The beast whirled around, the piercing shriek ringing from what could be called its chest. It's clawed foot slammed into the wall, pieces of chipped plaster tumbling to the ground. I slowly moved directly into its line of sight, I could feel the red eyes blazing into me, the sight of them caused my breath to catch in my throat. I heard the other hunter shuffling behind me, well hidden behind the pile of rocks, waiting. Nearly perfect as the beast followed my movement, his moment would come soon, and hopefully that moment would not also be my last...
First time using Painter 11. This was a learning process and I am so glad I finally finished it, as fun as it was I'm a little tired of working on this one, hehe. Entry for the 9 Contest. He we have some kind of machine-beasty hunting our little sack-warriors. Little does he know he is going to turn into the hunted.
My beasty is made up of various bits and pieces, some are just scrap metal formed into shapes or bent, stuck on, what-have-you, some nuts and bolts, a skull of some long-dead animal, lights for eyes and running down the spine. Spine is made of a metal coated flexible cord, with some blades and sharp bits attatched. There is some sacking material, much like what the humanoid characters are made of, that runs from its throat to its abdomen, held on but scrap metal ribs and various wires.
He also has a 'skinned' stuffed rabbit pulled over the skull. Kind of a wolf in sheep's clothing idea. Although I'm not sure he's fooling anybody.
**EDIT: Okay, we're at the final version. I finally got Photoshop to work on my computer so I could save a good-looking version at a smaller size. **
And no, I haven't had the chance to see the movie yet.
***NOTE TO SHANE ACKER
There were many entries that could have just as easily made the top 25. If you get a chance and could look through some of the other entries, I am sure those artists would appreciate any feedback you could provide. Thank you for taking time out of your surely busy schedule to judge this contest.
