that last dragon is terrific.
it actually gets out of the conventional side in a good way, i love it!
as always, your art is awesome, Ian :)
so well done!
honored being an inspiration :)
one advice for you to go forward with your art: for readability purposes, try showing a bit less of the big brush strokes, as they tend to interfere with how the...
i'm actually having fun right now with custom actions, will try to give an explanation soon. another one of these weird abstract process thing.
here's a result done with it :
AbstractRealm: thanks for keeping this thread going.
it's an awesome image!
i'll try to give replies and updates soon for any new findings. it's so fun and useful.
mpaquin: i don't know which...

hehe thanks guys.
h2rra: hehehe it was just a small joke, but i wasn't going to make it last. :)
i'm glad you're finding this technique useful. i've seen several awesome artworks popping here and there with it, and it's extremely fun and exciting seeing what peeps do with it.
halogen: just another word. you cannot give any direction to custom shapes. i know it's a bummer, but it's just not implemented. however once applied you can rotate and tweak each shape all you want....
jockemon: "I dont really know how to explain it but, it just sparks your imagination and all that stuff". i think you described it well. it is not only a way to build an image, but also a way to get...
Ethan: not a problem at all
Virg, i think you described it best, you nailed it!
This is when it's becoming exciting, when you manage to create masks for each section, that you...
the best way to describe it is that you create masks for each big group of shapes you're making, and this according to where they're located too. foreground, middleground,...
what a great sketchbook.
your line work has a very fluid feel to it, it's awesome!
drey101: i'll do my best.
but once again, i think this technique requires knowledge of how to built images, how to organize the visual direction of your subject, etc etc.
i actually pushed another one today, based around rock structures.
custom shapes done for most of it.
it is always fairly easy to built a landscape with this system: it's all about...
you are all very welcome!
i'll update as much as i can.
there's a lot to talk about.
i'll also try to post a tutorial if i can squeeze the time.
concerning custom shapes, i thought it was mainly an illustrator thing at first. when i created a first shape at the very beginning i was a bit doubtful i could ever use it smartly. but the more you...
so let me continue with that whole custom shape thing.
i'm actually cut and pasting extracts of conversation i have been having elsewhere, so i hope it still makes sense :)
a few notes:
i haven't posted for ages. and i guess it would be wise to open a new sketchbook on CA, where i'll be able to gather some of the latest stuff, as well as having a new spot to 2011.
hahaha ben, that panda one made my day.
glas to see you post things :)
this is fantastic. epic and splendid in so many ways. i love that green god statue one, with these digonal beams of light and tiny figures. it's amazing.
there's that druillet feel to these,...
thanks all! i'm happy you liked those.
ikage: i'll do my best hehehe
majora, inversions, colombusSage, rawwad, soulburn3d, matejapetkovic, oalexis: thanks!!!
