    Cool stuff you got here. I think in the latest update the character gets somewhat lost in the background. I'd also like to see more details in the weapon and the fire, since that is what i seem to focus on most, and that is where the least detail is.

    Maybe you can steal some of sparth's fire.

    Awesome stuff man!I'm diggin your style.

    Some of your stuff reminds me of George Pratt(one of my faorites).You didn't happen to go to school at Pratt did you?

    goodies:

    Don't know why it took me so long to do this:
    AmishCommy's Studio Journal - Update 07.26.05 (poopy environment)





    and he're a preview of the new Sniper sketches i'm werking on:
    AmishCommy's Studio Journal - Update 07.26.05 (poopy environment) AmishCommy's Studio Journal - Update 07.26.05 (poopy environment)



    I'm way too lazy to bother with perspective so to make it werk and keep the spontanaiy i modeled some simple shapes in Maya and then used them as a guide for these sketches. Here's an example:

    I'm seein red x's from your Mckean inspired pic down-but I
    CAN see them when I type my post, under my reply box!:confused:

    Anyway cool pics.Your black&white mechas remind me in a way of an old Argentine artist named Alberto Breccia.Especially his L'eternaute stuff.

    Sniper stuff is lookin sweet too.Um, you're way better than me, but, why don't you just throw down a freehand perspective grid instead of makin a 3d scene?!

    Keep dem posts comin!

    mr. smith - thanks.
    I'd vote for nader if I can be guaranteed that kerry will beat bush.

    Silvertone - i'd like to check out this Alberto Breccia fellow. Do you have a link to his werk online? is there any werk of his online?

    There's several reasons for me not doing freehand perspective. Although i know all the rulles and tricks of perspective, I never trully practiced them and thus i really suck at it. That and i don't have the patience for it. Plus all them lines get really confusing. and worst of all is the erasing. I HATE eracing. I'd rather start something from scratch than erace. I mean i do it when neccesary but i don't like it much. But there's another reason for faking the funk using maya. Besides practice with a program that may help in the job search, when you create a scene in maya you can always move it around and find a good shot, a better shot, or new way to illustrate a scene. its really a great tool.





    ok as for my productive sunday (yeah right) here's something wierd. I know it doesnt look like anything special but this was somewhat hard to do. I went shopping for some art supplies today (there was a sale) and i got some graphite sticks. I took the HB one in my left hand and the 3B one in my right and tried drawing with both hands at the same time. the 3B in my right hand is the darker line.

    This first one was fairly easy beacuse if i think about one type of hand movement and move both hands at the ssame time i'm able to get a pretty symetrical image (took me just over a minute for this one):
    AmishCommy's Studio Journal - Update 07.26.05 (poopy environment)




    This second image was a lot harder. it is really hard to control 2 seperate hands doing seperate tasks and seperate movements at the same time. I took my time with this one (about 5 minutes). once again the darker line is the right hand and the lighter is the left (in retrospect i probly should have used 2 seperate colors to illustrate my point):
    AmishCommy's Studio Journal - Update 07.26.05 (poopy environment)

    A long time ago i saw some learning chanel program where this asian monk used to write caligraphy with both hands as a method of meditation. He wrote not just different words but different sentences at the same time (all were part of the same poem or something). the most amazing of all, becides the beauty and preciceness of his caligraphy, was when he used 5 brushes utilizing his hands, legs and mouth to write 5 different lines of text.

    i am slack masta....havent updated in a while.

    I've been getting wednsdays off work consistantly for the past few weeks so I made myself try my hand at oils again. still not happy with the results. I'm trying to paint some simple landscapes just to get away from my "comfort zone" My 2 major chalanges here is the fact that i'm still trying to figure this whole oil paint thing out. and the other is that i'm using a tiny canvas (6x8) which i'm not used to. i like to work large.

    well here's the damage:


    this one took about an hour to do. for me anything over 20 minutes becomes a big mess and looses its spontinaity. my major issues with this is that the values are mostly the same. makes everything too muddy.
    AmishCommy's Studio Journal - Update 07.26.05 (poopy environment)

    this one took just over 15 mins: i got tired of it real quick
    AmishCommy's Studio Journal - Update 07.26.05 (poopy environment)

    round 2: just over an hour. dissaster
    AmishCommy's Studio Journal - Update 07.26.05 (poopy environment)


    this one i did last week. took just over an hour. same problems as the week before.
    AmishCommy's Studio Journal - Update 07.26.05 (poopy environment)

    here's the B/W image off my camera. Values are almost non existant.
    AmishCommy's Studio Journal - Update 07.26.05 (poopy environment)



    i'll try it again this week hopefuly with better results.

    if anyone has any advice or pointers i'm all ears.

    ok. i know this is cheap... but i'm posting to salvage this thread from oblivion.

    my internet connection has been giving me shit for the past 2 weeks and my server is giving me shit right now. I want to add some images but i'm having problems uploading them. so tomorrow i'l rock the super update. I have a ton of stuff to put up.







    oh by the way. how do i go about having this thread switched to the daily sketchbooks thread?
