    Wow, amazing job on the drow assassin image--it turned out really good! The rendering on this last piece is top notch.

    jinny - Thanks! I've been letting gestures slip, I should go do some...

    Shadow Stalker - Thanks a ton, I'm happy with it. =)



    Here's today's offering. First, this one's a bit over a year old (I think it was in the first post on this SB, before I blew that out to update the thumb) but I spent a couple of hours repainting bits and pieces so I could keep it in my still-somewhat-sparse portfolio. No huge changes, but I fixed up her face and hair, and pushed the lighting a bit here and there. Looking at it now, I think I might have oversaturated it a little. Hrm. Might not be quite done yet.

    Year-old original here.

    Attachment 1537171

    Also, a colour thumb thing for the last new image I'm hoping to squeeze out for the portfolio before heading off to GenCon. I'm seriously lacking in full figures, multi-figure compositions, backgrounds, action, etc, and so trying to cram as many of those things into one picture as humanly possible. I guess it's still a bit lax on the background (snow is about as lazy as you can get) but I'm ALSO hoping to counteract the overwhelming orangeness of my body of work. Seriously. I like orange way too much.

    Tomorrow, I shall shoot some ref and pray to the art gods that this thing turns out well.

    always good stuff in here, and how i love your use of colors!
    that girls legs confuses me a bit, im not really sure which leg is which, i guess its the skirt that makes it look like its the back leg bending over the front, altho that makes it quite an awkward pose x)

    rumpenstiltzkin - Thank you, I see what you mean about her legs (they're not supposed to be crossed) so if I get the chance, I'll try and clarify that.

    Starting in on this. Only managed a couple of hours yesterday due to not shooting ref until like midnight, though this was the most in-depth reference shot with the most people I've ever done. Thanks, guys!

    Controlling the space and keeping the composition from becoming cluttered is my big challenge here, I think. So far I am emphatically failing, but I have two days to beat it into submission.

    Dahlium - Thanks!

    Hayden_Zammit - Yup, whenever I can. Half the time, it's just me posing with a timed camera, but for more complex ones with interaction, I get friends involved. When I have a little more time, I'll post a couple of the ref shots for these recent images. (The ones I have permission to post, anyhow.)



    SO I TOTALLY DID NOT GET THIS DONE TODAY. I have one more day before leaving for GenCon and my To Do list tomorrow is 8 miles long but I will get this done somehow. Just need to work out the background and that stupid rogue and maybe find a way to make it look less cluttered and unfocused overall?

    Heading off to GenCon in a couple of hours. No daily posting 'til I get back. See you all in a week!

    BACK FROM GENCON! It went well! Now I've gone a whole week almost entirely without drawing, albeit for good reason, I'm feeling a bit rusty... here's some gestures and a screencap study to try and get back to it a bit. (I've got Fan Expo coming up in a few days, and so will be missing even more posting time. Conventions!)

    Attachment 1543713

    The cap's from Blade Runner. It's a reasonably questionable Harrison Ford. I need to put some real effort into working on likeness, I think.

    MeteorCat - Thanks!

    HEY, IT LOOKS LIKE IMAGES ARE BACK. YES. SKETCHBOOK, I MISSED YOU. Admittedly, I disappeared before the site outage (Fan Expo and other things) but now, barring further CA outages, I should finally be back to daily posting again. =D

    I don't feel like uploading all the crap I've done since the site went down (especially ton of gestures, meh), but here's a couple of things.

    Remember this guy? Picked it up again to finish it up. Finally calling this done.

    rumpenstiltzkin - I KNOW, RIGHT? So many people updating! Man, I missed sketchbooks so much. Thanks. =D


    I have no idea when my default noodling around became drow, but meh. This is clearly not finished, but not planning to take this any further. There's some stuff I like about it, but the head/face anatomy is pretty seriously suspect in some areas. TOMORROW, HEAD STUDIES.

    Or maybe not head studies. Maybe gestures instead. Drawing Script, a few 60s, mostly 90s.

    Great body gestures! The pen strokes looks so easy, very impressive! This is something I struggle with and want to be better at.
    The two photostudies in #495 looks very elegantly made. The few pen strokes puts the pictures together perfectly.

    Greenhouse - Thanks a lot! I've been working on stroke economy for a while now.

    kevin_ - Thank you!

    Aaron_ - Thanks a lot, obsessive ref linking is kind of my thing. =)


    Head study. I wanted to do a few, but spent too long looking for good ref, and now it's like 3:30 AM, OH WELL. I keep doing this, I need to get a folder together or something.

    rumpenstiltzkin - I assure you, it does not feel easy. D:

    Trying to get back into these quickie photo studies; upping the time from 15 to 20 minutes. I have no idea why I feel the compulsion to put those rough borders around these, and nothing else - it's not like I paint them that way, but for some reason it just makes me happy.

    Shadow Stalker - Thanks! Getting super busy can make it hard to work on art, try to make some time every day even if it's like 15 minutes... that way you don't lose all your momentum entirely. =)

    Gpozzo - Thanks a lot!

    Head from imagination to see what, if anything, I'd absorbed from the studies. Think I did pick some stuff up, though I'm still falling into the same pit of androgyny that always plagues me. Keep going for strong jaws and pronounced bone structure that just looks weird on women.

    Also, man, I need to work on eyes BAD. And noses, and lips and... everything else, really. But eyes x 100.

    Yeah, you're right. Just had a lot to deal with recently (a death in the family, a hurricane, a co-worker quit, excuses, excuses). Seeing your work inspired me, though, and I came up with the composition and design of my next illustration! Thanks!
