    Sketchling - I really like it. Looks like a lot of effort went into making all 4 ideas gel into 1 image. The rusty vinework is the part which seems to sing to me though. There's some reall nice sketchy work in there.

    Nice one!

    Matt Dixon- Yeah Ross is still here! Ya know him then? ..I'm sure I know your name from somewhere....Matt Dixon...Matt Dixon....it's evading me...but I know you from somewhere!!!

    (You can't hide!!!)

    You need to do more anatomy...and check your values....wait...did I just say that?

    lowpolymatt - I doubt Ross remembers me, but I admire his work very much indeed. Give him a big kissy from me if the opportunity arises. I met him a few times while working on XBox and GC skus of HP and the COS, which might explain why you've heard my name - was it accompanied by vigorous swearing, by any chance..?

    Willdo Matt, I'll give him your regards and all that...but the kissing...well ok but no tongues.

    As for where I know you from...I have no idea....I just know the name from somewhere...no swearing or cursing attached..

    Sketchling - nice pic, really like the angle you've approached, the people in the pic tho, are a little hard to pic out, well. just the guy in the foreground...

    Will post my 'sketch' later, on this 'Derelect-Planet-Factory thingy, not too good with environments as I've said before, but it's an attempt...Crits and advice please.

    Looking forward to Austin, tho, I'm more skint now than ever! It's worth man...

    We all meeting up SOON!?!

    I know Ross D. Not that well, but I've been a great admirer of his work for ages.

    lowpolymatt: are you the Matt that used to hang with Neil Kaminski? I'm Pete Amachree. Remember me? DK II and Theme Park World.

    sketch: that asteroid pic reminds me of some of the production art for The Fifth Element. The composition and colours are looking good.

    see y'all next month

    At the moment it looks like the nat hist museum...or at least thats what Mollyx and I have come up with so far. Very good for characters etc. I think that we should do several studies of stuff we find there and then try and come up with several characters/creatures based on the reference we gather during the day... Then, at the end of the day, we can look at them and crit/comment etc.

    We would then have the month to develop one of them (or more) into a final piece.

    This is very much open to suggestion, but I think its a good idea. Im going to check out the museum this weekend to look for things we could do and draw.

    Ooohh... check this out : LINK

    Large, Hi rez SRI images of insects... thats got 'draw me' written all over it!!!!!

    Sketchling - cool image, and the textures are great but I must admit, it's a bit confusing on the eye. Maybe some bigger bits of steel in the foreground to lead the eye towards the focal areas a bit better would have helped things along. I can't see your comment here, but that second guy's hard to see. Still, I've learned recently that frustrating yourself by trying to learn many things at once is a great way to do a great picture after the one you're finishing right now

    Yeah. I really dont like the image that much... definitly an experiment, but I did learn a hell of a lot on it... number one (seems silly. but...) Lighting... I NEVER set up a defined light source... in ANY of my images. Your drawings made that increasingly clear to me. I gotta do far more drawing from life.

    But tis another step.

    I think you're right - nobody did.

    And Kim - dude, I FEAR your abilities. If you learn everything I know, you will become more powerful than I can possibly imagine, and I'll be stuck here wht no clue. So stop it, go copy off someone else

    And hey all, after a few phone calls today, I'm 90% certain I'll be working in London shortly!! After TWO YEARS of trying! So if it happens, I'm definitely keen to set up a regular weekly meet somewhere.

    well then someone make a topic ^-^

    i think we should get an order of topic makers. so we all know when its our turn.

    and dirty_c, gongrats. london is a great place, i wish i lived there ^_^

    well i wouldnt be able to meet weekly, the coach costs too much. but i can allways meet up monthly, first weekend of each month.

    Right, well I'm out of it again this week, as I have to do a few pics in a hurry for the mage warfare thing. Oh, I guess I can lie and say this is my dwarf spaceman. When he's at home and not in space, and kinda angry : . I need to fix the shadows a little, and the grain on the wood and the light blast up the top of the door, but I'm tryin to rush through a few more, so I'll get to it shortly I promise

    Thanks dirty_c. All your skill are belong to me... mwahahaha.

    By the way, lowpoly and I came up with 'keep away from children' as an idea... kinda open ended, but it could be lots a fun! Basically a character or environment based on a warning label... Im thinkin an environment like a town with evil, pen knife weilding 'friendly' children everywhere, a childs toy with a bite/edge (goo-goo the toy chainsaw or something...?!?!?!) or a crazed elmira-type psycho-babysitter.

    the options are endless....

    Oh, DirtyC... love that pic. I really like the shadow on the face. One thing though is that the wall behind the head kinda pulls my eye away from the face cause its quite light, which is a pity, cause the face is really emotive. Also some surface details on the handle might help to delineate the form a bit more.. like surface contours. Its a very cool image Not really a dwarf... not that mine was either! The point of the weekly thing is to get things going in our heads and make us paint/draw! Which we did. Nothing like group pressure to get one going

    Love it. Keep em coming!!! K

    lousy intarweb!

    for some reason i lost my subscription to this thread, so when i i was checking for new messages in my subcribed threads nothing showed up. I just assumed things had got very quiet...looks like that wasnt the case. Probably just as well, i've done feck all this month.

    p.s. does anyone have any ideas on how one translates ones limited art "skillz" into cold hard cash? LOTS of cold hard cash preferably.

    Dude I have no idea. Everything I'm doing is for free right now

    BUT GOOD NEWS! A month from now I'll be working in the Docklands! So as well as signing up for painting courses and god knows what else, I'll be keen to meet up with concept kids. Anyone else seriously keen for this? Kim, I know you are buddy.

    how well you know me dirty_C-san (bows respectfully):nod:

    Glad to hear yer movin closer!

    As for Pixel herder... um dunno mate. I imagine the more skilled you are, the more likley you will be paid well. what kinda stuff you like to draw/paint... gimme a web adress or somethin. Generally people do it for the love of it... but put a computer into the mix and people seem to be willing to pay people more. dunno how that happened?!??

    Im 90 percent sure ill be there. Natural hist museum is a good idea, though it can be quite hard to sit peacefully and draw, so we must have some idea of what we are doing there before we go in!

    came up with some idea's with Mollyx, but will have to get more definite with the theme when time gets closer... so busy now I have not even managed the weekly thing. AND im working weekends at the mo.

    Gonna be good when it happens. just gotta structure it if we want to get lots out of it.

    Hey Girls 'n' Guys

    HEre's a link to my 'Derelect Factory' no colour as yet, that will be approached in time. Sketchling - I'll email you a copy, like I said - you colour it in!!

    http://img19.photobucket.com/albums/...tory_LoRes.jpg

    As far as the next meet, I'm up for it. If there's gonna be more, then we could split into small groups and wonder round the Natural History Museum, till we find our preference for drawing. Then meet up at an appoointed time, and compare what reference we 've gathered. Then go find a cafe, and use our references and imaginations. to come up with a creature/demoned etc etc.
    Is Sat June 5th still going ahead????

    Mollyx

    Well, Im in. Looks like I got two people to drag along Both workin at mpc.

    will see ya all then!

    P.S. weekly thing's kinda died (been scary-busy), but I was thinking it might be interesting to put together a list of wierd concept idea's people can go to when they want something to draw... throw in idea's and I will slowly compile a list and put it up on my webspace... then we can do stuff when we get a chance!

    cheers y'all - K

    ok, i'm gonna book my train ticket today or tommorrow, so i'm gonna need to know where to meet ect.
    also, i'll charge my phone (i hardley ever use it ^-^) and give out my number sometime nearer the date, so you can all give me funny phone calls ^-^... or to phone me to see where i am if i'm late etc ^-^

    would i need to buy like a subway day ticket or something? i'm guessing i'll be using the subway alot. and how much does this cost?


    ok i'll probably think of a few other questions, its been ages since i went to london, so i'll ask when i think of the, later


    looking forward to this, should be great
