here 's mine. The really bad part is that the dude doesn't even realise how evil his behaviour is :surprised

ahhh I have Electric light orchestra in the cd player here, I'm rocking on my chair here! :beer: :bounce: great band

anyhows..

J_Grieve & Telemaco: heh... cool concept
Jeroentje: Cool how you managed to create something great with very few lighted area's..Cool brushes too.

Would be cool if someone could give me some pointers on how to improve my sketches.. THey look kinda flat.. what am I doing wrong?

Jeroentje: Great sketch! I like the lighting a lot!

Garma: Try using greater contrast to bring certain things more to the front or put them in the back. Try to figure out where the light sources come from and try to create the shadows accordingly. Dont be afraid to experiment. But most of all, keep practising! You'll get better each time.

as to what the story is. well if I've learned anything to draw then you should be able to tell (: if not then i gotta work harder and learn how to tell a story thru an image :P either way im drawing:D

o well hope you guys enjoy!

Great work from everyone today, my favorites hav e to be jeroentje's very well drawn dark guy ;)

10 minutes sketch. 45 Minutes coloring.
http://zzacmann.250free.com/ZacEvilTwin.jpg

Im not really sure how I came up with this or whether eating paint chips all day contributed to it, but it was the only sketch I did today that I was satisfied with.

I tried to show one brother being very strong and a little devilish with very strong, angular lines and expression. The other brother, on the other hand, is very meak with very light and shallow features and expression. Almost as if the brother on the right is sucking the life out of the one on the left.

Since they are twins, I didn't want to draw there appearance completely different. I tried to create the feeling that they may have once been identical but due to hunger of power of one, the other has suffered and these attributes over time has been reflected in their physical development.


Okay, I don't know what I just said either. Maybe it will make more since in the morning.

Pencil sketch and ink 10 minutes, I then traced it with vectors to try to get better lines which took another hour or so and then colored it for another hour. Ain't perfect but its more complete than other stuff I submitted. Oh, I used a shadow filter around the robot just to speed things up after several hours in front of the PC my wife was giving me looks like an evil twin. ;)

I'd really like to work on this some more, but it's 4 AM and I promised myself I'd go to bed. Played a bit with a new style, tried to incorporate the image more into the background (something which I am terrible at doing). I kind of wanted guy in white to fade downward, with the guy in black juimping out of the picture. A little intense for something I only ended up spending and hour on.

AgentD: I dont really get it, but a great sketch none the less! Indeed very dark city-ish.

bumskee: awesome, great perspective. I like the loose shading.

AJ_23: Good one! Made me laugh.

Kieronh--love that idea.

Goro--you totally rule--as always, the concept and the painting are fabulous. i'd really be interested in a walkthrough/tutorial on your technique (beyond the fact that you draw way better than i do :D )

bumskee--cute idea, and nice drawing.

oh, and my pic-- i got so excited by all you guys, i forgot it :blush: PS 1.5 hours

thanks :) I saw it myself too and that's awesome (to see yourself improving, that is).

It was meant as a quick sketch to practice some techniques so I sort of forgot facial expressions.

@Agent D: you make me curious... could you tell us the story? looks interesting..

Ilikesoup
06-11-2004, 03:34 PM
Poop! My first draft had too many smilies so I gotta start over. I'll be brief this time.

First, thanks to RobertoOrtiz for posting our first weekend assignment. Hope we're not interfering with your weekend.

Goro -- I love that each days topic can be performed by your "Bot Theater".

AJ -- I had to reread yours 3 times before I got the joke. Then I fell on the floor laughing.

Agents J and D, I still can't get, but that's just me :cry: Agent D's reminds me of the Corinthian from the Sandman "Doll's House" story line. The Corinthian cut out and ate eyeballs, but I don't remember him with a twin or a flamingo.

DaKingPen's evil twin makes me most nervous.

Bumskee -- Love the perspective and lighting, like she's got the "flashlight below the chin" creepy effect.

bupage -- I know that evil wife look. I get it at 1am when I'm still trying to upload my images.

Great work by everyone. And welcome aboard to Sir_Rubberduck.

jeroentje & Supervlieg - especially love the lighting, one of many things I have to experiment with more.

AJ_23 - I love this clean illustration style

Goro - my first quick impression was that this was a 3D render -cool

Flatuloso - You captured thier naturewell in the facial expressions.

Sneeking a minute here at work -gotta go before the boss gets m.... arggghhhh!

Agent D
06-11-2004, 08:11 PM
Great work everyone, this topic was quite interesting. Thanks for the comments! I went to bed, so sorry for the delay in explaining, mine was a bit obscure. I don't know if any of you have played the game Max Payne, or remember that there were a couple of TV shows playing inside the game? Anyway, Max Payne 2 expands a lot on that, and that's "John Mirra", the villain from "Address Unknown", which is a surreal series about someone who chases his evil serial-killer double around a city. It includes a demonic talking flamingo.

Good guesses though, it does look a lot like a Stranger or The Corinthian (thanks for reminding me to do a portrait of him some time.) You guys have good taste in movies and comics. ;)
