...here comes more chapters from the epic struggle Me VS. The Pencils
First some character portraits, trying to sneak in some material variation(from 1 to 2) i my pencil rendering. Still got to work on that, maybe a still life study or more with object with big variation in value and materials will help. Will see.
Short background;;These are some members of militaristic, religious, technological empire invading the land of the more closer to nature more primitive natives. (influenced by folklore and history)
I personally kinda like the second one. Third one was supposed to be something like priest-commander or higher rank scholar. Forth one is just crap.
Ok this was part of the speed sclupt session some people do at work on a random topic, I decided to join with a sketch that I latter tried to finish at home. It got a bit rough and messy at the end.
Any critics and suggestion on how thing can be improved are welcome.
Hello all haven't posted in quite awhile. I've been overloaded with work from the start of the year, and didn't have too much time for personal studies or work. I hope this will be changing. So here are some assorted sketches and studies showing really well how chaotic and unsystematic I can be, for now, later I'll try and dig up more stuff to post so stay tuned.
Some more organic machinery rendering practice, obviously not enough, need to try and flesh out more complete characters. Also to do some more volume studies form life, maybe some still life drawings would help, I never did much of these.
Messing around with some random creature thumbs.
I got a nice little architecture history book for a present some time ago, and started with the bold plan to go trough it and do some studies of most periods of element that I like. I ended up miserably with those few.
Couple of thumb I did from life yay ! Me drawin real architecture and not some crappy photos, I always dreamed to do that, unfortunately that was my only chance for the last several months.
Some feet stylization studies I did from some of "openanewworld"s drawing
Poses, there are never enough of those, It's all fine at this size, bu I HAVE TO rise the format a bit, I still feel a bit lost when I try to do something even as big as A4, to used to doodling messy thumbnail most of the time
Here are some people I sketch from time to time when I'm not feeling lazy, on the station while waitin for the train in a my tiny pocket sb
Some more from the same sb(I've got the feeling some of them might be quite old)
And finaly some mech doodles, I accidentaty foud out tha robot are fun, I might even develop an addiction...but more on that later
God damn sir! You have sufficiently kicked my brains ass. Absolutely love your pencil work, everything from your super rough pieces to your super fleshed out ones. Your character, armor, vehicle designs are top notch!
Thanks for the inspiration, i hope you update a lot more often!
Hello again, this time I'll try harder with the updates, here are some more recent studies:
Some torso stylization studies from J. Jones and Frazetta, also practicing the use of more soft brushes.
Quick colour studies from various photo reference. Those were fun should do more. I got the idea of making qick sqary shwatchlike studies from robogabo(I just wish I was that systematic and persistent).
Studies from various artist, those wre realy educational, I learned alot doun those.
Chupacabra - I hate to hear NCsoft Europe also shut down, hopo you and the entire bunch of talented guys the foud a nice ne place to work. About the drinks, what do you think about this saturday?
DanielC - thanks man, you pencils are a major inspiration for me!
everyone else - thanks a alot, for the nice words, I'll do my best to get this sb up and running again
Here come the robots! Here's one heavily Evangelon inspired, unfortunately not even half as cool as the EVAs. I tried to finishsh thing faster with fewer brush strokes, still way to go. This one ended up messy as usual:
- a lot of undefined volumes
- questionable lightsouce
- random cast shadows
- messy background(in kinda bad way)
- unidentifiable surface matterials
Wow i finally found your SK Georgy. When i first saw your flying Tribune, beholder and that awesome flying machine art i was shocked. Your other art is ze best either. Maybe i fell in love with those machines cause this is my favourite subject. Dont' even think that you are lazy. I'm looking often to your work for inspiration. I will keen an eye on your SK.
Yes, I'm back, I have some pretty serious reasons for being away from my sketchbook for so long. I'll explain later, when I can provide some visual proof . For now let's say I'm active again and I'll try to catch up and post most of the stuff I managed to do in the past months. For now here's this evenings doodle. A quick improvisation, decided to try end record a video, still trying without any success to crop it and resize it(it ended up being quite huge). Hope to be able to upload it soon.
Also another thing I finally managed to get my blog up and running feel free to check it out, and drop a comment or critic, I'm trying to update it almost on a daily basis. http://calader.blogspot.com/
And this is not the only blog I've been up to recently. I starter the dev blog of one of my personal projects I'm doing with a couple of other guys. I sitll have tones of content and art to post there. http://neomartyr.blogspot.com/
