HI your art is EPIC ... i was wondering if you want to be an illustrator you have yo go off someone else's ideas ... can you illustrate one of mine (i suck at drawing right now...)
Thanks Zane I might not have time to do more collaboration projects at the moment. I've already promised a bunch of friends I'd help them with their stuff and I'm struggling with time management... sorry
Hi Mortn, thanks Most of the work in the thread is personal. I didn't get around to being an illustrator yet..I have a day-job as a production artist for movies right now, but there's nothing in the thread with work from that -- all the recent stuff in this thread is what I work on during the evenings or on the weekends
Latest progress on the storm painting
very cool sketchbook pages
I think I overdid the levels because the girl gets a bit too "graphic" but hope it communicates what I was talking about.
First image is your original image desaturated (slightly shrunk).
Basically a levels adjust. We may not agree, so take it with a hill of salt.
I really like your rendering and the way you think about faces. Your designs for smoke and folds and such are really great too. very nice illustrative work :3
I really, really like your stuff! Very dynamic and lot of story all in one pile of goodiness. You do seem to lose a lot of the great value balance and life in your sketches when you start adding colour though which is a shame. Do you mind if I try my hand at colour this? I just got a completely different sense of lighting situation from the sketch and I thought it might be interesting to see what would happen if I fiddled with it.
Hi Pixie Trick Yeah... you can totally color that drawing. Thanks for taking an interest I would love to see what you do with it... and yes, I completely agree. The issues you bring up have been something I've been struggling with for a while.
I'm really looking forward to seeing what you do with it
TFsean, thanks very much Folds are a lot of fun for me. I'm hoping to practice with more fantasy stuff since there's lots of drapery in that genre. Thanks for the comment
Great stuff man! Excellent drawings and paintings. Your attention to detail and form is astounding and your composition is splendid! Keep up the awesomeness!
Awesome, I enjoy your art style very much so. Love the Kenny vs Spenny sketches, my favorite show!
