    Come on, Page 2 will be here soon, browsing this thread with my snail-powered DSL800 connection is a pain in the butt.

    Ok, here's something I've been messing around with. Really quick (none over 10 minutes) and just slapping some scenes onto the paper listening to the Homeworld Soundtrack, one of the best Orchestral soundtracks available. Maybe I'll continue the story...

    Thx DARAF.

    Ok, I finally finished my final school project and am now full of excitement for the results. The last days were like taking a walk in hell, I'm rather exhausted (maybe it's the Vodka as well). Then again, I feel great excitement about this new stage. Well, civilian service first, not too crazy about that. A school for mentally disabled and difficult children. But well, I have to do it. I'll do more art related stuff and will be applying for college at the same time. Maybe travel somewhere. Whew!

    Ok, here's a speedy from today...

    I have to find a good capturing program yet. Then I'll make a video of one of my speedies. It's basically criss-cross movement on a very extreme range in order to achieve perspective. SHIFT or ALT add or subtract from the selection respectively. Then, STRG+H will hide the selection. Go over it with either a hard edge brush (harsh speedy look) or a soft one (good for round surfaces of course).

    Here's another example. It's fun to block in really big shapes with low pen pressure and use the overlaps to convey depth (mountains in the background, although I smudged it for the smoke... I hope you like.

    Hey dude. Your paintings are great. I like that you have started to tighten some of them up. Keep doing that.
    Your pencils, in comparison, are a lot weaker. I use the word 'weaker' simply because your paints are so good. I think you should concentrate some time on drawing more. Do some life studies. And work on your mech design a bit. Maybe do a load of thumbnails to get interesting shapes before going in and painting something.

    Keep it up : ]

    Great stuff man! I love how good your at keeping a high contrast in your images (which is something I have problems with). It makes your comps read very well, you should practice some on getting in some atmospheric perspective though.

    I really really love the color scheme you got on this image http://www.drain5.com/pics/art/speed/duolit_redux.jpg It reminds me of Another World from my old amiga500 when I was a kid. Oh, and I agree with cartoonfox you should study life stuff more.

    I know its very easy to get used to just "block" in the shapes when painting, but its also important to shift methods and draw your shapes in lines, it will really help you understand the various shapes you draw in 3d. Keep it up!

    cartoonfox: Thanks, man. I'm getting into the pencil stuff again, I almost forgot how great it is to work with pencils and paper. Kicking off right away without saving files or pushing buttons.

    am7: Thx. I love your stuff, you've got all the action going on in your paintings that I need in mine

    designboot: Thanks!

    Alright, here's a new one. Yesterday I chopped off the skin of my fingertip with a door, so I'm kind of disabled since it hurts when I stress my thumb. Anyway, here's what I got out of it. Tried to add some structure and texture since the last selection-based paintings looked flat to me.

    Bunch o' new stuff

    Hey there, long time no see.

    Okay, so I'm a media designer now. Graduated with an A for my practical and a B for my theoretical finals. No university tho, we have those strange three year long vocational educations here in Old Europe.

    So, after a two week carousal I took everyone's advice and did draw. A lot. Here are some of the results that are worth showing. In no particular order, but most of them are this week's work. The arian Hitler poop is the latest (just finished). Most of them are pencils, some were done with fineliners and some copic to add to the mess or to get some inspirational shapes. Hope you like them. Feedback is welcome as always.

    Great stuff. My favourite is the fat bloke with jar on his head. And the nviros- oh my God- they're really good.

    My only concern is that pic of Adolf Hitler... I hope you think of him as an anti-hero 'Cos you're German, you know, and I suppose it's kinda brave of you to draw Adolf. I just thought it's some kind of a tabboo to draw that motherfucker
