Deli. wow. over a hundred pages and 3 years o' work. and it really pays off, huh? really awesome to see that progress. your humans are a lot better then animals though. the horse in the sky a few pages back is a little undefined. and the bunny's ears are funny. still, wow. wish I could do portraits and light fx like you. congrats on the contract btw. that's amazing@!
SKETCHBOOK - my website - facebook company page
ooh yeah; did you know I'm a certified art-teacher? that's right. everything arty I say has been endorsed by the state of the Netherlands! (they'll be sorry soon)
Congrats on the contract man. I'm aiming at Valve eventually.
The first step - especially for young people with energy and drive and talent, but not money - the first step to controlling your world is to control your culture. To model and demonstrate the kind of world you demand to live in. To write the books. Make the music. Shoot the films. Paint the art.
Congrats Dave! It's always inspiring to see hard work and great progress rewarded. =) Your progress is still stunning. The way you handle light gets more and more eye-raping every time I check in here.
Not to sound like a parrot, but congrats on the Wizards contract. Three cheers for living the dream! Oh, and the green secondary light on the rabbit is quite nice. It really makes the form pop, and it works particularly well with the red skull iris to make the subject appear all the more sinister.
Big congrats on the wizards of the coast gig, thats awesome. Also, the rabbit looks sweet, I love the way you light your characters.
EDIT: I sent you a private message with a question but it says your inbox is full, so I'll put it here.
I'm sure somewhere 100ish pages of your sketchbook you've answered this before, but I was wondering when you paint (in general, but specifically looking at those recent portraits you've done) if you paint straight into color, or do black and white then glaze over with color.
Do you do both? If so, in what situations do you prefer to do each one?
If you don't go straight color, and do black and white first, what layer mode do you use to put the color on?
Thanks man. And awesome work.
