    Oddo returneth.

    Hello awesome people and marmots (but mostly people) .

    I've been off the "CA radar" starting with 2006, since work took me in a more technical/ managerial direction; my drawing time has suffered over the past few years.

    I slapped some sense into me this winter it seems, (might not draw at work but that does not mean I have to give up ).

    So without further ado, here's my random stuff been done in the time I was away, and hoping to pull myself up from the side ditch .

    Cheers


    .. taking a long time to sort though random stuff... I am a bit afraid that the post will timeout SO I will post some now, and add the rest in the next post, after probably another hour or so .

    Silly me, seems there's a picture count limit . There goes one half hour of uploading and setting descriptions .

    Here goes again

    The first one ( the character line-up) is a commission, design are mind after the client's text descriptions.


    The next stuff from this post however is done as a fun side project for a friend who plays a game called Lineage2. It was a good practice to try and work with other folks' designs. So the character and gear design for those particular pieces is NOT mine . Only illustration/pose. For the record .

    And some more of them.

    Hmm I just realized I have a somewhat high res screen and I might be posting the pictures too large..
    Will scale them down...

    @ snootchy: Thank you will try
    @Mokhi: Thank you . Made a few more posts in the meantime .
    @NickyBeats: Thank you
    @ Lyno: Thank you
    @Twan: Thank you. Other then digital I only have some pencil work (some of the sketches are scanned pencils) . Color is exclusively digital for me at least for now.

    .. but what happened Be tough with me, i need critique, . Did the critique forum move to another spot in the meantime ?

    For instance I know that I sometimes have a criminal disregard for surface texture, that my anatomy is " lofty/floaty" at best, edge quality almost always leaves a lot to be desired and almost never put enough work in a piece to bring some areas to a level of detail that it "pops" off the page.

    Also It shows that I do very little real life studies (need to do more to comprehend more about rendering different materials and the light). And more live figure drawing, right now I am trapped in semi-cartoon land .

    Lota work to do .

    Will appreciate critique anywhere, anytime .

    Thank you I'm too much of a procrastinator to be anyone hero's though Trust me on this one .
    Old sketch book died along with the external hosting sites .


    Been in the industry for 9 years, got in as a texture artist (and occasional concept) , then FX artist, then Technical Artist and then moved to management position (which most would say is "moving up", but from an art perspective is "moving away" ).
    In order to force myself to keep drawing i started taking commissions in my free time, however that worked well in some ways, and bad in others, since sometimes it was forcing me to draw stuff that I considered had little artistic merit.

    My reasons for drawing are a bit different now then when I got in the industry . I just want to improve ( or at least not get rusty) and to be able to occasionally tell "a story"

    Starting today to sketch new stuff every day, in pencil because digital is too forgiving and too comfortable .

    Quick mash-up of dirty-put-together doodles from imagination .

    Only served as a reminder that before I can get something good out, need to start to put good things in.. so will be going back to doing some studies .

    These are fantastic man! I wish I could offer some crit, but anything would be nitpicking. You have great control over your images. I love the flow of the girl with the double sword. I'd love to see more poses!

    ai ceva munca pe aici sunt unele personaje foarte faine, eu unu tind sa le detaliez mai mult, dar tu banuiesc ca sunt pentru ceva comenzi/lucru si nu ai asa timp de ele sa le bibilesti.

    The colour work is great, so it is kind of a shame that a lot of the textural, fabrics and anatomy is a bit messed up. Still though.. those colours.. good work man!

    Wonderful lush colors, there's still alot of work ahead of you if you want to reach the master level, but you'll get there if you'll keep up the pace.

    Best wishes, ICE
