    Who doesn't love fallout?

    Let me just say that its taken me, oh.. about 3 months to work up the courage to post here and even with my pretentious artistic mindset i'll admit that anything i have to show off pales significantly in comparison with some, heck, everything that i see here. Anyhow; here are two pictures i submited for a schoolwork portfolio- both inspired by the greatest game franchise ever created; fallout. Oh and i hope you don't mind me linking them to imageshack i was worried that they would be too big to fit in the forum tables.

    Very much inspired from Gecko's town reactor.

    And my impression of The Glow, note; utter chaos and sneaky vault dweller in the bottom right corner!

    Nice stile. How did you make that ?

    The reactor looks really cool, but the second one is just too blurry.
    Its hard to make shapes out. There are windows, a head , junk..... and something else I cant identify.

    I don't like fallout, but it might be because I live exactly 3 miles from a nuclear power plant. The pics look nice though. Kind of blurry, but that’s what fallout will do to ya.

    I think the first one could be better if it has more cues to scale. Atmospheric perspective, itty bitty figures somewhere, little windows. That kind of thing. Just something recognisable. At the moment, it's hard to tell what you're intending for it (goes for both of them, really). I kinda wish there was more detail, but I do like the gritty style you're using.

    Darrel Bowman, 60-80 per day? If you would paint 18 hours in a day, and you wanted to make 60 pics, you would have 18 minutes to finish each piece. And that's only if you worked non stop with no food, toilet or whatever.. you never leave the chair. Doing 80 would be even crazier. Sure, it's possible to make it if you have a tight deadline and a VERY large pay check to look forward to, but for practice it's just stupid... And most probably you'd end up with only a handful of acceptable sketches, but the majority will be crap. Waste of time if you ask me, better to take it easy and make sure they're all worth something.

    I'd say, paint as fast as you can, for as long as you can and want to, but don't stress it. Speed will come by itself anyways.

    Other then that, I think these look pretty fine, keep it up.

    ""u do the math

    500 x 365 = 182,500

    And 500 a day is way, way too many.

    Darrel, do you do 500 a day? or even 80, or 60? You are asking quite a lot. I'd like to see you finish a whole sketchbook in a day, you'd probably come out with nothing but shite since you only spend a few minutes on each. I'm not sure how rushing is going to make you any better.

    sepia tones

    what if you painted them black and white. greys of course.
    then made them into duotones of green.
    if u had to do alot in a hurry.

    sometimes you get those days were a client would like
    something in a hurry.
    bonus is you did it dead easy.

    just a suggestion.

    yes is possible

    i was going to say 120.

    there are speed guys here, they have section on speed drawing.

    once you do 12 then u do 24s then 36 etc
    u get ur speed up. in a zone sort of speaking.

    but u got to do hundreds of drawings you cant do one illustration in 3 days
    and do this.
    got to be doing 24 frames a day.

    i did a million dollar labatts blue campain in one day.
    u cant do this forever thou.
    burn out.

    but somedays it comes in and u do it.
    quick and dirty jobs.
