    Poshspice - Liber Aly: A Voice from Catland

    First off thankyou for this! As someone who has never kept a sketchbook here, it feels pretty special to be asked, so thankyou. And considering the company here, I feel pretty humbled... I would have updated this sooner, but for computer probs.

    What I'll do is post stuff I don't intend putting anywhere else, or hasn’t been shown, (with a couple of exceptions) and doodles and things. And yup, there will be some girls... one or two... maybe...

    Not exactly sketches, but I haven’t posted these here before.



    Astarre: Done for a tutorial in Imagine FX magazine. Typical of my winged thing obsession

    Poshspice - Liber Aly: A Voice from Catland

    ImagineFX Cover: Title says it all really. Just over a week to do it, and fit it in between my full time job, which meant a lot of late nights… Particularly because of the resolution they want things at. The pose is a bit stiff as it had to fit pre-decided text. Excuses...

    Ooops! Pin-Up: I’ve been looking at a lot of pin-up stuff recently, particularly Gil Elvgren, Robert McGinnis and Joe Chiodo. Reference for the boots. I found a great pair online I thought would suit her. I’m going to try and do a lot more stuff like this.

    Couple of quicker doodles in Photoshop.

    Oldies

    As asked, here is the process shots for one of my pics. The 'Astarre' angel girlie, as I had them all saved for the ImagineFX tut.

    Also some very old model sheets I found on an old disc I was browsing through. The characters were for a show that only went to pilot, as I remember, and they were called 'Mouth and Trousers'. I thought I'd share them as they made me smile when I found them. The characters were created by an old friend Jon Doyle, with whom I must get back in touch and developed by me.

    Some more stuff. A mixed bag... The bits of my Thunderdome piece I actually liked. Maybe I can salvage something from the car crash eventually... Also the rough sketch, and one of the many doodles I did before settling on the pic I ended up with, which I might work up a bit more. After those are a current WIP of a slightly more stylised thing I'm doing for a friend, and a lunchtime quickie of what Kim Possible could look like.

    Thankyou for looking....

    Thought I'd post some of the extremely quick doodles I did before I settled on the 'bread' thing I ended up doing for my round 3 Thunderdome piece. These are all just sketches to get an idea down with no attention to technique or style (bit like most of my stuff really!), so they tend to end up being only line.

    Rough 1: A sort of Steampunky Victorian thing, a bit like a panel from a story.
    Rough 2: Kids discovering 'something' in a garage... (Dave P - great minds eh?!)
    Rough 3: More Victoriana stuff, a trip to see the rocket from another world unearthed somewhere in the desert...
    Rough 4: The original 'bread' idea, with the bread in a museum.
    Rough 5: Could that be Elvis working in the chipshop...?
    Rough 7: Unearthing the 'original' cross of the crucifixion.

    All had potential I suppose, but in the end I went with something simpler, because I only have a simple brain!

    UK/Scandinavia Thunderdome

    Yes, I did another girl for the Thunderdome! Well there is a reason for this, and one day it shall all become clear... so bare/bear with me.

    Thanks Torstein for agreeing to let me do a pin-up!

    Slightly larger reworked version (she's now a bit more trashy!), plus a WIP montage. Originally there were two girls, but I felt one suited the composition better, and anyway, I was running out of time!

    I decided to call her Cheryl!

    Another pin-up, this time for the ImagineFX birthday issue, out imminently. They asked their regulars to send in a quick drawing to celebrate a year of issues. Photoshop, over two or three evenings with a bit of a tweak the other day. Once again, in a sort of fifties stylee...

    I was looking at some 'Gibson' girls today and they kind of reminded me of Jeff Jones' drawings. The profiles... And after looking at Bluefooted's thread on how to 'cheat' digital watercolour I thought I'd have a go. This was the result after work today. Just an experiment, and not quite right, but it was going in the right way, so I thought I'd post it, with a step by step. I think I'll have another go, as I might have 'grubbied' it up too much..! Edit: Gave her a dagger, and she's now 'Medea'! Chicks and swords!

    And a quick study for a pic I might develop a bit further, also kind of in the style of John R. Neill, one of the early 'OZ' story illustrators.

    Edit: I've added a quick experiment with brushes and an attempt to be faster in Photoshop, followed by a pic which somehow ended up looking a bit Joe Chiodoish, unintentionally. However a bit of black eyeliner and some pink liberally splashed about seemed to help!

    Alrighty..ikuru and Soja there were separate threads elsewhere to respond to the Exclusive Sketchbook folks because it was determined early on that some may simply jam the thread up with nonsense.
    However, as of late I believe it was Oblio who has merged or done away with that so now one can respond directly here. Hope that clears it up.
    Cheers to you both.

    amazing stuff! I First saw your work with your angel from imagineFX. That tutorial was very helpfull in getting me into doing digital painting.

    Everything is beautiful.

    subjective crit
    In some cases the skintones on your ladies seem a bit plastic and cold to me. Almost too perfect if you know what I mean? I think they need some translucency, slight discolorations and broader value range...They are lovely as is, but I put this out to you as a constructive crit.

    I would have replied sooner but for a little problem with the thread. Cheers Oblio!

    Ikuru - Thankyou maytee! You know why no one was posting now! The 'pencil' is the Conte crayon in Photoshop with shape dynamics tweaked a bit.

    Soja - Thanks loads!

    Helzon - Cheers for clearing that up!

    Nicolas - I love you.

    Kian - I really should post something else shouldn't I? Thankyou old bean!

    Chuck,mate - Haha! She was a play in Photoshop as I had the Space Hopper idea, and somewhere along the line I put black eyeliner on her and she looked a bit like a Joe Chiodo girl!

    Tom Cardin - Thankyou loads sir! Your crit is very valid and welcome. What I need to do is start playing around with greens and blues as a base colour to get translucency rather than oranges and pinks which give too much warmth I think.

    Wasker - Thankyou!

    Man, your stuff is beautiful!
    It seems as if you are a natural-born comic aritst. And in my books that gives you a lot of credit!

    Cheers to your work,

    Great stuff here, they are all great but my favourite is the 'skippygirl'. I like the variety of your work as well.

    I haven't put anything in this thread for ages so here's a few bits and bobs. Mainly from the Character of the Week challenges. A mocked up poster of old AC as a prestidigitator!, and a WIP of Dorothy of OZ based on an earlier pic.

    Alien Detective, Sam Gunn
    Petra Hepburn
    Mr Hyde

    Neat. As far as wings go, I understand obsession, but the wing thing has been kind of worn out in past years. Possibly you should experiment with different bird wings, like a redwinged black bird, or a sparrow, or finch. Kind of common birds, but uncommon in the angel world.
