    Quick sketch I made in my little black sketch book. I dunno what/who it is exactly. Maybe a necromancer? Or an alternative design for a Lich I haven't completed yet?

    I try as hard as I can to vary my pen size, and line weight. Relying on a single size was a very hard habit to break.

    Oh yeah. And I'm thoroughly impressed by all this stuff! You've really come into your own, Buck... What the hell does that mean, anyway? Well I've heard people saying it, and I think it's something good.

    You talking about Tripod, Geocity, and Angelfire, or me? Because both the users of those sites, and myself in general pretty much have to be masochistic on some level...



    Some more than others.

    Ah. I guess you're right. I do have a long way to go until I reach that level of masochism in my art.

    And yeah! It's me! I've been here and there. Haven't been as active art-wise, so I mostly hang around critical failures now. Still love art, of couse. It's finals week, but once that's over I hope to get some shit done.

    Wow you're right, there's a similartiy there. Not in the "omg!" sense, and not in a bad sense either.

    Also, reboot was the awesomest showever when I was a kid.

    I originally drew these in my little black sketch book months ago. I decided I would scan 'em in, and rework them digitally. I can already tell that there are a lot of problems that I wasn't aware of before, so hopefully I'll do a much better job of refining them this time. The originals were no larger than two inches max.

    I'd love to see one of these fully rendered. :^:

    Also, regarding that last character design, his neck/collar doesn't seem to line up with his torso. Or maybe it's vice versa. Or maybe it's just me.

    I think its the left(his right) shoulder that doesn't line up. That's probably whats throwing things off. I should fix that.

    I'm actually really really surprised, a lot of people who use imagination to create creatures tend to forget shade values, which you have not.

    Taken into account, and making adjustments. Anyone else want to chime in while I'm shifting shit around? I'm still not 100% about the shading.

    Yeah, the screen on my Cintiq is much deeper, and richer in terms of color, and gamma. Its comes calibrated like that. So what it displays is closer to what the image would look like printed. I tend to forget that regular screens aren't calibrated like that, so when you go from one to the other there's an obvious difference. Even still, I am trying to push the contrast a bit more than I already have. Thanks, Mustang.

    Looks pretty nice, structurally I think it's pretty solid. :^:

    On the painting front, it's a good start, I just think beyond the aforementioned contrast issue, things you might want to keep an eye on:

    -Keeping things simple, reducing complexity of the figure to big simple shapes in the initial stages of the shading. ie: spherical shape of the cranium, cylinder of the tooth structure, cylinder of the neck, box of the nose, box on the cheekbones. You've got a good start with the idea on the cranium already I think, but I can see you're starting to get carried away with detail shading on complex detailed areas like in the mouth and the area beneath the cheekbones.

    -Varying edge quality, esp. in major plane changes and with cast shadows. Right now most of the tone you've got has a fairly soft transition from light to dark, which is good for broad areas curving away from the light (cranium of head, cylinder of collar), but it tends to flatten things out when used everywhere. In areas where the form turns more rapidly (side>front of nose, cheekbone, brow ridge), making a sharper, more distinct transition can help the form read more clearly.

    -Remember you're designing for tone and not line when you go to paint; don't be afraid to lose the linework for a stronger dramatic effect. Ex: losing a lot of the neck/collar interior detailing for the sake of a strong cast shadow, pushing the focus more explicitly towards the face. If you try too hard to preserve linework for its own sake, you may end up robbing the finished piece of needed contrast and interest.

    Alien_Concepts___Decks_by_Buckwolfe.png

    Messing around with alien concepts.

    These guys are from a race called the Deck, which reach a height of around four feet. They live between 50 and 60 years, but their calender years are four times longer than ours.

    I figure their planet became corrupted, and started spewing out toxic fumes into the atmosphere. So now they basically live inside these customized life suits.

    I like the transclucent look of most of them- it makes them look more alien than most alien concepts.
