Dizoooooooooonnnnnnnn LOVELY UPDATES MAN!!! nothing to crit really, just licking yer arse keep on the hard work, TDs later today!
great man!great concept sketch just keep going.=)
Awesome artist and friends
the first characters on the page kick my ass. the pose on the last one looks a bit weird to me....i think its not as heroic as you wanted it to be, prolly it depends on her right leg....
im not sure.....
Those quick sketches are getting better and better!
"The librarian" looks somewhat like a metal statue. You wouldn't expect a strong glow on fabric like his clothing right?
Think the sketch in #324 is really promising. Especially that face is really well handled. I just cant understand how you manage to get so much detail in there even though there is so little difference in value.
Keep working on the stability of those poses. Some of the loomis and character sketches seem somewhat unbalanced. Though I think the far right one in #332 has a convincing pose.
Love the creature.
#336 - look into the knees, mostly the left one (her right). Thin and little structure. Great armor design.
Love the environment in #327 by the way. Strong atmosphere!
Any specific time you're doing those IRC thunderdomes by the way?
Anthis- Thanks! Good to see you. With regards to the "Librarian". I thought of exactly the same thing after I did that. I'm not particularly fond of it either. I should have approached it differently. Speed paintings can get pressuring sometimes, so I think it had an effect on this piece, but I try not to be anymore. It was one of the early TDs I did too, so at least I learned something out of it. Did you get Noodle's PM about the IRC TDs? They're usually active at around 12am onwards in my time haha. That's when I TD with them.
Teapo- I appreciate the kind comments, man. Thanks for visiting.
Sorry not been around for a while, what with the band and making jewelry and stuff, but those are over with now...
Anyway, I'm loving all your updates on the past 4-5 pages, really moody atmospheres and lovely use of colours and composition, the robot army one on the last page caught my eye, maybe more debris flying around to emphasise the action in the foreground?
I also especially like your speedpainting, and the Giant Samurai kicks ass, great posture and weapon!. Any way I'd like to see more of your environments they are looking sweet and I enjoyed the step by steps.
No crits really, just keep on postin ;D
Cool reptilian warrior. Please, do another, or take this one further.
Hi, guys. Thanks for the comments.
I've been working on this character design on and off. I have no actual background story for this guy for now, but I see him as a main character who's in his mid to late 20's who lives in the city. Anyway, I plan to choose one variation of this guy and make turnarounds for it and a colored version. I want to know which one you guys like and if you have any suggestions please let me know. Thanks!
This is what I've been trying to learn lately...Coloring for comics!!! I'm hoping to get some samples done to get some work. It's actually fun but a lot of work! I also happened to learn A LOT of stuff I haven't really thought of before like working in CMYK color and finally learning how to color the line art properly! lol
The first is the "flats" and the colors next. Hope you guys like. I will post others in the coming days.
Heh, maybe it's just because I've been reading so much Hellblazer lately, but I sort of like the flats better
Just a matter of personal opinion on style though (or like I said, what you're used to). The colors look great! Really pro. You got more of these? Are they for something, or just random pages for practice?
Is that first page from the Cannon series? I like the blue, it being my favorite color, but it almost seems like it needs a bit more contrast with the explosion.
The second one is definitely better. Though the building in the background looks a bit like it's in a yellow haze.
Dunno if you've been to The Huedoo Forums but they have weekly challenges and things for colorists. You can pick up more stuff to color, usually in a nice big format. That is assuming you haven't been there.
I use MSPaint.
Sweet SB! Lot's of diversity and cool concepts. Keep it up. I'll tune in later for some more inspiration.
My path of learning (sb)
Lander- That's nice to hear from you.
teapo- Thanks, man. I'll work on that thing soon.
Kaileighblue- I really have no idea which comic that is from. I just got it from some site. Thanks for the link!
Hai-I know what you mean. Flats are awesome too! Actually I'm hoping to do some color jobs that's why I'm doing these for samples. Thanks!
Here's the last one for now. A page from Tomb Raider. Had lots of fun with this one! Anyone have suggestions on how to create a "blurred, drugged vision effect" on the very last panel???

i think like Hai, flats seems cool. but anyway i always prefer kind of flat rendering when it comes to comics.
so good luck with your work
me too, i 've some comic work to do. so let's share our (future) experience in this field
