Hey Blaz! ^^
Thanks for the comments, and yes, illustration is and has been my weapon of choice for quite some time now. ;)
We'll see about my first wacom pic. Have no clue on what to do! >.<
My main character in GW is Insane Was Em. Feel free to whisp me whenever you want.
Btw, love your updates! ;)
@kischi: Thx. Yeah it looks good from distance because its blury...and thats because its only WIP...although i dont think ill finish it.
@Teh Gosu: Thx man.
@Dandilion: Hey, im eager to see your first true painting with wacom! Will keep an eye on your updates. Untill next time! ;)
Ok as a start on 7th page here is PS picture from today.
Not my character. Its a GW fan art thing for christmas themed calendar.
Its still not finished. Will finish tomorrow. :)
...these are supposed to be imps around him...
...I removed the imps...
fun stuff in the last update :D
good studies too and i really like the style in the pencil drawings ;)
keep 'em coming :)
Hi I been scrolling your SB and I love your pencils and the high contrast stuff! :D
As for krits Im gonna crit this last one.
1st. The pose of the character is the weakest part of your painting, it looks kinda like hes trying not to fall backwards. Try and draw character balanced befor starting to paint.
2nd. The face of the character looks a bit dead. It looks a bit like hes about to charge up a powerful atack but he looks kinda like a grumpy old man. Try and make the yeys say more and also maybe he could do a war-scream. :) just a sugestion.
3rd. The colors look as weak as mine and its something we have to work hard with. :) On thing I do now thats wery helpful is pausing a dvd and painting the screan with eyepicked colors.
Hope to se this evolve to an awsome fiery actack scene! :D
@TheGnoll: Im glad you like em, will do!
@B-Man: Hey,thank you for all those crits, very helpful! I will definitley try to paint something from DVD, right after my themed self portrait,woo! :teeth:
Ok this is my self portrait in pencil. Its base for themed sp for newest Teen Challenge! Colors next! :painting:
Hey you got some really cool and strong work in here.
I would change that avatar If I was you though course the stuff in your sketchbook is way better than that. ;) (no offense) /D
Awesome work Blaz!
I love you're GW concepts , I play the game to and if I could make a choice for GW contest I would pick you'res.
Keep going like that!
PS: If you play at GW whats you're nick? ( if you want to tell it )
yo dude, do more of the environments, if its really ur first is ROCKS.not bad at all. keep doing those!
@ikuru: Thx. But I tought my avatar was kinda cool. Eheh. I really dont know what else to put...:teeth:
@Grizzliman: Hey man, thank you. And my IGN is Corvus Nocis, whisper me anytime you want. :)
@ajvenema: Thx, yes its my very first envo...though I didnt finish it and I wont. xD
Ok my pencil self portrait has some major issues. I look 5 years older too...
So i began painting it today and fixed some stuff... Its WIP!
I also went for piratey theme. :pirate:
Totaly AWASOME updates, a remarkable improvement! Love the evil clown!!! This last self portrait is lookin realy cool tool:)
Lol, you would match perfectly on a pirate ship.
Nice colours, cool concept.
You've definitely got some badass designs goin' on here. Can't wait to see more : D
@D@niel: Thx alot! :D
@Grizzliman: Hehe yeah. And thx!
SP is finished.
Hey guy! Thanks for the comments in my sb - and now, I shall do the same for you!
Niiiice master studies a page back. And your SP is coming along - and yeah, a darker background will give your SP more drama. That'd be very cool.
@PatriciaS: Thx and yes definitely darker barkground. Will update it soon.
And here is rough pencil sketch of my medusa for CHOW #100!
I went for fresh different approach instead of greek one. :)
Yarrr, ye be a gentleman of fortune with fine skillz, me hearty :pirate:
Excellent artz here, B :D More more more! :teeth:
Where's the pineapples Blaz?! :'(
really nice character design man! cool sb....i like ur faces, good expression an attitude...keep the good work comin' mate!
heya, you moving forward very well, nice facial sketches,nice pencil lines,nice characters and nice color,keep it up!I like your colored SP it looks great
Lol, nice medusa, nice SP but like Patricia sayd darker background would be better. Can't wait till there are new posts in here.
Always so juicy in this thread. Excellent creatures. That Medusa is kicking total ass so far. Not that she'd ever dream of messing up that dress.
Hello mate,thanks for posting in my Sb man,first - Happy New Year and second - I can't wait to see your medusa finished.Keep em coming!
@AmontilladoAg: Hehe, thank ye! :teeth:
@Dandilion: Well there were pineapples but I removed em, portrait looked too silly with em. But I have that version saved dont worry! :)
@Dan Valkar: Thank you! :D
@Grizzliman: Thank you, but already made background different, meh i know it sucks. :P
@Discoskull: Hehe yeah, thank you.
@atlantik: Happy new year too you too, and thx alot! :D
Happy New year everyone!
Ok this is so typical of me. I post for few days then i dissapear for a month. Damn, I have to stop slacking so much.
And everything to be worse I gave up on my Medusa, and 3 days till deadline, I wont make it.
Ill just stick to teen challenges! :teeth:
1. New doodle from today, photo ref all except lady with a hat.
2. Updated medusa with base colors. You wont see medusa finished. :(
hey dude, digging that sp, the colours are a bit too "pure" in some parts though (eg: the shirt) mix it up with some variety of compliments and opposites :)
also, im not one to speak but try looking at improving the hatching in your pencil rendering...it looks tad messy atm :)
keep pushing it man!
Thank you PaperX i apprechiate every crit! :confident
Here is something new.
Looking Good Blaz, keep it up dude... Try introducing some shading to your pencil stuff as well, i think it would really benefit... ;-)
Great stuff, I last looked at an artist who worked wih 2 colours black and white and he can do everything with it, try ones to work with much much shadows with different contrast :s (don't know if you spel that right )
That could give a lot of difference in your art.
PS: Srry if I sayd some bullshit probably i did srry.
good update, is this digi or in pen? try having more variance in line weight, and oh yeah.. u didn't really need to get rid of the "horrible drawing" you could probably get some good crits from it :)
neat updates, new page for me. Have your medusa colors all picked out? maybe some subtle reds to go with the green snakes? What do you mean we wont see it finished...running out of time? Either way finish sir. Unless you reallly dont want to. otherwise do it!
SP is definately cool...I agree with the few comments on making it dark...could add some subtle pirate theme in the back like wooden boards. meh maybe your done with it! Gettin good man
