I looked know for the first time in this sketchbook and I'm really impressed! I love it how you work on the anatomy and the shapes of creatures. And your studies about values are very interesting too
Your updates always make me so happy :'(...i'm liking the fat dragon, cant wait to see it finished! cheers dude!
Ludic - Thanks man, I'm going for all 3, this weeks COW is about 3 concepts of the same creature. Cheers!
dan liimatta - Hey! your sb blew my mind! awesome stuff man thank you for your kind words! kul att du är svensk också! jobbar du i Amsterdam?
p.s sorry about the pages see you around!
Lord Dubu - glad you like it!
Conte - Thanks you!
Metal Fingers - Haha yeah.. no worries man, did you really think I'd just slap on different colours on them and call them different designs? did you?! huh? whats that? hmm? haha nah im kidding. Check this concepts out
Enthombed - yeah I'm aiming to finish! thanks
Sevarenge - Get to da chopppah! You will see it finished my friend!
Valyavande - Thanks! glad you found it interesting
Shard - Cheers!
Jansi - What process? haha jokes, thank you!
Lang Oulk - don't cry.. :'( thanks! drop by later and I'll have the fattie finished!
Woa! Thanks so much for all the feedback! makes me happy
concepts nearly done, working on the Atlantis one. The earlier concept sheet was a colour test, planned on bringing them further. Doing all those thumbs earlier really helped me with these.. it was fun picking all the different cool parts and add them to the designs.
I hope these will read well with their environment once I render them in color. I think I nailed all 3 of them pretty well.
Updates later! cheers!
Loving the shaggy fur on the Ice creature, and I ntice the patterning on the Atlantis creature, I think they would look really good on the creatures large throat as well.
Very inspirational to see your work dude. Keep it coming!!
Rob Powell - Thanks for the feedback man! added some patterning to the Atlantis concept
arh, didn't have time to add colour on these. Once I started the lack of rendering in many areas became really obvious. Another COW where I fail to finish.. I need to re-think a bit here. For now though, COW will have to wait (unless the topic is really epic) .. got a lot of personal stuff to do.
Anyway, here are the concepts and a colour wip.
Lovely, robust feeling to the creatures you've made for COW. They don't look like they're going to fall apart. They look as though they would function. I know that most COW are about fantasy settings but believe can only be suspended so far.
lookin goooood! any plans to continue these? theyd make great portfolio pieces; plus theyre just straight up cool
and keep up those studies man, theyre doing you good already. plus if you do, ill take full advantage and try to catch up >:3 muahahaha lotsa love mate
Noticed many things while I was working -
- The face is EXTREMELY sensitive to temperature changes in colour and change of value.
- the slightest change in the key shapes (Nose, lips, eyes) have a radical impact on the face.
- The girl had a cool red castshadow, leaning towards purple hues in relation to the rest of her face
-There was a warm red hue in the shadowplanes facing her skin (very subtle bouncelight from the skin I guess)
ur a hard working artist.. and ur work is changing from page one to the last page.. ur experiancing with every medium, technique and concept... something im still lacking... this is an inspiring SB
i love to do everything and learn everything... i hate to be cornered in one place.. i believe u can be anything u want... Your mind is limitless... check out my sketchbook ... u will find a bit of everything
Man Defiled, you're killing it this round. Those are badass. I can't wait to see the finals, with a touch of color.
One crit though, the leg in the foreground looks a bit awkward, not sure if it's the lighting or the shape that's doing it. Actually, I think it's the black rocklike protrusions that make it look like its elbow is coming toward the viewer. Seems like if you put hilights on the back side of that rock, it would fix that.
looks good - will be interesting to see how you solve the chest and all those spiked/claws/teeth ~ have fun with it
& jobbade i Amsterdam - tillbaka i Sverige nu o är arbetssökande för tillfället -söker iof inte speciellt hårt än

Hey man! Great work on the COW, it's cool to see you progress through alll of the design stages. Personally I like the warm grey monotone versions more than the color one, but as you said it's still WIP so I'd imagine things would change. Keep going strong man!
You are looking really cool bro
Oh man that piece is turning out sweet! I liked the one with the fur, but that's just me , either was it turned out really great. Grats on the COW win too! Well, keep up the great work like always man, can't wait to see what you come up with next!
It`s really interesting to see the process of your last creature character!
Your monsters are fuckin ridiculous! keep it up
Talent and Creativity are yours to use and keep
