ok so I finnaly got this finnished and man does it have a lot of detail compaired to the rest of my peices. The clothing is all crosshatched to give the appearence of woven clothing/leather. The fur is all textured and fluffeh and and ... I really want to win.
I think I've spent a total of 2 months working on this picture, which besides my comic pages is the longest I've spent on any other picture.
I know I wont get 1st judging by some of the other pictures I've seen, but I'm really hoping for at least second... but third would be just as awsome
any way wish me luck and thank you to all who gave me critique tips on the WIP
This is my contribution for the contest. I was really in a rush, because I started very late (two days ago). This was done in Photoshop and Painter (mostly overpainted photos with some additional painted elements). I made a photo of my kitchen and washing machine for this and also used the stock from this contest. Working time was between 18 and 20 hours, I think.
Edit: Wow, my fourth DD! Thanks a lot to Astralseed and wdwparksgal for chosing and also thanks to all you people for your nice comments!
The Seneschal had been afraid to turn against the Brotherhood Cabal, but his sense of honour and duty allowed him no other option. He rejected the Cabal's beliefs that the people must be controlled through intimidation and suffering, witnessing in horror that those he had sworn to protect starved while the Brotherhood grew fat. In his disgust and despair, the Seneschal turned his back on the Brotherhood, taking with him only a tiny, stolen seed of hope. He dared not dream of the day when there would be no more cruel and violent subjugation, because the Cabal controlled the dreaming world as well as the waking world. But in the space between dreams, he was free, bearing with him the tender fruits of the hope that he had nurtured. There was still time...
well, i think that's all that i can do now for this battle. i had fun. but things happened around CNY that made me forgot about this contest. oh well, at least i got to participate in it. from tomorrow onwards, i'll be asking people to vote for me. i don't know how many would lend a hand though.... :< anyhow.. hope you like my entries entry 1: [link] entry 2: [link]
i've been painting this all day, and i couldn't wait to post it.
for this second entry i chose DEATH as a planar theme. i'm really happy of the way it turned out, and i think this one is quite better than the first entry, but well, i'm not gonna judge it...
anyways, i've tried to create something a bit more abstract and creepy but at the same time add some symbology like the scissors and that thing to use puppets. also the idea was that it would be a statue from the feet to the weist and that he could only move the thoracic cavity and the arms and heads. my fav part is the way that the arms become sleeves.
I really hope you like it. and if it doesn't win, at least i could use this as BLACK-DEATH-BROOTAL-METAL CD cover.
