    what the hell?! i cant believe nobody relied to these.. these are real awsome sketches.. the looseness.. love it.

    i like the 1st picture.. the angle is very dynamic.. truly wonderful work .. id like to see the 3rd picture of the guy finished... it already looks solid.. the sad expression reminds me of a older picture i did awhile back.. keep up the great work!

    hey!

    Ohh, these are nice, so loose and sktechy, really love them!my only crit would be that I think the "skyfire" is lacking a litlle bit depth - the mountains on the left -but I'm not really sure if that's just me

    Keep the good work, I'm looking forwards to seeing more in that style!

    LordSpewbarfer - Hey, thanks for posting and the comments. I don't know if I'll actually finish any of these, though I might. I'm doing them mostly as compositional practice, with color as sort of an after thought. Some will probably be more "finished" than others, but I doubt that I'll take any to a real state of completeness. But you never know!

    Nike- HEYA Yeah, not sure what's up with the mountains. they didn't fall away quite the way I had in mind. I'll have to play around with the distance thing see if I can get it work the way I want it too

    B-Man - hey, thanks for posting. Actually, these are done entirely in painter. I only use photoshop for post work, like getting them web ready 8)


    farewell to the thain

    good to see u around again man,
    the hunted rough sketch is clearly very nice,
    i think u should carry it further.
    perhaps the tree to his right could use a little stronger perspective
    anyways keep posting man

    Lookin' good. I like the first one, especially. In the last one, the shore line is in an unfortunate shape that makes it seem to almost to envelope the gravity tester. The river, though helping to define the focal point, is adding to that feeling, almost in a "net and line" fashion. If the river were to expand into the bay a little later or more gradually, it might alleviate the feeling.

    Cool, shot, though.

    Eyal - Heya, thanks for the post. I may actually take that one into a full painting, but if I do, it will have to wait until I can push past my current worklaod into some free time. Non of these are taking more than an hour right now, which is about all I have for goofing off with my own stuff. But thanks for the thoughts!

    Warhead82 - Thanks! I donno, I can do a pretty good landscape when I take my time An oldie but goodie: Wizard

    dogfood - dogfood, dogfood, dogfood. You keep pounding on me and I just might make something of myself Actually I *wanted* the shore to look like it was enveloping the Thain, sort of giving a cupped hand or womb-like impression. You know, bunch of stupid symbology type crap

    Anyway, don't know if anyone remembers Berke Breathed's Bloom County, but had that in mind when I did this yesterday

    Pimp...you've got the native canadian (what's the PC phrase of choice for indians in canada?) motif going on there, similar to the logo for the Vancouver Canucks. Sweet idea, subtley executed...I dig.

    JeffZNY - ya caught me! Actually, this one is the first of a series that I've been thinking of doing for a long, long time. Glad you like it!

    I think the MAC word is either Aboriginal or Native Peoples.

    Actually, just more of the whale. I want to do about 3-5 more, depending, exploring different settings and patterns. My primary aim, really, is to show the designs a little more clearly. I've even thought of just following along with one animal, as all the orca have distinctive markings. Not sure what the end result to this would be, but I'm kind of captivated by it.

    This first one is more of a rough, to sort of get the idea down. I want the final pics to be more polished, more visually engaging.

    C.O.W. 4 entry || 02-02-05

    finally got around to doing a C.O.W. entry
    ----------------------------------
    Oregano's sketches & whatnot || CLOSED.


    Ferdinand's Fairly Foul Fowl, also known as the "Venenum Fowl", "Foul Fowl", "F-Bird", or commonly as "that fucking bird".

    This wretched creature’s natural habitat is found in suburban towns, usually located around the entrances to bars and pubs, and has developed a startling capacity for language retention and imitation. However, the unfortunate downside to this development is its favor of more “choice” terms and phrases. Combined with it love of foul language, this fowl also has a foul disposition which does not endear it to other denizens of its habitat. While not physically imposing, or violent, this bird will unleash a venomous stream of colorful insults and descriptions at unsuspecting passersby in a startlingly versatile vocal range, switching quickly from gravel bass to high pitched warble.

    Furthering this creatures less than admirable traits, many seem to be codependent and will follow random pedestrians for miles, often to their place of residence at which point the F-Bird will take up roost outside a convenient window to better direct their unending stream of verbally venomous sewage. Once they select a “host”, they rarely leave, but occasionally can be driven off by playing Neil Diamond, Kenny G, Yanni, Julio Iglasias or similar loudly and consistently for no less than 36 hours (less will only drive the Foul Fowl into a vocal frenzy of further insults).

    Legally shot at primary and elementary schools and across the bible-belt and Vatican City, their numbers are in a sad, steady, decline throughout the northern latitudes. Attempts to save Ferdinand’s Fowl have all ended in disaster, with PETA or Green Peace workers usually strangling the thing after weathering an unending descriptive dialogs on the marital relations of the workers’ grandparents and inanimate devices.

    So, today throughout the world, this unique creature is singing its swan song into oblivion, and none too soon.

    nice sketch thread.

    i especially like the anxiety closet.

    if you ever come out to seattle on the weekends you should come meet up with our weekly sketch night on capitol hill.

    Hey dog. . . . did you see the size of that chicken?!

    You don't happen to have some WIPs on this last batch do you? Looking at the images, I'm curious about the way you work.

    Hey bro, thanks for stopping by and offering the crits in the Finished section.

    Nah. don't have any wips on these. Usually with the card art, I don't have time. It's kind of just slam the stuff together and run.

    Besides, what I'm doing *now* is miles from these anyway, so it would be kind of pointless to post a wip.

    here's one I kicked out tonight. Had to do something a little different and it came out looking like a Jon Foster/Dan Milligan knock off Oh well...

    Nope. No wip on that one either... sorry!

    I like how you did that Dan milligan ripoff one (never heard of the guy ) but it's a nice effect that I can't seem to pull off in painter...of course I have only tried maybe 20% of the media/brushes it has...

    I'd say try and stay on that track, it's nice and has some texture, your other pieces do as well, but kinda look like a too typical piece done in painter...hard to explain but i'm trying to figure it out cause my pics look like that too

    keep it up man, good stuff...I love that oooooold sketch called "hunted" that's sweet...

    you know, i never realized this before, or i needed to see it a few times for it to sink in, but i really like the first sketch in this thread "the hunted".

    the simplicity of it, and something about the tilted ground plane. i don't know, but i dig it.

    Hey dog. . . . did you see the size of that chicken?!
