great updates! http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1181771235
my first reaction was "cool!" but then the shadows started to settle in my eyes and the line work with the shadows makes it look very flat...not that it's renderd wrong but the contrast of the lines vs. the darkest dark.
hey man glad to hear you're having fun, i think the ears of the girl in the update might be a bit high and her armpit area looks a bit confusing (not sure the torso overlaps like that) other than that, its looking great
i love! the superwomen its like me in the mornings!and the mars attacks...thats great!
You could take the spalk spark whatever his name is from star treck with the captain and do sumthing quite funny..have u seen the family guy episode with the captain?!...watch it
also hey whats with the censoring?! and oh im not used to this site or things like this...just got into it
Today I have a little wallpaper for you. It is 1280x1024px optimized for most TFTs. If you want another size of the wallpaper please send me an email or PM me and I will post some more with the next updates.
Blaz: Thank you! I will not work on the last sketch any more. With 'in development' I meant the character not this particular image. This image was just a quick test I did. But I will definitely post more images of this girl later this year
hurricane: Thanks for stopping by and for your crits! I totally appreciate it.
paperX: Thank you too!
Jaz Ayling: Thanks for your comment. It seems like you came here from my website and registered to post in this thread... is this true? If so, a big Thank You! BTW: I don't know the family guy episode but I think I will have to check this one out...
hey man the wallpaper looks nice, im not sure about her shadow though...it seems to lack depth (dunno how else to describe it) she looks like she's hovering above the ground sorta at the minute...just my 2 cents, keep it up man
paperX: Hey thx for checking by again. Regarding the shadow you are right... I was a little lazy with this one because I did not plan to do a wallpaper, just the figure in the first place. So the shadow was done very quick, same by the tracks and the light on the ground.
Discoskull: Thank you man! Regarding the shadow read my answer to paperX please.
Justin Oaksford: Hi Justin. Thank you for your comment. I concentrate on comic art this days without making this stuff too realistic looking. I prefer the 'unrealistic' stuff where you can see it is not a photograph. But you are right... I need more practice with life drawings to get more dynamic poses in the future. ... never stop learning
So first a little self promotion for today...
My illustrated 'Tales from the Crypt' comicstory "Extra Life" (written by Neil Kleid) can be preordered at Amazon.com. Here is the link to the book:
He Chris congrats to your Tales from the Crypt illustration!!!! And you make a tutorial for gamestar dev, ha great magazine they did a 3pages interview of us last year looking forward to see the tut finished. Looks cool so far.
when you get to hell, tell them I sent you - you`ll get a group discount
Dreamworker: Thanks! Maybe I will do a fast background later... but it depends on how much time I have left because the deadline is coming very fast
hurricane: Thank you! I changed the skin in this one (see image in this post) on the background character. It is very dark right now but I will work over the two figures at the end and will add some more details later.
kischi: Thank you very much! I know the article you mentioned. It was very interesting! GameStar/dev is a great mag... so do not forget to buy my new tutorial when it comes out... hehehe
Here is another WIP image with a bigger view of the girls head:
You know what? Your images allways make my day. Two ways. One in a very good way, like whoooaaa that´s sooo awesome. And then like, shit, why can´t i do crazy stuff like that. All at the same fucking time.
Great going Kollege. VERY inspirational. Thanks.
A tutor once said to me: "Let your mind go!" and it didn´t come back.
Flesheater: Thank you! It is good to see you like my art. I'm always trying to work more in thoughts of 'comic' then 'uberrealistic'.
Dynamike: Thx Dynamike! I bet you will hate me if I tell you I have an uncensored verion of this... hehe
bbwolf: Hehe... A big THANK YOU Kollege! You made my day with your comment on my art. Great to know you like it so much.
mrpank: Thank you! Good to know my stuff is inspiring... I think this is the point I really know I can give something to this fantastic board and not only consume all the other fantastic art here. ... THX!
zweiDee: Thank you! ... I will make you all so jealous now... I have an uncensored version of this girl too... hehehe But you say it... it looks sexy and that is because she doesn't show it all.
Here is a small image of my next cover I did for the German novel series spinoff to MADDRAX:
Hehe, my pleasure if I was able to generate that warm fuzzy feeling of a day well made.
Anyway. the last maddrax cover....um...seems like there´s "something" lacking in the front. At first I could hardly tell that he is standing at the edge of a small ledge high in the air. It all kinda smudged together with the HTG aka BG
Nevertehless, who am I crit you? I looks fanastic. What kind of info do you get for such a piece of work? Written instructions? A short sketch? Do the make you read the whole story and let yourself decide?
And what about the comic??? You finally got Alpha Bettie in gear?
A tutor once said to me: "Let your mind go!" and it didn´t come back.
... still busy with things I can't talk about yet...
drd: You are not supposed to... you have to read the stories! Thanks for your comment. I'm working as a freelance artist on different projects at the same time... so yes I'm doing this as a fulltime job beside many other projects. In this biz I think you have to be some kinda 'Jack of all trades'.
Flesheater: The novels will be great! The original Maddrax stories are unique and much fun to read. I love them and I'm sure the spinoff will be as great... if not greater . Thx!
bbwolf: Thx for your comments! Regarding the covers I get detailed written informations on the content. I don't know the whole stories yet and talk with the editor about the compositions.
Regarding Alpha Bettie: Dan Taylor (the author of the book) will be back from SanDiego Comic Con 2007 tomorrow and I'm sure he will bring back some good Bettie news...
Regarding my other comic projects... I still can't talk about my new project yet but can give you a very small sneak on another one: Here is one of my first character sketches for my creator owned book I will do after my next project is finished... here it is:
I want more sketchstuff! Most of your work here looks 'finished'... what about sketches and more concepts? The rough stuff.
Don't get me wrong. I like your art, but I love to look at 'unfinished' stuff.
More like your last post...
