You have some great work in here. The vibrancy of your colors kicks ass!!! I always envision that type of work in my head but my colors come out muddy and desaturated, lol. Keep up the awesome work man.
wow so many comments, thanks very much guys. i'll reply to everyone
Choob - Fernanda made a color sketch of the girl's face, she has a particular way of painting them that i really enjoy. i then took it and started destroying it then the psd went back and forth a couple of times. pretty organic workflow, nothing serious.
Mactire - thanks very much man, glad you enjoy it!
telohs - thanks very much!
Adrian - thanks man but i'm still very very far away from where i want to reach. still mountains of work ahead!
rich4rt - thanks man
sergeantcrow - thanks man! keep playing with them!
Here's a quick portrait i made of my "little sister" . About an hour and a half of playing around
That collab in #1287 is awesome. Your pencil work reminds me of my own style, except yours is better... makes me want to start a pencil sketchbook. There's something more bold and decisive about your rendering and brushwork in your recent work, I love it. Did you use any 3D program for the 'Tower Bridge' or is that just photoshop?
Wow, last two updates are really great. This incredible and very thin transformer of a plane is delicious!
I had a question about this.
How do you manage to get all the perspective right within all the tiny details (roof tiles, wooden boards on the bridge connected to the tower, all the blocks etc)? When I try to use perspective lines for so many and so small details I just end up with a messy jumble of lines
hey guys, thanks for the questions and comments
Gadbury - i'm actually just recovering my pencils, i took a 2 year long break from pencils and drew only in ballpoint pens, i think it builds your confidence a bit because there's no room for error and you can't really erase the mistakes. I didn't use any 3D for the tower bridge, i wanted to do so initially but maya didn't start for some reason so i just drew it all from scratch on livestream.
Kerah - getting those things right is just a question of practicing your perspective. Also, usually if the main blocks are correct in perspective, everything you add that abides to the same rules will be correct. As for all the little details, there are some textures used, the roof tiles and rocks are textures on top of which i added a pass of render / wear / painting for integration, much like the regular pipeline for game assets.
I absolutely love your tower concept art above.
You're quickly approaching pro level.
I wonder, and you don't have to answer but... have you gotten any good offers yet?
I must say these planes are sexy Really admiring your digital skills.
awesome planes. Like hu-ha said: your digital skills are great :-) keep it up man!
