    I'm liking your lunch paints James. I sketch at lunch myself most of the time, must be nice to work where there is a Wacom handy lol. Hope all is well for you in R-Town.

    Wheezy: Thanks for swingin by my little corner of CA here. Unfortunately it seems like lately something always gets in my way during lunch and I don't get to paint So I haven't done as much lately as I probably should've. In fact it'd been a few weeks I think since I looked at my sketchbook and there were some things I had totally forgotten I even did!

    Monotony: I've been on a bit of a value kick lately...trying to improve my sort of internal mental understanding of form and also how to render it properly. Hence the lack of color stuff. I recently watched parts 2 and 3 of Scott Robertsons Rendering Matte Surfaces DVD series and I have to say it was amazingly helpful. Its funny how you can know something and yet still not apply it properly in your work, then just having it explained in a different way, or seeing someone implement it in their own work, then the key turns and the door opens. Glad you like Ubbosathla I'm pretty happy with it as well, and definitely not the last multi-eyeballed, tentaclely thing I draw.

    That last one's very creepy, a neat idea and I love the rendering. The forehead seems flat--like it's a stone tablet that's been carved, but still has the form of a tablet. I'm not sure if this is actually a criticism, given that I've never seen this creature before and maybe it just has a flat forehead. The forms carved into it are nicely 3D.

    I very much like your interpretation of the torso here: http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1208239822 . The head/neck is maybe too wide though.

    I'm also a fan of the recent spaceships--very original designs that are nonetheless quite spaceshippy.

    http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1207572172 is just awesome. I'd love to see it finished.

    Yeah, Max1975 the overall face did come out flatter than I would've liked honestly. I think it has a lot to do with not properly defining the volume of the head first, before moving on to all the little carved forms inside it...definitely an issue of mine I'm trying to get better with. I'm glad you, otherwise, liked it and the others you mentioned though! The spaceships are kind of a new thing for me. Although I've always been a fan of John Berkey and Richard Powers...that kind of sci-fi imagery that leaves parts of it up to the viewers imagination to figure out. Anyway, here's today's lunchtime doodle. Probably 'bout 45 min's on this one. The body is totally bunk, and basically just something I threw in as a place holder when I realized my lunch was running out and my AD approacheth. I may come back to this one to get a better figure in there.

    Today's morning and lunch paint...prolly 'bout an hour and a half total...still gonna add something in the top right corner...I was thinking of doing a shattered moon or something Frazzeta-esque. While I was painting this I noticed a huge flock of crows or grackles in a woods across from our building. A bunch of them took flight and turned into this undulating, living rope of birds in the sky...pretty neato. Thank you bird gods.
