Nice start on the painting...Make a blue balloon...or vagina red
lol @ blue and stark
here's the semi-final [i've been painting in my basement and it's COLD!] I'm done with it enough I suppose...too cold too cold....nowhere else to paint.
my scanner killed all the colors....I suppose, you get what you pay for.
Hey tex. You got some really nice digis going on, espically the finished ones. The anatomy studies are also great and I really like how the traditional/digital piece is coming out.Keep up the awsome work.
Hey tex, that blue one is looking real cool mate. I like the textured background, but over the progression of the piece the girl blends less and less with the very dirty, textured look of the blue bg..Id reccomend dirtying up the girl as well to balance it out. :I Ciao.
I'l see what I can do sirio I guess I thought I was going to let the figure pop off the page with that separation, but the result is too much separation
so my house has horrible lighting, and I have an oooold digicam.
some oil paintings on canvasboard from yesterday. I dont' know why I was so afraid of oils....they're awesome!
I guess you're the guy in all of your artwork with red noses....Cool
Those paintings are pretty good...simple, but pretty good. Keep at it and you'll be as good as me one day
Now that is awesome. I love the composition of that and the colors. How big is the canvas or is that a SB page? Maybe you could add something at the very bottom to show where she's escaping or something? Give her some kind of relative height or something.
yeah stark, I agree...I also changed the cropping back to my original idea...went back to the sketch and kind of brought more of the original idea back to life.
I think I'm all done with this one [who knows, I thought I was done a long time ago]
I need to start thinking about interesting angles for composition...I've noticed that most of what I do is just straight on. I had this realization yesterday when on a chairlift [skiing] and one of the giant grooming machines was going up the mountain directly beneath me. such a cool angle... we'll see. I'm going to try to get less straight on view stuff in the future I think.

Hey tex, cool update dude, nice that you incorporated more blue from the scene into the balloon character, helps her fit in much better. Nice lighting on the yellow butterfly sketch as well mate. Stuff is looking better and better mate, cheers. : D
dude. you got some nice stuff in here.. when did this happen!? should have told me about it.. love the IRC challenge..
i love the life drawings, simple.. kinda cute..haha.. i would watch the cross hatching tho, you seem better off without it. just hatching seems to work a lot better for u. keep going bro! looking sweet!
butteerfly thingy is a nice start
work on it

so I got a new computer....went from a 12.1 inch powerbook g4 to a 20inch widescreen imac X_x
holy shit the screen is HUGE!!! also in order to preserve the ratio, I am using the equivalent of a 4.36x8 inch wacom....so now I need to start saving for a new tablet :| maybe....I think I'm already starting to get used to it a bit.
just some doodles trying to get used to the new compy

Lucky bastard. You are going to have so much fun on that Mac. Is it standalone Mac or tower too?
Some pieces here are really good but some look unfinished... My favourites are the scary ones- especially that page of faces with lots of teeth, that one really kicks ass. Also good pencil work, I can see you practice a lot. And that picture you made when you were 9- man, that's great, I wish I didn't lose what I've done as a kid 'cos it gets very interesting when you're older! Child's imagination is pure and unspoiled.

stark, yeah..lucky? no. broke? yes. it's one of those giant monitor-computer iMacs dual core all that jazz...
grim, thanks! I'm glad you like the 'scary' stuff ^_^
sirio...no not at all....12.1 inches of hell.
some stuff from my life drawing class...I need a new scanner :< none of the poses were longer than 20 minutes *raanngnghegn* the profs at my school think 5 and 10 minute poses are the BEST THING EVER >___<
I have more stuff I need to scan and stuff I need to take pictures of...

Nice update..... I like the life studies, look good...for 5-10 minutes they look pretty damn good to me...
Ink wash? Anyways, the last one is nice...could use a bigger scan next time so that I can see what details you have in there
thanks stark...I'll try to remember to scan it when I'm at school. They have non-sucky scanners. I dunno which is worse, my scanner or the digi cam I used to take these pictures. >_<
here's two charcoal/chalk drawings...like 22 x 30 or something.
a small 4x6 oil
and a work doodle 8.5x11 cheap ass copy paper + 2b pencil with my work logo on it. :L haha oh well, at least it was slow enough to where I could draw, but not so slow I got caught.
and you chide me for sloppy inkwashes
I do love that you are putting more effort in to you own ideas.. the handling of colour is really looking good..
in the pencils.you need to watch the contour. and scratch mark making
nice to see so much work
lets see some more
it's good to have internet at home again for sketchbooks like this. awesome stuff man. ur gaining lvls liek mad!
character...I hope to continue leveling, gotta get to a higher level before I can wear this armour I have in my inventory...
a doodle from today...I have some pencils to scan as well..but can't seem to get good scan/photo.

thanks juli ~
here's an update for you.
two paintings that have dried enough to put on the scanner, a bunch of sketchbook stuff [including some class notes from art history] and two IRC thunderdomes... shrine of the collossus, and a squidmonkey.
Nice pics. I like your pencils and especially this painting: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1172119960
MAD UPDATE, mate! Lovely paintings and this is so freakin cool. Along with the sketch above it. Thank you for sharing. Now I must look through the posts I missed out on since I was last here. Ooo cute puppy!
