hyver's - things and stuff (yup-dated)
Alert: extremely crappy stuff! feel free to browse through the progress shown, but i'd urge you to jump right to the last few pages
**edit: some of the older crappies have been removed with a server relocation.. first post is often updated with newer work (for the thumbnail image).. the rest is chronologically my sketchbook thread since i started my ca.org adventure**

i like the cyclops robot the best, the big one in color
- I like the pose, it say "evaluating situation, calculating, kill or not kill?)
but all bw little robots are also nice
the 3 heads and a lizard is also awesome
nice tight composition, like the dark shirt
could be a bookcover "three fantasy stooges fight the lizard" or something. . . F I G H T - T H E - B O R E D O M . . .

hey h-man! nice thread here homie...
@ bot thumbs: nice, you are a great communicator of shapes - these designs come across as a bit stereotypical, but in the right placing they would definately be cool in a retro way - i like in particular the second (dog) one, and the top one in the second last image. Work one out to completion?
@ heads: these are nice again! the designs look great but in terms of idea development, they all seem very charicaturistic except the bottom mans face on the 3men and a lizard one....he seems to have the most character! Theres a lot of umph in these, sweet as.
@ kleptomaniac: hes got very stretched anatomy but im sure your aware of that......to me he doesnt come across as a pickpocket really, i guess hed have to be in context. nice piece all the same
@ coloured bot: i like this.....but to me the last step seems to be lacking something from the one before it. In the second last step you have a nice set of values and highlites. To me the values look flatter and muddier in the last and it loses some of its dynamics....
the colours remind me of el coros 'look' i dunno if hes an influence of yours, but theres a slight hint of it there.
Keep up the good work, i look forward to learning from you again soon
Your humble student - F (haha)

reply from bottom to top:
Form: - thumbs: i agree there's plenty of stereotyping going on there, and i happen to like the ones you mentioned too, along with the bottom one from the first page (which i'm making a lowpoly version of), and the top one from the third page because he's just cute imo. To answer your question, the wip robot in color is also just one the the thumbs in my sketchbook being worked out.. does that count?
In any way, i might add that to come to creativity and originality in forms and shapes, one must first doodle out the more stereotypical ones. (in analogy with the "every artist has about ten thousand bad drawings in his hands.. it's key to get rid of those as quick as possible" quote, by Don Bluth.. i think - open for discussion)
- heads: just doodles without any premeditated vision whatsoever.. fun to do, but the downside is often that you fall into the same "designs" over again. glad you like some of it anyway.
- pickpocketer: noted. i guess my vision doesn't communicate as well as i thought, so that's good to hear. fipse pointed out his arms being too small in relation to the rest of his slender body, and by jove he is right.. i never noticed untill today so cheers for feedback!
- wip-bot: coro who? ;-) i think that might be partly due to working in oc, and using multiply layers with it... and it also might have something to do with the fact that i, as everyone else on CA, dig coro's work and techniques. can't say that i was actually "going for a coro-type coloring", but i can see your point.
about the steps: again valid points, but i still prefer the last stage because i have a natural aversion towards bright colors anyway :p . at a certain point i realised i broke my own rule not to use more than two bright primary colors in a painting - so the red headlight had to go for sure. i think i'll take it to ps form now on, because the dark grey undertone of the canvas is bugging me in oc.
in conclusion: thanks for the effort to comment and crit - greatly appreciated!
Red_Rook: cheers mate.. we must oc once again sometime.
Fozzy: sweet to hear from you - i miss our daily sessions of sillyness, but i guess you're being smart enough not to come to irc when working... thanks for the comment!
Johannes: apart from what we've covered "live" on irc, thanks again for the feedback - this way i don't have to remember every little thing that is said - my brain has more holes than substance these days.
Funny you call it a cyclops though - as it has actually two eyes (yeah i know - the concept!)... but jens already warned me about the eye thing not being fully clear, which proves once again that it's wise to listen to feedback first, and maybe alter a few things before going berserk with the coloring.
i'll be scanning some more tomorrow (seems form and i have the same scanning problem going on)
