What can I say about it, Huh?

Sorry for the slow reply. Yeap I started illustration as my major. And moved on Animation platform. However I still cant do well in 3D. The only thing I can adapt from my illustration skills are to texturing pipeline.

For colors...yea I would say its tricky. However, you've to know the mood for what you're trying to achieve. For example, a sunny day, most likely you will have to use colors like orange, yellow, a little bit of blue, purple and red. Add in some cool colors to the shadows to make it a little bit interesting. Usually, its best to study colors from good photographs. I study my color sense from photos and slowly compare them with illustration.

And from there on, I try to paint in different colors to see whether it looks comfortable. Try to look it from far once you've finished your paintings, most of the time you can spot mistakes. Or you can view your paintings the next day after you wake up, I would say you will notice a lot of things for improve and to fix.

Hope this gives you a quick idea. Cheers =)

Work in Progress for my September portfolio. Turbo Shek from Dragon Tiger Gate.
Started painting the usual way I always do. Found out that it was not as impressive as it used to be. So tried another way of dealing with it.

This is the latest progress for now. Hope to finish it by this week. Still wondering should I add in a Scorpion into it. Probably a montage of a scorpion, and paint over it.

Figure sketches are AWESOME!!!

make more!
  10 October 2009
yup the figure sketches are very nice...they have a feeling of form that would translate well into your concepts.
the marker work is well done also!

A million thanks for your comments. I will do more and post once its done.

Thanks a lot there. Im still developing my own style to form my own concept art. Somehow I still havent figured out where will I go, when will I be able to create my own style. Cheers~

Ok, heres an update of Turbo Shek. Block in more details last night, am trying to get his expression look more real now.

very impressive i like ur comic character sketches!, the painting maybe you can try painting it more detail? it seems to have of texture pattern overlaying it rather than showing more of the subtle detail of the character.
