I've been working on the CG Challenge for CG Society and these are the concept drawings for my main characters.

Soooo... I've been wanting to work with acrylics for a long time now. So I thought I would try and come up with the concept, then transfer it to a canvas later.

I'm going to call it "Fire Stance"

Here is an update on my new painting I'm working on.

3 hours into it. So far this is the results. I always have a little difficulty when it comes to backgrounds and color. I'm hoping I can turn that weakness around.

Ok... Color is super hard. Especially since I'm not using a reference for the color.

add some more warm tones like some reds you have orange and yellow, probably in the flame. And try cleaner mixes of the colors especially the purple and yellow since they are from different harmonies from that I mean cool and warm. I think looking at the flame it has the most potential and could possibly be a focal point since that is what is even being looked at by the character. So you can set the mood of everything to that, just a suggestion.

Nekotiq - Thank you so much for the advice. I agree with you on both pieces of work. For some reason I have the most difficulty with colors and environments, but I'm hoping to change the degree of difficulty for me in those areas. With the digital painting I am having some issues so it will probably be a little while before I can show an update. I'm hoping it will be done by Wednesday, and I will definitely be using your advice.

Thanks again.

This has been a really busy last few weeks, but I think that things are finally starting to slow down So I can't wait to start updating and continuing my studies.

Goddess of Retribution

Lol, so here I go again. I have two projects that I am working on now. I'm going to to eventually try and finish my "Dreamscape" project, but since the challenge is over. It'll probably not progress as fast as when the challenge was going on. Now I am trying to work on the Dominance War V challenge. I really enjoy these challenges, because I learn so much in so little time. I only hope that I can finish one LMAO!

I have been trying to improve my skills by watching some of the videos from Digital Tutors. My last session was over ZSketching and this picture shows the results from that session.

Here is another quick idea for my DMV "Goddess of Retribution" entry

Here are a few speed modeling projects I just recently finished, each were done within a 2 hour time limit.

I just finished an 18" x 24" graphite drawing. The whole purpose was just to explore a little with line wait and mark making.

Here is what I came up with...
