3D Creature Planets #20: Beautiful Grotesque!
08-20-2012, 06:01 AM
Challenge begins 12:00 am MONDAY 20th August
This months challenge, Beautiful Grotesque!
This months challenge is to take the human body and turn it into a beautiful grotesque form.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, as an artist we find beauty, curiosity and intrigue in nature in all its forms.
Artist like Leonardo was fascinated by Grotesque figures, which filled his sketch book. Modern artist Patricia Piccinini also takes the grotesque form as inspiration for her sculptures. H.R. Giger also uses and twists the human forms in his works.
As digital sculptors we often are called upon to create creatures which are grotesque and macabre, they may not be in an art gallery, but never the less - they are still works of art, made by a creative energy.
You can focus on a particular body part, bust or a full body, keeping it identifiable as a human form.
Heres a quote from Leonardo's biography -
Rules and guidelines:
odd or unnatural in shape, appearance, or character; fantastically ugly or absurd; bizarre.
Fantastic in the shaping and combination of forms.
Also it's a creature Planets stuff, so stick to the topic and any images of violence towards another human, animal will not be accepted! So beware! Keep it tasteful!
Must be identifiable as part of a human form
At least one concept and one work in progress image in the challenge thread
~ Front, 3/4 and close up shots in greyscale
~ Posed and textured beauty shot (grey scale or color)

~Challenge ends Monday 24th September
