You have a really distinct style man, it's awesome
I just noticed somethings I'll point out, maybe its just me...
the pirate dude on the first page with a sword, it seems the angle of the sword in his hand is way off?
and the girl in http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1260434135 and in the images below it, it seems to me that her neck is far too long and at a weird angle? I understand making the necks longer for expressive purposes (like the face group test things you did underneath it) it just seems that on top of it being extra long, the angle is a bit funky
thats all for constructive crits i guess, but i really like your work and the awesome line.
also, your logo work is great
Placeboast: Ha ha, thanks.
aks9: Yes, that "sword" on the "pirate" guy (I was going for more of a knife and undead cowboy look, ) is def off. It's like a bad movie prop. Yeah, those necks are insane... a tendency I have to rein in. In the colored version of the girl with the skull on her head, I've tried to remedy the bad anatomy. It's not done, yet, so I've still got some time to fix it. Thanks for taking the time to respond to my work. I appreciate it. And, thanks for the props on the logo work. I've been designing some beer cans for a company and hopefully can post those in the coming month or two.
Here's something I am working on. I drew it in pencil then "inked" it in PS. One of the first attempts at "inking" in PS. I like what I've seen other people get out of this method... like the Creaturebox.com guys. And, I had lots of fun with it myself.
It's totally, not done... just playing with it, right now. I may go blind.
So, I started inking stuff again... watched the N8 Van Dyke DLC and found out he was using the Tec-C pens and a brush pen... bought some, myself. It's been a long time since I've done ink work and admittedly, I was no Tim Townsend, before. But I enjoyed it, especially washes. So here's something I've done since I've picked it back up. I'll upload some past work, later, too.
lines look great, man! your work looks even stronger with the added contrast!
The Riddler: Thanks, man. Keepin' on, keepin' on.
Recently, I was fortunate enough to have Good People Brewing in Birmingham, AL ask me to do a poster for them. Good People makes some great brews that span the entire gamut of beerdom... IPAs, Stouts, Pale Ales, and more.
If you're in Alabama, stop into a bar or restaurant and ask for them.
Dang, sweet pencil skillz you've got! Me like a lot. It really makes your artworks feels smooth and organic I also like your designs, really neat and nice mix of the cuteness and modern stylistic art.
I'll definitely follow your sketchbook now on, so inspiring arts
First, here are the cans I designed for Good People Brewing in Birmingham.
Then, there's a sketch I've been playing with in Sketchbook Pro and PS.
And finally, a small ad I did for Good People Brewing.
Other than that, been busy... even some NDA stuff I hope I can post in the near future.
fantastic sketchbook, all i can say.
that last piece is pretty sweet, coloring it lost the reflective shine on the head tho, I thought that was cool in the B&W version. Creepy design
Do work! Sketchbook
I love these wooden creatures! Keep on posting!
p sage: Don't feed my ego... But, thanks!
Ellipses: The shiny was lost... glad you like it, though.
surus: I love wooden creatures. Will keep posting... wooden creatures, prolly, mostly.
new sketchy-sketch (same below): blog entry
AustenFM: Again, thanks for keeping up with my work!!!
This Friday is the Greenwood Artwalk in Seattle's Greenwood neighborhood. Urban Light Studios will be hosting the Potluck show... curated by my friend Solace. Lots of cool work to show and... it's a food drive. Check out this link for details on the many things going down for the show. Also, see below for the piece I will have in the show.
