    update AUG.21.2004.

    dakoscwash > i feel at lost for words quite often myself, that's why i draw more than i talk

    jrr > i'll trade a book for your hi-rez collection of natalie pics (i need to complete mine)...or are you into kiera right now ?

    brkofdon > thanks. as for tutorials, i have some step by steps that i need to comment and upload. i wouldn't call them tutorials because they are not intended to show 'how to do things' or 'the good way'. i'm still looking for a good process myself.
    About the brushes, i'd say the textured brushes are quite tricky, it's like lens flares or volumetric lighting back in the days. it can be useful to add some mood but it's pretty much all about details. imo, details will usually make a bad picture look worse and a good picture look better. once i understood that structure is always more important than details, i think my work was intantly better than before.
    i have a 10mn xvid that shows a typical speedpainting using my favorite brush. i'll try to find some web space to upload it next week.
    and for the perspective scene, i didn't actually draw the construction lines but i used some dots and points to get the overall vanishing lines while i was drawing. in that case, i started from the foreground (the monitors and pole stuff on the left) and then go slowly toward the vanishing point (toward the right side in that case), building the scene as blocks and 3d layers in your head. once you have some practice with perspective, it's easy to draw just 4 dots marking each corner of a bounding box instead of drawing the whole bounding box, then once you can figure out the bounding box, you just have to find the correct way to fit your shape/volume

    Ra Havok, Chaotic Logic, Tomasis, Prostate Sunrise, Pichuerca, RedRook, Dns2k, Bwkeough, Fozzybar > thanks a lot ! you keep me motivated. glad you liked the new batch.

    Crunch > about patterns, i have to confess that i used them a lot some years back when it was the huge thing in european illustration...everybody was adding flat textures evrywhere. everyfuckingpicture was looking like a bad Klimt or even worse, a bad Designers Republic or Buro Destruct ripoff (i'm so glad my backup hd crashed, so no one can actually see the pics i did back then). It became a gimmicky thing, a cheap way to add 'style' but it just loosed all meaning in itself at the same time. i think that pattern stuff works, for sure. but it has been used so many times and so badly at times that it's kind of cliché to use that. so why did i use that again ? i don't know, i guess i'm just a weak person and a bad designer after all.
    Also, i'm very suspicious when people talk about 'style'. To me 'style' is just how you manage to deal with you weaknesses and flaws. As i'm not able to draw something accurately, i'll try to find a graphical 'trick' to make that thing understandable and 'stylish'. so basically, it's more like a weakness than a strength imo. Only a very few people have actually enough technical abilities to 'choose' their style (i think sienkiewicz and mignola are 'choosers', lucky bastards !). hmm, anyway. i guess i should just draw and not try to elaborate some shitty theory about style... sorry for that, i'm going senile.

    Main Loop > thanks. like a lot of people, i've been really influenced by Bill S at a time, he is still my favorite artist (the only 2 original works I've bought in my whole life are from sienkiewicz). I discovered Phil Hale's work only recently, awesome style, definetly one of the most impressive artists i've seen in the past few years, and he has become one of my favorite artists too.


    the new batch is weaker. testing things here and there.

    ohh.. killer ink drawings...I really like the jumping martial artist, that one adidas shoe, the whole pose is so elegant, I can hear the fabric snapping... a sweaty gi feels exactly the way that looks!

    I have to get back into ink, I used to love the way india ink flows and soaks into paper. (I have to get back into martial arts, but it'll be years before I have enough time for that!).

    thanks for your comments and thoughts on art and design, they confirmed and expanded some recent ideas of mine.

    the third from the last image, is the color spray paint or digital noise/filter?

    Man, I really love this thread. Hardcore, I'm so impressed by the way you use ink. It feels so gritty and in your face. Stark, sort of. I don't know, just bad ass. All I can say is keep posting as often as you can. I really enjoy each update.
