Riox's Sketchbook '11
I've decided to start up a new sketchbook on here , in hope I can gain more feedback on my work. I haven't updated on here since January 2010, which is far too long. I have however been floating around on IFX for the last year. Now I feel I need to branch out and get more input from other sources.
New stuff on last page
Here are some images from 2010 (new to old).

NickeyBeats: How is it every sketchbook I look at your on their? Are you stalking me or am I stalking you with out my knowing it?
Riox: Nice work, IDK why but I think I like your older stuff better it just looks more finished to me.

LOL! I just realized that you said your newer stuff was first. Ahh and my stupidity shines through.
But great job love the top one, it has a real intense feel but kinda small, do you have a bigger res?

Nick: Hey man, great to see a familiar face. I thought I'd come across here to get more opinions on my work and hopefully I will.
Medusoid: Cheers for leaving comment. Glad you like my stuff :o) As for the Fight Club study I'm afraid I don't have a higher res because I usually work small when I do speedpaintings. Also I dont have the PSD anymore because I had a clear out in the new year.
Anyway here are a bunch of recent WIP's that I'm working on.
This WIP is for the monthly competition over at Imagine FX. The title is "The Shape of Things to Come".
Basically my idea of the future is bleak and twisted. I have created the Apple I-Seat Max, this seat not only feeds you mushed up McDonalds and gets rid of your waste, but the chip in your brain allows you to watch whatever, whenever. The human race (mainly male) are locked away in warehouses so they can be used as a resource. For example excrement is used as fertiliser, in hopes that it can help re-build the planet we've destroyed.
I'd be great to get input on these, so feel free to leave feedback.

Hi there and welcome back, by the sounds of it!
Really nice to see a lot of painting, but what strikes me immediately about your work is how muddy colours mostly are (or if not that, then unnatural-looking). It would be great to see some quick sketches done with just vibrant, alive colour on a white or coloured background. That is good practice for teaching yourself not to be afraid of the spectrum (nature sure is not, not even in the dark :-))
Can't wait to see more!

Jansi: Thank you for the feedback. I mostly like working with Muddy colours to try get an atmostsphere , but then again colours are still very new to me. I will definatly try out painting bright and vibrant images. I do want to develop my colour skills as much as possible, so thanks for advise.
I've been trying to lighten this image up but I seem to have myself stuck.
Any feedback or critique on the lighting that may help would be great.

Nubian Greene: Hey thanks for the feedback, I agree about the lighting. If I'm unsure how to light something I tend to just dust light all over. I will be going back to this piece and hopefully I'll learn how to light clearly as I go.
Here's an update on the dog image. I've just straightened out problems with the dog on the left. I felt the face was too droopy.
And here's an anatomy study from yesterday, feedback appreciated. Hope you like.

cool muscle studies, although the trunk muscles don't look completely accurate on the latter on, use ref if you didn't

oK my whole message just got deleted twice now... thats fun, THANKS GOOGLE!!! Anyway...
I personally love your colors but then again I'm not sure of my own color ability so...yeah Your work seems kinda "all over the place" with your quality. Some show grade A work and others seem kinda lack luster. Are you posting only new work or are you jumping around cause that can make it hard to evaluate(I just found this out like 2 weeks ago )
Aside from a few places I think your anatomy studies are lookin really nice man
