Here is my entry for Creature of the week
Update = I followed Maoi's advice and worked a little more on it. Thanks mate!
Blue Mountain Glider
"This peaceful creature lives high up in the mountains and glides around above the ground.
The fur keeps it warm when it is gliding about around the coldest parts and has soft organic bubbles under it so it simply bounces of any sharp stones or pillars if it should collide.
The "gliders" are held up by the thin "arms" that hold it like a tennis-net.
Because of it's peaceful nature sometimes birds rest on it and lost or tired travelers can jump up on it's back and ride it until they find a familiar spot again.
The Blue Mountain Glider is very quiet and could easily glide past you from behind without anyone noticing so it is a treat for mountain climbers to spot these creatures gliding around due to the fact that there only live around 2-4 Blue Mountain Gliders on one mountain."

yeah keep that stuff from corel painter up... they getting better with every piece.
your environments are great and i would love to see some more of them.
Looking great as always, lazy.
Very nice colours.
I wish there was more characters though. Do lots of them. They seem to be your weak point so work on it =)
I think adding a stronger and more easily noticeable light source might help. Right now they're just shaded and not really shaped.
Something odd happened to her jawline when you colored it digitally. In the pencil drawing it curves naturally, but it seems to have been cut short somehow in the digital painting. The shadow under her chin seems too dark as well.
I'd recommend going out and getting a figure drawing book by Hogarth or someone and learning the universal forms and structure of the body, rather than copying from photos, so you can invent your own figures more successfully.
Talk at you later. Keep drawing.
Im in a dry phase, not so much in the mood for drawing and much in school, i experimented with different things and here are 2 of them that turned out ok.
These where done pretty quickly, haven't had the patience recently to work to long on a piece.
designboot : Thanks! i'll keep that in mind
Nice colors! Some space and foreshortening issues, though. The guy seems to almost be sitting in front of his little shelter, rather than under it, and the way his legs come forward doesn't seem right. Great job on the surroundings, and again, nice rich colors.
Oh yeah, thanks for visiting my Thunder Beast thread!
Hey everyone, it's been a while.
Alot to do in school now, soon graduating, taking my drivers-license and all that so it's much going on.
Will devote more time to art again now when i can.
Im definatly not done with conceptart, im just starting.
Moai : thanks as always for your help.
Here's a quicky to get things rolling again, just something out of my head, a loner living in a well waiting for the plant to grow so he can climb out.
Congrats on graduating!!!!
The church is my fave!
A friend of mine gave me a tony ryder book, you might want to give it a try,
It becomes my instant bible in drawing!
Keep it up!
The Queen Is Not Amused!
Going for the messy feeling where i add detail only where necessary, kinda like Craig Mullins. Feel before detail.
Bard : Thanks in advance but i will graduate in about 1 and a half month, thanks for the comment mate, i'll check out the book you mentioned later.
I have been playing Earthbound/Mother 2 for the Super Nintendo, such an amazing and charming game, i felt so inspired to do a little Ness rendition with the original sprite as inspiration.
Smokey186 : Thanks for the crits, i actually am loose when i start, but i like it messy, so i go for that in the end.
For the "EOW 57 - An Underworld"
Similiar to the "The Kola Superdeep Borehole Project" where scientists attempted to drill as deep as possible into the earth's crust which started in 1970 and ended in 1989, the project was resumed in 2012 with far more interesting results than in the former attempt. After intensive drilling for months they stumbled into a hollow space with a cooler temperature, once they sent a team down into the hole the team at the surface got a mindblowing transmission.
"It's.....it's a tree..it is absolutely massive!!!"
Once the news spread it took the world by force, scientist's were scratching their heads trying to figure out a theory for the odd placement of this "tree", religious foundations refused to believe it at first and later on started to call the place "hell", "underworld" and started to quote old writings.
Until today the "Underworld" which it is called by the public is not solved yet but research is still under way.

nice..avoid photographs for now..copy masterdrawings or paintings form artists you like..they teach you more..
cool stuff here! especially like the loose painter pieces.
Another painter study meanwhile i wait for the next Creature of the Week. A painting by Anders Zorn, finally i found some brushes i like.
lema : Thanks mate, i am trying more and more to adapt to painter, made some great progress with the brushes in my latest attempt above.
Hey hey hey!! It's been a while, huh? These latest studies are really strong. The colors, values, and brushstrokes are all great. However, I have to ask, you aren't color-picking from photographs, are you? You'll learn a lot more about color and value if you just judge with your eyes, rather than color-picking. I only ask because the colors and values are so darn good!
It's nice talking to you again and seeing some art.
Study in painter! tried a pic with a dimmer light source, still waiting for the new creature of the week, but this is great training for me.
Moai : Hey mate! long time no see. Thanks for the feedback and yeah during these studies i have used the colorpicker on most of the colors, do the studies mainly to help me paint without the use of a scanned sketch first so i think about how i build it up meanwhile i worked on them, but of course i should refrain from using it so from now on no more colorpicker!, didn't use it on the one above either, tried a pic with a dimmer light source.
