Homage to Giger by GrungeTV Homage to Giger by GrungeTV
This is my homage to HR Giger. Any Giger fans will recognize the original as 'Samurai'.

I tried to keep close to the original without completely re-painting it.

Painter and Photoshop - 6 hours approx.

Hope you like it!

A little bit cooler than Gigers. The design is just a little more interesting, but Giger is still the king of texturing.

Oh wow- as a fan of Giger, I am PLEASED. The depth and texture are really extraordinary, and there's a recogninable sense of not-Giger, which is rare in people who emulate his work. They tend to go all the way, or not at all. Great job integrating your own style into this, especially with the curving features of the shroud.
possibly my favorite part is how the surrounding ooze has the cast of oil- I'm not sure how you got that effect, but its really wonderful. When compared to the original, it's less ethereal and more grounded, warmer somehow- an interesting take!

Thanks a lot!
It was important to me to keep it recognisable without, as you observe, just reproducing a Giger!
I appreciate your comment! :)

Really liking this - especially maintaining your own style, but with the Giger aesthetic.
