    A little monster I did at work. Actually started out as something for work, but we took it all in a different direction. So I thought I would share the little reject here.

    Yo! Great stuff. I really dig you creatures; I like it when they look as if they could actually have evolved on Some Planet. Awesome Mosasaur, by the way.

    Oh, and to answer your question, you can totally critique my stuff to your heart's content whenever the mood strikes. Nothing is better than a good critique.
    I'll try and return the favor with my own brain pan.

    peace out

    oh, here's my sketchbook.

    Also, my website. It would get beat up in a fight.

    Dreamworker - Thanks for the welcome and kind words I appreciate it!

    DiscoSkull - Thanks! I always appreciate crits, and Ill be sure to drop by your sketchbook and leave something helpful (hopefully).

    Even though I missed this daily sketch, I thought I would post it anyway. Some of you may remember it... I only put about half an hour into this thing today cuz I was at work but I still like it somewhat.

    Comments and Crits always welcomed!

    "Cool sketchbook."

    This doesn't generally work for me. I think the man needs some feedback, you guys.

    If you're going for a cartoon feel, you're on the right track. If you want to be hard-edged, here are some things I've been observing:

    Volume, sometimes called shading, though that's not accurate to encompass what I'm typing about, is THE most important element to making shapes pop. Check out Elwell's tutorial. This guy can speak the language!

    Thanks for the great feedback Blue, I just read that link and I will for sure keep it handy from now on. Was there a piece in my sketchbook that really stood out to you that breaks these rules? Im guessing the very first one here seeing as it is the most complete of them all.

    Yo! That Mask-Thing is nifty. Like I said, awesome lines, cool-ass concepts.

    I'd say have have more dynamic poses more often for your creatures, particularly in the head area; most of them here are dead-on profiles. Perhaps make them move a bit more.
    And maybe that Mask-Thing could stick out from the background more?

    I dunno; I'm not the Greatest Ever, but that's my 2cents. Like I said, great stuff.
    Post more!

    oh, here's my sketchbook.

    Dominance War III Sketches

    My original idea was a rider and a mount, specifically a dragon rider type thing... Here are some sketches for that.

    more Dominance War III stugg

    A different idea.



    Big Description:

    Yggdrasil, a god of the forest. A tall and gentle being comprised of the Earth itself. He cares for all living things, and strives to protect that which he loves most: the forests. Something of a myth, Yggrasil is rarely seen by any outside of his realm. He is usually seen as just a collection of old trees and rocks in the middle of a clearing. He burrows down into the Earth, exposing only his backside. His underside is coverd in thick moss and roots, and his limbs are strong as stumps. His stride is long and heavy, digging his fingers into the dirt as he steps. His gaping mouth resembles the flesh eating plants of the tropics, however he is nothing like these carnivores. He is gentle and kind to all living things, big or small.

    War was being waged on all fronts at this time. But soon word spread throughout the land of a new threat. Machines, striking from far worlds in hopes to destroy all life. By the time the fires spread to the forests, Yggdrasil himself stepped foot onto the battlefield. His weapon large, crafted from the very trees and rocks of his land. But within it a light glowed. And with a powerful swing, Yggdrasil thrusted his weapon into the earth and from it life began. Roots and flowers and ferns sprung up all around him. The machines looked on at this new challenger. Quickly the roots and vines sprung up from the ground at their feet, intertwining with their circuits and wires. Any close to Yggdrasil felt the mighty swing of his arm, as his weapon crunched all metal.

    Let me know what you guys think.

    Good stuff! Some of your posts (particularly the latest) remind me of Mike Corriero's art. Is there an influence there?

    Saw your link on the CGS boards and came to take a look over here. Cool stuff! really like what you working on with the DW3 stuff. Your discription for him i like alot. I would think this part would make a great final img

    Cheers and best of luck!
