    returning the favor - love all this bro, looks like pure fun and relaxation. if i had to describe all this into one word it would be "escapism".

    Hope everything is good with you and let's chat some time soon bro,
    cheers!

    awesome sculpture! Is it done? Or are you gonna keep adding detail to it?

    My observational skills may be great but i said nothing about my drawing skills

    Long time since I've been by, love what you have been doing lately. I've been meaning to look at that custom shapes tutorial since a friend of mine mentioned it but I totally forgot about it. Looks awesome, thanks for updating.

    gotta keep it really quick tonight:

    Ayem--Thanks!

    jedininjaman--Thanks man! That tutorial is pretty sweet. i wish i had more time to play with it.

    oma--Thanks!

    reika--Thanks! Take everything i said with a healthy dose of skepticism. i can be pretty moody and i'm breaking into the industry through a very tiny back door. there are at least as many cool people as jackasses despite how pessimistic i sound at times.

    my57-- needs a lot more work. i have lost my sculpture stands, so i'm putting it on hold for a little bit.

    sickbrush--thanks man, it's all escapism compared to LA traffic.

    I love that you left the gestural, quick shapes on this last one. Really solid looking... and the guy looks powerful, too. And if Mick Jagger saw that guy's lips, he would be shamed

    More please

    Fantastic work as always Chris, great work on that sculpture and that character (nearly vehicle?!) design, though those lips do look a little odd now.

    Anyway, looking forward to more!!

    pushed a few pixels so the lips wouldn't be so distracting. fixed some stuff with the mech hands, did some more rough rendering. whatever.

    p sage--Thanks! i'll post more as soon as my hands stop cramping.

    MacTire--Thanks man!

    creeptool--thanks!

    The Flying Dutchman--Thanks, but the eastwood piece was done by Sebastien Kruger, the famous illustrator and painter. i went to his workshop last year in santa barbara. you should check him out online. there's a ton of stuff.

    Teun De Boer-- Thanks T!

    Popping in to say hi!

    Very slick, man. The relationship between your light and dark armor pieces looks spot on to me. Digging the continued attention to sculpture, too.

    staticpen--Thanks man. Sorry I've been out of touch.

    kevinwueste--Thanks Kevin! ...but I think you're way too good for most classes down here. I'm doing these instead of going to class for the time being.

    bebbo--Thanks! hopefully this will be done soon. there are other designs i want to work on.

    Henrique Ventura--Thanks!

    VelocityKendall--Thanks! I really appreciate it. Your stuff is great!

    prsnsweeney--Thanks! yeah, i was feeling nostalgic today. I'm glad they have something posted. the way the old drawing knowledge spread from fine art to illustration is very interesting. if anything, it helps justify that illustrators and illustration should be taken seriously.

    Jean-Leon Gerome --> George Bridgman --> Frank Reilly --> Fixler --> Westermoe/Orbik, etc. --> all of the rest of us doofuses.

    that's quite a f'ing legacy, right?

    These are some sample images of stuff i've done for work at Gentle Giant Studios. the length of time i get to spend on each thing varies a lot. sometimes i have time to render, sometimes i get to noodle in graphite or use gray paper, sometimes it's just hit-and-run. but it's a fun mix of stuff to draw, and it's actually a bit of a challenge to design from the waist-up.

    anyway, there's a lot more i can't show. but i hope they get released soon.

    Great mech designs! Do you actually sit and figure out how they work before you draw them or is it more of an intuitive process?
