Your latest drawings and oils are so inspirational! I absolutely love how you work with pencils
your pencils are just amazing.. your oils are great.. this is just a great sketchbook period. You are so skilled!
"We are the music makers... and we are the dreamers of dreams."
Love you'r oil works.
I can't wait to see you'r final of the newborn. The sketch seems like a realy good idea!
Really like your interpretation of Gorey's "Fanny" character; I also like how you've improved your hands, and especially feet, since then -- your women no longer have man-feet, hurray!
Keep goin' strong Cheers
Look, see! Nifty art! http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=99803

Strassenpenner08: thanks. kinda of, it's a long story, but i got the description below.
Frank GressieThanks, Frank.
Texahol: yeah, i know, it just a bad habit.
Slobosaurus: oh, dang. That sucks...I hope you find a place soon, man.So you can come draw and paint with us.
dTb: thanks. Right now, the summer workshops for the Academy are currently. We do have our own workshops conducted every Sunday of the week at a friends place but that's been slowing down cause of the break. So, no workshops...for now. I'll give you a heads up if any arises.
AmontilladoAg: thanks. yea i know, well that's what i get for studying Michelangelo...
bandaidboy12: thanks. Sketches are going slow because the contest is holding me up, but i'll do that once it's over.
IanE: thanks. Hopefully i can go back to ink again, just in the mood for value now that i started painting traditionally.
Been slaying over this painting...18 hours a day literally with 5-6 hours of sleep for the last two weeks. I've never done anything this extensive and demanding before. Each of the smaller character took about 2 to 3 hours to render out, it was tiresome but fun at the same time and i learned so much about color while doing this piece! The original document that i worked on is pretty big, about some 10000 pixels by 4000 pixels, so i work pretty big. It's too bad the final submission have to be shrunk down to minimum 1000 pixels width. I'd wish i had more time because i found out about the contest two weeks ago.... The main complaint i have about this painting is that after i convert the RIFF file to photoshop, i lost most of my shiny textures, those were the highlight of the painting and no you can barely see them, probably only a little when zoomed in to a 100 percent...oh well...
All done from imagination. Any likeness or similarities are probably going to be coincidental....lol
I used Corel Painter 11 with the artist oil bristle brush and some brush tweaking...
Story: So pretty much, the Sumerians(the oldest civilization to date) has this tale of how an alien race known as the Anunaki(s) created man from genetically altering the embryo of a Homo-erectus and planting them in fourteen birth goddess after a ten month gestation period.
I kind of wanted a more human appearance of the Anunaki people and not something out of this world because man was created in their image after all. So the scene here is where Inanna, goddess of love, fertility and war presents the the birth of Adam, the first human, to the committee.
Still kicking the lead around I see. Glad to see you still post here Kuraudo. Your last work is very impressive, cant wait to get to your level. I think the textures you applied to your paintings really helps them become alive! I would be honored if you helped me advance in my sketchbook sometime. =-]
Look forward to seeing more.
what is a Kuraudo anyway ?
sorry to miss you guys for last few weeks at Tuesdays.. that new newborn thing is crazytalk! hope we'll get to draw sometime before I quit out to Santa Fe..
best - kevin

omg the linework
I voiced a FUCK verbally when I scrolled over this
edit: what pencil did you use for those
That's incredible, the image as a whole and the detail up close, each face is so well executed, how each stroke is so glossy, it's almost as if the software had a built in wet paint simulator, so realistic..
*paws at the screen trying to feel the paint*
Nice work, I really like the little girl painting. Very solid.
Wow, sorry - the images of the 'birth' painting were still loading whilst I posted last! Incredible piece of work, looks like it set you back a few hours! Nice job..
love your works. well done
You're going to win this
the drawing of your newest painting really struck me. very well balanced line structures and composition, ornamental and organic forms. in the finished painting those qualities get lost somehow, and your values are not on the same level as your linework. especially the mid-tones are too dark i think and the dark tones too light, at least in many areas. nevertheless, great composition and drawing!
