I wanted to envision an overbearing, intimidating monster, and took inspiration from a mixture of carnivorous plants and insects.
I was aiming for a creature that would move in an almost unpredictable, erratic way and look really creepy when chasing after the player(s). You're not meant to be sure what the markings mean or even how it senses your presence. People fear the unknown and that's what I'm going for with this.
Just a little thing I did for the contest.... I got bored while I was drawing, and finished up doing this XDDD Oh well, I got this idea last year, for the former desing contest.... but I didn't have time to finish it, and deleted the file So I re-did it XDD
Well, I'm pretty busy with school these days, Maths is just impossible, and the teacher is just an idiot. So... XDD
Anya has bailed me out of a lot of tight situations so I wanted to pay her a little homage. I like having the girls in the conflict since I play gears with my 22 year old daughter who is a cross between Anya and Sam, but my wife modeled for both when I did the picture. We will be back in the fray tonight! I mostly draw women fantasy portraits for a living, so I felt I would be in my element if I drew the girls. We've had fun! There is some cool competition out there. I hope we make the top 100 at least.
[ANOTHER DAY IN IMAGINATION ISLAND] AWMAIGAWHGD I CAN FINALLY SLEEP!!!!!
Anyway this piece punched me in the face, threw me into a fiery santa chimney and repeatedly forced me to commit extended-rope bungee jumping off a rocky shore... that I seriously need background practice @_@ I am sorry past self for being lazy! Then again I have colors to practice and 3D effects to worry... OTL *SIIIIIIIIIIIGH*
So to cover up my skill level I made sure it had the air and atmosphere it had over there. The character pose was heavily inspired by *humon's experience in her journal. No matter what differences, we should all at least be able to greet each other without discrimination! Years back, the person I was dating at that time was awed by me saying hello to a stranger that walked by and commented "she's not even that cute!" Dude, am I secretly an alien from outer space without me knowing because I didn't know that there was such rule stating you can only greet someone who you're attracted to! I was just trying to be polite! Besides greeting someone is just manners in society; not a sign of potential flirting. Why am I randing on a contest entry?! This world is filled with mysteries...
