    nice update. I like the self portrait...a head on a platter...what could be more generous for his b-day. i like the orc too, good armor, it might be cool to have a bit more of that warm light (from lower left) reflecting off the armor on the head and shoulder?

    Hi Jon,

    especially the orc's neck seems way too short, and you are cheating on the hands, looks like you cropped the painting for that pupose (why so much sky - do you want to put a title in there, for a book cover?). Hope that I don't sound too harsh. The rendering of the helmet is fantastic!

    Cashmere - You are absolutely right...the perspective is definitely off...thanks.

    nofish - I agree...yeah I just need better basic drawing skills in general. I need to do a lot more studies that's for sure.

    endregan - definitely update soon! Body is definitely compressed. Thanks man.

    AttackCat - Thanks man...yeah I guess your head would be your final gift hehe....good call about the reflective light...absolutely.

    jester - not too harsh hehe...I prefer that type of language hehe. I didn't crop the image but it does look stupid to have his hands be cut off in the painting. It was a really quick painting so I didn't think too much about those elements...but I should be thinking about those things even with quick sketches...thanks!



    Quick self portrait:

    endregan - Thanks hehe...you are right...my robot design is seriously in need of some new forms...I need to do some studies of some machinery. Thanks!

    mlessard - Thanks...yeah unfortunately there are some perspective issues with that...bleh...tough stuff that's for sure. I had fun doing the helmet. Thanks man.

    Still workin on this...trying to figure out how to paint all these trees...etc...

    I went to the zoo today to draw for like an hour or so...oh man...I am going to do this every weekend from now on because sheesh this was so difficult...tough to say the least. And these were the stuffed ones!

    Attachment 93774

    For this page I used a pen and I had no pre-drawing in pencil...I tried to do them very quickly...this shows how far my eye has to go before it is trained...utterly horrible.

    coolios sketches.

    never really sketched at the zoo

    its kinda sad sometimes seeing them caged, just depressed animals

    despite you saying theyre bad those line drawings were done pretty well!

    love that buffalo the most!

    the trees look really good. you use texture a lot, how do you accomplish that in painter? i had painter but i have a TWAIN error so i cant use it anymore

    endregan - Yeah it is sad sometimes...all those depressed animals hehe...the ones in south dakota seem real lively though. Yeah I get that texture in painter through custom brushes and custom paper textures.


    I am really frustrated...I want this painting to look as good as Jason's first painting found here:

    http://www.conceptart.org/artist/jason-manley/


    of course I can't make it look like that. I can't work on this piece of poo anymore:

    hey mlessard thanks...yeah wacoms are great...I have this one: http://www.wacom.com/productinfo/9x12.cfm but I don't have the platinum version. The 6 x 8 wacom is the size that foster and a bunch of other professionals use...I like the bigger one because it allows for more gestural strokes...to each his own though.

    w00t, ive read your first page and uh man, youre doing so damn well
    comparing your first drawings with the recent ones shows some effort others surely wont ever achieve.
    great work!
