I so loved this! ^
Great sketchbook overall - good rendering technique, but I'd like to see more/larger pieces!
Anyway about the animation, I've always been toying with exactly that kinda stuff, roughly painting frame by frame animation etc - could you elaborate a bit on how you worked? How much did you recycle, how long did it take, etc?
Lots of great work in here. Really strong painting skills.
But, am I the only one here that doesn't think this belongs in the IFF forum? This is a forum for 100% polished stuff, not sketches and WIP pieces. I mean, half of you are even referencing this as a "sketchbook".
I'm generally not one to nit pick these things, but this struck me as odd. Maybe there are extenuating circumstances that I am unaware of in regards to this thread/user.
Velocity: Glad you like them.
Jordy: It's not a sketchbook. What do you mean by larger pieces? About the animation, I'm not sure what you mean by "recycle" but I guess using one frame and copy it to create the next frame? I do it that way, duplicate it, move it then paint over it, erase some of it and so on. They were done using PS CS3, the tools are rudimentary and it crashed constantly. Took me about the whole afternoon and evening. But I make them only because it pleases me to make my characters move, I see them all in motion, but my tools to make animation are limited. I never learned to make animation.
Syle: I'm sorry but this is not a sketchbook. I post my finished pieces here and I only saw one person referencing this as sketchbook... If my finished work was not up to the finished quality of the place I think my thread would have been moved, it's had time to be removed. : /
Oh, right! I was mislead by the size of the thread probably, and the more sketchy qualities of some pieces (which is totally fine of course) Didn't see the forum when I posed! By larger pieces I meant just scope-wise; your rendering is really strong in portrait/character pieces, I'd love to see more landscape or large scope pieces!
By recycling I meant like say painting the body of the horse and moving the the layer, then repaitning only the legs- vs painting all the frames over almost entirely. But yeah I'd probably have done it the same way and for the same reasons, even if it takes all day making a painting move is pretty special . True about photoshop not really having decent support for it; shame really. I wonder if CS5 or 6 would be a bit more stable for it. In any case it looks good!
I was pleasantly surprised to hear you are originally from Belgium by the way! I currently live in Belgium and funnily enough I see myself moving to California in my lifetime.
It's been a while. I need to update this thread.
I have completed my studies and am currently looking for freelance work. (Illustration, concept)
My email is smirtouille[a]gmail.com
A couple traditional pencil work from this year.
Illustration work for Yuimen Aventure RPG.
Concepts for Tryaade. It's several years old but still dear to me.
For a personal comic project called Angels' Power started at the beginning of this year. That way I can teach myself on perspective, landscape, architecture, storytelling, composition, scriptwriting and have a good and constructive way to work on all my weaknesses. I still have a long way to go, but it's exciting.

I really dig the pencil drawings and concepts for Tryaade. There's something really solid in those forms, as is seen in some of your other traditional work. For this reason, I do prefer these solid forms to the more "wet digital style"; the wet digital pieces for some reason seem to lose a lot of the solidity of form, sense of mass in volume, and general tangibility. Looking forward to more of your solid-form style, because those pencil drawings are so simple and efficient in execution, yet imply so much tangibility with reflected light and line-weight, I feel I can run my fingers through the fur. The horse is intimidating with its still presence, because I can feel the weight. It'd be nutz to see your digital work catch up to your pencils!
Thank you Quite Garcia.
The pages I've posted are consecutive, they are 7 and 8. The pages 1,2,3,4,5,6 can be found here: http://ap.smirtouille.com/Webcomic/index.php
I'm not posting them here because I think they are of lesser quality. I'm learning as I go for this project.
Absolutely mind blowing! Your designs are inspiration for us... whether its demons, dragons, horses or portraits.
I love them all!
