Traction city is kickass!
The old deep tracks add to the realism, very smart touch.
Thanks for the tip about the waves.
I don't have photoshop but it's good to know.
cool designs and i love your last post it fantastic design
CeeJay - Yep. Workshop will be amazing. Tickets on sale today apparently. I'll be getting mine this weekend I posted a render of the city from a persons POV for ya. Its not painted up though. Think I'm gonna let that project rest for a little while.
Hybrid_75 - thanx man
D.O.Jones - thanks yous!
Leo Ki - oh sorry dude! Just figured you had it Keep on truckin!
destinyapocalypse - thanks man
Been very busy with work lately, but here are some lifedrawings. Felt I needd to update. Oh and the POV render for CJ
Man, was high time, your sketchbook was about to turn moldy
Nice warm lighting on these studies, and you let me wondering
about your picking the right texturing while on speed mode.
Is your book adaptation on standby?
some very nice work 'ere matty! i know i sit but a few cubes away from ya... but hey... really enjoyed the pose studies! great work!
Hey Leo, thanks for staying loyal despite my neglect! Book adaptation has basically been canned. I was doing it as a portfolio and it got me the work I wanted (which is what also silenced my sketchbook). I am still drawing heaps though, just can't share much of it. Getting back into the personal stuff more this year though.
abaker - chur my cube brother Your stuff is poppin! Great to see you on here finally
Here are some watercolour sketches. I bought a little travel watercolour set before the summer break, and endeavour to keep up the sketches on a regular basis. They are all A5, done on site. New adventure for me but I already feel it improving my ability to visualise what I am going to do before I do it. Digital is too forgiving to teach you to plan a brushstroke, or even an image at times. Anyways, here are the first few
Great that you started posting again. Looking good man!

Hey guys, thanks for the support.
Here's a quick imagination drawing. Happy how it came out. I know it's cliche'd but if you look back through my thread it wasn't long ago I couldn't draw anything without accurate reference. This I knocked out quick and painlessly on a whim. All the hard work is gradually paying off
Might work into it more, but here it is for now.

the watercolors are definately nice! done over a rough sketch? congrats on getting some use out of the set you purchased. I agree and think there are many lessons to be learned from traditional mediums.
The last sketch is neat! i really like the mechanical parts of the arm, it looks quite functional. It reminds me a quite a bit of Predators. To make the action more dynamic, I would suggest rotating the hand down or up so its not parallel with the wrist.
Hey man, I like the watercolours very nice. and that latest wip is looking great. Cool seeing you the other day as well. I was a bit overwhelmed at the time as I'm sure you'll understand Well good stuff, good to see you posting I gotta get my A into gear on this again too.
CCCCooooooollll stuff man, haven't been here in a while, and your improving heaps.
Love the life drawings and studies and great line work in all.
traction city is awesome too.
keep it up mate,
fucking ace man! really digging that sketch, the arm is really well designed i reckon just give the hues a bit more oomph and sharpen some of the edges for a bit more contrast? good job man, can't wait till the next update!
