some recent cafe sketches. Also a redone version of a previous layout.
First project of the new year!
My new years resolution was to get better at my painting/colour theory skills, so i figured id start the year off with a hybrid painting. I used one of summer puddings thunderdome entrys (i believe) for inspiration/reference in terms of colours and what works and what doesnt.
Im about 3 hours in.
Comments/critiques are welcome
Man your lines are awesome! The sketchbook pages are really fun and nice. Seems like your colours will be awesome if your starting like this.
I've been keepin' an eye on your sketchbook for awhile, and I'm just floored by your stuff. Especially your character designs.
The new project looks like it's off to a great start. I love the sweeping perspective, really gives the illusion of motion - can't wait to see where/how far you go with it!
Heres an update on the previous painting.
J A K E: Thanks man! Ive flipped through your sketchbook a few times, and ive liked what i saw. Ill pop a comment in it the next time im in it.
Sway West: LOL, you commented right before i posted this! Thanks a grip for the continued support of viewing my stuff Ive still got a ways to go on this, I was inspired by the ridge racer series, and the sweeping shots i can get in the photo mode in Project gotham racing 3! (Im a huge car buff ) Really glad you like it so far
Wow. Bold cartoony style. Enormous energy. Good composition. Keep it up.
P.S. are you going into animation, then?
sketchbook...a kitten dies every time you don't comment
“When forced to work within a strict framework,
the imagination is taxed to its utmost – and will
produce its richest ideas. Given total freedom,
the work is likely to sprawl.”
- TS Eliot
Wheeljack18: Thanks man, I checked out your sketchbook, your on the right track with the studies
Bludhund: Thanks man For now anyways, im currently in my first year of animation at sheridan college. As for when i graduate? well only time will tell.
EDIT: Heres the final for today, changed a ton, got rid of the bubble, thought it was too distracting, the space now is nice. Im just effin around adding the speed lines, dunno if ill keep those.
Started busting out the car references, the first car is a datsun 240z, the other 2 are undecided at this point.

Finished the self portrait, and refined the speedy car thing a bit more.
I feel the car has lost its kickassness as i started to paint it in, so looks like its back to the basics once again for that one.
