MattGamer: cheers fellah. I did start a blog once but never updated it. I am trying to update jakegumbleton.com more often now.
Ignominious: Cheers! i did enjoy the flying pigs!
Been doing some more oils but have not been home for a while as my mother in law has been very ill over the last week. Poor things been in intensive care for over a week now. Things are starting to look much better now though!! HURRAH!
Will take photos of oils when i get a chance, for now here are a few more speedies!

anticasper:thanks very much!!
MattGamer: cheers matt. My mother in law is improving day by day so things are looking great now!! The sword fight is just made up without any direct reference.
Updates: this weeks speedies, the sewer village was a 2 dayer so 40mins. The robot in the shade i went over time on so 30m mins, the dark forest i used loose ref from last of the samurai (decided using stills from films is a fine idea indeed!)
Lastly is WIP entry for chow 105.

he he! yes! movie stills are fun to use because they've already been figured out by a DOP (director of photography) and all you have to do is learn the concept behind the scene and implement that into your images. which you are doing very well.
it's ok to go over your limit sometimes. i try to keep my limit under 20 minutes as well, though some images require over an hour because of their coolness. hehe

Great job on the CHOW, dood! The flow through the female character is really good and the clouds are a nice touch. I think the straight, even lines extending from the sun are maybe a bit jarring with the rest of the linework which is sort of sumi-e inspired, right? It's a minor point, though. Just noticed the boy's sword is looking a little droopy, too.
You're on a roll with the speedpaints, as well. The lighting on the guitar/ninja/robot piece is really effective. The sense of distance on the sewer town pic is well achieved but there's nothing there to really suggest the scale of the scene. Some recognisable windows/doorways/chimney pots etc. or figures being repeated into the distance would really help with that, I think.
Like I said, though, you're on a roll - keep on keeping on!

cheers mr reject d. You still have not sent me that form to fill in mate! Will pop by your sketchbook later on!
I have been doodling for sominance war (these are mostly for the 3d entry but some are for the concept entry too. My wife got me one of those moleskine sketchbooks for christmas and i started using it a couple of weeks ago. I have to say its ACE! great to draw on (biro all the way!) and really good to scan from compared to other larger books i have had before. Some of the heads are reffed from the wonderful civilwarphotos.net website.

Great update, fella! Makes me want to get back to drawing in a proper sketchbook. The thumbnail pages are great - chocful of ideas and funky shapes. Your moustache fetish is reaching dangerous proportions, though. SEEK HELP.

Your last sketches are looking very good! I love the details and clothing.
Keep up the great work.
