    bojee, van, thanks.

    well, its not something you really see on one building so much but here is one that i have online right now.

    its funny cause the building is a pachinko parlor in this neo-classical french style. so from the street you only see this clasic facade and then you go up and you see the amount of ducts they put on there and you go wtf?

    that photo was taken around where that bus is at in this pic (on the right)

    this is one of those vertical shafts in my trip underground. on the way down we actually walked past a subway line i often take (this is from halfway up i'd say).

    i really dont want to turn this in to a photography thread though. if you want to see some more pics go here. theyre a bit old now though, need to update that stuff.

    will post some more sketches soon. comments and crits appreciated!

    was just trying out Motion2 to animate environments. it wont let me save files, so its real short. but its really nice to add some atmospheric effects.

    might buy it.

    Hello again, nice start in the figure studys, the underground looks interesting and the pictures too, must say, that undergound picture makes an incredible reference pic for matte paintings, the pachinko/neo classical french/ with a lot of ducts building is quite bizzarre, it really makes you wonder how come they need that many ducts, or how come they use a neo-classic french building for a pachinko parlor.

    Tokyo looks like an unique and interesting concrete forest ( i guess im going to see that soon if all goes well)

    Anyways, take care, and show us more of that figure drawings of yours

    Tensai- Nah man, I didn't expect it to become a photo thread. Sometimes it's cool to see when someone does a whole lot of different things, to see some of it together to get a bigger picture of where they're coming from. I'm glad I did ask you cause those are some kickass photos, Tokyo underground is a completely different world. How far does that stuff go on for??

    Shamagim - i am definitely going to use those pics for some matte painting when i finish that design. hope it will be worth it.

    Bojee - i forgot how far that stuff went down for. on the day i went down there the guy who was in charge of all infrastructural projects in tokyo (first secretary of the ministery of infrastructure) came down with us and he gave me a bunch of technical schemes that i got lying around here somewhere. cant find m now though. funny things was, i was totally freaking out about how beautiful everything was and these engineers where kind of proud and answered all these questions and shit. they really took their time and let me in all these prohibited places.

    BAKI - thanks man. i like it as well. as soon as i have time ill design some more stuff like that. about the 3D stuff - im not sure what you mean but to be sure - everything is 2D. if some of it actually looks three dimensional then im improving...

    aight - update:
    wow - i think i overdid the jpg compression a bit on these, well at least it will load quicker.

    lips - a bit too high contrast, should have rendered some more mid value. im still way inconsistent with these.

    Beautiful stuff here, man. Love the portraits you've done, they all look really good; your studies also look great as well. Must say my favorites would have to be the futuristic designs you've done; the vehicles you've done just look crazy haha, love the way you color them. Again great stuff.. keep it up!

    Not bad .

    The green photo would propably make a cool painting - very spacy.
    Good drawings - cool stuff .

    You could maybe put several of your figures into fantasy environments - like .. ehh . sitting on top of a skyscraper having breakfast .. although that could also be real .

    Just IMO

    forgive me for this one but i just thought it came out so funny.
    Tensai Tokyo Sketch Thread - Sept 28 Exhibition + Commissioned Work Tests!

    because i do so much with line i thought i should change to (almost) no line and use value only
    Tensai Tokyo Sketch Thread - Sept 28 Exhibition + Commissioned Work Tests!

    same ref but then trying to get value with colour. not as succesful i would say
    Tensai Tokyo Sketch Thread - Sept 28 Exhibition + Commissioned Work Tests!

    Onir - thanks man, im gonna put more designs sketches in here. its just that sometimes after a day doing design stuff i want to do something totally different, and do some peeps.. its also what im most unexperienced in, so i need the practice.

    Sawa - thanks, but i dont feel its there yet. i need to working on my inking skills.

    Poohgee - a lot of the photos im doing are for reference. so yeah, a lot will be used in illustrations. consciously or un consciously..

    real update soon.

    Tensai, this sb is coming together very well indeed. I'm not going to crit because I think you know where you're heading and how to get there. Great sketches and some excellent colour treatment.

    The locations must be a profound inspiration, what a place! Your photos have certainly inspired me...

    More power to you!

    No Doubt. The green and orange woman is cool. How your drawings transition to paintings is really interesting.
