sketchbook updated October 6th
Nice update man. It's getting tighter and tighter in here. Something i'd pick though is value structure. As in the head of the daddy has darks a bit too spread out. Maybe getting it a bit closer at some spots would give it more composition strength. But that's valuable only cause i refer to the armor's lighting.
Other than that, its all good man, keep it coming ! :]

Nice updates. Stuff is always good, but, that lunch-break doodle is showing off your knowledge in a strong way. Great imagination, Kan!
now that's a really nice concept of a Big Daddy! I already finished the game, but it would have been great to have it in mind while playing it.. keep posting, would you kindly

HAHA cleveland is fucking awesome...
looking for freelance work & commissions!
whooow, nice portratis khan, specially the one you did on your lunch break, that's a nice aproch , not using any refs for your work. I usually do that , and yes is tricky, but if you can manage is the best way to go. That way you create the characters, you breath life into them , and make them more credible. Thus the characters are starting to get a personal touch, and gives an insight into it's creators mind.
take care man
Well. Its said before. You rock, even when you think you dont! And I love coming here. You mix adventure peices with moodsetting enviros. you are an all-around artist with skillz that killz. Cheers bud!
Firstly, that image above with the dragon looks VERY heavy metal, the 1980's animated film :3
That is AWESOME
Realistic Cleveland, although decent and painterly, is really creepy to me for some reason... Can't quite place it yet.
Glad to see you back and pumpin' 'em out
Hope to see moar
great improvement since my last visit i like this painted feel, i try to work in corel painter, but i can't achieve this feel. Anyway, the first thing i would do if i were you i would add more saturation in your paintings. good luck!
I've seen your avatar everywhere and I've been thinking of looking through your sketchbook many times but never have until now. I'm glad I did check it cause man your stuff is sick. I must subscribe so I don't miss out on anything!
OmertA: Thanks a lot!
DanielC: Cheers Dan, I am working on those issues lately, hopefuly it will show soon.
Azctec: Ahhh, coming from you is like a nice little present. Thanks you soooooo much!
dmoreno: Hehe, I am close to finish.. Such a great game. Hopefully, I will be aloud to show some of the concepts I did for Bioshock 2 soon.
tja88: Hehe, cheers!
Giorge: Hey man, how's life? Thanks for kind words. I think, one needs to do loads of studies before working from head and, even then, you need to have something that you can grab out any time if it "gets tight".
PHATandy: Cheers, glad you like it!!
B-Man: Man, you put me up big time. Gotta send you some roses and a mix tape full of Whitney Houston songs
purb36: Haha, many thanks!
Huey Yeng: Thanks a lot for you visit, Huey!
Aslev: Really glad you like it. That piece is so personal, I never expected it to be accepted that well. Just another proof that we need to follow our guts and not copy others, right?
NickyBeats: Thanks very much, glad you like it, Nicky.
Twan: Cheers! Yeah, it was so tempting to get in and render the shit out of it, but I decided to leave it as it is.
Vatsel: Nah, you're wasting your time with my crappy book. But you are most welcome, my friend. Tea and biscuits?
Texahol: As the sun goes down, I sing a song carried by the wind to you.. how gay is that?
Rushlord: Glad you like the old chap
Mat Kaminski: Thanks very much. Yeah, you wouldn't believe how hard it was to paint him without losing his character. And yeah, Cleveland IS kind of creepy, even in the show, haha..
llex_paul: Cheers Paul! I struggle with saturation a lot lately and just can't make up my mind about it. It's so difficult! Thanks a lot.
Emil_: Much appreciated, Emil! I am trying hard to "draw" with paint but def. need to do more penciling.
Loathsome: That is such a nice compliment! Really!! Thanks a lot, you're are most welcome to visit my cozy little thread
I just sat down and did some lines and simple b&w rendering.. Just for fun, nothing in mind, really. Lately I've been told by friends that my stuff is missing construction so I started doing more of studies of whatever is infront of me. Will post it soon, I think.
Hope you like it,
I love how loose your work feels, seems like there's so much energy in every stroke
Amazing stuff in here. Love the Big Daddy and all the others. I'd give you a crit but I'm not good enough to offer any crits.
