    Trent Kaniuga daily sketch and book

    I like the idea of doing a daily sketchbook of sorts showing the progress of my next book. As it stands... the book has no publish date, no publisher, no deadlines, and no real set style. On that note, lets just say that it may never be printed either... but "the journey is the destination" as the saying goes. I may miss a few days, and I may decide to go off on something that is NOT the book. How's that for a disclaimer.

    For the most part, the entire point of this excersize is to get immediate feedback DURING the process of painting these pages, as I'm still fairly new to digital painting and appreciate any constructive criticism.

    An inked page before any color. This was done a few days ago.

    This is the second day of painting. I only get a couple hours a day to work on this stuff so sometimes its slow going. I thought Id do the scene in the snow because it would be easier with splotches of white everywhere... but nooooooo. I set myself up for a job.

    5-1-03 portraits

    a few self portraits from the last few days.

    Trent Kaniuga daily sketch and book

    this was done in painter 8. looks a little too "liney" I know.

    Trent Kaniuga daily sketch and book

    This one started out as a self portrait... but... took on a life of its own. I was feeling a little beat up that day.

    Hi Trent, welcome on board! Looks like you know very much what you're doing and I admire your grasp of light and shadow. Be sure that I'll be a regular lurker in your sketchbook.

    We finished the prototype for a project with Capcom yesterday (cross your fingers)... so I took some time today to do some much needed cleaning around the house and get my oil changed. I guess i could have done it myself... but then i dont think i couldve made time for things like this.

    Trent Kaniuga daily sketch and book

    I tend to do rough action shots before i pencil a fight scene in a book. This helps to clarify some visual instances that will make for a dynamic kung fu extravaganza.
    I did this Self Portrait in the rear view mirror during my 1.5 hour (actually 2.5 hour) wait at the Auto shop.


    Trent Kaniuga daily sketch and book

    Did the pencils for this one at the Auto shop... got home and did a photoshop job on it after I saw some of the new stuff in thunderdome.

    Just to clarify... I cant post anything from the capcom prototype here, in fact i cant even really talk about it. But NONE of that material is posted here.
    This is either all from my new book, or just junk that i geek out on.

    Im gonna try to post an update to page 1 tomorrow night after work. hopefully itll be done by then.

    Finished page 1. Or at least, im callin it done for now.

    Trent Kaniuga daily sketch and book

    Heres a close up on that snow lantern. Something about it is still a bit uncomfortable... its not warm and inviting yet subtle and non distracting enough yet. But it helps pull the eye to the next panel.

    I dont shave anymore.

    Drawn from a photograph. I like the lighting.

    Yeah, I was in wizard... in another lifetime.

    I posted the first concept art for this character in another forum, and many people thought i should try a variation. So I cooked this up.

    Also finished the inkwork for page 2.

    nice work. i think the problem with the lantern may be that the lines are too dark.. .if they werent as black it might work better. most of the self portraits are pretty successful... i really like the last one, great mood.. .the 2 above it are nice, but conventional (not necessarily a bad thing). ..and i would really like to see you take the style of the sepiatoned one further. the comic pages are lookin good. .keep em comin

    Metalwinds- Thank you. The more traditional self portraits were done in photoshop while looking at photographs. Mostly I just did these as a light/color study.

    I really want to get comfortable in painter. Im still using version 5, and this is my first piece with the oil tools. I like that you can get so many extra color variations that sorta... just happen in the brushstrokes.
    This is my 3rd piece done in painter. not getting the look i want yet.
