    Chris, long time since I've been over to this thread. Hey! I just downloaded a cool free program called Blacksmith 3D that lets you paint objects in 3D. It's pretty good for a freeware program. There are a few videos on YouTube that demonstrate how to use it. Definelty worth a try! Nice stuff.

    Making Games

    cout<mecha: Thx for the information!

    As you know, the Games Convention, one of the largest videogame conventions in the world is taking place in Germany (Leipzig) this week. So what’s better than playing games you ask? I would say “Reading Comics.” ... but this week there is another answer: Getting into ‘Making Games’!
    You now have the chance to get all the knowledge you need to get into the world of game creation with reading the new German magazine ‘Making Games’. It is the new format of the magazine ‘GameStar/dev’ the biggest game developer magazine in Germany.
    In this new issue (which is available NOW!) you will find part 3 of my 3D-workshop where I show the 3D-mapping of a 3D-game model.

    Attachment 445049

    I just wanted to let you know so you can get the new magazine. If you are at the Games Convention make sure to check out the fantastic magazines.

    Best,

    Chris

    Sketch Video 01

    I have started a new sketch video series.

    Here is part one with sketches of Prof. Charles Xavier and Rogue from the Marvel Comic Series X-Men...

    http://www.vimeo.com/1613087

    I tried to use YouTube but the quality sucked so I'm using vimeo... and I'm glad I have found it because the quality is great now!

    Best,

    Chris

    PS: Copyright X-Men by Marvel Comics of course

    Free 'Draw & Paint' Comic Videos online!

    What began as a small sketch video series now is a tutorial series in High Definition (HD)!

    Attachment 454849

    It is made for comic fans and aspiring artists out there.

    The best part: It is complete free of charge and you can embed the videos in your blog, website and so on. You also can download the original size videos at the vimeo site.

    Because I only can upload 500MB each week you will have to wait for the second part of the 'Hellgirl' paint video until next week. Here are the links to the sketch video and part one (of two) of the paint video:

    'Draw & Paint' - Hellgirl - Sketch Video

    'Draw & Paint' - Hellgirl - Paint Video - Part 1 of 2

    The sketch video is shown in real time. The paint video is faster.

    Please spread the word and use the image from above.

    Have fun and drop me a line if you like the new series!

    Best,

    Chris

    It is good to see how you work with the burn tool and how you are adding the lights to the character.

    Hillary Clinton - Comic

    Dynamike: Thx. There will be more vids but it will take a while until I can do them because of my work schedule right now.

    paperX: Thx for dropping by... no hard feelings here and thx for your comment.

    Today I have something controversial. Mhhh... not exactly my work but the pose and layout of the following comic cover.

    The story behind this image: I was asked to do a comic cover for Bluewaters 'Hillary Clinton' comic which will be out in January '09. It should look like an already finished quick cover version (which had a fourteen stripes american flag) from another artist. You can see the other artists cover HERE.
    The cover design had to fit into the IDW books about Obama and McCain with cover art from J. Scott Campbell (see HERE).

    I did a new version of the cover and Sven Strangmeyer (My creative partner on the 'Ray Harryhausen Presents: It Came From Beneath The Sea... Again!' mini-series) colored the cover.

    Here it is...

    Attachment 482828

    And here is the finished cover with added title graphics by Bluewater...

    Attachment 482839

    The final cover fits into IDWs covers of Obama and McCain and was planned to fit into this other two political comics from the beginning.

    I never thought about 'stealing' a design or pose here because I didn't have thought in terms of publishers or artists on this one but only from a political view because the 'comic' audience on this one is complete different.

    What do you (as artists) think about the similarity to the IDW cover designs?

    Best,

    Chris

    She seems to have a bit of bulge in the crotch area. The composition is good. What is IDW?

    Rough Sea Games

    cout<mecha: "... a bit of bulge in the crotch area."... I bet she is just happy to see you. ... hehe. No seriously... thank you very much for your comment. I always appreciate good feedback like yours. IDW stands for "Idea and Design Works, LLC" which is publishing two other political comics about Obama and McCain as I have written at the top of my last post. Thx again!


    Now on to something really BIG!

    I'm heavily involved in the new browsergames company 'Rough Sea Games'!

    I'm creating art for a multitude of game elements. I can't get into details yet but it really is HUGE!

    Here is a first 'Sneak Peek' of an Environment image and some of the 'Making Of' steps:

    More Info soon.

    I hope you like it.

    Been a while since I checked in.

    These are awsome.

    I love the little 3D building.

    The Hillary one just bothers me, but that's why I like it too.

    Backgrounds are great too. Glad to see things seem to really be going well for you.

    hey chris. cool hillary cover! [GERMAN]svens colo passt sehr gut auf deine lines.[/GERMAN]

    What do you (as artists) think about the similarity to the IDW cover designs?
    frist impression: the idw-covers have a more cartoony style/line, while your cover has a more realistic feeling. i think the idw-covers give more impression of political satire than yours, because the lines remind me on editorial cartoons.
    i'm not talking about quality, hope you don't get me wrong.

    New MAYA Promo art...

    enthombed: Thank you very much! I really appreciate it!!! CU around!

    For today I have something special. Something every comic book artist/writer is dreaming of... his own creater owned story. Okay... it isn't the whole deal yet, but I will show you my final promo image for my creator owned three-part comic miniseries 'MAYA' I'm writing and drawing.
    I have posted some colored sketches and even a promo piece before in this thread. They all are ideas I had in mind for the grown up version of the main character as the story was in development.

    This image shows a young MAYA with her 'best friend'. Can't get into more details yet... but even without I really hope you dig the first (real) promo to the series:

    I am still working on the Ray Harryhausen series and will do my own right after the Ray Harryhausen mini is finished.

    3d house textured

    NO REPLIES regarding my creator owned comic? ... mhhhh... maybe I should overthink the whole comic!? ...

    For today I have the final 3D image of the house I showed in the thread before. It is from my 'Making Games' workshop. You can order the issue(s) here, if you want: Gamestar Making Games Magazine (in German!)

    Attachment 528890

    I'm still interested in what you guys think about my first (official) glimpse of MAYA?

    I am very tired right now...

    ... and I'm on my way to bed... but before I go I have to post a new one I did some days ago for a new workshop series about low-poly character modeling.

    Sorry for not updating so long. The explanation for my silence you can read soon on my site at http://www.chrisnoeth.com

    Here is the next one.

    Watch out for more soon! By following the 'Rough Stuff' sketch series maybe you will get an idea what the story is about ... there will be more hints with upcoming updates.

    hey man sorry I haven't dropped by in so long, really digging the updates I've missed.

    some crits: the colours in the enviro looks slightly too over-saturated...i think if you make say the shadows more muted it would work better

    the comic looks pretty sweet man, congrats! I think the glow around the title is a bit cheesy though...and oh yeah...her left boob (our left her right) looks kinda defying gravity there

    really digging the badass rabbit and the low poly house...keep up the great stuff!

    The Maya stuff looks pretty neat. The teddy Bear's expression is kind of unreadable, which makes it that much more interesting. What's going on inside that stuffed head? I agree with paperx about the boob though.

    As always your work is a lot of fun to look at. I love the rough sea games enviro.

    max1975: Thank you very much! It's funny you say this about the Bear's expression because it is an element of the story
