    Today's update includes a detail shot of the now old WiP of my hobgoblin character as well as a totally new beginning of the pic.

    In short, after spending an hour or two on the previous incarnation of the hobgoblin, I was (still) pissed off that I could not get my painting to the next level. So, I spent most of the weekend hunting, downloading and reading the various resources needed to pack my head with new knowledge. The result is an entirely new approach as can be seen in the new hobgoblin. There are still some parts of the old pic that I want to bring across though, but haven't yet, such as his facial expression. Design-wise, I'm also still working things out.

    Erudite, constructive critiques very much appreciated

    awesome paintings and drawings. 8D
    i suggest you do a little studying up on
    different materials and how they behave in light--
    most of your designs look like they're all made of clay. o:
    keep em up~

    Hey there!
    Thanks for helping me out with my illustration,your comment really helped!
    Really good start of your 3rd sketchbook,I love your rendering style!
    One crit:in your hobgoblin concept,the first sketch(the blue one)had a much more dramatic lightning,and it looked much better that way IMO.
    Real nice work so far,keep it up!

    Dsmith – No worries man! And thanks for the crit; I wholeheartedly agree!

    HolyMane – Thanks!

    Update is… no update.

    However, I did get two new art books in the mail recently: Out of the Forests: The Art of Paul Bonner and Henry Yan’s Figure Drawing: Techniques and Tips. I highly recommend them both!

    Paul Bonner, for those of you who don’t know of him yet, is a fucking amazing artist who creates more than just eye candy. You can tell this guy injects real, actual love into his work, and as a result it is distinctly his own. I think the main thing about his work is the story, drama and emotion he creates his works to be, or simply the life present in his work. I feel, especially after looking at Bonner’s work at length, that this life is lacking in a lot of the stuff produced today. For example, everyone seems to only bother mastering the expressionless face, the typical comic book guy shouting face and a couple of others and sod all else. All technique, no soul. Bonner however, can tell you a story in a single picture. He can show the dour look of a dwarf resigned to his fate as he stands prepared to die by the claws of a horrifying demon so that his companions can escape to safety! You can look at his work for hours. So buy his book! It’s not expensive either; about the same price, shipping and all, as one of those crappy ImagineFX magazines.

    Henry Yan’s book is great, packed with sumptuously realized drawings and yet comparatively minimal instruction… he is that concise, that erudite, that he doesn’t need to say much. He’s going to make my figures look a whole lot better. Buy his book too.

    To finish off, there’s a new book by James Gurney, master creator ninja of the luscious Dinotopia books, out this November for those who don't know yet called Color and Light: A Guide for the Realist Painter, which should be great for all. And I will be out of action in the coming weeks doing a royal pile of academic assignments for Uni… anyone know how the effect of resilient Hellenistic notions affected the outcome of first century Gnositcism? Haha

    And below… tempted?
