    Jungle Corel Sketch and movie offer

    Here's anonther quick Masterclass sketch done in front of a live audience

    Also, this month I'm giving away a free three part downloadable movie set on the creation of Robot Bride to all visitors of my blog and ConceptArt.org, so if you're reading this simply visit my website: www.pjartworks.com and purchase the three part 'Carnival 3000AD' movie set, then type 'robot promo' in the note box at checkout and the Robot Bride movie set will be sent to you on receipt of your Carnival 3000AD payment. Offer ends August 31st 2010.

    About Robot Bride: Abandoned Art:

    I originally started Robot Bride as a demo for my Masterclass students to introduce them to building brushes in Corel Painter then abandoned the art as unfinished. Later I thought it would be a good exercise to dust off what was a pretty lifeless piece and turn it into something special. For anyone who has ever abandoned a piece of art this is the movie to watch. The movie set is designed as a three hour one-on-one Masterclass teacher/student with voiceover throughout. Plenty of custom brushes are used, tricks and tips, and professional insights using both Painter and Photoshop.

    NOTE: THIS IS THE FINAL DAY FOR THIS OFFER. ALL ORDERS WILL BE HONOURED UNTIL 12 MIDNIGHT, 31TH AUGUST WHATEVER COUNTRY YOU ARE IN!

    Well, I just started drawing and painting like 7 months ago, so I have to work hard if I want to improve.
    Looking forward to more here.

    Future New York: The Gated Community

    Great stuff, jskotte! Wish you were in my class.

    Here's another one I did live for my students. It started as a scribble with no pre-planning and I found a future New York in the mess.

    Good luck with your art.
    Patrick.

    Wow.
    Love the way you use colour, and I reckon The Gated Community painting would make a sweet desktop wallpaper.

    Bring out your crits, asspats, and assorted comments
    I got me a sketchbook...
    Slow, yet hopefully steady, improvement. This way

    I'm just going to echo a couple comments in saying that your color palette choices are just beautiful. I really get a sense of mood and atmosphere from these.

    They feel quick and wonderful. They are like the gesture drawing equivalent of environments. Please post some more!

    I agree, I how effortless you make these look. I'm assuming since you are doing them live in front of a class these are done pretty fast. Something I really need to work on is speed... I always feel like I take to long. Got any tips for speed painting?

    Also, I find it amusing how you blew up the one image as if to show detail, but the result is blurry blobs of color that look as though they were painted at 72 dpi

    And do be sure to check out my sketchbook if you have time!

    Thanks guys,
    Don't worry too much about speed, Yeti, that just comes from study and technique, besides most posted videos are sped up to some degree giving the wrong impression of speed. The reason speed paintings are called such is probably more to do with the fact they are done in a fraction of the time of, say, a matte painting. Everything still takes time.
    The Vegas close up is to show that in concept art detail is implied rather than rendered, really just abstract marks. It probably took me an hour to paint with questions and answers from the audience during the demo.
    Julie, I'll see if I can upload a sample video...
    Good luck with your work.

    Movie Samples

    Hi Julie,

    I tried to upload movie samples directly here but it came up as an upload error too many times. I've cut a new piece of video from Carnival 3000AD and posted it on my utube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/PJArtworks

    Yeti, it's worth watching this for speed techniques but don't be intimidated as the sketch stage is always my fastest process. All my movies are in real time with everything on show so no one gets frustrated or left feeling lost. Other samples can be viewed on the same channel, including a later stage from Carnival 3000AD.

    If you are interested in the full movies there's still time to get a great deal with this month's promo. Here it is again:

    This month I'm giving away a free three part downloadable movie set on the creation of Robot Bride to all visitors of my blog and ConceptArt.org, so if you're reading this simply visit my website: www.pjartworks.com and purchase the three part 'Carnival 3000AD' movie set, then type 'robot promo' in the note box at checkout and the Robot Bride 'Abandoned Art' movie set will be sent to you on receipt of your Carnival 3000AD payment. Offer ends August 31st 2010.

    Book Jacket art: the face part 1

    Every artist will hit a brick wall once in a while while painting a face, even Frank Frazetta while painting his Egyption Queen. Here was one of my own struggles.

    Stage one: The brief required a tough, bald, but beautiful heroine. A tricky thing to get right. At this stage she looked too puddy-like as I worked on giving her a frown.

    Stage 2

    Stage 2.
    I darken the ridge between the brows to indicate a softer curve and add some highlights. But it's still not right!

    hey i really like your enviro concepts they are pretty neat especially this one http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1282689470 but i think you abuse the soft edges a wee bit too much, for instance this one has so many soft edges i can hardly tell whats going on, anyway your pretty damn good and you can paint people quite well

    stage 3

    At this point I think I've lost my mojo, nothing seems to be going right. I open my original colour rough, thumb through some reference and start painting again. Now she looks too greasy and hard, She's not beautiful enough. I decide to take a break from it and work on something else for a while.

    Stage 4: Bringing Sexy Back.

    I come back with a fresh eye, and, bingo! I see all the problems that need solving; her face was too gaunt, there was too much harsh highlight and shadow. Nothing was subtle.

    I get to work and broaden the face, reshape the head, put some backlight in the shadows, soften everything. Now she's tough, and beautiful. That was a rough ride for while.

    Hi Patrick, I didn't realize you already had all those videos available, demos look great.
    And thanks for sharing your though process for this heroine. Came out great.
    Do you have any advice on tendonitis and how to get rid of it?
