    Thanks CK! I just might steal your idea and tweak the themes. . I also really enjoy participating in Chow. Its great to have a deadline. Plus seeing what everyone comes up with is inspiring.

    I am planning to work on the Newborn contest. I have an entry in its very beginning stages. I'm also working on another entry to go along with the Chow Newborn contest as well. I have a third idea I've been tentatively working on as well...but everything is in its thumbnail/first sketch stage. Phew! It's a really exciting contest to be a part of, I think, so I'm excited. =).

    Definitely you should enter! I want to see what you come up with.

    Love the grittiness of the two girl paintings. The second one especially. I really love your brushstrokes....

    I like what you are doing with the chow designs. I'd like to see a little more variation in their clothing, but I really like what you have started. Will you be finishing this?

    So many things unfinished....anyways a quick post. IDW Challenge (unfinished, BTW those are colossal rams pulling it..or there will be anyways) and another style sketch.

    Quik- Thanks for the compliment, and as far as the steampunk muscle cars, nope they were supposed to be steampunk bombards...but ehh..as you can see I changed it up.

    Went through and fixed some old images, apparently my monitor needed adjusting. While I was at it, I played around with some of the images, easter eggs for those of you that have seen them already.

    You sketchbook is like candy *_* you are very talented. i want moar!!
    I love the first page--all your traditional work is fantastic

    Also i just use posemaniacs too (which i see you've already found). I'm too lazy to set up a slide show of ref images. but if you ever want to do that--masterfile.com has a ton of great photos for ref.

    The values on your paintings are looking really good man, and I like the looser style you have, welcome break from a lot of the tight stuff that a lot of people (me very much included) seem to get bogged down in. Seems almost painterly (in the traditional sense), but yeah, I like it!
    For your team stuff, those 2 almost portraits in the middle are my favourite, very dramatic and regal. Reminds me of like a Renaissance painting or something, which can only be a good thing!

    Peace
    Dan

    Dan- Thanks Dan! I do lean on the painterly side, but lately I've been trying to push myself to pull it tighter when i need to, for design purposes. I think those studies are actually my favorite, too. I was looking at a lot of Rembrandt at that point.

    I'll be taking a break from illustration stuff and work back into art over the next few weeks, hopefully I'll have some traditional medium stuff posted soon!

    hey man, i love the little woman in the dress, she has such character and narrative to her.
    i think she'd be a really successful character in a game or somethign cuz she has memorable features to her--props on that, best of luck to your team

    (lol and i know what you mean. it's hard finding good ref sites for models with skin xD.)

    great work overall, i think accenting your light just a tad more would help make ur pieces look "cleaner". Your values are ok, and they don't need to be dramatic, but emphasizing light even in a subtle way helps to bring edge variation and make painterly styles look less "messy". just some thoughts

    Hala- I definitely agree with you on the light thing, just about all of portraits need a little more pop to them. looking at them now, having had a day or two of rest, i see a lot more work that needs to be done. I think I'll spent 5-6 days on each one to push them into a more refined state.

    Quike- You're always to kind! You did some great pencil work for teamchow, that elven Valkyrie was sweet!

    Spect- Lol, your crazy. Thanks for the support! You're 100% positivity , the world needs more people like that.

    Started some painting work, nothing to show just yet, but I did start my gesture marathon: 100 gestures a day for one month. I think that'll help whip me back in shape.

    Whoot! Looks like the server is freeing up. This is from last night. 100 gestures, day 2. Starting to have a love hate relationship with Posemaniacs....it seems like almost every other pose is nothing but ass and feet in extreme perspective. I think I'll have to start compiling a library of images.

    and then after a month you won't be able to look at pose maniacs without vomitting. xD

    Good luck with your goal! Look forward to more and some more painting stuffs

    Please don't take it the wrong way, but I preferred the stuff from page one, which is brilliant. It's tough moving over to digital, as I'm finding, and getting that same quality to shine through. Like the gestures.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    Black Spot- Lol, yeah, I agree with you. So far my digital stuff is kind of uh..how do I put it...stupid..uninspired...trivial...etc. I'm actually trying to push back into my personal work, atm. I think my main obstacle on the digital/illustration side, is that I don't love it. I'm approaching it from a very practical "I need money to provide for my family" type of way. So I either need to start caring about illustration or reinvest in my personal work and try to proceed from that point.

    Kind of fell behind on my gestures last night because I was up late painting. But, I'll get back to it, along with some studies I've been doing.

    BTW- I'm cleaning up some of the clutter in this thread, so expect some things to disappear.

    hmm just thinking about these last ones. not bad.
    Going back to that plan of attack I think its pretty good. Although it doesnt look like like you've gotten through most of it yet, I would say don't give up on it.
    In regards to your portraits it looks like you're repeating some facial types over and over again. I would suggest looking very closely at old portrait paintings and mentally recording which details make a likeness unique.

    Holy shit man, very nice studies in that last post! What medium are they if I many ask? I can tell the hand's digital, but I'm not sure about the others!

    Really great work man, I've always liked your painting style, especially the portraits, but I'd like to see a couple of realistic digital portraits from you! Push your self, I think you'll kill it!

    Dig all your teamCHOW stuff to, you guys did great!

    Cheers,
    matt

    Awesome update. I don't think you have tapped nearly enough of your digital illustration potential to even think about whether or not you love it yet. I guess you've been doing traditional for years and thats always gonna be your baby but theres always room for more

    Btw im not CA stalking you, but I stumbled across this:

    I was thinking of starting a training camp thread centered around gesture,anatomy, and color. The curriculum and speed will probably be pretty hardcore, but if you and anyone you can drag along wants to get the ball rolling on something let me know.
    I want in on this.
