    garzonious: Thanks. Yeah, he was the best there ever was.

    towy: Thankya!

    PippinIncarnate: Haha, thanks. I love your drawings, so you can expect the 'honor' of my presence in the future.


    This is just another environment sketch. Environments have been my weakness for a long time, so I'm trying to do lots of them.

    Here's a sketch I've been working at here and there since yesterday. It's still pretty crappy, but I'm forcing myself to post unfinished things.

    This is a really great concept: http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1253718038
    You can get more space into the image by making the nearer stairs bigger. They shouldn't be getting so much frontal light either, should be more from the side I think, more darkness in that region more mystery. Would be cool to see more exploration of the architecture, it gives a wierd, and interesting effect to see some hints of greek architecture.
    That last goblin on the last page has a real promising design. Really liking the curved sword idea.

    Rushlord: Thanks a ton! You're motivating me, too, haha.

    Armando: Hey! Thank you. As usual, your advice is very sound.



    Here are a couple of 40k-ish doodles inspired by Smokenmirrors, who draws space marines like no one else.

    Hey thanks for the advice, you're absolutely right. The thing for me is, it's not just a question of knowing, but being able to put it to practice. Those first heads up above are brilliant, it's good to see you practice what you preach. One thing about the Sargent studies though, their mouths seem a bit skewed. The first one, her nose is to the left of center of the mouth, and with the second one, her mouth is tilted about half a degree counterclockwise.

    Excellent work though, it shows a clear understanding of form, modelling, blending and rendering, color, and light. Keep it up and get imaginative!

    TASmith- thanks, and you're right on all counts. A lot of things are off about those Bouguereau (not Sargent, actually) studies; the mouths being the most glaring. MUST PRACTICE MOAR ACK

    And I do need to be more imaginative. But in my tradition of drawing cheesy pictures, here's a quick nazi.

    Rushlord: Thankya.

    Mitze: Thank you v much!

    Drd: Thanks a ton!



    Don't have a lot to show atm. I've been drawing a lot of hands and anatomy studies, but all on paper and none really interesting enough to show, even if I could.

    So here's a soda can on my desk. I almost never paint from life, but Janaschi's sketchbook got me really inspired to do more of it. It's haaard for me, but I'm learning, I think.

    mariusz: Thanks man.

    Rushlord: Hey! Yeah, I need a scanner. Moar life studies on the way, yep.

    Joey-b: Thanks!

    jatherip: Thanks. I think it took about 5 hours. But I'm pretty slow and inefficient. This October marks about the 1 year anniversary of me even starting digi-painting; better artists would probably do it faster.

    Here's my Nibru rendition:

    Rushlord: No, no photos; just painted in to Photoshop. Thanks, btw.



    I feel like I should be drawing more naked people. Everyone else is doing it. And it's good practice.

    And here's my homeless fighter from El Coro's contest. I don't really like how it turned out. One more bad drawing out of the way, I guess.

    Couple of fast photo-studies. I was looking at some of Justin Sweet's work; he paints metal so colorfully.

    Your photo studies are looking good, keep it up.

    I'm pretty sure the Bay12 thread is dead so I'm probably going to shift my work over here.

    Nice sketchbook. Work on construction and sillouettes for character, really important in the beginning. I this will help you with the character work. Design and Composition are most important when doing environments, atmosphere, perspective, scale, color, mood come secondary, although it is important to creating successful powerful imagery. Its all about initial read and also creating something interesting to look at. You don't suffer as much on the character end with design, in my opinion. You can always polish that though. You have great understanding with color from what I am seeing. You can see overall, it just taking what you see and twisting it to making it your own; that is the goal, of course. (Here I go again with this cliche' analogy.) Remember that a poor foundation on a house, leads to a poorly built house that may that almost always falls. Think in terms of that when doing your illustrations, character designs, etc. Give the contructions some extra love sauce. Life drawing is the solution. Plan your stuff out. Pretty much it. You're on your way, keep painting. I will keep watch as well.

    You have a beautiful blending style and your control of value is soooo great.

    But others have said that you need to work on your construction. Your faces have alot of "drawn from pictures" look to them. That is to say they are great representations, but of flat images so they look wrong. They look Beautiful... but not quite right.


    I wish i had an ounce of your control of value and hue and blending. Either you're a natural at that or you've practiced a ton. Either way, i commend you. If you learned from a specific book or tutorial i'd love to see it!

    BTW thanks for posting that link to CG bootcamp. That was great!

    Are you watching the chiustreams too? Those are great... I didn't do a fighting hobo though. i should have.

    Hay comments! Thanks, guys.

    Spreggo: Thanks!

    Rushlord: Thanks; I'm glad you think I'm improving.

    Beelow: Good advice, thanks. Yeah, skipping that laborious construction phase is a bad-habit that I've been trying to break.

    majortom: Thanks a ton!

    Jonny Dark: Thanks for the kind words. It's odd that you say my faces have a "drawn from pictures" look, because, aside from the couple of obvious photo-studies I've posted, these are non-reffed. So if they look off, it's for some other reason.

    Lateman: Thanks! Yep, that's the idea.

    OmertA: Thankya!

    Axel.s: Haha, do you mean gnhaa as in good or gnhaa as in bad?

    AlexTooth: Thanks, and thank you for the stars as well. I will try to use them wisely.


    I've been meaning to update this. I tend to finish things, decide they suck, and then throw them away instead of posting. And on top of that, I updated my video-card drivers the other day, and now a lot of the colors (and values, gah) on old pieces look off. Fucking hell.

    But here's some new crap.
