Interesting , ia mcurious how will be when u finish it
nick nicky beats :U your creatures are always wonderful to look at. it seems like your most comfortable field to work in i really dig the specular highlights on this sucker ^^ very convincing.
all i can say is to keep studying and working the imagination ~
Wow man, you're working hard. Keep it up and you'll definitely be noticing the improvement.
Nothing much to say, maybe you could throw in a few more studies here and there? Either way it's looking good and you seem to be on the right track. Cool stuff.
Sivonja - thanks man!
teapo - thanks alot man!!
LtPlissken - ha thanks man! i actually posted that at like 2:30 this morning.. i aint finished yet!!
monstertree - thanks man!!
Untouched24 - thanks dude! yea i think im gonna to some studies tonight. maybe start to participate in that screen cap thread.
decided to color this one...
Fuck nicky, you're tearing shit up lately. you're making my bladder weak, i need to really get my game together. Really awesome work the past coupla' pages. The jellyfish/diver image reminds me a lot of a Fear Agent cover Tony Moore did --> http://tonymooreillustration.com/gal...?g2_itemId=489
Maybe looking at that could give you some new ideas for coloring and fleshing it out.
Keep it up sir, you're a beast!
AustenFM - haha thanks dude! and holy shit, that cover is almost exactly what i started.. i guess im not as original as i thought ha.
uuuuuhhhggg i feel retarded from lack of sleep and painting a hole through my heart. i cant be stopped though! heres my first screen capture. from the movie The Wolfman, with Benicio Del Toro. when i compare it to the original, it looks like shit. thats why im not posting the original in here haha.
Nice study man!! On that space marine looking dude, I think the piece might benefit if you showed more definition of the underlying planes and forms of his actual suit, rather than all of the surface details. It feels a little difficult to read a focal point. But I love that your pushing the mechanical design details, it's always a tricky thing to get right. Keep it up man you're making some sweet progress!!
Wow dude!, you keep getting so much better! That character and screen cap are both awesome. Now I better get back to work before I get left in the dust.
They put Benicio Del Toro in an icy water.
Suffer little Benicio !!!
Freeze to death you evil little Benicion!!!!
You dipped him real nicely in the ice cold water.
Suffer BEnicion !!!!
Jasper_ - thanks a bunch man! that really means alot! yea, i understand what your saying about the functional details. im still not very good at mechanical things, i should start studying it though.
bpic - haha doubtful.. thanks tho dude!!
LtPlissken - whoa there big guy! did Benicio and you have some personal vendetta that i should know about? haha
Farquad - thanks man!! yup im working on those!
couple sketches... the first is for a possible banner to go on a daily sketch blog, and the second was some demons in pencil for a friend.
You're making huge strides as of lately (3-5 pages), the comic-style illustration is starting to fall in place. Your digital pieces are starting to look great, but you need to work on some landscapes, as well as some anatomy..posemaniacs, you know.
sorry if i came off harsh, i like when people are honest with me, all in the spirit of getting better
Medusoid - thanks man! -also, i have actually drawn him quite a bit, its been a long time though, maybe ill do some more sketches of him.
Dope Fiend - thanks! and i totally agree with you, i do need to work on my anatomy and landscapes ALOT! so i decided to start doing more anatomy studies..
Partisan - yes, yessss..... ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!!!!!
some anatomy! HOLY SHIT! paradigm shift in this bitch!
Hey NickyB. sorry to impose on you like this and I'm not even sure if you have the time man but would you mind checkin out this guy's SB? He uses Painter (i think) and I have no skill in that software to speak of so I said I'd try to find someone who knew what they were doing, and since your one of the best I know I came to you
I told him that allot of the people I know are prob busy so no worries if you jus don have the time
Great updates, I love your self loathing humor XD
k... some more stuff. this is a color job that i did on one of AustenFM's comic pages. the lines, and ink are ALL him!!! i only did the colors.
ps. GO and look at his work! youll poop straight through your jeans.
I may throw up now but beautiful work man you never cease to amaze me and thats saying something cuase I have the attention span of a semi brain damaged gerbil... where am I? HOW DID I GET HERE!? AND WHO IS THIS AMAZING ARTIST?!?!?
Imo, your anatomy is amazing already. Always good gestures, expressions, movement, etc. What I think you could improve on is composition in regards to value. For example the banners is 796 are great in the linework stage, but the values are too similar throughout--very similar middle greys. More contrast will make not only the forms of the figures more believable, but also create a more attractive visual. The sea dweller, FMA piece, landscape thumbnails, and dragon-slug are getting there, but still seem a bit flat. Perhaps looking at Rembrandt will be good: his paintings focus so much on value and light.
those comic panels, and the muscle sketches....just fucking sick brah!
J: Don't call my escorts hookers.
B: Mom's still got it!
J: I don't date whores!
L: This objectification of women has to stop!
M: It's just mom and whores...
