washka Ghost Town

Let's start this one with some old sketch I did three years ago.
You can help me by choosing three ghost from those.

There won't be a lot of colors for this one, dark and gloooomy!

Dude; I love the atmosphering you're setting up. It's really weird, and very spooky I also like the literal appreciation for the term, "Ghost Town". That's inspired bro.

Anyway, ghost votes: I like
no.5
no.10
no.8
no.2

Those guys definitely stand out to me. All of 'em have character though - you've got quite a style! Keep it up man - wanna see ya at the finish line!

Glub!

Thanks, dark-blast and VinsanityV20 for comm's, your ghost vote will help me a lot for the selection.
A friend of me voted (3,5 and 10)
So with your votes now we've got:
2:+2
3:+3
5:+2
6:+1
8:+2
9:+1
10:+2
11:+1
Now voting time is finished, number 3 ghost is THE winner followed by 2-5-8-10 second ones, and the third category ones are 6-9-11.
In fact I need 7 ghost so numbers 3,2,5,8,10,6,11 are now choosen! Yiiihaa!
Thanks for participating in this inner competition with no prizes but a lot of fun and more soon.

VinsanityV20, litteral is fitting, but from now there will be two images: one with the 7 ghosts (black and white and some little color touch, it'll be a "funny" one), and the second one will my colors work. This last one is even more litteral because the city itself is a ghost. WOoOoo!

About the WIP, so here's the color construction of the landscape, my perspective correction...
In fact this perspective correction was a big lost of time because I didn't liked the result of "the good perspective one", so I restarted my work from an older "wrong perspective one" that I tried to correct a bit. I'm stupid I should have started my work with perspective lines. You can even beat me for that!
The last one is my actual colors one, I'm sure I'll continue to details on this one and add some stuuf but I won't touch/change more the global composition again. I decided to fix it (the composition) with fast hard glue and chains, yeah!
No! Don't even think about it! Maybe I should add some random undisable frozing traps...Just in case.

blub

Thanks for comm's chris_solo!
Yes, that's the way I wanted to do it, "kinda traditional", just two brushes and lot's of colors.
Hey man, what's up? I'm sad you're not onto the comp' I feel a bit lonely here , (just like a ghost), so where have you been lonely soldier?

Here are some more WIP, color test, details, seems it's nicely going to some underwater mood, but nothing fixed yet. Now we're entering last stage, the final blast off!

hahaha!! I think trying to make beautiful things ... I look...others, I invent future ideas.
I participate in a mini challenge on Gameartisans, but I'm not going to end ... compete with the top end of the sculptors gave no chance for worms like me
anyway I finished my model but I don't present for the final.
so I look at the competition here on the challenge game character is really successful, projects are really interesting!!

see you washka

Good ideas can help you to make beautifull things. You've just given me one.
It's hard to compete against pro, and they're quite good on gameartisans...
Some sick monsters there. o_O
But, I like this attitude, and hey, that's how you can improve, no? I'll go look at your thread.
So the game character challenge is good? I've missed that, I'll go look for it too.
By the way, do you think there will be a dominance war this year?
[Edit]
Just been to GA, I don't know your nickname there, and I've seen DWV is coming soon!
Ooooh yeaaah!
Hey chris_solo Will you be on "da big war comp"?
If you are, I hope we'll be in the same "first line pushing squad", maybe I could watch your back, and we would kill them all, even da big masters!
Just another idea.

Hello again

So, I had some interesting idea, and I'll try something else while I still got some more time. Maybe I won't finish what I wanted to do, but I can't waste VinsanityV20's interesting ghost mood reference stuff, I got too much inspiration from it. Photos comes from michaeljohngrist
There will be 4 evolutive steps using reference photos I've already choosen, then maybe one ore more detailing/fix steps.
I'll try to post those steps each 2-3 hours, black and white.
Here's the first step, this thing is a city:
