    Hey there,
    I like the pen and marker work, especially the cowboy. I'd like to do some storyboards myself. Probably not much money in it though.

    Whit Brachna

    I just recently purchased the 'Whit Brachna Environment Speedpaints Volume 1' from MB, and am posting this message to recommend the series. It's good stuff! Here is the link: http://media.massiveblack.com/downloads.html#whit3
    Highly motivational, I have these dry seasons, so when rain like this shows up I really appreciate it. Just passin' the love along.

    Hey caleb, nice stuff here. The last two post especially are showing improvement.

    I think you could greatly improve your work if you worked to give each piece a discernible focal point(s). As they are, many of your paintings have the same treatment of colour, value, and contrast throughout. My eye doesn't know where to go. In terms of visual hierarchy, the background seems to be just as important as the characters. Try to play down less important elements - make them less saturated with colour and with less contrast. Objects in the back of images have less defined edges and less detail than those in the foreground. Do some research on cues of depth perception and try to keep these in mind when you paint.

    I hope that helps. Again, you are showing huge improvement with every post, so you're clearly on the right track. Keep it up, and best of luck!!

    OmertA: In Photoshop, I select the layer or individual portion of an image and then apply 'Motion Blur' to it. You'll find that under 'Filter>Blur>Motion Blur'. You can also use 'Radial Blur' and it's 'Spin' or 'Zoom' blur method. You might also want to play around with creating masks for more defined selection areas Thanks for visiting my SB and let me know if I can help out in any way!

    old project

    Here are some screenshots of an old project. The project was for an independent film called Elements. They wanted me to do the main titles. The whole thing turned into a nightmare and eventually fell through, but as the contract states I am allowed to show my work, here it is.

    interesting stuff, however i think you use the soft brush to generously.

    Fun video you got. It was very entertaining. I think you overdid the sharpening of the edges though and it really looked better in grayscale imo. Keep it up man!

    another piece of junk

    Krato: Thanks for the crit! I don't know why, but getting used to digital is kicking my butt. I always over do it in some way or another.

    zelda geek: Thanks a bunch! Yeah, I'm on this Unsharp Mask trip right now and fairly uninspiring colors. Someday I hope to find my happy place in the digital world.

    I hate this. Looks like a Tickle Me Elmo doll drew it.

    Hey Caleb!

    Glad to see you have a presence here on CA.
    Haven't seen you since FS, saw your website and your pic, wow! You look fantastic! WTG.

    Anyways, loving your sketches and concepts. Quite a move away from the western traditional stuff.

    Fantastic job.
    You have the ability to merge real-surreal ancient-modern and professional with an original technique.
    Good job. (sorry for my english)
