a drawing of a monster which seems to be pretty surprise with the bird perched on his shoulder. i could imagine the monster screaming "I'M NOT A F*CKING TREE!!!". so there we go...

Nice pencil work! I think your stuff would look even better.in black Col Erase or other colored pencil, on smooth paper. It's so much nicer than graphite IMO
June 27th, 2007 #10
really great stuff so far! That first anatomy excercise looks really helpful, I dont know how well I'd be able to keep my attention throughout it, though.
its obvious you are very talented, your character designs are really well done, they just don't seem to look finished. I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT!
June 27th, 2007 #11
ah yes... COL ERASE and PRISMACOLORS... i've tried them but i still need to learn how to render with it in a clean way, just like carlos huante does (fyi,one of the best artist in the world). also, does anyone know a good smooth paper?? yeah i know it looks unfinished.... i'll do better next time 28chelseaslater... thank you for the comment...

Yes, I have the Carlos Huante Gnomon vids. One of the ways he gets those soft tones is to smudge with a tissue wet with alcohol. Probably smudges with dry too. Personally I like to render with carefully laid, slightly curving hatch lines, which is how many of the old masters rendered. Try laying down some tone and smudging with your finger or use the side of the lead.
For the paper, just use a good layout bond, marker paper, or copy paper. Smooth bristol board is alot sturdier and permanent, but I find the surface to hard. The other papers have a soft feel.

sweet! thanks ArtznCraphs. I'll keep that in mind.

these are some old works... actually my first try in coloring digitally. It was for my character and object design class, and we have to come up with some characters base on the seven deadly sins. So these guys are lust, sloth and gluttony, respectively. man, i still need to learn more about digital painting. please, could anyone help me improve my style? thanks.

COW: Summer Plague: The Boaris Plague
The Summer Season is often feared by the people of the tribe Quathcala. Not only because the harvest is not good, but also a terrible creature plagues
their lands; eating their harvests and their animals. It was told that their land is cursed. This curse began when the Gods ordered a farmer to bring his son to the highest mountain and bring him as a sacrifice. The Farmer's heart was broken yet he must offer his son, in order for the God's to bestow them a bountiful harvest for this season. The farmer was torn between his love for his child and his gods. So, the night before he should make his offering, he picked his best and fattest pig, and put clothes on it. The next day, he offered the pig to the Gods, hoping that he will fool the Gods. But, the Gods were no fools. The Gods got mad and condemned the lands of Quathcala. The Gods turned the pig into a horrible creature and promised that it will return every time the sun's heat is searing and merciless. Only killing the pig and offering it's head will end the curse... so far, the tribe of Quatchala still awaits for a hero to emerge...

hey, just found your sb, very nice.
your pencil drawings and designs are very cool, though i think your paintings are looking a bit hazy and undefined in places, save for that summer plague cow, that is just perfect (both the pencils and the colour)
ill definitley be checking back here, keep it up
August 18th, 2007 #27
nizza-waaarg - Thanks man. yeah, i know my digital works are a bit hazy haha i'm still new to this kind of digital painting stuff... hopefully i'll get used to it soon. Again thanks for the comment

These look very nice. I like the digitals alot; and the monsters have some very well developed personality. I would look to some of the proportions on the human figures. The Spartan, for example, looks a little large in the hips. He seems to be the only one, but a few of the others have some strange looking muscle arangement in the arms. But, these would be nit-picking type crits; the rendering on all of it rocks!
August 18th, 2007 #29
masterpug - thanks for the crit. i''ll work on it. yeah it look a little large... i'll fix that when i paint it. which i'll start doing...... now! hehe
