    heres an enviro speedpaint, about an hour. inspired by the DSG topic 'a ship through a city canal' or something like that.

    tried the speed paint techniques from the workshop, laying in abstract blocks and values and then pulling and cutting shapes. i'm not too sure about the palette, crit away.

    thanks for stopping by.

    some stuff from the weekend, sadly not much drawing but i had a lot of fun camping and playing. a tree at our campsite and a contour of some kind of halo chick who will be filled with details and other such things. this is sort of what i've seen other artists do, where they use one contour for multiple designs.






    and a revisited cyborg headhunter lady

    trying to do at least one color piece a day, this is a semi-speed painting-about 1.5, started with a random shape and worked it until i got something that looked like something.

    Your speed paints are getting better and better. I need to get my ass into gear and get photoshop (and preferably a tablet). I like the pencil one from a couple of updates ago a ton. The girl in the motorcycle helmet one, that is.

    Rock on.

    another sketch, about .5, as i was looking through some reference photos a particular section of one caught my eye and inspired this. the values surrounding a light fixture looked so much like a belly button and distended belly...i borrowed the palette from the photo(didnt color pick) and played around, trying to describe form with value and picking a light source.

    by using the palette from the photo, which i took of my hallway, i was able to move away from the muddiness that i sometimes get stuck in when painting on the fly.

    thanks to all who stopped by, would like to take the time to respond personally but gotta bounce.

    Wonderful pencils and color work,

    I especially like your last post and the idea of taking a set of colors from a reference image and using them as a palette for a new pic.

    Great work and ideas too!

    Keep it going,

    nallen-thanks, i think i'll try more of that color reference technique since my on-the-fly stuff gets so muddy. this next piece really started to get on my nerves after awhile and so it got abandoned, i will eventually work up some pieces covering different fantasy 'races' but i think i'll have to try a different approach, i'll start with a scanned pencil rendering and go from there, much like the headhuntercyborg girl above.



    i want to master digital freestyle painting and so i decided to go back to the basics and work from a reference photo that i took of the hostel that i stayed at in montreal for the workshop. decided to use a hard edged brush at 100%opacity for laying in value and color, started to work as i would with oils, laying in monchromatic values but then decided to lay in the colors as i saw them and worry about the values later. as i finished i set the pen to opacity jitter to blend some of values. about 1.5.

    sorry for the lack of updates, i've been intensely enjoying my summer break. a couple of sketches from the past week of some kind of creature, a rough layout for a series of paintings that i am starting, and a revisited line drawing of a halogirl that i applied some color to.

    a hello and thanks to everyone who stopped by.

    recursive-thanks for subscribing, i'll try to keep this sketchbook going strong.

    Kick ass man, I really dig the second to last one in the first post, with the walker bot emerging from the fog. Do you do underdrawings for the PS paintings, or do you whip them out on the spot?

    boognish-that particular sketch was a freestyle, i rarely work that way since the results are usually atrocious-and that is no BS...i prefer to start with an idea of what and where i am going, that was a happy accident.

    some gibberish envelope sketches and moleskin stuff. the moleskin is nice for scribbling and note taking, mine is about 50/50 words/drawings. these are thumbs for a couple of short stories that i am concepting for fun/portfolio.
