Epic sketchbook man! Im subbed!
muli. Thanks, though I was just followingwhat Sargent was doing with hes edges.
Bryce: Thanks for looking trough! glad you liked it.
Eraiasu: Cheers ma!, Apreciate it.
So, I have been playing with this idea in my head of starting to livestream some of my painting sessions. Would that be cool? Is anyone out there interested seeing me painting live? Let me know.
If you don't feel like commenting just like this post if you feel like you would like to see me livestreaming.
Study of the day.:
that one looks smoooth
Awesome gallery! Been looking through your works and you catched my eye with your works
Nice diversity of works you have made, from people/creatures to mechs, etc. Keep up the great works!
FROZ3N: Will do!
So yeah, what a start with the livestreaming. My laptop kept overheating and shutting down every 15 min or so. After some overhauling and cleaning up I'm ready to try again. Curently all systems are go and laptop is keeping it cool...but we'll see.
Join me at http://www.livestream.com/DerivedApe
I will try to keep my eye on the chat so if you have questions or just wanna say hello, feel free.
love your work, and yes id definately watch one of your livestreams. youve got some powerful brushstrokes.

Oh crap I missed your livestreams. Though I watched couple of them later on.
Looking good, keep on streaming! I'll try to figure out how I manage to be there at the right time (since I don't visit ca that often). Oh and also thanks for showing me the existence of mixer brush
Blazingdimension: cool, and thanks
satu: Yeh, I need to find better venue for announcing my livestreaming. Or I could start some sort of schedule, though my studies and work make creating regular schedule problematic. :/
Meteorcat: Yeah, the birdie didn't come out as well as I initially thought. :/
Jordan: Thanks man! Hope to see you in the next livestream.
Quick study. Javik from ME 3. Love the design.
Also value study/testing.
dude how do you do it, so lovely!
Yo mate whats up!! Man these are awesome, are you sure you are not good with values? I really like what you are doing so far. Whats exactly bothering you? It seems you can work well with limited values so you kinda know what goes where. I think your problem may be compositional so let me know what you have in mind. And about smoothing actually in 756# you show that you know about that to . Dont know, i like very much what i see. The problems will be more visible when you proceed at doing an illustration, so maybe do one
I did a quick paintover but i am sure you would have done better, maybe it will act as a reminder . Definitely keep up !!!
King: Thanyou so much for dropping by and giving some C&C. Really apreciate it. It might very well be that the problme is in the composition and not in the values. hmmm...gotta do some tests on that.
Loving what you did in the paintover. Never realized that heal brush could be actually usefull in blending and smoothing!
Forgotten plain environment painting. Really need some environment pieces to my portfolio.
lol, nice to see you work.
here's the alternative boar total crappy paintover
do whatever you want with it...unspeakable things lol
I upped the contrast on the foreground dude a little, and widened the canvas
I played around with a few thing in the environment, such as rocks and debree on the ground,
and these pillars you've got going, to have them point more towards your point of interest: the boar.
And also a little bit to the secondary point of interest, the dude. Hope this helps.

great work lately man! really digging the subtle texture in your works! gives it another dimension of realism, but with the looser works it comes off really well.
