More Perspective

Got to work more on the perspective. they take longer then natural environments and it's a little more ridged. However it's another discipline to practice.

Got out of a rut


Re-designed agent red from yesterdays post. Had a couple of days there of slow production. So I went back to basics and did some anatomy gestures to loosen up. Also went through the proper design process for myself. yesterday I wanted to paint straight to colour and to put it mildly: I got in my own way.  I got to design then render. I admire the people that can do the 2 at the same time. I'll work towards that, but for now here is what I got today. I wanted to do a quick one, this one took a little longer then I wanted. Got to work harder.
Had a good day today ;)

oh come on!

Another in my favorite subject: unfair fights. Struggled with this one. It went from a walker climbing a cliff to one standing in the water. Finally found something interesting and I was able to put this one to rest.  I need to work harder to not have this happen.

"all good things must come to a end"



Lost my job on Monday, here is a couple of things not really related to my job. A coder, and designer, and a artist got together and developed a idea. It wasn't Krome related it just happened at work. Here they are, the first 2 are the direction the guy in charged was happy with. The third was the original direction but after it was done it was decided to "darkish". he didn't want that much colour but colour full. The top 2 are how I tried to solve that problem. There was suppose to be a 3rd one in the set, a witch. oh well...

Cold spring Mech

Recently I got a good critic on my work. And one of the things mentioned was how I have a hard time  over working every part of the painting. I think part of it is insecurity over the painting not looking finished. The other is not planning well enough. So here I am trying to loosen up and control were I want the eye to go.
Also doing a lot of photo texture I had the impulse for some brush texture.

Bug armor


Couldn't finish this one on time over at concept art but it was the CHOW this week. Armor made form giant bugs. So this is me being 10 years old. I was looking at some inspiration form the McFarland toys so I think this one has that vibe.

From front to back

Industrial



Exploring and refining the process for more of this photo collage. One of the biggest challenges is hunting for the right textures lucky I came across, CG textures.com is a huge help.
Draw, find, copy, paste, colour correct, and the paint the crap out of it...repeate
