I am super impressed by you most recent sketch dumps since you regained internet access, you've been really productive, I should take down my internet so I can get some serious work done. Great progress since the very first post, your gesture drawings provide great foundations for your final figures, and i'm really digging your ideas.
Inspiring sketchbook my friend, I can't wait for more!
Taven-Thanks mate grenappels-Wow i am very glad you think so mate .Thanx zou-Thnx comrade !!! AustenFM-hehe thnx mate .Actually i did all these pencils on the side with the digital training.When i didnt had internet i did only the few thumbnails with the devil man with the 4 hands( 2big hands, the fat one etc.)
ok some more progress.The bad thing is i am starting getting bored
will see will see.Another bad thing is that i am never satisfied on the way i render the enviroment surrounding the character,but if i do it in speed-like style it will not follow the detailed style of the character.So i still have to understand another thing to completely level up
Thnx mate .Well if you find out ,or if i find out,it will be nice to share it to each other,since we have the same problem
I did some quick color placing to check somethings here and there.
The "finished creature" can be colored very quick and good.Thats logical because its the part i have worked more than the others.
Anyway will keep researching
Hey, thanks for your comment/advice on my sketchbook. I sort of "ignored" it for the time being, but will completely take it into consideration when I get back to my anatomy studies.
Geeze, I turn my back for a moment (okay, maybe a day or two) and you're popping sketches out of your ears! I still do not know how you do it.
Spider creature: I feel like the rider should be smaller in comparison to the spider-thing, but that's a personal preference. I like the desert-like feel that you have going so far, and is it intentional that the archway framing the scene looks vaugely like faces? If you wanted to emphasize the spider's magic more, a night scene might be better (it would draw attention to the light), but this choice is great too, I'm interested to see where you take it.
Enviro speed-paint: Cool idea. It sort of reminds me of a gigantic circular hut, like something the native american tribes (or one of them, I forget which) would have made, only MUCH larger. You seem to be using alot of warm colors in your works lately; this and the spider-thing (if you ignore the black/grey of the spider itself) have a similar feel to them. It would also be cool if you went back and added detail to your speed paint, and "finalized" them or "cleaned them up."
Person-head: I feel like his eyes are too small, but this might just be because I'm not used to critiquing bald people, so I have the incorrect impresson that his head is too big. I feel like the current rendering almost has a 3-D feel to it, which is interesting.
Person-head full now in blue cape: I feel like the hood of the cape should be thicker and have more weight to it, for a more mysterious effect. It looks a bit lightweight right now. Torso looks good (the belt might be a little high, and could use a touch more shading), and I feel like you over-angled your legs again... Hmm. That does sound pretty critical. I think that this just isn't one of my favorite of your works.
Guy in armor with sword: Now, THIS I like. The subject matter is more interesting to me, and I really like the style you used, where some things overlap in the coloring, like various shades. I think maybe he's a little flat (I.E., the side is drawn correctly for anatomy to prevent flatness, but maybe the straightness of his breastplate counteracts that), but I like it.
Guy in armor with mace: I like the angle on him better then the one in the previous piece, and again, the style you used is pretty awesome. However, I also think that the extra addition to his shoulder guards looks funny. They seem to be too rounded, and too much like half-cylanders. Otherwise, I prefer his color scheme to the other armored guy, the red and gold have a nice effect.
Hope I didn't sound too critical, 'cause that's not at all my intent. You're doing awesome, and it's great to see you continue to put out works, and work with style and with your creativity; you never seem to lack an interesting subject.
