Things are looking good, I'm seeing some of the best work in the illustration activity so far. I'll be leaving comments on these in a couple of hours, so anyone who needs the time, you've got it. I also will be directing a film in the next couple of weeks, and might need someone to cover the activities. . .so if you think you're up for the challenge, drop me a pm.
Ok, Here we go with the first part. I'm just throwing out suggestions. . .take what you want and move on to the final work- it must be in color.
Panzermensh- take the critics to the raptors in the foreground, I'd also like to see the planes closer.
Dogfood- no comments, looks good. . .a cleaner sketch though would be easier to read, as it gets lost around the riders.
Dagreengo- great idea, very creative- not sure who well it covers the topic, I want to see it finished however, maybe if you incorporated more of the topic elements into it, either case- finish.
Ancient Kitten- nice, and you're right about the character at the bottem right and moving him closer.
Bojee- I like the idea of the second one more, although both work very well, but I'm not to sure about the composition. . .I would go with the flying.
coco- I'd place the dino a little further back, midground, and place elements in the foreground
dan1989- looks good, need to see better thumbs to give an opinion.
I hope to see great work in a week.
Were you thinking something more like this:
That middle bar (behind tank & rex, in front of mountains) are trees.
I made this up last night after lookin at my peice. It will change more, I'm thinking of reducing the T-Rex, pushing him back a bit further, maybe even have him crashing through the trees, adding in another tank, some soldiers, blah blah blah. This photo is also missing the birds/planes in the background. Oh and the sun has been moved down, for a more 'sunset' sky.
Rick- Simple color version of the first, I'll see about the second one.
Oh, man... I totaly missed the assignment by like 3 days, and my sketch is only half finished. is it alright I I still turn in the ink and color one?
RaneValderez- yeah, it will be ok, and if you pm your sketch to me I'll give you comments and such.
Bojee- looking good, keep in mind-only one finished piece a person. I'd still like to see the other one worked up however.
coco- you pretty much are going where I'd suggest based on your own comments, looking good.
Haha, going to need a slight extension on mine. I completely forgot, but I'm going to be out of town for over a week, without my computer. So no chance to finish this one on time. Crap.
That's fine coco, I'd love to see you finish this. . .but remember the rules say you can't post here after a deadline, just a reminder. Have fun out of town and be safe.
As per request.
I didn't come up with an actual title (though was contemplating Hairy Knuckled Tales, Scary, But Unlikely Stories, Prehistoric Kitchen Patrol, or some such). I got a lot of great help over in the Sketch/WiP thread, though, and would like to thank all those folks.
dogfood- Your piece turned out great,blows mine out of the water, one of the best pieces I've seen from you, it'd be fun to see you take it just a tad further cause this could be a great portfolio piece,you might be burnt out on it by now but maybe at a later date. One of the things I thought that might make it stronger was if you bumped up the values, talk is cheap so I decided to show you what I was talking about, I'm sure you could do a much better job yourself. Again smoking piece, inspires me to try harder next time.
Glad you liked it, always funny messing with someone else's piece, it's still all you, I just messed with the levels. Great job again.
Just a reminder folks- deadline for this is monday night at midnight (or whenever I feel like it's time, which will probably be after midnight. . .so count your blessings) anyway, don't get scared off by the pics already shown I hope to see many more from all of you.
Not from me, though. Sorry, i couldn't make it work the way i wanted to in the time i had. I think i tried to take on more than i could handle with this one.
yeah,well,price indicates it's a high class pulp magazine.

Carnifex- That's Hilarious, I like it.
Hello, I saw this recently and found it intresting so I decided to take part in this
Did this in painter, couple of hours probably, I did one thing that I shouldn't have done, I puzzled together a composition pic from refs and ... rougly traced I didn't use it to much, I only used it rougly at the beginning.
I kinda like the dinosaurs but the guys in the foreground suck
Well enough babbling here's the pic:

aha dang i missed the due dates... heh i guess hop onto the next one..
crazy good stuff by the way. i esspecially like dogfoods.. xD
Skuli- nice pic, my major problem is composition- the two t-rexes at the top are where you lose it, they're cut off at the neck which is a bad idea to cut figures at major joints (neck,elbows,waist,wrists,etc.) so it looks like the heads have no bodies.
Carnifex-The time magazine cover is a great idea, very creative- you need to work on your rendering, very scribble like- I know you switched from your original idea and probably rushed, but practice pencil work from dark to light, would have helped a lot. Also, those guns bother me- it's ok to make straight lines.
dogfood- I love this image, it was great to see it develop. I agree with Bojee on the values issue but I think this is the best I've seen from you. Look forward to more.
Bojee- at first i wasn't sure about the style, felt real choppy and undefined- but to be honest the more i looked at them the more they grew on me. The enemy ace pic works for me more then the amazing stories- i'd like to see more refined character there, it's a little lost.

wow damnit! a few days ago i just read a twisted version of wonderland by someone and now you come up with this topic! the world's gone mad! everyone has a collective mind! great topic!
yeah i went in abit fast with the rendering,probably too fast for my own good.it's been pointed out by others already that i need to stretch the values and follow the form. thanx again.
oh yeah,and bout the guns: i never use a ruler,so that's perhaps the problem.
Rick: In order to redeem myself after the undead-mage-thing... I'm gonna have to join your activity this time!
this sounds like a fun one bet im gonna go with the flow and do tha thing
is it alowed using pencil wich means grayscale?

Anders89- you can use greyscale, pencil, ink, etc.
dCepT- you will be forgiven, and all will once be right in the universe again.
Carnifex- it's ok to use a ruler . . .rulers are our friends.
Just a note - you might want to add greyscale in the description. I, for one, was sure it wasn't on from that description. I should be able to whip something out for this one.
One more question, so that everything's nice and clear. New post so that my question doesn't get missed, since I posted last. Is this more of a concept piece ("character design"), or are these to be finished illustrations (funky poses, background, etc.)?
thanks for the comment Rick, I see that it fucks up the composition, two heads more detailed than anything else in there fucking it up they were originally thought as a ..part of a frame or sum like that, bad idea
