hey King! i too just went through your older pages and i am sorry that i havent taken the time to do so before, the difference from page 1 to this page is unreal. consistent progress and hard work man. big respect.
also, i found this gem on page 10! ...
haha this is definately false now. keep it up man!!
Hi mate, thanks for visiting again. Every time you drop by the old sketchbook is a massive motivator.
What you are explaining in your latest post is something I too try and consider more an more. Whatever the subject matter is, how you portray light is what will make the piece.
Oh yeah, love the industrial stuff you're making lately.
Keep it up man.
Hey King' ;D ! So I think I'll go for some shape hunting by watching around sometimes and leaving my mind see whatever he wants ^^
Cool stuff Mate ! I'm always impressed by the way you are capable of rendering light and volumes on shapes !
Can't Wait to see the next update!!
Based on these images methinks you'd do a bad ass scorpion from Mortal Kombat (or just about any of the characters for that matter). Great work man.
whaaaa... such lovely forms as always king. the post about random design in #3565 was really informative. i can see it as an approach for a jump-start to designing something if you feel you don't have a solid plan. but i think the overall emphasis is on readable form and the importance of values as you mentioned... which prompts me to do more investigations and studies of value and form. gaaaahhh! so much to do
looking forward to the next update
will123will-haha lol mate, we are all good as long as we keep up, so lets both keep up !!!
MadGrav-Thank you very much mate!! Thats encouraging
phiq-Thankiees mate !!! glad you like them
cumquat-ehhe thats good to hear mate , although i will keep working hard to improve. I am glad you like them, however i am still in a tight period so i havent done much work in progress stuff etc. But very soon
NickyBeats-ahahha man, thanks for digging that out . Well i suppose i could do a better looking character saying the same thing now . Hahah i always trying to make my sketches pushing me more hahaah. Thanks for checking it out mate
Rotor-Hey mate no problem man, thank you very much , you are doing great, we have to keep up . Yeah it seems like it, sometime i will try the research a little more by using reality images, so that i can focus more on thinking rather than rendering a random form.
zou-Yooo mate thanks very much, also dont think i am not doing the exercises, i already did the body language but when i am studying i am making things rough because i try to get the essence. Thanks very much for lots!!!
~KJK~-Parsaaaa!!! Thanks mate!! I have skype, its hmmm kingkostasart, kostas art ahhaha never exactly remember it, but try to find something like that and being from greece and it will be me. In case this doesnt work tell me your name so that i can add you . I am very glad to see you back, and you are doing some really interesting pieces!!!
Izzual-Izzzz !!! Love your enthousiasm , you will improve in no time.Shapes doesnt necesarrily need to represent something to be used, keep that in mind. If i take a random[mostly negative] shape i see now in the void between two objects next to me, i can drop it inside a composition and somehow i can use it. I am telling you this so that you dont lose the loose use of this aspect. But focus more on values and all this knowledge will fit lovely like a good puzzle. Thanks very much !!!
Juniversal-heeheh thank you very much mate . I havent done any fan art, i maybe need to do sometime.
teapo-Mike thank you very much mate!!! Yeah do the invenstigation. Values are really important.Hahaha yep so much, but maybe it make things less boring
Ok mates first thanks so much for supporting that much even when i am absent.
Unfortunately these days i had a lot of work and the free time was going to non art stuff. Also i got a fever and got me down.
Also some very encouraging stuff happened. I got featured in http://theroundtablet.com/tag/konstantinos-skenteridis/ in the inspiration category and also in http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...levant_count=1 and that made me very very happy and was encouraging. Also it was a good proof that we have found what was missing back then and was added to that piece that made it look finished [it was details -myth busted- lol ]
Ok here something just to show signs of life. Also i had visited the critique section the past days, and did some paintovers, and also found that the guys have organized an awesome collective of paintovers, so maybe you want to go check it out !!!
LETS ALL KEEP UP!!! good night
I really like this last one mr Kostas. the text/title/ thing... made me laugh a tiny bit.
If anybody knows or have the contact stuff to the most wonderfull singer in the known universe please give her this... plxOr
Baconstrap-ahhaah thanks very much mate , glad you like it !!!
Flaskpost-heheeh thankiees very much mate, seems to be a common destination then !!! lets keep up
Ok here something work in progress. 2hours in it so far. Ofcourse i have to finish the battle mage and will do soon. I think from tommorow i should have more time
Lets all keep up!!! Good night
Kingkostas – thank you for the support on my sketchbook! Your comments are most appreciated.
Sorry for stalking your sketchbook all day; i've been going through it whilst at work all day. So far on page 90, it's like eating too much chocolate cake, it's really good, but too much in one go will make you feel sick! (that's a compliment btw) \o/
The fu*k is this man, do you think I have time to look at 120 pages?
Oh well, let's see, page 1...
ps. your paintover for Kevin_ was sick, I got a lot out of that.
kevin_-Thank you very much man!!!! !!
~KJK~-Heheh thanks mate, i already kept with it . Will work on it some more.
Dayle-ahahahh thank you very much mate !!! Sometime soon i will compile some of the works i did before coming to Conceptart.org, they will be ugly but interesting to see hahaha
Kvetch-hahahahah thanks very much mate !!! Well at least you will laugh with the crappy things of the early pages
Ok here worked more on this piece. I may try to contact some of these companies that do these card games and try to get some freelance. Will see.
Ok this piece has lots of problems but i will not fix for example the anatomy ,i should had fixed it in the beginning.
Lets all keep up!!!Good night
Hey King' !
Thanks a lot for the advices !
You've done cool stuff lately ! (sorry I was off for 3 days, went to Paris to rush museums etc... ^^), your last character is great, you feel it's rushing on you !
I also must admit that I nearly fell in love with your last "good night speed", there's such an atmosphere in it
KEEP IT UP MATE !
Izzual-ahhha thanks very much izz . welcome back
Kungfoowiz-Edward!!! Thank you very much mate!!!

The left arm of the warrior girl in the previous post looks a bit busted
Sorry about no comments for a while... your thread moves fast and has great work all the time. I started to watch your battle mage video a while back and it was going great Thank you for posting it.
You're keeping up great! The lighting in this latest one looks very good for a quick one.
Wow Mate the second environment and the creature are great ! I really appreciate the fact that you are pushing more details in your stuff because both of them look "polished" and finished, by the way you have captured a gecko/lizard expression for your little guy, he looks to be existing ! ;D
Keep the great work up King' !

Flaskpost-Hello mate, thanks very much!!! I start loose, working with values, and when i have a composition that i like, i push the values in greyscale. I will upload some thumbnails i did for the eow. For example when i will pick the one i like, i will simply keep up pushing the values and refining.
ok here some thumbnails. Not lots of stuff to show because i am thinking/experimenting more rather than painting ahahah, trying somethings to improve my values.
Lets all keep up!!! Thanks very much for supporting!!!
