Awesome stuff as usual!
I especially like the study with the 3 people and the wave.
Nice values, good feeling of form.
I feel lazy now looking at all the studies you've been doing haha :/
hey dan i got an idea. Cos you live in cape town I heard there's heaps of sharks there. You could get some sponsorship to do a stunt where you get a waterproof laptop and wacom setup and paint some sharks from life, underwater. Would be a guiness world record or something.
just a thought

Nice update D@niel!you can never have to many mechs.
The whole muscle rib cage looks really cool, makes for a good focal point.
Until next time -Omerta
sketchbook updated October 6th
hey man, this is my favorite mechanical man ive seen so far...
right now the robot doesn't feel grounded properly.. it seems like the foot on the right should be closer to us compared the the other one, it also feels a little to small in comparison. so yeah that that part looks kinda confusing to me
keep up the great work!
Nice post! Really solidly painted If I can say ooone thing though, it's to be a little careful about where you put certain pieces of machinery. You can definitely get away with loads of stuff in science fiction design, but that big pneumatic extender he has linking his forearm to his ribcage may work if there's a ball joint on either end, but it will still limit his range of movement to the bottom half of the rotation of his shoulder. It's a little outside the range of what you can get away with.
Like I say though, awesome paintjob and you really have an eye for nice colours! That's something I could learn from in all honesty.
Keep 'em coming!
Really good colors man!
"The superior man is distressed by the limitations of his ability; he is not distressed by the fact that men do not recognize the ability that he has."
beautiful bot duder, the lighting is fantastic. However I'd have to agree with Christian about the actuator in the arm, if it linked above the elbow (with a second from the upper arm to the forearm, similar to the legs) it would be much more realistic.
no doubt you paintings are the hotness
this book is sick!
Man I don't check it out for a couple of days and all of a sudden it's, phhhhhhheeeeeeeew offffffffffff, wohayafyaufsbbb!!!!!!
Awesome paintings as usual.
That last robo kicks metal ass with his eyes closed.
Msn? I promise I won't try to steal your skills and stuff lol.
Keep up the great work
I wish I could get as good as you faster. I think that your skin tones are terrific, I can never get them well. What's your trick? Do you paint in black and white and then use a layer with some blending mode, or do you go directly to the colors? What's should I look for when coloring skin? Which parts should I look for the scattering?
Sorry to bother, but I love how you do that stuff.
