    'Imaginary Sand'


    ---
    Process:


    1. Rough sketch to capture the gesture and general composition
    2. Reduce opacity of sketch, draw over with cleaner lines, solve problems
    3. Reduce opacity again, draw over with final line work
    4. Apply light wash of value and a tint of color

    It's been forever since I've commented here O_O Great, great work here. The Blademaster piece is probably my favorite one you've done yet. The lighting is wonderful and your story comes across really well--all in all a very successful illustration.

    I'm also really impressed with the precision and simplicity in "Imaginary Sand." As always, I appreciate the process .gif you included. I do have a quick question regarding that piece, though--do you have any tips for achieving that kind of cleanliness and simplicity in your lines? Even with the other layers on lower opacity beneath it, I personally have trouble getting that kind of smooth, unbroken line, and they often come out looking sketchy or wavy. I've heard some people recommend zooming way in, and others suggest zooming really far out. How do you go about it?

    Thank you Meps!

    As you can see in the process shown, my first lines are not at all clean or precise. With that said, those first lines are definitely the most difficult to place. They require the most thought and consideration. Once I have all the information down on that page, the final lines are really stress-free (mostly). It's just a matter of simplifying multiple marks into few marks.

    I try to find a brush that has a nice even texture, with a nice thin to thick pressure transition. (I was going for a pencil look with the last one) I actually tend to zoom in a lot for these lines. That way I can use a larger surface of my tablet for a big gestural stroke.

    The most important thing: "If it's not right, get rid of it!" -Iain McCaig http://iainmccaig.blogspot.com/
    It usually takes me 4-5 tries to get a line correct. If I ever feel that I can do better, I ctrl-z and try again.

    Thanks, Lane! As always, you continue to be helpful. Thanks in particular for clearing up the bit about zooming. For me, the fact that the tablet space is relatively small has been both a convenience and a hindrance. Zooming in to allow larger strokes makes a lot of sense.

    Those strawberries are fucking incredible my friend.

    Also ive been analyzing the last piece youve updated a lot and gathering some information from you on how to block in/render rocky terrain. I hope you dont mind
    And thanks for it too, that GIF image helps a lot.

    I cant critique your work, my technical knowledge is not up to par with yours yet, so ill just say keep working hard, I like your SB a lot!

    I just love the Girl on the pier/ dock thing with the little creature, please render that one up as well it will be fabulous to see.
    I also like working out the back story in the one of the girl riding the big thingy monster and the guy bowing as she rides by. I think that is one of the strongest things in your work mate, the story. You always give us a strong visual narrative to follow I miss that, odd thing to say i know but a lot of the stuff in the WIP section where I lurk a lot is just static poses and lifeless vistas and I keep saying tell a story! make it interesting! etc etc.

    anyway enough drivel, well done and all the best with the work mate and thanks for posting.

    I agree with Lightship69 - great storytelling here. As ever, your brush economy and looseness look great, and I'm really enjoying the balance between your warm light source and the cooler tones of your shadows - that's extremely effective, so keep it up!

    -"Please Don't Go"

    The general's daughter has had a personal bodyguard since the day she was born. "Big Barry" as he is often called, would be considered by most people an odd fellow, being so tall and a bit misshapen. Yet despite his awkward appearance, he is probably the most capable soldier on the palace grounds. Some say he single-handedly fended off dozens of enemy soldiers when the general fell injured in the heat of battle. I suppose that's what it takes to be trusted with the life of the master's only child.

    While our general has spent the better part of each year away with the troops, "Big Barry" has spent nearly every hour of every day by the daughter's side. He has become both a close friend and caring father figure. At heart he's a very charming man, who through his joyful humor, shares great wisdom. But for fear of appearance, few have ever discovered his true nature.

    Today the captain of the guard was replaced by a most despicable man. He's a short angry fellow, who has not looked kindly upon the large deformed bodyguard. So much was his disgust, that he has just ordered Big Barry to the front lines... a destination from which few soldiers ever return.

    Alien Concept - Splincer



    Splincers are agile alien predators with sharp bone extremities. Although lacking in strength and intelligence, these fiends are extremely fast and aggressive in their pursuit of prey. Using their large protruding teeth and claws, they latch on to the backs of their prey where they are nearly impossible to shake off.
    They tend to hunt in large packs, which allows them to overwhelm even the largest of beasts.

    If you must enter Splincer territory, it is advisable that you wear heavy slash-proof armor and equip a very large mace. While you should always wear a sidearm, you will find that Splincers are extremely hard to hit with automatic weapons due to their slim figures and swift movement. Some have found success using shotguns, but many unfortunate adventurers have found them far too lacking in ammo capacity.
