hey man, that sucks about the robbed thing, but getting the 20" G5 is awesome, yeah liking the new line art, look's way more confident, the bum has definate throwbacks to olaf but i am not saying thats a bad thing, and yeah i agree with you on the life drawing thing, its not easy to just do life drawing all the time, but yeah new stuff looking cool, oh and i have started posting in the DSG's and i have work going into the sketchbook, so check it out.
i just found out my results for my design portfolio submission (end of high school) and yes thats right i have been waiting three months for these results.....
i got "Outstanding Scholarship"!!! thats the top mark possible, 18 people got it im my country across all the visual art areas!!
of course there are only about 4 million people in New Zealand, but still.
the one sucky thing is that a "scholarship" isn't much of a scholarship its just more of a name for a mark, i think i get $500 NZ (about $270 US) when compared to this years uni fees of $5000 its pretty insignificant, but oh well, i'm pretty happy anywayz
Cool model Kronos, but I think you need to work on coloring. Both your texture and your color work tends to be rather lifeless. Not much detail for one, and the actual hues are all the same within a given area. Try and putting in cool or warm shadows and such, to give your stuff more depth, and with texturing, really focus on details.
With that model for example, look up a gazelle or some similar creature and try to mimic the skin just for practice. It's quite a bit more complex than what you have right now. You need to work on that because it will enhance both your texture work and your coloring.
Es fließt durch meine Venen, Es schläft in meinen Tränen
Es läuft mir aus den Ohren, Herz und Nieren sind Motoren
Kronos, wow, I'm really digging these last sketches, nothing to crit at all, they great. I'm really liking that your getting into zbrush, I'm doing the same actually, my plan was to dive into it during spring break, but I didn't get to it. I'm a 3d modeling major at the academy university in San Fransico. I love modeling in 3d, but my heart is drawing. I think the two both really compliment the other well. I would say great start on your sculpt in zbrush I haven't even made it that far. I got a few zbrush tutorial dvds from gnomens workshop. Is that blue pen or pencil? if its pen thats really awesome, I'm sturggling with pen right now, I need to do more stuff with the pen, thats for damn sure. Very awesome sketchbook, keep em coming man.
Nice, i love drawing with Biro's they have a very specific style of line that it hard to replicate with anything else, your coming along leaps and bounds my friend, hope the ZBrush stuff is coming on as well for you as it is me,
well, uni finnished a while ago and i started checking back here on a somewhat regular basis but not really posting anything. well i'm posting now.
i'm a little confused by the new attachment thing, does it mean you can't comment between images? hopefully i'll get it right in one go.
anyway, here is the update, quite big i suppose, but considering the time its been since i last posted it should probably be 20 times bigger.... oh well i'm getting into drawing again fairly frequintly so i should have some more updates soonishy?
some of these are new, some are old, some are wips, some are...well not
mmm, yeah poor old tenacious ten doesn't seem to be that tenacious
well here is a SP i did tonight.... unfortunately the likeness is pretty good
it's a little washed out be cause i actually painted it REALLY dark, i dunno what i was thinking, but yeah only really realized it once i'd finished and quickly adjusted levels to post it on here.... i bet half of you can't even see a thing, opps!
i was quite pleased how this one turned out, it just started out as a cartoony sketch then somehow ended up like this, fun playing with texture overlays.... i was also quite surprised how anatomically ok it is, as i didn't use any reference (the ear makes no sense whatsoever though).
i know there is hardly any hue variation whatsoever, thats one thing i should really study(as in flesh tones and stuff)
HEY recursive...oops! i mean Daniel! your latest works are FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFing incredible, you have improved SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much since i met you, and don't be modest you know its true . i'll give a good comment in your sketchbook soon, but yeah truly awesome stuff
