    N D Hill's paint/sketch dump

    Hey

    As most of my time in college as been like, this past few months have been extremely hectic. For a long time, I've been constantly disappointed in myself for not being able to devote the ammount of time to my art work as I know I should. Over the past summer, and this fall, I've really started to crack down on myself when it comes to this. This semester, I was able to enroll in a full-time schedule of art classes and I'm really doing what I can to devote time to any artistic puruits that are sepperate from school. Anyway, one of the few things I wanted to start was a regular sketch/speed-painting commitment. I can't promise that I'll update this daily but I will try damn hard to keep it updated with new art at least once a week, no matter what.

    I guess I'll start by including some recent speed-paintings and a few speed-touch-ups of older work. Expect new stuff tonight before 5:00PM.

    great pics exo !!
    very unique style !

    the dinosaur pic is my fav ! but watch out for the BG in that one, its kinda flat... maybe try to give it volume fog perspective thingy... think of the bg as card board, some trees are on a cardboard further back, so it should be faded more etc etc... killer stuff and post more !!

    Thanks.

    I'll have some more stuff up Friday. My goal is to really really post as much as I can on a regular basis, even if I don't feel what I've done is up to snuff. I don't like posting art that I don't see as 'display-worthy' so maybe that'll be good incentive for me to work hard all week.

    On another note, I'd appreciate any honest feedback I could get along the way. Conceptart.org is really the only place I have to go to for honest critique when it comes to the conceptual design/illustration genre. The art program here at USM is pretty varried but (which is good) but excludes this genre (which is bad). Don't get me wrong, I love it here and I think the instructors are amazing, but they wouldn't know where or how to begin here. I think it's mostly a matter of getting past the "adolescent eye-candy" genre hang-up and the whole question as to the validity of digital mediums.

    here are a few updated versions of my two challenge pieces. These were each done on the last two weekends as design challenges against Rook. I'm really trying to nail down a strong instinct when it comes to lighting depth...Mixed results I'm afraid.

    Here's an update. This was for a challenge where the object was to redesign mythical creature. I chose the Griffin. I wanted to REALLY redesign it.

    pretty cool ideas, i like the giger influence but honestly you should leave the paint alot for awhile until you get better at overall drawing and design, focusing on paint is really holding you back from getting better, you should have a strong foundation before going into paints because its more advanced and most painting relies on solid drawing ability as most of the old masters have really sweet underdrawings they use to guide them, so stick with a pencil for awhile and get good with that, you will make alot more progress.

    Thanks but I have to disagree with the advice to lay off painting. As I said, these are speedpaintings. None of them exceeded two and a half hours. They were done simply out of a need to paint more often. If you want to see more sketches and developed stuff, fine, I can see that. Believe me though, when it comes to painting, I have the exact opposite problem as I don't do it enough and I really want to develop a strong sense of compositional strength, good pallet choice and brush technique.

    Update time. I just finished this. My very first digital self-portrait. I figured I've been here almost three years so it's about time I inflict my ugly mug on the conceptart.org community...And yes, ladies, I'm single. Can you believe it?

    20-40 minutes in painter. Something like that. I wasn't really keeping track.

    i dont know what you really look like...so take these crits with a giant grain of salt...

    The eyes and nose are working for me. I'm looking back and forth between the 2 portraits, to see which things look consistant. I wonder if the eyes are too big though, I think they are. The mouth got smaller in the straight on view..I'm not sure what that means. The one feature that doesn't seem to translate well for me is the chin. it looks overly bulbous in the 3/4th view. also watch how things carry over. the bottom hollow of your eye looks bigger in one then in the other on the 3/4th view too. pretty solid paints though, if a little messy for my taste. you should bring a little more focus to a focal point, and watch the features a little more carefully, and they'd be pretty solid.
    I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.

    hey man, no worries about whether you should be painting or drawing or not...painting IS drawing, just a little different approach. Painting is drawing w/ colors, values and shapes, not than just line. I think both methods of painting and draughtsmanship help eachother out. I would say to paint a lot from life to get a better sense of what really happens in real life lighting situations, etc... and looking at painters helps a ton too. See how they did it, learn from them. That being said, I like a lot of what I see in here. A crit on the alien head painting- try neutralize some of your colors by mixing compliments witht them, and then using pure color for the areas that you want to stand out... like the red areas, mix some green to knock back the intensity a bit. Also, white is usually a no-no for highlights, it ends to make things look dead and somewhat flat. try using a warm color with a high value for the highlights.

    anyway hope the crit helped, keep it up, like to see some more stuff!

    Thanks for the crits, guys. I'll definitely keep them in mind.

    Update time. I did this today. It started as a self portrait but somewhere along the line I decided to just mess around.

    Cool stuff Exo, I realy like the style of your first paintings, how they seem to be painted with a very small brush and you can see each individual stroke.
    Your have plenty of imagination to boot, but just like post more!!!! no wonder no one comments!! just kidding.....
