    robogabo - Daily Robo sketches & Mo

    Hello everybody,
    My name is Gabriel
    I'm a sketchbooks forum junkie

    My artistic statement is:
    There are so many
    . .soooo many amazing artist out
    there and in this world of so much
    visual media information
    sometimes
    audience wants to receive a message
    and go on with their life's
    some artist prefer to do
    1 illustration that will create
    a profound impact and be remembered forever,
    so maybe spending a lot of time on
    it is the way to go,
    i want to communicate many subjects
    there are so many things to show
    so i prefer a more impressionistic
    quick glance of something to convey
    the message and go on to the next part
    in this rushed life.

    so ill try make posts that have on they
    not much than a day or a couple of hours
    and hoping they entertain you or interest you
    for a moment

    Step1
    make the concept
    try do a top view and side view
    of the vehicle visualizing a contrast
    or armony in shapes and a interesting variety
    i choosed side view in perspective so silhouette
    is important here

    robogabo - Daily Robo sketches & Mo

    Step2
    Create the perspectived linework drawing
    and choose the lighting direction to better
    show form i liked the idea of cast
    shadows on overlapping objects
    so decided this and to show roundness of back motor

    robogabo - Daily Robo sketches & Mo

    Step 2.5
    i select the linework and contract the selection
    and erase to make linework thinner and do a
    value blob behind and then start rendering it

    Step3
    Render in B&W using a hard brush
    then on opacity blend the edges of values
    (i need to get better at that)
    do a layer on top and constrain objects to certain
    values or also select them and lower the contrast or modify
    brightness, pilot value range between 80 to 100 stripes
    maybe 20 to 35 etc etc then color balance it
    trying to make cool shadows warm lights or viceversa
    and add noise . . done

    maybe i should had use the airbrush . . .

    alright heres another
    using the same method
    going for a more 3/4 view
    this time, had to redesign it
    on the run . . i guess i should
    use some feather or soften
    some of those edges
    specially on far part of
    cast shadow on the floor

    quak quak

    ok so now lets try the same
    approach but with a character
    im using the book about costume design
    on the page of french army i think

    Step1
    do the overall proportion and division
    weight and rythim, it was too much
    curvy so i transformed it or skewed it
    and i tend to do thin figures so made it
    wider

    Step2
    do the linework having in mind
    the perspective

    Step3
    do the silhouette . . does it works?
    do i see a human figure from far away?
    yes, well you got a big part solved by now
    plot the lighting direction and plan
    the cast shadow on floor too... make linework
    thiner using the method i mentioned on
    past posts

    robogabo - Daily Robo sketches & Mo

    Step4
    if you listening to music this is the
    time to do that air drum or guitar solo
    before going on . . rest and keep up

    Step5
    Render and then maybe tweak
    genral values of things remember
    a black suit might not have that
    0 value highlight like metal but
    a more 80 to 90 value range
    finish apply PS filters

    robogabo - Daily Robo sketches & Mo

    you see that lance cast shadow going to the
    corner down right ???
    thats aaawful pld: dont do that

    Italy is champion of the world!!
    . . . . .

    ok

    . . . .

    Step1
    first plan the overall concept
    of the robot, this time im being
    dirty i dont care ill fix it later
    i just want to get started, make
    as many doodles until you hit the one
    that will keep you for hours in front
    of the computer

    robogabo - Daily Robo sketches & Mo

    Step2
    Same steps as above, nothing changed
    im really scared now by color so
    ill keep on until i feel comfortable
    to throw another ball to juggle
    this time used an overlay layer
    on top of everything to make some graphics
    on the concept

    oh yeah theres something different . .
    i made this guy walking !!!! i usually do them
    just standing there or flying so walking
    was a good challenge

    ok this little thing took me
    amounts of time . . . .
    first i made 2 perspective lineworks
    both where bad planned so the overlaps
    covered parts of the design making it
    look awful . . so after that had to struggle
    with a curvy design wich is waaay more difficult
    to nail, a little value change and makes it
    turn the surface so is hard . . .

    oh well heres another one i have to
    improve and practice more, this is
    not so aceptable

    first of all i wanted to thanks
    everybody that wrote in guestbook
    thanks guys
    also
    members at exclusive sketchbooks
    all you guys are amazing i check your sketchbooks
    a lot and now the exclusive stuff too
    also
    thanks for the inspiration at the life painting thread
    to Joseph Kresoja, mermuse, abcart, main loop, jrr
    and so many more that i dig you guys are great
    inspiration !!!!

    and yes . . i almost cried when i saw the
    conceptartbook ballistic one, it was cool
    to see some steaktron, james kei, android and sparth
    in there cant wait to get my hands in that one

    hahahaha sorry for the people that cant stand
    this type of message

    Step1
    make the side view concept of the mecha
    the arm is kind of a shield and can attach
    a cannon to it, for this one left arm has no weapon
    so you can see the hook where it attaches
    the left sketch is the doodle of what i wanted
    the pose design to be

    robogabo - Daily Robo sketches & Mo

    Step2
    again same methodology now diference
    i made waaay less layers since this one
    was mo complex i had to shorten time
    helps to gain confidence :-P
    this cast shadow was also little tricky to plot
    not precise at all

    some human form to help give a sense of scale

    robogabo - Daily Robo sketches & Mo

    ill try do some doodle heads tomorrow

    Ok so heres some magazzine sketches
    i like to spend a lot of my time here, is
    a good and fun challenge to polish the
    steps of approach to this ones
    since i do lots of scribbles i do those
    in blue pencil and "ink with" a hb graphite

    my technique is poor but ill try advance
    slowly and follow the form or planes
    with the direction of the stroke havent
    got confident to do the crosshatch technique
    so just parallel lines for now

    ok heres some thumbnails
    i usually do the anatomy under them
    starting by a weight line or line of action
    make head divisions and see the big
    shapes turn in perspective making
    effect on the cloths, they are few lines
    for the porpuose of showing how important
    is the first lines to be right if as artist you can express
    more with few and direct i think is good
    is my personal opinion . . .

    some poses also following the same approach
    you can see the blue lines and that
    i went through other ways on the pencil one
    surround the pose in a simple silhouette
    a strong one the add details or curves if necesary

    search for relationships within the subject
    use artistic license to move things for a
    more flowy statement

    and finally be able to post this
    , i spended some time on this dude
    since its 4 things separately

    tank 1 and 2 gave me some time
    consumption i didnt want to do generic
    copy paste so each one is at different
    parking angle and aiming too

    the creature and last tank and environment

    my mistake was the illo got burned
    detail is gone in the monster

    the texture on the polaroid is infantile
    you can see i blowed it up that was bad
    in my side i should had the ref
    and made texture by myself

    but
    on a good note if you squint your eyes
    or just see it as it is it somehow looks
    like an overexposure photo having the sky
    light and everything dark . . yes thats it
    yes thats what i wanted to depict in the first
    place LOL . . . .
    when i saw doughbots TD at block forum
    got really impressed, one of the bests entries

    i hope you guys liked this one, a direct
    silhouette with an uncommon delivery
    by rotating it, hope you remember it

    robogabo - Daily Robo sketches & Mo

    and for the exclusive part
    heres a nonreference
    i did today

    ok been reading this book
    so trying to do some portraits
    . . . or heads and really simplify
    the form and amount of values
    but try work the edges too blend them

    depict my massshadow first
    and stick to it then work my halftones
    and then some lights even if its
    couple of strokes try make gradients too

    premie du coup is the ultimate thing
    for a goal to me, theres some members here
    that can do it and i respect that so much commitment
    and risk in every brushstroke . . .

    ok for the last head studies
    i use Photoshop, brushes are defaults
    wacom and res is sometimes 170 or 72

    i hope you guys are not bored of seeing only
    studies and stuff i should put some
    more concepts or stuff out of my mind

    ok made this on lunch break,
    the pencils only then
    came home and next step is:

    Step 1
    do the flats, is important to have
    a strong silhouette i hope in this
    first part already catches your attention
    thats why concept artists work so many silhouettes
    is so important

    robogabo - Daily Robo sketches & Mo

    Step 2
    ok i accept it . . proportions look bad
    and stuff but is quick doodles and for fun
    and small format, gotta work really zoom out
    if i wanna finish this for todays update

    having preserve transparency on the silhouete
    layer i do the main lightsource direction
    rendering, having my linework on top

    then
    render on top of linework too and finish

    robogabo - Daily Robo sketches & Mo
    now some more air drums !!!

    same approach same theme
    the mistake here is leaving
    some linework in places it shouldnt be
    maybe making linework behave
    in tickness or opacity or value
    in direction with the lightsource
    would be a better idea

    oh well

    it was cool to see all CA folks
    over there at Comicon,
    and i had chance to make question
    at the panel to Moebius
    that was so awesome

    long way to go, i gotta do color
    and environments, and not just pretty
    pictures
    BUT IDEAS

    ill keep on practicing
    is inspiring to see the new generation
    of artists being so amazing, i gotta
    keep my own pace , constant and never give up
    and have FUN

    ok now im in some
    midpoint , trying to do
    perspective, people
    and a value study , is a lot
    of balls to juggle
    but is a good challenge trying to tweak
    some stuff and do rythim lines
    that connect people or guide the eye

    again , even if i try not to press
    the pencil too hard to not make
    everything lineworky, i try to describe
    shapes, mass etc. with value not linework

    more combos
    trying to find rythim lines
    organize elemnts by value too
    technique is not very good since
    most of the values are not constant
    and distract or dont communicate very well

    see as design more than a human, a chair etc
    focus on negative and positive spaces

    out of the tube color experiments
    on the usual ones like cadmiums and
    burnts, cobalts etc etc etc
    wich ones vibrate more?
    a saturated dark one againts a halftone
    not saturated or the classic low sat light
    high sat med and medium sat dark color
    tweak and experiment

    same as last one, this time
    i had my color wheel at the side
    of my laptop, so since PS sucks
    at color blending i tried to choose
    the transition color also how the local
    color will shift to dark or light
    depending on
    1)lightsource color intensity and temperature
    2)same but for environment

    i think im going too dark on the dark side
    too dark that sometimes the side just looks
    like other material or local color . . . gotta
    keep that in mind

    mmm this is different approach
    on the fly, didnt do any top view
    1) perspective lines
    2)silhouette of the mech
    3)local colors
    4)render
    5) add detail
    again im trying to do directly on color
    so it was quite a challenge but fun
    also used one layer so it would be more
    painterly approach

    i should had included some more graphic
    lines on the bottom fin specially passing
    through the cast shadow to give a better sence
    of the elemnts . . . oh well

    hope you guys not getting bored with all
    this exercises

    same approach as yesterday, on the fly
    quick sketch . . it was boring composition
    so i decided do a side top lighting
    to break the symetry a little, i lost some
    decal details while doing the final touches
    seeing from far and thinking mmm i should
    extend the cast shadow here and the like

    cast shadow on ground really helps for light direction
    and to see what overlaps what in light blocking
    gotta pay mo attention to that

    oh yeah today they said who went
    next round in thunderdome altough
    i disagree since i think my rival pieces
    where not evidently better than mine,
    but i guess is hard to judge artwork,
    i dont share same point of view
    with the judges particulary for my competition
    of course since i lost
    and didnt pass to next round
    . .
    i should work harder now
    and present my ideas
    in a clearer manner

    thanks to everybody for their support
    and messages , about the pixelcharacters
    i usually use the pencil tool, no antialias
    and do the silhouette, thats important, focu motion
    on contrasted elemnts or elemnts that are easy to follow
    like circles or simple objects, once the silhouette
    is solid i click on preserve transparency and work
    with pencil still the main shapes, then use a brush
    with soft edge(only inside silhouette) and do some
    coloring

    ok heres the process ive been doing
    for the last posts, is different since
    i try do it fast and follow instincts on what ive learned
    i only see the mistakes so is hard to enjoy
    is another exercise, must keep on
    you can see how the piece gains momentum
    and where i start showing all my lack of artistic
    skill and go downhill specially cant seem to
    tie up at the end and end up doing unnecesary things

    a small tribute to those wonderful japanese shooters

    i do this sketches and just get me
    all nervous cause is hard to control
    sketch and proportions
    directly on the wacom, thats why
    Dan milligan is such a master, i included
    the sketch so you guys can see how it
    changed, so imagine doing a resemblance
    one directly digital . . . really stresfull i think
    lack of knowledge and technique i think
