Daily Paint 45 – The IGN reviewer

daily-paint-the-ign-review

I am not too happy with commercial game review sites at the moment.  Many are not honest and have no integrity.  I was originally going to rant but I decided against it. With out further ado here is my interpretation of what an IGN reviewer looks like. I also added an IGN based meme.

Lesson of the story : Look towards personal blogs and small budding sites for your reviews.

Daily Painting No.83 – Spiderman is Having Dinner Tonight

the cure spiderman is having me for dinner tonight

For Andytallman101. Andy asked me to draw Spiderman with silverware in hand ready to pounce on Robert Smith. The lyrics in Lullaby inspired him. I heard of The Cure but never really paid much attention to their music. I watched one of their music videos on YouTube and thought they where pretty decent . I was struggling with drawing Spiderman upside down, then I realized ‘you fool, flip the canvas 180!’. Note to self: do more then one thumbnail for every painting you do (do a dozen!). Halfway painting this I realized a different shot would of been more effective.

1 hour 30 min. Photoshop with a Wacom tablet 🙂

Alex the Alligator 3D Model WIP

I try to tackle too many things at once. Here is Alex, he is a gator that has hair!!!! (there is a reason for this in the story :D) He is the co protagonist for ‘Alex and Cruz”. The tail need to be finished hand have those bumps on them that crocs and gators have. His shirt design needs to be more elaborate. And he needs his scales painted an so forth.

Since I used parts from other the other models I made, I spent about 2 hours on him.

Alex and Cruz : Comic 01

Finally . The first comic from a project I been working on and of six months on.  It is a 3d rendered comic /animation hybrid (the animation will be lacking for some time). The Cheetah is a little rough still. only the dragon is finished.  The dragon is not Alex though, the alligator is. The dragons name is Derrick. I’m actually am still working on the alligator but will start using him in test renderings as well. I brought back the unicorn from the dead, and was able turn the old dragon model into a lizard chick, so I have most of the cast ready. We need to start making sets for the characters to live in My friend is helping out on the project but so far I have done a majority of the work so far. I’m positive he will be very helpful and this will become a co-op project. But just in case he does bale out on me, I have a backup plan.. removing the cheetah character. The only elements he has helped out with so far is the design of the cheetah character and this test panel. But he sounds serious in helping me make the comics , joke ideas, the stage sets and promoting the thing so I don’t think I have anything to worry about.

Asgaut the Viking – Page 3

The third page in my comic short story. A little looser line then I usually draw. Just realized the the top three frames are not needed. It’s fun to figuring stuff out when approaching each frame. Repeated the same frame but put a different action in each frame. Gives it a movie like feel. Like my lame Onomatopoeia?

Asgaut the Viking – Page 2

Second Page of Asgaut the Viking.  Trying different camera angles and driving myself crazy drawing them. On the plus side I am sticking to 4-6 panels a page, which is admittedly small for a graphic novel comic book thingy.

Created in Photoshop. I used a soft round brush for inking. I find that even though I have a 8×6 drawing tablet, I cant get my lines crisp enough. I thought I would try using halftones for this page. It’s easy to create halftones in Photoshop. I had a blast shading it though. It’s funny, shading and shadows used to be what I hated to draw, but now it’s what I look forward to. Any feedback is welcome.

Next some concept designs and I am aiming for two pages next week.

Non art related. I’ve been digging though all the games I bought during a Steam sale.  I have just played one of the strangest looking games ever. It’s caled Zeno Clash. The artwork and design of this game is so different compared to most fantasy games. It’s a interesting blend of Streets of Rage and Hexen and Pete knows what. The monster designs are so odd, you sometimes have to do a double take to make sure you saw what you thought you saw correctly. The acting is terrible to the point of irritation unfortunately. In fact I could barely understand the character giving the tutorial! And what do they have against chickens?  Since a sequel is coming out soon, I wouldn’t be surprised if this game goes out on sale. Recommend if you want something strange and different.

Update: for some reason this never published for some reason, It remained in my drafts despite the fact that I clicked on publish. weird.

Asgaut the Viking: Page 1

asgaut the viking hero comic short story

First page of my short comic story. Originally this was going to be the second page. I did a page that was detailed about the world, but it reviled too much too soon.
Created in Photoshop.
Time Spent 2 hours.

I also setup a blog for this comic project at “asgaut.wordpress.com“. I will be uploading the pages to both blogs. I was planing ahead a way for people that would like to read the comic beginning to end with ease.
