    I read about the disease that you have.
    It is called;
    "Having the talent to bring alive the pictures with
    just a few brush strokes"

    Anyway... I am sending Mel Gibson to your house.
    In a drunk state.
    I replied to your sketchbook twice, and you did not
    returned the favor.
    That disease is called;
    "ungratefulness"

    I haven't posted for ages, so here's my attempt to correct the situation. In my defence, I've had to move, and also experienced total hard drive failure. Been doing all of my studies in sketchbooks, using pencils like some kind of knuckle-dragging caveman. Fun. I actually found it hard going back to digital for some reason.

    Mawh, chuck18mp, LtPlissken - thanks for the comments. The email notification I received prompted me to post, and to create this festive image (so I could include some art in my reply).

    LtPlissken, please don't send Mel Gibson to my house. I don't want to have to battle him on the off chance he mistakes me for a Jewish person or a woman. Or worse, a Jewish woman. One comment coming up.

    Bonus caption for the festive picture!

    "Please Santa, stop!" they cried.

    "No," Santa said, with a twinkle in his eye. "It is much too late for that."

    Ho ho ho...

    Excellent stuff, dude. Really nice handle on the basics as well as color.

    That Santa/Father Christmas looks real enough that I'm ducking the punch

    This is a 5 star book... and if not, it's definitely one in the making.

    Subscribing.

    you work beautifully. your colors are always on-pooint. and you seem very fluent with digital painting.

    Please stop doing the sharpen (or paint daubs) filter. cause it reallyt takes away from the quality and aesthetics of your digital paintings. It creates unnecessary texture that adds nothing but distraction to your work.

    I did paint daubs (sharpen) for a long time, and i had someone with balls come and tell me that i need to stop. Lol.

    So, i hope its cool that i pass that along to you. take it with a grain of salt tho.

    i really like your work.

    Apparently just writing 5* is too short, hence these words

    EDIT
    LOLBBQ, whatre you on about? Sharpen and Paint Daubs are totally seperate functions.
    Paint Daubs is for fakers trying to make photos look like paintings, sharpen increases edge contrast and is a legit tool in my view. Although I prefer unsharp mask for its improved interactivity....

    Any tool in the hands of someone who knows what s/he's doing is a good tool. I think Matthew knows what he's doing.

    Wow, great use of color and shadows. Don't go overboard on the blurring though.

    Hey Matthew! I really love your lighting! You manage to get such beautiful light and shade relationships. Do you have any tips as far as temperature, saturation, etc... I'm kinda strugglin with that kinda stuff right now... Also is that the Unsharp Mask filter that you're using in your process to get harder edges? It looks really cool. Really dig the The Wire images, the hard and soft edges. Are you watching Treme? lol...

    Wow, thanks for all the comments! My apologies for the very late reply/general sketchbook neglect. I had a busy few months and blah, blah, blah, excuses. Anyway, I'd like to become more prolific with my posting here on ConceptArt.org, beginning with this sketchbook.

    Now, to the replies...

    Medusoid - Why thank you! The blood effect is very simple, and embarrassingly cheap (but effective). I just took a splatter texture, applied a layer mask, and painted away the parts I didn't want. It may have been a multiply layer, I can't recall. I also used Hue/Saturation to change the colour. Hope this helps (seven months later)!

    Parsakoira - Thanks, I hope you ended up doing some Christmas stuff!

    Mawh - Thank you, I appreciate it!

    MichaelMotion - Thanks for the kind words!

    pixel cheetah - Cheers!

    p sage - Thank you very much, I'm flattered that you subscribed! It's unfortunate that I haven't updated in so long...

    Aryeh
    - Thanks! Heh, I can be very guilty of abusing the unsharp mask tool. It's cheap, but I think it can look great when applied properly. I'll aim for more subtlety in the future.

    CrookedHorn - Thank you, although that zombie head isn't so recent anymore!

    Velocity Kendall - Thanks! I agree with your comments regarding the unsharp mask tool.

    Ccs - Thank you! I was definitely going overboard with the blurring at one point, it makes the present me wrinkle his nose with distaste!

    z01ks - Thanks for the post! Hmm, it's difficult to offer tips regarding temperature and saturation, at least in the scope of this small message. I spent a long time studying light and colour. I'd really recommend you read the entirety of this site, it's tremendously helpful!

    http://www.huevaluechroma.com/

    Also yes, I was using the beloved unsharp mask tool. I haven't watched Treme yet, but it's on my ever-growing 'to watch' list!

    hu-ha
    - Haha, thanks - I appreciate it!

    Metal Fingers
    - Thank you. I wish I had metal fingers too, after all this typing.

    Riox - Thanks! I haven't been great at rolling out the updates so far, but I mean to change.

    weashell
    - Cheers!

    Phew, hope I didn't miss anyone.

    Anyway, here are some pictures I did over the past few months.

    The first image I finished yesterday. The new Cup-A-Soup instant soup product mascot? A hug in a mug. It appeals to the lucrative pre-tween market.

    I have a small tradition of revisiting this character every couple of years, to measure my progress. By now, as you can imagine, I've racked up quite a few - I first started around about the time I was evading persecution from the Jesuits.

    Next up, a fairly lacklustre CHOW entry, followed by an image I never got round to finishing. I may start it anew. The last image was basically just a lighting exercise. I think I was going to make some kind of half-hearted joke about the massive art student cliche that is sad clowns, and then came to my senses.

    Amazing focus, bluring is very effective without seeming over done.
    Ridiculously effective.

    Metal Fingers - Haha, say no more.

    HydroFoiL - That's not something I've ever heard attributed to my work before - thanks!

    Kurtzund
    - Thanks! I love The Wire. May have to do some kind of Breaking Bad study, in honour of the new season starting.

    jedininjaman - Thank you, although I've successfully weaned myself off the blur tool, it can be a bit of a crutch...

    p sage - Thanks!
