Conceptart.org has been an collection of crazy artists and inspiration for me for years now. I decided I need to be more involved with the community and throw myself at the mercy of the talent here. Here is some of my shat, apologies for the massive dump. Oh and comments, crits, suggestions, ideas, anything and everything is welcome. Thanks!

A bit of an update! I really need to start getting into the swing of updating my work across the interwebs and not just on my blog. Well thanks for stopping by and enjoy the massive dumpages.
This was the only notepad I had at work to doodle on. My apologies for lined paper X_X
This was a collaboration I did with my great friend Sporkii
And here is one I was working on with leJeanX3:

Ive said it before and Ill say it again, love your design 'jyles.' I hope you take that four armed sci-fi dude (among others) further.

Lovely update! I like flow of your poses. Second drawing is awesome, but in third girl's head is too small i think. Keep good work!
May 9th, 2011, 05:42 PM
Moooooooooooooooore. You've been a big inspiration of mine for awhile. Good shit, homie.
May 15th, 2011, 06:51 PM
I love all your sketches and paintings.
You should post more often!
May 15th, 2011, 07:12 PM
I like your expressive lines. I enjoyed looking through your images!
May 15th, 2011, 07:18 PM
Dude your character stuff is awesome. I really love a lot of your drawings. I think your drawing abillity is topnotch, really. Maybe the painting part isn't keeping the same pace? You could probably spend some time refining that side of the skills for a bit so it's nice and even.
If you have good anatomy foundation and stuff then the painting part won't be too hard I think. That's what it seems like with artists that are better at drawing than painting. Marko Djurdjevic is a great example... he drew a whole fucking lot, and then he just jumped right into painting and it didn't take him long to make sick paintings.
Anyway.. you're doing some great stuff, keep it up! I love what I'm seeing so far.
May 15th, 2011, 07:20 PM
Or maybe.. some of this stuff is old. Cause I can see some rollercoaster stuff going on.
So you might just want to ignore that comment about the painting.
May 15th, 2011, 10:57 PM
a la bapsi: Ahh well thank you for that
léJeanX3: Thanks man! Yea I am sure one day I will be sitting around not knowing what to paint, and then go back to those and touch em up Until then, onward Ho!
hu-ha: Thanks Hu-ha, yea her head is kinda small now that its not so fresh in my mind. When I was working on her, I was trying to get this almost gawky teen type feel, but a small head doesn't really help sell that. Thanks for the crit!
Jovian M: Thank you my friend! I am very glad to do it, and honestly I take it as a huge compliment, so thank you very much!
Voodoo_Mama: Thank you, I will try to keep a constant stream of work going for your viewing pleasure!
Wooli: Hey thanks Wooli! I greatly appreciate that
Loathsome: Thanks man! I really appreciate you taking the time to go into it a bit more. You are totally right, my paints are weaker than my pencils, I am trying to balance them out a bit more. Marko was a huge inspiration on my work and even mindset after hearing him talk at a CA workshop years back. His paints really compliment his lines and when they combine it works so well. Definitely something I want to strive for. Also you are correct in the time frame of when these were done. Overall all the work shown here is from the past year or so. But again, thanks I really appreciate your comments and suggestions.
Onward with the new junk:
I am trying to round out my weakness in environments and just exercise more in that field. I feel most of my backgrounds come out with lack of depth, and boring perspective. So hopefully in the future you will see some more interesting ish. If there are any comments, crits, or helpful tips I would greatly appreciate that. I think my shape language in my enviros is very limited and need to experiment more, and not be so timid with things.
May 17th, 2011, 12:42 PM
I love that environment with the dragon, it's the best looking one in my opinion.
the other two look more unfinished compared to the first one.
May 25th, 2011, 03:33 AM
man nice pencils...and designs too..awesome
May 25th, 2011, 03:44 AM
That's some top notch work there!!!!!
