    Hmm it seems switching over to a new host fubared my gallery... sorry about that.

    Hope it's ok to revive such an old thread. Getting back into painting but my designs have gotten so bad... need to get that up to speed...

    Been really busy lately... hmm finally have time after midterms..

    so here are some odds and ends of my sketches since... gosh october last year:







    So... I don't have much really... got a couple of projects in the burner right now. School is killing me what with lab after lab. But I do manage to squeeze in 20min every other day and do a speedy (below). I started up a thread for 20min paintings from ref. They're relaxing and readies me for bed after a long day/night of debugging/studying....

    I'm digging your digital paint skills Omi. Can I ask, with those do you block in everything or do you at times just dive in with the color?

    Hmm for the no opacity paintings I do block them in. For the last one with the shirtless guy I block the face in and randomly paint the the body with a few colors.

    Today's ship:

    haha I like your name cout<mecha. What major were you at UT? I'm still working on the mechs. I don't generally like anything I do... but I'm starting to dislike them less, so that's a good thing. No I never had any drawing or painting professors. I went to a few art classes informally and it sucked horribly. I don't mean to sound arrogant but no one drew as well as I did, and if they did it took them a painfully long time to do it. It feels like almost nobody in art major actually likes to draw or practice in their spare time. It's sad.

    Ok guys, if you want to mimic what I do, don't mimic the time I do it. Pace your self out. I've been painting... more or less like this for two years now so I've had quite a bit of experienced. If you want to paint well, I recommend doing the following:





    I'll post more spaceships this weekend... after I get my ALU working and optimized

    I've been in a creative jam, can't design anything at all... so I resort to photoshoping

    I'm still looking for my perfect mech, and I think I have made a step closer with this rehash of the Gundam ES-X it has a lower center of gravity and a slightly more durable sensor module. I'll rehash it some more tonight.

    Used another similar mecha painting for reference. That painting was posted December of 06 prob at sijun where I found it, dunno who it's by. Any who, here's a concept of the early in the history of mecha when designs were still conservative and engineers used what they knew was a sturdy cockpit design.

    It has a sensor module similar to the ones on the Cobra attached to the under side of a 50 cal machine gune (to be refitted with a 30mm vulcan in later versions) two multi-purpose pylons, capable of carrying 4 rocket launchers, 16 hell-fire missiles, 4 long range anti-air missiles, or any combination of them. There is another cannon fitted in the back, for anti-missiles (not a very good place I know, but where else could you put it?? I guess at the top huh... but that would ruin the silhouette!). Main engines are housed in the upper thighs, free the lower extremities of unnecessary weight for greater mobility. There are pads on the knees in case it trips forward and something in the back in case it topples backward. haven't really thought too much on the feet yet...

    C&C on my mecha design would be great!

    Thanks guys.

    No I don't know AJtron unfortunately, I'm just an EE student drawing whenever I can.

    I just got my new battery. Been painting on it and I think I can squeeze 2-3 hours worth in the next figure drawing session

    Thumbs up

    Awesome and inspiring stuff, Omikun ^_^
    It was nice to finally meet you at last night's life drawing session, too.

    Keep it up...oh, and you used Painter X for some of these figure paintings right? I'm learning Painter, and I was wondering if you'd show me how you did those sometime ^_^

    Never thought an engineer could paint like this j/k It's great someone with that background getting this good at art. I used to be an electrical engineer student too, getting into control systems before I switched to something more art related. I like drawing these more than the boring circuit diagrams and equations hehehe.

    Anyways, it seems you are having fun with these. Would like to see your previous work in the last pages, but somehow is not being displayed. Anyhow, your figure work is getting better. It's awesome how fast you are getting with them. The mech designs are cool too, nice shape variation and rendering. Seems your imaginative figure work would need some improvement, which can mainly be achieved by studying some anatomy and applying it to your figure work to get a better understanding for the imaginative work. Just a suggestion. Keep looking forward for more!

    CecelyV: It was nice meeting you too! I don't use Painter. Only Photoshop

    Thanks Maestro Andres. I'm working on drawing without ref but it's hard. I still need a lot more practice yeah.

    Mattinian: EE has taken so much time away from drawing that it makes me want to draw That's the only example I can give.

    Omi-kun;

    Your postings keep getting better in both figure and mech renderings; especially with this last one!
    Whats just as amazing is that your going for a EE degree and still have time to do all this. Are you taking it at UT? Most people spend their whole semester studying and doing labs till waay late at night.

    Great stuff!

    Sup man, this is Brian from the figurative session. Your environmental paintings are quite impressive. I'm really digging your mech concepts as well, not to mention that you have a strong color sense especially evident in your digital figurative paintings. You should keep add some more pages to this here sketchbook cause it's inspiring Hope to see ya again, in the meantime keep me informed of your art stuffs.

    Sketchbook!! Please help me improve!

    Thanks guys! I haven't been doing much art lately other than what I have been doing at the AVAA stuff and those have been pretty bad lately. But I am done! Graduated out of EE from UT. All those long hours at 2nd floor ENS has been worth it. Check out my senior design project with 3 other awesome guys: Rosie the self balancing robot

    Oh I guess I have a legitimate update, it's not much. I seem to be more interested in making robot stuff than art these days. But then again that is probably because I haven't been surfing the forums of late.

    Wow, I can see your interest in drawing robots goes along with your engineering
    background. That is an impressive self balancing robot you've designed. Nice lighting on the Mech pilot, keep us updated!
