lovely concepts lately with the creatures as well as your CHOW thumbs. malakuko~ you're really pumping out the work like a mad man! ;3
Abrodos - thanks yeah youre right, I kind of just did my own thing when it came to the lighting and I think half way I switched from an above light source to a below light source by accident haha
teapo - haha thanks! you have to be a bit mad to be an artist
40 minute do hickey for Intensity club
UG UG, my ChOW entry
Wanted to do a tonal study, then I thought why not add color
FINALLY starting to do some actual sketches. It clicked in my mind why they ARE important, but im still not very motivated to do them.
Failed godzilla studies. Was not motivated at all
Didnt get around to finishing the image. Might pick it up again later. Maybe
Sketch in the morning o
Study from life. A little rusty with digital life
Got the Bierek Mystery of Form download since Ive been thinking about form. And I got money from my birthday hehe. Its really cool but I knew alot of it already, however I like to be told by some one whos better than me
Heres my first attempt. Still life.
Im on this weeks ChoW again! Il do every week If I can! heh
Took me ages to get off the ground with this. The key word that threw me off was "uniform". I just couldnt imagine a necromancer wearing a uniform
I decided to just go ahead and paint and throw out ideas and get new ones etc. Love it.
I dont know what I was thinking but hey!
Started making bigger steps now. Going back further in time to a darker era perhaps.
And finally heres where I am now. The main drive Im trying to put behind this character is, to be the best necromancer out of a school of necromancy youve got to be fucked up in the head. And just totally obsessed and weird. You dont just dable in bringing the dead to life.
It needs to look like part of what shes wearing is uniform for her school of necromancy. I like to image the school as more of an apprentice to master program than academic. Sort of a cult too. Cut off from society.
I think that Rosie would be an example of the more well dressed within the group. But not with her own care towards how she looks.
I think Im stuck or maybe Im just done. Either way I have to draw paint and render the final image before tommorows over Its ok though I had already decided that this week Im just using a white background. And I really want to show her personality through her pose and expression.
Any help/advice would be tremendously appreciated!
Icecold - hey thanks had a look at your SB, subscribed!
Didnt get around to finishing my ChoW this week I dwelled in the beginning stages too long. I think I forgot that I only have ONE week haha. Oh well Im still going to finish it! Without a doubt.
Heres where I am as of last night.
some nice studies man! liking how your working out characters too. only crit i would say is maybe think of values in the skin abit more when working on them. seems alittle flat at the moment.
no87 - thanks yea that character stuff is hard work heh. If youre talking about that last image posted, there all just base tones, not even actually, I just threw them down so I could seperate the elements of the character for painting later. She will have a light pale skin tone when the image is finished Thanks for the concern though.
Hive_minD - Thanks, I try
Icecold - oh sweet! that was the effect I was hoping for. Youre the second person to say that btw, not including myself. I used photoshop, built up the form in stages
Just a quick update, no studies or nothing. Just to say happy birthday to Ringo Starr who is I believe 70 today! Not my favourite Beatle but I still love 'im!

The New Pirate AirShip Captain
Vlad worked with a vicious air pirate group for ten years to gain there trust. He gained his way to the rank of number two man of the captain. Before a battle with there enemies he silently killed the captain and all witnesses. He even had crew members on his side. He gave the rest of the crew a story of an attack by there rivals and since he was the no.2 guy, the decision to make him the new leader was unanimous.

Nice job on the captain! Your paintings look better with each update!
Watch the materials you're painting, they tend to all be fairly similar. Some more interesting texture/edge play would really help make the overall image more interesting. Other than that it;s really well painted, though the ship looks very empty...
