Awesome work dude - I really enjoyed looking at the enviros, Im a real fan of exploring lots of ideas for moods and scenes, and you vary them really nicely, lots of variation - but u can always tell its the same.
Great work now post moar.

Just flipped through your SB and I'm oh so happy I did - awsome character sketches! You really make them expressive and filled with motion, something I always found hard to achieve. Watch your anatomy though, some of them seem to have very short thighs - remember that the crotch needs some space as well beneath that belt, as well as the thighs. But I do forgive you - the sketches has such amazing personality they are a joy to behold!
DragonSnail : Heheh. Yeah I got watch my anatomy...i've been getting myself into the practice of flipping my sketches over now..i'm amazed at how weird a sketch can look sometimes.
PHATandy: Thanks man. Same here. I'm always attracted to landscapes that are almost just mood...and realistic but abstract. I kind of like it when the viewer can imagine places in the enviroment...where they can pick out little abstract shapes and, in their own mind, figure out what a place really looks like. It's something I'm working towards.
silvestri99: Thanks bud. Don't worry, i'll keeping posting the process shots. I like them too.
koppa: thanks for stopping by...hope you come again.
Here's Anubis. First sketch. And now I'm done for the night...off to go watch Heroes!
TheGnoll Actually, I'm kind of struggling with the environments, thanks for the kind words though. I dunno. I think with the environments, I alwasy feel that they're not quite realistic, or maybe organic enough, so with that I'm trying harder.
Merlkir Yeah...I love Stargate. I'm being careful though not just to emulate that style. Like for Anubis, I definitely don't want it to look like a guy with a neat helmet. I really want to get cool looking Animorphs.
mdale I'm not sure if this Anubis sketch will get painted. It was just a preliminary one. Don't worry, though, there will be a final painted version soon. I think that this sketch is a nice start, but maybe too cute, or cartoony. I want him to be real as the others.
Jorge Gecov Aw cool. I'll check out your stuff. Welcome aboard to the MoA project. It's very cool.
Bhrazz Thanks man. designboot Oh. yeah.. hmmm. my browser won't do the smileys sometimes...and I tried to do just a reg. smile one...looks like it changed to bashfull. haha.
Okays guys and gals. I"m going to San Diego Comic Con this year and I'm trying to put together some promotional pieces. I want to print out a sketchbook handout...if you've ever been to the show you see a lot of the artists selling them. Mine will be free, but same basic idea and will include all of my Egypt stuff. Here's the cover.
