Black Pudding for Paizo by MichaelJaecks Black Pudding for Paizo by MichaelJaecks
You've gotta love animated monster goo. Black Pudding I painted for the Paizo Pathfinder Beastiary.

In Soviet Pathfinder, pudding eats you.

Now I'm in the mood for J-E-L-L-O. I bet this jello eats you instead of the other way around.

isn't black pudding a type of sausage made out of blood or something? It reminds me of the goo thing from cowboy Bebob. the whole crew was almost wiped out by just one. hate to be in a room full of them. Very chilling.

Thanks! Yes, there is a food called 'black pudding.' But, there is also a sort of classic fantasy RPG monster known as the 'Black Pudding' and that's what this is. Thanks again for the comments.

sure thing. but if you think about it, it does attack adventurers so it COULD be made out of blood too! lol

Great stuff.

Its hard to make these silly things look awesome. You pulled it of though it has a sense of weight to it and looks well nasty.

cheers,

So what do you work in? PS? How about a tablet?
I am trying to get my cintiq going, but I just don't have the space right now.

Hey there. Yeah, I work in PS, CS4. If you have a Cintiq, but not the space, I'd jettison whatever occupies the area where you want to install the Cintiq, because it's brilliant. ;) No, but seriously, I don't know what I ever did without one. I have the smaller one that you can hold on your lap, but am looking to upgrade to the big one soon.

Thats the one I have. The smaller one. But all my stuff is on a laptop, and I HATE to have to turn it on and off any time I need it. BUT, I will figure something out. Most of my work is in AI though, so the mouse still works well.lol

I have a simillar set up, but keep my Cintiq attached. It is a bit of a pain to dismantle the whole thing if I want to move the laptop, but you do whatchoo gotta do. Someday I will have a big fat iMac and the big huge Cintiq and perhaps a Laz-y-boy to sit in and just draw every waking hour and never leave the house. ;)

lol. I just did it. Hooked it up to an imac, and will keep that set up for my drawing station. laptop will still be teh workhorse, but already playing with the brushed in AI and LOVE it. I can see going paperless soon!

I just wish I could "paint" like you and others. I just am stuck in vector. But for teh editorial stuff I do, it actually works.

Cool!

As far as like ';painting'...I was a hack when I first bought an intuos in 2006, seriously. It was like I bought a 300 dollar digital coloring book. But, I put away the paper, pencils and paint, and stuck with it. Eventually I got better. I participated in many rounds of Creature of the Week on CA.org back then. Having a routine place to go back to again and again and again was really helpful to me. Not only for just the actual skill building I was doing by working, but also because I had the same regular crew of folks to go back to for feedback.

As far as vector goes... that stuff is a real mystery to me. I'd love to sit down and teach myself many more skills (AI, ZBrush 3, Maya, Painter, etc etc etc) but that takes a chunk of time out of the hours I have to spend on work-work. And there's never enough hours in the day for that! So I focus on what I do relatively well and try to build my work that way.

I'm sure now that you've got the Cintiq up and running, you'll find many ways to incorporate it in your own work. The amount of control you get over an intuos or a mouse really increases the work flow, precision, everything. Have fun with it!

I love how there seems to be a structure underneath the goo, and I love how I can't tell if it's native to the goo or if it was absorbed from some other unlucky critters.

Thank yee! That's an interesting comment, thank you. I did try to give it form, but of an ambiguous nature. I thought a lot about surrealist, biomorphic shapes in both painting and sculpture while doing this one. Yves Tanguy, Jean Arp, Henry Moore to an extent. Of course Salvador Dali...I wanted it to be more than a blob, but not to a huge extent.

I have to say, it is gross looking. And I wouldn't want to run into that in a dungeon or miss my saving throw. Nice work.
