Maybe, I'll try to make this thread useful, put some character model sheets up for grabs or something. I'll start with a couple speed paints just for fun.

haha, nice ones man. i like how much texture/grain there is in the top two... i think people are gonna start getting a little exhausted of the digital-painterly type thing at some point (not quite yet), so i think it's kind of refreshing to see grounding elements like that. you got any more relatively recent work you can post? stuff from your blog or whatever?
Middle one is precious. Haha. Nice.

I dunno what the last one is but I love it. Niceness

Great stuff as always, Snowfly. I love the second one, I actually lol'd.
How did you go about doing the first one? Did you just have a background image then paint on a multiply layer or something? It looks ace! I really have to try something like that.

casey-I did the painting first then threw on the texture as an overlay. Gotta try it the other way around some time. :-)
Never get your eye shot out in the snow.

Pencil + Photoshop

snowfly, would love to see all your stuff dumped in one place /images/graemlins/smile.gif like all the stuff in your blog/posted in PC collated. what about that automatic thing that photoshops supposed to have?
badass, man. Dig it all. Shades of Mullins.
03-14-2008, 03:06 AM
Rooster- Yeah I'll get around to compiling the stuff someday /images/graemlins/smile.gif It's all just sitting in my photobucket anyway.
03-16-2008, 02:28 AM
Damn man, last picture is just fucking awesome.
03-16-2008, 02:36 AM
nice perspective /images/graemlins/smile.gif

mad coloring , love it !!

very impressed with the strong sense of motion in these last few. lots of motion, lots of texture, and your nearly trademark color control. keep running with these.

thanks guys. here is an image i have been working on on and off for the past week whenever i have an hour to spare. it's a study for a character called The Progerian, a time distorting gnome stalker with the tendency to pop back into real time just to see the surprised look on his victim's face as he rips out its innards.
I painted this one while creating custom brushes.

Studies for a short comic that's taken over my Dominance War time.
awesome snowmang! The little girl character concept has a lot of personality, and the upshot into the adult's face in the storyboard does a great job of expressing that feeling of being a little kid in a cold adult's world. What's the girl's name?
Do you start many of these from linework?
03-24-2008, 03:29 AM
Man Snowfly you always have some interesting stuff, look forward to seeing more weird stuff in here. by weird I mean sweet.

fuckin a , love your color usage man !
05-12-2008, 09:43 PM
Feel'n really stretched horizontally on that last one.. except for the mouth which is quite tiny.
Somehow I missed the girl in the short comic last time... VERY nice stuff there!
07-31-2008, 11:08 AM
Whoa, personal art! Very WIP-
08-01-2008, 11:57 AM
Love the last one!

Playing around with the SAI demo and came up with this...little kitsch, but the brushes are a joy to paint with.
08-06-2008, 11:22 PM
There is a great deal of character in the latest one. The right arm position seems a little odd (blade doesn't seem to line up to fingers as expected), but that's the only thing pulling me out of the sketch. Love the face, and gesture.
The quality of the painting on that Sai experiment is very rich. I hope you have time to keep posting sketches :).
08-09-2008, 08:21 PM
Thanks kary, yeah the weapon arm definitely needs fixing. I'll give it some attention before moving on to the painting.
'nother garish speed paint. Maybe I'll make it into another one of my shitting fantasy characters.
08-09-2008, 08:59 PM
Really like that troll like sketch! The right arm does have a bit of weird curve to it and the right leg kinda seems shorter than the left.
The last orc painting seems nice too but he looks like he is smiling instead of a battle ready intimidating face.

Some downtime doodles.
07-26-2012, 09:25 AM
nice doodles! is there holes in the hood for that girls hair bun things? lol
07-26-2012, 10:38 AM
Nice work! Especially like the armoured girl with the mask.
07-26-2012, 12:18 PM
Woah! Man super cool to see you posting again, you're one of the several around here whose art inspired me to take up 2d. Love the chick with the bear claws a lot.
07-27-2012, 03:37 AM
Thanks guys, work has me doing tons of UI lately, so these are therapeutic :-p
toxic-thanks for dropping in! Your Mixamo entry was badass.
Suprore-Checked out your sketch thread, I love the humanoid species studies! Really cool stuff.

Just a skin idea for League of Legends' Singed.
08-30-2012, 09:06 AM
I really should start focusing on things other than character designs.
