Born8th - Sea Creatures - Justakiss

Hi everyone !

I'll take part in my first challenge. Do not hesitate to post comments !

First of all, some concepts :


My point of view over each of those sketches :
1 : not really scary
2 : we're not in SpongeBob, aren't we ?...
3 : looks like a worm. Teeth and sharp spikes are quiet interesting
4 : tail is ok, but tongue seems strange for a water creature
5 : quiet good but need some corrections

So, this is my starting sketch for coloring.


Monster is mixed with toad (arms and head), shark (mouth and teeth) and eel (tail).
Swimmer is for scale and for having a second point of interest.

Now I'll start coloring.
My tools are The Gimp and MyPaint.

Flat colors

Hi there.

So this is an update with first colors.


I added a right and left view too.
Well, I'm not sure but the body looks much like a toad in right view rather than the final sketch... Anyway, I'll continue that way.

I enlarged the frame on top because I want to draw some rays to shine down on the creature.

Now let's go for shading and lighting !

nice concept, if going to ink it I suggest on the outer line/border make it a little thinner, when you do that the subject as a whole pop and the linner line look great in detail.

Hi all.

Thanks washka and M_Cederstrom for your comments.

Here is the shading version.
As advised, I tried to have thinner outer lines for the swimmer than the monster. So the swimmer looks slimmer and smaller than the creature.



Due date approaching, so I have to hurry to post my final entry !
See you soon.

Just one question (it's the first time I take part on a challenge here) :

where should the final entry be posted : in my own thread or in the "Final Entry - Sea Creature" thread created by BiG ToE-3DT ?
