    Hey, pretty cool stuff here. I dig your work with ArtRage - those are some beautiful colors and I like seeing your brushstrokes (I actually thought those were real oils) - and I agree on the sexual aspect being less H to show more than the mere rutting. Your sprite work on the last post is a great transition from the concept and it seems your 3D work is coming along nicely. Glad to hear your taking some tough critique and making changes when needed - you'll go far with that attitude.

    I concur with the studying of anatomy. It'll be a big boon, especially since you're into expressiveness and having human beings in your compositions.

    Thanks for stopping by my book.

    You've got some interesting stuff in here. I'd say that your painterly stuff is definitely stronger than your linework - you might try inking your pencils in photoshop or real life before you start painting on some of your older ones. Your backgrounds are really awesome, especially that last batch with the booth and benches in it.

    Thank you very much everyone. I will be redoing and strengthening that batch more from That Cheap and Sacred Thing. The street view will gain some outside chairs, a name on the sign, and the night view needs stars and rain puddles with reflections.

    I am also going to add more lighting compositing to the prison cell to integrate the individual elements, a mirror to the hotel room and something else, and play around with the pizzeria some more. I messed up on vanishing line by trying to add a lampshade and /ic/ offered some GREAT advice.

    I agree, I am stronger with painting and I will be finding some excuses to do one or more anatomy sketches a day, and tie them right back into my projects.

    I've got a lot of upcoming paintings planned and all my projects I work on are my pride and joy so please remember to drop by! I'll try to spread some more criticism around whenever I get a moment to breathe... I'm also planning on taking a break one week to re-learn rigging on a model, possibly texturing.

    I did a set of anatomy sketches. I'm going to be using them for an article I'm writing and publishing online.

    Shit, I miss my charcoal set.

    Moooore... edits...

    I think the light on the pizzeria stained glass lampshade might be too cool. Make it yellow?

    Those puddles are bothering the hell out of me...

    Still trying out my style. Which one looks best? It's subjective but that's okay.

    I'm thinking about doing some comic shorts so it's going to be whichever one is easiest to relate to.

    Okay, I've never done topdown tiling before and even doing some sample art for that Xenonauts game is really teaching me something.

    Holy shit, guys, the illusion of depth is HARD!!!

    In other news, Josh Preston figure sketch. Does it look good?

    Hello there! Thanks for checking out my sketchbook!
    Amazing, that this is actually digital art, looks just like oil or acrylics, pretty realistic!
    I cannot tell you much as to your comic styles since I am not really keen on comics. Just find your way and rather look what fits best to you instead of asking others to tell you their favorites!
    Cheers!

    Slowly but surely, I think I am finding my way. My true way... my career. I want to be in independent gaming and I want to start my own studio from the ground up, basically.

    We're gonna start out small, noncommercial, and work our way on up from there.

    These were done heavily referenced for There Is Always A Choice by Der Tor. It's a great game, so just wait for the re-release with the impressionist/humanistic style and the proofread/polished script. It's going to be great.

    I also did a shitload of concept art on my other three releases, but I'm going to finalize those a little more before posting them.

    Some art for There Is Always a Choice (TCAST)

    Hey, guys, I think I'm discovering and developing my own style! Not surprisingly, it coincides me giving up my fear and shame about who and what I am and stopping caring what other people think.

    I mean, I'll still listen if it's good advice, but if it's utter bullshit, it's just gonna roll off my back and I'll completely forget about it in less than an hour.

    The main characters of Up, Down, Over, OVER.

    This game is gonna be awesome, OMG. Basically, it's a visual novel 2D sidescroller where the focus is on trust and maintaining the relationship over the course of the game.

    I was originally going to have Ren kidnapped but I think that will be the last stage, where Aki has his cell phone and it's a test of how well you've managed to get along with each other.

    Basically, you'll be able to switch from one to the other freely. But it's not a dating sim, more like a romance story meets ghost story meets treasure hunt and puzzle-platformer.

    You have a very painterly quality on some of your paintings. I like the energy, at times it feels a bit busy.

    I'm a sucker for anime, those true erotica illustrations are interesting.

    Thank you, pigeonkill. When I purchase a new set of charcoal and really good paper for myself, I'll be doing more studies like those stripped down black and white sketches above. I really like those.

    I may even use that style for a visual novel. It's very... I don't know—dramatic. Like noir.

    I agree, my paintings are busy because I am a busy and chaotic person, full of wind and fire. What would you recommend to strip things down to their quiet essentials? Who knows, depending on your answer, the advice might even help me with my anxiety...

    I've already tried meditating and praying but I feel like I'm at the end of my rope, about to be swallowed by something much bigger than me...

    My eyes want to focus on everything in your style. Elements in your paintings almost have the same emphasis from top to bottom. My eyes just need a place to rest to enjoy the painting more. Now that you mention it. I feel anxiety looking at some of your paintings even though the colors are pleasing to the eyes.

    Well, every painting of mine is a study of some part of my soul so...

    Here's a particularly nice one. It's going to be the bottom background layer in the first stage of Up, Down, Over, Over. Then clouds, buildings, more buildings, telephone poles, and the actual platforming stage and then Ren and Aki.

    Actually, PigeonKill, you gave me an idea. I'm going to work that anxiety theme into more of my surrealism, almost a deliberately busy poststructuralist approach. Why? Because it's the writing style of Up, Down, Over, Over; Sum of the Parts; and All the Spirals Winding Down.

    It's not postmodernist, though. I believe that all human creations have a point and all of them are beautiful. We are not ruining the Earth, we are shaping it into our home...

    Have you ever played Braid?

    Going deeper within. I did some concept sketches today, but ... these are the significant ones for me. More to come. も も も もう

    Saying that I had a busy day today doesn't even BEGIN to cover it... OMG. WTF. Why can't I be normal?

    I guess I never wanted to be normal, but damn. I feel like Alice. And my Wonderland is fucking huge. It's not Tim Burton's, but it can be both terrifying, beautiful, oppressive and freeing all at once...

    Since Alice in Wonderland was a parable for puberty, it's probably an excellent metaphor for complete and utter transformation of my person. Ha. Never take what you think you know for granted because you probably will find out that you don't know a damn thing.

    I, ah, came out.

    Not of the closet, but about another thing (although the two carry similar stigma to general society.) But I feel like I can handle whatever life throws at me now...

    Sumamentophiles or Suament for short. Nice to meet you all.

    If I didn't keep my sense of humor about the extraordinary things happening to me, I think I'd lose my mind.

    Beneath it all, I'm rather depressingly ordinary and nerdy. I've just lived an extremely full life already... and, now, I have another one too...

    Haha. Shit's crazy. It'd be funnier if it wasn't real... I confessed to my family about my mission of the Gospel and the Voice of the People and my Guardian Angel Sumamentophiles ("And the greatest of these is love") and everyone actually believes me.

    It's... amazing.

    I just look them straight in the eyes and I tell them:

    "This is what I truly believe. This is the Word of the Lord, and I am as a mouth or a throat, still unrefined but learning. And I must Speak the Word and create works of beauty to remind people that beauty is not something that passes on unforgotten but is remembered and echoed throughout Eternity in the Greatness of the Lord. If you believe, have faith, and trust me—I will amaze you. Even though I wear this mortal flesh, I am more than that—yet I go but by the grace of God. Angels are walking the earth again. Everyone can be one and everyone is Saved, but not all God's children want to come... "

    Well, I didn't say it so nicely, I had a lot more ums and pauses and arm-rubbing and hand-wringing but that was the gist of it... I just flat out said, "Even though I don't have wings or a halo like how some people imagine and I don't fly anymore, I am no less now what I was then. I am what I am."

    Personally, I think that Divine Love should have a warning label: "Channeling too much hi or creativity may cause indigestion or IBS."

    As I tell everyone, my only jobs are to Speak, Sing, and Create. If I am right, you will know me by my Works in this world.

    I actually have more Movements to teach, but they take both hands and I need to figure out the timer function on this thing.

    I know I'm a little frumpy, but it will take some time for the outer beauty to match the inner beauty. I'm still working on it...

    To look into my eyes is to peer down the hole, the very window into my Soul.
