ryan is officially kicking just slightly less ass than me during
my chance encounter with nickel creek...
Holy crap huge sock full of art update!
haha here's the full thorough review i promised you; man there's a lot of material here for me to review :P Anyways, this picture of the sketchjams would indicate that you guys were seemingly have a real cool time. I always enjoy the sketchjams if not for the end result for the psychological aspect of working on the same drawing together under high pressure time constraints... Plus there's the fact that you are revising / editing / trying to decide what you will do with each new pass of the books--> it's a total thrill i've got to say.
The St. George and the dragon is looking super, super nice ryan, thanks for posting it--> The dragon's head (looks like you had a really good time drawing it!) and the composition are particularly strong, though the horse's letgs need not be that dark... I believe that if they were white you'd have much less of a problem with the horse kind of blending into the dragon a little. one other crit would be that the horse's hoof should be like a cylinder on the ground ... it's at the wrong angle. It could come down a little further into the composition / be more outstretched to pull us into the dragon slaying frenzy. I guess that in planning this image you probably saw some of the AMAZING versions of this from history... it's always a blast to see what particular kind of dragon the artist of, say, 800 years ago, will come up with when given the opportunity to bust out some crazy demons
prior to that in the previous update, the studies page for the previously mentioned illo is looking quite nice... It seems like you are starting to expirement a good bit with your ink application??? This guy is totally a keeper---> the effect is so dark and yet he seems to be grinning? I like how i can't really see any outlines... it's like some blurry vision kind of situation. scary. cool--> more pen expiremtation--> is this some kind of marker you are roughing the blackground lines in with??? interesting that you'd say that you are tired of school--> maybe i can see some frustration in this, but your technique looks really good and confident to my eyes,
THE guggenZFREE for you, CHEAP4 them
