thanks again algenpfleger, answered your question in your sketchbook!!
ok here a quick b/w sp done with help of my dear mirror
quick tree painting
these are looking great I especially enjoyed the latest enviorn and Self Portrait.
i really hope that i am ready for the next level
i will do some oil paintings the next week and other FINISHED stuff...
hope that i hold my words...
here a character sketch
and an update to that jungle painting i did some days ago
Your hard work and dedication to creating your art is a very big inspiration to me, I admire an artist who continually pushes themselves, and is always willing learn and try new things.
Your environment paintings are especially a treat to view, 5 stars from me.
Thank you soooo much Quinn, this means a lot to me, because i am quite lonely with my painting and drawings where i live and study
(i study interior design / interior architecture) so it´s hard sometime to kick my own ass to go on.
Thanks for the endophines!
Chris thanks and here an update for the character design.
I don´t know if i am stupid or not, ´cause i do a initial sketch but skip the better outlining and go straight to painting...
well here the second step (still wip,... u see?!)
step 3 little refinements
step 4 of 5
I hoped that i show you some awesome oil paintings and sketches after eastern,
but..i did quite nothing.
There was really no time to do anything like painting the last days.. what a pity...
nevertheless here is a new sketch i did today (30min) no refs., not finished
and a color / value / enviroment study ... no ref. about 30min
and a even darker enviro... no refs about 40min
This stuff is great. I love your environments/characters/everything, and it's way cool of you to post process shots of your pieces. Thanks for the inspiration - you're probably helping more people out than you think.
cool stuff man,, great texture on the last one.
thanks Kicek and Ex Nihilo for you kind words!!!
update: next progress shot....
i am not quite sure about the background yet!
juhu just some little refinements and it is F I N I S H, can´t believe it..
hope that´s the way you want it...
I just have to do some last work on the pants and some tweaks here and there
started this painting in PS but switched to Painter after a while.
No refs so far, bottom body still in construction...
I don´t know about the background (forest?) and the item i will give her...
quick sketch for another painting....
step two: first color lay in, giant character change etc.
I hope it doesn´t look too much like Totoro by Miyazaki, to whom i realize some similarities...
I spend another hour on this painting, i still unsure about the concept... and story behind the piece.
Great updates, Your working hard and it shows.
Amazing rendering on the womens face in this latest painting!
Nothing but respect for you my friend.
your work with reference is so AWESOME (knight on page 24). an your environs too!
Im crying about every minute, and every awesome picture you lost through working NOT with reference ... the quality difference is 1:1000. paint a picture of a beautiful woman for me, with reference pleeeeeeeeeeez
