p sage: Thanks a lot mate. Glad i'm going in the right direction!
p sage: True true. Nicely put. I'll keep trying to feel it out, haha.
Did a lot of drawing today. These are a few I liked. No ref for them, just wanted to test what I know. And clearly i dont know a lot. Time to study males!!
Life here is busy. But the best kind. Productively busy! Love it!!
From life! First time I've gotten a chinese model. Was awesome, haha.
Environments for the folio:
Thats all for now.
I see improvement! Theres something about those last two enviros. They just seem so epic! Though I feel parts of them are a bit muddy which adds to the loss of clarity in some areas. Im sure studies might kick it in the right direction.
Nice shapes on those weapons. The lasso tool? uh, I have trouble using that as well.
keep it up man!
himart: Thanks a lot man!
léJeanX3: Ey, my old friend! So nice to see you here. Thanks so much for your comments. You're right, I'm going to study some more on enviros. They're so much fun, its easy to get sucked in.
And thanks again. Yeah, the lasso tool feels slow. I sped up closer to the end, but also got a little careless. I guess i was tired, lol. With more practice, i'll get better . Thanks again mate!
Finished these pages. Will probably go back and clean them up more, but dont for now, yo.
seage im not sure if its just me but the pictures you linked on page 20 arent loading D:
Never Attempt the Possible;attempt the impossible and even if you fail,you'll fall among the stars.
Nah, its not just you. They were hotlinked from my Sketchbook on CGHub. Seems they disabled their hotlinking. At least to this site, because it shows up elsewhere. Which kinda sucks since i lose an entire page, lol.
Decided to be crazy and tackle a huge number of paintings in 1 day. Im not that fast yet. More practice. Gonna really refine some of these. These are rather rough. The colors are not where I would want them to be in a finished piece.
These are only a few that I liked.
Ok, bai now...
Aryeh: What the?! I know you tooo!! Haha, thanks for stopping by, mate
2 pieces I was playing with today. This first one, I wanted to have a chinese feel to it, and in the 2nd, I was attempting to capture that energy and flow I try to put in my figures! I hope you like them.
They are both not finished.
Update in the day...with the frizz?? NO WAY~ Oww.....
Cruisin on down main street, we're relaxing feeling cool *yeaaah*
Next thing that you know we're going WAAH HAHAA HOOOO
Environments in the neighborhood?!
I like the first one in your series of environments most. The colors are really subtle and appealing.

Man... I havent been in here for DAYS!.. REALLY love the improvement I've been seeing from you! your definitely pushing yourself with new concepts/ideas and use of narrative in your work. keep it up man!
Nice handling of digital colors man. I like the color play on this one--> http://bbs.5d.cn/uploadFiles/2011-05/IXCG7QVH6L9L.jpg
Although, I would suggest tightening up your work for more professionalism. I could swear, some of them looked rushed, or is it just me??

shambok: Thanks so much Glad you like!
Odayga: Just days? You spoil me ! Brings a tear to my manly eye! But seriously, your support means a lot to me, so thank you!
léJeanX3: LeJean! Ma man!! Do it!! I hope I can inspire you to bust out some more killer work, that woul dmake me so happy! Haha.
poetry man: Mate...you're from my old city.....o.o. I JUST moved away a bit over a month ago to montreal. But i grew up in Brampton! But yeah, its not just you. The ones that looked rushed WERE rushed. They're not finished pieces. I did them in 1 day. I painted about 15 pieces, in 1 day. They were only taken to a rough stage. Id need to give them more love before they're considered "finished".
Painting architecture is new to me. Im gonna keep at it till its smoother.
Sorry i've been away. I've got my portfolio up now, and I've been looking for work!
If you know of anything freelance, let me know. I'm in need
Short comic I'm working on. Only 2 pages. I'll be done soon!!
Color work. The lines were drawn by my friend Trisha, and the color was done by me!
Your weapon concepts and your latest architectural drawing are really great.
I love the abstract quality to your enviroments. You should try and put figures into the enviroments more, as the figures are of a slightly lower quality than your BGs, imho.
Good work with your chinese model though, patience really pays of in your figures!
Ariel9: Hey Miss, thank you! I want to try putting figures in my enviros. Its funny. If you look back through my sketchbook, you may find a few other enviros, past this and the previous page, but not many. Then I FINALLY give into that burning desire to paint them, and it just feels so natural. Sad that my figures really ARE lower quality, even though I spent more time on them, haha. And thank you about the model. You're right. I think im just naturally slow
As I was saying to Ariel, this is so odd. As of now, I have been painting enviros from my head, and only taking reference from whats out my window. I plan to study it and master it. I really want to go far, not only in the abstract type work, but tighter or controlled layouts and perspective!
Anyways, enough talk, you will see it when you see it Love you all!
Small update. Im still learning. Hope I can speed up.
Wow, in my next life I'd love to be as good as you!!!!!!
Your designs have SERIOUSLY IMPROVED!! as well as your illustrations! very dramatic, intense and in the moment! those kind of compositions/works are my drug!!! Keep on going man your doing great!
Conniekat8: Hello miss. Thank you for your words. But as I told you in your SB, you dont need to wait until your next life, as you're already awesome, and getting better fast!
Odayga: Thank you so much! Im working very hard on it. I was stuck in a comfort zone and just exploring there (hardly). Im really glad you like what im doing now. Thank you for the support.
Gotta get lines yo. I love working in big shapes, but it can no longer be a cop out due to not knowing how to use line. So heres some studies from yesterday.
Hey Nice enviro work! Really starting to feel the space in them - love it when you get that 'I could just jump right in and start exploring' vibe! you're getting there! - Keep it up dude

I like the direction you're going in with your digis . Those colors look fantastic. Ooohh, and I love your ink sketches in #569. They look great and the proportions are good despite being in ink and the apparent speed you've done them with. Anyway, this is just an asspat/motivation comment so YEAAHH keep going, practice moar!
The7Artist7: Thanks a lot man! Yeah, I'm trying to pull away from that abstract look I have going on. I think it works on some occasions, but for me, it was just my lack of knowledge being hidden under 'flash'. I'm trying to pound out the foundations now, and make these locations deeper and richer! I shall keep going forward!!
Saara_ : Thank you Saara. Colors are always something i'm experimenting with and attempting to expand on. I tend to push it a bit, lol. And thank you about the ink drawings. It took quite a while to get comfortable with it that night, but 1000 failures until you get 1 success, right? Thanks again for your support! More more more!!
Heres an early morning WIP of a commission im working on. Started yesterday. Its quite big and kills my PC in the face. I need to get a new rig
