    C..o.mp...o..s..t.in...g

    Have not posted any art on CA for a long while, so... new sketchbook.

    If for some strange reason you want to see my older one from 2008 it is here:http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...84#post1900084

    I went and saw a "jason and the argonauts" play the other day.
    The way they used the wagon as the set was rather neat.
    It even transformed into a ship.

    Edit,
    moved and resized the original first post picture to here.

    Woah,
    I haven't tried digital painting for a year or more now.
    It's never been fun before today.
    Now I'm having a hard time stopping.

    Hey, I love your watercolors. What paper are you using? It looks like you're getting some nice control despite a pretty coarse texture. I used to love making big wild watercolors so It would be great to know. Right now I just use 4-ply museum board, which is typically for matting, but it makes a great substrate for water based stuff.

    I'm also just starting out with digital paint, maybe take a loose watercolor and use it as a basis for a digital painting. Then add to it with some really transparent layers, building it up from there. I think it becomes fun for me when I already have something to work from, maybe it will work for you too!

    I'm not overly picky about paper. For me the pens and paint are far more important.

    That said,
    All the ones I have posted so far have been on cheap strathmore 140lb cold press.
    The airship one is in a sketchbook with some sort of smoother paper.

    I like really thick hot press paper, but I tend to use whatever I have around.

    Thanks for the the starting with a loose watercolour suggestion. Maybe I will try it. Although I have always felt weird about working off of something non digital. Maybe because the original doesn't change when you paint on the computer, haha.



    Went on a sketchbook date, the other day...

    Heey! Cool style for sure. I really like how you do single objects like that building and the flying ship. Would love to see some of those qualities in a more complete composition!

    Nice conceptual series with those simple environmental statements I appreciate those!

    You have quite a lovely, whimsical touch with your pen and watercolor pieces, though I think you can work on backgrounds. They seem rather rushed or thoughtless to me.

    backgrounds, backgrounds
    It's true, I don't think about them very much.

    Thanks for the helpful feedback!

    WIP, trying to make it a more full and finished composition.

    You have a very charming style, your line work is great. Although you're lines may not be perfect they have a nice gesture to them, and the sketchy lines don't confuse the objects.

    The most i can see you needing to be a bit more considerate towards are backgrounds. And to that i would say dont force it because your work can stand on its own with maybe a wash or a few lines describing a background.

    keep it up

    your orange peel fishy fish is quite possibly one of the best places for inspirations i've ever known - did the orange peel come first or was it a side project (a little sculpting practice ?)

    really impressive, i love watercolors, and I love that you cite your inspirations for your work... in fact I think for my sketchbook I'll go back and add what I was thinking about for my posts...

    in short, I hope to see more posts always nice to see good watercolor work

    The orange peel came first. "Hey, that looks like a fish!"
    Thanks for the encouragement.


    Tried out sketchbook whatever it is on someone's ipod. Random sketches from my head.

    Quick skull studies. I think it's a seal skull. It was found on a beach in Newfoundland.

    Hey there, keep on going with the ink pictures.
    Is the Crash Site a card fro a game or something like that?

    i love the delicate style of your watercolors, not much to critique on that side of things, but i'd say try to push your colors, post some experiments, they'll help with the mood in your backgrounds, etc..

    keep em comin''

    ...the imperfections make it interesting...

    "Crash Site" is not for a game. That's a nice idea though.




    Still life, WIP. Haha, drawing lego is so weird.

    More artrage WIP.
    Drying to figure out a digital process or something.
    Real paint doesn't have so many options to distract you with.
