Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Working on a little still life.

    thanks dude. Nothing quite like a still life to remind you that observation takes time. I'll see if I have some hours to make headway on this over the week.

    Do you start out with any sort of fixed palette? I guess I'm just curious how early other people make their color decisions.

  • IrukaIruka Registered User, Moderator mod

    Sometimes I put a little thing up in the corner to look at but I rarely use it:

    I mostly just put down a base color and then use the color picker as I go. Same sort of process as this old study:

    I rely alot on photoshop trickery for colors, in that I treat them as very temporary things that can always be modified. I kinda want to get back into real paints to think about color more from the beginning.

  • MightyhogMightyhog Registered User regular
    Interesting! I doubt I could play it loose like that without the colors looking obviously overworked... the older study has especially confident choices, I like it!

  • IrukaIruka Registered User, Moderator mod
    still plugging away on it.

    I think I'm going to call it quits, it was a fun study, though

    Super cool!

    I particularly like the the simplified tones on the skull.

  • IrukaIruka Registered User, Moderator mod
    @Sublimus Thanks! I should post the progress on it:
    I probably would do another pass on it before I printed it, but I'm moving on for now.

    Really like the way you flattened the drips and drops into pure design elements!

  • SublimusSublimus AustinRegistered User regular
    This came out great! Love the gold especially!

  • IrukaIruka Registered User, Moderator mod
    Havent been crazy productive art wise the last few weeks, but here's some highlights from the sketchbook.


  • m3nacem3nace Registered User regular
    Friggin love the play of proportions on Carter. And man that skull, jesus, the drips and the smoke it's all god damn baroque awesomeness.
    Blessed be the elder gods for your artwork man. Always been your biggest fan.

  • IrukaIruka Registered User, Moderator mod
    @m3nace <3 Thanks man!!

    I played with tilt brush today! It was pretty rad:


    It makes me want to get a VR set for home, so I could play with it for a long time. Those things are a bit pricey though. I gotta say, If VR sculpting turns out to be robust, that maybe something I actually want to play around with on the long term.

    I also made this thing that @Angel_of_Bacon really loved the first time I did it, and way less cartoony in comparison.

    that tilt brush stuff looks awesome

    has anybody ever gotten your stuff as a tattoo? this would make some sick tattoos, like that dream catcher one.

  • IrukaIruka Registered User, Moderator mod

    I had a few, eons ago, but generally they've been commissions of something specific/not really related to my general body of work. I've always said yes when people ask if they can get something tattooed, but haven't seen any recent follow throughs.

    I think I have 4 tattoos based on something I drew out in the wild, if none of them have been removed

  • bowenbowen PEPSI IS THE BEST SODA ayyyyyyyRegistered User regular
    tiltbrush seems like it'd be great for doing 3d model concept art

    Warning: I am a programmer/sysop. IANAL/IANAD, seek actual advice from certified people in their respective fields if you are actually in need of it.

    I have been trying to put some time into learning how to work with ink. Here's some doodles.


    I made this for a friend but didn't take a proper scan before I sent it off:

  • SublimusSublimus AustinRegistered User regular
    Love it! And a wild cat appears!

  • LegacyGameLegacyGame Registered User regular
    I really like that knight, could see a mural in that style. Looks pretty slick :o

  • IrukaIruka Registered User, Moderator mod
    Trying to spend more time at my computer painting and not just doodling in my sketchbooks. So hopefully I'll be posting some shitty rough paintings while I get warmed up to it again.

  • LegacyGameLegacyGame Registered User regular
    that expression is spot on

  • BlindPsychicBlindPsychic Registered User regular
    Love em, I think the right one's muzzle might be looking a little squishy instead of pulled back though

    So a forest of boob trees is sexist?
