View Full Version : Roberto Gomes - Abominable Snowman
03-02-2010, 02:56 PM
Hey guys!! I'm back to the threedy competitions and now I'll stay until the end! =D Great theme with great possibilities!
So, here's my concept for the snowman: researched a little about gorillas, polar bears and coalas...and here's the basic result!
The basic theme for the painting is "Abominable just in the outside": he'll be playing with his son, or with another animal...I'm thinking about it.
Anyway, hope you guys enjoy it!
Comments and crits are very welcome ;)

great start, I like the head that you've found ... maybe find something for the body, a detail, a particular thing for the body...

Alright, I got deeper into my concept, the theme now is:
"Like father, like son" haha
Just watch the drawing and you'll understand...at least I hope so =D
Comments and crits are very welcome!

Wow, you've already got the good mood, nice starting job, like your fur work and clouds.
This guy should definitly run with more speed! :haha:
About composition, I would test one or two diagonal foreground and each down corners (asymetrical snow piles), maybe just some left one, for more dynamic lines directing to the two guys, just a little suggestion, don't know if it'll help the work.
And maybe the guy could just be a little bit smaller for visibility (80% or 90%), he's crossing a bit too much with your snowman's arm, and it could make your snowman a littl' bit more impressive, but maybe you don't want him to be too impressive but more natural?
If you keep on this way, I can feel it's gonna be one of your good ones.
Keep on this nice working mood man and have fun with the trees!
I will keep an eye on this one. (Hiding behind a tree) (Just in case)

I just understood that it's the son, :D

Thanks for all who are saying something, it's great to see people are interested in my work =D
washka: I'll work on the composition, to make it look more like natural landscape, but also to let the viewer's sight walk around the entire picture ;) It was my decision to make the snowman look 'natural', I researched about gorillas, polar bears and coalas to make it ;) And...the hand is the thing I must NOT change cause, as you realized, the little one is his son, so the snowman is teaching him how to be abominable =D Thanks a lot fot the feedback!
babis1: Thanks buddy ;)
hardtrack: Great, I hope I won't dissapoint anyone =D
So...this is a WIP 3 and half: some progress on the trees, got a reliable way to depict them ;)

Okay people, here it is the final work: Like father, like son =]
Hope you'll enjoy it!

perhaps it could do with some focal blur on the closer trees but that might detract from the detail.. anyway lookin cool.:shout:

From last evolution, I like trees and son's face. Waaaa!

nice! but please, don't use the stock photoshop lensflare! build your own or downlad some photo... It's worsening your image a bit.. Keep it up!

Thanks for the feedback guys!
jaist: Living and learning =D I'll try to remove it, promised! Thanks a lot for your tip!!

i'm sorry, i didn't want to sound pushy. It's just that coming from a compositing background i get really annoyed by that kind of fake stuff, especially when i see a painting like yours that's full of nice details. try one of these:
Unfortunately i'm in dubai at the moment so i cannot search flickr, you'll find a lot of stuff there!

jaist: That's okay, I really appreciate your feedback, I have little experience on that digital painting stuff, so any help is very welcome =D Thanks!
