Thread: Ikaah WIP

  1. #1

    Ikaah WIP

    Heres Ikaah, my monster in training ( or progress ), not sure if this is allowed.. because the image is being produced, for the most part in Painter 11, however the Sketch, and some textures were done in ArtRage, if I'm wrong at least I'll know for next time =D

    Looking for some serious critique as far as direction is concerned, kinda stuck on colours, and contemplating the posture, is it appropriate? realistic? or do you have a better idea in mind, I'm dying to hear them, please

    Update - Added Yellow tinge to stomach/torso, moulded some more values in, and introduced some light blue highlights, deeper purples in shadows to suggest and reinforce the fact that Ikaah is a worm and cylindrical (.. is that even a word?!) in shape..

    Thanks for looking

    Smoothed out forms a bit, introduced terrible looking eyes, and changed yellow torso/stomach to more of a green, still trying to suggest the cylindrical shape of Ikaah, having a lot of troubles.. finding myself in a bit of a block as far as finding where to go next is concerned..

    Strong critique is welcomed.

    Update : Refined eyes, added mouth, tooth and tongue..

    Still not 100% sure on his shape/posture atm, but am happy with the progress of the details.. tongue or no tongue? perhaps I should try a new mouth? thoughts?

    Are you really asking whether your *MONSTER* is realistic? :-) :-) :-)

    Not bad... you might check out the "Schlock Mercenary" comic; Sgt. Schlock is similarly shaped. Typical Schlock: www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20090318.html

    Kinda forgot about the whole 'take a screenshot' deal and ended up finishing!

    Update - Extended head/forehead, replaced eyes with more appropriate morbid typed eyes, added wormy stomach thingy (to reinforce the worm idea mentioned earlier), nostrils and other small details!

    Really happy with the texture I achieved on this one, it was what I was aiming to do, and I think I did well on that part, the painting itself, no so much.

    @yachris; by realistic I was referencing the posture, colours, and lighting, in the context of, if this monster was roaming around your bedroom floor, would the current posture, lighting and colours reflect that..

    Kinda' irrelevant now that it's finished, thanks for your comment
