Deep Dream Pillar

  • 0

I drew this a little earlier in the year. I wanted to draw something based on 'deep dreaming' imagery; it was a lot of fun and I'd like to do it again, but it could use some work. The structure to the left is supposed to be the focal point, leading up to the sky. I didn't wanna leave the space around it dark, so I added those vein-y looking tree things. Now I'm wondering if they should've been omitted in hindsight.

Any thoughts on how I could've made this better would be deeply appreciated. I know it's kinda weird / abstract looking.

A FanArt of Dahlia, since she's so ridiculous and a challenge outside of my comfort zone. And some DK & D!

Struggling to Improve (Character Portrait)

  • 0

Hey, newbie at conceptart here! Any help is appreciated :)

My art often ends up too flat and/or muddy, but whenever I try to remedy that I end up making an even bigger mess.

Take this recently-made character portrait as an example! I realized that the value range was too small and the character looked too flat (among a lot of other things), so I dabbled around in a feeble attempt to remedy this... the result is the mess that is the second pic.

Any and all critiques/paintovers are greatly appreciated -- I really want to improve on my rendering and coloring!

CHOW 472 Rorschach Wraith (wips)

Character of the Week #472
Rorschach Wraith
:right: Deadline - Monday, October 8th 8AM GMT:left:

Rorschach: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rorschach_test
Many are the tortured souls not allowed into the afterlife. For some crime or sin, or perhaps even a self-imposed punishment for a failure during life these dead are shackled to our world, unable to move on. They manifest as ghosts and shades, either raging at the living for their tormented existence, or helping those who need it in a desperate act of penance so that one day they may be allowed to be put to rest.

Optional: Use a Rorschach shape or ink blot / blob to inspire your design.
I have made some example ink shapes to use in the (optional) designing of your wraith (see link). I know a lot of these aren't true Rorschach shapes, but they are, by their nature, a very boring symmetrical shape, so am allowing more randomised blobs. You are more than welcome to create your own ( these are just watered down cheap black acrylic paint blown about with a straw, or just messy daubs.) If you use these, feel free to flip and rotate. You don't have to use the whole shape either, see examples below.
You can download various ink shapes I made from my deviantart page here: https://www.deviantart.com/gameofdol...catpath=scraps

Male or female ghost.

Chains / shackles or some instrument of binding.

Optional: Inspired by an ink blot.

The Rules:

- FINALS: Must post in finals thread before the deadline
- KNEES UP: Must show at least 3/4 of the character, from at least the knees up.
- FRONT VIEW: Must be able to see the front of design. No back views without a front.
- WIPS: Must show at least 2 work in progress shots either in the wips thread or finals thread.
- READABLE: Design must be readable, as in a 3D model could be made from your image.
- ONLY ONE: May only submit one entry. No multiple submissions.
- 3D: Must be originally created models, excluding primitives. 3D paint-overs permitted. If you choose to use 3D in whole or in part you must show a screenshot of the model in 3D software with final entry.
- UNACCEPTABLE: These are not permitted: Photo paint-overs, photobashing, pre-made or purchased 3D
models, rushed works/ rough sketches. PHOTO TEXTURES are allowed as long as they are suitably worked into the piece and not lazily dumped on top.
- NEW USERS: Must submit entries by 6pm GMT on due date, due to conceptart.org's moderation process:

- DESIGN: Design your character for the brief, not your personal fetish. Nudes without some design are not permitted.
- READ: Read through the threads; there may be answers to your questions already posted.
- FUN: Have fun!


Nature Mage

I've been working on a concept illustration for a nature-themed mage. I usually paint using cel-shading with a more cartoony style, so I'd love to get some feedback or critique on my attempt at a different style. Any critique is greatly appreciated!

Hi there. So this is a recent piece I've been puttering away at. It is still very much a work in progress, but I feel it is at a point where it could probably use a more detached eye. I would love to hear any feedback you have. Thank you for your time, have a great day.
