    AustenFM - Thanks buddy! Maybe the watercolour pencils won't ultimately be of real interest to you to use, but if they are... Why wait? *prods

    Sean McMurchy - Thank you!

    Added a bit of photoshopped colour to this guy.

    Just updating myself on your work, those shark head variations are wonderful. I love the tiny forms you build around the eyes. And the spiny tongue one, genius. I want to eat a mango with that tongue.

    man i didn't realize just how much i missed your stuff. the flatheaded crocodile-thingy is probably my favourite, it looks like it could waltz right off the page.

    Thanks guys! GF is coming back from airport in a minute and I gotta clean up quick, so I'll comment back later.

    Something a bit more with that same little doodle. Dunno if this'll go any further, but I'll call it a W.I.P. anyways.

    Mouth watering watercolours!

    If I'd comment on one thing I'd say that in some of the pieces a little more contrast wouldn't hurt. However, I'm aware that it can be quite tricky with water-based mediums. A problem I have to solve myself. I think that due to a 1-2 years of a lot watercolour paintings I even transferred watered down colour palettes to other mediums. Not that there is a problem with that in itself. But it's a good thing to master the full range. And now I'm obviously talking more about myself.

    Great work. Flipping through this thread makes me want to do some creatures. The stuff in here is truly unique and awesome. I especially love the muscle/anatomy exploration on this page: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1321574436

    Keep it up! thanks for posting.

    I like that some of your work starts of reminding me of stuff I've seen - talking color, technique or style, something that feels familiar - but then blasts off in a totally unique direction with the subject matter. Not sure if this describes it right but I guess if you create a familiar setting/color/mood but then put something unexpected in that space it makes the piece more powerful. Seriously brilliant work.

    AndreySimeonov - Thank you - glad you like!

    MonkeYoakum - Haha -- Yes, mango would be aptly juicy for those teeth... Or some large carcass. Glad you appreciate the little things that happen around the eyes -- subtle stuff like that can really change the look of a creature, I think.

    focus_light - Thanks, glad you like!

    Carnifex - Sorry I was gone so long, but anyways danke and here're a few more things.

    GEB - Haha -- Thanx!

    kischi - Thx! Wow those shark-type heads are really getting a lot of mileage. Neat. Glad you like some of the recents as well!

    NickyBeats - Thank you! I'm glad my watercolour pencil stuff is being so well-received... I hesitate to post some of this stuff cuz I know it's just monochromatic exploratory, but I'm still lovin' these things, myself.

    GoldenSerpent - Merci! Glad you dig my organic stuff, and I'm always happy to inspire!

    Rob Powell and Daulet-art - Thanks, guys!

    Greip - Thank you so much! I appreciate your comment. I do agree with you about the contrast, and I know it's made it more difficult for some to really absorb some of my images. Since these have just been studies where my biggest concerns were exploring description of muscular forms and becoming more familiar with using a bristled brush (as opposed to an airbrush) I haven't been too worried about it... However, it's true that I'm pleased with how they're progressing and I do sortuv want to share, so now I'm attempting to find some other colours that have stronger contrast whilst still handling and inspiring similar forms and detail as the lighter colours that I've been using this far. The more-brownish colour in this current posting is DERWENT "Russet", and I think it might do the trick -- see whatchya think...

    ArtZealot - Thanks! I'm glad to hear that someone else likes that coffee table page.

    bupaje - Thanks! I'm glad that that's how you're experiencing some of my stuff, because I'm really always trying to find something different and interesting in my creatures etc., whilst also attempting to add some tangibility to them that can help us connect with them. There're too many great designs in film and game that don't impact us as they could because they rely on clich้d situations or styles that we never experience in real life.

    Thanks again everybody, your comments are stellar!

    Here're a coupluv watercolour-pencil pages that I did over the past coupluv days, approx. actual size. The first one is basically me pushing forward and trying to practice a bit of landscapery, as well as including a subject or two interacting in that environment. The second pic (of the pot-bellied figure) is basically a "before" drawing... I'll post it again after I've gone back into it with a tiny flat shader brush and a bit of water. I've got some misgivings about its upper torso, so I'll be doing whatever I can to tighten the larger form of that area up. Might not succeed, but I'll give it a shot. It's actually the same colour pencil as the small pics just above it, so you can see how much adding water changes things.

    Cheers, guys!

    Absolutely stunning! The anatomy on your characters is terrific, particularly all the nooks and crannies in post #1207! The transition from water-colour to PS is seamless. I'm going to stop by when I've got a little more time to enjoy all of your wonderful work.

    Your sketches and watercolors are hella sexy! Love to look through your pages

    The shark heads are really nice - scary to look at - and you have so much detail too! I think that they present really well because the sketches are so clean! Wow - that is an accomplishment in itself, I never use graphite pencils anymore because when I do my sketchbook looks like it was dry humped by a fat man inside a chimney shoot (aka dirty dirty) Anyway thanks for sharing these

    Hiya,

    Really brilliant werk up in here. Seriously inspiring.

    I was fascinated by yer sketchbook pages in #1142 and decided to read a bit in that post.

    Your "additive" sketchbook is a great idea...and it looks like I've got a lotta company on that too.

    Anywho...yer creatures and ideas are really creative. Thanks for posting!

    Wow, truly beautiful and excellent work. I love all of it. I agree with the Hon. NickyBeats about that page of "anatomy studies." Especially because I know in the past I have repeatedly tried and failed to draw similar distortions. Very inspiring.

    Stunning work Mr Hand! feels like giger 2.0.

    If they ever asked you, would you consider doing an interview for the sidebar nation guys? That is one interview I would love to listen too.

    Also please make a book akin to rakuga king, I would buy that 50 times over.

    Ps. Sometimes I think you exaggerate the highlights, but it might be a personal preference.
    Anyways, I guess I HAVE to *sigh* keep track of this sketchbook more often eh?!

    I'll respond to people shortly, but atm I just wanted to quickly throw up a few studies that I've done over the past few days...

    For months I've wanted to study macro photos of bugs and work toward a goal of photo-realistic weirdness inspired by that study, and I'm finally beginning on it.

    I chose to start with what I regard as one of the more technically demanding aspects of bugs, their compound eyes. Although I haven't really developed a photo-real style, and know I've got tons to learn yet, I'm less daunted by all the other biological weirdness than I was by the eyes with all their little facets. My goal with these exercises was to create eyes that'd be so believable that they could be laid right on top of actual photos and work.

    To be clear, the areas around the compound eyes are photos pulled from wwwherever -- not mine. The bits that are mine are the compound eyes themselves, which I've created entirely out of raw photoshoppery.

    I'm pretty pleased with what I've been able to accomplish thus far, so here are the highlights of it -- see whatchya think:
