    Jason's Predators and Other Sketches...

    First, I have to say that this place is wild...I only wish I had found it sooner.

    Here are some pics I have scanned in...crits welcome...

    Most of my work is focused on Predators because they fascinate me. I work with pencils and occasionally pens when I can't find a pencil. Sometimes I will color, but not that often.

    Thanks for the kind words over at my sb.
    Interesting work you have here.
    Seems that there is a dichotomy between the mechanical and
    the natural. You have a greater proficency in the mechanical as opposed to the natural. And when you try to put the two together..there is a bit of a conflict going on.
    Concerning the predator studies...perhaps a different approach might be in order. Instead of copying the outer veneer of the creature...get into the wherefor and why of the creature. Why does he have dreads?...why does he have aligator skin? How do the extra mandibles work? What are the underlying structures that make him/it the way that it is? What niche in the natural order do they fulfill? How did they evolve into the predators and prey that they are....how did they become the top of their respective food chains? etc. Then with questions in hand...go off and make
    your own predator unlike the commerical hollywood version.
    Also understanding the many and varied ways that animals(including humans) are put together is necessary.
    Solidity and structure...
    what I see here is that you are enamoured of comic book anatomy...that cuts both ways....there are exaggerations and mistakes..but it looks freaking cool to fanboys. Understand that the people who draw the comics are well versed in human anatomy and have gone through all the stages of learning and mastering their craft...and also know when and how to break the rules. It's sort of a priveledge you earn after you get all the countless hours of practice in.
    Well...that's just my two.
    Best to ya.

    You seem to possess very good set of skills, but I agree with Helzon, the anatomy is lacking.

    Helzon and OldNoobie - I totally apprecaite your comments. I rarely show people my work, so your comments are greatly appreciated.

    Drawing for me is a hobby and sometimes I got for a couple years without drawing anything. I agree that my anatomy skills are lacking...I concentrate mostly on non-human and draw mostly sci-fi. I've never taken any classes and I know it shows.

    Helzon, you comments about going off and making my own version of the Predator is something l have never really thought about doing. I will have to give to give that some further thought and see what sort of alterations I can do while still having it recognizable.

    Hey man, now I thought I was a big fan of predator
    Helzon and old noobie have pretty much covered the main things to point out. It would be interesting to see your own version of the predator, I really enjoy re designing certain characters Its alot of fun especially when you run out of things to do.
    At the moment im having thoughts on redesigning legacy of kain series characters.

    I may in fact try my hand at designing my own Predator, but right now I want to draw the Predator from the first movie and have all the design characteristics down and perfected first.

    I see a lot of improvement from when you started to your latest post. Very good Predator sketches, but i would love to see some more of your original characters. Keep up the good work.

    Hehe, predators totally rock and so does Schwarzenegger! Loving the line work on those last couple, man these are all so cool, and what could be more awesome to draw? No crits to speak of here. A question though, why is it that not a single post yet has shown the predators feet? They haven't even appeared with boots, don't get me wrong the cut-off effect makes the predator look more cool, but it seems like at least one of them should show the feet...okay so that was a crit, but I didn't realize it until I said it. hehe

    I think the problem with pen&ink is that there is no Ctrl+z command.

    writers and artists have a lot in common -- we both draw from life, we both paint pictures, and we'll both spend to many sleepless nights on our work.
