Hello! I made a creature design based on the available references -I couldn't resist rendering more than a sketch would need. The creature is called the Exiled Abomination. It is a fusion of sea horse and locust combined with mechanical parts. It sucks blood through the string in its tail, then stores it in the stomach. The iron in the blood is extracted and used to construct bullets.
CW: non-pornographic nudity, gore Hello! My alias is Vessels of Flesh and I am a 33 year old artist from Greece. I love body horror and weird creatures. My goal is to advance my career in illustration, with a dream of doing creature design. I seek feedback on which aspects of my work need improvement and what I should add to my portfolio. Thank you for your time and the opportunity to share my work. Sincerely yours, VoF
To be honest I am a bit sad I did not get to hear Karla's feedback on my work. I guess it was left out in the final editing? Still, lovely video and so many amazing submissions, this was so much fun~~~
Hi!!! This is my first time participating in an art contest because I knew that I wasn’t gonna win anyways and I never really got the chance to participate in one but now I think it’s time for me to step out of my comfort zone and be free with my art....anyway this is my submission....It’s really special to me because it’s the first time I let my hands do whatever they want and embrace my mistakes....At first, I wanted it to be perfect so that I’d at least win something but I’ve thought about it and winning didn’t really matter to me anymore...so yeah I just let lose with my art....enough babbling...anyway- My life has always been a fun one....good family, good grades, good friends. But then back in 2018 when I was 10, My mom passed away a week before my bday...then next my grandpa got sick and died a few days after my 11th bday....everything came crashing down...I lost sight of what my purpose was and what I wanted to do in life.....even worse, my dad changed....my dad wasn’t the best...he cheated on my mom with two other girls and had a baby with them then bragged about it to me...but i still loved him because after all, he was still my dad....but then after mom died, he started to pick on my looks like my acne and hair...I started to lose confidence....but then my teacher talked to me and it helped me let out all the sadness that I’ve been carrying for the past months....But of course, I was still sad....but then one day, I decided to pick up my pencil and make art again...It really helped me with my sadness....cliche isn’t it? But that’s what happened....I slowly learned that even when we were at the darkest point of our life, there is light...there is hope...there would always be someone there to help you find your way... I learned to smile even when I’m mad or sad because I knew that everything would be better in the future and that I shouldn’t let my emotions control what I do....Of course, It’s okay to cry....crying helped me let all that sadness out....So yeah that’s my story... Now I’m 13 trying to live the best of life....I’m trying the best I could to improve but here in the Philippines, Art supplies are limited.....and they are expensive....but I try my best to earn money to buy the things I need and fortunately, my family supports me. Anyway that’s all...I hope you like my art...It may not be the best, but I tried my best and worked really hard on it...Even if you like it just a little bit, that’s enough for me and sorry if the quality of the pic is bad😓✨✨
Here is my submission for this months art challenge. This movie is called “The Voyage” When I saw that the theme of the challenge was a “My Life Movie Poster” I knew exactly what I wanted to create. For the past year I’ve been working on creating a fantasy world filled with mermaids, harpies, sirens, pirates and more. My biggest problem is that I’m terrible at writing and coming up with stories, so I’ve contented myself with drawing one scene at a time, hoping that I’ll be able to tie the individual scene together down the road. This challenge has given me that opportunity to pull those fantasy pieces together into one movie! Thanks for checking out my submission. I hope you enjoy it. PS. Bonus points if you can spot the painter in the poster.
Hello @Jan D., First of all I want to say that I really like the idea for the monster. It is simple and creepy and I feel like I'd be scared to death if I ever came across this thing. I think there are two main issues with the painting. 1. The values feel kind of flat. I think that some light rays would help the entire work feel more real. It would also help you emphasize the parts of the image where you want the viewer to focus. 2. In terms of color the illustration feels close to being monochromatic. I'd add some subtle warm lights and cold shadows in different hues to the existing ones. 3. Adding some blurry details to the background (i.e. fish, bubbles, some parts of the bottom that are little bit brighter, etc.) would give us something to compare tentacle-man to, in terms of size and shape. Your work is really cool, keep it up!
Hello everyone! This is my first post here, it's an honor to meet you all. I decided to create a poster for Meat Jail, a gory horror film influenced by the likes of Hereditary, Hellraiser and The Witch. This (imaginary) movie and its poster focus on my experience with gender dysphoria and sex reassignment surgery, the multiple fears, uncertainties and pain that I have faced because of my transness. Thankfully this movie has a good ending, our heroine survives and lives to, maybe, film a sequel.
