    just to prove i have not been completely unproductive this weekend...tadaaa, my first silk screen outside of the print class. I t prints pretty good too, though i have to do a completely clean print on a tshirt. The ink really sneaks up on you.

    my cow for this week. shudda done the eow first, but i don't think i'll have time. Anyhow, for this one I used the same technique as with the dragon piece. my scanner was down, so I had t sight transfer it to the 'puter. I'll scan in the rest of the critters as soon as i can.

    funky, i like how you've used focus to draw atention to the spiders face, and the white teeth really stand out

    no crits really, perhaps maybe, possibly a little more variation in colour could have been nice, but i like it!

    That spider thingie is pretty cool, what you could do to give it a more "chitinous" feel is use a smaller harder brush to detail things like the joints, the limbs closer to us and the face. The white is somewhat distracting and out of place so IMO you should mute it down.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    o.O No one commented on this picture yet!? It's been there for a while too...

    There's probably something wrong with my computer or something! =/ So far I've viewed it on two different computers. >_<' One seems darker then the other.

    It's not finished yet. =/

    hihi, oo lots of updates. Latest picture: with the building the left section should probably be perfectly straight and horizontal - no tilt to it. Looks like the building is slipping down the hill, hehe . Also the perspective looks a little off on this section of building.

    The stadium at the bottom off the page looks a little off. Maybe the bottom end should be made a little higher, so it all fits in the picture, I think the perspective would work better that way. But don't quote me on that.

    The trees could use more variation in greens and dark greens to make them look more bushy and natural.

    Great concept.

    Again with the excuses

    sillyling..ah-ha! so that's what needed to be done. will do it on the next one..that one was a lark, due to last-minute-idea-itis. No ref other than the motel down the street

    tullie:thanks the perspective on the piece IS really screwy. no ruler with me that day i did it. worse..didn't notice jsut how BAD it was until is got to the "overkill" stage.(AKA where i add shadows)

    newpiece:

    my best hands so far, and my worst plate yep, she's lopsided too.

    WOW, this is definitely one of your best yet (technically) i'm really impressed, i would work on it some more (i'm sure you were going to anyway). As always some more shadows would be nice, not darker, just a few places they should come up, like on her necklace, under her hands..... ah what the hell i'll do a quick paint over.....

    there really wasn't much i did, you've got it pretty close i think, i wasn't too sure where the real light source is coming from, there are a few highlights in random spots, try be consistent..... the hair in particular, i really like the face btw, its very nicely done


    can't wait to see this completely finished!

    P.S. can you tell what i've done when i do these? tell me if i should make it more clear by circling it out or something....

    Good stuff in here Lloth. The last one is especially good, although it needs work on the lighting.

    Also, the valhalla pic doesn't look right to me. I can see what you're trying to do with the stairs, but the perspective on the buildings just isn't playing along atm. The arena in front also doesn't look very convincing. I think you need to rework the perspective in that a bit to clear up those problems.

    Gahhhhh! the Gimp ate my file!

    so, I can't do a thing with then newest picture..dam that bug in the Gimp.. the psd file got eaten, so the detailing i wanted to do can't be done I'm stuck with a 72 dpi file, yuck.

    kronos: yes, i've see what you're talking about..Kinda like the tenticle picture earlier, it's still a weakness.

    as for the valhalla pic..it's too late..i should take the thing down. From the feedback in this sketchbook, I know I still need work on perspective. I also still need work on light and shadowing in painting, not to mention anatomy(darn those comic book physics..) I will be practicing...

    This is but a small setback.

    That ChOW pic has a nice velvet texture going on the dress, not too crazy about the skin tones though, too desaturated for my taste. As for the hands they are decent, I don't see any major problem with them, just clarify the position of the fingers that's all.
    Keep it up.

    i was supposed to be working on anatomy today. I started out that way anyhow...the girl here shows that(she's from some tv commercial). My brain sorta wandered off on a tangent.

    Also..discovered that my hosting provided charged me extra$ this months due to bandwidth usage, so...that means i gotta remove some old remote images. The DSG is gonna be a nightmare to do that to

    my maybe contribution to this week's EOW..i kinda went a little crazy on this, and i actually did 3 different versions before i settled with this one. does it look alright or am i missing something?

    kronos: I agree with you about the cliff and the waves. I liked the moon idea, so I redid one.

    cool concept and i like the limited palette..... however, when it comes to architecture, it always looks better with very clear crisp lines. most of the lines here are just to freeform.....also the waves don't really look very good......at all, they bring the piece down a lot, and the moon in the bg looks like a giant cookie. the lights and stuff coming from the building is nice but a little flat and pale, try increasing the intensity of them somehow. and one other thing, the scribbly texture for the top of the cliff faces on the left doesn't work, its the only texture like it and sticks out

    i like the blue shadows rather then black, they help with the mood, keep going it looks good

    HAHA! enormous improvement! yeah i agree, it would be nice to see the sky quite dark, and get the sense the moon it the light source......

    plus, i repeat my comment about the artificial lights, more saturated or something

    nice stuff, really a lot better

    I really don't like light coming out of the house. I agree on making the making the light more saturated. Since light does not act in that way with it's getting out of the house. =/ I really find it's detracting.

    Pretty much that all that need to say has been said.

    The last sketch is pretty nice, as for the enviros, not too crazy about them. The main problem I see is that they seem to lack grid planning or at least some sort of previous plan(not sure though). They look as if made at the spur of the moment, my advice, instead of tackling things from your head right now you should get some landscape ref and do that until you can nail it. Might not sound interesting but you can learn a whole lot that way.
    Keep it up.

    Nice, don't really understands what's going on behind the guy. And his left leg could use a bit of foreshortening
    But its overall really nice, try getting a bit more values.
