    Hello,

    This is currently on my plate now:


    I've been mentoring with Iain McCaig and he wants the entire, as in all the plot points, of Red Riding Hood in a single illustration.... kewl, but will require more study!

    I took my sketch and roughed in the values (underneath), then added some detail + cleanup on top (all in BW still), then I started blending some colours in overlay mode just to give me a variety to choose from as I go in for another pass. I didn't post the colour one big as really it's just a palette mixer at this point!

    More to come!

    Cheers,
    Matt

    The studies are good, you should do more. Do some studies on female faces, make them attractive.

    Hope you'll do better, cause you can.

    Vigilandus, I thank your comments - much obliged. I agree she looks a bit haggard but as you say, nothing further study can't fix. Will incorporate sexyness blending mode tomorrow....

    Some further venturing into the unknown... I think some moonlight/rock/bear studies will ensure success

    Lot's of pictures for a new sketchbook. It seems you still have some problems with anatomy. Also you still have to work on you painting-skills. Post some more work, specilally some studies.

    The landscapes are good. Your figures still have a way to go, but you're on the right track. Practice a lot with anatomy (especially the structure of the head) and proportion. Your (what I assume are) non-referenced paintings lack a sense of solidity, too -- do some study on light and shadow, to define form. I agree with Cepro -- do some studies, and let's see em. Keep it up!

    ketchook!

    Wow! Thank you for your advice and encouragement gentlemen.

    It's great being able to relate to you and your works with respect to the process of creativity/study/putting it together. It took me many years of wavering to actually experience the benefits of clearcut, focused study. Both your comments totally enforced the process and I will work on anatomy (heads), proportion, painting technique, and light studies (FunFetus - you got some tight studies on your sketching pad!)

    More to come!







    Thanks again guys,
    Matt

    Hey thank you very much Laura, Radio and Jean!

    The trick is to do this stuff daily.... then you'll have an addiction hahaha!

    I'll just keep trucking (or in this case, bulldozing). I feel I have a lot more study to do. I probably won't kick that feeling in this lifetime pld:

    Laura, you mentioned you dig my style - thanks! Sooner or later, I'm going to have to explore more...

    As Alister Lockhart once said:
    I think its enormously important for a commercial illustrator to be able to satisfy the needs of any client who come to them for a visual solution. Constant experimentation with different styles will also ensure that your love of the process endures.
    Also, this interview with Daniel Dociu has some inspiring comments on how style grows naturally, "resonating within one's sensibility" kewl....

    And of course an update! I like the contrast of nature/machine... but alas nature endures... also she's be front lit!



    Thanks for being here! Comments are always welcome!

    Regards,
    Matt
