Been sculpting rock-like stuff most of the week, is so much fun =) Also done some drawing, mostly proportion studies, will post them up if you guys really want to see =) Thank you for the comments and crits guys, I really appreciate the feedback, gonna improve onit! =) See you guys again soon =)
thought i need to post a comment in here.
Finally something familiar in 3D to me. xD
I have tried to retexture a few items once in the Oblivion Construction set. I found it very interesting although it took me some hours of frustration to get into the process.
keep up the great 3D work and also i'm happy everytime I see new sketches here.
Sorry I haven't been updating you guys on my stuff, but Uni takes stupid amounts of my time =( Been busy with 3d, check my blog if you are interested =)
Tomorrow morning I have mid term assessment, praying for a pass tbh, I really would hate to repeat anything.. =)
See you guys again soon (hopefully!) =)
Eightball - Thank you for the advice and tutorial =) I'll try out working from middle values for a few pieces sure =) That is a nice tutorial btw, I particularly like how much control you have with saturation, will give this a try =) Thank you muchly =)
Zou - Aww thank you Zou, your kind words are very inspiring =) Thank you muchly =)
Lt Plissken - Lull.. you are so funny, thank you for making me laugh and I hope your comics work is going nicely =)
Ricardo Robles - Heeey, going ok'ish, I'm trying to do an illustration every weekend, looked at some Graciano works and will keep trying =) Thank you for the compliment =) Have a great year =) Cheers =)
Lightship69 - Lull, I'm happy to hear you like the lace =) Thank you muchly =)
JephyrX - Thank you Jeff! =) I know they are great to draw to actually, watched them so many times too =) Also have the 'Art of' books and I read those like all the time.. so amazing and inspiring =) Cheers =)
Good going dear with some more practice you can do it much better . Good Luck.
that creature sketch with the jaws is real nice! I also like the atmosphere shown in the 3d work. I'm still all for traditional, so I can't fully relate to 3d stuff right now, (and I'm not too concerned about that really, with all the "advancement" going on in the industry right now). You know me, equip with a vast trad technical understanding before transforming in the 3d realm. That's just my philosophy. Programs change, traditional tools don't!
but that's just my talk! never-mind dat! KEEP GOING MAN!
Shew.. got 6 weeks left until graduation, yeeeeeaaaah, can't wait! =)
Been working on the Undersea, will show you guys soon the finish =) Had my final presentation at university as well,
was pretty cool that people liked my stuff there.. but I still can't be complacent, still lots of work to do =) Cheers Guys =)
Lux Aeturna - Oh hey Stells! =) I didn't know you were on here too.. =) What a surprise! =)
Poetryman - Hey man =) Ah that's qwl.. well I'm pretty okay with using anything really, I enjoy both now =) Cheers for the support man =)
You are handling the values just like Schumacher
handled his first childhood elevated semi conducted vehicle.
You are doing great and you are getting stronger.
Maybe her hair is looking a bit pasted on, cause of the
lack of shadow underneath.
Okay so it's Easter, got 3 weeks now until we start back again =) Nearly finished lighting on Undersea =)
Also gotta work on my last uni project, maybe a monster/gun/super chick or some shit =)
Here's some leaked Doom 4 screenies if you interested..
God I love that game =) Looking forward to Diablo 3 as well.. and guess what, it comes out on my birthday, WAAAAA! =)
Vritra - Aww man thx's =) Yip, 3d helps loads, it's only half the story though, knowing about lighting and shadow is just as important imho.
Haha, epic man, do you mind if I ask, what you thinking of doing after uni?
I'm doing Game Art and Animation, took animation for my first year, and that helped loads too =) Doing 3d art mostly now =)Still have a lot to learn tho,
tonnes of stuff I just don't know... =) Have a good weekend man =)
jablar - Sweet man, thx's a bunch =) Sure I'll work on abit more contrast there =) Thank you for the feedback =)
LtPlissken - Haha, thank you for the compliment man, Schumacher is a master though, I'm just a welp! =) Sure, will work on better shadow,
in this case the shadow would be very much to the left, I decided to leave it out a bit as it was distracting.. but I appreciate your feedback and
will improve on it in future pieces =)
I love a good wander through your book mate Its always interesting, The girls look great but I would have preferred them down the page rather than across the page because I'm lazy and hate scrolling around.
The underwater stuff is high class man pure and simple, the drop off for the light is spot on too I rather liked that.
I got a feeling that the female portrait in #1446 is
missing a bit of the top of her head, or the hair
is just a bit badly positioned? But as I said earlier,
you are getting better and better with values.
Undersea project is going nicely, I like the feeling
of the dark and murky deep sea. Maybe a bit too
dark and blurry as someone said above, but
generally it's pretty sweet. Right now I think
that you are way ahead in your 3D aspect
than in your 2D drawings and paintings.
The painting aspect is getting a lot better. The cat painting was really nice, big step forward there.
There's still quite noticeable drawing errors underneath all that new painting knowledge that I would suggest that you work on.
Hi man, how you doing? that undersea scene looks amazing, definitely believable. Maybe I would add a bit more light to it. Studies are getting much better specially with value work and bodies. Heads are still a bit off though, just keep practicing.
Heey =) Spent most of the day in my sketchy =) Was fun =)
Zou - Yip, we had to write an essay (dissertation) on 3d/game topics. Some people failed and I think a few got like 50%'ish, so not bad considering, but I'm not exactly proud of my mark. Kinda frustrating to just miss a 1st =( Thank you for the compliment man, yip pretty much finished with it, was a quick study at like 3am to see how much I don't know =) I could finish it I guess =) Yip I agree with you on that, will practice more flow and do studies of the shoulder and hips =) Cheers man, you're pretty much spot on with the stuff =)
Lightship69 - Thank you man, haha, it's cool! =)
fantasyartist - Thank you Swendly! =)
jablar - Cheers man =)
Conny - Yip still alot of stuff I don't know about drawing.. jus got to keep practicing until it gets better =) Cheers for the encouragement man, really appreciate it =) =)
Ricardo Robles - Hey man =) I'm okaays =) I think =), I have to start back 3d next week, it's kinda crap cuz I'm really wanting to just draw you know.. =) Thank you for the feedback, yip Alex said the same thing, so I'll add a bit more light to the various areas. Cheers for that, really appreciate it =) Thx's for the feedback, will practice heads more! =)
kimozabbi - Hey man =) Haha, I'm glad you like that one, seems to be a hit! =) Cool man, yip I see the prob, will improve on that =) Cheers man =)
Portrait commission, abandoned due to missing the likeness =)
