Hi all, I'm Rob, mostly lurking here these past few months but have a thread in the sketchbooks forum with some of my comic character and "Speedpaint Saturday" art. I'm a writer and concept artist living in Melbourne, although I'm sort of relearning the art side these past few years, having been mental for it as a kid and losing the passion for a solid 10 years from 17ish to 27ish. Anyway, hope you enjoy this "panel" of a webcomic I'm working on where every panel is kind of a full page spread that should, in my eyes, be something worthy of standing alone as art in itself. It's kind of a challenge and maybe overreaching but a way to keep myself interested. Anyway, this fat bastard is named Edit, he's about to call in sick to work because he basically cbf.
I originally painted this out in CS5, then had my wife take some photos of me in a similar pose and painted in bits of the ear, hairline, eyes, hand, shirt texture. I originally wanted something kind of like Dave McKean or Ash Wood, with layered photorealism on top of paint, but it failed pretty damn hard, so I ended up painting out most of it and trying to disguise it with blur. So, with expectations firmly lowered, here goes. Cheers.
And one more tonight, another panel from another webcomic I'm putting together called Tempus Circa.
Call "the scout".
