What was it again?(no)
kungfoowiz: I think that a lot of the stiffness can be attributed to the lack of flexibility in that armor. thanks
zelda_geek: Naa never too harsh, I wish there were more comments like this I think if there's any reasoning for the lack of contrast, it's because I painted it very overcast so I didn't think there was much to reflect. Definitely get what you mean though, I was struggling with the light source in the picture to start with too. Thanks for the comments!
A couple more armor studies. These were.. not really faster, but easier?
quickie self portrait different method, but I look a lot older:
fukkking sick study!i just went through page1 through 9, lol amazing work. how long did it take you to finish the armor studies?

Eightball_: Thanks man!
loooong due imagination piece. not 100% happy with it but I think I'll stop here. I'm just glad I was able to get something from my head. originally for the alice chow, but then took too long.. ahh i need to plan better, like seperating the figure from the background layer .
still life why are you so difficult..
probably abused the blur here
and some arms from bridgman from a week or so ago.

don't be to hard on your self ha ha. dude i always love the armour so cool and shiny!
lancer_idenoure: thanks man, I have some imagination stuff working but it's usually pretty bad so I don't post it up.
Figures from photos
Uhh reverse storyboarding. Clearly I didn't know what I was doing with these.
Then I tried doing a complete scene but died about thirty seconds in.
master study of frank frazetta
So I got some downloads from the sale going on.. I didn't think they would help this much. But after watching Jason Chan's thunderdome one, I felt super inspired. AND it made me realize there was a hardness slider on the brush menu. Seriously wtf, how did I not notice that. It's such a useful adjustment tool.
Anyway, I thought this CHOW was a lost cause at first but after watching the download I got pumped to do stuff and pushed this out. I think it's my best piece I've done so far. Saving my other downloads for when the inspiration runs a little drier.
The Beastmaster (penguins lol)
all from imagination (after some research sketches, posted below)
character sheet+silhouettes+couple research sketches.
I completely forgot about the front/back thing for this so it was actually done after I completed the illustration. Kind of defeats the purpose but yeah, just rushed it.
Pen sketches from life (maybe I'll try doing these daily?)
summer assignment for school, and I actually found it quite useful. messed it up a bit but eh, maybe I'll try again.

something new! Trying to "build a visual library" so I'm just gonna do sketches of random topics everyday. Crossbows:
then trying to draw some crossbow-type weapons from imagination.
sketchy stuff from life
hands from life
hands from imagination.. I guess I wasn't paying enough attention during the studies.
Hey bro =)
I'm happy you had fun with the Chow picture =) It looks qwl and you seem happy it's your best piece so far =) Hope you don't mind my paint over.. =) Tried to add some drama to the character =) Just embellished her.. not sure what you think.. but hope it helps or gives you some ideas.. =) Okay.. good luck with your next studies bro, keep well for now =)

Wanderer: thank you
So I had a bit of a mini-slump but I got over it.
I think I was just over doing the planes, so I'll probably stop with them after this for awhile.
trying to understand the anatomy of them? and focusing just on lines over rendering.
didn't help here because I practically ignored/forgot everything when doing this haha. (from imagination)
and i need to draw more from life. I always tell myself this but end up regressing to photos
i left and the light changed before i could really push this one
my last post for about a month? I'll be off in Hong Kong until the end of August. wooo time for lots of drawings on the bus haha.
freehand perspective stuff
figures from photos
sp! didn't really finish the shirt because this was done over a couple of days.. and the shirts kept changing..
figures from imagination

jeremy: haha I can't see any work worth putting in a folder.
Ven S: thanks
back and didnt draw that much. here are some sketches from life I did while over there. In chronological order, so that you can see a little bit of improvement.
Excuse the speech bubbles, just put in when I was bored haha.
