    stuffs and stuffs

    I'm going to update this thing at least once a day. Maybe twice now that I'm freelancing instead of slaving away along with the other 9-5 web design demons.

    Two environment speed paintings from yesterday:

    new painting

    Just started this one. Random brush test that ended up showing possibility. I'm trying to branch out into new scenes and color schemes. My characters tend to recede into the background, so I'm trying to force these guys to pop out a bit.

    That skeez in the foreground is fairly fugly. I'll have to give her a good work over.

    Two quick ones. The first is an update to the prior post. I'm the kind of guy that can't go further on a painting until I get the focal point down, so I worked over the girls face and put in a dead of night sort of rim light to add some drama. Second is just a couple of anatomy speed studies (15ish minutes each). The first one might make an alright finished painting.

    Feel free to offer any suggestions, critiques, whatever. I haven't really nailed down what I'm going to do for the fore ground on that first painting.

    Thank ya. I'm just starting to learn theory proper (color, perspective, value, etc) and its going pretty OK. It's pretty humbling to come to this site and realize how much you suck. heh

    Just a quick update. Two environment practice paintings and the current progress on the painting I've been dabbling with daily. I'm pretty happy with the progress on it thus far.

    Something a little different.

    Here is the full album artwork for a local band that I occasionally work with, Matgo Primo. Sonically, the album is all over the place. Thematically, it comes together pretty well- well enough that basing the artwork on the themes resulted in a design that the band felt properly represented their sound. Good enough for me ;P

    In order below is:
    1) front cover
    2) back cover
    3) front + back, spread
    4) front cover, reverse side
    5) back cover, reverse side (cd tray)
    6) der cd

    Hope you dig.

    There's some really good stuff here. I'd say your anatomy could use a bit of practice, but your landscapes are gorgeous, and the cd design is so very nice.

    Crit: The inside cover, with the face upchucking, doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the design. You may want to tone that page down, less is always more. Rather than having something crazy going on with every part of the case, a less busy page thrown into the mix might calm everything down and let your eyes rest.

    Thats my input. Sweet stuff.

    hah. i just started drawing landscapes (with ref) a few weeks ago and i've been painting characters (from memory) forever. pretty good sign that i need to pull out the old anatomy books and relearn a few things.

    very true on the cd design comment. i picked up on that, but not until after i had it approved by the band. so i threw together that cdtray illustration, which used a bit of a human figure to try and pull everything together. you are correct, though.

    thanks for the insight!

    Just a couple updates from this morning. The first is a speed painting based on the awesome Japanese street mag "FRUiTS" (her arm was hidden like that). The second a detail shot of my ongoing (slowgoing) current painting.

    Two more for today. I figured since I quit my 9 to 5 to paint, I might as well do it ;P

    The first is a generic ancient priest, with his hair flowing off into a smoky trail. The second is a screen shot of the Ewok village, lazily painted up quick like. Not happy with that one. I'm going to flatten it and paint over.
