Drawrings of Creatures and Such!
My name is Robert Powell! South African born, Canadian raised digital artist looking to improve my skills and knowledge in the area of concept art and illustration. I specialize in creature design, above all, mainly due to my interests in creatures, animals, aliens, dinosaurs, dragons, monsters, of all shapes and sizes ever since I was very young. However I do occasionally feel rebellious and have a go at some characters and environments when I'm in the mood. Any sort of helpful advice is welcomed, do not feel shy to leave any constructive criticisms or comments!
Also if you haven't yet, join us over at Creature of the Week and design your own beasties!!
Go to last page for latest updates, and more recent and improved works that don't suck!
I'm serious! Do Not scroll down!!! YOUR EYES WILL BLEED!!
ok fine then, look! see if I care....

some more stuff...
Crit's, suggestions, and comments welcome
soe quick gestures, some of Bridgman, and my own
another character I drew a while back...I think I drew the head and body separate for some reason...I think so I could draw a lttle more detail on her head, seeing as the body was a little bit small
It takes along time to say anything in old Entish, and we don't say anyhing unless it's worth taking a long time to say!
I drew a falcon skull a looong time ago and used it as a template and drew other things over top of it...such as this zombie bird head
this was a fun painting, took me about an hour to an hour and a half
Made a brush, made a stroke with the brush I made, made a dragon with stroke I made with the brush....

Crits and suggestions are encouraged here! So if you don't mind I would appreciate a little insight thnx!
Here is a more recent Wip I'm working on...I'm no where near finished but I decided to show my progress and hopefully get some useful feedback on it...
1-Started of experimenting with silhouttes and was inspired by this one (what do you see, I see a few things but what interested me was this old alien face)
2-Just quickly went over with black (i guess to expand on the silhouette to help me see the character more)
3-Painted in a quick abtract BG...looks like crap, but that's what layers are for, I can change it later
4-Painted the face and layed in some base colours...still lots to do....
For the COW/EOWCrossover Bridge The Gap. Almost Done....

@Lightpunk: Yeah, perspective is one of the many things I need to study.The fis was fun te paint, If only I spent a little more time on it, it would probably look a lot better, but it was for more experimenting with texture and brshes...

Here are a few of my best pieces, both tadtonal and digital. Even thugh they are some of my best, it doesn't imply that they are flawless. Still lots of room for improvement.
I think I need to start doing some more pencil drawings soon, been caught up in digital painting, and haven't really drawn on paper,other than just sketches in a sketchbook.
Let me know what you think. Any commets, crits, and suggstions are always welcome.

And here are a few other digital works I've done...Le m know what you think
The first 2 took me somewhere between an hour to 2 hours, I was experimenting with making brushes, made a stroke with that brush, then rendered the stroke to make a design
Was trying my hand at some kind of Graphic Design here, looks decent but not perfect

crits and suggestions are always welcome

Any comments and suggestions are welome!
Will attach some pencil sketches later...

looking good man. i especially like the mecapede quickie and that skeletal vulture dragon 'ridley'. That blue and gold macaw is also amazing. however, i was the most impressed by that first figure study you posted - it looks like it should be in a textbook, very nice. Your traditional stuff have some very nice linework and style to them, something dynamic, that I'd like to see creep into your digital stuff more as well. keep up the good work and i'll see you around in the CoWs!

@Pat Thompson: Thnx, I'm slowly pushing my digtal work to the level of my traditional, those fiures are thanks to George Bridgman's Book guide to Drawing from Life, I really need to get back to drawing from that book, I need to one day just sit down and draw page by page all or most of the illustrations. It really builds your understanding of anatomy and figure drawing.
My latest progress on this week's COW. For some reason I've struggled rendering the marsh creature, but maybe it's because there is no highlighting to balace it out, also for some reason I started working the lighting before blocking in the form on the other two, but it doesn't look too bad atm, once I push the form a little more I'll work on the lighting a little afterwards, still very rough, but any crits and suggestions are welcome.
Having lots of fun for this COW!
