    Thanks Liffey.

    Just a few more sketches and a couple things from uni too. The black and white chiaroscuro studies were set up with establishing a texture on cardboard using gesso and mostly brushes (some household objects...) then painting them black, then drybrushing with white over the top. The one with the "cupped" hand was a bit cheaply done though, using a photo with a "traced outline" onto the cardboard as a reference... the other hand has the tracing too but only very faintly, so I still had to work from my reference by eye a lot (tutor didn't want us to do that... but I really wanted to practice with hands so...)

    Couple more sketches of my alien character! I decided his antenna to have a mind of its own, somewhat assisting him and annoying him at times.... And really great for emotive expressiveness. But it causes him to feel irrational fear because his antenna has become scared of something in the distance he's not aware of yet... or causes a lot of ambivalence and confused emotions. His people all have one of these, but the black bud at the tip (which holds the brain of the antenna) are usually removed after their teen years (angst, ambivalence, confused emotions har har)... which renders the antenna lifeless... This alien is a special case, emancipated himself and went rogue for a while so the operation was never conducted on him. There's also a brief sketch of his vehicle .... which has a few artifacts salvaged from Earth on it. Earth is destroyed in my story, and pays a homage to Douglas Adams' "Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy" by being described as "euthanised to make way for an interstellar bypass".

    Other bits and bobs in there too.


    Edit: Oh yeah! Life news, I just got accepted for a part time graphic/web designer permanent position while undergoing my study! So fricken stoked about it!!!

    Ta' very much you lot!

    Another dry brush image with some really badly done hands... Bah. It's for Illustration class: Trying to make a comment on how you'll forfeit opportunities if you stay within your comfort zones, but it's a tough one...

    And storyboards for my animation course which I'm really enjoying at the moment. The storyboards themselves are pretty crappy.... There's also the red coloured image of the bridge monster too, just trying out colour schemes for when he's angry haha. Another shot from illustrator with his "parts" assembled together in a sideview for animating... and also a scribble of him acting as a bridge.

    If you guys have any constructive feedback I'd really love to hear it. Thanks muchly!

    John Howe and Alan Lee came to our University tonight to give a talk about their conceptual roles in Lord of the Rings. It was a very inspiring presentation. If I discover that my uni has recorded the session (unlikely, but they've done that sort of thing before) then I'll try and persuade them to get it online for you guys.

    Anyway, was pretty pumped when I came home to do a bit of drawing! Also pretty tired though. Here's a WIP I started pretty late in the eve, so it's not gone very far.

    I tried experimenting with just laying some grey-tone values down first, then adding a "block colour layer" on top and set its mode to Overlay, and try putting colour on top... I kind of like the result, at least so far it appeared better than I thought, but I might start the colour again... Skin tones etc are more likely to desaturate at the highlights and saturate more at the mid-point between light and dark, and this method doesn't really do that (the stronger "snot green" as I like to call it, is an individual colour I brushed over the top, but it's looking a little TOO saturated).

    Any comments on the colour or recommendations etc would be much appreciated. I'm gonna turn in for the night now. Ciao!

    John Howe and Alan Lee? WOOOOOOOOW! That sounds super inspiring and epic

    Aww, poor alien! I really feel sorry for the guy on the bottom. :<

    As for the colouring. Julie Dillon wrote a REALLY amazing b&w-to-colour tutorial, you can see it here. I'd add more colour variations in the shadow area; highlights too. You can switch to L*a*b colour palette/slider things in Photoshop, I find it far more intuitive when I want to go a bit crazy with colour. It gives you really intense results. Tom Scholes wrote quite a few good colour exercises (with theory), so check them out if you want to
