davi: you make a valid point so...
...here's some bones... i think there's a sloth in there somewhere, weird. i'll do more when i'm not being overburdened by work.
i haven't updated recently, here's a couple things... mostly robots and death machines nothing really special. Currently working through a couple ideas for the IDW #48, we'll see how that pans out.
i just got painterX and a tablet so i've been having too much fun playing around in that.... i should really do some studies while i play with brushes now that i think about it. RIGHT THEN... i'll get right on that!
you got a thing for vehicles man. it seems to be one of your strong points, keep an eye on that!
adraude: yeah, machines are fun to draw. I'll probably go to a construction site and snap a bunch of snappy snappies when i get a bigger memory card for my camera.
playing around with brushes in painter, figured i'd crank through some stuff from reference. Looking at core shadows and forms.
Here's a taste, not too happy with the neck. Took me a while to get used to the differences over photoshop: 2hrs? give or take. Still working on my edge control, that's really sloppyjoe right now. I'll have more as the week progresses. I'm also going through loomis, expect lots of figures in the time to come. Hah.
Anyone know where to get some good textures for painter? I'm fresh out.
Hey gus, those value studies are turning out great. Is that an Earthbound sketchbook by any chance, picked one up myself and am loving the already toned ground=D
Sketchbook!! Please help me improve!
Good studies on painter. Keep pounding away at it... the 60 min one is probably the cleanest. Practicing your speed is good! Results are showing already.
More sketches from your book, too...keep this sucker updated.
HI great works ! i love it especially your cats work" what kind of paper did you use ? !!
i was Shin natsume, now i'm Thanathos
my previous sketchbook :
hey mark - these are looking really good The value studies in painter are really quite good. If you want to improve on faces like you said I would suggest not trying to work on them along w/ the body within a meer 30 mins (heh seems rushed). Instead if your speeding along and trying to learn body anatomy I would ignore the face all together for these studies. To improve on faces you just have to do the same kinda thing, only with faces. A friend of mine told me to draw 50 heads in a week, and it really helped out my ability to construct faces. Keep at it dude - your vehicles rock.
speaking of which - do you go to / have you gone to art center? your work reminds me a ton of what they teach... that and you said you're in the bay area
Good SB. Especially love the Kitten sketches.
No real crits, as I can see you trying things and drawing from reference... so just have fun and post more!
