    that last character looks pretty cool kind of a mix between drax and goldfinger with a touch of anthony hopkins, really good stylization.

    cheerio

    Young Paddy and Kian, thanks guys...

    here's an update. I'm not sold on the green/blue rim lighting just yet. it's coming off too strong and drags my eye downward too much. Perhaps it'll be okay once I add in the green light in the port hole...but right now I'm probably gonna nock it down a notch or two. And the boots need to be reworked, even though they're pretty much in shadow.

    Fantastic sketchbook Jason! You have a really great sense of design and color. And your style really grabs attention I hope work and life slow down a bit more soon and that you can get back to producing more of these great pieces! How did that convention a while back go? Anyway, I hope to meet you sometime at the Boston sketch group!

    Zhonked: Things are slowing down a bit at work. I'm back to drawing at least every other night again. Hope to join in the Boston Sketch group soon.

    Here's the Sub-villain finale. (well, really close to final. I've got to clean a few things up)

    Working on my xmas card / evil santa villain challenge.

    Artgasm Challenge: Take Santa, mix with element power (fire, wind, water, earth)

    Here's my concept.
    Sain Nekvos was a brutal Viking God, who would come to the aid of believers while in the midst of battle. According to legend, he would give blessings and gifts to those he deemed worthy. To enemies he brought forth the cruel winter wind, which he ruled over. He rode atop Ruedov, the mythical giant reindere beast, whose footsteps would leave a coal-like black stain upon the white snow. Believers would give thanks to him (and friends as well) on the Darkest day in the land, the Winter Solstice.

    Over the centuries, his legend changed. Most dramatically came after one particular battle, where he failed to come to the aid of true believers. Soon, tribes far and wide assumed his power had weakened. His myth transformed into children's tales of forgotten times. During Pagan years and eventually after the Romans conquered the land, parents began telling their children of a wise old man, named Saint Nicholas, who would give gifts of gold or food to good children on Dec. 25th.

    And that is the true legend of Santa Claus.

    Here's my sketch, I'll starting working on the drawing this weekend.

    love the model drawings man.
    sub-guy could use some atmospheric perspective, to make him pop from the background, and to add some more mood to the picture.

    hey, jason, how's it goin over here?

    nice concept...can't wait to see how it plays out. just a note for the action, you might want to extend the legs of the reindere to have him on the falling side of a jump. cause sein's beard is falling from top to bottom, meaning that he is on the falling side of a jump...i think it might be more consistent if you did it that way. good luck man, i hope to see it some tuesday. hope all's well!

    Plurb: Hmmm. yeah, you're probably got something there. I'll try and fiddle with it a little.

    I started painting. In Photoshop. This is my first time actually painting in PS. It's nice. It's like painting with light washes of acrylic on glass. It flows fast too. I was having problems getting the "paint" to draw out fast enough in Painter. Besides the slight lag to each stroke, it just felt like I had to work the digital media more to get it to make forms.

    your under-rated snair. i still feel the same about your linework. just so much stronger than a lot of your rendered out work. would love to see more of a compromise between the two.

    hey man, merry belated Christmas!

    with the christmas card, i would ask, what's the focal point? to me, the thing my eye gets most attracted to is the reindere's eye and nose, which seems to be the most detailed thing. it's legs look MUUUUUUCH better now, awesome. good job with the color scheme, definitely looks winter. and i LOOOOVE the colors with the evil monkey dude. i love a great, sunny orange. what about him makes him evil? i think you could push the pose more, cause the colors are definitely not going to help in that department. and just holding a skull stick doesn't make him evil, just maybe a bright shaman or something.

    hope this helps. g'luck with it man, and i hope to see you after the new year. happy new year; enjoy!

    Purb36: hey man. Thanks for the crit. I've worked on the monkey a bit today...painting in the face now. Yeah, that first drawing was just sort of so I could see what the animal looked like when drawn. I just wanted a clean base to get started. Instead of going all out on weird evil costume, I decided on un-cute, evil expression/face. I started drawing in the costume, then realized that the cool element to this animal is their hair and by having costumed up, it just covered that coolness.

    Happy New Year to you and everone!
