    Wow, I really like the texture you achieved with the gnome, especially the background.

    Using custom brushes to create textured effects with PS is my biggest headache to figure out. I am really impressed with what you did; any chance you could post the brush/maybe even a quick tut to help out some of your admirers?

    Should we ever meet (stranger things have happened) I promise to buy you a bagel in return

    Hey Bones,

    Since you asked so nicely ;-)
    I've attached the brushes I used, they're nothing hugely special mind!
    If you stick them in your \Adobe Photoshop CS2\Presets\Brushes folder they should appear in your preset list (called Scatter Brushes).

    My basic method is:
    On a white background scribble on rough black brush marks.
    Draw a marquee box around it - Edit - Define Brush Preset.
    I then play about with Scattering and tend to set the Opacity Jitter to be depenent on Pen Pressure.
    I sometimes stick some Texture on it too, just to break it up a bit.

    I think that makes sense, feel free to PM me if you've got any questions.

    A quick environment sketch I did, playing with textures and brushes. I really need to do more of these, and use more reference!

    A lunchtime doodle, struggling with values a little. Good excuse to draw tentacles though :-)

    I really like your sketches. All of them are very imaginative and well done, I really like your use of exaggerated facial features and such. My favorite is the fat guy with the fish tank(?) on him, really good stuff. Hope to see more soon!

    A few DSG doodles - I'm going to try to take part in DSG more often! Feels like really good practice, getting me to draw things I haven't attempted before.

    Some goood stuff here, some of your work looks like they were drawn by a drunken person. Not all the b&w digi of the barbarian is neat, looks the quality. Chin up and pen down...

    I agree man, we want an update!!! Come on, I saw you sketching at the Hurricane while everyone was enjoying the superb FAT TIRE beer hahaha. It was great meeting you man, hopefully seeing more art from you. Since you mentioned you do some 3d works, it will be nice to see some of those.
