    Yeah, it's a great way to get the values right if you wanna get them right pretty fast.
    It looks pretty colourful and good there.
    Great I'd say!

    About the sex thing, there was a swedish ad (on radio) with a man who said:
    "Yes please, I want sex" and sex is the same word as six in swedish.
    And after that he stated that if you say "sex" instead of "fem" (five) 40-60% more would "hear" it.

    I still love you B/W! Almost as much as I like your coloured images.

    Call me anal but I really prefer starting off with colour instead of going there with a black and white. The difference is that when you start off you have more freedom and you're less cautious about slapping things down, and this usually ends up working great for your work. To keep the value structure under control, just desatuarate everything every now and then and check up on it.

    Working to colour from b&w often means the colour ands up feeling a bit dead (though many artists like bumskee can prove me wrong there).

    In terms of design (more specifically character design) those shoulder pads things on this last guy seems like a bad decision to me. Don't think that grants him a lot of mobility (in fact) and it doesn't seem to suit the type of character he is. I'm liking the white cutting into the figure, makes him look fragmented. Think that's something you can definitely take further and evolve into a concept on its own.

    Overall this book is really impressive, really liking some of the stuff happening on the previous page. Nice handle on faces mate.

    It's good to see more of this type of drive locally, SA has loads of talent but it simply isn't making enough of an effort to develop and build on that.
    Keep going here man, and have some stars .
    edit: forgot your stars, there they are now .

    Yer D@niel there is real improvement throughout this sketchbook. I love following the progress theres been. I think that the last B&W to colour piece did turn out pretty well but I personally prefer your straight to colour efforts.

    Daniel, as far as color goes... I think using the method you used there is a good starting point because you can block in basic colors and decide on a color scheme, but I think it's really necessary to do another layer of painting on top once you have that base. Most painting teachers tell there students to use a pre-mixed (or I guess in digital's case pure) black or pure white very VERY sparingly, if ever.

    Diphallia:Thanks man Thats freekin hilarious!!!! Strange that six and sex should share a word, wander how that happened!?!?
    Brendan N:Thanks so much for the post and the advice! I tend to agree with you about starting with colour, seems more natural. Just thaught i would ive it a go after looking at Mins work
    spazazo:Thans man, I agree with you.
    grae:Very true, good advice, thanks.

    Well, I decided to re install windows because my computer was so buggy, luckily i had partitioned it so that i could format the partition with windows and leave all my other stuff intact. I did this but after istalling windows the partition with all my stuff on it wasnt beeing recognised. I took out my hard drive plugged it into my brothers computer and saw that all my stuff was still there I then took it into the computer store that i had baught it from and asked them to fix it( having told them the whole story). I got a call the next day from the shop telling me that they had fixed my PC and that i could pick it up. When i arrived i asked what had been wrong and how had they fixed it, the guy then proudly tells me that all he did was reformat both partitions. ALL my stuff is gone( appart from my art wich i cleverly backed up onto a DVD, THANK GOD).
    This is my long excuse as to why i havnt posted in a while, here are some pencils i did, while mourning my lost data

    Damn thats tough man. Nice pencils anyway. Just try to think of it as a fresh start. Plus you can download any of the stuff you saved on your sketchbook. Keep it up anyway, don't let it slow you down.

    Oooh very nice SB! Last post is stunning...

    ...Im also clueless about that B&W to color thing. Also noticed lots of artists do it but never got the chance to find out how...so all those poor things I did in PS i did with color from the beginning.

    Keep updating!
