    Haven't posted new work in a year - Things have changed (6/2/08)

    ALL THE NEW STUFF'S AT THE BOTTOM

    Ok, here's some stuff I've done recently. All of it has to do with a comic idea I've had in mind for a few years.

    Main Character (self portrait...kinda)
    Haven't posted new work in a year - Things have changed (6/2/08)

    Random Crap:
    Haven't posted new work in a year - Things have changed (6/2/08)

    More random crap, somewhat older:
    Haven't posted new work in a year - Things have changed (6/2/08)

    Anyway, I'll be posting some of my life drawing someday soon, but in the meantime, I figured I ought to get one of these threads started.

    Let me know what you think.

    Great renderings!!
    How do you actually achieve it?

    Like your metal heads, nice characters!

    What i may critizise is the way you draw/shade muscles,
    look at the muscleman with wings:
    the transition among the muscles is extremely hard,
    naturally it is all about curves, there aren´t really edges!

    Hope this makes sense...

    -Xaya

    more please!!

    nice rendering, I noticed that the ears in your face seems a bit misplaced, look at some references and note how they line up with the eyebrows and the nose

    shading is cool, though

    Help your fellow artists get better.. Post a critique today!!!

    And a new one at 5am

    Then Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" And he answered, saying, "My name is Legion; for we are many." -- Mark 5:9

    My take on Legion. This depiction really doesn't convey my whole idea, but I'm not done yet, so you'll see it later.

    Ok, so I'm not at home right now, and probably won't be till late tonight. That being the case, I felt like it was time to dump off a whole bunch of random crap that I've been working on over the last couple days.

    So...


    Here goes:

    My COW entry for this week: Cute But Deadly. It's based on my cat, Rocky. He's freaking mammoth. No seriously. Also, this one's not done yet
    Haven't posted new work in a year - Things have changed (6/2/08)

    An MSPaint thread on Eatpoo prompted this:
    Haven't posted new work in a year - Things have changed (6/2/08)
    Yeah, I have no idea either.

    2 potential Business cards:
    Haven't posted new work in a year - Things have changed (6/2/08)
    Haven't posted new work in a year - Things have changed (6/2/08)

    And, a tattoo that I'm thinking of getting. I made it a couple nights ago, at like 4 in the morning.
    Haven't posted new work in a year - Things have changed (6/2/08)

    I want to get two. One like the one below, and the other unscathed. Each on my upper arm. I'll probably get the shot up one on my right side.

    I want to know if you draw flash for tattoos

    If you do, how do you do that stuff? Is there any special way the drawing gets on the body before the tat?????

    I like that tattoo, it looks like something Frank Miller would do.
    Good stuff!

    Hey, sorry for not really replying when I post new stuff. I usually post a t like 4 in the morning, so I don't really end up feeling like responding. Either way though, thanks for the replies everyone.

    Xaya - Thanks, I usually achieve tones with a blending stick (tortillion), and besides that I just use a mechanical pencil. Since those ones, I've been taking figure drawing courses, and I've developed a little more subtlety when rendering muscular forms.

    charcoalArtist - Thanks, I'm trying to make my stuff more realistic, kinda. My figure drawing class should help out with that.

    codakromek - Honestly, I have no idea about the tattoos, but I'm told that there's some kind of temporary ink that they can either rub onto from a sheet, or draw onto the person getting it.

    Majofo - Thanks. I've been getting told about the frank miller likeness a lot lately.

    ANYWAY, so that this isn't a completely shameless thread bump, here's some new ones:

    This started out as an entry in the sin city weekly sketch thang over at eatpoo. I didn't really finish it though. It came out a little more Mignola than Miller though:
    Haven't posted new work in a year - Things have changed (6/2/08)

    A random, reference-less portrait sketch. About a half hour, maybe 45 minutes:
    Haven't posted new work in a year - Things have changed (6/2/08)

    And, some kinda painting of some kinda thug that I made earlier tonight:
    Haven't posted new work in a year - Things have changed (6/2/08)

    *EDIT*

    Fixed the links

    At the top, your muscles sem a bit bland, as if they werent right. I think if you are going to define muscles that much, there has to be a heavy light source or they have to be chisled. Almost literally. Other than that, running smoothleh!

    hey hey sketchbook buddy

    Very nice work. I would like to see you do other things though.. maybe some females? It seems you lean towards certain facial structures. It's my problem area too

    I love the rendering on the fat guy, it's beautiful.

    Yeah, that was pretty preliminary. But obviously, there was a lot there that I liked, so here's what I kept:
    Haven't posted new work in a year - Things have changed (6/2/08)

    Gonna start coloring it now.

    *EDIT*

    Started coloring it. Might change some things still. Obviously, far from done.

    Your shading done when inking is very Hellboy'ish. I like that style alot. I also like your robot faces they are almost more like masks, but still suggest more of a robot. The monkey sort of looking robot/mask is really freaky looking in a good way. I can wait to see the comic start taking shape.

    Hi,

    I like your painting the style works and they all look good. On you steampunk girl I think it looks good, but pose looks a little stiff. You should check the anatomy a little but too, the hips look a little short. You've done some sketches with heads in 3/4 view; I don't think the girls head works well in profile; if you turn it 1/4 turn towards the view I think it would look much better. Right now I'm not sure what to focus on, she's looking to her right, smoking on her left and holding a gun down towards the left; If she wasn't smoking then she could be sneaking up to a corner on her right, but the cigarette confusses things, between how she's holding the gun and smoke. (don't take my comments to hard, but analyze what I said.)

    thanks,
    Marcelo

    Very nice stuff. The design elements are quite striking and there is a lot of good value work. It appears that, like me, you could profit from some more anatomy study. In this last one, her left arm (especially the shoulder) is off and her face looks far more cartoonish than a lot of your other stuff.

    Hey everyone, I know I've been lax with the sketchbook support group thing. Seraph Sword PM'ed me about it, and I don't think I ever got back to him. Maybe the SSG-lite thing would be more my speed. Anyway, thanks everyone for the replies so far, and it seems that the concensus is that more anatomy study is in order. So here's a few figure drawings:

    Haven't posted new work in a year - Things have changed (6/2/08)

    Haven't posted new work in a year - Things have changed (6/2/08)

    The First one is conte and charcoal, and the bottom three are probably 95% pencil, and 5% charcoal, for some of the darkest spots. And also, lots of tortillion action. Mine has so much lead ground into it, that I can draw with it now. Actually, in the third one, I did. everything but the outline was done with the tortillion, and only the darkest parts were pencilled in specifically.

    Anyway, I'm going ot be scanning more figure drawings in the coming week, so there'll be more on the way.

    Thanks for looking, everyone.
