eheheh very nice idea ( I love NY bahahaha ), I like especially the colors and the retro design of the image, I think that you could obtain more dynamis of figure if you used a little torsion of the robot chest!
Keep more update mate
I'm old... no... I mean the stuff in this post today is old.
First: The image in this post is some old stuff I did some years ago as a backcover illustration for a 'Perpetrated Press' roleplaying book.
The reason I post some old art today is I always wanted to post with showing some art too and I can't show any of my new stuff yet, so I use this old image instead while posting. And I had to post because you guys are crazy and giving me and the sketchbook 5 stars! THANK YOU! I appreciate it and I will work hard to keep up the quality. Thx again!
To your posts:
Dreamworker: Thanks! Great you like the idea and the design I think this kind of image (with the 'mad' professor) can only work with some kind of retro design. Something new would look too strange I think. The robot has to look like he was made from cheap parts and by one guy only... some kind of garage production... like Apple (just kidding!) hehe
Infinit: Thx man! It is not the 'normal' Gamestar btw... it is the GameStar/dev magazine for developers... and hopefully they don't play Burning Crusade too much
legionare: Thank you! I tried to look up your link but it isn't working. Can you post another please?
Flesheater: Thx! Nice Avatar btw ...and as I said before I think the retro design is the only one which works with this kind of 'story' behind the image. But you are right (a little bit ) I like the retro stuff. Must be my fable for Flash Gordon. And regarding Alpha Bettie: I can't talk about it yet. It will be announced when the issue is finished.
Arne S.: Thx man! Great to see you here again ... I think the perspective can't be extreme enough hehe Regarding Bettie: I had to finish some other stuff like the workshop and will finish pencils on Bettie soon. It has to be inked and colored then which will take me some time too... so realistically and because I only can work in my spare time on Bettie I think it will take some more weeks. Keep a look at my blog (www.chrisnoeth.de) where I will post when it is finished. Probably there will be some preview stuff before too
Dynamike: Thank you! You should see his brother... hehe
I've got some feedback on my work from the last months. All in all people like it but want to see more 'realistic' and less cartoony stuff... so your wish is my command and I will show you something else... starting with this... it is called...
Very nice concepts...
i really like the idea about Alpha Betti...the combination of old timer airplanes and future space crafts ^^!
Personally i dont mind cartoony you have your style which is great!
Bright and clean!
Blaz: Thanks man! Great you like the Bettie designs.
The new issue of 'GameStar/dev' is out now. It contains my tutorial MakingOf about how I made the 'Scientist In Love' image you can see some posts above.
Before I started to work out the image I did some idea-thumbnails. Because they are so small in print here are some bigger versions... but keep in mind they are only fast thumbnails to sketch down some ideas...
Hey what is this? I post some of my old stuff and loose one star... damn!
Dynamike: Thank you! Sure it will work out and give me the chance to do more concept designs and comic related material. I'm looking forward to this new time! ... there could be worst things than working from home and being his own boss.
Flesheater: Thank you too! You will see more of my comic work... I don't know if you will see it here but you can buy it ... hehe. Sure I will post what I'm allowed to post. The girl with the green spacesuit was a quick designsketch I did for a comic project I had planned to do as an album for the european market. I decided to do something for the american market instead when Dan contacted me with Alpha Bettie which is a fantastic story I instantly loved and had to do. 2006 started as a great year and ended as a very sad one because of a death in my family. My wife and my little boy are okay and I'm looking forward to the time ahead and some great projects... Bettie included
And because this is a Sketchbook and I posted too much old stuff already... here are some newer sketches of two childhood heroes...
Hey there nice work with the Star Trek characters!! I love that show and always will. Don't worry about the stars, just keep doing what you're doing. Those stars are not an accurate representation of your work.
And finally a big HELLO to Peter Bergting! I know you are surfing my sketchbook... hehehe
If you guys don't know Peter's fantastic comic 'The Portent' (Image Comics) yet go and buy it! It is available in German now too.
I don't know where to start. I have so much news to tell...
Ok, let me start with saying "I've quit my job". ... I'm sure this is something you would like to say too right!? hehe
... and it gets better: I relocated and I will work as a freelancer from at home starting today
My first project is a comic for the new 'Tales from the Crypt' comics from Papercutz. I will start working on it in exact 8 hours from now.
Today I've finished a tutorial for the biggest German game developer magazine 'GameStar/dev' where I created a character. The Tutorial will show how I created the Girl you can see in this post.
Beside my comic work on TFTC I will work on cover illustrations for a German book publisher. More about this very cool gig I will tell you soon...
Hi Chris, nice to see you again. First of all I must say "Good Luck with your new job experience", I think that with your great talent the customers will be truly large in number.
I like the last character, especially the clothes.
Keep sharing, cheers
Dreamworker: A big THANK YOU for your kind words! Great you like the girl from the tutorial.
I'm trying to post more stuff in the future now that I'm working full time as a freelancer but I'm so deep into fantastic new projects right now I think it will take a while to get to the 'regular' posts... so for today it is only a fast sketch with some color tests I did for one of my current projects. I think you will hear about it soon
Flesheater: Thx again! I will post more sketches later in June. Right now I'm too busy with other stuff. Regarding Tales from the Crypt I think my story will appear in issue #2. The story is called 'Extra Life'.
RaistlinTheDark: Thank you! Great you like my stuff.
Ur coloring is some of the best stuff I seen on this sight.....i love the soft colors and how u Handel your highlights on many of your pieces………….
And your sketches are very neat and clean …clean crisp lines I love that…
After my first month as a freelancer I can already tell this is a fantastic experience and I am very glad I made this jump. If you want to read more about my current projects you can read my new blog entry at www.ChrisNoeth.com
kischi: Danke! Thanks too for checking by!
Discoskull: Thank you very much! Working as a comic book artist is great. Comics are the medium I love most and it is very satisfying to work on sequentials and telling a story with pictures. Regarding the girl on the roof... she is based on a story I will do as a creator owned project someday. The sketch in todays post is a 'close up' of this girl
stonercurly: Thank you for your comment! I do not work on many b&w sketches this days because I use the break time to try out color techniques like you can see in the sketch below. But I will do more b&w sketches asap.
iceman478: Thank you very much! Great you like my art. Thanks for your kind words.
paperX: Thanks for checking my sketchbook and for your comment! Sure it is okay to subscribe hehe. My 'new' job is fantastic! Check out todays blog entry at www.ChrisNoeth.de to read more details. Thx!
So here is a new quicky, showing a character (in development) for my creator owned comic I will do someday. I did this one to try a color technique.
