Hey gnoll, looking good dude. I dont know if its based off this but the greyscale illustrations done for warhammer 40k are always really inspiring : ) This one is looking good so far, only things i notice is that the placement of the foot on the left guy looks a bit odd, as if its not grounded, might be lack of shadow. Also try making the canvas bigger so the flag isnt cropped off and gives the piece some breathing room. Like where this is going, keep going at it! Ciao. :3
yo! that's quite a piece you are working on.. looking good so far, just a small thing? I think if you sort of worked out your lighting a tad more stronger it would help with the rednering process. look forward to the progress!
@OldNoobie: color color color.Yep, i need to start usign some color.I'll have more time as soon as the school's over.Thanks Lee
@kischi: thanks man
@Sirio_Brozzi: thanks man, i'll keep those crits in mind.Btw, its WH40k inspired, i used to stare at those greyscale illos for ages as a kid.
@VanDog: thanks dude!
@bumskee: you're right lady...actually i think this is a tad too complicated for me right now.I'll have to start doing some lightning studies as soon as i have time.Thanks for stopping by!
ok guys.These have been fairly good days, but there ain't much decent art to show.I have just been doodlin' away these last few days.That greyscale pic above is damn hard and i'm having some problems with lighting...i probably just ain't ready for something like that yet
About my comment on concept recycling...it's a tricky one i know. I think the key is to try to figure out stuff on your own, creating your own "technoligy" or worlds... it's hard but you're doing great!
keep at it!
Some great designs here, man. Your pencil technique is getting really strong, as well. You have some very clean, strong outlines.
Two crits, one specific and one general. First, in this most recent pic, the robot's lower legs are way too short and its feet are way too small. Second, you need to do more with color! If you get good at color it'll had a whole new dimension of greatness to your work.
Draw on, my friend. Draw on.
Awesome work as always, you do some fun creature concepts. I especially love the pincer dude at the top. Haha and the robot amuses me, looks like he's dancing (it actually reminds me of this dumb Aquaman dance that Cartoon Network used to play). I'm with Moai, I'd love to see more color!
