    serp: lol thanx pal.

    dile: thnx for the tips. i intend to get into doing enviroments. they where always my biggest inspiration wen i was young. i recall getting lost in epic and expansively detailed enviroment paintings.

    some mentler studies

    took it a lil further and gave some life.

    cool figure man. The lighting looks kinda arbitrary though. YOu gotta spot the cast shadows first since those are the most dramatic.
    helmet looks rad. I think it could use even more contrast.

    damn sick textures. It would look better w/o the cut and paste job. That kinda ruined the work you put into rendering th creature. It'll stand much better on it's own.

    This is really good! So is this and your avatar. It's been a while since I was in here and you're better than i remembered. You're making progress For your latest paint I agree the obvious cut&paste is kinda ugly, but you'll probably sort that out as you work on it some more. Might be difficult to make it looks consisten tho since you got such insane detail on the creature. Especially the leg, which is kinda the focal point right now and is gonna remain unless you wanna spend days working the rest of the image to the same level of detail. It's hard to give good crits right now tho since it's pretty far from finished still, so keep working!

    hokie dokie. i finished it, but to late. i thought we were allowed sundays, but i forgot that sundays are the beginning of the week, not the end. took it as far as i felt like, its kinda rushed tho, i just couldnt get the bg to work out, hence the high detail level onthe animal. just got lazy and tried to tie it all together with some dust. think i kinda murdered it in the end. but hey i learned sooo much cool stuff doing this one, and im game for the next.

    Oki: lol thnx, mysteries? copy main layer, set to bevel and emboss, play around with settings, and use eraser to chisel away.

    master: thnx i was simply playing around trying to set up more of a seen, but i really realised my weakness at enviorments in this painting. im gonna have to hit those up hard and back off of the anatomy studies. or mabey go full out on both. time is the enemy.

    boogie: thnx, good to see u back. was getting lil boring without ur around.

    sorry it took me a week or 2 to get here, man!

    progress is being made, keep pushing forward. right now, I would suggest that you spend more time with pencil and paper working with reference. build your anatomical knowledge and expand your visual memory.

    wow really beautiful texture work OBX. Your right there are alot of fun secrets hidden in photoshop. i think working on your backgrounds is a great idea! backgrounds can be fun once you learn a few tricks and it looks like you already have!

    serp: thanx pal. i hope i fixed the red x.

    bkweough: thnks will do. i really do need to work from reference more. i think it will make my imagination drawing better. ive never really set down to memorize and perfect my anatomy. I find that i sit down all inspired to do this sweet character concept, then i start penciling the construction line, and i realise how shity they are and then get frustrated and the drawing doenst work out. im pretty certain with a more perfected anatomical knowledge i wont have to worry about anatomy and will jsut be able to pump out all the creative juices in my head. I guessing thats wat it must be like for pro's, to be so effortless at drawing that all they have to worry about is wat thier mind can imagine. see u at the workshop pal.

    penciler:yes i neeed to learn how to do enviroments badly. but one thing at a time, and right now its anatomy and character control. but i will be attending some of the enviroment lessons at the workshop just to get a better understanding of how they think.


    and my drawings.

    some very cool stuff happening in your quick sketches, but I think with your more finished stuff you need to take that extra hour or two to fix up little things... they look rushed or like you got bored in areas. hope that doesn't sound harsh, but I know the feeling. I do it too much myself. anyway, you've got a good sense of the dramatic and compositional skills, looking forward to what else you come up with.

    Hey man, good little biddies you got here. Good seeing your determination for finished works... I gotta do that myself. I'm liking the quicky with the character on the camel, the dramaticism {? is that a word? It is now.} of your work is showing through. The black and white warmups from before are really really nice as well, reminiscent of stencils. Wouldn't mind seeing more of those. But on another note, where's the traditional stuff?? Let's see some more pencil/pen action in this piece. Because in Montreal, i'm expecting collaborations, meaning some crazy sketch pieces are going to arise! But cheers man, 12 days left!!!

    nice way to apply veins to your guy. I think that's a shortcut that'll hurt you in the end though. You should paint in the veins on the filter layer yourself and then apply the filter (directional light right?). Pecs look too high too.

    You have good sense of composition on the next piece. The ground line and details in the landscape isn't clear but you painted over them and I'm guess it wasn't your main goal. You got some stuff tangent with the edge of the canvas though. I was told that's bad and my theory for it is you lose the "looking through a window" effect if part of the subject is "touching" the window frame. It also leads your eyes outside of the canvas too now that I look at it some more.

    Camel rider is hot, the loose landscape in that one looks really cool. I don't have a real crit for you. I see something in almost all of your digipaints that is kinda bugging me but I can't figure what it is.. Maybe it's something about your technique and not you theoretical knowledge. Do you use the eraser much? Cause some of your edges feel like they been erased to get where they are and it doesn't always look good. I don't know tho. I'll think about it and get back to you.

    The camel rider is cool ^_^. He's leaning a bit though, looks as if he might fall off.

    I like the mood in this one a lot. The scene looks peaceful, and yet there seems to be the slightest hint of imminent danger... or something like that.
    The textures on the skin of the strange creature are very nicely done, can't even begin to wonder how you did that.

    wheph wat an awsome time i had. It was killer. Not soo much seeing all the proffessional artists. but spending time with attendees. Soooo many cool ppl. From chilling out in our pre-workshop thunderdome to drawing in a bar with all my new pals. Long live the 301.

    And salutations to my online ssg.

    Infact i did soo much hanging out that i never really drew that much. too much for a noob like me to take in. It was really neat seeing how human the proffesionals are. Lots is lost in translation via the internet. I mean marko isnt some super fast drawing god. he spends like 3 hours on each drawing and like 20hrs on this one painting. I definatly learned that to get a nice painting im gonna have to take my time.

    such awsome stuff.

    thanx for all the replies and crits. srry but im too lazy to respond to each of u individually this time. i read each one tho.

    and the few goodies i made in montreal;

    masked warroir thunderdome



    and random drawing from throughout







    model drawing. My very first model drawing. lol its pretty fun. but i swear they got this one chick off the street.



    more random, no refs.



    i know head is too small

    Well, that makes me wish even more I could've been there. Oh well, maybe next time...
    I like the creature with the forked tongue (forgot the animal's name in English), nice skin texturing.

    I see your shading has improved a lot since the workshop. Lighting is more simplified. Jolly good stuff. On the one where you say the head is too small, I think the jaw it's just the small jaw that make the head looks small.
