LIFE colossus Mother Moth by OttBettina LIFE colossus Mother Moth by OttBettina
ottbettina.com

Toxic female moth.
Most parts of her body are toxic as well as the orange hair that fall off by contact and poison the air around them.
She uses her claws and tentacles for near range attacks. She carries her eggs on her lower body. If she is in danger the eggs usually hatch and the caterpillars will attack the enemies along with her.

Great Design. It's seems somewhat eerie....I would be afraid to fuck with that thing.
On a lighter note the background looks excellent of course. ;)

I don't think so, traditional media can look more touching than digital artwork. Enter the contest too, it's quite fun and don't forget that it's not about winning but for the experience and participating. I also think that you can never say who wins a devArt contest before the winners are chosen. Of course it's good if you submit a piece that you spent time on instead of submitting a quick paint or sketch. But usually I am surprised of the winners of devArt contests, so I think everyone got a chance, especially in this contest it's very important that the idea and concept is good and not just how good or how detailed it's drawn.
Give it a try ;) and good luck!

Thanks!, i have been working on a piece, but my art is, i dont know, good but not really good, and i usually get stumped that how awesome digital art seems. And ti draw with a ball pen it takes a lot of time but still its not that visually appealing, but ill definitely enter, thanks again!

Ah I see, but don't worry digital art and traditional is not that different in the basics. Maybe you can try to draw with acrylics for a while that will get you familiar with colours and stuff.
Before I started digital painting, I always drew with ball-pen and pencils, but usually not with colours or paint. One day you just need to try it and then just practise. I agree that ball-pen is really great, but try different traditional media. It takes some time to get better with it, but every artist starts with some scribbly sketches.

Oh yes one tip here, don't loose your motivation by looking at too much artwork that is at a much higher level than your current art is, this can slow down some artists in their progress. Maybe you can find some traditional artists that are better than you, but just a little better, this way you can try to learn from them step by step. I also had a time when I was looking at a lot of artwork by artist that were much better than me then and I lost most of my motivation for a while, but that's not good. Think that one day you might be as good as the pros, but for now you just need to reach the next step of drawing and to do that it's easier to look at artwork that is not too far away to reach for you in your current level of art.
Always just try to reach the next level, like in a video game you need time to learn and gain experience. You may meet a player that has the really rare equipment, but you might have to first get a common equipment so you can search for the rare one. like you first need to learn the basics of art before you can start to flesh out all the details.
I hope I didn't explain this too difficult ^^;

Sounds great and good luck! ;)
Of course it still takes a long time until I am a real professional artist, but it really depends on what someone sees as a professional. I think you can never learn enough right, but I think I am on the right way to get there.
Oh yeah I found a pretty awesome youtube account of a school of design --> [link]
I have only watched a few video yet but there are a lot of tipps in there. Check them out if you have some time. It's mostly about digital painting but some tipps are about general artwork and what's important to know about lighting and stuff. Really helpfull.

Very awesome design! The human-like face at the front of its head is really quite a creepy and seriously cool part of the design. I really like those wings and the details with all the insect hairs and such. :D

Looks like a winner to me. I particularly like the robust arms; not very insect-like but a welcome change of pace for a bug beast. The seahorse head is interesting too.

Yeah true they could make an add-on for the game, but usually they never use any artwork of the contests, but it would be nice if they made a contest in which the winning artwork get's included. :nod:
