no idea bro. its cool tho. im gona keep working until my thread is an undeniable five stars. wont be happy till then anywayOriginally Posted by cartoonfox
heres a quick study i did this morning before work. trying to employ all the recent things ive learned about temperature and depth. this one seems too airbrushy tho. maybe i need to prioritize my marks and lights and darks more. i THINK it focuses better....could be too bright in the chest area, and the breasts may be oddly shaped, due to me skrewin around with the shadows. anyway. i only had a few minutes, and i figured id use thatr few minutes to study!

nice new one, great colors, lets see her face...
Hey Marco, I love looking through your sketch book. As others have said there been a great amount of improvement and it's been a lot of fun to watch the progress. Going man, this is great stuff.
Artist, Vicarious Visions
alright, finaly got around now to getting more done on my world of warcraft contest entry (yea i know...cheezy, but there are good prizes, and i cant let myself not try. ) still havent resolved the issue with the pet down on the lower right hand corner, still dont know if its gona be a cat or a bear
damn that line up the middle on the bottom and across the middle of the composition are so distracting!! lol. freakin sketchbook stuff. ive manage to completely redraw the orc from what i had drawn in my old sketchbook, which had gotten stolen.....hahaha. needless to say, the orc looks 100% better.
Good stuff marco, ive really enjoyed lookin at ure stuff - was sry to here about ure sketchbook to.
On this last one though i might say , the elfs left arm looks a little out of place - maybe not coming from the right spot on here body sort of thing. The pet is looking pretty static aswell - not very dynamic at all. Try moving the legs around at least a little.
Orc looks awesome, i really like him . 2 things, the boots look a little plain, comapred the awesomo shoulders and helmet etc. Also his arms look a little too mish-mash with muscles, especially on the back part down the elbow and around, could be larger spots of muscle, like youve done with the bicep and wrist area.
Thanks for posting though, sketchbook is good inspiration
yea, the pet for now is just a placeholder. i think im gona actually make it a bear.the arm on the orc i agree. i SUCK with adobe photoshop tho, so sometimes i add extra pencil work for texture,. it give sme something to add texture from when i paint over it.
as far as the girls arm...does it really look outta place? i actually had a girl down the street pose for reference, lol.
whoa what an update! i love that orc!
but now the elf head looks into the wrong direction. she's looking off somewhere into the distance...no good
i'd say make that "pet" definately a bear -makes the orc ever more frightening
These are fucking amazing man - huge improvement since I last checked in; like Cartoonfox said, 5 stars from me all the way mate, really impressive skills.
Think these are sure to get you into the CA course (did I understand right?). Great work and please keep them rolling in - am sure to check in here more often!
Great sb Marco, but you already know that.
Since you joined, I've been stalking(in a good way) your work.
Thanks for sharing with us all.
DON'T CLICK THIS
iam not someone that tell's much on CA.. but i just want to let you know i like you work.. all people say the things that should be told > like your works rocks and that kind of shit... its true. it rocks... so that where my words again... keep posting.!
Great stuff since I've last been through here. I agree that the Orc is a great improvement over the last and Carnifex was dead on about suggesting a shift in the NE's head direction...
Here's what I'm taking away from the image thus far:
The orc's been peppered with arrows, but he took a good shot in the bicep and that pissed him off. It's not bothered him enough that he's lost his grip on his weapon, but he's going to tear the offending arrow out and lay into this NE...
Now, the NE, she's a bit shaken here. Her pet's down (possibly for the count) and her quiver has nothing to offer. She's got what appears to be a skinning knife left to defend herself, but unless she's some wicked little cutter, she's going to have some trouble getting through that guy's reach...
Personally, I think you should crank up her intensity a bit, as if this should be the moment just before the lightning strikes the ground and someone passes into oblivion. I'd like to see her rising up to meet this guy in a "No one fucks up my nightsaber (soon to be bear) and walks away..." I really like how her hand is on the bestie's head...It's gentle, yet not in a lingering "come back to me" sort of way...
I don't honestly believe that she, being a warrior-huntress, is going to just wait for this guy to descend on her in a damsel-in-distress sort of way, because her pet is down...Shift that head, as Carnifex suggested, and I think the possibilities for real confrontation will present themselves...Of course, you can ignore all of this and it'll still turn out as one rockin' piece...
WOW guys!!! you all replied lightning fast!!
phatandy- thanx bro for the crit. i wanted the boots plainer, because i dont want to over clutter the scerenity of the piece, like i said, itll be white, snowing, but bloodspattered. kinda like in kill bill...the final sword fight scene. it was calm, and quiet, but powerful. (the one with oren ishiee)
asoir= thanx! ive been struggling to inmprove my style, while tryign to get away from it
carnifex, so true. remember back to the previous version of this though....the orc was to the left, rather than to the right. ill eitehr correct it, or maybe throw something into the background, faintly....like her companions running to her help in the distance, which gives her a glimmer of hope.... bu tthat would put her in the damsel in distress thing...
demented= lets hope, lol
evildisco thanx!!! your sb and your ability to draw women impresses me! i happened to pop in to your conceptart.org sketcher program entry with the girl sketch. breathtaking
young paddy= hah, thanx puff daddy. i appreciate that,. lets hope i can keep it up there.
oma= that means a lot man. i appreciate those who are soft spoken.
matt= hahaha, funny u should post. i did a redesign of one of the guys in your sketchbook. the guy that looks like hes half bat, with the horns. its nothing special tho. just felt like doing it, ill post when im off of work maybe
and last but NOT least.....AnalogDoll......
you took the thoughts completely outta my head. incredible.
and no, i wont ignore it. i cant. you guys have such great ideas. and art is nothign without ideas
wow man.. these are very nice! I espically liked the black chick with the multiple arms you and mr blonde did.. Your muscle renderings are very cool.. keep it up man
dude you did it
didnt you ask me what we had to do like a week ago to get 5 stars?
now i have to figure it out hhahahahaha
ill keep trying
your wow entry is looking good
i might do a starcraft entry or something
(though to be honest im a mac guy so mmo's and me are strangers)
keep it up man
hey man, im stoked to see this WOW painting, not only because i love playin WoW, but I also love seeing a hot piece of ass, and that night elf has it in spades!! Ive got no crits so far, cant wait to see where you go with it!
Stunning work mate, this one is coming along in way I had never imagined - totally surpassed my expectations. Get some movement in that one and it'll rock anyone's boots off. Totally killer!
Kian= thanx man! yea, i love to sculpt with paint...im not comfortable with color yet....so it does seem as tho im building with colors, cuz im unsure, lol
Asoir=, cmon man, flattery gets you nowhere, lol. besides, i have a LOT of work to do. i can DEFINATELY see my improvement over the summer tho....
APE= what server u on?
demented= me too bro..i had no idea it would turn out like this...work is BEGINNING to pay off. cant stop now!
lohan, thanx. yea, i put the fake muyscles in the arm as a technique.....i add too much detail with my pencils, so that i can have a selection and texture when im painting. and it adds texture, and helps me build up a form.
yeah, someone took mine down to 4 not too long ago.Originally Posted by cartoonfox
pshhh whatever. im just gonna keep posting no matter how many stars i have.
love the new work man, you're really steppin it up. fucking awesome paintover done by mr. blonde, and new painting by you, realy fucking cool to see that type of thing happening....thats why i love this website, i really get a sense of comunity here.
i love it man. that orc looks soo freakin pissed. and i like the snow on it... when i saw it it at once reminded me of the Warcraft/Wow world. it could be the color of the orc and how he looks as well. this will look great when you finish it.
and you did a re-sketch of one of my images. no way! are you talking about another matt? psh.. i'm excited to see it! :o
