Here we go!
Practice, practice and MORE practice..
Hey! I just wanted to say, that I liked your scetched wip a lot better than the final coloured one.
The characters are just so more likable. Small details such as the rounded, drunkard, bubble nose of the commander etc.
I like the texture work a lot. The smooth clothing and the way you changed the kraken's tentacles.
Hm. I think this special type of artstyle does only work if combined with a message ore something funny. The image seems to be missing that spark unfortunally...
Killer work guys. Amazing range of styles. Anthis got my vote for that amazing story telling ability and beautiful painting. c-rallis and smuli close second.
Voted smuli. Nice concept. My only comment is that the kraken should be presented in a more elaborate detail.
Great stuff! Well done guys!
@Niam. Interesting concept. However there are some anatomy and perspective problems. Lacks of depth.
@Templar101. Seems a bit hasty. Needs more polishing. Sea is a bit flat.
@xLouiseax. Kraken looks like a giant octopus. I'm sure you can do better if you let your imagination run free. Not much action.
@warburton. Nice try. Although the characters are a bit stiff. Lacks of freshness.
@c-rallis. Needs more polishing. Lacks of depth. Colours are a bit flat.
@smuli. Nice piece. There are some anatomy problems and the Kraken is a bit confusing. Tentacle looks more like snakeskin
@Anthis. Nice and clear entry. The drowning man helps to understand the size of the beast. Although it needs more contrast.
@onez. I liked the penciled WIP more. Colours are a bit flat. Interesting concept.
@CountBlackula. I bet you can do more than that. That's an interesting approach though. Lacks of depth and perspective and colours are not interesting.
So, since I can't vote myself ... I'll give my vote to Anthis.
Don't mean to be picky. Just my 2 cents.
Nice set of entries. If I could combine C-Rallis and Anthis I would have my fave! Great work folks!
