    Cool stuff rook.. much better then sifting through some of ure older work.
    Ure environemnts are really cool, and some of ure coloured Chars are cool (especially the jetpack guy ). Tht heart at the end is really cool, really well sketched, for 10 mins anyway .

    It was probs mentioned before but one thing u need to work on is ure anatomy and position/gestures/proportions etc. some of ure chars are a little off in places, but keep working on it man.

    Nice one.

    umm yea... so i decided to throw these in here to, ill have a bunch more stuff tomorow, to put up. Also need to scan some life drawing and tile them in :X but yea anyway, these were bothe done in irc challenges.


    this was against MIKECORRIERO and it was a creature integrated into its environment. The craziest thing is we both came up with bridges. Anyway the way mine functions, is there are these creatures, relativly inhostile unless provoked.
    They seem to be quite intelligent, and are of rediculouse strength. Also stone or rock constitute part of there biology. What happens is these nocturnal creatures will jump between very steep mountains (think chinese yellow mountains) and form bridges when the light comes out, as they have there tails burried in one mountain and there head in another. This toys with the idea that you could walk along a bridge one day but the next it could have just disapeared. But leaving open new opertunities (my palletter is quite boring on that one ) :

    dont like her much

    and the environment, too much black:

    (was watching the feng dvd at the time, watch for infleunces)

    n the shrimp, the task was "my take on nature"


    finnaly, this was connected with a pseudo newspaper article of the louvre getting robbed.


    all school/application work of sorts, so i didnt really pic the topics.

    These are really great. I especially liked your self portrait, great piece, I love the angle and creativity of it. Great job, man.

    your getting better, i specifically think your color stuff is much better than the pencils. The pencils look kinda muddy. Also dont just draw people standing there, people never just stand there. Make them do something,...just a few pennies of advice,
    keep up the good work

    hum. I love it. I'm beginning to notice that a lot of creatures done by different people look similar. perhaps it's the ape-shakespeare syndome. Given 1000000 years, with 1000000 artists at 1000000 computers, we may be able to create llife!

    Damn you people and your "look, it's high contrast but rendered well anyways in photoshop" skills. Any reason you made the cow shiny?

    teehee.
