some quick studys of old paintings and a couple o others
A maybe chow sketch
and an older one
Nice gollum :p
Like your studies of the old paintings. Looks nice. Some of your own stuff looks a little lifeless and flat though. Add some more life and shadows, and remember the basic rules of cones, balls and cylinders when it comes to the human body

Youve got a good grasp of design and colour in these, but the digis are getting quite muddy in your blending. I think its primarily cause youre using brushes that are way too small, and making an uneccessarily scratchy blended look. Always try and use the biggest brush possible to define a plane or blend, why render something with 50 brushstrokes when you can do it more effectively with 5?
Other than that cg issue, youre on the right track!
Hey thanks a lot SirGreenSock hopefully some big brushes will make the difference
here's a couple of WIP
One for this weeks CHOW
A sort of rodent Lord of the Rings
and one just for fun
My Chow final
dude, i hope the admins dont get mad at me for saying this, but you fucking ROCK!!!
Thanks Hellblaze :-)
finished for now i think
Nice progress. There are some problems with perspective in your last works, the girl and the room dont quite match in perspective, the hamsters dont match with their surroundings either, try doing some excersizes with perspective placing boxes, cilinders and spheres in different sizes, positions and angles. Perspective is really well explained in loomis books, if you care to look. Some things look kind of flat too, some faces of the hamsters for example, and the room in wich the girl is in, the two walls should have some differentiation in value, and not have so much contrast in them. Keep up the good work!.
dadushin Thanks :-)
Christian223 i totally never noticed the perspective was off i'm reworking the background just now and perspective's on my long list of things to work on :-) Thanks
