First concept rough for one of the robots!
But David.. what's the concept?

Stay tuned and you'll find out! :)

A composition sketch / tryout.

But David.. Thats all pencils!

Yes my young padawan. I'm using the ancient technique of pencils!

Going to Vietnam soon, hopefully can upload some more stuff before than.

06-27-2009, 04:02 AM
These look great so far. I love the way you sketch.

06-28-2009, 10:55 PM
That is just awesome the way you handle pencils.

How do you deal with the perspective on such large and complex creatures as the robot?

This is one of the best challenge entries I have seen so far.

Cheers and God bless.

06-29-2009, 12:34 PM
Nice going so far, mate. Any details about the story? :)

07-01-2009, 12:39 AM
Thanks guys!!

Blender Fan:
Something like that only works if you go completely in to it. I can't always do it, but when I'm in the right state of mind I can just see how it should be, it's like the whole robot is 10times as big and 3d dimensional. When I saw the drawing again later I was surprised how small it was (weird with something you made yourself).
Fuzzy explanations I know, sorry about that. Basics is: get into the right flow.

Hey Mikey! (are you stalking me? ;)) Thanks. Haha, I'm not giving away everything yet, gotta keep some surprises. But: it involves cool robots, possibly aliens and an invasion.... with a twist... more soon!
Hopefully I'm able to do some more soon. But it's crazy at the moment! I'm getting ready to Art Direct a project in Vietnam, so a lot of arrangments need to be made for that. Next to that a few jobs, this competition and that all while traveling and sleeping in busy hostels... :P (but I'm not complaining, I like my life!).

Cheers guys!

Start of the lineart. Normally i don't really do lineart for digital images, but somehow i'm really into lineart lately. Great way to sharpen my lineart skills :).

Now the final concept is known and out there its time for the final sprint. Hopefully I get enough free time the upcoming days to make this image as I envision it. :)

Good luck everyone!

07-28-2009, 07:00 PM
Wow!! great sketches!!! Really hope to see your final piece.

Good Luck!!! :thumbsup:

07-28-2009, 07:03 PM
Looking good so far David! Can't wait to see your piece finished with your lovely style of coloring!



07-28-2009, 07:06 PM

Daylight test. I don't think I'll be going for this one, but had to test it.

07-29-2009, 10:59 AM

Night test. I'll probably go for something like this. I'm really looking forward to diving in and start the actual painting. But I'm also scared shitless. Lately I'm very inspired by the old Disney background paintings. I want to go for a similar feel, but those guys are hardcore fine artists.... :)

07-31-2009, 03:59 AM
nice concept and beautiful sketches! ..so good to see an old fashion paper sketch ...and uncommon these days.
hope to see more. your color technique is vey nice

Lets do this. I've got to start painting otherwise I'll never make it. So I guess this is the setup i'm going to start with... lets see what happens :)

Houston, we have liftoff!
Rendering started. Gonna be a long sit, but it should be good fun! :)

08-02-2009, 07:04 PM
hey I like this character, very original.

08-02-2009, 07:39 PM
Cool concept! I like the characters too.

08-02-2009, 08:16 PM
Looking really good, there is something really cool about your character, can't quite put my finger on it but he looks really cool. Can't wait to see more ;)

08-02-2009, 10:54 PM
Very funny and original character!!

Thanks a lot guys!
Small update. Main part of the road, some bushes and some more details on the character. We're getting there... slowly :).

08-03-2009, 05:06 PM
Perfect pencil sketches :thumbsup:
I like this scene a lot. makes me laugh. Used cans on wrists? Hahaha - great!
With scouts like this one I feel perfectly safe :scream:

I see scout's shadow on boarding, but ground lacks shadows from boy and the boarding. Am I right?

08-03-2009, 05:50 PM
i really like your character,especialy his facial expression, keep it up!!

08-04-2009, 07:17 PM
Hey hey, mate. Hurry it up, deadline in a few days. Good luck, mate :)

The image looks very cool, I'd just check the hand that's holding the gun - it's not quite clear how the hand is holding it. Other than that - superb work :)

pfff getting kind of stressy now. It's hard to combine this image with my current job. It's going to be a long last 2 days.

Sweet job, mate, I used to be a bit chubby like this kid :) Where do you work now, by the way?

Good luck :)

08-13-2009, 04:57 AM
Thanks guys!

Mike: At the moment I'm art director at a video game project in Vietnam. Setting up a studio and trying to get the project running. It's just for a few months (probably). After that... dunno, freelance again I guess :) (first go back home though and relax a bit, been traveling for more than a year then).
Where are you at, at the moment?

08-14-2009, 03:15 AM
Mann... That's a GREAT and funny work, David!

Congratz for your job!! Perfect expressions! =D


08-14-2009, 08:32 PM
Dave - art director, niiice :) Good luck with your project. About me - I'm a concept artist at People Can Fly that is part of Epic Games, which is sweeeet :) I'm really lucky. And sometimes really tired, as well :) We're working on unannounced project and doing environments and props for them. Gonna write more when I'll get more rest.

08-16-2009, 10:19 AM
Great one ! very naive and scary idea...
They don't seem to understand what really happen but they play the game... Children...
Thanks for this, very refreshing !
