    Mike Buktus: Thank you sir! It's always humbling to get complimented from fine talent like yourself.
    DestinyApocalypse: Thanks!
    Dragonspit: Haha, thanks! I focused mostly on comics in school, so I hope I picked up a trick or two...

    So I took the demon drawing from above into Painter, and actually got it done! Considering how frustrated I get at painting, this was a pretty calm experience, and I'm happy with how it turned out. I'm thinking of putting some markings on it though...thoughts?

    Decided to take what I learned from the last painting and revisit some previous sketches to apply the skills...so I restarted the Alien dinosaur. Didn't like the color I was going with before, so here's some color comps of it to get started.

    Here's a paint study, based off of Rien Poortuliet and Wil Huygen's book Gnomes. Love the illustrations in it, and I learned quite a bit while using one of Rien's painting's as reference.

    Would love feedback from the folk around here, slowly learning the ins and outs of Painter...definitely seem to care for it more than Photoshop for bringing stuff to completion...

    I'm loving all the animal designs. Most of them are quite odd and almost alien in their appearance, yet have a believable qualitiy to them. I could easily imagine how they'd behave if they were real.

    Have you ever considered incorporating speech into your comics?

    My knowledge of scientific biological transmogrifications is only outmatched by my zest for Kung-Fu treachery.

    DethKlaus: Actually, all the comics I've posted so far do have dialogue to go with them - but because it's not my IP's (collaborating with a writer,) it doesn't feel right showing that off witht he art. Thanks for the comments 'bout the creatures! Someday I think I'd want to make a fictional bestiary book, like "The Wildlife of Star Wars" or "Arthur Spiderwick's Field Guide to the Fantastical World Around You." Those sorts of books always interested me tons.

    Destiny Apocalypse: Thanks! I'm hoping to land some sort of storyboard job soon...the woes of being unemployed.

    Kidult: Thank you!

    I participated in the CoW challenge this week, where the topic was "Shadow and Flame." So here's my entry, which I called "Donovan's Basilisk". You can see the full description, as well as all the other great entries over at CoW forum here.

    Been waaaaaaay too long since I last posted, mostly because most of the stuff I was working on was for hired projects and all that...

    Here's two personal pieces though, so yeah! One was a fun little test in painter (trying out some different methodology), and the other is linework for an illustration I'm working on.

    Still working on the illustration from last post, usually during the little bits of freetime I have not doing one random freelance or another...

    I was testing out a new ink brush in photoshop (to save some time/money printing out bluelines and all that) and I decided to put it through it's paces and make an illustration with it. Later on, I wound up coloring the thing...

    the creatures, scetching, proportions and stuff are really good
    though you need some more work on your use of colors and rendering, but im sure youre aware of that nonetheless and with those awesome skills you have this should be no problem at all!
    cant wait to see more!!!

    Jackpot: Thanks! I love the idea of creature design, and basically making new worlds from the ground up...I think SimLife is to blame for a lot of that...

    Catatafish: Thank you! You are correct, colors/rendering is one of my weaker points (never really gave it much push until the past month, month and a half.) Hopefully that will change soon enough.

    Wheeee, a new update!

    Lately I've been packing up stuff around the apartment in preparation of a move that's coming up, which has unfortunately creeped into my time to do any real work. But I've been keeping busy by at least working steadily on comic pages! All of these pages were done for a webcomic I run with a writer named Chris Sager. If you're curious at all about checking it out, feel free to pop on over to www.thelastisland.com.

    These were pencilled traditionally, and then the first was inked with rapidos, while the rest are a mix of brush and photoshop. Enjoy!

    Been a loooooong time since I updated this. That'll be changing for sure.

    Here are some pages out of the ol' sketchbook from this past week. Hopefully the quality jumped since the last time I posted!

    Yeah Buddy! Good to see you back, your lines definitely look more confident from the last time i saw, and it looks like you're grasping the form of your figures much better. Looking good, those hat designs are fun. Cant wait to see more of what you've been working on!

    Thanks, Austen. I feel pretty shitty about neglecting this (and other haunts of the internet) for some time, so here's to a turnaround of that.

    This was something that started off as a couple streaks of color, and then it just went from there. It ended up being an exercise in using the photo filter for shadows instead of a multiply layer...it's interesting. I think I like it more than the multiply layer, though I'd have to twiddle around with it more.

    Wow, I really like your creatures! Could you explain a bit more about this 'photo filter for shadows' thing? I haven't heard of that before...

    Personally - i like that beast with red horns up it's bottom )) I hope you had a good year while not updating. Last piece is sweet. I can see your design in some animation, like "Monsters Inc" )

    @Sycra: The photo filter thing was something I picked up from this little tutorial: Painting Via Adjustment Layers.

    The basic idea is using the adjustment layer in conjunction with a mask to fill the piece with all of your shadow, then you go in and paint in your lights...there's a good while where it looks like ass and you think you're doing it wrong, but once you have about 60% of your lights figured out, it starts to come together.

    @Seraph Fawkes: Thanks! I have no clue what I was thinking with that fellow...somewhat stream of conscious, I imagine. And you're probably the 1200th person to mention the animation bit to me...I reckon that's sign, eh?

    Wow, I really love your SB. Love your creature designs and your digital painting. You draw like an animator - I can imagine your drawings popping off the page and coming to life. Great stuff.

    Gorgonzola very cool cartoon characters and facial expressions. Something I need to work on it. You are able to execute it from start to finish and define a solid pose.
    Keep it going!
