I have started a new sketchbook thread about my creator owned comic MAYA where I will show MAYA related artwork only.
I really would appreciate if you can stop by and give regular comments about the development. I want this thread to become a 'Making Of' thread on how I am developing the art for the books. I also want to get feedback to make this comic one hell of a ride for action, Sci-Fi and horror comic fans.
If you really like the art I also would appreciate a five star vote to make the thread really known and spread the word about the upcoming book.
I will post Maya related art in the new thread earlier and later update this sketchbook with the stuff, so please follow the other thread if you want the newest updates on the comic.
Nonetheless here is the newest Maya Sketch and a preview for my upcoming game art workshop from the German print magazine "Making Games" 03/09 showing the original concept art of BadAss Rabbit and the 3d mapping and texture I did for the 3D model in the new workshop.
Feedback always welcome! ... especially in the new MAYA thread
I think your sketchbook will need anatomy training urgently to give it injection of naturalness in characters, your rendering is good and accurate but characters are stiff and little too cartoonlike in many aspects.
Bridgman studies, life drawing and posemaniacs would make progress faster
I have finished working on a new making of article about the animation of my BadAss Rabbit (see past posts). I still have to write the article but you can see a small test animation from the project here:
sorry I haven't dropped by in a while man, school's been keeping me busy. Glad to see the comic has finally taken off, I really respect you for making your dream come true man...the story seems to be really shaping up so far, keep working hard!
Nice comic man! Really enjoy your drawing style and color scheme.
Only thing I noticed is that you always focus on full figure or shots of the head.. Maybe that's just me, but it generates a little bit of ... boredom. Maybe try some detail shots of the protagonists hands or close-ups of her eyes/ mouth, etc ? But well, I'm just a hobby-comic reader
Keep it up, wanna see the next page soon!
Here are some pages from an old creator-owned comic pitch I did some years ago.
I haven't shown them here in my sketchbook, so I thought I should add them.
I wasn't very active over the last months because for the last years I totally concentrated on my game related work. But after quitting my job in the game biz in March 2013 and founding my own company McPeppergames in April 2013 I now have enough spare time left to concentrate on improving my comic art skills. So that's my plan: Improving my comic art in my spare time to pitch some new creator-owned material in the future.
Here are the pages of SNACK... with my story, art and lettering:
If you are interested in getting VERY early info about my new project you should read the following:
McPeppergames started working on a huge top secret #adventure game project. And you can read more about it in the new company blog post here: http://www.mcpeppergames.com/blog/
If you want to get updates on the project please use the new newsletter sign up form on the blogs right sidebar.
Thx for your interest and I'm looking forward to catching up with you guys in the future!
Uff... wanted to post here more often, but you know: the daily work routine is preventing me from doing any new art I can post here.
Here are some illustrations of animals I'm doing for our kids apps. I really hope I can post something more 'cool' soon
That snack stuff
is pure genius.
Thank you FROZ3N for your nice comment! I wished the comic company I was talking to had picked Snack up... but unfortunately they didn't.
Regarding MAYA I just uploaded the pages so far to a sketchblog at: http://chrisnoeth.blogspot.de/
