    Thanks! I actually loved the way they executed the vamps in 30 days of night. I really wanted to bring in some of that brand of ferocity but contrast it with some of the controlled and calculated killer personality that a professional soldier would have.

    By the way, you're work looks really cool!

    Dope!
    I like the way you designed the layouts. Really cool.
    The single full body character is cool... from the waist up looks like it needs some tightening up from there down. but nice, i like the face a lot.

    I'll post my result after i'm done, but if anyone has any insight, it would be appreciated.


    thanks in advance!
    Once you have a really good value drawing its fairly easy to create a layer set to multiply in photoshop and lay your colors that way. It actually very good practice to to these images in B&W first as its much easier to judge your values.

    thanks for the tip! i'll give it a shot. I had originally tried that method with the layer set to overlay but the colors were sitting over the values and looking very pastel like. I'll see if i have more luck using multiply. i was initially apprehensive trying that since i thought it would make everything look muddy.

    I'll post my result after i'm done. I'm hoping to get some time on it tonight and tomorrow.

    thanks again!

    UPDATE!

    Here's the colored concept. I did a few versions because the Director preferred a less bloody alternative. I couldn't help myself and i really gored him up though.. which do you guys prefer?

    I dig the 'military vampire' thing, very cool. I agree with too, in house jobs rock.

    Yeah i've been trying to hunt down and achieve the ever-elusive in-house job for a while now. hopefully as i create more good work and step my game up, i'll get noticed by someone in a position to hire me or at least put in a good word. It's a long hard road filled with tons of competition.
