painting progress

Another update on my digital painting. There are still 14 days left in the contest so I think I'm in good shape to finish it.

cgtalk challenge composition

This image combines all the individual characters sketches. I'm still not sure about those two characters outside of the main group, I may lose them to keep the composition nice and simple. The space ships in the background are still fairly rough, and I may blur them out so it looks like they're going really fast.

more inked character drawings

Here are the final two characters and sketches for the camp fire. My idea for the contest (the theme of which is human-alien interaction), is to show many species gathering together, sharing what little food and drink they have to create a hobo feast. The pots over the fire will show the various foods thrown together to create some sort of stew.

inked drawings (CGtalk art contest)

I did a few more pencil and ink drawings of my alien characters. I refined the costume designs and changed the characters a bit, to make them more diverse and interesting. I've still got two to go before I can composite the whole group together and start painting.

colour sketch

This is a quick colour sketch for the CGtalk art contest. I havn't added the characters because I'm still working on thier design and posing. There will also be lots of space craft flying in the top left corner. I added a little bit of texture over the stone and wood areas, and took the star field from a photo as well.
