    BludHund @ I was thinking the character lean forward so much his tie popped out...it would probably look more natural if it was tuck in though like you said. I agree the hands could have been plotted better. More hand studies for me, I'm still digging away at Hogarths when I can. For the valk colors, more soothing pastels speaks to me as "good." colors with red, black, burning reds, tend to be more aggressive or gloomly colors like blue, green, black. I have to come back to that valk later, it's not feeling right.
    #817: @ I guess the water sprite didn't care for the bbq...haha.
    ezekrialase@ Thanks I'm glad you like the animation.
    jedininjaman@ Yea I got to watch out for the over saturation on the last armor piece.
    Black Spot@ I think you are right, the hat would cast a darker shadow. Maybe one day chain mail shorts

    I like the pin up cartoon. I see the boobs got bigger from the first page of the character layouts. Amazing what a bit of shadow can do.

    Demo: Hi there
    Black Spot: Yea...haha shadows are magic that way.

    Succubus pin up done. Jed illustration updated, work in progress. Some thumbnails on a music based logo for, Jupiter Son. The client wanted to mix Greek mythology with a Jewish symbol of Jupiter. A challenging logo concept. So I went for unique blend both a traditional approach something more funky like Zeus DJ. When I heard the word "Son" I think of youth. When I heard the word Jupiter, I would associate it with planets or something celestial. So I combined the two concepts into a fresh logo. In these samples the mascot would either be fetus or alien with a head set. Something that was really out there, inspired by the cosmos. The mascot would be capsulated by the Jewish logo or standing on top of it like platform, followed the titled Jupiter Son. There might be some planetary texture or even a starfield.

    Push those thumbnails before you take it into the computer. You might be interested in http://www.visualrevolt.net/5-minute...design-videos/ There are quite a few there that start from the pencil sketch to completion.

    BlackSpot Those were neat videos and helpful. I never heard of the program Serif Draw. I have been using illustrator.

    Jewish Symbol was provided by the client to use in the sample roughs, and reference.

    Nice sketches. I like the suit design. Good aesthetic use of form language, line, texture.
    I would like to see more development of some of your sketches, even if its just a 'second
    pass' to push your sketch brain a little and practice fleshing out and refining initial ideas.

    On the Jupiter Son design:

    I like the use of the Hebrew symbols and the hexagram, but they are kind of getting over-
    powered by the fetus graphic. I like the fetus itself as well, but there are some other bold
    dark shapes and lines in there that I just don't get.

    Maybe strip it down to just the fetus and his headphones, maybe the dark shape underneath
    him, which kind of anchors him. Maybe also bump up the boldness in the circle/hexagram, symbols.

    Remember that a logo should be immediately and unequivocally clear and recognizable at
    about the size of a postage stamp a couple meters away.

    Hehe, unless its purely for web, which of course always change the rules of design a little bit.

    Keep it up man!

    BludHund/Black Spot I think you guys are right I could have refined it more during the sketch stage. I kind wish I could stick to maybe 2 elements, having a more focus theme rather than too many ideas. This logo was for a band for four people. Everybody wanted to have their say. The fetus portion could have been tighten up a bit more though.

    Another pin up.

    These pin-ups are getting really good.

    Also logos need to be recognizable when photo copied or faxed. So many lose their impact that way.

    Speed paint of some landscape. Rough animation in progress. I have been fooling around in flash. Drawing in that program is much different than illustrator vectors, I'm still getting use to it.

    I wonder how you'd get on with DrawPlus. Funny how vector programs are all slightly different. I like the girl with the crocs and the cat. Not sure the animation is working that well yet.

    Black Spot mmm...That DrawPlus program has vectors for flash animation, edits like photoshop, a mix of paint brushes like painter. It seems to have a bit of everything. My hand drawn animation are a bit choppy. I'm pampered tweening in flash or armatures.

    Alex Eh Thank you for the 5 stars, that's always enjoying.

    Here is the finished rough cat animation and sketch for another illustration.

    I like the clean style of your pinups. If you'll make any more an interesting thing would be push it to a fully rendered painting, but still keeping the big clean shapes.

    If it's still current to give any feedback on that jupiter son logo I think one with no gradients is the way to go. I like the fetus symbol but the jewish star feels out of place, more pasted in rather than integrated. Full black no.1 on pic 2 is my favourite otherwise. Sorry if I missed any requirements you may have written somewhere. Just a bigger fetus symbol along with the text would look better to me anyway.
    Keep up the good work!

    Animation looks a lot better. I've never explored all the functions of DrawPlus as yet. I know some people who can do great stuff with it.

    Nice start to the illustration - give her some sexy hips and not such a tiny waist.

    I have been buried in work a bit.

    jon n I'm glad you like the pin ups.
    AimBiZ I like that suggestion. I'll try to work in flat shapes and render the character. I'll try to experiment with that. For the logo I would be great to explore cleaner compositions. I think you are right too many things going on.
    Black Spot Mmm I yea I think you are right I should just focus on one part of anatomy like the waist. Having more generous hips would be nice. I did a quick sketch of lady with more meat over all. Instead of just skin and bones.

    I took AimBiZ's suggestion. I keep the basic shapes and I placed slightly more rendering and brush strokes for the animal illustrations.

    Last character sheet looks pretty awesome. Strong drawing and an interesting/exciting design.

    Keep pushing your drawing to be tighter and more dimensional. Put those lines down like you mean it
    Also don't forget to work on your naturalistic proportions. I just realized...do you do any figure studies from life/ref?

    Thanks. I have been trying to render tighter in pencil and rely less on photoshop for characters. I use to go city college for some figure drawing workshop they have once in a blue moon during the spring, they have been cutting back. It would be nice to find something local to help push more dramatic poses/studies.

    Hey PK, long time no see.
    Been doing some good work. I like the animal illustrations.
    The piece of the woman on the Rolls Royce is nice. I think her knee is a tad too pointy, though.

    Just to echo what Bludhund mentioned about figure studies. It would be nice to see a bit more of that stuff, and other studies in general. Still life, photos, Plein air, etc.
    Never forget the importance of continued study.

    Lookin' good. Hehe, insects: Nature's Lego.

    On figure drawing: You might also get some books of art models, there is a series called
    'Art Models' (EG Art Models 5 is the latest book) that are superb. They take well-lit photos
    in a 360 degree arc, so you can 'rotate' the figure. Absolutely invaluable for understand
    the forms. Highly recommended, even if you are already doing live sessions.

    AimBiZ You got it!
    HunterKiller_ I probably went too pointed, it can poke someone's eye out I could have tapered it a bit more gently.
    I'm not a fan of landscape painting but I gave it go, and sketched from a Chinese restaurant.
    BludHund That looks like a helpful photo reference book, it might come in handy. Thanks
