. Her pants looks kind of unfinished to me maybe because of the blurry section. The flipped version reads more comfortably. I have to agree with the rest about the clouds. They are too saturated and I notice that you have repeated cloud tiles here. Try to avoid that because it looks unnatural. On another note, are you trying to depict an approaching storm clouds? If so, i suggest cooler and darker colours. Looking up good references will great help here. I suggest adding some footprints on the desert sand especially the one trudged up by the beast.

Keep it up!

jeromoo > thanks man. gald to see you on my thread :slight_smile:

yeah, only just started on her pants. adding the rifle slung across her back and the bag she’s carrying next.
i think your right about the desatuation of the clouds, they do seem a bit intense. don’t worry about the tiling they’re only in place to see if it works :slight_smile: been desperatly trying to fluff the them up too, they are looking a bit spungy wierd to me.

footprints! cool thanks hadn’t thought of that.
cheers for the pointers :slight_smile:
