nice portraits...and i love your still life studies
What an amazing sketchbook you have. I like your use of color, and your compositions are just beautifull. It gives me that certain comfortable feeling when I look at your images.
I thank you for posting you wips and your vimeo channel, since i`m a beginner on digital arts. It is very resourcefull to look at what steps you take when creating a painting. This will apply on traditional stuff as well. Thanks!!!!!
i absolutely LOVE your SB, really inspirational stuff!!
keep em coming man!
help me better myself as an artist ----->
Hey Matt, i havent been here for a while.
That study is rock solid, i've a question for you.
To be honest i wanted to ask this long time ago, but just forgot to do so.
Do you own a cintiq perhaps? Your digital drawings are so accurate that it made me wonder. If yes could you tell me abit how it is to work on it vs intuos, and is it worth it's price.
Thanks and yes, better late than never wish you all the best in the new year!
Icecold: Yes, I do have a cintiq. I don't like to mention it often, because people often assume that expensive tools improve artists' abilties. I do think that the cintiq improves my accuracy which is most valuable in linework. Also i know that its large screen area allows me to make large and expressive strokes, which also leads to confident linework.
Does this mean a cintiq is required to do my paintings? no way. If I did not have one, i would do my linework on paper and scan it in. Painting is not as hampered by a USB tablet, only the lineart.
Is it worth the price? absolutely yes. I paid $2000 for mine nearly two years ago, and it is maybe the best purchase i've ever made in my life. I find that the posture I use while drawing is improved and I enjoy it more as a result. Also, using a disposable screen protector allows me to be very heavy handed without damaging the unit.
so if you're serious about digital painting and have the means to do so, i would recommend getting the large cintiq. It's certainly not required, but i love using it for many hours everyday.
And now for some overdue updates:
some paintings i made for family members (Christmas presents)
and some bloodbowl fanart. i thought it would be funny to do a pose like a youth football player on photo day.
Great stuff man! Awsome studies!
is a fan
