    Geir's finished... updated 28.12.10

    Ok -it's time to start up a finished thread here aswell I guess. I'll start with some older and some not so old. There will be both digital and traditional works here.

    One of my first digipaintings, "Fight of the giants"
    Attachment 878195

    "The dronekeeper"
    Attachment 878199

    This one was made as a studie from the Gnomon video "Character Design Techniques Traditional to Digital Process with Keith Thompson" Great video, that unfortunatly is ruined so I might have to buy it again (I'm kind of a collector of such vids). This one is called "The clown dog".
    Attachment 878196

    Made for a challange over at IFX called "I, for one, welcome our new overlords"
    Attachment 878194


    Another IFX challange. The picture is called "The clumsy icecream anteater"
    Attachment 878197

    Another challange "Introdusing the newest cenobite"
    Attachment 878192


    "The boxer". Originally made as a pencil drawing, but I don't have a photo of it and the drawing is sold.

    Hi Geir. The "icecream" is not going out of my mind!
    This animal figure in the shadow is genial. But this girl;
    I dont like it. She is too mutch literaly, and too little. I wish you
    paint a other with time. What you think if she dont show her face, like
    looking wath the icecream chief doing and holding up her left arm like
    the hand over the eyes, blending from the reflection of the white icecream wagon,
    just in a waiting pose? She can have a hat like 1900 on her head.
    And what if you pale up the horizontal middle stripe behind the icecream chief,this makes the white of the figure darker (like it must be) than the background (a bit of turkys color in the white aereas of the figur?...)

    HI pier. I wanted to create a kind of Norman Rockwell'ish scene with a surreal twist. The girl is the Rockwellian part here. I wanted to show her impatint sulky expression. Like if she has been waiting a long time for her icecream. So it was important to me to show her face.
    I wanted a light piece here. But I guess I could up the contrasts a tad. Which figure do you want turkish in?

    I mean the animal figure that stand in the shadow.The white colors of
    this figure must be darker than the background behind (a bit more turkish in the
    white I have think). And, like I have write, if you make the middle horizont stripe
    behind the scenerie more white it gives more contrast and sugest a hotter temperature.
    Ore you eat icecream in Bergen/Norway in the wintertime???.....
    Im sorry, but I think this ompatint sulky expression Geir's finished... updated 28.12.10 not needs. It makes more like
    caricature, theatralic. Rockwell has used photos for referenc. Carl Larsson is a good inspiration maybe.... What me disturbs is that the girl in your work dont have the same
    stile quality like the rest? And she is too little, needs one head higher I think...?

    I see. Ok I will take a look at the girl again. Not sure I want to change her expression though (can't please everybody you know), but I'll adress the rest of the issues you rasie. Thanks for the input Pier.
    Oh, and the girl you posted has a to much of a sad look, were as I want her to sulky in a offended/angry way that kids can get.

    My idea was to upgrade the potential poesie that this painting has.
    Sometimes a covered face under a hat express more than a open face...

    I absolutely see what you mean about poetry. But my main focus in this picture was a more direct humoristic approche with the play between the clumsy icecreamanteater and the girl. But I really appriciate your input. They are all valid and good, and are duely noted in my head-archive under good painting
