Din, these are really nice starts, but did you mess around with the brightness at all in photoshop? they look kind of blasted out and bright. if thats how they are in real life, then i think they could use some more contrast, as in more dark darks...a little more definition through line would really push these, because as they stand right now, you have bright whites (that may actually be taking to much precedence) and middle greys, without those dark darks to block it all in. see what you can do to make those guys really pop out. i'd say that right now, that dragoon character is doin a lot more than the first one, but i want to see more of your work. so keep posting
-cburt- yeah new scanner...though I sometimes have a slight tendency to draw lighter than I should I could adjust it a little on my old scanner, but there is not enough play with the new one. I will adjust I think.
since I been gone soo long I will also post some sketches from the time missed
This one is called "Building Art2" unfinished
And some concepts
alright, good to see you posting again! the building art picture is awesome and the armour on the soldier below it is cool too. you do seem to be losing some sublety in the scanning process. it's tough because your stuff is so lightly detailed. I really dont like the gray background of the last few though. you should probably avoid that. anyway, great posts. I cant wait to see more.
my psychic makeup is all over the place
hey jason has told me you got a sketchbook now.. its about time!!!!
all the crits on your levels issue is right. either scan your work and bring the middles up more so the graphite will be darker and less on the bringing up the highs or either with pencil shade in the darks darker or do that in photoshop or even throw a darker shade for a background so it carves out the characters silohuette if that makes any sense..ive always loved your ideas, your rendering skills are stronger! you definetly have a style!
i hope you can keep this as daily as you can!!! we need more!!!
w0aaa.. what a damn nice shading man.. O_OOOOOOOOOOO
cant explain *speachless* :/
very nice nice nice more more more !
This is damn, nice stuff, uve got the shading down to a pin head, excellent stuff though.. id say ure rendering defintly needs more darks and contrast, youve defintly got the nice bright highlights which look immsenly real but u have no nice dark spots to bring them out. Apart from that there are really nice, the last post are much better and neater.
Keep it up.
Not much new, I recently got hooked on Smallville, its eating away at my personal art time only a few episodes left till I will have seen them all...till season 4 comes to dvd.
requiem-yeah I am losing detail in the scanning process, I may have to get another scanner that picks up the details, even in the ones I shade dark it still doesnt come out right
brkofdon- yes must work on that daily part...I got the non-daily down though
sideshowbob- thanks more coming soon
PHATandy- I will try to "keep it up" THX
and now some art
this is a warrior guy some detail lost in scan of course
this is a drawing I was doing for someone and thats why there is no face
and this is a 7 month pregnant woman, I drew it when my wife was 7 months pregnant...this is not her
hope you enjoy, and hope to post soon...
hey you updated! sweeet! your designs are NICE! are you adjusting the levels when you scan them or is this how they look originally? how do you start off your drawings? in your highlighted areas they are so blown out that its hard to see any pencil strokes/lines to define the structure? ..so im just curious as to how you approach your drawings? and how are you shading ...are you using some cross hatching technique? anyways good update! more please!
...oh and last question what inspires you to come up with some of your ideas?
Finally Im back with an update for you, I should call it the Monthly sketchbook, I hope to post more often..
some quick characters
that is all
This is a sheet of concepts I did in the last couple days...hope you like it
post again soon
wow, great stuff...love them all, but most of all that "building of art" and the faceless one...
Looking forwards to seeing more!

you have a really great knack for lighting and use of value...very interesting peices! How old is your little one?
That there is one damn fine coat you're wearing....
my CA sketchbook
great buildings here! I think it'd be fun to do an open canvas with you two, but I hear your wacom's screwing up...
my psychic makeup is all over the place
brkofdon- Soon...yeah I can do some color sketches when I get a new Wacom pen, I would be interested in doing open canvas after I get my new pen. Of course does that need a high speed connection?
Nike thanks I hope to post some stuff soon
plsangel my daughter is 12 days old today not getting too much sleep that for sure
requiem I will get a new wacom pen soon, as soon as I order one. until then I will work on my mouse skills
you dont need a fast connection for opencanvas at all! it would help.. but its not mandatory. well i hope you get a new pen soon so we can get that going!!!
keep us updated!!!
brkofdon- My Pen should be here in 2 days!!! woot then I will attempt to secure a copy of the "open canvas".
Keepiru-maxetormer- thank you two for the kind for the kind words I hope not to let up too much, let the work flow.
A small update and not very concepty, and I still hate my scanner, but I was told I can buy a new one so tomorrow thats what im going to do. Then after that its on to world domination, if Im not too hungry.
enjoy if you can...oh ya the guy on the left is british
great work i really loved the way you use lighting. looking forward to updates...
