a study i did of some samurai armour, i stayed very loose while painting this, im pleased with the outcome. thanks for viewing ..ybe YBE!!! bye? bye
Thanks Dile, Woot pg3. i really needed to practice skin tones, so i did.
No idea, dont ask......
great stuff in here, i love your sketches and characters, i love your teen td for this round i think it could use some more vibrancy and a little more of a value range in the character though.
Thanks Lohan for that great site. and yea uxun thats exactly what it needs , will do that tonight, thanks. bye
Great thread, man! I like the enviro renderings you do - great colors. Good improvement on the figure drawing too. Keep it up!
Good stuff so far. I like the Manchester sketches best. Im surprised how well you captured that! Your figure works needs more working on. I find you exaggerate parts too much, like the female breasts for example (theyre not that round and balloony in real life are they?). Focus on form first before you jump into adding the features.
thanks Bendragon for your honest crit, i will work on it as soon as possible. I took your advice too Luxun and changed my TeenC piece.
I think the TeenC piece is one of your best so far. I think the small green strokes on the bottom right need to be blended more- they arent looking that pretty right now. background buildings and torso are very nice. i would have the light lines on the floor receeding back into the horizon get fainter the more they go back. and possibly add some white to the sky area above his head and bleed some of it onto the top of his figure to really suggest the strength of the light.
Those latest studies are getting really good.
The samurai armor looks great, nice and loose like you said. The figure looks good too, just the legs look a little odd.
Great work for the Teen tdome, nice atmostphere you have going there.
The last doodle looks like it was fun
something im working on for COW. Scary But Harmless. He just loves getting you presents.
update. No where near completion yet, will take a lot more work but lemme know opinions so far and some crits if ya have any.
I wish he had more form. the way the presents are covering his body and the way his arm is hugging his body, does not give you much chance to show the shape and form of the monster. also, does his right arm have to be straight like that? even if it was bent at an angle to create some negative space in between his arm and his body it would be better, I think, or even better if it was holding something or doing something suggestive. i would probabaly wack out his hair more to make it crazy. the textures and colors on his skin are well-done i think.
thanks for your input lohan, ive decided to abandon that piece and started something else.
You have some really nice work here. I patticalarly enjoyed the environmental sketches you did and the digi coloring of them. Your characters are looking good and progressing well. Keep going to those life drawing classes and getting the practice in!! And keep the pics coming!
The latest piece is coming along well. Just a few things to alter imo. The torso looks huge! And Im not sure where the necks gone to. Those eyes needs more light though. Your initial sketch gets that across well but it looks lost in the paint work.
The COW piece is good. I prefer the expression on the first one though. The eyes on the updated version isnt quite as menacing when you add those pupils.
thought id have a break and post where im upto with it so far.
this latest chow looks good man, i think theres some funkyness going on with the torso shoulder relation though and the head could be bigger,
Damn boy, you got a lot going for you. The quick building sketches were my fav.
Not quitting my dayjob just yet...
I think it was lookin good til the latest blue layer added... just to be honest...
Keep it ooooooop!
ok i havent been too pleased with my last couple of pieces. but i worked on this today and enjoyed doing it.

. i tried to do these as attachments but couldnt get it working?ok some new work. the biro work is done in a very small notebook i found under the desk in work, so whenever its not busy i do a little doodle..its only about A6 size...so some are crappy drawings. OMG fecking Mosquito on photobuckeT!!
The drawings are looking good. I'd like to see more control with the hatchings though, sometimes they look random and messy. Maybe more contrasts on the pencil work? The non-referanced stuff is good, you got a few interesting poses going on, but theres still a few anatomy issues.
i think you need to work some more on getting the form to read before going to rendering, and the rendering could also benefit from being polished a little
