Good stuff Gabe. Always good, I didnt read all the post due to my sort attention span, so I might be repeating the same question. When are you going to finish your book? I excited to what happens next. At least give me another page man. Its sounds like I talking bout drugs, BUT I NEED IT.
Im listening to ATB while reading your post, I suggest everyone try it. I, uh, wanna cry.
I'm N Luv with... The Magnetic..., See You Again at the Hynotic Beach... cause it's a Long Way Home...and I was Wrong to Let You Go.. Do You Love Me?
tell me a fable
im attending the master servant contest so last night I started sketching. my concept is that the devil sneaks into hell during gods absense and captures some angels. taking them back to hell as his slaves. he removes their wings to make him feel his own past agony
heres a little close up of the cherub who is going to be holding the haloes of the captured angels
the devil will have golden casing on portions of his wings. these I will 3D model and pose to match the pic. Ill paint over the render. this will help to avoid any difficulty with foreshortening
Ill have more soon!!
cool thread, and really cool sketch- i have a couple crits on it, if you dont mind- looks like the devil could use a tad more bicep, i know it's stylized, but right now his arm wouldn't function... and the cherub is dope, except I thought the ball and chain was hanging from his little plumbing. I would move the ball so it doesn't sit directly underneath the lil guy's wang. great stuff, you have enviable draftsmanship!
Hey man, good stuff.
You have a good ability to create costume and objects.. bringing them into this world. I see a lot of cretivety, but I feel the faces of your characters hold your drawings back a little bit. Your faces seem have a very consistant "typical" look, similar structure, simliar facial features, etc. It the little things like the shape of the eyes, the shape of the eyebrow... I think you could push your drawings and your characters a lot further if you stretched these out
Great stuff anyways.. keep posting them!

No sleep - More draw!
thanks cotron. Your absolutely right! that poor little kid looks like his wang's gettin tugged off! I think though that Ill move it. Quite a tangent. And thanks for the bisep crit. I used ot draw ridiculously big and buff arms esspecially in the bisep region.But when I changed my style for an animation project I started drawing tubes and adding on top thus the macironi arms. ANY WAY I just stopped drawing the bisep almost completely and pulling it out with the colors. but in this case his arm is bent thus implying a flex bisep. Your right again comrad! thanks for looking at my thread!!

thanks eyal. I agree with you! its most evident in the males! the noses and frowns, and the round eyes. Thanks man. Im gonna start prcticing drawing from outside images rather than the formula Ive composed in my head.
check this out!dont like the BG at all, if you can call that one.
so ive got the main portion of my Master Servant preped for paint and even started so take a look!
progress on the painting as moving super slow but heres what I got
Holy Shit Gabe, that is going to look so awesome!!!!
man, this stuff is awesome. I'm so tired, more comments later. Watch out for that suppinator muscle, it's a great muscle, but you're pulling it out a bit too much I think, even for the style, it stands out to me. Also the clavicals seem too separated from the rest of the form, they look like they are on top of the skin in some areas. One more thing on the WIP above...I Don't know much about painting, but I'd try to get in base colors and the general mood of the image all through-out the picture before fine rendering, it's looking good, but you don't want to loose the feeling of the piece, and the "togetherness" of it all with parts that pieces that work well only individually....I hope I'm saying that right? well ttys
N & B
WOAh , nice stuff man.
Love the concept of the last work. Also checked out your work in progress. it was awesome. I always wanted to creat stuff like that with those nice lightings, but ehh, ive got to practise more on my line work first.
Post more dude, cant wait to see what u will come up with the last work.
oh, by the way ive got a friend that looks the same as u, when i saw ur pic 1st i was like OMG, thats .. MUSCULAR. my friends muscular like u too.
Post more, cant wait to see more.
thats fantastic!!!! FANTASTIC! I just love it! especially the on for seattle skecth group competition! i'm getting jealous right now!
HellBlazer demon concept. image too buku. too lazy to change it
servant concept for Master and Servant contast over at CGtalk. this takes the place of the hell blazer.hes like a cross between the swamp thing and voldo!!!
Some really really good stuff here... ill be watching ya !
Some little question, is it ballpoint, or color pencil ?
Only little crit, i find your inks not always same level as your pencil, loose a little of freshness.
But i know how hard cleaning is... So, only a thought...
Cya soon with more work, you got some good things on the way
so I decided to re concept my entry on the master servant competition. heres what ive come up with. I young fairy exersizes her power over her new toy(just like a girl would do over a boy whose slobbering after her). the creature is known in my story as a Foriune, pronounced:for ee yun. he as one of many keepers of the Deepwood. it soul and power is incapsulated inside that case, meant only to be controlled by god or the godlike....though I have no explanation why this fairy has control.
here we go. this is the casing that his soul is in. I will end up coloring this and thats when you ll see the little soul floating around or something. also the mood of the image will be set by this here casing which will act as a lantern and by the moon which will be included in the BG....thats coming soon
this is my little fairy. I wanted to make her more round and kiddish though she would be about 18 or so. her breast will be covered by a wrap that is in the shape of a leaf. she is controling the foriune by controling his soul with her alluring fairy magic. this also will be manifested in the painting process
and this is the Foriun. youve seen him up top but this is the more updated version. plus the lines look more defined. he is of the woods obviously and very ancient i wanted to portray these two things with the bonsai try growing on his back.
and this is the composite. now I need to get some good crits on the composition. I like it. I think that the lines of action are strong but I would also like other opinions before I just start painting.
i ve done the BG for the image. the composite is done very poorly, im so tired.
any way heres a bonsai tree that i was going to substitute for the one thats on the Foriune's back. it didnt fit the composition so I threw it in the BG
Heres the BG before I put the characters in with it. this should be fun to color.
heres the lines with the BG and Characters. it gets really busy but it'll calm down once I ad the lighting and the colors.
I was throwing around the idea of putting another foriune in the BG. You have any opinions or advice? im pretty open minded at this point.
Some things i see:
The lantern of the guy, is almost tangent with the tree in background = Flatten, and hardly readable. And it is almost parallel also, i would break that too.
I dont know if upper right foreground is nice, it is too small if you want one on this place, i would personnaly put a Big nice foreground element upper right, nice and dark, and why not some incredible cast shadows on character, so they dont seem so much copy paste on the composition ?
And careful with the placement of the little woman, she is a little overwhelmed by the guy, we dont see her really clearly...
Hmmm, that s what i see, only my humble opinion, you re in charge !
Hope it ll help you !
thanks ryu! i certainly agree with you aboutthat tangent. I noticed that but hope that when I colored it that would disappear. im gonna move it around though and see what comes of it. Thanks crit about the composition. thats really important to me. I think that the problem with this image is that is so cramped together. this is not a hard thing to change seeing that every thing is done on another layer. and when I color all this craziness will just fall away. i think that the colors will definitely determine the quality of this image. I reall appreciate your opinion. Thanks
i dont know if this is intended but your anatomy (ESPECIALLY on the arms) seems to be off in many places. the wedging of the hand into the forearm looks akward.
kinda like your style though. would like to see more coloured (or finished) pieces.
You have a lot of style in these sketches and I would love to see more of your painted stuff, the frost ape is looking pretty cool
yup dude the sktches are very stylish
your line is crisp and expressive
altough i sense there are extra lines that
instead of adding visual information they confuse
like for example on your comic page where the
guy is watching the prom photo theres an object
in bed i suppose a pillow and has some random
lines inside flying that just dont help make it look like
a pillow at first glance . . . well my comment is
to try make everyline have a meaning in your drawing
to cummunicate to the viewer , style is good and you seem
to do great in certain poses but try some challenge
rotating yoour designs without distorting the proportions
well good luck !!!

thanks for the crit Gabe. Wierd sayin my own name like that to another person. I will be sure to watch out for exsessive usage of lines in the future. heres the BG that Ive begun to paint. still pretty rough, but it ll all fall to gether soon.
so im only paint on the bg maily the stuff that will be seen.
Gabe! You are the "real deal"!
I have always found your character work to be refreshing, I get tired of the plain vanilla faces I see over and over again.
I had not seen any of your color work and was impressed. You have good sensibilities. I did notice that you tend to bring the color up in pieces instead of dropping in the base values and bringing it all up at the same time. I am prone to this as well, that is why I noticed it.
As to the anatomy crits, I'll leave that to those who have already made comments here.
See you at sketch night, Kathryn
okay! finally back at the painting! work has consumed me leaving me with no choice but to sacrifice sleep for what I consider to be the greater cause. Any way this is the skin of the fairy completed. I hope to have ever thing else about her colored by this time tomorrow.
RRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRR!!!!!! Im just a naughty fairy!!!
3 words... I LOVE IT!
thanks syris! I finally begin the main attraction..The Foriune one of many woodland creatures that was created then abandoned by the gods. Its purpose was to protect the forest. its mystical essense contained in the lantern.
I am very confident that this will be the best rendition that ive ever done. I ve been studying prostate sunrise and his marvelous way of painting hoping and striving that one day i may stand with him. long way to go though.
Been a While for me postin. Been so concumed with work and the contest. Well Take a look at what ive done here. Ill pick up from where i left off
last time i posted. I accidentally saved the cropped version loosing all the data on the girl. I had to bring in a jpeg from another file and scale it to size.
image with the BG.
playin with the levels. tryin to get rid of that flat look
added the fore ground rays of light that are hitting the Foriun
and this is the final.
Gabe, shit is looking hella sexy!!! I'm lovin' it. Keep at it playa!
I must say I'm quite stunned. While I'm not exactly hot on some of the themes, I absolutely love the style of the sketches and the process on your pieces. Any chance of getting on the master and servant entry and/or explaining some of your process there?
so this is my next project. Im going to concept, paint, 3d model, texture, rig and animate..A JEDI!!!!YYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYY!!!!TEHE!!!!!
so heres my lines. its a Twi Lek and shes hot!
colors in progress.
nice to have you back my friend !
incredible painting on your contest, maybe you should have done some more thumbnails of composition and value, so when painting, no flat look, or flat compo... maybe a good idea to keep in mind, because your painting rocks,
and your jedi, i want to see moooore
Hey Gabe, nice stuff! I especially like your pencil sketches, and your colouring is FAN-tastic!
Gabe, I really enjoy your work you have developed your own style, and I can really see that you are pretty comfortable with many types of poses etc. Keep up the good work and where is that tutorial of yours for skin texturing i need to get a wacom for skin texturing but, you better believe i'm going to be using it for 2d paintings and illustrations. I'll definitely be keeping in touch. And what program will you be using to model your Twilek. I'm using maya for one of the creatures i posted in my sketchbook. Keep me posted on your progress!

I really enjoy both your figurative work and your painting style Magnetic, your thread is definitly one to keep looking at for inspiration and motivation. Looking at your sketches I see you really have a strong grasp on anatomy. Just Looking at your thread has helped my understanding of a few areas of the figure. Again awesome work, and please keep posting.
dude I am love'n this thread. can't wait to see some updates..... hey, tell me how much anatomy do you think you have learned from school as suppose to how much you have made yourself study? and how would you say you have gone about it? well when ever you get a chance.....in the mean wile keep it pimp'n
Gabe, dude....seein' your work at the local sketch jam was sweet, but seein' all of your work here is friggin' tits! Your MnS entry turned out fab - just wish I could have seen the original concept finished - really was diggin' the direction that was going.
Keep it real!

Nice vivid character!Originally Posted by TheMagnetic
I am looking forward to seeing the 3D version!
thanks "J dog"!! heres some more progress
Damn, awesome. Thanks for sharing.
Edit: Sorry, I'm in class, I just had to post and minimise to hide the fact that I'm goofing off. Anywho, your characters are madly stylised and would look good on a wall. I like the way you have enough of a firm grasp on human structure to deform it in the way that you do. Fantastic work.

I'll eat you.
gabe, the master and servant entry ROCKS!
the lighting is killer, and i love the tree on the dude's shoulder.
one little warning about the new jedi drawing. watch out that you don't cut her off at the toes. i'd move the edge of the pic down to show the whole foot.
Hey dog. . . . did you see the size of that chicken?!
Woha, these are sweet! Very animated and beutifully colored! You keep doing what you're doing, I can't wait to see more
really solid renderings here. love the frazetta spoof. although you and i fall into the same habits of using the same poses over and over in our sketches...we need to learn to find more original forms. other than that i love your work! keep it up
