Hey hows everyone doing? Happy Easter to all you guys out there who celebrate it...or not. So couple updates here, first is a robot I did for a school assignment. you might have noticed this was a sketch on another page awhile. Attachment 330893
Okay that now brings me to idw65. You know...I gotta say my linework digitally has stunk awhile now. I'm studying to clean it up and make it nicer. I think I got really good results by exactly doing just that in this. That and I officially loooove painter now. The oil impasto brushes are so freaking awesome!!! Anyway this is going to be the way I'm going to approach more of my pieces now. I'm pretty excited actually. Oh hey, I need to hit the anatomy again...hehe..........I know I keep freaking saying that...I sound like a answering machine sometimes :d Attachment 330895 Attachment 330896

my gosh ive always loved that look using the square shaped brushes yet I dont know why...something about it is very pleasing and keeps your eye moving?
The twisted face painting is looking interesting, though I enjoyed some of the more simple elements in this one more http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1205903692
the hard line seperating the 2 background textures feels better compositionally to me flipped with him on the right as well. Maybe pop out a focal point even more.
The figures marked 'longer studies' in post #99 are ok, but I feel that they majorly lack the construction stages which is causing proportional problems. you may have been focusing simply on the poses but try and get everything else attention as well. laters!
wahoooo....finally back here again. I got a couple more weeks left and a other semester of college is in the books. I'm honestly getting tired of this semester so it's good thats it's almost over. Good news is itleast I got a sketchgroup finally started at my campus. We are starting to meet every Friday so it's pretty cool.
anyway...I missed this place!
Jakers Man I fall for those square brushes constantly.
It's always interesting flipping the pieces horizontally...it's crazy how much it changes sometimes. You know after looking at the piece more the noise bothers me also. It does need something more to it.
I hear you on those 99 studies...their pretty much lifeless in all respects. It was more or less a study in lines. I really did skimp out on the construction bits. I think I really have been going after anatomy the wrong way.......gah...over complicating sh#t.
Alright, some quick little studies of guns after watching El Coro's dvd on gun concepting. Freaking amazing Video. Coro...you the man!
Hahaha...I should study guns more. Some of these...just...technically wouldn't work Attachment 352530
That brings me to a graffiti piece I worked with a good friend at college. Not quite done yet...still need to fade out those lines alittle. Honestly I'm getting pretty inspired by graffiti work lately. Stuff is amazing and I picked up a book called "graffiti World". Highly recommend this book to anyone.

Last but not least is a "Center for the arts" Poster I did at Pima West college.
It's for the play "1000 Cranes". It's part of a competition I was in last year too. Don't know if this is the one that will be used but it was pretty fun working on it. Waaaaaay totally different my other works. Got to experiment tons with this one and different styles. Attachment 352538 Attachment 352539 Attachment 352540
Alright finally got stuff out of the way. I'm going to start updating here every Saturday. I just got done getting some good books on anatomy and perspective...can't believe it but I didn't have any of those kinds of books. Dunno...I'm actually learning that having the materials right in my hands is far better then reading stuff on the computer screen it seems. Anyway..."Strength Training Anatomy"...oh my god that book is amazing!!! Can't wait to stuff diving into this.
I think in terms of anatomy I just need to hit it harder. I'm going to do a study every night before I go sleep. I've been far too sporadic. I need to do this routinely and stay on top of it with all my other works. I'm starting this tonight!
@Sorknes- Hi there
Those anatomy are certainly lacking sometimes...if not often. Haha...man I get too caught up with other things. I'm going to be getting rid of that habit this summer. Thank you for coming by.
@xinleh- Thanks man for the comments. I hear you on those lines. Gotta feel the shape and force of the figure.
Alright some posting here.
Pen and ink pieces. I was messing with some thumbnails and made a more finished piece off of them. I love my microns
This was part of a school project and contest at my college. It was for a bicycling event held every year in Tucson. Dunno if a winner has been announced. Pretty fun working on this though. Gah...I did that one thigh too big though...eek. Think the child actually came out alright.
Last but not least some down to basics. Waaaay more of these to come and cones and cubes. I feel good though...resisted the temptation on the elliptical marquee tool this time. Still one side slightly off. I will master the circle!!!!
@GRMC -Will do man! Thanks for stopping by @flamable-I'll never let down...never give up...never surrender!!!
...hehe..I think I went overboard there lol. Thanks for coming by my corner. Glad you like the plant. I'll keep pushing onward.
Hogarth studies from drawing dynamic hands.
-Just took some notes also. Couple I went too fast into. I need to lay down more guidelines as well when working on the alignment of the joints and fingers. I'm gonna hit this book pretty hard Sunday and Monday. Attachment 386489
Hey man! Thanks for dropping by. I thought I'd have a look at your thread, and I'm really glad I did. I gotta say, I am FEELING you hatching with the pen and ink. I love that. It's my favorite way to use an pen.
Also, your bicycle and asian cloudy lady posters are wicked rad. I really love that sort of uh... loose, almost impressionistic brush play you've got going there. Super color selection, too.
And yeah, keep rocking the Hogarth books. He's a genius.
All in all, you've made a subscriber out of me! Keep it up!
