Subservience by Rahll Subservience by Rahll
Been playing Crysis 2, and also started reading some H.P. Lovecraft, so I've had squiddies on the mind. I needed to loosen up from client work, so this is sort of what I threw together. Didn't initially intend for it to turn into anything, but I had too much fun rendering the skin, so I finished it.

Also, I finally figured out a process I like for colorizing a black and white sketch/rendering. I might put together a tutorial for it to help everyone out. It's by no means perfect, but it worked great for me this time around.

More work real soon, I wont be waiting months between submissions from now on, rofl.

Just.. wow. I discovered some of your art today and it's simply mindblowing. I saw this Lovecraft-ish picture and i felt so awed i needed to leave a comment. Most art simply dosen't do Lovecraft justice.. But this.. this is just mindblowingly awesome. Keep this up, this is some extremely good work, and i'm not just blowing smoke.

its rather different from your usual style (character design instead of a scene) i really like it though. the overexposed, under contrasted (i dono how else to explain it) lighting is really effective. oh! soft light:)

What exactly do you mean when you say you "render the skin" or any other part of the image?

I wonder if grabbing stuff is complicated or not with those tentacle fingers. :O

Anyway, as usual, your stuff is badass. Love the little details on the skin like the popping veins and such.

Love the design you have going on this guy, I would say though that it would have been awesome to see some like, translucence on his face tentacles and whatnot, just see some of that light coming through. Awesome rendering on the different skin materials he's got though.

Also, would love to know how you go about colorizing a black and white, I prefer painting that way.
