    The smell of pencils

    My safe zone.. pencils.

    Trying to feel better after a bunch of SHIT oil paintings so this is me sortof taking on the task of creating some Dante's Inferno style demon concepts.

    Too bad the gallery updates aren't working.. Would like to post them there.

    The smell of photoshop

    Some digital stuff in the same vein. Slightly more angelic.

    Great stuff. Check out Luness's sketchbook if you haven't seen it yet, rather similar style to yours.

    Very good start to your sketchbook, better than how most people start off... I can't really find anything to complain about. Keep up the good work!

    Phil Hale studies

    I've seen his work a few times but just found out about him. I love how this guy does skin tones.

    Check him out! These are just pencil studies of his oil paintings.

    I would suggest working with paints a little more, but the pencil drawings are great.

    what DOES a rhino really look like?

    Decided to do some anatomy study for a rhino.. These are my notes and sketches from lunchtime drawing today.

    my rhino

    I did the paint before the study so now I can see his ears hump is too far forward and his jaw isn't rounded enough.. The stripped leathern flesh is intentional but he looks a bit dog-like with these proportions..

    Consider this a study as well

    Yeah you may be more comfortable with pencils but your no slouch when it comes to digital painting. Those are some nice rhino sketches, where do you eat lunch, the San Francisco Zoo?
    And do be sure to check out my sketchbook if you have time!

    Your creatures are awesome! I really like the way you studied the rhinoceros before you worked on the rhino rider- I assume that is the same guy from #11? Just brilliant.
    it's not the end that matters but the journey

    Painting on the Ipad

    Hey thanks for looking!

    Drew up this little fella on my newish Ipad.

    Used Artsudio (the best app - better than Sketchbook in many ways including brush response)

    Dagi stylus (best stylus cause you can see where you are drawing - transparent tip)

    Fantastic! I'm really enjoying you coloring and shading. I'm not to great with animals, so I don't have any crits. Don't forget to keep posting!

    Love the pencil work, but your digital stuff seems, I'm not sure of the word, a bit fuzzy? It might just be me though. And environmentals would indeed be nice.

    Those first few pencils and digitals are amazing!!

    You have a def grasp of both, stronger with pencil, but it seems like it's because you can define your edges more, the digitals are a little fuzzy, but your use of color and form are incredible, they could just use some sharpening, maybe study some rendering techniques

    keep it up dude!

    swing by my book sometime, maybe gimme some tips on those pencils!!

    cheers

    You know what.. That is some great feedback.. The stuff about the digital paints being fuzzy. It's been a lingering suspicion that is now confirmed! Thanks all. I usually build from soft edge to crisp. I think the next step is to make a mark that expresses the edge instead of cleaning and noodling up fuzzy ones.
    kekai kotaki does that well. I love his work. Using the right brush..

    As for environments.. I AM scared. But I will face my fears. Still don't have the sense of scale right when I do them. Feels like a model train set instead of reality.. More soonish.
