hey man great update! nice of you to keep churning out these great pieces even with homework in your way!
one little thing...maybe make the irises a bit darker? they could use that extra push to draw more attention
keep up the hard work!
Dig the patterning and layering that you weave into these - you do it better and more seamlessly each time.
Rendering on the sp is damn awesome bro,
keep up this amazing book man.
Inspiring each time.
I love the little design details you've put in there, like the swaggering line on the right side.
don't know if it is a good sp. what did you use? photo or mirror? (maybe mind )

Here are some pencils. APOCALYPTO (the movie) IS AWESOME !!
Colors coming in the next update
Well, your movie taste is obviously aligned most parallel with my own, so I definitely need to go see Apocalypto, an I STILL need to see The Fountain ...
Astounding updates man. Like the looser page with the tons of figures, nice energy in them.
Think you'll need to wait some time longer for that crit. A looong time. if ever.
keep grinding my precious my love
stunning stuff Daniel.
tries to give you some more stars.
Anyway I agree with Timmy, the pillar in #539 is sex, and further the two first pages in #548 makes me wet
keep em coming
HOLY COW!!!!! man, those are some incredibly nice updates.... NNNNNNICE!
i love the first one, but the dude i the top right of the second one is so cool, you got some awesome curves in him and the design elements are very nice indeed..... man i don't know what else to say, you are kicking supreme ass!
brendan is too right, criting your work is impossible!
Sounds like you want to find a in Daniels armour so that you can come in with a word or two edgewiseOriginally Posted by paperX
Given those torsos it's doomed, doomed I tell you!
Man, those last pencils are looking great! Once again no crits.
And I guess I'll go see Apocalypto, though it might clash with my temporary sparta obsession that I expect after 300 this weekend.
only 4 stars? come on everyone. we're all pals here. (damn you one star giver...damn you )
5 stars for you! great stuff. keep 'em coming. i love how you try to include backgrounds and designs in your sketches. all good here.
i agree, some paint would be nice but im still trying to swallow your pencil work....

Dile: thank you =
Oki: alo! Thanks, don't worry they're coming.. slowly but surely.
Brendan: lol thanks ! I don't think apocalypto should be seen as a movie but more as a documentary (even though there are alot of historical and social errors...). hehe but the makeups and costums are worth the ticket's price. Go see it !!
Solon: thank you ! You're doing some great job with watercolours =)
Dan: thanks, i will !!
Kronos: lol thanks! I'm sure a pro would see lots of flaws in my stuff... but oh well ^^....
PaperX: Thanks ! Here's a new one...it's a very sketchy one but i'm still working on it.
Dan: hah !
Enthombed: good to hear Thanks !
Cup: hehe, you won't be disappointed...at least, i wasn't
Ryan: Thank you very much for the support man! you too, see ya !
Paper: lol i don't think that would ever happen...looking at how some artist are shaping up here at ca. And i'm sure there are even more in fine arts that would kick my ass
A bit more on the previous page and some ~20/30 minutes stuff
'night everyone !
good stuff, I like the 2nd most, don't know what it is though, I'm currently seeing a angel/daemon/cross/bone mecha that needs to pee badly ~ but it's good
Interesting - I found The Da Vinci code to be an very decent (even excellent at times) documentary, but it was really an appalling movie. Will probably receive Apocalypto in the same fashion.
The linework in the second pic reminds me of Rich's stuff - looks awesome, really like the design. First one is shaping up really well and the sp looks damn good and judging from that photo of you in the lounge, very accurate. Just beware of blacks for shadows - remember as colour lights up it moves closer to 100% sat. and 100% brightness.
keep updating mon ami (?)
hey man, so i don't think this qualifies as a crit but a remark at least. on this one something weird is going on around the lower dude's face, i think you need to at least hint at the lines that finish his hair off at the side it doesn't read as fading off into the darkness... however i have a feeling you are infact perfect and that its just the scans that are going a bit weird, in real life is all the hatching in the background solid black? if not, then the shadow coming over that guys face isn't convincing as its not black black? if you follow me also it looks like the darkest darks are in that guys eyes and mouth, is that the same in real life? anyway your still working on it so just a couple things to think about i guess.
other stuff is killer as always, but DON"T AVOID THE COLOUR! well actually i think there really isn't a huge hurry, but if you want to commit to colour, commit to colour try creating a new layer and setting it to soft light if you just want to play around with adding saturation and hues on that sp.
i haven't actually read this article yet but i remember seeing something about how the artist applies different hues and such, take a look
hey man really like the updates (especially the second guy there)
but like as kronos has said add some more colours in your digi's man, some reds, some yellows, purples etc dont be afraid to spice things up
your recent stuff is really nice. shows improvement. theres probably a few anatomy things I could nit pick about but just really awesome work. havent seen APOCALYPTO yet.
Not to sound cheezy but you brave with your values and strokes. I wuss out. 5 stars keep rocking with your pencils.
Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!
