    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?

    oh man, these are all so cool, so dynamic! I especially love the 2nd to last one on the left, with all the shadows. so mysterious!

    what kind of brushes do you use when you paint in photoshop?

    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.

    Hey HardcorepixxX

    man seeing your sketchbook was one of the many highlights for me in Austin. i love how all of your sketches look really sketchy but still show so much info and how they look like they were laid down with care. after looking over this thread over and over again you've inspired me to start doodling in pen and marker. keep it up

    i finally have some time to update this thread. hope you will like the new batch. mostly doodles. next time, i'll try to post more designs and research sketches.

    bwkeough, thanks. glad you found something interesting. also, the pic was heavily contrasted in photoshop, the spray paint effect is due to the scrappy scanner i use

    syrogen, thanks mate

    main loop, i'm a lucky keeper of 2 pieces from sienkiewicz : a nice elektra sketch and one of the watercolor published in 'pre-cursor'. i love them
    the black marker is a copiic. i used to have pantone trias, but i kind of like the copiic better.

    willschnevel, i mainly use one of the standard brushes (a dual brush 69 pix that is located in the natural brush or dry media set), with opacity pressure on. I also use the basic round with opacity pressure and a round textured with line width pressure. throughout the years, i've made some custom brushes also, but i think the basic round and a textured brush are more than enough.

    skank, i drink coke.

    cue, in case you're a girl with big boobs, we can continue this discussion further. if not, then, errr..... NO

    josef k, thanks man. glad the pics made you want to draw more.

    i am, thank you very much.

    buzzz3d, i liked that pic too.

    utternuts, nice man funny thing to see this in color. your choice of palette is so different from what i use/thought and it works really well imo. it's like seeing it from a new angle, thanks ! also i now see where the lines and shapes should have been different

    dcept, thanks !

    intern, hope you'll have as much fun as i had with the markers and ink.

    red rook, thanks !

    eew, actually i like the dbz stuff. vegeta is still one of my all-time favorite characters. and thanks for the nice words also.

    knowmind/watmough, love your latest pics ! about the taooers, no i don't know any of them personnaly. why ?

    nardfrog, thanks. glad to know this thread is a bit useful to you.

    metalwinds, hey man. i'd love to get back to the acrylics thing ! so different from photshop and at the same, there are direct links, weird. i'll just have to find people to finish the real job while i paint.

    steak-tron, thanks, love your sketches and hatching technique man. makes me want to work more on the hatching and light/shadows.

    sinix, sorry for the wait last month was one of the busiest month i had this year. but i guess it's a good thing after all. hope you'll like the update.

    what can I say man, your dumps are the shit. em.. your shitting gold that is.
    It's funny you mention the hatching, I was motivated to push that further after looking at your sketches. I thought, don't worry about the blends just put em down and keep putting them down to build it up. Constantly feeling the drawing out and re-evaluating it as it's done. I was really inspired by your demo in Austin (man-transvestite-cyborg) . so thanks man, I'm a fan!
