A harmless creature from the depths of hell just looking for love. Reference: I never traced, I used the lasso tool to get the shapes as close as I could.

oh haha, silly me. I dont read.

Hulio-G (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/17/2008 18:05
o.O This was last years, what are you talking about? Read the date.

Chaos Tayoko (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 10/17/2008 17:38
Why was this submitted to the weekly challenge?

What point of "it's not a trace" don't you understand? It's almost as if you deliberately avoid my links just to get someone angry. It's not a question of "even if you didn't trace it", simply because i have screenshots of the process and i already showed you the earliest one which you're ignoring for some reason. Listen, you're no detective and are failing to prove anything because you're telling me things I already know. You're trying to act as if I'm trying to hide anything, absolutely not. You failed to "expose" anyone if that was you're intention. Stop being ignorant and read some posts. Count 15 posts down you'll clearly see i mentioned that reference at (11/4/2007 9:58:06 AM) Almost 5 hours before before Voxel posted (04 November 2007 at 2:32pm). A trace and reference are two different definitions and for you to keep insisting I traced after I told you I didnt and then to ignore my first sign of evidence is a straight up insult and you should just stop posting if you're just trying to stur up trouble. Untill then i'll edit the description to include the reference (you could have just suggested this instead of going off on a rant about some bs).

Tracing ones own work is fine because it is ones own work.
Even if you didn't trace it, you didn't mention the reference, and so imply that it is all your work when that is not the case.

Hulio-G (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/7/2007 14:47
It's true I dont have much of an imagination but whats wrong with using sketches as references? I see Fool and them do it all the time. Whether he's sketching the drawing himself or using real objects as guidelines for his work. If I were to make my own drawing then hell yeah I'd trace it because it belongs to me. But I have too much pride to trace someone elses sketch and it's not as challanging either. I have multiple screens of the process, if one isn't enough. A zombie is one who is revived from the dead. This creature came from the depths of hell. The one thing that would cut him off from being a zombie is that he didnt respond in a mechnical or apathetic way, which by looking at the piece who is to know? Also if you took a look at some of the other entries some look absolutly nothing like zombies either. I mean seriously, I saw a robot and a dancing banana.

Beautifully rendered, you've obviously got pixel skills, just a pity you didn't apply them to something more imaginative than a trace.

Also, not a zombie by any stretch of the imagination.

nicely done, g/j

Shaper (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 11/5/2007 08:31
HELLO blue, nice nuance looks pretty cool. love it :>

Atum (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/4/2007 20:14
wow, this is a winner right here!!

Hulio-G (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/4/2007 17:26
I updated the eyes and teeth a second time. Then when I look back at the old ones it's like "what were you thinking?".

Fuzzyleaves (Level 5 Detective) @ 11/4/2007 16:37
:p thats so awesome! I thought it was going to bad, because of the preview!

AtomicMushroom (Level 4 Button Man) @ 11/4/2007 16:20
I actually like the eyes and teeth. Great!

SimplyComplex (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/4/2007 14:44
A Darkling maybe from the Darkness? Pretty good, but the left elbow seems a bit sharp to me.

Doomcreator0 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 11/4/2007 13:32
Same with me, however the eyes and teeth don't seem to go with the rest of the body

What skeddles said.

B_j0k3r0 (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 11/4/2007 13:20
hahahah skeddles, same thouths here ^^.. awesome work.

Hulio-G (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/4/2007 09:58
Lmao @ skeddles. Thanks for the crits everyone, I just submited an edit with the eyes and teeth(not much here) again. I was interested in entering a contest for once. So I saw that zombie thread and participated, I looked around the net for any zombie like creatures and I came upon this: I figured it has some zombie like qualties. But if anyone has read Beowulf they know Grendal is a demon from hell. I guess you can say it still fits in the category of demonic/devilish/beasts from the undead.

skeddles (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 11/4/2007 08:21
Holy crap! I was looking at the preveiw, and like , oh god, another noob. But ya, definately not.

greenraven (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 11/4/2007 07:45
Looking pretty sweet.

But last I checked Grendel was a nightmarish beast and not a zombie.

spartan_117 (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 11/4/2007 04:54
the teeth are ok, i just find the eyes a little flat and distracting.

Reo (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 11/4/2007 04:15
The eyes and teeths are the only downfalls!

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/4/2007 04:11
this is a zombie?

spartan_117 (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 11/4/2007 02:21
the eyes don't seem to blend, otherwise, good job.
