okay, here it is, finally finished: my donkey-on-a-rowboat-piece (new genre, dex!) from this years zvokz demoparty.. sequel to last year's donkey-on-a-cliff-piece.. same guys, new location - pretty much like the party.

my biggest piece so far - canvas size is 426x240 to fit the parties full hd-bigscreen (300% = 1280x960); so, no resizing this year. looked hell great again.

don't pull it into pieces because of unoptimzed palette, perspective/lightning issues and the slightly unrealistic water, please. i know about these issues, but just want to call it done for now and focus on new projects. too long + jointless arms are intended.. just in case =)

underwater junkyard as as homage/farewell-present to my old honda.. dumped it in favour for this new turbo-charged sweetie, using the german cash for clunkers program.. same carbondioxid-exhaust, but double the horsepower - greenish palette to underline the enviromental character here =P

misc: none, no tv-interviews this year, i learned my lesson ;D

wip: www.piexeln.de/pics/tomic-donkeyboat_wip.gif (170 stages, large file! 3M)

reference: none, except for the bird (link)

p.s. skamocore: i *DO* hate speech bubbles =)

This is crazy - love the underwater cars 

disemq (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 12/14/2020 06:50

Neat work on the water.

Trigonomancer (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 8/7/2020 07:58

I really appreciate the semi geometric style on the details and a very good contrast between the surface and the sea. Mind if I """""steal""""" this pallete?

Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 9/17/2009 04:52

Hadn't seen this yet! Wow!

Your wips are hilarious great stuff just by themselves, too.

One thing I'd say: the donkey doesn't look like one, I thought it was a cow at first. At some stages it looked more donkeyish.

Levi (Level 1 Thug) @ 8/30/2009 10:22

at the risk of sounding overly scholared,

dude, wtf, awesomeXD

camlio (Level 1 Depressed) @ 8/29/2009 18:45

jeje, it is greaat

AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 8/29/2009 17:10

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 8/29/2009 02:16

thanks all.

@huegenay: judging from the working stages it must have been something around 60 hours.. over a period of one month.. i'm slow =)

@dex+ilkke: yepp, your right. i'll do an edit on the turtle face and geek/donkey.. asap =)


Yogurt (Level 6 Centaur) @ 8/28/2009 22:03

i like the whole background, and all that, but i much preffer the style of the cahracters in the older one.

exocet (Level 6 Major) @ 8/28/2009 11:14

Great pic! I love the water and the underwater part :)

Huegenay (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/27/2009 03:21

how long did you need?

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/27/2009 02:47

Roxxorz! The water is so lovely!

I could watch this all day.

Only crit is that the darkest index doesn't blend in so well with the rest of the colors, esp. on the donkey.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 8/26/2009 14:04

Heh heh..you just couldn't resist the Monkey Island in the background could you. The underwater scene came out great.


.:???:. (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 8/26/2009 13:20

Friggin awesome.

something like that would take me forever.

Huegenay (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/26/2009 09:24

TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 8/26/2009 07:22

Top top top.

dakael (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 8/26/2009 01:27

Arthurio (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/26/2009 01:20

kvetacek (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 8/26/2009 00:39

Wow, it's really great! :)

Fenne (Level 3 Stalker) @ 8/25/2009 07:03

Haha, I really laughed with the different birds in your WIP.
Lovely piece!

Justincrdibl (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 8/25/2009 06:37

Dude, this is really awesome!

jamon (Level 10 Operative) @ 8/25/2009 01:46

Nice work Tomic .... ;)

Hatch (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 8/24/2009 18:28

Seems like there are some yellows in your palette that could've been used in the bird beak and legs and would've looked better than the green. Nice regardless :D

Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 8/24/2009 17:00

great work! ^^ 

RollerKingdom (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 8/24/2009 15:27

OMG that's awesome :D gotta fav it! nice skills!

Jinn (Level 11 Cthulhu (The Call of Cthulhu)) @ 8/24/2009 14:06

{ That's the third biggest monkey head I've ever seen!

AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 8/24/2009 13:51

wonderful! i see you're getting into the animated previews like myself, hehe =D

while the black on the characters draws your eyes in i believe it's a bit too harsh and could be a tad lighter but still draw interest. also, the turtle's face is BLEH! =) great work.

and excellent, a new genre! i think i'll leave this one to you though, since you've done it so well =) keep it up!

Mykola (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 8/24/2009 13:46

dude if you only knew how glad I am to see this piece today. so refreshing, makes my rusty brain bubbling with ideas again. thank you

Jocher (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 8/24/2009 13:17
