    Lot of inspirational words and awesome work.

    "if someone were to say “You can’t do it.” I say fuck it and do it anyway and either prove them wrong or fail. Then try it again. And again. And again. Until it works."

    Excellent piece of advice, really liked it.

    Your thread is approaching 5 stars and there's not much I could add to the comments so I will just say, perfect.

    Hey fellas! Thanks for the awesome comments and lovely words =)

    Here is a sketch I just did, no where near a finished piece, but I just wanted to take a break from some other work.

    About 1/2 an hour from imagination.

    Hope you find it interesting =)

    Thanks bro, glad you enjoyed it =)

    This is a sketch I did today at sketchgroup of a character called Pat from one of my children's books. This character represents the gentle, lighter side of life and takes the child heroine called Megadeath on a play school excursion. Good fun for all was to be had and remembered. Pencil and charcoal.

    Today was enjoyable, just sketching for myself y'know? I have a slew of new freelancer work, a couple of covers for XB, some art directing and that large piece I'm still working on:



    Hopefully after this week, I will be free to delve into my own personal work and start working the portfolio again. I feel dirty, without enough time to do my own work, I feel my art is only 50% of what I am capable of! I want to get better!

    Anyway, I have a headache, I will go to sleep soon.

    Cheers, Daz

    Pat is great example of what all children’s book characters should look like. His sympathetic smile and soothing demeanor has a really calming effect on my inner child.
    Your work is inspiring ... and so is your sense of humor.
    Hope the headache subsides soon.

    Man your work has improved tremendously, really loving the look you've been achieving both with traditional and digital. It's surprisingly consistent between the two, usually there is a sharp divide (stylistically) between the two.
    Comic on the last page is a great treatment, hope to seemore like that soon!

    Is the children's book for real? Cause I hope so, would make for a sweet Brom/Shaun Tan/Adam Rex lovechild.

    Hehe, yeah yeah! That's me making sure my stylus still works!

    Here's a quick sketch this morning for my private student, showing how to render form quickly. About 15 mins.

    Those boxes and quick render look great, its an awesome exercise to try out.
    Any tips on rendering different materials without relying on too much ref or overlays?

    This is gonna sound so lame, but render different materials consistently WITH photographic reference until you understand the surface properties of reflection, specularity, opacity, refraction, caustics, fresnel etc.

    Think about them in layered steps, then, go off and practice doing them in the steps you memorised without the reference.

    It just takes time, use visual references until you don't need them, and it's a different time period for everyone.

    Wow your sketchbook is really something special! I felt I learned something from watching that vid you posted, I gotta try using colours more like you do aswell I realise. And your rendering skill is amongst the best I have seen here.

    No its a very valid point, there is no shortcut or replacement for the knowledge and intuition that comes from experience.
    Didn't think of breaking it down into separate properties to note/study before, but thinking of it that way, from simple to complex makes a lot of sense.
    Sometimes you just gotta be told simple things before you think of them youself
    Thanks!

    SirGreenSocks, that's the main thing I got from studying computer science, everything has a process.

    Art work is not magic, it is a breaking down of the complex into the simple, so that you can reconstruct it. Take the magic out of art, none of it is magic, it is a play between naturally occurring phenomena that can the digested in a concise scientific way.

    Here is a quick 15 minute hand sketch study, no rendering, just figuring out forms.

    Those boxy forms in posts 381 and 365...man, those just slay me. The rendering ability, the knowledge of light, form, and edges that they display...Truly impressive!
