Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous stuff! Love your creatures and beasties...!
I looked at yours, now you look at mine...sketchbook here

these are really great. i love your people, and the thumbnails way back in the beginning are great, pumping out those thumbs can be really tough some times.
some of your life drawing, the shoulders look tight, like the person is shrugging for no apparent reason.
the colors you use are awesome, i wish i could use something other than white and black for different values =D.
looks like you get carried away with blurring sometimes, don't forget about the hard edges!
Thanks guys, for the really encouraging comments!
jdeegz: ya, i agree with everything you said. I always seems to have stiff poses and can't get away from that. lol, and yes... I've been working on trying not to over blur things. I think it is going to take some more practice.
A fat scareCrow... Fun little exercise at work.
I was playing around with some of the filters in photoshop and thought it came out pretty cool.
hey man, really nice stuff, diggin the digi painted characters and monsters.
...altho the use of a tad bit more ref in some of them would have helped (like in the bee one)...imho you should play with some photo overlayed textures as well, to get some quck texture on top of your rendered guy that can be reworked on another layer on top...would have been neat on the buffalodile
WIP... little smurf village. I'm trying out what TheGnoll suggested with some overlayed photos on top. It's already made a huge improvement in my early steps, but i may try to add some more. ;-) go crazy with it.
and this was my failed attempt at the COW... Artic Dino. I started the sketch awhile ago, but never got back around to finishing it. Figured i'd post what i got.
Hey there fury,
You got all the stuff in here. Cool critters, environments, and interesting characters. yeah that last environment looks good and photos are very fun to mess with. You got some nice lighting going in there also. Keep drawing and painting. Nice work!
Great stuff. Especially like how you handle colours and light. Also really nice concepts.
One thing I noted; You seem to avoid to draw feet. Dont be afraid, they usually dont bite.
Awesome. As many have said already: I really like your creatures. More please. ^_^
Wow... so many replies. Really encourages me to draw more! Thanks Guys!
Dranyer- thanks! I don't know what is was about that coconut crusher, but i really liked that one too. I seem to start those weekly challeges too late and don't finish.
Gib- lol, i don't know about you... but the feet i draw usually bite. So i try to hide them . Good observation though, ill work on that
WIP Here's the latest cow, Catapult creature...
Wanted to do a smaller critter that maybe flips/catapults small stones or pebbles to make its shelter. I was thinking that the large abdomen (butt) area would be the center of gravity and use the large back legs as anchors. While the front head area is more a wedge shape to slip under the rocks and the thinner but longer front legs would be used like a springs. I was thinking more like a sucker fish for the food... where its mouth would be under its head and feeds off the algae and plants along the floor.
Still need to finish it... but the process so far
Nice paintings & Z sculpts;
Loved the paint of "Coconut crusher" & model of "Old boy"
Cool sketches in ink;
A perfect 5 star rating for this one.
Maybe you should post all your painting in the "Finished works" category.
I don't think you need to post the doodles of human stick figures, unnecessarily hikes up the loading time;
Massive cool stuff. Your catapult creature is comming along nicely.
My path of learning (sb)
Thanks guys for the kind words! I got several sketches from my sketchbook that i haven't scanned in yet...
but... in the mean time. This is the final for the Catapult Creature. Arrrg... i was pretty frustrated on this on. Didn't really come out the way i wanted... I think i need to spend more time in the thumbnail stage to get a more dynamic image. but whatever. I am happy i finished it before i go on vacation tomorrow.
Concept: South American Black Stone Ant
Located throughout the forest floors of South America, the Black Stone Ant catapults small stones or pebbles to make its shelter. These shelters usually take several years to possibly the life span of the insect to finish. The large abdomen area and rear legs have been due to ages of evolution and have become an anchor for the catapulting procedure. The front head is more a wedge shape to slip under the rocks and thinner but longer legs are used as springs. The black stone ant feeds off the algae and moss that grows on the damp wet forest floor.
wow you have so much work! i love your sketches and digital art. you used great detail in both. i am very impressed and inspired. i have never seen creatures like yours, they look scary and freaky yet some are cute lol. great job and good luck on future projects.
You've got some great stuff going on here, Fury!
Your creature designs are fantastic! I''l definitely be following this thread. Keep up the great work, dude!
what a fuckin awesome start to a sketchbook! your creature designs blew me away. you're pretty good with environments as well. got anymore detailed enviro sketches/paintings? if not, you should tackle those since character design is definitely your strong point. focus on your weak points.
Got today off and decided to doodle a little.
A weak spacecraft... First one i've really ever tried to paint. I used some techniques from a couple of video's i watched... using the ink blot brush, trying to find shapes out of random brushes....
Just started this enviro about 20 mins... hopefully have some progress on it tonight.
Your pencil work is killer. Your digipaintings are pretty awesome too. Try adding. Nothing really to criticize here.
Very nice start for your sketchbook keep at it man your doing a great job love the peices.
