kungfoowiz: Haha yeah I know about locking transparency, it was just a quick sketch though so I did it all on one layer.

What was it again?(no)
some speedpaints from imagination. originally intended to be grayscale but i threw some overlay colors on top.
EDIT: Quick update
photo study that defeated me I tried putting a bit more time into it than usual but its still ehh.
and then applying the study from imagination, using a similar color scheme and subject matter:

Wow, your studies are looking terrific! It would be awesome if you'd do some more stuff from imagination; you have a good foundation for that.

i like these... keep those studies going!
Elks are orange
Elks can fly
bogan, elkishly, adriannagorski: thanks!
jeremy: woo inception status.
So got some critiques from Art Center admissions people. They said that a lot of my stuff is looking flat and that I should focus on more variety in my designs before going into the final. Goood stuff.
I'm going to try to avoid drawing from photos even more now.
1.5 hour timed study:
one of the final character designs i did for the art center thing:
The studies look awesome, really digging that blue enviro you've got going, take it further!
Yeah, the still lifes look good. Keep them up. Good luck.

thanks to everyone! I don't think I'll be doing anything with those though, they were just quick sketches
Hm so took a bit of a break from CA because it felt like I was trying to just do stuff to impress people. Then after awhile I kept procrastinating an update. But I'm back! So wooo heres some old junk. I'll probably upload some of the pencils from the last weeks later.
photo study, i need to work on buildings/manmade stuff for environments..
ribs/abdominal stuff from the last couple days
i think im doing it wrong
composition practice from imagination:
some hot imagination personal feel good stuff!
and i know this looks just like but i cant. augh.
need to get my shit together and stop being lazy.
quick-ish photo study
i've been doing these thumbs/sketches for the past few days but all of them had been turning out too shameful for me to post. here's some that are slightly better from today (from imagination):
Does anyone have any tutorial links for rendering matte metal (like for mechs)? Or any good mech/car tutorials.
Hey I like your final pieces in #316 & #321. You've made great progress. One small critique, try to use a bit more color in your imaginative sketches. They really make some of your other pieces pop. Keep it up!
hi, i am really interested with ur work and progress..
i wanna ask if you really did all this with the wacom bamboo?? because i want to buy the wacom bamboo create but not sure if its suitable for my needs:
i want to use it to draw game characters mainly 2D and also 2D levels.. also i am interested to draw the oil paining style pictures like urs they are amazing i immediately have this relaxing feeling when i look at them ..
so i need to know if its worth the price and if i will have big difference using it (even if i wont be using it all the time only when i need to)? or if a mouse will be enough for me?
hope u can help me with my decision cuz i am new to the art world and i am looking for tools to make it easier for me to create 2D games and enjoy the process of creating them...
sullivan west: thanks a lot!
this time for realzies
studies for the next bloodsport
I've been meaning to join in but keep wimping out and making excuses. So now I'm starting early. If you haven't heard of it already: http://crimsonbloodsports.blogspot.com/
and my current comp sketch haha:
i'll be updating real soon and often!
this is a reaaaly good thing, and you should do it a lot more. mainly the straight black and white, pump out 10s of 100s of those. one after the other, boom, boom, boom.
when you feel drained, review over them all and pick some of them that you like and take them to finish if you feel like it.
this is really nice too, like, a lot nice man.
also, use more reference with your characters, just because you are drawing it from imagination, doesn't mean you can't refer to photos or life, just because you refer to something doens't mean its not from imagination, it makes it more legit.
