Well for the first sight you can tell "It's not very original", battle between angel and demon, it's almost like 1283784657885947 time you see it. But for me it was the greatest challenge. Drawing armour and creating demon took a lot of effort, time and discipline. Especially when almost all the job was made by mouse, not tablet. If I would be original I'd create something like old nasty-looking black tree with beautiful flower, but I wanted to do something which would stuck me into thing I must work on I must develop and make slowly step by step. I took challenge instead of original idea.
Another thing is, I really like hybrid image of demon, at the beginning I had no idea how to create interesting look for demon. He had to be opposite of ideal creature which is angel- embodiment of all we think is connected with God- the ideal being. So we have conflict of Angel/Demon, Ideal/Chaotic being, Light/Darkness, they're fighting. And as the circle symbol I put here means that this fight don't have beginning nor end, it's just never-ending epic battle which we all know but not always keep in our minds.
This is my Battleship submission to the Starship competition.
This is now the FINAL version.
Well this looks like a Caldari Battleship. You can fit a full compliment of either guns and missiles launchers.. and has many bonuses like 100% increase to torp & cruise missile damage & 80% increase to shield hardeners etc.
I was worried that the Caldari had used all the bird of prey names but lucky there was a couple left. Lammergeier - a huge bird , a vulture, and feeds mostly on dead animals and apparently it drops fresh carcass bones on rocky ground from on high to feed on the marrow
The name Lammergeier literally means 'Lamb Catcher'.
Anyway, I love the ship I've made (wish I could upload the sketchup file for the competition too, not because of detail but because its always better to see the whole thing than just shots I hope to see it in game.
For the CCP contest version (which is updated a little bit to show some additional details and the added side drone bays though the ship is in a different light and setting): [link]
Always the same with me >.< "Cool, a contest I would like to join, but whaaa? Only 2 days left?? EEEEK! So I rushed to be able to join in, I hope you will like her. (I don't sand a chance, but it's the spirit, aint it?
I have choosen sorceress and tried to catch the elements lightning, fire and ice. And for her not beeing unnamed, I call her Nithaia Alshalla.
Love and hate, pleasure and pain, passion and affection, caresses and scratches, man and woman ... good and evil.
Many aspects of a single great idea ... a winner and a loser, but without one of them, fight have no sense, and the opposite becomes essential... Complementary...
So the eyes of lovers, kiss almost touched, and a strong close to her face which she answered with strong scratches.
Are they in love? Or do they hate each other?
Good or evil?
I try because I don't have a tablet and win one of them is a dream (probably will be the same for a long time ;__; ).
My "tools": Photoshop CS2, my damn mouse, only at the end with the help of a small tablet (thanks Giulia!), and my friend's patience. XD
This is my work for the contest, I hope you like it.
Dedicated to everyone have supported me during the creation totally insecure. A more special thanks to the "models" Mirò and Giulia, who have been suitable for the pose even though it was embarassment.
[Sorry for my english or mistakes... I do my best!]
Africa already lies in ruins and the tribes are spreading across the world looking for shelter against the fire from the sky. The hyena tribe found shelter by the skyscrapers in Asia, protected by the "iron giants" they build their new primitive homes within the iron houses in hope to withstand the doom thats about to happen.
Without electricity their primal skills fast became superior to the locals and with help of their vicious beasts they overtook the whole city who now leans at their feet, begging for food and shelter. The hyena clan is a cruel and proud clan that will stand their ground until the very last end.. Nothing can stop their determination. Only the strongest spirits will live on forever...
Another behemoth concept based on a thumbnail sketch. This took so long to get anywhere on because of my accursed addiction to Mass Effect. And then of course my subsequent Mass Effect withdrawal after finishing the last game. Now I must paint fan-art, ugh and I have so many other things to do already.
I got the idea for the blue head by looking at photos of rhinos in different lighting conditions, the particular image I was thinking of had intensely blue shadows. I didn't want that particular kind of lighting as I still wanted detailing in the head to be distinguishable, so he's blue skinned instead. Perhaps it confuses predators by breaking up his shape.
Other info: Fatty deposits atop the neck for food/water shortages. Has an obscenely long tongue as its primary mode of food consumption. Strange tusks are used to tear up the ground, trees, other behemoths, whatever it wants. Is twice the height of an african elephant, if it was standing in a forest it's legs could be mistaken for tree trunks.
Ancient and medieval history was my passion when I was young (and still is ). I wanted to go to archaeological studies but finally I chose IT - computer graphic specialization (I made this decision after watching Peter Jacksons The Lord of the Rings, hehe). So my art refers to this dream about archaeology. It would be great to discover some ancient city, to see places which havent been seen for ages by any human being. Another element which is connected with my childish dreams is the helicopter. Almost every boy wants to fly, to be a pilot. Also everyone knows that aeroplanes are better than helicopters, but in my opinion these second are more usuful for archaeologist
Now something about making of. First I made a 3d models and then I used some renders passes to paint over them. So this work is a mix of 3d and 2d techniques. The city design is inspired by Aztec Tenochtitlan's temple district.
