Alien Battle

This offering comes out of my reading an interesting article about generating ideas for creatures and machines by letting Photoshop make conglomerations of random shapes. Then you take the shapes and work them into something a bit more coherent. This above is my first attempt at this technique. The illustration art I admire is filled with titanic beings in perpetual violent conflict, with slashing talons, constricting tentacles, fiery blasts. This art, which is usually used for games like this one, is mind-blastingly complex and active. I want to rise above my dull compositions and fill my screens with this kind of killer action. This one's just a start.

Photoslash, 10" x 7", about a half hour of doodling, February 11, 2011.
