Here's a concert poster i'm working on;
i'm aiming to have it done by next weekend. I'd love to hear your crits and comments
Still working on this thing; soon as I get home.
I think i'm done with this one.
WIP for cow 232. Elephants get the short end of the stick in COWs
Your imagination is briliant. You have bunch of awesome ideas and I'm impressed how you draw all this monsters like they really existed.
The acceleration a of a body is parallel and directly proportional to the net force F and inversely proportional to the mass.
MY SWEET SKETCHBOOK
a little more progress
I like the values and the tone of the first sketch with the dead elephant better.
Granted the pose of the elephant is better in the third version but somehow the picture is too bright then and the eery horror athmosphere from the initial sketch is lost. I´d love to see you work that over. The light blue ends of the pincers just don´t sit well with me. But that´s just me. Feel free to disregard all that and do whatever you want.
just do it
A tutor once said to me: "Let your mind go!" and it didn´t come back.

Thanks bbwolf; You're totally right about the lighting. It's really unclear and too bright, really killed the contrast. I think this last COW (also in a cave) works a little better. Thanks so much for the crits!
Forgot to post last weeks COW. I'll get that up soon!
some sketches for my next COW
more robot thumbnails
bug photo study
Worked on this abomination a bit more
Another batch of robot thumbnails and spaceships.

quick portrait of a friend, pretty happy with the likeness at least.
Here's an old still life I just found on a flash drive
COW entry: Elementals
3hr still life:
You've got some great monsters in here man! Maybe try doing some more value studies and thumbnails just to really push you dramatic camera angles and lighting. If it doesn't work on a thumbnail, it won't when it's full size. If you start out really rough with no fear or restraint, then start to carve something out of it. It's not only fun, but for me it really made a difference to the quality of my stuff. Peace!
Nice and entertaining creatures, and I like the mech design - a pleasure to scroll through.

theUnknownSketcher- Thank you for your kind word!
GEB- Great advice. You are a values wizard! I feel like I learn much by looking at your process.
dan liimatta- OMFG; thankyou for looking at my peon sketchbook!
You guys are my hero(s); thanks so much for stopping by! Got some more robots on the way soon. Been taking a break from competing in COW but I should have some time for that this summer.
I really like the colourwork you put into your imaginative works.
Like has already been mentioned, work on your technical skills like general construction and valuework as well as building that image library of how things work and look in your head. These pieces show great promise, some of your concepts are just nuts.
