Like so many others this site is a source of inspiration. And, to be honest, a source of FRUSTRATION when I look at how skilled so many people are!
But I've decided to take action and post my sketchs and paintings up to date, and most importantly, use this Thread as a inspiration to myself and possibly others. I'm hoping it will give me the oomph I need to keep producing art consistantly.
I'd like to get more involved with discussion and feedback so if any of you have the slightest comment, please post it. It'll help me improve and maybe I can become a familiar face around here.
Anyways, less talk. More rock. I'm posting a bunch of my older stuff. Reason being because it may serve as a good refrence to mark improvements as I continue.
I'll do a second post with stuff I've done within the last year or so.
There's actually a few in here that I did last year I think. Ah.... time flies
OKAY KIDDIES, welcome to DAVEY JONES' LOCKER!!
I was pleased with this. Didn't quite finish the details on everything. But still, I learned alot with Painter and I was able to execute some stuff I learned.
Here's the lineart. I started with the Mech and my brain just kept adding and adding until there was a street battle. It's great to get carried away with your drawings, not sure where they'll end up.
These were done as I was learning Painter. I love that program, just haven't had enough time to really get it down.
The top guy is some WWI captain, I used ref for the guns, just had fun with it.
There was a Diablo 2 fan art competition a while back and I did this for it. Slipped past the deadline, but it was fun to paint. Brought back alot of memories of heading out from the Pandamonium Fortress... In Nightmare difficulty no less!
I did this a year ago. Really liked it. It's calling out to me to color it in. So that's on my list of things to do. I'll hopefully do it and post it soon.
No ref, but inspired by Capcom's awesome art style
Here's some older stuff....
Oh look! A Birdie!! Pretty bird..... Pretty bird.... (Used Ref)
another one. (From Ref)
I thought I'd throw this in, mainly because I like the way the snake turned out. That knight's in bad shape though, poorly drawn and being attacked by a level 22 pit viper!
Here's a castle I want to live in but nobody's built it yet
Here's the Shack where I'll probably end up living in...
I was doing these while dreaming of being a ninja
Okay, there's the beginning. I'll have more for ya soon. My computer says it's 12:00am on the dime so it's probably a good time to hit the sack. Gotta be up early to build Web Pages!
