Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
A bit more. The idea is it's made of rock and tree roots
Update. I'm fairly close to calling it a day, not sure I want to colour it. At least not yet. Crits please!
This might be a layout thing; might also be an anatomy thing, but there's something about the crouch of the pally that needs some adjustment. It's just a gut feeling I'm getting by looking at it. The following therefore is to be taken with a grain of salt; it may be that different things are working in combination or maybe it's really just the one thing. I'll let you be the judge since you've already made this very epic scene. Here goes: the whole torso needs to come down some (as in he's leaning forward more) AND/OR his right elbow needs to come "forward" (i.e., either through the shading or the armor itself it appears to recede or draw into the body, which in this position seems awkward) AND/OR his shoulders could be a skosh farther apart, if only to make his bearing more intimidating AND/OR his arms, even taking into account the foreshortening, feel too short. Alas, I'm probably splitting hairs here, but I don't think I'd notice if it wasn't generally a really powerful piece anyway. Love it!
MasterTroglodyte: Thanks for the crit mate. I've been struggling with that. I think mainly I've been looking at it too long and need a bit of distance from the piece. too close to the project Also it's a swine to fing good ref! Though my mate has put me onto Getty Images, crap res but really good for ref
Woah that last concept sketch is really cool! The dynamics are well played! i agree though with the previous poster that the paladins shoulder should be broaden out cos it looks a little drawn in which resulted him in looking a little meek. Awesome sketch though!
Nerferinn: Thanks, I just took a look at your SB and was reminded just how much I have to learn!
Hopefully this is looking better. I through in a big old broadsword hanging from his pack... Why not I thought... But mostly because I liked the sword at his waste but thought it worked better as a short sword
Quick update on my creature, Had an hour or so to kill. Plan to open out the left of the piece as it's to cramped at the mo
A bit more, starting to like the way it's heading
Great updates GEB and you say you only do these in your lunch breaks! haha im still pretty noobish but the paladin/demon pic's forground is pretty damn dark even though it looks like the cracks are glowing wouldnt that illuminate them more than this? hmm. Keep it up looking forward to the next update!
swinging by to say hello good sir.
I really like how you are developing you technique and you process. I am very impressed
Thanks guys, always great to get compliments from peeps you respect. Wish I could upload some of the stuff I'mm working on at the mo I'm pretty proud of the way it's going and am dying for someone to crit all over it! And it means I've had no time to finnish my last two pieces, hopefully I'll get time to get back on those. Though to be honest a bit of time away from a painting can be a really positive thing
Piece for this weeks CHOW, Red riding hood with a basket full of kickass!
I'm not even sure the attachment manager is working but if it is... Here's an update on my Titan war beast. Not really that happy with it, but hey as long as I learn from it
Quick creature sketch and update
Awesome stuff mate! i suck at creature drawing, have no imagination
And thx for stoping by!
Here's a weird one...
Did this the other week for a pitch that didn't happen in the end. But I'm pleased with it all the same as I think my composition is finally starting to get there. I've included my process as I always find it interesting to see peoples process. Hope you like it
GEB seriously that is baller! the movement is great the lighting is consistent and the camera angle is spot on. I can hear the sound of the microphone as the main character dobbs the beast in the face. I am very impressed sir, keep it up!
Awe jeez thanks guys, big ups from two great artists! Spent a fair while chizzling that one out... If you catch my drift... Really trying to work on my composition and drama. Right have been offline on my hols for the pst two weeks. Been working on stuff too but nothing I can show unfortunately as soon as I have something I'll upload. Here's an update of one from above and a leaving card I did for a friend
Cheers Kitty your too good to me!
Quick shitty sketch 15mins

Awesome sketchbook mate, i love your style. That Goblins best friend COW entry is just....
