    EOW 72 : cathedral of Lilith

    I experimented a lot of new things in this one, especially the custom brushes (being able to use a bird brush is awesome)

    Edit : updated after SEVANS and Jakers post : tried to boost a bit the value and saturation where the light falls, I think it's really better

    Some very cool work, don't be afraid of having some hard edges and higher contrast in your digital work. The confidence and boldness of your ink work gets more attention because of this.

    SEVANS : You're right, that may be because I'm very new to digital painting, and because it's much, much harder than lines with plain flashy colors, like I did before.

    I hope one day I'll be more confident, and maybe find a way to reconcile my former lineworks with all I've learned in terms of color.

    I remember commenting on a couple of your digital pieces, maybe in the critique center section? Nice to find your sketchbook.

    I agree that a stronger value range could be played with in the cathedral image since it is more realistic than some of your pervious work - it doesnt look wrong, but a stronger light souce could make it more attractive and allow more surface definition. See you around friend

    Thanks for your crits and comments, I edited my cathedral, and I need to really watch my values in my future works.

    I'm learning so much, thanks to concept art and all the people making it... You all rock !

    Haha insane figures above...reminds me of a strange take on the famous rock sculptures of anatomy studies - like a torso missing the arms and head. ya im lame and dont know my art history.


    I think your dragon train attack would be much more dramatic in closer, interesting idea so perhaps one day you can do something similar from a different angle.

    The one below that the perspective seems wrong...wouldn't it be angling down towards the horizon going away from us? The vanishing point you've chosen might work for the other side of the building...unless its tilted on purpose, than excuse me

    Thanks for the kind comments.

    Jakers : by the low horizon, I wanted to suggest that this green building is insanely high, but there might be a mistake there. And please don't hesitate to make that kind of crits, I personnaly hate artists that says "I know it looks ugly, but that was done on purpose", because in a lot of cases it just shows a lack of self-questionning. Really great figurative artists never need to say "that was done on purpose", their pictures are great, period. I often make perspective mistakes, I need to be more careful, and maybe brush-up a bit my foundations in that area...

    still manages to do a speed painting once a week. I also do a master study once a week, and one hour of free drawing per day. I hope progress will come...

    I'm drawing my dreams these days, when I'll have something worth showing, I'll show it to you...

    There's a strange difference in quality between some of your paintings. Ah well perhaps it's because you are painting a variety of things and some of them you aren't quite as good yet. I'd like to see you focus on atmospherics in some of your speedpaints...I think that would help you to get more depth and range of values.

    Glad to see the pages of sketches though, keep it up! Your figures are stiff in some of the more actiony poses where I think you're trying to figure things out but that will only improve.

    Ian Mack : Someone else told me that about the big quality differences... This last speed sure looks like crap.

    I've got difficulties to appreciate the quality of what I do, especially when I do it. Sometimes I'm very happy with what I did, but when I look at it a few days later, I see how bad it is. The contrary also happens.

    That may be because I'm new to digital painting. But when I think about it, I always know in the back of my mind if one of my pic is better than the previous ones or not...

    Here is the drawing of one of tonight's dream :

    You do an hour of drawing a day...I wonder if there is something from that you might want to show

    Do you ever do a fill of a base color over your canvas to start with. Even if you cover up most of it with higher opacity, it can still show though and perhaps give your image more ambience and fit together. Too many fully contrasting colors makes things feel independant instead of sitting in the scene...I'm getting hammered on with crits about bounced light in my work so I'm trying to think of how you might apply it yourself.

    Ok, so I haven't been posting for nearly a month, since Form's environmenting class aborted. So now it's time for me to kick my own lazy butt.

    My goal and deadline will be the beginning of september : I want to have a nice portfolio then, and start looking for work.

    That's 150 days : if I manage to paint one illustration a week (and that can be easily done, as I have 2 days free in the week, and 2 days of weekend), that'll make 20 illustrations, plus what I have so far. So from now on, I need to produce one illustration a week and keep that pace till september.

    All of this is only blabla, I'll post my first finished illustration before sunday.

    I'm set in "eye of the tiger" mode now. Beware.

    Thats definately a good goal, though I expect that it will be interrupted here and there....the only problem with that type of schedule is things may start to overlap, and you might rush something to get it finished. lets face it, some things take more time than others to create!

    You also might end up exploring more thumbnail possibilites (with you most certainly should do before commiting....the ones you did above here are great) and that process should be given enough time! Just my suggestion, but even getting 10 really nice ones without a specific time frame for each, might be a better goal? Then you will also be willing to scrap illustrations along the way there just missed the mark without feeling bad. Who knows just tryin to help
