Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
Well, I guess it's time to finally post. I've lurked on this board since it's inception, and used to post on sijun back in the day. Here's a couple old ones...
I've gone a while not doing anything, but I'm trying to get my butt in gear. I just want to be able to do this professionally someday. I have finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up, and I'm only 28. Anyway, here's some more recent things, past couple months...
These next three are actually some x-men redesigns I had started on until I saw Marko's recect go at the same subject and got a bit discouraged. heh.
the crew of the USS Florida make an alarming discovery...
and a couple trolls...
Anyway, thanks for taking a look. I'll try to be diligent in keeping this updated.

Cool stuff dude. One thing i noticed is that you're mostly using the same tints and shades of the same color. Use complementary and triadic and so on...
The first troll painting is very good, with good anatomy for the ladies and nice colours and shading. You seem to be skilled with lighting, though I do agree with Chandan; you can achieve more depth by using complementary colours when you paint.
Keep it up!
Thanks a lot for the comments, both of you. That's really interesting. I've always thought that my anatomy and lighting suffered, but it's nice to hear that I've gained some ground there.
Also good to hear about an area I can improve on that I just had no clue about until now. I never really thought about color theory actively in my work, and I guess it shows. Nice to have some stuff to work on now. Thanks.
Anyway, here's a couple pages from my "real" sketchbook that I've done over the past couple days.
I like those pencils, they are very nice. Especially the pencil sketch post from yesterday (6/15).
Ok, I'm excited about this one. It's my first attempt at a self portrait, and miracle of miracles, it somewhat looks like me. hehe
Done at my bill-paying-job on one of our 4in x 5in notepads, standing in the bathroom, under the lovely flourescent lights.
Crits welcome on this and all....
Not a bad page! The only image I have crits on is the center pic of DD where he is getting ready to start his jump. He seems a bit feminine; maybe a few more hard angles or cut muscles would help him look more masculine. The only sequence that gives me any trouble is that same middle set of frames. It starts out small on the left and gets huge by the right side. If you are keeping that flow, I think it would read better if the frame on the left is set a bit higher, the middle is centered, and the right is low...that ought to indicate the flow a touch better to the reader.
Very nice though, I always love seeing people doing full pages!
Keep it up! Remember cool light source, warm shadow and vice versa.
It's weird...i'm telling you and I need to implement it as well. hahah oh well, we're all here to learn anyways.
Looking very good!
Love the dramatic lighting on this one:
Keep it up !!
This is cool, nice works
Hey everybody. Here's a quick one I did using a magazine scan for reference. I tried to get it down quick. (20 minutes), and my main focus was getting colors right, a color study really. No eye dropper tool, just my eyes. heh
A couple more for this evening.
1. a page of poses from head, 15-20 sec each
2. don't even know why i'm posting it, heh
It's pretty frustrating when you don't see any progress in your stuff, and just can't seem to get a handle on what you're missing.
Anyway, thanks for looking.
