Off we go kids, got your eyedrops handy this time?
Here is the silly bottle, from the back, with the quicky matte. I can't seem to find the front view on my HD, must be on one of my USB keys somewhere.
More from Loomis, Hogarth, interspersed with my own scrawl
Assignment I'm working on, a themed face card (Halloween, Jack of Spades) and deck back design. These are the initial roughs so far.
Strong anatomy studies. Good confidence in your strokes, it shows that you are grasping the concepts well.
The card design sounds like fun. You seem to have some neet ideas. I look forward to seeing how it turns out. Ironically I'm working on a similar project. I'm decorating my highschool graduation invitations and it's been interesting working on a graphic design project for a change of pace. I've never done one before so it has been a learning experience. Speaking of which, I should go post what I've come up with so far, in my sb.

Q-Caddlewick - it was fun to get into the vector part of it too, got to play around in illustrator a lot. I think I have the finished version nearby actually. will post it when i find it.
invincible - i'd say about 60% photos, 40% paint. bout 5 photos smushed in there. the card had to be done in a vector program, illustrator, so no paintyfun for that one. but I learnt a lot, so it wasn't as bad
now to all the sbs I have missed!
Awesome update, Auzzie!
Love these new alien head concepts. Dig those hand studies.
Awesome griffin and other assorted animals. I likes the eagle head above. Nice anatomy studies and alien concepts too. Sweet goodness!
Watch out for Piranhas
Fin! Long time no see!!!
Beautiful animal linework. Yer people are definitely getting better too.
One thing about that bottle tho'...you can see the label at the back which is saying the bottle is transparent, right? Then you popped it on a background, which you can't see through the bottle. Breaks the illusion of bottleness.
Cool stuff dude - Your drawings are really awesome!
Well done! Just keep it up like this.
Girl, you got some mean scribblins goin' down 8) Your animal studies rock. Your creatures are awesome -- that griffin! Your anatomy studies are fantastic, and you're improving by leaps and bounds. You're cool with the fontz, the planes... the bottles, even
Very cool SB
Look, see! Nifty art! http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=99803
Hey! Check out my blog here
latest stuff looking promising, nice variety of subject matter. the hogarth stuff is lovely too. keep it up!
is our group flagging slightly? do we need to inject some new blood or something..
Sorry to douse anyone's positivity, but it's all downhill from here. I just can't seem to concentrate or commit myself to anything, it was like that all last month, and it's just shithouse of me. 2 steps forward, 1 step back and all that (for now).
001 of 100 - "Introduction".
This recent piece is great. Nice work on the typewriter. How long did it take ya to do all those metal fin things? 0.0
hello! You've improved a great deal since you started this thread. You've got some lovely anatomical studies... keep doing hands and feet! Also, some of your critters are fantastic Lighting on the most recent griffin painting is really nice, though I don't think it's quite done... how much time have you spent on it?
overall, looks great. Keep it up!
Stuff is looking great as always; and the variety is subject matter is great also. The typewrighter piece is looking good too, however you might want to watch the cast shadow on the pictures. They don't seem to be affected by the typewrighter's shadow, making them sort of pop out wierd.
Sorry I haven't been around lately, I'll try to post more.
You have accomplished what every artist dreams of accomplishing. "Perfect Sketchs" I Think it is safe to say that you inspire any one that even glimpses at this sketchbook. Theres nothing i can say about this sketch book that is negative. well done!
Excellent lines and hatching. Good flow on the creature. On the faces watch the eyes, everyone, especially me, tend to draw eyes a little too large. I hear it is because we place so much importance on the eyes. It is especially easy to draw them large in profiles for some reason.
Hogarth studies look as though they are photocopies of the book almost. Good work. Hogarth is hard to copy because of his unique stylization.
Your anatomy studies are top notch as always. Its cool how you did a few loomis studies, and then moved to photo studies. Thats what those books are for, helpin us understand the concepts so that we can see them in real life.
Keep up the good work
really good studies going on here ! i esp like this one , the werewolve http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...7/aug07-04.jpg
do tons more of them ! keep it up
aviable for fulltime and freelance
Thanks guys. Yeah, there's always something wrong with the eyes in every face I draw. I don't mean to draw them big but they always end up that way. Icky. I guess time and progress will change my bad habits (hopefully).
Pages from the sketchbook, last couple days or so.
WIP for another poster assignment, got a thread going in the Sketches+WIPs forum here.
very cool faces. I like the ink style. What type of pens are you using for those?
Hogarths are well done, very confident lines. The one on top looks a little flat arount the trunk. Remember to show the form of the rib barrel.
The poster is looking cool. I look forward to seeing where you go with it.
