    Quick Sketches (updated)

    Working on my quick sketching for work.
    These are for setting the mood and not for showing detail.

    These are done in Photoshop, 30-45 mins each.

    Wow, the mood on these is great...the lighting is perfect. Thought they were photos, or at least 3d renders for a moment there.

    Very beautiful work, man.

    Cool

    Amazing how much can be said with so little.

    Absolutely incredible! You can't help but be drawn into these scenes. I'm left with a curiosity, that urges me to "proceed with caution". What lies ahead?, I wonder. I can't help but go in an try to find out.

    My hat off to you!

    Thanks alot guys, glad you enjoy them.

    egerie, I use many references to study how certain sufaces react to light etc.
    a couple of examples:
    http://www.csua.berkeley.edu/~rory/images/hallway.jpg
    http://www.murray.k12.ky.us/our_scho...allway%202.jpg
    Some of these we're inspired by some scenes from the tv show Alias.

    These help me see how light and reflections works in certain conditions. The last thing you want to do when try to capture a mood is have things "look wrong".

    Thanks again.

    Evillair,

    When I first looked at these samples of your work, I was seeing them on my PC monitor at work. I'm now at home with a much better resolution monitor and enjoying them for a second time, almost as if for the first.

    You've captured a mood that I've carried in my brain for a sci-fi story that I'm working on. I'm actually trying to get it into a script format. Anyway, I have this scene inside a spaceship where the heroine is being held captive by this alien-humanoid.

    While this is only a draft, I describe the scene in the script like this:

    "A panoramic view of a large room unfolds with (the heroine) situated in the middle...Her entire body is bathed by a medium-intensity beam of white light that is being emitted from above a suspended metal grate ceiling--and which is projecting a soft-edged circle of light witht very soft-hatched shadows on the floor surface beneath. The details of her surroundings are subdued by the contrast of light and dark, with the rest of the room receded within a background as ghostly shadows...."

    It would be awesome to see what you could do with that.

    Thank you for giving us the tip/examples of references that you use. This is very helpful.

    Peace,

    SED

    dear evil,

    for somebody who is only starting to do digital painting in the fashon you are, do you have any words of wisdom on approching the picture? or what type of mentality to have? ect, ect...

    the pictures look awsome, im impressed how fast you work, im still grudgeing along on alot of my work, my fastes was 2.5 hours but that was a freestyle piece, and also the time spent showed a bit.

    I've uploaded the full size version of the first one, you can see how sketchy it really is at that size (1600x1227)
    http://evillair.net/tmp/scene1_huge.jpg
    I worked at 25%. I don't know why I have them that big - abuse of computer power I guess.
    If there's one you'd happen to like to see a bigger version too, let me know.

    SAMDEL, sounds like a nice scene. Have you tried painting it?

    Raptor, I don't have much in terms of advise, sorry. I suggest studying alot of films and artwork that have the mood you like and try to figure out "why" it has that mood. Also check out the master, Craig Mullins.

    Thanks.

    Sci-Fi Script Scene

    Hey, Evillair.

    Thanks! Right now I'm trying to get through (focus on) completing the story/script. I will eventually work up a storyboard, start doing conceptual designs, etc.

    I still work with traditional mediums, but plan to take full advantage of the digital medium to speed up the process. I'm just not versed on using these software programs at this time and the learning curve, I'm sure, will be substantial--until I'm comfortable enough to carry something like this through. However, I've taken a leap and purchased the new Adobe Creative Suite, which includes the latest version of Illustrator and Photoshop. So, I have no excuse, although my job and family obligations play a role.

    In any event, I love what you've been able to accomplish with your digital work and can see how these latest posts capture the essence of what I have in mind for that scene.

    I'm sure to learn a wealth of information from this incredible group of talented individuals.

    SED

    P.S. You can call me Sam.

    Unhappy Any more coming soon?

    Evillair,

    Are you working on anything new that you might post on this thread. I've been thinking about you because I just purchased a wonderful DVD entitled "Visions of Light: The Art of Cinematography." I highly recommend it. Anyway, it's given me a new appreciation for what you've accomplished in 2D work. The principles of light apply whether on a static format or a movie. Please post some more of your work when you can.

    Thanks!
