Helzon, hey thanks man : )
Yeah I know what you mean about the colors... something is off... but I cant quite put my finger on it.
I like the grey version better too, to the point where I was considering making only grayscale entries. But what would be the point of that? This is a learning activity, and I'm here to learn, so better work on the colors harder and study up. This is a great activity, and I enjoy participating in it.
Besides... the gray version I think looks better because its reduced in size... the larger versions I have of it, I like less. Maybe the smaller version hides the errors better? ; P
I like you're entry as well, I like how the upper-right mechanical part is painted. I would like to have seen some stronger highlights in the creatures, and maybe a bit more hue variation, and something that pops them up more from their backgrounds in some areas, maybe more contrast, of values and hues. Congrats on you're T-Dome piece by the way : P
Again, great week. I love the highlights, texture and background of Dan's entry.
EDIT: thanks for the commets and vote Vigo : P

I voted for Fozzy, because he rendered that shit beautifully. You can almost smell the freshness.
I was kinda disappointed how little I was grossed out this round. The anal parasite round was severely disturbing, and I was hoping this round would capture the same disgusting magic. Don't get me wrong, great creatures all around. I was just hoping somebody was going to make me puke.
Dan, Mike and Form's were great and pretty gross. Dan's has a great stink fog look going on, and the creature looks gross and bloated. Mike's shit has a really gross consistency, but not one I associate with shit. And the swirls around him are a nice touch, but they don't really communicate stink to me, they seem kinda flowery. I love Form's anus-mouth, smeared with shit. And the buttcheeks are great too. It's dying for a background other than white, though.
AndrewLey, you had a very disturbing idea and I think if you'd illustrated it rather than just putting it in your description, you could've had a really strong piece. You could've at least shown the creature's tongue, so we had some idea what he was doing the violating with. I quite like the technique and execution of the piece, but there's a disparity between the description being really disturbing, and the illustration being pretty tame.
Oh yeah, and I'd like to say how I liked that bRØk3n_sPiRiT's concept was clear and obvious without even having to read the description. That's something I'd like to see more of, especially in my own pieces.
Just for you baby, just for you...the animal who produced this shit, had some stomach illness and feed the last week only on rooten fish...Originally Posted by 0kelvin
brokenspirit : No prob bro. I hear you when you say that this is a learning activity...and would add that there is some steepness to the learning curve. But in the end all of the feedback will make us better at our craft. BTW thanks for the kind words and crit on this week's COW and T-dome piece.... I appreciate that.
red : LOL....BTW...your real last name is Grandy isn't it...;P j/k.
Ding! BTW....like the new location you're in, Mike. I may just have to move there before I flippin' flat line.Originally Posted by Helzon

For me it was between [Dan] and Fozzy and while [Dan] had the better presentation I gave Fozzy my vote because his creature was much more unique.

//Hopes the next one smells better

I voted for Form because his creature is pretty damn cute (even though it eats shit) and the story behind it sounded like a great bedtime story... for unusual .. ehemm.. parents... with odd tastes.
I voted for brokenspirit this time. I kept going back to this piece everytime I checked the thread out. Great drawing.
