Re: thespaceinvader sprites: current, animals

Nice serpent... though I'm not sure what that light green thing on *his* right is... it seems someone has taken a blob of green jelly and dropped it right next to him. Is it a fin? My beloved flatworm idea manifest? :)

Re: Sea Serpent?

Dang, I didn't know there already was one. Good practice and all I suppose... It think I'll try my hand at something a bit more humanoid... a merman hunter/fighter (I looked around more thouroughly this time, and I don't think there is one, but PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong). Since I suck at drawin...

Re: What are you reading right now?

IIRC it's all the battle. There might be interlude chapters though... blast can't recall.

ATM I'm reading: The Shadow of the Torturer by Gene Wolfe. Good stuff...

Voila. Scales via a bumpmap because I'm lazy.

Re: Art for "Fool's Errand"

Hmm no commentary - seems odd, considering your view counts are quite high... but I'll say that they look very nice, and I'll keep an eye on your thread - you seem to have a knack for frankensteining.

Re: Sea Serpent?

The light sources are the two big arrow things that are kinda hard to see... I'll fix that next time. The shading might have seemed odd because it lacked highlights - that's fixed at least.

Re: Sea Serpent?

Well, I just ran with what I had before you posted, Turuk, though you do raise a nice point about the head...

Here's a semi-shaded version.

Re: Sea Serpent?

Here's the version with some limbs.

@Turuk: indeed, the side fins will remain small.
@Ski: did what you said, and IMO it looks better. Thanks.

Re: Sea Serpent?

Here's an inked version (no line width yet though, all the same). I had to sit down and think about how it would move, and decided that it would be cool for it to swim like a Flatworm, hence the big droopy fins along the sides. So, how is it?

Re: Sea Serpent?

Seeing as how Kitty has a better gryphon portrait, I think I'll ditch this and maybe take a shot at another monster instead - the Sea Serpent. EDIT: Sketch.

Re: Gryphon Portrait: a pose that might actually work

Right on all accounts Turuk, thank you. I think I fixed all the issues you brought up. I also did a bunch of other stuff... ignore that blob to his right. It may become some texturing for his chest eventually, but not now. Oh, and the right wing's gotten a LOT bigger - it should be somewhat bigger, ...

Re: thespaceinvader's portraits - current, Dwarves

That drake that was poking him in the crotch earlier? I do see his eyes as directed differently (as you indicate), though I can't put my finger on why.

Anyway, I reworked the lower half (or third, I suppose) of the gryphon. Does it look nice :) ? I thought it looked very unbalanced and so on when I flipped it a few weeks ago, but I was buried in work for a while.

Re: Some sketches

I suspect that's a bit too dynamic for a portrait, but it looks sweet. I just love the mongol-y feel. Regardless of it's used, art is its own reward, etc.

Re: thespaceinvader's portraits - current, Dwarves

Sorry to be a bit late, but I think the way the wings are set up adds to the "chicken" effect. The wings of large birds of prey sort of cross down over the rump... I'll draw what I mean when I have more time.
