Take Two...


I've tried to bring out the eyes and drop the eyebrows back and fluffed up the 'tache a little

Nomadic Alien Tribesman - Speedpaint


Just to confuse everyone, even myself, of my style here is a speed paint of an alien nomadic tribesman. Why, you ask? why not I say. This took about 2 and a bit hours. I think this is what comes of browsing too much conceptart.org and CG talk speedpaint threads.

L'il Gods Preliminary Sketches




Here are some preliminary sketches for the Li'l Gods - I'm gonna give myself a few days distance from them then begin to give them their treatment. Once i've done that i'll post my old versions for a laugh :)

Money for old rope


So what happens when you run out of new ideas and fresh inspiration? you revisit an old project and revamp it. 'Li'l Gods' will just be a vehicle for me to do sketches, paintings and storyboard type compositions. They'll be no narrative yet but i'll be sure to explain the premise once I post the designs up. Though bear in mind that if inspiration strikes i'll be digressing from this until i run dry again:) In the meantime enjoy my new logo.

More Atlantis Action


I had so much fun doing the first I thought I'd do another... I dont really have any plans for these, they were just an excuse for creating mood and atmosphere, plus I'm trying strengthen my 'design language' i.e. making cool details on the fly.

Unda' Tha' Sea..


Here is a lil' Atlantis action, inspired by near death experience at the Barrier Reef. This took about 3 hours, I'm very satisfied with it but I do have a sore hand now :)

Another Bit of Bully...

SO, as promised here is the Minotaur in a style inspired by 'cheeks'. I quite like it, actually I like it alot. The one problem is that dispite appearences it actually is time consuming and it is pretty tough getting the lines fluid especially on a Wacom.

Minotaur

About an hour and a bits work - I'm very happy with it considering. I did this to explore the style which I'll use for my next mini project. Expect to see another one in a difference style very soon

Gordan's Alive!


So he's finished..I could go on, but I wont. Bit o f a mixed bag this one, from a painting standpoint I like it though I'm not keen on the sketch or the palette. What I will take from this is the confidence to not rely on my line work so much. Decent effort I rekon. Just gonna go back to PS and fix a hoof or two :)
