This is some of the stuff I've been doing lately, have lots more to post but will spend a few more hours working on them until i feel they are ready.
I've posted the pencils of some of the finals.
the majority of these look very soft and could have been worked on a bit longer. Amazing values on your pencil sketch of the Raptor. That first one of the Tyrannosaurus is my fav! Great sense of action, however the foreground probably would have looked better without that texture as a solid colour to give it a more cartoony feel. Keep at it!
I enjoy your dinosaurse
you might want to soften some of th muscles in your humans though.
just so the patternes they form, light dark light dark light dark, doesnt distract from what they are actually doing.
tinobrsrk: Thanks, to be honest I feel more confortable with B/W's than colors, is something I still have to work on.
Camara: Glad you like it, as you can see I have a weekness for dinos!
Ellingsworth: eerm...eehh...I ... damn, you are right and I know it's a cheap way to get away with it but it was one of those stupid 3:30 a.m decisions to finalize the pic. YOU CAN BE SURE IT WON'T HAPPEN AGAIN!!
BOOM!! A crit from one of the mayor players!, thanks for the C&C, I know I still have a long way with my colors, I feel more secure with my pencil work but definitevely will be working on my finishes. THANKS!
SEVANS: Thanks mate, will keep posting more.
TheMadPaddy: Thanks!, glad you like it, I sure had a hell of a time doing it!
Flipnastywebby: Thanks for the C&C's, i have more dinos I'll try to finish between jobs, I'll keep an eye on my renderings
dkounios: hey! glad you like the colors, I feel is my "week spot" and is something I'm trying hard to get better at.
I have a couple of pencils (yes, some errors in anatomy) I want to get my hands on to color as soon as I get the chance, time is hell right now, but anyway here they are plus more dinos.
Your pencil sketches of the dinosuar heads are my fave by far! The detail is amazingly good. Some of your colour work still looks a bit 'soft' and fuzzy in areas and could do with some sharpening up, like when it comes to focusing on a certain area of the image (mainly the guy in the snow, i think that's the weakest piece here), but other than that I really like your work..Nice one.
Chermilla: Thanks for your comments, I agree with you, my b/w's are stronger than my colors but that's something i'm working on. Glad you like my work!
Venger: yes, Delgado's dinosaurs are among my favorites, that guy knows how to draw prehistoric beast!, i love his art.
earthstormjim: Ja! que bueno ver a otro compatriota por acá! ví su ultimo post (12/5/008?) y me gustaron mucho los colores de los "environments" (como se traduce bien? ambientes? localidades? sets?)
Se nota la evolución comparando el post anterior.
awesome man....really dig the dino head's...though you could have possiblly added a little more shading to describe the form a bit more, some of the areas are a touch flattened-that said, the textures are beautifull....see ya soon for more sketching
Ur the Dino man, dude! Love 'm...The first one is nice but it looks too much like u cut it out from somewhere and pasted in into a background..My humble advice: Soften the contours of the dino a bit more and add some scenery colors so he blends more in.
More like u did with that last dragon...I like that style more
"dino man"??? hahaha I love dinos so much appreciated mate , you are absolutely right about that first one, it completely lacks ambience light and it needs some bouncing light.. the only thing I can say is that it is quite old and didn't know better back then but that's no excuse for not taking the time and fixing it right?? will do...eventualy..
I studied anatomy way back in school and continue to do so now days every time I have the chance, I guess you'll never be too good at anatomy so I keep my sketchbook with me all the time to doodle on the tube or in a park seeing people. My style (and I don't think I can say I have one defined) is more comic oriented, Joe and Adam Kubert were a huge influence on me when I was into comics.
Transroborball: glad you like them mate thanks for stopping by!
