Care-Taker

It's been awhile since i've had a chance to post! Here's an attempt to work on both a creature design and character design at the same time :)

Nice job! That tail could destroy someone if he got grumpy enough. I think the costume is great too, Im into those stripes. :D

The stripes on the clothing surprisingly makes the design of the creature flow so well with the figure.

Alright Davi, finally we see some of your skill. Awesome texture and lighting. Looking forward to more.

Creature and character in one piece, how sneaky ;D I like that the creature has no eyes, kinda disturbing and fascinating at the same time. And yes, I agree with all others: The stripes rock!

Yep cool to see some new stuff from you Davi :] The stripes do indeed work to bind them together like people mentioned, though the thing on the pole stands in high contrast with the rest of the shapes somehow. Not sure this is the place for crits, but I had a few and I know you appreciate them usually so :P

I'm not totally sure if the creature's leg at the back (the one we don't see) and the character do not intersect though, it seems they stand really close together. Same goes for the length of the humans legs, they're obscured by the creature but something tells me I should see his feet below the creatures body.

A cast shadow on the ground really helps to make the ground plane clear which might solve some of the above issues. It's also an opportunity to create more contrast up front versus less at the back, which would help to create a bit more depth in the piece too.

Anyway, keep 'em coming ;]

Just want to let ALL of you know that your stuff really keeps me going. I'm a lifelong monster lover and chronic doodler with ambitions to be a great artist. Sometimes I get so caught up in the daily grind I forget, you know, and all of your wonderful works draw me back toward my goals. Keep it creepy, guys! Thanks.

My favorite moments in this pic are: the very situation itself, and the whole hindquarters area of the creature.

... The decision to light this from the perspective of the viewer is also a curious aspect, as though the image was taken by a camera with a flash.

nice one davi :) do a triple threat char/creature/enviro on the next one ;)

Devin: I have never heard of this thing you speak of called "enviro", so i shall ignore it and never do one :O Hehe, kidding, Yeah I've actually been working them at work... maybe i'll have the guts to do them soon enough.

William: Thanks! Yeah the lighting just sort of found itself. I didn't think of it being camera-flash perspective until you mentioned it :)

Guido: your crits are always welcome. You have always given me fantastic advice. I'll try to go back into this piece in a bit after I get a break from it.

Eva: I would being lying if I said that your comments to me don't make me blush every time I see them. Thanks :)

David: Thanks man :)

Kel: I appreciate it! I've been looking at a lot of Persian and circus themed fashion lately, so it played a big influence into the character's design.

Brynn: Thanks :)
