Capital G: Glad you like it, even though the legs are broken ^^°
ImagineTheEnding: Than I achieved what I wanted to. Nice to hear.
Schmendrick: Thx, I still have a feeling of "might have a chance".
DefiledVisions: Thx, Iam experimenting on every project.
DANKA: I like it too.
Ok, here comes a bigger update:
The works from my last semester-project. Done for school and portfolio.
I made book of around 12 pages about poisoneous animals.
All on ps and a little bit of painter, I went to the zoo and saved a lot of photos from the internet ^^
Hey, Germany :-D
What Hochschule are you at?
You are improving a lot during this thread, the Newborn pics are amazing. very original ideas in content and composition.
I can't access the Niefali website btw
I totally enjoyed looking through your sketchbook! Your digital studies are awesome and I really liked the illustrated story about love from page one of your sb. Keep up the good work, I'm looking forward to seeing more.
Hey Vaejoun, Thanks for checking out my SB. I was looking at yours and this thread as well. Really strong animal / nature work, these illustrations above are well done too. Looks like you have plenty of tools in your arsenal, looking forward to watching your development.
Hey this work is great. I especially like the newborn contest paintings. I like the spider creature one the most--that is just fantastic. And the rock guy chiseling a baby is so creative! The outer space one I wish was a little easier to see the woman--I know it sposed to be subtle but people could look right past it.
Another CHOW entry. Though it got a lot of votes, I didnt make it again ^^ And now I really have to start working on another project so I am not sure If I will be able to take part in C(H)OWs in the next time. T__T
And I am desperately trying to get better in Painter XI, I am only used to PS, and Painter is kinda tricky to handle. but I am curious how close to real oil you can get with it.
I really like the Newborn pieces especially the first one. Also I don't think the little red riding hood is too dark. It just adds to the dark and creepy forest feeling.
Also, the last two dinos in the post above are great. There is just enough of that spontaneity and randomness in the color (which, being a lighter earth tone, can more easily blend with the ground to make a more naturalistic toned background) to make the figure and ground have such interesting interactions with one another. They seem lighter than the other ones which have a much heavier feel i.e. the second, fourth and (borderline) first dinos. This is mainly because the dinosaur itself takes up most of the picture plane and that the color is farther from what we would generally perceive as a naturalistic background. The first one's color is close to what I mean by naturalistic in that they are earth tones but they are also more prominent and dark. The second and fourth one's color is less naturalistic and they are by far the heaviest compositions of the set. The third one solves the color issue by having a more constant wash of blue throughout the entire piece. This turns blue into the "naturalistic" color given that the scene is underwater. I think it would be interesting to try out one of the heavier compositions with the aim of incorporating both figure and ground in the way that makes the last two so successful. Keep up the good work.
The words and colors imply so much in the illustrated love story. I love the character designs (especially the little girl when she jumps into the puddle!), and how they contrast with the background, makes it so fun to look at
I really think the new style of dinos has something. It is good that each dino have his own color, it makes them unique. I just think that the outlines on some of those (like on the 3rd one) are much stronger than the rest, which makes it a little out of style, but i think you know that and it's matter of time to get it right. Also liked the selection of colors and composition style on the 27# frames. The way you create levels and dynamicankles is great.
I really like the toad illustrations. Colors and detail are very good. I would not sacrifice detail for speed. I know you have to get more done to make more money, but, it could cost you in the end.
@adelofsilvermoons: Thank you, sadly I didnt find a publisher who liked it. The story may be a bit short though . @knut-: Thanks, I am always trying to get better @Mah ' Crub: I hope I can do both ^^ Good quality in short time. Or just getting paid better XD
Finally something new: From the actual COW:
A biological assasin creature.
