    yarr, painter is the one at the moment, really fun to use now i've started to get past the teething problems.

    its a wierd thing, but painter has taken me a while to get used to! and i'm sure i haven't scratched the surface yet

    the dgs are great, really good sense of atmosphere in the beetle and the robot, can't wait to see the analog work you've been doing

The only real concept in here is that "silly one you did for easter" , its really great.. the other stuff is kinda , cliché and a little boring . A lot of flat areas ( not as in value flat but huge areas that is empty ) which you could fill with details and make the concepts more interesting

Keep it up!

    That swinging robot looks so evil yet so cute, hurr hurr Giraffe beetle is such a great concept too, love the exoskeleton lighting.

    Ah, so you're using Painter? What version? I have 7 but I'm definitely in the teething stage. That and no colour theory present in my brain.

    ooh lot of replies! thx for taking the time!

    @io - any painter from 7 up will do, im using 10 atm but i only use the bog standard wet acrylic brush, but customised.

    here's another bit of painter noodling - a reinterpretation somewhat of a british 'bobby'

    I like the expression you gave the guy. The silouete seems a bit flat though

    ta for the comments guys.

    as for the stuff not being concepty enough or being flat design wise, yeah I'm aware of it. Currently really concentrating on getting used to using painter and rendering with it, so the design is taking a bit of a back seat.

    Maybe I'll give myself more than an hour for one of these and push the design a bit more...

    cheers!

    *WAY* less dynamic than it could (should) haven been, but seeing as it's a victorian batman then i suppose you could argue that the reservedness kind of fits.

    either way it was fun to do. I rushed the background to get done in time, i will re-do it later with better bats.

    Haha, victorian batman....

    The bats look fine to me, I actually kind of like the way you did them.

    I do sort of understand what they are talking about with the "flatness" A lot of the recent stuff looks like it was posed in fron of one of those photography studios backdrops, you know what I mean? Lots of diffused colors. I think if you try to give your bg's more depth it will help a lot. Remeber the distance haze. Values get lighter, and colors less saturated the farther back an object is.

    those bgs are like that pretty much because I want to keep to the time limit as much as I can, so I develope some swiftness using painter.

    I'm sure there'll be a backgroundy topic on a dsg soon, then I'll get rid of the wishy washy background altogether.

    cheers for the comments, more coming as and when i get time.

    some more - still no appearance of the fabled non-crappy-background. I'm going to concentrate on that a bit next and see if I can work out whatever mental block exists there in my brain.
