Sea Devil

This isn't for the contest, but I'm posting it anyway. He's for an art trade with a friend who's doing a sculpture for me. He's not aware of this gallery, so he'll still be surprised when we do the "unveiling" on the 19th. This guy is inspired by a Seadevil.

I really dig those subtle little tech bits that are hiding within this piece, and I like the sturdy base of the leading bone-shelf. Although there is dimension to be found in this drawing, it's a bit buried under the flatness of the overwhelmingly lateral perspective, I guess. This pic makes me think that if you pull in a coupluv colours, you might be better able to distinguish differences between elements and accentuate some of those interesting details that currently get a little lost in the soup of the nondescript. ;)

I love this piece. I disagree with William to some extent, in that I really enjoy getting up on it and staring at it to see some of the little nuances. I know it's just at screen res, but there's a lot of really cool and subtle textural stuff going on in there. I think it's a good thing when things get lost here and there, and move in and out of the space.

Great comments from both of you... of course. But I'm intrigued about the color thing. I'm tempted now to try to introduce gauche or watercolor. I trade the thing on Saturday, so if I'm gonna go for it I better act. Hrm.

Thanks guys.

[edit]Actually I just got some really great feedback from my roommate, who's a badass artist himself. I now have a direction to pull this thing together. I see exactly what you mean, William, and I'll resolve it. Not with color, but some better general form-building shading. My problem is I got too hung up on the details while sacrificing the bigger picture. Huge thanks again!
