    LiquidJack Still Here

    Thought it was time to give up the old sketchpad and begin a new one. I'll start off by showing this project I was working on for a good portion of time some months ago. I learned a lot from it and plan to revise my work pipeline and get better results. I'll post more pages as soon as I can.

    almost done here...Actually I am done. The loading attachment system is a bit over done on CA. Shouldn't have to categorize every blasted thing I load on the board.

    No more scanner so all my traditional sketches I'm doing are piling up. One fine day I will get another scanner. For now all digital:

    Aha!

    About damn time you did something with that old pencil drawing
    The colors really help everything to pop out clearly...

    Now you just need to paint up some more of your drawings

    Great framing of the action in those sequential panels. About the
    only crit I would have is that there is a strong sense of unreality.
    The Figures are to plastic-y and give the sense of posed toys.

    (maybe just a different shader or stripping out speculars would help?)

    Also, they contrast too much with the backgrounds, making
    them seem separate from the world they are in.

    Also, in general, give some thought to more variety of color and
    value schemes. Most of your scenes are set in pitch blackness with
    loads of fully saturated colors popping out. Maybe try some mix of
    saturated and muted colors, or some brighter lighting, or just experi-
    ment with more variety of 'moods' of light and color.

    Have you ever seen work by the artist Sam Kieth? He's probably mostly
    known for the old MTV cartoon 'The Maxx' (which was also a long-running
    comic book). I only just discovered him recently, but his art kind of makes
    me think of you
    sketchbook...a kitten dies every time you don't comment

    “When forced to work within a strict framework,
    the imagination is taxed to its utmost – and will
    produce its richest ideas. Given total freedom,
    the work is likely to sprawl.”

    - TS Eliot

    Bludhund - Hey Sam Keith is one of my favorite comic artist. I used to have the Mtv Maxx series on video, but I think I lost it. The 3D comic is very plasticy for sure. I am still in the developing stages for the next round of this graphic novel. I have come a long wy with Zbrush rendering and I hope it shows next time I put it together. Funny thing about the darkness and saturated color style I work with, another artist gave me the same remark. So I think I will do some work with less saturation.

    This is in work. Ran into lots of trouble figuring the costume out. The Spiderman pattern in 3D need tons of tinkering because of a blurred effect. If I had more POWER in my computer I probably wouldn't have this problem. C&C

    Little drill action. Loomis kinda' stuff. The funny thing is the framing setup did not match the uniqueness of the reference. The woman had interesting proportions....so I mixed the guide with the ref

    Hard to find a moment to do stuff away from client projects. Able to finish this one up and now back to the grind:
