"This is a paint and pixel-splattered furnace that forges the swords of artistic mastery. This is a place where swarthy and belligerent dwarves drink turpentine mead, berate their apprentices and slap the trade into their skulls. It's where the anvils are made of graphite, the hammers are as true as rectangular marquee selections and the fires burn with the light of a thousand lensflares." --Jason Rainville
I get really frustrated with the weekly challenges... meh.
I don't think I'll continue on with this one... but I thought I'd post what I'd done here...
I think there were comments suggesting that this is not really a prophet of the end times; alas, I disagree with their notions of what defines a prophet visually.
Still, in the character sheet I began to mend that issue but quickly became disinterested.
I'm chalking this up to more experience, and I think I made at least a little progress and became a little bolder in my approach (though perhaps to no one's eyes but my own).
I realize that I'm having a hard time even bringing an image into being without being disappointed in it right away, so I'll be looking at as much ref as I can get my hands on, and maybe when I undertake a project I'll try to get photos if possible.
These have been lying around. All could use some work, some I wish I could urinate on and then pummel with a meat tenderizer. Likely none will be finished. I'm just keeping them isolated in a folder as jpgs so that I can hopefully look back and laugh at myself.
Great sketchbook here! You've got some really nice (chalk?) pieces that you did for the store. And your sense of anatomy seems pretty good. My only question is, why don't you finish them up? You've got a lot of really cool ideas that seem half finished. I think it would be excellent to see you finish them up
jsn and Newman101, I don't have any immediate plans to finish most of the pieces here. I may go back to concepts and start over, but much of what I have here disappointed me for any number of reasons and therefore become very difficult to hammer out. (Trust me, there has been considerable hammering on a number of these.) Thanks for visiting! Stop again soon!
Something I did in a figure drawing session this morning. Sorry about the poor quality. Need a better camera... If the picture stinks, however, it's because I'm extremely rusty... and a host of other artistic inadequacies
im obsessed with those chalk ads, you have an amazing style with those, i just love the bright mix of colors, amazing, for the computer work, i feel like you need some more practice with the medium, i find it very hard too because im also self taught with traditional medium but we will get there!
