Syrs. Nice to meet you. You know, I live around the Chicago area and I wanted to know your opinion about the Institute and Chicago in general. How are both of them? Expensive? I hear some bad things about the Art Institute, though I've looked into attending it.
I like your works a lot, except that some could be polished a little more (#1, 2, 3, and the last one) other than that, I like them.
Well, I'm a first year so I only get one elective. So far my professors are pretty cool, although I have one course that really lacks. The school is pretty pricey, but it's pretty unique living in the big city and the dorms are amazing.Originally Posted by Gamerhomie
Thanks for the kind words.
Hay. Haven't posted on here for awhile. Here's a quick "hunter" concept.

I was wondering, are all of these done from scratch in Photoshop? I.e. total digital paintings? Your work is exciting and vibrant, and it's really quite impressive considering you're 19, but i do get the feeling that all of these wizzy Photoshop effects are the kind of thing you could do with your hands behind your back.
I'm much more interested in seeing some of your actual sketches - i think showing us these kinds of 'finished products' defeats the object of having a sketchbook thread.
These are really nice pieces, without a doubt, but i think you'll get much more out of posting your initial sketches for people to talk to you about than just the fruits of your labour. I doubt you'll be wanting to go back to any of these, which means that anything people suggest for improvement are just moot points.
I checked out your site, by the way - there's plenty of great stuff on there
Ragdoll Revolution: Yes, the images above were created using Photoshop's brush tool and a Wacom Intuos 3. I'll rough out ideas from time to time in pencil, but that's really as far as I went traditionally with those illustrations.
Some sketches I did this morning:
Phewww, that´s some heavy shit, I mean great...the first piece realy slammed in my face while scrolling down.
Some sketches done at the cafe this morning. One being a tattoo concept for the gf, which involves an "old-fashioned boxing-glove-wearing scuba diver" punching a shark.
he man.. very cool work.. love your coloreflow.. keep it up.. lost some stars in here
Those sketches are really nice - the boxing glove scuba diver idea is pretty sweet lol (although i think it needs a little more work - the shark isn't placed at an angle where it would really feel much of a blow, and the diver doesn't look like he's throwing any kind of weight into the punch).
Again, i think you'll get a lot out of people just talking about your sketches. You have a really nice, loose technique already and i think it's the sort of thing that improves fairly quickly.
The first set of sketches you posted look really similar to my own style - i'm wondering what your big influences are, man? Be interesting to compare lol.
P.S. LOVE where you're going with that organic-looking motorbike lol.
Really cool sketches...love the Blue figure with transparent gun! looks awsome!
Really good start, love the style of the first
wow awesome stuff! I really like your CGing. You got good sense for color. Altough watch out with the propertions of the faces, they seem unsymetrical, try some face studies, keep it up!
ur work is undoubtebly great ... really likeing the photoshop works u have early in the post. u really took advantage of the effects of the brushes (unless im completely off the mark there and u make those details details on ur own).
awesome wings btw ... adn u seem to no wat ur doing with photoshop, im gonna keep in touch for some advice and tips lol if u dont mind
Check out my SKETCHBOOK ...looking for helpful advice!
Yey syrs! ive beenn whatchin u on deviantart for a while... ur work is amazin
FAST ART: Thanks man, checked out your sketchbook and I'm thoroughly impressed by your sketches.
Ragdoll Revolution: A lot of my inspiration comes from music (APC, Cursive, DFA, etc.) If she uses the scuba concept I'll probably rework it, thanks.
spookybabydoll: Thanks, I'm attempting to take a lot of my stylized figure work in that direction, although his right arm is too long.
viran: Agreed, especially with the eyes. They're always off when I flip the image, it's awful.
gkrit: I generally stick to the default circle brush in PS. There were a few exceptions with backgrounds and the more abstract piece that - as you can see, has a lot of repeating patterns.
CRIPPLEhank: heh, thanks
enthombed: Will do.
Towarlock: thanks man, although I have a lot of color theory research to do.
Some more sketches, second one I rendered a little bit. The robots are from the cafe this morning, including the gaybot with the flower obsession.
Some early morning character work. About 10 min. each.

Cool paintings and sketches. The b&w wings is what I like the most I think. Keep on posting mate!
veddy awesome o_o
Some Digital and Traditional quickies. Then I decided to combine the two.
hay, been brushing up on my coloring, should have some more sketches to put up soon.
Work in progress. Suggestions are appreciated.
nice stuff here, man
Bro your work is incredible! Mad props and much respect!For real.....
Great work and progress! About #25, first picture. The arm of the girl in front is a bit off. Something about the shoulders, it's too tense. Perhaps move it down a bit would help. I'm loving the colors though. Be sure to post the finished work! I can't wait to see.
Sweet stuff so far.
