freakin good anatomy studies and you've renderd the spaceship very well and the tree, could you show us the brush you've used?
keep it comin'
@Enemy_Within- Hey man thanks for the encouraging words. Will do, I'll keep those studies and works coming.
@Ash Thanks! Man, it truly was one hell of a movie. I'll see you there man at Pixar indeed.
@thek Wow...thanks for the seriously cool and kind words.
Hygami Thanks man. Pretty basic brushes I actually used like the round brush and calligraphy brushes on the tree and spaceship. I could get some up though.
Okay, everything is set for my little trip to New York. Woop...can't wait...it's been too long.
Alright back to anatomy studies here. I need to finish up those last hand studies and get em' up.
Your work, and attitude are inspiring. I need to convince someone to go see WALL-E with me.
Oooh, interesting lime, man. I'm wondering, what sort of texture is that brush using? For the areas around the lime, I mean. Makes it kind of look like you're working on a canvas.
But those anatomy drawings are great, man! I love the red and blue action you've got going on. Almost reminds me of Yoji Shinkawa a bit.
@()nion Thanks man! Dude...that movie is is too awesome. Haha...I wouldn't convince them...I would drag them to the movie...hehe
@staticpen Hey there
Yeah the mixture of the red in blue really is fun. I love mixing the different colored inks. Yoji Shinkawa...I need to look him up. Not too familiar with that name.
*edit* *smacks himself in the head* oh yeah the insanely cool artist...that did metal gear solid...one of my favorite games...gah totally forgot his name.
The brush actually is a textured brush with actually a canvas texture in it. Anyway, here is the abr file. It really is a cool brush I liked making. It should work with cs2 and higher, Lower versions might not work.
here is the link to it- http://www.divshare.com/download/4881265-6f4
some examples of it...
In a nutshell the scale area marked in red increases and decreases the size. of the texture. I slide it back and forth to get different effects out of it.
Here's a little critter and something fun for today.

Your stuff is looking good trashy, you need to watch proportions on the anatmoy studies, and maybe punch up the darks on the Lime study(sometimes the image compression can fuck that up). I wish I had fun doing enviroments like you, just gotta get at it i guess.
Hybrid_75-Thanks man for coming by and for the suggestions. Environments in all honestly is some of my favorites to do...but I don't think I'm doing enough of them most of the time. Yeah, just jump into it is the best I can say. I think you would kick butt in them in no time
MeTaL-Mike- No prob man and thanks for swinging by here as well. I'll keep those studies coming.
I just wanted to do some more environments again. I'm really liking loosening up with these and sorta just letting shapes fall into place. Might bang out some more before the day is over with.
These were really done in PS? Gorgeous works. ^_^ I especially like your environments.
As for crits - It'd be nice to see some more anatomical studies. Which books are you using in order to reference the studies?
Great environments Trashy!
Keep at it!
Hey man, thanks for the kind words in my sb once again. I like where your work is heading, lots of texture in these last few pages. Also thanks for the canvas brush above, I'll try it out later this weekend!
@starzik- Thanks man! yep, all done in photoshop. I hear you on the anatomy. There will be a update this Sunday on it. As for studying anatomy I'm using a book called "strength Training Anatomy" right now by Frederic-Delavier.
@Quinn Simoes-Will do and thanks.
@Hyptosis- Hahaha...yeah leveling up just a little. Cheers Hyptosis and thanks for coming by.
@Vulgar- Sweet man, really happy you like those last ones.
@staticpen Thanks man! Hahaha...yeah I'm using quite a few things with those last couple of pieces. I honestly was playing around with new techniques. Mainly I'm sticking with the round and as you mentioned it's sorta a palette shape brush for the sharp edges. Ummm...also using the cloner tool in with the finger painting tool to get different effects.
@n1va Kudos man and no prob for the comments. Enjoy the brush
little updates here again. So I brought a crap load of art supplies from DickBlick.com recently. I'm getting back into some traditional painting
and watercolors and breaking out the markers while I'm at it and pens and pencils. I'm really excited and I got my first moleskine sketchbooks today in the mail. So more anatomy studies for tomorrow. I'm contemplating getting actual medical anatomy books and atlases. I need more material on bone structures I feel and I'm not seeing that in alot of the art based books. Observation I made couple days ago...I hardly have any portraits...not even drawings of them... So I need to hit that freaking hard. I need to break all safe zones.
Another environment today. This one is based loosely over one of the thumbnails I did in a previous page.
Here a acrylic painting I did on board...hahaha...no clue what the heck it is but it felt good using real brushes again.
Last is a concept for the"super stylized Challenge". I'm sorta going for the full comic book cover look. This one is gonna be interesting.
I love your whimsical yet gritty style. I had lots of fun browsing through your sb. I especialy like some your ealier landscapes I look forward to seeing updates!
I really like the trees.
Really nice artwork you have here. Keep it up! Ill be watching this thread.

I like that rocket ship on the last page, the style really reminds of someone like Shaun Tan.
Your trees and planet life are definitely nice, keep those up.
Keep doing what you're doing.
