    nice stuff, i'm sure you'll come with some great stuff, im watching more than ever !

    BTW, what dvds of gnomon do you have? and found interesting ?

    I understand so much you're feeling, it just like me. I lack of confidence. One week ago, i made some little thing, black and white. My teacher liked it a lot, it gave me a punch, and i have 3 others, i think better already, and soooo much fun !
    With technique, you become good, but without confidence, you're nothing.
    Funny thing heh?

    Letís see...

    I sketched from Scott Robertson vol1: basic perspective form drawing
    and Feng Zhu vol 1: design process fighting robots.

    They both had lots of great tips in them but I found the design process DVD much more helpful (I don't do perspective drawing very often). The process is very free and intuitive... just playing with shapes, balance and repetition. Itís great for getting over hang-ups and fears. I sketched along with both the DVD's. That was the best part because I can't learn from reading books or watching lectures I only learn from doing things. It was exciting because I would be drawing along with Feng and about the time that I would start thinking that a certain part of the design wasn't working was usually about the same time that he would erase it and try something else. Itís so helpful to see other artists work evolve.

    I'm going to be looking at some of the digital matte painting DVD's this week...

    some sketches from the Agent44 sketchbook...



    I like these characters (they have a lot of personality) and I'd
    like to play with them some more and maybe create a scene...

    from last night...





    I'm not sure how I feel about this painting. I was trying to
    stay loose and just focusing on color but I think
    my edges and proportions suffered a bit because of it.

    digital painting test...



    This started out as a quick sketch from the Iguana (a comic by Mandrafina).
    I liked the pose and mood so much I decided to try and paint it. I started off just trying to find some flesh tones that had the right mood to match the pose and then I found a Dan Brereton painting that had the right mood and a background that added more story to the image so I used it as inspiration. In the Brereton painting there is a female super hero in the foreground and in the background the cityscape is lit up by a bunch of rocket ships taking off. In my version there is a scruffy looking male superhero in the foreground getting drunk while the city burns behind him.

    Great stuff here, M. It's cool to see how you use other artists as reference - the breadth of styles here is impressive, definitely can't pin you down to one style. I miss seeing your new life paintings. Keep it up!

    Ryu- No the last one is from a Manga called "king of bandits".
    I changed it up a bit but its still not original. That painting and
    the new one below are studies to help me with an original
    project I'm starting this week. I did a photoshoot over the
    weekend for reference to help detail the illustrations of the
    characters I'm working on for a fantasy sports game.

    I looked at some tablet PC's but I was never happy with the
    responsiveness of the pens that come with them... they are
    obviously designed for writing instead of drawing. I have a small
    vaio laptop and a small intuos3 wacom tablet. I set the tablet on
    the keyboard of the laptop and then use the buttons on the
    intuos for my hotkeys. It works pretty well now that I got a large
    capacity battery.


    This is my sketch from last night. Its from Mathieu Lauffray's
    Proto 2003 book.

    I prefer the pose in the sketch but the model
    kept moving so I had to change it.

    Here's my first pass at the colored concept for my fantasy
    sports game. The sport is a mix of rugby, hockey, American
    football, and gladiator combat. The figure is doing a salute to
    the judge. There is a judge that presides over the game and
    often decides who lives and dies so players always make sure
    they salute the judge before stepping on the field.



    I still want to change a few things before doing the final.
    The arms and legs have a better flow and rhythm in the
    sketch and I'm still not happy with the bat. The players
    use something that is a cross between sword and a cricket
    bat.... right now it looks and feels too much like a sword so
    I really need to nail down what I want it to look like.

    Here's the second one....



    I think this one is a little more successful. The bat feels more like a cross between a sword and a cricket bat and it also looks big enough to hit a skull with. The only thing that really bothers me is the skull. I ordered a skull as a prop but it hasn't arrived yet so I had to do that one from my head.

    here's the original sketch...

    Sketches from "Allo Allo" (an old BBC comedy)



    And a second pass on one of the fantasy sports characters...



    I'm really happy at the implied line between the shadow
    along the top of the skull and the cloth across the chest.

    The cast shadow on the ground is going in the wrong
    direction for the lighting but compositionally this shadow
    direction works best so I think I'll leave it.
