    Figured I'd start a new book for the new year. I got a new Wacom for Christmas and have been playing with it all day. It came with this Painter Essentials so I did this pic in that program in about 1hr that I did from ref....

    I got painter essentials with my Wacom as well, i ''played'' with it, heh. Anyway, I just looked through your old sketchbook, I really like your work. You do faces very well, and figures. I especialy like your painting as well. Like your latest post - good choice of colours and the front features make sense to the eye. Do you think you will leave it or go in more and put on more detail?

    Wow I got some replies awesome! Thanks guys!

    Tullie yeah that's my problem I don't spend to long on the pieces so I have nothing really finished..which is what i'm going to try to do and finally get a nice portfolio going. I think I'm getting better at color but I dunno to me my pics turn out to pastel looking.

    I didn't have much time to do this or post about to go see a movie with a friend. It's from a pic a took of my cat..this one didn't turn out so well.

    thanks bobby

    I did this one for the COW fireworks spitter and this what I was going to put for the story or whatever...The frog creature climbs to the top of canopy and then when his sack(is that right?) fills he sprays the fireworks out of his back...yea borning I know. I used ref of a couple a frogs and then made one up and used some colors from one too... so it's from ref but totally made up.

    The cat is the best painting you got, just a little clean up and a bit more rendering and it is a good piece. Just pay a little attention to it's face, it is ot completely true to the ref.
    Looks like a lot of people got wacoms for christmas... =)

    Thanks for the kind words My New Years goal is to take pieces to the finished level..but I think for the cat one I will probably leave it. These are all just quick stuff for fun I need to start coming up with stuff for a portfolio with different pieces.

    Howdy I haven't been drawing for awhile. I did this cowboy after looking at some of the concept art for Gun and also playing it, it's a great game. Took about 45 mins and I used ref on getting the hat shape and it's all done in Painter.

    Wow I look back at the last couple pieces..damn I need to draw more those are horrible, this new piece probably isn't any different. I really need to start drawing more and spending more time one stuff. This one took like 45mins and sketched and then colored in PS. Oh and he is suppose to have a spray can in his hand

    cool stuff, i love the Darth Vader speedy, looks great.I'm not a fan of ref drawings (even if they look great) so i'd like to see some imagiation pieces, thedrawings look really good anyway (i got the painter essentail disc too with my wacom, but i guess i'll stick to PS anyway )

    ciao

    nah I just don't like to scan stuff in I draw with pencil a lot but it's mostly stuff that's the same..stuff from reference or anatomy studies. When I draw with pencil I do more imaginative stuff, but I never like them..the drawings themselves are good(I guess) but I just don't like how creature,etc turn out..maybe not creative enough. I don't know how I don't seem to have more of an imagination I got lots of books and images in my head, it's just when I'm in front of the paper or computer the images seem to go away.

    You should definitely scan some of your paper stuff in, I think it would be interesting to see. Your colors are awesome by the way. I think periodically some parts of where you missed the structure show up in the paintings (like your cat's face) but overall things look pretty good. Maybe if you just practiced more with no ref your brain could get used to conglomerating what reference you remember with what your imagination wants to do. Keep it, looks great!
