    Great concepts and really nice lines.
    I like how you can make levels of depth so clever using shadows like you did on those sketches with the trees behind the men.
    You have quite a fantasy man.
    Cheers!

    this is another approach we're learning in class. basically, you start with verbs or action words--run, jump, smash, bend, fold, etc. then you start drawing abstract form/function/motion representations of those actions.

    here's a sample list of verbs and a couple of abstract representation diagrams
    Name:  Week6_ClassNotes_01.jpg
Views: 1541
Size:  286.0 KB


    then, i chose the verb "cut" and tried to list all the different sub-verbs or subtypes of cutting i could think of.
    Name:  Week6_ClassNotes_02.jpg
Views: 1438
Size:  253.7 KB


    there are different ways you can apply these representations, you can have some part of a mech which moves in a "cutting" motion, you can have a tool or prop that actually functions as a cutting implement, or you can have an object that is composed of forms that show an abstract "cutting" relationship. anyway, i picked the third way and in the back of my mind, i thought i would do architecture or environments based on "cutting"

    here are some of my abstracts:
    Name:  Week6_Abstract_01.jpg

    Name:  Week6_Abstract_02.jpg

Views: 1414
Size:  203.8 KB
    Name:  Week6_Abstract_05.jpg
Views: 1410
Size:  141.9 KB

    this is a quick rough design based on one of those abstract form studies.
    Name:  Week6_design_01.jpg
Views: 1408
Size:  135.4 KB


    i'm not sure, but i think this approach is very similar to what product designers use. make a shoe that says "jump", etc. you can imagine some marketing director telling a designer to envision concepts based on these action words. anyway, i like this approach a lot. not good at it yet, but i can tell it has a lot of possibilities for unique designs that i ordinarily wouldn't think of. i don't know, but maybe it will work for you in some way.

    don't have time to write more at the moment, but

    THANKS! Obstfelfer, Axelga, MacTire, knut-, VelocityKendall, NickyBeats, and the rest of you

    MarionRowling--Thanks! Glad it's worth checking out for you!

    Infinit--Thanks!

    blcf--Thanks!

    phatbuddha FUSHANDCHUPS--Thanks! It was a fun assignment to do. nice to break out the graphite for a change.

    Sickbrush--hey dude! life is busy as hell and full of a lot of ups and downs lately. wish i could say more but i can't post it online. i have been getting more opportunities to sculpt digitally at work, so i'm boning up on my Zbrush and modo chops. between that and classwork, i haven't been getting much time to mellow out. probably going to take the next term off from classes just to start finishing up all the personal artwork and concepts.

    Wow Chris what cool projects to work on. Must be very exciting to get to work on such fantastic sculptures, your paint over and tattoo design looks really good. Are you a friend of Will's, does he have a blog?

    Will has a thread on ZBrushCentral.com. I think he's also one of those top-row guys with a gallery too.

    He has a ton of stuff I'm sure he can't show yet. His cubicle is down the hall from me, so I get to peek over the wall and see what he's up to. Super nice guy.

    Thanks Chris, must be really inspiring for you both to see what each other is working on. I love the intricacy of the head dress on this last one, I hope you are going to paint it.

    very quick speed paint at lunch. maybe 10-15min.
    trying to get more painterly with photoshop because i've been doing too much line work lately. i don't fully understand all the knobs and dials, but i'd suggest playing around with the mixer brush (under the normal photoshop [B] brush tool) to get some of these effects. basically you can get a multicolored brushstroke and blend pretty easily.

    Marian--Thanks! I'll probably paint it if I get a chance, but it depends on getting a chance... which is kind of hard right now due to family stuff. Yeah, Will is cool to work with. I don't always get on the same projects as he does, but it's fun when I do.
