    Thumbs up

    good lord someone went and had themselves an artgasm.
    I just thought the same, while scrolling the page all the way down!

    Awesome, just awesome. Personally the spectrum-pic is my favorite!


    Cheers, Daniel

    Oh wow!

    Congrats on getting into spectrum and thanks for showing us your artwork. I really love the design of the clouds. The look so marshmallowy and soft...

    I gotta say I love those little gouache studies..they're great! btw, do you think you'll be coming to the workshop in S.F ? and if you do, I'd love it if you taught a bit on painting landscapes and such with gouache. I think that'd be a great activity for the workshop.

    More Stuff.

    thanks again everyone.

    nardfrog, when i inked it was about 90% crow quill (hunt 102), 9% brush, and 1% tech pen on average, over someone like a jim lee. although, scott williams inked the entire batman series over jim with a brush. that still amazes me. the man's not human. i usually never used any of the felt ones because they would eventually all turn green and fade on me. maybe they've improved since then i don't know. some guys pencils would necessitate me inking them more with a brush. someone like a larry stroman, or whilce portacio would require allot more brush work (raphael 8404,8408 sz .3(or there abouts), and the rest with quill. the brush gives you a much more organic line, where the quill can give you a more crisp and controlled line, it could also become organic as well,just not like a brush. and travis was all by himself. after a while, i just gave in and inked him pretty much with a tech pen, and ALLOT of it with a 6X0 tech pen!!!!! he's one of the reasons i have to wear glasses whenever i work now

    I.was.ink, glad you liked em. i don't plan on going up to S.F. for the workshop, but thanks for the asking me. good luck up there.

    *some more environment pieces. 3 concepts and one final. the world map was one of three images i did for icewind dale's final in game art. it made it into spectrum a couple years ago i think.

    woah! this last snowy one is intense!

    hey thanks for the detailed response! I used to use crowquill cuz they have a great clean line, but I got annoyed with how you could only go a few directions with them or they would jab into the paper. I tried some rapidographs too. I guess I was hoping youd say there is some amazing felt tip for like 4 bucks with great flow. Im pretty sure that doesnt exist.

    I hope you have time to keep posting awesome work - im getting into a rutine of checkin CA all hours after work for inspiration!

    BLAST ON YOU!

    jD Sweet combo plater

    i did the initial figure on this one, and wasn't sure where to take the over all design of it. i asked justin for an eye, and he ended up finishing off this version of it. i liked his take on it...yep.

    Good Lord jdinx these are amazing. The spectrum piece is awesome but I really like that glacier castle piece as well and your comic panels are insane. Looking forward to your updates sir!

    good call Jason - this stuff totally blew my mind! Whats amazing to me is that you have captured the essence of each medium very well instead of forcing them into a certain look.

    I especially like the spectum image and the head studies are completely off the hook. Love the cartoon/painted style.

    I now have a jdinx folder on my HD for inspiration. you own man... cant wait to see more.

    Asolutely Beautiful! Love seeing all the different mediums. Forgot I had seen your work before till I went to your website. Your concept stuff is fantastic. I remember my art director at the time showing it to me and saying, "see, make it more painterly like this". I was over rendering my comps. Next thing you know we're all looking at you and Mullins for inspiration on givng our work that beautuful loose and fresh quality.

    ==================================

    *the elf painting was for a texture map front projection i took into deep paint for the 3D model (BG2). the female was just a concept.

    Maybe you aren't an expert in anatomy.
    But there is a lot of beautiful things in your concepts, colors and landscapes.
    The colors are often warm and this is really a pleasure to look at your fantastic world!
    And you are also a great inkers!
    Great job Man!

    Outrageous range. It's one thing to be a solid inker it's another to command paint as you do. Two farther points in the spectrum I can't think of. Seriously inpiring. BTW you nailed that last one (rust bg) - I had to comment

    Kappei, thank you.

    Mr.Jaku, you're welcome.

    Riddick, thanks man. yeah, anatomy is still a challenge for me, it's my weak link right now. it certainly has never been as easy as some of my other disciplines i've learned.

    KevinP, thank you. that's one of the things that i have enjoyed about my career so far, the diversity of jobs i've had, and how many styles and techniques i've acquired along the way.

    jhales, hey, is this my former art lead from the now defunked IP? where'd you end up these days? do you know that me and vance are down at bottle rocket right now? it's a great team, and the game has some really cool work in it. vance is doing the in game movies right now...you'll all be blown away at what he's creating and coming up with. you'll say..."how'd he do that"!?

    ion one, all time might be a stretch, but i'm glad you like my work, thank you.

    kgb, i appreciate it, thanks much.

    jD

    very cool ladies. I really like the mood you gave the lady in red. One crit though, her right eyebrow is a little pointy. It's not that big of a deal cuz the hair covers it up, but I just wanted to point it out in case you hadn't seen it.

    BTW, are you painting these in ps and painter or just one? and if you are using painter, which brushes are you using for that texture in the bg with the fire and smoke. Is it a custom paper, cuz thats what it looks like to me.

    new stuff

    Iwasink, yeah her brow could stand a little softer edge, or maybe a little more hair to break that edge... thanks. i loved your sketches. nice confident marks. i use both PS and painter 6. i think the area you're referring to i did mostly in painter. i use the glow tool (fire setting). i also used the square chalk tool with a paper texture under it, along with the sargent brush. basically in painter it's the: water color, square chalk, oil pastel, glow, scratchboard, sargent and airbrush tools. i'll use about anything if it can give me my desired look, but these are my main bread and butter tools. i vary the sizes, opacities, grain, and tips to get the look i want as well.

    thanks egets.

    =========================

    i got inspired after looking at el coro's paintings (great work justin) friday night. so i decided to break out the "real" stuff over the weekend. the white tower painting i did outside(gouache), and the hillside image(out of my head) was first done in graphite, then i painted it in painter.
