    Twiggy looks absolutely awesome, man. Spot on. (looks like a bitch to model, though! )

    Keep up the daily work.

    daestwen I'm trying - real life work has a way of getting in the way though >( Glad you liked Twiggy

    davi - thank you kind sir, though I must disagree. Your's pretty well rocked too. I loved the concept. Far more interesting than a warmblooded spiderchicken looking thing (mine )

    MattGamer - why thank you. You are far, far too generous with your praise

    ninjacat11 - Thanks!

    MarkWinters - Thanks Mark!

    Okay, more pages. Though these are kind of sparse - as noted above, work has been getting in the way. I hope to step it up again over the weekend!

    All the best,
    ~Oreg.

    Love the water color creature! The eyes are great & I love that you gave him a lizardy pattern. The sketches of people, while good, seem stiff compared to your last few creature sketches. Looking forward to more!

    Yeah, the water colour critter really caught my eye. Nice.

    Is it digital water colour or water colour water colour? Can't tell anymore these days.

    More of these please!

    MarkWinters - yeah, the last few have been kind of stiff. Lost my groove with work But! I'll get it back again. I find that doing a couple of pages of warms ups really helps. Glad you liked "Froggy"

    HunterKiller_ - That is digital water colour (Painter IX) on a texture background with the line art over it. If you haven't seen it, the original for the creature is a few posts back. I think on the previous page

    tsujni - Thanks! The coloured version, if you are interested, is here.

    Ignominious - Thank you

    Couple more pages:
    first page is just doodle warm up stuff.
    second page is CHOW 115.
    and I've got more faerie designs planned.

    All the best,
    ~Oreg.

    You're making me crave Painter all over again, damnit

    I thought the watercolor was, well, watercolor and now I'm even more impressed that it isn't! Are you going to finish the foreground? A cute critter like that needs land to explore--he looks utterly spellbound.

    DECYPL - thanks man. Means a lot.

    Bojee - I've so got to finish that!

    Maridius - Painter is a fantastic program. I'm using IX right now - haven't upgraded to X yet, but will sooner or later. Probably around the time XI comes out
    I do plan on finishing the picture. Work has been getting in the way, so stuff has slowed down a little bit. I'll get back to it

    Amir the night wolf - Thanks for your kind words

    Two page update. Mostly just doodles. Playing around with a couple of techniques I haven't used in years. More over the weekend as time allows.

    kidult - Thanks - the tones'll come. Used to be a lot better at it years and years ago (we're talking almost... a lot. )

    PuppyKitten -

    First thumb for a "book cover" concept. Planning on doing this for the portfolio, so crit away please.

    A few notes before you open fire:
    I'm keeping the story/composition fairly simple, as I wanted it to read well, and quickly. I chose "traditional" roles for the characters not because I didn't want to spice it up some, but again because I wanted to keep it simple and easily identifiable. I'm thinking about adding in a child in the woman's arms. Also considering having the man looking at the woman instead of the battle over the hill.

    Also as noted, this is the *first* thumb, and fairly small: roughly about six inches length wise and about 3 tall. Will do a larger redo as I get closer to it.

    Not really satisfied with the fore/middle ground right beyond the house there before you get to the trees, so suggestions would be welcome.

    And lastly, *yes* it was directly inspired by Donato's Fortune and Fate - you'll see what I mean.

    Anyway, crit at will.
    (poor will)

    For a first thumb it looks great. You know I have a composition-weakness so take all this with a grain of salt, but...

    The way his head hits the underside of the roof bugs me a little. Also, that ALMOST unbroken vertical line of the wall seems to really separate them from the rest of the piece more than I think you want it to. Breaking it with the arm is a good idea, but maybe that's too subtle...

    The "traditional role" concept is so rarely embraced these days, that I think you've actually made your piece stand out as original just for doing that, so I wouldn't fret a bit on that aspect of it.

    The anatomy looks really nice on the guy (he has a big hand, but it's just a thumbnail so who cares). I think her pose would look more natural if she were holding something large. A baby like you were thinking would make sense. Or some worldly possessions like she's about to flee the town...

    I can't wait to see what you do with that yummy looking bg. I can see some really intriguing atmosphere building up there.

    'Cuz life is full of your regrets, and I should be one...

    DefiledVisions - Thanks for the kind works Keep those pencils close at hand!

    DanielC - Thanks!

    Hai!^^ - Thanks!

    PuppyKitten - Good point about the vertical line of the house. I had wanted that pretty solid to visually separate the "domestic" or "normal" world from the "Call to Adventure" (the war in the background) but I can see how it's a little too solid. I'll break that up some - plus I like the idea of what a more broken line there can mean... Good call - Thanks!

    and here's a couple from last night/this morning:

    First one is just a doodle - sort of a play off the space trucker / Han Solo/Chewbacca thing.

    The second one is a rough redesign for one of the many, many alien races that I have had floating around in my head for the past 20+ years. I'll probably do a full, more balanced shot of them later. I just wanted to get the head structure down. One of the key points is that this species doesn't have "eyes" the way we think of them - no orbs. They have instead a dark patch of nerve bundles on the front of their face that picks up visible light. If you can imagine a sort of rough optically sensitive "mole" on your skin, that's what this would be. Instead of colouring (the optic "patch" is black) each individual would have one shaped differently.

    All the best,
    ~Oreg.

    Hi Shane. I'm loving the recent pencil work. I was just browsing your sketchbook with my partner and she's seriously impressed. I love 'twiggy, and some of the sensitivity in the character linework reminds me of Moebius.

    Poshspice - Hey Aly, thank you for your and your partner's kind words. It means a lot to me I *LOVE* Moebius. Simply. Love. Him. I spent far too much time staring at his work as a kid. The man was just a master of line and simplicity. I need to stop now or I'll end up geeking out about him for pages

    Wasker - Thanks!

    Salacuis - Thank you for your kind words, and my apologies for not getting right back to you. The rule of thumb that I use with my shadows is that your darkest area - the shadow core, will be *right* next to the highlight. Take a look at any of my pieces that are here and you can see what I mean. If you would like, feel free to shoot me a pm and I'll give you specific instruction to the best of my ability.

    Here's a couple of quick concepts for CHOW 116 this week:
    (on the bottom one, the face doodles along the side start at the lower right (first one I did) and end at the upper left (last one). the snagnastie was done first).

    Hi Oregano,

    Both CHOW designs are excellent pencil renderings, hard to pick one, look forward to seeing which one you go with.
