    New drawing posted 3/20/06

    Hey, there peeps. I think I have been pretty quiet with the posting artwork but, I have been working on some drawings that my friend is going to take and add his graphic design skills so that we can try and make a pitch to snowboard companies. I was going to wait to show all three but, I have no idea when the last one will be done so i wanted to share what i have so far. your comments and crits are always welcome and very encouraged. Thanks for stopping by!

    Done on 8 x 11 paper with my trusty Bic Velocity pen.

    Awesome images, Rob! Such a strict, and tasteful, and lavish in the same time style. You really have your soul on the tip of the pen when your drawing. I feel so much love in all these details. The stylized hair are so beautiful, and the expression of her face, and these wonderful detail of the fantasy head cover, very fine.
    But my special love to these little wheels, they are the loveliest thing. So delicate and so realistically drawn. I want to touch them. Jewel-like work, very refined. And in the same time these little wheels and manner in which you drew them, and cold metal shine, all this makes me think about the end of the 18th- the beginning of the 19th centuries. When the first cars appeared and a lot of other new things. It was a lot of inventions made, everyone was fascinated with a technical progress and machinery. So I think the illustration made in this style for the books about this period of time would be awesome.

    YO! Nice nice nice!
    Big improvement with these - draftmanship, overall polish - good job Rob.
    I'm all with sveta - I absolutely love the gears inside the treads - you handled that complexity really nicely.

    Not so much a crit, but maybe more of what I would have done -On the girl, since so much is going on with her face and head dress, I may have just super-simplified the hair. Almost create just a big mass shape, and then perhaps pickout a highlight or two. Just a suggestion - either way - great job. I wanna see more like this!

    Rob, these are looking very nice, much improvement in depicting the overall form as well as the details, which are, as usual, quite lovely. i tend to agree w/Loomer about the hair, it draws my eyes from the face a bit too powerfully. the robot's main highlight is a bit out of character for the rest of the drawing, as Mike mentioned, and its overall form is a bit "bas relief" but that works OK with the graphic silhouetted profile. your very distinctive style definitely seems to be maturing here.

    You know, my eyes were first drawn to the wheels also. Just very unique ink drawings, I don't know of anyone else that does ink drawings quite like this! Keep it up, man!

    hey, guys thanks for nice words... I think im going to visit these again in the future add my own color and layout for my portfolio purposes but, I have other things that need my attention now.

    Mike- hey man, thanks for the nice words... yeah that highlight was an after thought. I added that in photoshop thought it would give a nice glare but, it seems like its not working. Im going to change it to the original style. The girl took about 11 hours.. I went through that one kind of quick actually. and the robot was about 16 hours.. It was exhausting working on that character. but, Im trying to build a style a niche for myself. I bitch all the time about how long I take on drawings but, I really do love my style.

    Sve- thank you.. you are always so poetic in your generous words... I think the gears are my favorite part too... I am really considering doing a series like this.. sort of steampunk works... But, Im going to do them larger... actually, I promised myself that after Im done with this series of three that I am going to work much larger then before.. EEEK!! If you think I was crazy with all these little details now.. just wait!

    loomer- yeah, i def. see what your saying.. actually Im not totally pleased with the headress... I wanted to do something more simple and ended up overworking it like I always do. most people liked the outcome though so I left it as is and my friend really liked it as well... When I revisit it im going to simplify the headress so that the hair connects more... thanks for the nice words man..

    Masque- thanks man... Glad to hear that Im improving... I was sweating it out when posting these... I actually almost abandoned the robot piece half way cuz I wasnt sure about the size of the head.. Im glad I didnt cuz I really like the outcome.. Thanks for the encouragement!

    Bowlin- I hope no one else does drawings like that.. cuz, Im hoping that will be my niche.. Too many damb good artist out there I need something in my favor to help me compete! Thanks for stopping by.

    Hi man. Your rendering is always tight and beautiful, not much to crit there hehe. However i would love to see you push the design a bit further. The shortness of the arm makes it seem a little useless. Why not make it twice as long or even more - it might make more sence and give the bot a much more dynamic feel and add character. A few highlights would maybe make it pop a bit more. Other than that - really nice work.

    Hey Vigo,

    Love that profile of the woman, --evil headdress going on there. I like that despite the tight rendering, you managed to still put some movement in there. The robot in comparison may look somewhat rigid although i like the little trinkets and gears all over him. Sheesh, can't even see the lines of the pen in the shading, very meticulous. Keep it up, man.

    It's beautiful, Rob. I love it. if you want to know there are some things which probably not perfect, but I don't want any changes in this picture. Motion, cloth folds, dramatic values, I love it all. The style is very bold, it talks in a very precise, open, confident manner. The things that might be not perfect are the length of legs, especially the stretched leg, and the hands they are parallel. But for me, it's nothing, I love it just the way it is. I wish to see the figure surrounding by something though.
    Well, anyway, it is a beauty.

    Beautiful work of art man,
    Really nice rendering you did there.The feel is tight yet it flows and is in dynamic rythm.I would like it better if you could post a larger pic of the third one.
    Much love.

    These are looking really nice Vigostar. I really like that last one. Great movement in that one. I'm looking forward to seeing them as snowboard designs.

    Have faith, these things should never be easy.

    Hey Rob - We already discussed these a bit, but just wanted to reiterate how badass it is that you are really stepping up your game. If I had to crit one thing on the last drawing, is that I would have modified even more from the reference. Perhaps give some textile design to her clothing that mirrors the mech structure on her. Really cool though..keep this up!

    Wow vigo, first time I see a BIC rendering so tight.
    I particularly like the head dress design of the lady, her cheekbone seems a little too flat though. Just my two cents.
