-Yellow Wins- by Bluefley -Yellow Wins- by Bluefley

this is my submission to the speedpaint challenge I'll be doing for 2d artist magazine. A tutorial will accompany this in next month's issue.

About 3h30h straight with a few breaks. After work doodle!

The topic was "It was a long way up but they had to continue climbing".

These guys are supposed to be villagers beeing attacked by the lava monsters. Sometimes the lava overflow and the distracted villagers find themselves in some bad situations, fighting for their life.

I think the guy at the bottom is done for ;(

Hope you like!

The cliffs are good, and the poses on the human figures are good. However, the lava monsters are hard to read; before I read the caption, I thought the lava monsters were baskets of flowers, or something like that.

Those appear to actually be baskets of flowers. The lava monsters are at the bottom of the picture, grabbing green's leg.

For some reason I see this Camus-ish view on Sisyphus here. With the sad nihilistic smiley on the winning side and all. But I'm probably just reading too much into it :P

(Addendum to my previous comment)

I don't think you need me to drool over your art, do you? You already know that you're good. But just in case--OMG IT'S SO GOOD LIEK I LUV IT LOL.

There, now I've covered all of my bases at the expense of a few brain cells. As an added bonus, the leetspeak will steal brain cells from anyone else that reads it. HA HA HA HA HA.
Heart-of-the-Sun Featured By Owner May 19, 2008

I love the frown on the yellow guy's pants, but what does even better is the split in the guy at the bottom's pants. Absolutely perfect! :+fav:

Neat ^^ .. I love the lighting effects you've done while it being a speedpainting :) .. also, the small details like the ripped up pants xD .. a very nice picture to study actually :P

Though I got confused by one thing.. why is there a sad smileyface on shirt of the guy above? ^^' .. ahwell, it's a nice detail as with other random stuff. good work! :D
ACID35 Featured By Owner May 15, 2008
nonsense, the guy on the bottom will SEEM dead to the guy on top. But later in the story when yellow shirt man is in trouble. The green shirt guy will save his life. And yellow dude will be like " I thought you were dead?" And the green guy will say, " Well i guess im lucky." But then we will find out that the green guy is actually in cahotes with the lava people. And he is the reason why the lava people seem to know thier every move. So the yellow guy will have to kill him by fighting the dude with a rock, and he will save the day. ( Pant, pant)

anyways thats what i think is going on in that picture. :)
