    Jeff West: Thanks man!
    Asoir: Thanks for dropping by. Well the inked ones are fairly old, so hopefully i should be doing better stuff now. Most of the latest stuff i've done isn't exactly polished though...just quick sketches.

    Decided i was going to try to do some enviroments last night, cos i'm crap at them basically. I have trouble on a couple of things, mainly the focus and perspective. Anyway, i saw a thread the other day (i can't remember whos unfortunatley) that some one had done, and they'd mapped out a rough perspective outline in 3d before they started. The final peice looked really nice, so i thought i'd give it a try.

    It's not finished yet, but i'm pretty happy with it so far. I'm probably going to have some zombies or something coming out of the fog, or being partialy obscured by it.

    I'm not sure about the colour though. Too much blue maybe??
    I'd appreciate any help on this one

    Youre in the UK! where abouts? I need to come and hunt you down so i can sorta learn shit n stuff

    Your individual characters are really cool and i like a lot of your colored pictures on the 2nd page, i prefer:

    http://www.pawprinthq.com/gallery/co.../demonking.jpg

    that sorta harsh contrast stuff compared to

    http://www.pawprinthq.com/gallery/colour/art/guard.jpg


    Eitherway, dig your style and things you draw

    Jackwhat: Cheers mate. Based in Newcastle now, though i'm from Manchester originally. Glad you liked the contrast stuff...i'm trying a couple of different (for me) apporaches to colouring at the minute so hopefully i'm going to be getting close to a 'style' i can call my own

    Looking very good man, some great thoughts on using color. I do think perhaps, you might enjoy with pushing that so much further. Having everything near in value works rather well for these - which is odd because value is usually so vital. Some good thoughts in here dude, making me think. This is actually where a lot of my thoughts have been lately, very cool to actually see them

    Anyways, because a picture is worth a thousand words, this is what I mean by pushing it a little. I.e. let your "shallow" value scale yet extremely detailed and well colored style accent a contrasting high value focus perhaps? (Words are horrible!, pictures now)

    Thanks man!

    I do try and play with the values and the saturation of the stuff i'm doing, but i find it hard to get the balance i want.

    I've something to upload tomorrow that i did last night (forgot to upload it today) that i had a fair bit of trouble with.......i'll need you to cast your colour-attuned eyes over it!

    Like the 2 versions you did.....the second one especially. The first is a little over-saturated for my tastes....but is it over-saturated, or is it just me??? Arrgghh!

    Now i need a lie down

    [edit] Had a little play with the last one.....i don't have my tablet with me at the moment so i can't get into the details, but do you think it looks any better?

    Yeah, looks good. My edits were pretty cheap things, no substitute for actually painting them. I think to restate my point on these is, that with your well detailed and great feeling backgrounds etc, you can really really make your subject pop with just a little contrast. You know what I mean? Can't wait to see more mate. Cheers.

    I may still have to up the values on this one.....it looks totally different on my monitor at home...maybe that's the root of the problem! I'll blame my tools!

    Going for a higher contrast look straight away on this one. It's not even half done yet, but i think it's going in the right direction.

    Wow. I love your sketchbook. You've got a great, unique approach to color in your paintings. I agree with Idiot Apathy about contrast, although there's something appealing about what you're already doing. I think the latest is off to a great start though - I'll be looking forward to updates.

    Apathy: Really? I thought he was still a bit washed out so i gave him another makeover....Not sure if i went overboard :/

    Blaise: Glad you could drop by dude. Haha, i'm glad you think i have a unique approach to colouring...it's mainly comes from not knowing what the hell you're doing

    Here's an update of the last robot. I think he's almost there, but i'd be really interested to hear any crits about what i can change. Cheers!

    Hey man, nice to see some talent up in the Northeast, I'm liking your characters and your droids/mechs are nicely designed and proportioned. I recon you could apply some of that design sense on an enviromental level.

    My advice would be to focus on getting a solid hold on perspective. It will give all your design work more depth. The use of 3D to lay it out is a good tool but its far better if you can set it up yourself. I would generally only use 3D if I was attempting an extreme 3 point which can be really tough to eyeball.

    Great work though, keep it up

    Icaro: Cheers man! Yeh the North East's pretty cool for most things but i do feel a little stranded up here sometimes when everyone else is meeting up in london.

    I've always had a bit of trouble with enviroments.....dunno why but i can't seem to visualise before i start, so they always end up looking a bit flat. I know the 3d is a bit of a route to nowhere, but i was just clutching at straws. I've always loved figure drawing, and the enviroment came secondary to that for me. It's defiatley something i need to work on though...even if it's just starting off with small thumbs and working my way up.

    enthombed: Thanks dude! Come back soon

    I've had a lot of trouble lately with saturation and values on the stuff i've been doing, and like any good workman i blamed my tools (ie, my monitor) but it turns out that it was knackered! So i've changed quite a few of the old pics that i did on it and re-uploaded them so hopefully some of the stuff that previously looked washed out now looks ok.

    Some new stuff:

    Awesome, these last few paintings are shithot, the Blue bot duder and the wome n with that red stuff on her forehead are my favorites, that monster thing rocks hard too!

    I wouldnt say no to seeing some brighter neon blues behind the women though but thats just me, works as is! I really like that bot, his pose is great... and like thats such a dull comment but i cant think of anything else to say.

    That last environment seems to be working but its a bit straight on (meaning er, you dont get much chance to see the other goins on like you did in those 3d ones.. i make so little sense), if anything... are you pleased with it? looks nice either way.

    Those last quickies, did you do them all digitally or are they inked scans from your sketchbook, theyre ... "nice", fucks sake, ill go learn or something so i can say something more constructive.

    Keep at it~

    Jackwhat: Thanks for dropping back in mate, It's appreciated!

    The last few were all done digitally...my pencil stuff isn't as clean looking.

    Glad you liked the other two. The blue bot i'm mostly happy with, but the enviroment is flat and crap...and the other enviroment is pretty awful as well, but i'm trying to get into the habit of using different textured brushes like Apathy does.

    I want to start doing more enviromnets but i'm getting happier with the way some of the colour work i've done with figure is turning out and i want to keep at it while i'm motivated.

    Gorgeous! Bloody gorgeous. I'm facinated at how you made these work so well and so vibrantly with just a few colors, and even with a pure white enviroment. Very cool, and giving me a few ideas for sure. Other than that the texture on them is really great.

    Speedy enviroment has some nice things going for it, good colors and textures for sure. Composition is a bit static perhaps - maybe try off centering things a bit? Seems to be divided into almost perfect thirds.

    Cheers dude!

    Some very nice work here indeed. I'm really inspired by your alien/humanoid-beast character designs, and costumes too. Lovely lines! Great work!

    Tight stuff, and you really know what you're doing with the colours. I'd like to see some more action, what happens when you let it all hang loose.

    Very nice sketchbook. I've gotta watch this one for sure. I love your clean char designs. Also glad to see someone else who uses 3D blocking for perspective work.

    Been a while since i updated but there's been a World Cup on you know .
    Now i have no excuse (damn it)

    Lord Dubu: Thanks dude. I'm using the 3d as a bit of crutch at the minute, but i'm hoping to get past needing it for perspective. I read somewhere that it's usually pretty difficult for someone who's used to doing figure drawings to make the switch to landscapes and that's defo the case with me.

    blacky: Thanks for dropping back in!

    walnut: Yeh man, that's what i'm going to be aiming for from now on...figures overlapping and interacting with each other.

    Recursive_End,
    Conroy Matalia,
    Zweit,
    enthombed,
    Dave MacLeod:Cheers!

    Idiot Apathy: Thanks again mate. Se what you mean about the enviro. There was supposed to be some figures in the middle but i decided to use it as a brush experiment instead. Glad you liked the zombie hamster and goggle eyes...the color use was mainly down to your advice so give yourself a pat on the back from me!

    Hi mull77,
    Cruising through your SB. Really good stuff. Your design sense is obviously well developed. There is only thing I can say that would strengthen your work (because your work IS strong). I think it would benefit your already fine work to study up on human anatomy. I'm wanting to see the planes of the faces on your humans more clearly defined. They have definate types and character but your drawings will be much more powerful when you can build the form from the inside out. The creatures and mechs have solid structures built into there fun designs and sit in solid space, so this dosn't seem a big step for you. Just that in comparison the figures are needing the same kind of attention IMO. Your design skills and imagination are impressive. I will be looking forward to future posts of your creations. I really really love the critters.

    Been lax again with this sketchbook, but i've got a bit of free time at the mo, so hopefully i'll be able to update pretty regularly.

    AztcFireFlower : Thanks dude....you're right about my figures and faces, and you're not the first to say it either, so i should have sorted it by now!

    Apathy: Cheers tom...mechs arent really streching myself though. Gonna have to apply some of the stuff i've learn recently to these.

    Tonights:
