Alien (heavy type) line

Here another line sketch of an alien from the same race/clan as the one before.  He is the "heavy" type, more bulky and slow moving but extremely powerful.  I am doing this because I want to practice designing multiple characters that look like they fit into the same species/world.  I would imagine this is important in the industry. :)

Still working on environments....

Monday, August 22, 2011


With these I am trying to get the general values, mood, and composition established within a certain time frame (1 1/2 hours).  They are rough but I think I might be learning something.

Fire castles or something

Quick environment done tonight

Alien line/color

Okay so I wasn't really happy with the last post of this guy.  I feel too much was indicated and I wanted to really understand what he looked like and how his legs functioned.  So I tried a different technique using a line drawing.   This one is better and pretty quick in terms of time to complete.  Let me know what you think.  Thanks for looking!

Alien grayscale

Tried to come up with an interesting design for the alien sketch I did.  I like the idea of him having a mechanical lower body.  I plan on coloring this one.  thanks for looking!

Flamer paint WIP

I really failed the first couple times I painted this guy.  So I wanted to go back and give it another shot this time more painterly.  Probably still spending too much time in certain areas but I wanted the head to be a little more detailed than other parts of his body.  I am about an hour in and this is as far as I've gotten.  I'm going to try bigger blocker strokes for the rest of him so hopefully it won't take much longer.  I really want to get him painted in no more than 2 - 3 hours.

started working on this tonight... It's some form gate to another world or dimension.  The peeps walking towards are in a trance, sort of being sucked in.

battle at sea adjustments

I posted the first version of this a week or so ago.  This weekend I started watching some of Feng Zhu's videos and realized I don't pay enough attention to values; which is absolutely ridiculous...  I guess I have such a hard time with composition and story I forget about the basics.  The tones are much better in this version but they still could be better.  Oh well time for sleepy, I'm really glad I realized I was making these mistakes.
