    Psssst, this stuff is old! Go to the later pages!
    Right, seeking a compendium of my scribbles and what not here I am. Not sure how much I blend in here amongst such amazing talent but what the hell, should inspire me to get better quicker.

    I'll start by posting some things I've done recently.

    Let me know what you think, whatever comes to mind really. Thanks for taking the time, this has been such a great community.

    Just finished this one:

    "Our hero the RobotKing escapes the Volcano" A blob doodle as well, fun with colors!

    Gave up on this puppy, got bored I guess. Pose is weak too.
    Here is the thread for some processes:

    This one was an experiment with a pretty limited value range, focusing on hue changes for depth.

    Color scheme was fun on this one.

    these are some pretty cool characters/creatures. you could smooth out a bit of your colors, making them blend a bit more with shadows/lightsource, but on the ball, none the less.

    cheers,

    Hey dude! Good to see you've started a sketchbook. Love some of the new pieces....in particular the 'blob'. I think that it's (as yet) the best drawing and colour job i've seen you do. I love his little arms

    Looks like all that work on colour theory is starting to pay off big time.

    @Azeira: Thanks, I don't quite follow what you mean by smoothing out the colors though. Could you give me a specific example? Thanks again!
    @mull77: Thanks for the encouragement man! Your talking about the Meowing Blob right? It was pretty fun, arms were the last touch actually.
    @DieOxin: Thanks man! Bout time I started a sketchbook huh? Hope to learn a lot from the people in here. Your right on the Sony Girl, I had it planned with stronger lights coming from the recessed box she is in, didn't really flesh that out, thanks for bringing it up!

    Updated the robot a little bit with some input from the IRC guys. Missing the old batwings,
    I think they were better for the composition. I liked the old blue part of the volcano better too...

    Did this "overpaint" on a whim, hehe... cheeeeeese.

    http://www.livestream.com/tomscholes
    Did this last night, hour or two. Really fun. Added a heavier shine to some key parts
    and the grass after some prompting by Grooveholmes.

    This is a bit of an experiment on the last one after Lightkirtar said the symmetry was
    hurting it a bit, I think it got too busy and I didn't feel like finishing it.

    No problem. Basically, what i meant was that there is a contrast in your peices here between light and dark colors. a very distinct, rough paintwork that could be smoothed out to make a more natural affect to the image. A good example here would be the fellow in armor. the lighter, reflective portions of the armor could have more more gradual, and once again, natural, affect to show the luster of the armor. though the work of the light on the bust works well with its glow, the other portions tend to fall away from this. This usually occures when the painter takes less time to complete the peice, common among quickies/thumbnails. Not many take the care to pay attention to those little details, but i feel that they would benefit you here in creating that brighter, more believable luster that was used for the bust.

    Another example is the arachnid/crab like creature. The color distinctions on his lower half are quite strong, and smoothing the edges of those patches, perhaps even bringing in a bit more detail along with them, would make a very impressive effect for the life-like appeal of the creature.

    these are just things i noticed. you know what your doing, so dont take any of this personally. simply proposed considarations.

    cheers,

    Woodruff

    @LightKirtar: Thanks for dropping by dood! I can't say I've ever done an anatomy study... I'm such an amateur especially when it comes to drawing. Definetly something I'm going to be studying intently very soon here. Keep kicking me in the ass alright .
    @Azeira: No offense taken of course! Always glad to hear different viewpoints. Thanks for the great thoughts and ideas; I'm definetly going to explore them further. Stick around, I'm glad to have ya!
    @D0M: Thank you! I just want to re-iterate that that one was a collaboration from the New Media Coloring Book, the lines were Uncle-Enzo's.

    A few touch-ups today; going to see what else I can do between homework. I think I burnt my eyes working on a bright background...

    Edit: Tonight's efforts -

    From late last night:

    Fun with some simple colors; a speedy. Trying out some new brushes.

    Messing around with some texture on this puppy, not quite there but a good experiment.

    Still too hard to paint over lines with so much prior shading, I guess not hard just too time consuming and not fun enough. Couldn't take it as far as I wanted or exactly what I wanted. Had some fun making it look a little like "traditional" media though.

    Gunna be busy for a few days here; finals and what not. Ugh... and at such a high inspiration point, at least the last few days have been fulfilling.
