awesome stuff, your line work is great! I really enjoyed your bug series and this last mech is agreat piece. Keep it up!
Man, your Understanding of anatomy and painting is off the hook! Holy shit.
@ JonHop - : ) thanks for looking Mr Hop
@ MrFrenik - I had to look-up the meaning of "planer surfaces" ... I'm happy that mine make you happy. Happy New year, if it's not too late to say..
@ Yemi775 - Thanks for your words boss. Still a long way to go though : /
Who says I only draw mechs ? : )
one thing that's not a mech
one thing that is kind of a mech
not a mech
@Flaskpost : ) wasn't planning to... but since you ask so nicely : P
I really need to do some material studies... everything looks like it's made out of the same stuff

it's a guy!
woah you got a really cool sketchbook here!! Love your character designs. And your lines look so confident. Looks great.
@Cabbage Caterpillar - thank you man
bugs and monster sketches
bit more life into one of the bugs
Just started, trying to paint straight to colour (after a line sketch) with no grey-scale / values to start with... attempting to get a cleaner, more confident look with actual painting and brush work. Early days.
bit of progress on that first guy.. and another sketch that I plan to paint in a similar way :
@Spudonkey - Thanks for your diggingness
Lost track of the "paint it clean" intention, and got distracted by trying to put some different lights on this guy
Very good creative work, mate, and the fact that you do it with such solid construction and understanding of forms to back it all up makes it that much better. And I hope me being a "scientist" isn't a bad thing, although sometimes it feels a little less creative than I should be, ha. Keep up the great work; definitely one of my favorite pages to check out here.
MrFrenik: Much thanks man. You say "mate" in Arlington? : ) And no, being a scientist is the correct approach, at least I think so more and more. Your creative stuff will be executed so much more easily and swiftly as you internalise your studies.
