hey you're that guy who drew the awesome evil-eye-with-flies-and-veil image love your mastery of skin colors and anatomy! nice lighting too, especially on that jedi (undressing, panties) girl pic, looking forward to updates!
Sexy!! But a pleasure to look at not just because of that, hehe. The tut might come in useful, though that's sort of the way I paint already. Say, do you always start with the linework? I find it more free to start with blobs of color/silhouette or a very very loose linework. This way I don't get trapped inside the linework.
Keep showing this good stuff!
Damn!!Your chicks are hot!!The anatomy and the colors in the last one are great!!Very good work!
The reflected light to under her butt makes for such a nice depth and weight to the form.

Your skin tones and blending are wonderful. Do you often start on a white ground and then change it later? I guess I´d love some more step by steps.
Please post more.

Sheesh I guess I should check my sketchbook more often, I've had so much work over the past month, this is about my 30th day straight of work, I guess I don't now how to give myself a break. on top of that I foolishly decided to take on the 100 creature COW as well lol, pretty exhausting month anyway I guess I'll post a few sample creatures to give you a taste till the post is up.
roidvoid- thanks for the crit, I agree with you, I may fix it up a bit before posting it over at CGSociety.
jdeegz- I see what you both are saying, I need to practice my feet more
halaster- I'm glad you like my work, I appreciate the comment
Jakers-it always helps me to see how an artist goes from sketch to painting so I try to do the same, incase its helpful. yea, her feet aren't very sexy..
Dan Valkar- thank you
RandAlThor- I like skin
BohemianChaos- hopefully I'll be able to get some full fledged illustrations up at some point.
deadred- yep thats me! I'm actually going to be making a tutorial for that one in a magazine soon.
razz- I usually do, getting all the work done in the sketch stage makes the painting portion go quicker for me, also depends on what i'm doing, I'm much more loose with the quicker stuff.
MonkeYoakum- I love reflective light and I'm glad it was successful in the piece!
Coleb- I'll try to get some more up, usually I find a midtone to start with so I can add lights and darks to it, similar to with charcoal drawings.
OBX- cool, hopefully that means I'm getting better
kischi- thanks, I always loved painting more than sketching
third row, far left has my vote for favoright, looks botanical. Nice.
SketchBook Chris Yoakum?
Wow, stunning work in this thread, and really interesting to see how you've handed the whole speed issue, something I really need to work on myself. I actually like the smile on the executioner, and the finished version of the girl with the swords is stunning, how long did that take you? Liking the thumbs of the creatures too, very very nice indeed. Damn I need to work more!
Great thumbs, im impressed by a great deal of them...its going to take ages to check out all the 100 COW entries!
MonkeYoakum-thanks he was the last creature I painted.
BohemianChaos- I have more lol
zephyri- i'm definitely getting faster, She took around two sittings, I can't remember exactly but I know i did it over the weekend so it went pretty fast. thanks the thumbs took a lot of energy out of me lol, if you haven't already be sure to vote over at the COW thread!
Jakers-thanks, yeah there's so many up its hard to decide.
I had a lot of of with this COW! after seeing everyone else's I sort of wish I had presented mine a little better lol, but o well. here are the rest of them. if anyone wants a certain one in a higher resolution let me know and i'll post it up. actually the 100 creature poll has a much higher resolution version of these so check that out as well if you'd like
I distinctly remember seeing a few of these designs when I was browsing though them once the event was finished, great job! I feel bad for not doing it and bettering my skills in the creature department. Though nothing is stopping me from doing it on my own just too much else im working on. Post some more stuff when you got it sir
