i like the second character alot, glad to see you starting a sketchbook
Haha ! fantastic stuff sept.
I love the mood on the first one. Not sure which of those two character's I'd rather meet, hehe.
As for crits. I don't have any at this point, but I hope to see more of your stuff here for sure.

Hey Sept! Really inspiring stuff right off the bat.
I totally dig the first forest/monster piece you put up. In trying to think of how to strengthen it thought I thought of a couple small points. Finding a way to veil the monster could add to the drama of the scene and tell a bit more of a story. In this case, the monster is emerging and the character is just noticing it along with the viewer. Also the flip and pattern of the trees seems to make the composition a bit stronger.
Just thoughts...I'd love to hear what you think!
heya.. i really dig that first painting but (always those buts) i believe brennan is totally right. the horizontal flip has a gigantic effect on your work. it is a promotion from super awesome to ultra atomic mega stunning i believe.
can't wait to see more from you. take care
Stellar beginnings to a sketchbook so far, your work feels like it has a heightened sense of epic idealogy waiting to come out in one of your pieces sooner or later. I'm looking forward to your progression, Sept.
Keep doing you
Hey Sept! Nice Thumbnails. It's easy to see potential in almost every one. Did you have some kind of common process for them? I noticed some look very ref'd from photo and/or movie capture while others look very abstract. Can't wait to see what's next.
hey hey, nice update.. the thumbs are showing some great depth! keep sharing. i'm coming back
Thanks mAkAm, BrennanPM, Towarlock and Vulgar
I used some national geographic references for the thumbnails, but mostly did them from head - that's why they became pretty repeative in the end, using the same compositions and tricks again and again.
I've been pretty busy with work but I've managed to get some spare time stuff done again.
I've just recently started to oil paint for the first time in my life, and it's a blast! Here's a few of my first observational paintings that I've done - I've got a long way to go, it's very confusing
I also added one digital enviroment sketch that I did some time ago but forgot to show anyone.
I'm glad I don't see anymore of those Marko Djurdjevic post-apocalyptic character copys of yours. But to say something positive, I really like that character in a space suit or what ever, but I think the other leg is too much faded out. Yes I realise the depth thing you're trying to accomplish but too much is too much.
HarvesterSam: I'm glad also, but it thought me alot so I don't regret it The leg looks wierd because I didn't know how to make it look any better.
Here's a collection of pictures again. One personal robot picture that I've managed to find time for. One oil study and rest are work stuff.
The snowy one's are for a intro of a show, I had 2 days to a half-day with each background.
You can view the whole animation here: http://sept13.org/talvi/joulukalente...on_081110a.mpg
Rest are for another project that I really don't know how to describe, backgrounds anyways.
Awesome stuff, love the environment paintings, wonderful colours and depth. Cool, keep it coming
Shoe studies are fantastic, I also appreciated that you posted those environment thumbnails. Its something I've been trying to grasp for a while and that looks like a very logical place to improve.
Also, I really enjoy the effect of that faded out leg, despite the complaints you've received.
Man i love those latest winter/mountain/spring(?) enviros!
Keep up the oil studies too! They'r lookig great.
some awesome stuff. thnaks for sharing, very interesting. the black and whites are sweet.
retardedmonkey: Mostly from grayscale to color, but usually only in the sketch phase. I'm no good in coloring and I don't want to repaint too much
The enviroment sketches were just study.
Here's a quickie before bed:

great SB sofar. i love the variety. the nipples on the uniform remind me of batman forever, but of course not as gay. that winter neighborhood reminds of 30 days of night kinda. sorry if u dont get these references lol
