    for class we're supposed to design some vehicles, so i'm choosing to do a "caravan" version of that tent building. nothing against giant attack mechs, but i wanted to do something that would fit into the orientalist aesthetic. i'm thinking it would be fun to do futuristic Gerome paintings.

    wow I think youve definitely achieved this. No crits from me, but the oriental aesthetic really has come through. I love the simplicity of post 2341 - nothing to add from me I´m afraid but keep on doing what youre doing - definitely going to be scouring this sketchbook for a few days now.

    God, all your lines are so beautiful. I'm very jealous of the control you have. Wow!

    Your digital paintings are equally as gorgeous. Nice colours.

    more work. more people, more mechs, a flock of goat-things, a bird-rider. i'd really like to get a big canvas and paint this for real...

    It was a busy friday night and saturday afternoon, and I'm f'ing tired now-- happy, but tired. Simon Lee convinced me to go from the sitting bird design to a standing one. Luckily there was a home depot a block away and I showed up for class early. Anyway, I'm finally trying something I always wanted to do.

    Hey Chris I really like the bird in the standing position. It's got some great shapes going on in it. I am just in the process of doing a long legged bird in paper mâché which has been fun. Looking forward to seeing more of this.

    i know there's more detail to be added, but at least it's fleshed out now. got rid of the bird rider because it was killing the mood. added the skyscraper-tents in the background.

    Your past work has been super imaginative, really great progress on that front. The concept with the transportable tent caravan is just really cool.

    WOW - You sir are inspiring me to push myself further, I started on your first page and was instantly awed by your penmanship, then noted it was from 2006!!!

    Thanks a bunch man, going to keep updating my sketchbook and hope my penwork improves. I work almost always these days with pens but your style is masterclass. Not only that your concepts and sculps are on a leveled field too!

    Hope to see your art on the front page to help my art-heart!

    - Spit

    Striving to be the best that is possible before I conk into the grave.

    icecold--Thanks! I'm kind of pushing myself a bit more on the creative front. i think part of my "problem" was i spent too much time overdoing the traditional stuff. not that you can ever really overdo it, but just that i should've switched gears into doing more creative work at some point. it helps that i've kind of created a world or a story for this project. once there's a story and some mood or something, i can just take it and run with it. without a story, i sometimes struggle a lot more. anyway, thanks for sticking around and dropping by. I will keep pushing forward with this stuff.

    spitboi7--Thanks! Very nice for you to say that. I will try to keep it up.

    Cameli--Thanks!

    i can't stand the composition of the last one. and i think the sunset colors are a kind of cliche... very blah blah blah feeling about the whole thing. i think a big underlying problem is that it's halfway in between a character or a creature illustration. can't make up its mind about it. so i'm going to shove it back to blue/gold because i like that color combination for this. and i'm going to stretch it out like a front/back book cover...

    kinda frustrated, but i need to break out of that box...
