ha, man, i feel so uncreative in comparison when i look at your stuff.
@llex_paul: thanks! here are more studies
@Quike Garcia: thanks Quike!
@Carnifex: thanks for stopping by dude
still working on this comic thing and i can't show any of it.
But here's some recent stuff in case anyone is still watching
Some fantasy-themed doodles:
Another angry dude:
A couple of digi-doodles:
A dog giant and a puppy study:
a couple of figure studies (trying to work on rendering and patience!)
See? I knew you could draw women:p
You should do more rendering/ patience studies same theme please
Now, seriously, your values work is coming along great
hehe nice smiles there mate . Keep up these value studies, your drawing is great already. Maybe be a little more careful with the highlights. In your traditional stuff [which you cant add highlights] i think you get better values, maybe because you do better value planning on them. lets keep up !!!
loving those traditional pieces !!!!! it definitely shows in your digital stuff that you have structure.
Lol, old is good. I like to see where people came from. So I checked out pages 1 and 50 then spent a pleasant while going through your last 8.
I love your style. Even when you're working on different things, there's a feel of you in all of them and it makes me smile. Really cool stuff all round.
And oh yeah, the real Get Carter. Nice.
Awesome update, loving the dog giant, as I am a big dog person Keep it up!
I would like to ask you, since you are a comic artist (primarily), would you say line and value are you strongest points over color? I'm asking because I'm struggling with color as well.
The get carter is wonderful. If you'd add a bit more definition on and around the eyes, it would be even better
Love your pencils!
Some of your digital pieces cold use some work, mainly in sharpening some key focus areas, but otherwise you're definitely on the right track.
A creative artist works on his next composition because he is not satisfied with his previous one. When he loses a critical attitude toward his own work, he ceases to be an artist. - Dmitri Shostakovich
Great light and textures on this last one Is that a double wang?
He surely looks like the ladies man..
Your drawings and sketches are always top Ryan!!! Maybe push this last creature some more, i would render these lines.
Keep up the great work!!!
Hard to the Core, bra. Lovin' all the shiz.
The film valve studies are ace.
The 'Invocation' piece. I don't know if you're gonna take it further and I just think the scale is not conveyed as strong as it could be if you used a somewhat lower angle shot instead.
Additionally, there's an opportunity for (I think) a cool compositional element if you use the low angle shot, as you would be able to place the cave opening directly behind the creature's head to create a nice focal point with strong contrast.
The values in these last pieces are really spot on. The light on the staff on the invocation pieces doesn't seem to project anything though.
Great work man!!!
@HunterKiller_: thanks man! i didn't do much planning on the latest digital sketches but you're right, i could have gone for a stronger composition.Thanks for the support!
@Quike Garcia: thanks for the visit as usual Quike, really appreciate it.
this sketchbook feels kinda empty but i'll keep posting anyway
Here some new stuff!
I'll be collaborating with a bunch of really cool artist on Steve LeCouillard's Una the Blade.
Here's a couple of sketches to start familiarizing with the main character:
Did a test designing a Destroyer class spaceship.You can see all the steps on my blog right HERE in case you're interested.
Here's a couple of digital thinghies, just having fun and loosening up my technique (these were really fun to paint!).
You can see them at full res on my DeviantArt page.
and finally, this thing:
lemme know what you guys think please!
This rhino rider is just missing a huge machine gun d:
I really like the destroyer process. and also the fact that you're collaborating in Una the Blade (:
Looking great! Those studies are looking really good, and I like your ship designs. The rhino rider is awesome! Nice values, good form, and that old paper texture really adds something overall. Look forward to more!
Hey bud, looks like you're fighting the fight on the digital front, and the war is starting to go your way!
Your digis aren't yet in the same realm as your awesome pencil work, but I believe you're getting there... this latest batch of your should be encouraging.
Go go go!
@Quike Garcia: thanks Quike! here's something with machineguns
@chevy28360: thank you!
@p sage: hey dude! nice to see you stop by again. I notice the difference between my pencil work and my digital work and i'm trying to work on filling that gap_ thanks for the support!
here's me riding a gatling-gun armed wooly rhino with my imaginary girlfriend:
It always cracks me up when I see this one
after a pretty long absence, here's some update.
I'm still currently busy with my first big comic-related job, but i'm occasionally trying to carry on with my illustration and conceptart studies.
I'm posting most of my stuff on stuff on facebook these days but its so hard to get some constructive crits!
Hope you guys like, i'm looking forward to hearing your feedback and suggestions!
Just to get started posting again, here's something different.I tried doing some actual "traditional" painting on some walls.It was refreshing to gets my hands actually dirty, i have to try this again!
Omfg, that gattling-rhino-picture is super-awesome! I love it
