I'm exhausted, a few quick sketches before work last nite.
really fast about 15min
Having some scanner issues, might not be able to do more this week
seeing as i got to pick up peoples shifts at work. . .
I think im doing it all wrong, really opened my eyes, i;ll seriously have to revisit all this stuff next week.
hrgggh! SO much hard work! Keep it up!
Nice studies. It seems you totally are on the right way.
Your IDW wip looks cool, I dunno what the topic though I'll visit the current IDW topic, I neglect weekly activities recently (and I never ever participated in one, I have no confidence).
My finals for this weeks activities both really rushed sadly.
Gotta work out a better time management timetable/system.
parchment paper on the idw piece, free to use from this site:
should of really made my own.
Getting serious with Alan Davis, then some savage Conan comic book page flick thru studies, as well as a few quick imaginary sloshes . . .
haha so this is did today? lol keep up the hard work lol p.s you need to spend time with the gf
Acrylic painting from last nite + pencils for this weeks illustration of the week:
of babylon, sorry for the nudity.
Nice sketchbook. I notice from the last update that your figure heads are elongated vertically, creating long oval shapes. It makes the busts (the first couple) look a bit wonky. The poses on the fencing study are great, though more detail on the shading would be good. Also, the sketch an upload back of Starfire (I'm assuming) is wonderful, I love the dark line quality of that one, the line work seems more confident on that one. Keep up the work!
thought id sculpt today, don't really feel like painting the IOW the image seems
a bit too evil. Any way this is still a work in progress, thought id try to do
a goblin traveller sort of thing, focusing on my process, and details.
Last nights acrylic study, trying to render rocks/desert valley
good/bad not having the right paints but mixing till i sort of got close to the
right colors. came out a bit terrible.
Good studies! I think that some blocking studies might actually help you in achieving a more unified bodied look to your works! It can be digital or traditional, try and just block in paint without giving any attention to the details. Things will look more like they have form that way. Please keep working! =)

not much time left to finish this maybe one more day.
i like how its coming along its just got freaken killer loads still to do. . .
Pc going hay wire, gotta re install windows, cant upload anything?
guess i'll just use image hosting instead.
approximately 10 hours work. super rushed and messy but i like it.
Yep, this last one is a bit rushed, the colors feels somewhat random, you had a nice start though, I liked the creature in the last wip.
Your acrylic paintings... I'm not so good at criticizing enviros but I feel they lack depth. The one in #248 has nice things going on, I like how to drew trees and the colors are nice on them as well I think (the blue in the water is too strong in my opinion and the clouded sky doesn't feel right for such saturated colored foliage) but the rocks are kinda everywhere below horizon and they aren't different whatever they are so I don't feel much depth in this picture. A little more thoughts about composition would be nice.
The desert valley are a bit better at composition and depth I think but still could be better, I don't understand the foreground "crater" (?) or the purple in the background, but my biggest problem with the painting is the complete flatness of the bigger rock. I guess it's about the strokes, you painted it as a two dimensional surface.
Not a bad start that you have here. One critique would be to focus more on lighting and shadow shapes, especially with your environments. It's the shapes that people are going to recognize first and make it readable.
Otherwise keep it up!
Check out my webpage www.artofpaar.com
some James Gurney light studies, some pose maniacs shadows study, some Franzetta light/value study and sketches and some imagination skits.
value and lighting goes hand in hand really cant have one with out the other.
many mistakes i'll see if i can do better later today or tomorrow.
freaken scanner is destroying my fine values!!! aargh . . .
Scanning through your pages you really are growing. Keep pushing forward man!!!
try playing around with larger brushes in photoshop I think it will help you out a bunch.
a quick two hourly painting for this community activity:
KILL THE CHARACTER ABOVE !!!
had the honor of killing Nickybeats devil.
its a sort of medieval/paladin/cyborg.
Hey, I'm liking a good amount of those character poses. I'm seeing attention to anatomy and dynamic movement. You also have a pretty nice amount of interesting ideas. Now I would offer more advice on painting, but really the videos conceptart.org has for sale would do a far better job helping you improve than anything I could say. I recommend going online and grabbing those videos. They even have ones specializing in both character and creature creation. And they are only 6 bucks. (for a limited time)
Keep on keeping on.
some ships, done for gesture practice, really should do tons of hulls anyways
n some Bridgman randoms,
Duman: thanks, man those videos are awesome especially Jason Chan's one.
Man, I like these ships and those Bridgman studies. It looks like you just had a bit of a leap in ability in the last few posts, dude. I'm glad I decided to come visit your sketchbook, you try a bunch of new things and that's the only way to be.
We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out.

I don't know if you knew this but I don't actually draw.. if I did this sketchbook would really be an inspiration to me - the improvement, like others have said in this sketchbook, is all there and I like your recent studies and of course your contributions to the EOW!
Keep it up Adrian.
