Kicek: Yeah more cars on the way in a couple of weeks
Dan Valkar: Still have to finish that one, right now it hangs on the wall in the classroom Thanks for stopping by.
Did some more work today. First one is a sort of WIP for the Art Crusade, the topic is: 'Dark Abominations - Battle at the Horrors'. Have to come up with a good setting and composition for the characters.
The Garble Swan can be found in the marshes and swamps of the second moon of the Arghlgl system. As it has got rid of its direct competitors in the food chain with its hideous appearance and smell, as well as having scared any carnivor that hunted it -the famous restaurant critic Le Gaston once descibed its meat as a combination of blubber and string, after which it dissappeared off the menu in the entire galaxy- the species is now tumbling down the Darwin ladder of evolution out of sheer boredom. The sound it produces, originating from air canals surrounding the cavity in its chest (the wings fell off from uselessness), sounds rather retarded and weak. Mating calls are often only answered out of pity by the other sex. The species seems ready to die out pretty quickly.
Hehe, LOL too You have writing skills besides drawing skills.
Your landscape speed paintings are pretty good, and some of
your sketches are very lively. I'll come back often to write
more detailed comments and critiques.
The next three images I made right after the workshop. Inspired by a method Koshime showed us, where you take one image, flip/twist/transform/overlay it madly until you get a new image you can work with. I tried it on his tablet pc at the workshop and failed misserably, but this bunch worked out pretty well I think.
Started out with an old speedpaint I did of a Cromwell:
Great to meet you and hang out at the sketchmeet
Your ID work is crazy to see in real life. For some reason hand drawn pen never gives you a full effect when scanned and displayed on a monitor. It looks really juicy in real life That process koshime was talking about applies to all things, not just ID. It's really useful for me, because it allows me to think more about shapes, and less about wanting to render
*cough* I found this on my laptop, and thought you would probably want it [don't worry I did the same thing to Jens with something he 'forgot' hehehe] Attachment 343118
