    ehm, kick in the balls?
    You are at least kicking mine with these insane updates!

    Been a while since I checked in here, but my did I miss a few updates I really like that mining piece you did a while ago, it's really neat. The life drawings seem to come along ok too, reminds me I should do those too one day

    Your Industrial Design stuff needs some work though. You might want to focus more on getting the shapes and perspective right than going all out on the rendering I'd say (that last tractor is really wobbly but the colours work well for example). Invest some time figuring out perspective and stuff like that I'd recommend, and overlay your image over the photo to see where things are off might help too.

    Anyway, good to see you're still at it

    well i don't think there that bad. They remind me of something like one of those well detailed illustration books that they used for children stories. I dunno your characters have this classical cartooning look. Like what they used to try to do.

    I think its the characters eyes that remind me of those things xD

    My observational skills may be great but i said nothing about my drawing skills

    the life drawing are getting soo good I dont really have anything to suggest with them, other than inconsitant head sizes...a few in the last bunch were small, so perhaps make an effort to double check it before actually putting in the face....minor gripe I know!

    Some fun character work as well...wish I could help more, however I will be back for a longer look with your next updates

    Hi, it was good meeting you at Reverie and I look forward to seeing more of your work here. Have fun with 3D Studio Max! Ever get a chance to try Z Brush?

    Hive_minD: Thanks! I'll try to update more I'm getting too lazy to take pictures of my life drawings though.

    yoitisi: Thanks for dropping by. It was great seeing you in person at the workshop! Thanks also for the pointers in structural drawing. I'll keep practicing.

    My57: Thanks! Well, I dunno... at least it's not manga look I started out drawing manga like many other people, and I had a tough time trying to shake that look!

    Jakers: Thanks! I'll try not to spend too much time on the face. I need to concentrate on the stuff I'm worse at, like... everything else

    AikidoAl : Thanks! It was great seeing you too! I tried Z brush very, very briefly... made the mistake of downloading the demo when I had absolutely no time to try it It looks like a lot of fun, and I'm hoping for a chance to try it more.

    =========

    Been meaning to take photos of my recent life drawings, but I want to do it during daylight, and... well, I still haven't mustered enough energy to take those pictures >_<

    Reverie was amazing. I got a lot more out of it than I thought I would. Mostly, I got a much needed reminder of how much I want it, and where I stand among people who are also trying.

    Uploading a couple of drawings I did during Reverie, when I probably should have been socializing but couldn't contain the urge to draw after seeing all the awesomeness. Trying to copy one of Nox's sketches was very inspirational. I then painted a much, much lamer robot, but it is one of the more 3d-looking thing I've ever managed to paint. Aslo had fun painting a very old daily sketch group topic "living tattoo" with Sentinel.

    You've already advanced miles beyond your tractor update...those robots are looking really solid (esp one on the right)! Cool idea for the tattoo image, also, though the dragon doesn't *quite* look like he's adhering to the skin in the more shadowy areas. Looking forward to the life drawings.

    Long time since I was here! and damn!

    I think your life studies are great! really strong work. Keep proportions in mind though, some of them are a bit distorted and look unnatural.
    Digitals looking good too! though I think you should push your contrast more, darker shades and brighter highlights! give it a shot.. it's really hard to begin with, have in mind that the viewer won't percieve the piece the way you do when painting it, and that what feels unnatural actually is taken for granted when we observe a picutre. It's first when we break down the whole aspect of viewing and become aware of what we actually are looking at that you'll notice how strong the shadows and highlights are. I think it'll push your work a lot more!
    Great work!

    Nightblue your stuff is starting to look real clean, where u going to school now? I'm considering going to the guildhall whenever i finally grad UNT in 2 years but i can't help but wonder if it would be best for me. I'm good with maya and i already make games with teams here at UNT, i'm more interested in honing my concept art skills and it just doesn't seem like texas has a school for that , just wondering your opinion...

    courtyard: thanks! I promise the life drawings will come. I need to photograph them so I can use them as future pose reference. I just need to stop pushing the darned snooze button on my alarm clock in the morning...

    DefiledVisions
    : thanks! I'm trying to stay away from using pure black, and as a result I think I'm using too "floaty" of a palette. I am learning to use drop shadows more. Appreciate the advice and will definitely keep it in mind

    AikidoAl: mechas are amazingly fun to draw, especially since you can make stuff up I need to learn more about mecha parts though.

    FrankDaTank117: Thanks for the kind words and thanks for dropping by! reply sent in PM.


    ========
    Been working OT and doing personal projects, biting off more than I can chew as usual

    My first professional game project has been announced... Here's the IGN article: http://wii.ign.com/articles/977/977517p1.html I'm very happy about this it's kind of like a career milestone of some kind, hopefully marking the first of many.

    Managed to finish my character for Team Chow, and squeezed in a quick DSG. never managed to get up early and take pictures of my life drawings during daylight though... hopefully soon! I think I'm getting a little better

    Been painting... can't post most of the stuff though, and right now I hate my life drawings so I won't post them either

    Trying to reboot the daily study thing, focusing on stuff I'm bad at. Doing photo studies before I can think of something better. No more hiding behind crunch mode and OTs.

    This painting is looking good, the main thing I can say though, is to watch the way the lighting comes out of the streetlights. Mainly just the starburst one of the right of the picture.
    The buildings are beautifully rendered though

    I'm glad to see you continuing the art trek
    I'm still subb'd lol

    cout: Thanks! Work's been going well. Hitting the first real "crunch period" the industry is so famous of though, so I'll probably have to lay off CHOWs for a bit.

    ==

    Internet blinked out last night, so I couldn't find a good ref photo. Master study it is. If you recognize who did the original, please let me know I got the file off an reference folder trade.

    Matt: hehe, thanks... well, I wish you could practice for me and I'd get better I'm forcing myself to tackle environment, especially ones with geometric shapes, because I need improvement in both perspective and composition.

    Lakeland: Appreciate the kind words

    A photo study that took rather longer than I anticipated. The weekend is pretty much over, so I'll have to call this done. Beautiful photo by Angelreich.

    hey dude, still lots of productive awesomeness coming out of here!

    are you familiar with the Reilly method of figure drawing? your style looks like you have some familiarity with it at present. if i can make a suggestion, try to relate more shapes and lines of the body to each other. like, i mean, you can carry an outline of the curve of the torso to the curve of the thigh, or from the arm down to the foot, or something like that. check out Glen Orbik's website, Kevin Chen's tutorials, or like, the sketchbooks of kevinwueste, sfa, aztcfireflower, E M Gist, RaileyH, and the like. your stuff is good, i think it could make it that much better. g'luck dude, i await more goodies from you!

    Still just as neat as ever... my favorite of this batch is the last one, the ink and graphite.
    I was wondering, where do you go for your life drawing now that you're out of school?

    I'm glad to see that the art spirit remains inside you miss NB good luck with everything as always hehe

    Nightblue - lovely stuff as usual. your life drawings are wonderful - I especially like the last one because of the strong contrast. It's realistic but also has a very good design feel to it.

    Keep it up!

    The Newborn entry is beautiful! I love the juxtaposition of the dead guy and the baby, as well as the mech in the stork witht he surrounding 'ancient' background. There's a marvelous amount of studies, and they are definitely helping you improve.
