Instagram Monster Scene Rough by soulburn3d Instagram Monster Scene Rough by soulburn3d
Had exactly 1 hour to do a painting on the weekend, so I quickly spat out this experiment (did an extra 30min the next day tightening a few things). Has a very Instagram-my look to it, which seems to be all the rage these days, although Instagram was not used, was done entirely using standard photoshop layering techniques. May write a quick tutorial on the subject sometime soon. Anyways, it's not the most original piece, but fun to paint when time at the computer is so limited and I needed to unwind in a creative manner.

Yep. Looks like War of the Worlds. :P

Or maybe that book series -- what was it called? The Tripods?

Really though, awesome picture. :3

Kind of reminded of the Impossibly Tall Creature from Stephen King's Mist. Great job.

Thanks. Yup, the mist was def an influence on the piece. Plus, I just like painting creatures with super long legs. See my "eyes" image in the gallery.

Nice. Yeah, watching tall things walking in the forests...there's something about that that blows my mind.

This is awesome, it reminds me of the tripods from Steven Spielberg's War of the Worlds (one of my favorite movies).

Glad you like it. I wasn't specifically going for the war of the world look, but there's no question it was a subconscious influence, both the Spielberg film (which I liked except the end), and all of the books and other adaptations over the years.

Excellent!!! I love the monochrome textures you've used here. You've really captured a moment, frozen it in time, and given us a glimpse of somewhere I don't know if I want to be. War of The Worlds or The Mist, I got a feeling whoever's on the ground there is BONED.

Sadly this is the biggest res I have, so it's not ideal for wallpaper. But glad you dig the image.

I think that sometime, you don't have to do "the most original piece" to share an image that has soul and that works :)

Glad you like it. Ya, when you have limited time, sometimes it's good to just have some visual fun and experiment. It can lead to other ideas that you can eventually wrap into something more original.

This is beautiful! (Thought it was a bunch of Big Zams for a second, lol). I love the design on the monsters, makes me wonder where they came from, and more importantly, where they're going and why.

Glad you like it. In some ways, they remind me a bit of the walkers from War of The Worlds, but overall it's just a series of shapes I like using for creatures, long spindly legs, and flat tops. Painted it too fast to spend too much time in creature design, but I think they convey good mood.

Absolutely. I hadn't thought about the WotW walkers! They're awesome, regardless. xD
