    B-Man: you know it! fembots are everywhere trying to steal my mojoooo
    Luckers: drugs are great! err no wait...drugs are bad! don't do drugs
    Aveh: hahahahaha that one really made my day man ;D


    So I disappeared there for a little bit... I was doing a working vacation in Oslo, Norway hanging out with my good friends slash and mischeviouslittleelf...and by hanging out, I really mean that I was living with them, eating their food..stealing their girlfriends etcetera...when I got a job offer to work for Gameloft fulltime at their Redsteam Studio, in Shanghai, China. I didn't really think much about it, and said yes. Shortly after I realised how much freelance work I had lined up that I had to finish before I started working there. That's when I fell off the map. I did two months worth or work in less than half the time, and still managed to get drunk here and there...

    So after a lot of paperwork, there was more paperwork to be done, and as it turns out, you can only get Chinese visa by going to the country where you have your passport. China is very picky about these things...no one told me. So after going to the Norwegian Chinese Embassy, and finding this out the long way...I hopped on a flight to NYC, USA. something like 7 hours travel time, and I was lucky enough to get randomly screened in my stop-over in Iceland. I got free water and some cookies, but I was pretty hungry and wasn't allowed out of the tiny holding area until my flight arrived.
    Flew to NYC, and found out how convenient public transport is in NYC. Had a liiiiiiittle bit of freetime, and met up with Nov and his gf for some dinner+drawing. He helped me find pretty cheap hotel not too far from where I needed to be. I spent an entire day soaking wet from torrential rains sitting in the Chinese Embassy in NYC, then as they were closing, got my passport back with a fancy zvisa to china. Next day, I was on a bus headed up towards Boston...and spent the night at my beautiful bearded warrior friend's place.[aka Dan ] and saw dave and chelsea and their adorable puppies.

    The next morning I was on a train and then some more busses, and finally ended up at my parents house. Got to see my family, and grab a few items for my trip..and the next morning I was on a flight to Shanghai. 1 layover, about 20 hours total travel time. It was somewhere around when I got to the hotel, I realised I'm in China...and I toooooootally didn't know any Mandarin when I got here. Slowly picking up some basic things, but still a loooooong way to go before I can even really hold a conversation.
    So since coming here, I've been working fulltime, and have been doing freelance as well, so my motivation to continue to sit at the computer and do personal work was very low when I had the free time.

    I finished my old sketchbook, but I don't know what happened to it, I think I left it at my parents house in the USA, so no scans of that one, but I started a new one, and have recently started using it again hahah

    I have been doing some portrait painting at my friend Oyo's place. I'll try to get some pics for my next update of the painting I've done so far. Here is one of a nice Dutch girl I met at a club and she was nice enough to sit for us to paint.

    Really nice man.
    Color stuff is, as usual, fantastic. Really.. just amazingly inspiring.
    Cant help but think you could push the pencils though. Lines for instance. Maybe values. Faces look a bit crooked sometimes. haha god i hope i dont sound too douchy. I really admire your work.
    /t

    edit: quite some stuff you've been through though, grats to the job in shanghai!

    Life is full of adventures. Glad to hear that you are working now and got all of that I don't know what to call it, situated. No luck yet with me, gotta do some DandD samples for WOTC. The Senior Art Director liked a couple of my works, so I gotta pull the awesome outta my ass and do something worth his time. Nice Oils paintings I am assuming. I hope that you are having fun doing them. I am withdraws right now, because I havent worked with them in a long time. A year too long... Keep it up though Platts. I hope to see you come back with the regular updates. All in the spirit of fun... *fart*

    observation sketches and studies are looking pretty sweet bro, and that's a killer view btw

    EDIT: Hey man, you asked me in my thread whether or not I do personal work, and I do, but usually its just my assignments from school...that's something I'm trying to branch out into, to become more creative and develop my own ideas. It's like I've got these awesome images in my head and I can never put them down on the page, so I usually just resort to studying to fill the void...think it's about time I actually get over it and try to do something sweet, since you and a couple other people have been asking about it

    And thanks for the graph, it really encouraging to know that others feel the same way, not just me!

    Thanks again man great work again and I'll see ya round

    You lost your sketchbook? Hope you'll find it soon (or your parents). I was hoping to see some more pencil pages like in post # 1243, the last ones are different (less rendering).

    If you want to learn faster the chinese language, try to get some Jackie Chan DVDs with english subtitle or try to get a language DVD called "Rosetta Stone". It's very usefull to learn any language fast.

    you have some sweet pencils in here! I am constantly finding that people who reach a decent level of skill with a pencil don't bother to upload their sketches, and only do their digi-paints. You are an exception to that! Great stuff, I particularly like the dino-skeleton ones.

    And when you ask them: "How much should we give?"
    They only answer: "More, more, more!"

    Give the people what they want. More, more, more!
