    Shambok: Thanks!

    AustenFM: Hah, me making YOU feel lazy? You're the one that updates at least 2, 3 times a week. I only get around to once a week.

    Speaking of, here's that weekly update! Usual sort of stuff: lizards, monsters, and studies from life. Guess which is which! (hint: The toad man would NOT be from life.)

    man..killer studies you seem to have a good grasp of anatomy and form, it comes to me as a surprise that you've mistaken the proportions and the position in space in the last sit seated figure

    Andres333: Thanks. The proportions seem fine to me, the torso looks a little small compared to the limbs, but that's the only thing I see that looks glaringly wrong. The position of it could be better though.


    Very small update - I'll do a sketch dump this weekend. In the meantime, here's a zbrush sculpt done during two lunch breaks. I want to point out (just because I enjoyed it a lot) that the scales are done by hand, no alphas used. I'm planning to do a polypaint of it and do a proper render of it...once I figure out how to do that.

    I like those two characters there, the one with the curly hair and the other one with a big forehead. They seem British somehow. Wonder why?

    Theodor: Haha, probably because I was watching Sherlock when I was drawing on that page.

    Came home tonight and decided to try and get the Lizardman out of the way just so I can focus on other stuff. Here's the finished polypaint and render. It's not perfect (and I don't have a spiffy renderer other than Zbrush for it,) but I like a lot of things in this.

    Thanks, Egg0. I'm trying to find a better renderer than Zbrush's standard one. Anyone have suggestions on what might be a good solution?

    Here's a little sketchdump - I've been busy with freelance and daytime job stuff, so the time spent sketching for myself has decreased a bit...

    AustenFM: Oh thanks man! Zbrush is a pretty great tool...some people have trouble with it, but once I figured out the keys I was like a fish in water...just comes easily for me. If you ever pick it up and have questions, send me a PM or something. There's a bit of a learning curve, but once you get past it the program just opens up.

    So I have pretty much neglected this month in terms of uploading stuff. I've been sketching/sculpting/etc., it's just that I haven't had the time to sit down and get it all on the computer (which is a shame, because I have some life drawing stuff I'm rather proud of. God-damn light turned on for me with that stuff.)

    In the meantime, may I present an illustration I finished up earlier this week, plus a step-by-step of it. Any questions, feel free to ask them, I love talking shop.

    GeniusFetus: Thanks man! I love Derek Thompson's work, so that's a mighty fine compliment.

    bobby1991qw: Thanks!

    Sorry for the lack of updates...this always tends to happen around the holidays, work ramps up a bit, family visits happen, and I get sucked into personal projects. Incidentally, my posting always drops off around now...let's try to break that habit!

    Here's what I've been working on as of late - my entry for Artorder's Princess of Mars challenge. I'm happy with how it's coming along, but there's still much to be done...I'll be posting the final in a few days. Right now the process is pretty much similar to the previous post, for any curious.

    And it's done. I like how it turned out, except I couldn't find a great solution for John Carter...next time it won't be a problem I imagine, it's just this time it kept eluding me at every turn.

    Thanks, D.C..

    A rare sight for my postings - life drawing stuff! These are gathered from the past couple of months.

    Alternative: Thanks! You're in luck, because that was the plan.

    This is the 2nd batch of cherry-picked life drawings, and possibly my last post for the year, what with the holidays imminent. I'll see if I can squeeze one more posting in though.

    Hey, first post of the new year! Not a lot to show this time, some shoddy sketchbook pages and an illustration I'm working on for a challenge over at ArtOrder.

    I wish we were on tumblr or dA so I didn't have to say anything to let you know how in awe I am. I just love everything in this thread, but asides from that I can't find the words.

    keep it up.

    Loving the work in here. Your designs are always surprising and evocative in their characterizations.

    PerpetualInsomnia: I actually do have a DA account, but I only really post up finished work over there, as opposed to here where it's sketches and finished stuff. It's the same as my name here though, so it's an easy enough find.

    The Fez: Thanks! Lately I've been feeling like my designs have gotten a bit stale...that's something I'm planning to change up this year.

    Little update of sketches and more in progress stuff of a current piece.

    amazing sketchbook!

    I love your comic influenced style. Great ideas, unbelievably good expressions of the characters and your colors just harmonize perfectly!

    The only thing I can think of is that you could experiment more often with perspective in your rendered illustrations. I guess especially #180 would benefit from a slightly more extreme low angle perspective. But hell... that´s just nitpicking

    Waiting on new updates...

    Kiba: Thanks! I'm in agreement about the perspective thing...I tend to go very safe on that sort of stuff, and I'm not proud of it. Time to shake that up for sure.

    My finished ArtOrder piece, as well as some sketches for the next challenge, and some random doodles...did not know John C. Reilly was in Gangs of New York...

    Ran into some massive speedbumps with the Lyssa challenge and wasn't able to finish it on time. At this point I'm fed up with the piece that I need a breather from it before I return and actually finish the damn thing, so in the meantime I'm off to do other projects!

    Here are some sketches accrued from this past month.

    I wasn't able to get a good photo of this last night...lately I've been playing with Golden Open Acrylics, just to see how they handle. So far, I like 'em. They go on to the paper pretty thin, so there's not a whole lot you can do working-wise with them once you place it down (not something I'm really troubled by,) but they do stay open for a pretty damn long time on the palette, which I enjoy.

    So, a doodle of some trees, and some skull studies.

    This is what happens when I don't update in a week or so...MEGA UPLOAD!!!

    Sketchbook doodles, and some faffing around in Photoshop. Lately I've been drawing horses, trying to figure out how that stuff works...
