Awesome! Glad you're back man!! Used to stalk this thread like crazy back in 08 and on! s
Welcome back !
Can't wait to see your updates, tutorials and stuff !!!!
wow! i was preparing to lash out at someone for bumping this thread for no reason, but your really back!! yaaaa!!! psyched dude! cant wait to see the updates!
Holy shit you're back! Welcome back Cole, good to see you looking forward to see what you'll be bringing to the table. That latest one from WoW is just mindblowing. Looking forward to the mentioned tutorials and to hear your every-day thoughts about art and life in general! hope to see more updates man!
Thanks everyone! Yeah, good to be back!
Here is the process I took for the mogu piece.
Started with some rough line work..really rough. Then a color study, just defining the big color hits of the painting. Then I blocked in those colors pretty flat, with more of a concentration on the value I wanted there. And then turning the form and thinking about the lighting after that. I might be buying a cintiq soon hopefully, and then I will start streaming painting....(and some league of legends probably, cause i have become addicted to that game) so anyone can see my process and all that jazz.
Anyway, thanks for all the positive energy guys, and hope to help out anyone I can, while getting better at art myself.
Wow, welcome back! I found your cole's hole blog a while back, but what ever happened to topdollarpawn? It seemed like you disappeared from the internet for a long time. Anyway, I love your poop.

Did a little more work on this sketch. starting to detail out some things and such, i dont know what the deal is with it, but its fun to practice boobs and armor.
Anyway, thanks for the kind words, and yeah, im working on getting a cintiq right now, and hopefully streaming within a couple of months.
Thedirty- lol, we're all newbs man. dont feel discouraged man. anyone can do art, as long as they put their mind to it, and time.
Here is a sketch I did today of that asian monkey king guy. I got super inspired after seeing this guy on cg hub (http://yangqi917.cghub.com/)
Great stuff, please check out his amazing concepts.
Anyway, here's some process and shit, looking to be finishing this up sometime this week when I have the time.
aww sweet! i love the whole monkey king mythos. if you get the chance, try to find a manga called "Journey to the West" by Katsuya Terada. he wrote, penciled, and painted every single panel, and it is glorious. your version is awesome too man! i cant wait until i can bang out stuff like this in a day. . . one day. . . but keep posting stuff dude! really im such a fan of your work!
