takashmen, thanks. Ya, you are right with the values and edges...edgecontrol is something i really should try to learn. And you are right with the B/W/colo thing, i often start in b/w and use different blending layers to add color, just trying to work more often in color directly
Untouched, thank you!!
Overtoom, thank you a lot!!
MeteorCat, thanks a lot once more, and yeah, i try too
Nicky, thanks man, means a lot to me, i really try to improve my characters
Zauselbart, thanks a lot mate=)
Lucarky, 2 words...Thank you
Some goblin sketches/ideas from tonight for this weeks chow, just to get a bit into the topic, not sure yet if i will go on with one of them.
I'm not sure which one I like better they are both so superb. The woman's portrait is incredible. The strokes are so clean, the lighting so soft. We all have a lot to learn from it.
The snow on the mountains are a bit too blurry or too sharp towards the middle of the mountain I would just have it slowly fade into the ground of the mountain by putting together the subtle changes of colour and value. I personally am terrible at doing such things but just thought it might help. Everything else is just excellent.
MeteorCat, thank you a lot!! You are right about the snow, there was something bothering me too, but i did not figure out what it was and since it was just a colorpractice i did not care too much.
But maybe you are right, i ll give it a try
Another quick colostudy and some demonic speedsters for this weeks CoW.
Like those beastlies! Specially the shapes you created with them. very nice!
@LeaderOfZombies, thanks a lot. Basicly i worked a lot with pencil and a little bit with acrylics, so in fact i dont have any experience with traditional media besides pecildrawings at all
@ConnyNordlund, thanks you!!
@Wingal, Thanks a lot =)
Just a tiny update, but more will come soon
Some ideas for the actual CHoW.
those chow concepts... fuuuuuuuck. so sweet! how long for these? did you spend a lot of time studying armor first? or have you already, and just went off imagination? because these are intense. very cool ideas, especially that chain mase dude. damn. he would so keep anything out of heaven. even mother theresa.
Hey Nicky, thanks a lot man =) To be honest i have no idea how long they took. I did them during some breaks from my job on two days, but some hours for sure... Did not use any references this time, dont know why, its something i usually always do. Just played around with some shapes and forms until i had something i liked and ya, did lots of armorstudies in the past already
Some process on the chow piece...
Thank you for commenting my sketchbook, I appreciate that very much! Impressive stuff, your enviroments are great and your King of Hell is absolutely amasing =)
Really inspiring, I love your style.
Thanks Vulgar =)
Some sketches, tried to do some linedrawings again, did not do any for ages, definitely need to practice this more often and concentrate better on lineweight and so on...the enviro is inspired by a sketch from jonas de ro, did not try to copy it, but to get a similar mood in a short amount of time. The last one is my start on the current chow, hope to finish it in time.
Great character and monster designs, really digging them
Keep it up!
