    Alright so... here's another update.

    Just beginning to do more studies for my character design, and also getting a better grasp on digital painting.
    I think I missed an artist of the week this week, so I'll have to do one late. Let's see...

    Artist of the Week! This week it goes to: Jason Rainville!

    This guy is pretty much the epitome of work hard and you'll become awesome. If you look from his first page to his last, there is such a drastic change. Not only has his style completely changed, but his skill has increased like 100-fold. It is kind of an amazing change from then to now. Either way, you should definitely check it out. His art is amazing!
    Let's see... pretty much just been up to school and work, with digital painting and things in between. I've been kind of thinking about the upcoming summer, that's going to be a tough one, but hopefully I'll be able to land an internship somewhere and work for an art house during the summer. Either that or really crank up the volume of art so that I can finally land that freelance gig or something that everyone keeps talking about.
    Either way, I can't stop the train... not allowed to get off yet. Must get insanely good.

    So, here's the art...

    Revolver Study and Imaginary Revolver

    Title: Revolver Study and Imaginary Revlover
    Date: February 2, 2012
    Medium: Photoshop

    Notes: Just trying to learn how a revolver works so that I can make one up for my character.

    Great stuff mate. It was a while since I visited your SB. But I can see that you're doing fine ;]. I don't even have an advice you are doing right stuff at the moment. So keep doing them and you'll be all fine. Cheers

    Cora Sample Turnaround

    Title: Frankenstein's Monster
    Date: February 8, 2012
    Medium: Photoshop
    Scale: Original is 3000px x 3000px

    Notes: Ashley has been reading me Frankenstein, so I decided to try my hand at a 'master study' of the monster from Mary Shelly's Frankenstein. I think that's Robert DeNero, but I'm too lazy right now to look it up hahaha....

    Notes: I was actually all set-up for a serious, long-term study... but then I discovered that we were done reading for the day in like 20-minutes... OH! By the way: The most annoyingly-overused word in Frankenstein: "Countenance". Read the book and you too can be annoyed with that word!

    Cora Animation Sample

    Sketchbook... Round 2! FIGHT!!

    Title: Cora Animation Sample
    Date: February 8, 2012

    Notes: This part of the character is fully rigged, I'm going to do replacement animation for the hands (which is why they look like jumbles). It can be posed in any way.

    Well... that's all for now. I think I'm going to fall in bed now.

    So, let's see... what has happened since we last talked...


    Artist of the Week! This week it goes to: bloodtaster!

    If you look at this person's work, it has an almost painted look to it, even though it's in digital. Some of it more than others, like for example: the painted style of this is almost reminiscent of watercolor work. It's a very unique style and I really think it's interesting. Let's not forget the amazing amount of detail smashed into each illustration as well... Great job!

    Well, I actually just recently got SUPER inspired by SIXMOREVODKA and the amazing things that they are doing. I mean, not only is my favorite artist the owner of his own, talented studio, but he also seems like a cool guy as well. The entire team over there pretty much blows me away, so much talent, so much awesomeness! If I keep working at it, I think I'll get there eventually.

    Other than that, just pretty much been working a ton more on my character, still quite a bit to go, but I have the turnaround all split apart and I am starting to model out the hair and change all the directions of the limbs and things. We're supposed to do a thirty-second dance number with our character when we get it down solid.

    Ashley finished reading me Frankenstein the other day, it actually had a much different ending than I though it would. Either way, it was enjoyable for sure... Dracula is next on the list, I hope it will be good! Although oddly, through all the incarnations I've seen / read / heard, I'm not sure how much of it will be new material. I guess I should be careful throwing that out there though...

    Anyway, time to toss up what you might've come here for... ART!

    Color Studies -- Chromatic Grey - Mixed

    Title: Color Studies -- Chromatic Grey - Mixed
    Date: February 10, 2012
    Medium: Gouache
    Scale: Original is 7" x 10"

    Notes: Chromatic Greys are a strange concept to grasp, they are muted colors to the point that they become grey with a tint of hue to them.

    Title: Cora - Mask Variants
    Date: February 10 - 12, 2012
    Medium: Graphite
    Scale: Original is 9" x 12"

    Notes: I'm trying to modify her mask to reflect an animal. So I have a few more since this, but I have to ask... if anyone can think of something natural in nature that is not identical on both sides of it's face. This was a hard thing to think about... if you have any, just comment below and I'll try to make sure to test it out on the mask itself. Thanks!!!

    Title: Cora - Realism
    Date: February 11, 2012

    Those hand animations are really cool :> I find animation very hard so I didn't dare to start on animating hands yet xD
    Those colour studies seem very complicated, I wonder what logic was behind it XD

    Artist of the Week! This week it goes to: Jackdaw!

    The style of this artist goes above and beyond basic concept art, they are like a master conceptual artist! Not only that but they seem to have a very painterly style when they approach the digital realm. I'm also giving them a super nod for the fact that they still draw in pencil, something that is seriously lacking in this day and age. Keep on doing your thing!
    So, if you haven't noticed... my blog list to the right has seriously bumped up in the amount of artists that I follow... I don't know where I found it, but basically there was a huge list of good art blogs on concept art the other day and I just went through it page-by-page and added all the artists that I found really interesting!

    If you get a chance, you should check them out if for nothing else than to fill your artsy brains up with sweet art and leave it flopping around on your desk trying to grasp at some semblance of order to get back to your art with.

    Annnyywaayy... so I've been pretty much drawing and painting like crazy lately, hopefully it will start to show some nice progress soon. I think I'm going to start doing some color studies using movie stills, especially since the shows I've been watching lately have been getting some super dynamic angles and lighting.

    Just doing more and more art and staying up later and later lately. I wish I didn't have to sleep... at least the Twilight vampires have one awesome thing going for them... the whole 'not sleeping' thing. Although I wouldn't want to be so glittery... that would kind of detract from any sort of 'manliness' I would have.

    Werewolves are where it's at. I mean think about all that power. I should draw some werewolves sometime...

    I can't wait for free time during the summer. I'll say this now and probably regret it and super procrastinate when it comes around, but... during this summer I really plan on getting some things together. Maybe going on vacations or at least good outings with my special lady friend... Drawing and painting my own stuff... getting some good movie / game / etc. time in...

    Enough ranting though... I have more work to get in, here's that art...

    Photostudy

    Title: Cora -- Journal
    Date: February 16, 2012

    Title: Randomness
    Date: February 17 - 19, 2012
    Medium: Graphite

    Notes: I couldn't stop staring at Marko Djurdjevic pieces and Wes Burt pieces... and they inspired this randomness. I really like doing these, I might make more of em later.

    I like your pencil sketches, they're coming along real nicely!

    Remember that generally, highlights don't get convincing by adding white, and conversely, dark areas won't look convincing by adding black. Specifically I'm referring to your metroid painting. A few still-lifes should help you with this

    Keep it up!

    Good pencil skills are clearly showing here!
    Also I like the photostudy of the girl, I wish you'd used line thickness more properly in that sketch though, to show the viewer what's closer and what's farther away. Notice one of her arms is farther away while the other one is closer, but the one that's farther away gets a thicker line around it. It creates sort of a confusion as you try to bring the wrong arm closer to the viewer.
    Anyway - Cheerios!
