Some cool stuff in here. The Heavy Attack Crab is seriously awesome... worth the admission fee alone. Also really liking how you are using Artrage, and your pencils are nice too. But where are the DS speedies you promised? I linked here from the setup thread.
You seem to be pushing in all areas so I don't really know what to crit, although I did notice that some of your more finished pieces that feature figures loose a little definition. The different masses tend to become more generic and lumpy? The new zBrush paintover, on the other hand, retains the nice structure, so maybe doing a few more would help the memory retain?

Munin Raven: Thank you for the kind words, and the good crit! Really appreciate it! And I've yet to empty the DS card for my crappy DS sketches.. haha.. thanks for the kick in the ass! Good think you're keeping me to my word
Sorry for spamming today.. little in-between study at work today.. from Benjamin Button this time.. I could not get the colors to sit well.. Can't win 'em all, I guess.. Wil be doing more of these! There's a lot to learn from it.. and I'll spend some more time on the next few I think.. try to get some more out of 'em than I already do
Like I said though.. this was an in-betweener at work, so I couldn't sit and indulge for too long.. haha..
wow I like that zbrush piece! the pose, colors, and textures all work really well; quite the creepy monster haha movie stills are looking great, especially since you're doing them pretty quickly. shapes are legible and you're getting atmosphere nicely in both pieces. not a whole lot I can see to crit, but I see a bit of soft edge brush in the benjamin button piece and I think it's working well. either way keep at it!
WICKED UPDATES an even when im not in here im always here mmmwwWWWHHHAAAHHAAA
Glad to see these great studies! The "From Hell" study is really nice. Overall, your colors and values are convincing, but some planes could be clearer. The shirt sleeve in the Benjamin Button screen is kinda vague; it's hard to tell what's going on there. I think more definitive brush marks could help out, or cell-shading to a certain degree.
Keep it up!
The movie still studies are a great idea I might have to try my hand at those!! Very cool man keep cranking out the work you have come a very long ways!!
ok i thought i commented but i guess i didn't ^^ i would bring back some of the sculpted texture on your zbrush char. on your movie studies i think you could use some more saturated colors in certain areas to make em pop. you're on a roll dude, keep posting
Yo dude ! What's up ! Your movies studies looks cool, values are good, but maybe you should more work on edges, i think it's the biggest weakness in your stuff ! So keep it up !

'nother study.. from "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" this time.. Spent a little more time on it to define areas a little more.. so they're not left hangin' in "couple-of-brushstrokes-land"
Also added some ramblings on the frame.. if it's any interesting to any of you, I'll include these as well in the future
The Following User Says Thank You to dCepT For This Useful Post:
Nice updates, seems like you're progressing well The Zbrush experiment looks nice, and keep doing those captures, I used to them myself and as more people seems to get back into them again, I keep thinking I should them again myself. Keep at it!
hey, looks great! really got the expression, the pose, and the moistness! lol only crit I have is that the top of his head (his forehead area I guess) is flattening out a bit, I guess because of the hard edges along his temples. it is really tough since his hair is dark and it's on a dark background, but you definitely did a great job with it. keep at it!
Meeeeen! Because of your speedpaint I wanna read again "Interview with the vampire", definetly I'm gonna watch in the first free ocassion.
nice work on Wolverine!
ooohh... i make an overpaint at your work, hope this will help you take this artwork to the next level.
Nice update. The color and lighting seem spot on--very convincing. I don't mean the sketch has to be more detailed, but the shapes of your brushstrokes could be more informative. The chest/pectoral area and the trapezius are vague/muddy; perhaps simplifying the shapes.
Really nice sketchbook. What an improvement since you started this book. I especially like the studies from the movies and the nightmare guy. Keep up the great work!

Sorknes: Thanks! Yeah, the movie studies are fun and a great learning experience IMO! I'll definately keep doing 'em.. plan is to do enough of 'em to have the things I learn creep into my work from imagination.. hehe
Onir: Thanks for the crits! Yeah, the hair/temples transition was a problem area for sure.. Maybe I should've worked it a bit more.. I kinda liked that the edge of the hair disappeared against the dark background.. maybe if I defined the hairline against his skin it would've read better?
mariusz: Dood! Been a little while! Hope everything's great in your neck of the woods! I hadn't seen Interview in a while.. definitely cool re watching that.. awesome piece of film! Too bad they really hammed it up with the sequel
YihyoungLi: Thanks! Really good point about the chest and trapezius.. especially the trapezius looking at it now..heh.. definitely something to keep in mind for the next one!
Spaggen: Tack tack Hope I continue making wortwhile stuff! btw: CA kinda bugged out on me when I replied to your PM.. let me know if you haven't gotten an answer!
Do I did another Nightmare character.. they're fun! Less zbrush and more photoshop this time.. I'm definitely a photoshop dood and no 3d sculptor.. Diggin' on painting way more than 3D.. haha.. that being said; zBrush is the most organic and direct method I've ever tried for 3d modelling! Always good to have more tools to work with
Hope ya like!
