OH MAI KURISUTINA~~
So many nice drawings and hot chicks!!!!!!
Now do some more, assistanto. *A*!!!
Oh you Chris, oh you.
Freaking amazing stuff, you really have improved a lot and I love your pictures. Looks great and the studies are also fierce.
Keep it up man, you're doing a really good job here.
Love that chick on 415. Her face is especially awesome. And hot...
Oh man this SB is gorrgeeoouuss, so much to look at! Studies and full blown illustrations. It's fantastic. Love your colors and paint techniques. But I think my favorite has to be the fact that your work seems to have a lot of life in it. There's a lot of artists who develop technical proficiency but the spark isn't there and its always a shame.
great work, keeping an eye out for this sb
Mila - No probs :>
MeteorCat - Thanks! Glad you like it!
Sapphirelullaby - Hey, thanks
Funny you'd say that. I have the complete opposite view on my work!
I think its really bland and dull but I've got the technical skills down fairly well.
I really struggle with being inspired nowadays, kind of a information overload due to the internet. See so many versions of a knight or a dragon that by the time you're drawing one you're so bored of the subject and all you can think is "Seen it before, snore".
Gotta disconnect more often :I
good sketchbook dude ! I quite like your stuff, but something is a bit wrong on your illustrations, i feel that you don't think about the illustration as a whole, but more into different things, which is creating a lack of " harmony " in the general composition. I suggest you to study "creative illustration" from loomis, which will really help you to improve your illustrations . Keep it up dude !
Meterocat - I know, I've seen several posts about it and I've felt like it for the past 2-3years. It really is a matter of information overload. Gotta disconnect and isolate yourself once in a while.
kikindaface - I'll make sure to re-read it sometime, my list of books to read is growing rapidly.
Merē.Jorg - Thanks
I often dream of riding down a mountain.
Guess I haven't posted these.
Some sketches from my a5 and a4 sketchbooks.
Don't have a scanner anymore so the pics will have to do.
Half from reference, half from imagination. Just poses and tits and Asians.
Because I can, so I will. And there you have it, folks!
Oh, also this thing that I don't like anymore.
dude! same shit!! i have been going through that info overload now for the last month! its driving me nuts!!!! i plan to just turn off my internet tomorrow for a space of time in order to actually get work done.. i remember we had a power outage a while back, and i did this awesome page of marker sketches by fucking candlelight... something i never would have finished had i been able to go online and browse forums all day. . . i think i just need to get away and actually spend time developing my own ideas rather than doing what you said, looking for inspiration in specific areas such as sci fi, and then whenever i paint something i trash it after a few attempts because it feels like such a damn copy it drives me nuts! haha sorry to vent but i really need to correct this... hope you were able to get it done! keep it up man! your stuff gets better and better!
I find that by not signing onto any instant messenger service like skype or msn helps me focus. But also not even checking your email.
Gotta get away from the computer, go draw in the park just to try and empty your mind of all this visual noise.
So I don't have a lot for you today either I'm afraid. But do not fret. I have a story to share!
This is the story of a Swede, lost in the land of Europa doing outsourced work from an American company on a Warcraft product...
Many moons ago, the Swede went into an agreement to work on his biggest project yet.
He finished his work and all is well. Payday comes and leaves, but pay was not received. In the midst of an international move none the less! 3months and a bank loan later the pay for work was nowhere in sight. Disheartened by such events the Swede decides to take matters into his own hands and threaten to sue the Americans, the pay was then scheduled and approved.
Moral of the story? Fuck you. Pay me. http://fstoppers.com/fck-you-pay-me-...e-professional
Don't be afraid to go into a lawsuit, you can demand the company pay for all legal costs and interest for every day the payment has been delayed. Of course, avoiding a lawsuit is the best option, imo. Waiting three months for a payment however, I have to say I've been too generous. Don't let clients screw you around, no matter what excuses they have, it's their responsibility to pay you. They should be the ones forced to take a loan if money is not available, not you.
Here are some studies on my problem areas at the moment.
Eye in 3/4 view.
How the shoulder connects to the neck.
Will you let me post now? eh ConceptArt? eh?
So I did this Daft Punk fanart because I needed a break from work and I hadn't posted anything in a while. I only spent 4hours on it so it's rough.
I finally got paid for my Warcraft work, huzzah! Then Paypal locked my account and demand I show them proof of ID and location! Even though 4months ago I asked them if this would happen and they said "NO, EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE YES YES". Cuntbuckets
Anyway, here. Have some art.
Also, please upvote this on reddit :>

Booo! Fuck negative people that are trying to screw you over. Good for you that you stepped up and showed those silly bitches you were in your right to claim what you deserved.
Going to watch that video later when I get home from work. I really like the daftpunk fanart. Especially the way you captured his helmet. They have some cool trademark helmets for sure.
i dont know what reddit is but the link was broken, just got a reddit page error...
but this is awesome man! love the shiney helmut! very nice rendering for only 4 hrs.
EDIT - woops didnt realise i needed to make an acct first... sorry but i dont have one
