Hola mi guen!!! merry freaking Xmas dude, you seem to be
getting some real hardcore creature desings man, keep working
on that process, now Im gonna find this thread that you said Mike
was running, I just got all curious; the desing for your waterlope
is looking good, myabe you could spice it up a bit by looking
at some shot of deers running and jumping and to make
a more dinamic posse for your creature, right now it looks to
static (and even tho I get you wanted a shot that was easy to read
maybe for a 3D modeler) I belive you can make it a bit more
natural in terms of weight and balance by looking at how some
four leged animals stand, I think you maked the legs to even,
animals do shift weight on their legs in a similar way as humans
do, you could do some experiments to find a posse that is good
readable and with a nice sence of weigth.
Not that I know how to posse an creature very well, this are just
some thoughts I cooked rigth now, dont forget your salt while reading
my posts he he.
you're getting there with photoshop, mate! But first of all comes sketching/traditional art The cleaner line with less randering really catches you You should do more line drowings - just the construction with very few randering - see how it goes!
mentler: You're totally right about the atmospherics! I'll be sure to correct it. Thanks for the crit!
Mindflaw: Thanks, man! Yeah, well... that was emily_g's suggestion to make it more... aqua-green-ish-sort-of Got some more coming with that creature soon... gonna do an ortho and some movementstudies as well.
Polonoid: Thanks for the kind words! Appreciate it!
Qxzi: Yup... Mentler was right indeed Like I said, I'mma correct that soon.
Pencilator: Yeah... I'll give you a heads up when I know anything.. Money could be a problem for me as well, but hopefully I'll get to go.
Miau: Thanks, man! Appreciate it!
maxetormer: Thanks for the crits and thoughts, man! Like I said above, I'm going to do some movementstudies of it as well, so those will (hopefully) turn out more dynamic..hehe..
Icey: Thanks for the tip! I'll try that out.
johnny78: Hey, man! Thanks for the asspat
I've been out with a cold the last few days (yeah... excuses, excuses), and what little art I've been up to has been in my sketchbook with my pencils... was gonna post those now, but my scanner died on me... so I've ordered a new one, and I'll post as soon as I get that sucker set up
So for now, I'll post a WIP of a pic I'm making after seeing one of the DSG-topics... I figured I could make more of an illustration out of it, rather that just a sketch..
The waterlope came out great, still waiting for those action gestures of it though, heh.
The last illustration is promising, I know it's still a wip but I have to mention it, the face of the spidergirl express fright rather than the nightmare-ish look I would've presumed. I got the impression that she woke up with those spiderleg-fingers and this is her reaction.
Would like to hear your thoughts about it.
Lunch: Good call! I've revised the face several times already... It's gone from cute, to scared to happy and back to scared apparently I'm getting me some ref. for the next update... I am trying to get the nightmarish feel in there..hehe.
Hurricane: Thanks for the props, man! I'm at least gonna try to get there the 13th. Shouldn't be a problem, though! Have a helluva newyears you as well! Here's to all your dream clients running down your door
That Fat Kid: THe damn postoffice f***** up my order today, so I'll get it tomorrow instead... I was so bummed when I SAW the damn thing in their shelves, and they're telling me "No..... you see... I haven't got the number that identifies the package....so you can't have it" And I'm going "DUDE! I printed the release form from the internet a few minutes ago!! HERE is the number you need!" And he goes something like "Appreciated, but the number hasn't arrived HERE at the post office yet..so I can't release it" I'm going "Seriously!!!! I'm holding the frickin' paper with the frickin' number right here!!" And he repeats his inane apologies...in my minds eye, I'm kickin' the guy through the shelves, emerging from the post office with a big satisfied grin and my scanner... didn't happen....damn... I'm bummed.... Sorry about the rant...
darkgenius: Hey man! Cool that you like! Have you posted a WIP of it?
shyam: Oh, dude! Thanks! I'm diggin' on your SB as well!
Just a really badly taken photograph of a charcoal drawing I did of my brother. Tried to get some taken of my oils as well, but that will have to wait until I get a better camera and more light around to my apartment I'll update this post with a better picture of this drawing as well.
Aha! I know that man!
You did a good job on your brother. It looks very good. The mood of the colours and enviroment makes it look like what happened in the picture happened a long time ago. I like that!
The only crit I can think up is that his hair looks kind of.... painted on? You know... like if you made a texture for a 3Dmodel, and the hair is part of the diffuse map.
As for the gun, yeah! I've done more stuff on it. I forgot to show you last time. hmph...
as for that post office guy, you should have gone all Musashi on his ass!
