    Storyboards? Very lively.

    I am glad that I can say that I don't drink, I don't smoke and I don't swear.

    Shit, I do drink and smoke.

    Hey, awesome lighting on these, very realistic. The girl in the top picture, her elbows are really high so I'd suggest paying close attention to anatomy, but other than that these look great. Hope to see more soon!

    Neat. Good lighting on the first one. Forearm on the girl closest to us is a bit long perhaps?

    Hey miljenko, nilaffle, Orbital and mrpank! Thanks for the replies! You have made me feel really welcome here, seems like a great environment so I'm gonna stick around. The past 2 were painting scenes of 'Lost' from my TV, trying to get the colours and lighting down so I guess I did a good job .

    Ive been in a slump for quite a while now and trying to get out of it, not much luck but I'm still trying to work through it. Heres another no sketch straight to throwing colours down speed paint, not pleased with it at all but I guess every sketchbook has a fair degree of crap in it so I wont leave it out.

    Cheers Razorb, I'm glad you like it.

    Having a bit of trouble at the moment, well in general actually. I'm OK when it comes to roughing out colour, but as soon as I try and polish something up it turns to crap.
    Take my latest pic, I liked the thumbnail so I enlarged and started to try and refine it. It was all fine while blocking in colour but as soon as I start to polish it, it goes all wrong (look at the nose to see what I mean) Any tips on making a piece look polished but maintain that special something I lose when I become too fussy?

    That ice walker is kinda fun.

    I noticed the cowboy's nose seems very refined and the rest of his face/outfit is much more blocked out. Was that intentional? Anyway, cools pics! Post more!

    Xbert- Thanks!
    Orbital - Haha I hate that ice walker. The cowboy started off as a rough thumb but I liked it so I started to try and refine it (the nose) but it was coming out awful because I blended the life out of it!
    TheGnoll - Thanks for checking mine out too. I have the same problem with real paint, blending it so much that it turns to mud. I have to really concentrate on not doing it.

    Here's a quick one for today

    I'm trying out some new brushes and techniques, it was great fun and a nice little result for a 10 min quickie. This little fella materialised out of a squiggle with my eyes shut, I didn't know what it was gonna be til I finished

    Cool start to a sketchbook! The ice environment and the wierd squirl/tapir thing on the grass are killer.

    Hey thanks Chromosome, your stuff is awesome so that's a big compliment for me.
    Messing about with some gouache today, here's the result. Used a photo for reference.

    Don't know if anyone is even looking in here at all but i'll keep putting stuff up anyway. Crappy day = crappy art, binned 99% of the stuff I did today but saved these 2 guys for some reason.

    You've got some nice stuff going here. Don't get discouraged. That gouache piece is looking pretty nice, especially considering how much of a pain in the ass gouache is. IMO anyway. Keep it up!

    Bryan - Hey thanks man, I won't get discouraged - this is still the most friendly forum I have found.

    Hey Chaos, glad you like some of the stuff in this thread
    Was messing with new brushes and techniques today, quite liked what I found so maybe my workflow will radically change quite soon. Here's a few quick things I did with my experimenting, I apologise for the unimaginative subject matter

    Worked for a couple of days on my CHOW entry, as well as a painting for a friend's birthday. I'll only put my chow for now, for fear (paranoia) of her somehow googling and finding her present early.
    Also been doing a lot of anatomy studies in an attempt to drag myself out of mediocrity, but I haven't scanned any...so I guess I could have waited for a few days before posting but what the hell - i'm at a loose end at the moment

    you've got sweet colors going, but your humanoids need more work when it comes to proportions (especially the skinny woman look way off on musculature)

    the fish, tadpoles and borat portrait are pieces that stands out to me the most, really good stuff, keep posting!

    Hello monstertree!
    Nice SB you have going on here, I'm digging the colour saturation in your recent works.

    This might be a stylistic thing, but i think you should play around more with hard and soft edges. A lot of your CGs have a "soft" look to them, even if (in my opinion) it doesn't quite suit the atmosphere. Hard or soft edges could make or break a painting.

    the borat portrait and the hairless cat are my favourites keep it up!

    As the pattern gets more intricate and subtle being swept along is no longer enough.
