BA- Minotaur by ParisAlleyne BA- Minotaur by ParisAlleyne
This is for this week's :iconbattle-artist:
Subject is the Minotaur

Took a big gamble here with this one, I coloured it the way I usually do and was fairly happy with it, but instead I'm using this version after having played with some settings and layer. The gamble was doing this though I'm going against such a formidable opponent

Let me know your opinion
Can you name all the creatures?

Sweet, I thought the hydra was going to be smaller though. Those are pretty nice inks, btw.

damn dude all hell is breaking loose! I'm feeling the pic but I'm not too sure what that shape along the top is suppose to be.

thanks, it's supposed to be smoke, it doesn't translate as well in colour as it does in inks
I'm not entirely sure how to colour it yet

oh okay it's smoke, yea that makes sense. Well in my opinion i wouldnt have so much solid black on the smoke, it's overpowering the focal point of your illustration.

yeah I wasn't sure whether to take such a gamble with the colour
and I hope I've a reputation enough for my opponent to go all out too

and i agree with tuskat...that cerberus takes the spotlight here...what could help is having the bg elements more faded back with less intensity of color to create atmospheric perspecitve..still a goood piece!

I thought that he was saturated enough not to steal attention, I guess I didn't push him back enough
