November – Lunch Break Challenge Top Four:

by on Nov.30, 2014, under Fiddzy's Artwork, Studies & Sketches

November was a change of pace month. After spending the first four months of this challenge drawing primarily animal studies, and after coming out of October which contained quite a few sketches I’d sooner forget, I decided that I’ll spend a month away from the wildlife and instead concentrate on a bit of self indulgence sketching of some of my favourite fictional characters. Like normal I’ve included allot more than my top four, however two of these where drawn specifically to be included within the sets they are shown in below.

Naruto Shippuden - Team 8November Sketch 01 – Team 8

Following on directly from where I left off in October, my first batch of sketches once again looked the Naruto Team 8 characters of Kiba Inuzuka, Shino Aburame and Hinata Hyūga (who I left out last time due to her drawing having far too many mistakes). However this time I’ve attempted to draw their older Shippuden portrayals and am personally really pleased with the results, considering them my best Anime/Manga drawings to date. However I still feel that Hinata is the weakest of the three and as such I will be focusing on learning to accurately draw female characters allot more in the future, as for me drawing woman is a far greater challenge than drawing men for some reason.

GrootNovember Sketch 02 – Groot

(Here comes some ego rubbing) While it may not be 100% perfect I will admit that I am very proud of this Groot speed sketch. I absolutely love this character and his design and sketching him here was an absolute pleasure. This image also holds a special place because not only did it kick start this months trend of adding in small splashes of colour into each sketch but It also managed to smash (and still maintain at the time of posting) my Instagram “Like” record, a record coincidently held by my raccoon studies from way back in August. However it was not all smiles and sparkly pollen, I did attempt to post this sketch along with a drawing of baby Groot and Rocket Raccoon, however both sketches encountered issues giving me a firm reminder that there’s still lots to learn and ways to improve.

Godzilla'sNovember Sketch 03 – Godzilla’s

My final themed drawing set of the month was of these three Godzilla sketches, with each Godzilla representing one of his designs from the original three film era’s the Showa, Heisei and Millennium era’s. They where not intended to be colour studies, as such the little hints of colour where just their to help make them standout and have a bit more life in them. I quite enjoyed drawing these three as it allowed me to continue my character month theme whilst also incorporating a touch of animal/beast.

Red PandaNovember Sketch 04 – Red Panda

Speaking of animals this final sketch of a red panda was my only non fictional character illustration of the month and actually one of my all time favourites. Done as a bonus experimental piece one weekend this panda, drawn with ball point pens and office highlighters, is one of my first true colour studies done as part of this Lunch Break challenge and is another piece I really enjoyed drawing. It has also set the standard for next month where I once again intend to primarily look at animal anatomy studies.

Animal, Mineral, Vegetable?

by on May.17, 2011, under Aliens & Monsters, Character Design, Costume Design, Creature Design, Fiddzy's Artwork, Sentients

This whimsical pot clad creation came from a simple sketch drawn while thinking up new idea’s for future Calci golem designs (Bone, rubber, stone), and my own personal interest in the biology of the Portuguese man o’ war, a colonial organism made up of not one individual species, but several, known as zooids. It was this idea of a symbiotic relationship among two distinct species, as well as a species relationship with an external non-organic structure, as seen in my Calci golem designs, which lead to this alien oddity, the Klingting.

Terracotta Klingting

The Klingting is not one, but two drastically different species living in a symbiotic relationship that together form a single colonial organism. The two creatures that make up an individual Klingting are, the Kling, a bulbous fish like animal with two arm-like eye stalks, and the Ting, a green gelatinous slime mold decedent.

Both species survive together in a perfect state of mutualism. The Kling provides all the benefits of a complex organism, such as, sight, the ability to communicate and in the case of the Kling, sentience, all of which is shared through a neural bond between the two. It also provides the Ting with food in the form of its waste and a special sugar it excretes. The Ting in turn provides the Kling with a liquidity home, a means of terrestrial mobility, a boosted immune system and further protection from its ability to form inorganic shells. If separated both will eventually die, although the Kling can sometimes survive if it finds a body of suitable water.

The Klingting communicate with each other by drumming on their inorganic shells, hence their onomatopoetic name Klingting.

Jellyroom or Mushfish?

by on Oct.14, 2009, under Beasts, Creature Design, Environmental Designs, Fiddzy's Artwork, Landscapes

Nuu NulipNuu Nulip

The inspiration for the strange mushroomoid creature above came to me while redesigning the Mulood fungus monster from the post below, “Danger Trespassers Will Be Consumed”. However unlike the mobile Mulood, for this creature design I wondered what a static carnivorous mushroom might look like. The outcome was the Nuu Nulip, a strange cross between a mushroom, a jellyfish and a table lamp. Luring in its prey with its bright luminous cap, then snagging it with its stinging jellyfish like tentacles and adsorbing its fluids till its nothing more than a lifeless husk. Similarly to my last piece, the Nuu Nulip was a completely digital creation developed entirely by the skills picked up from its forbearer’s creation.

The Poala of Prema Zan:

Poala SentinelA Poala sentinel riding its Quadclaw Walker

Designed to be a truly alien race the Poalaare a species of sentient telepathic crystalline lifeforms. Able to create organic nano robots fully under their control. The Poala use this natural asset to build their technology and expand their telepathic powers for which they use to communicate, with both organics and machines. Naturally slow moving at inches a day, they further use their mental powers to control their technology in combination with their nano’s, utilising special robotic walkers known as Quadclaw Walkers to traverse vast distances at speeds considered the norm by most other species. While they have complete mastery over computers an extremely rare few can use their powers on organics, luckily the most an average Poala can accomplish is to read peoples minds, but only with considerable concentration.

Prema ZanThe Poala on Prema Zan

In addition to designing the PoalaI also wanted to design their homeworld, Prema Zan, a rocky world exposed to the vacuum of space, portraying another trait the Poala possess. Inspired by the new concept of dwarf planets (Plutoids), I decided to base the design of Prema Zan on the real world dwarf planet Ceres, a dwarf planet found in our solar systems asteroid belt. Stylistically I took a slightly more cartoony approach with these artworks.
