Minna's stuff

The first one was supposed to be the spider cavern, but I guess it became just a generic fantasy-swamp-speedpaint.. The other one was a study and also a gift for my mother for Christmas.

Skyrim has been fun but as soon as my vacation ends its time to start working again ;)

Vablo's Studyweek

Here are some studies (all from photoreference) I managed to do within the week, and once again I came to the conclusion that it is really useful... Damn those colors, really hard to get them right but I guess it's just a matter of practice.

Beware of the newcomer! Fishfruit and other stuff.

Hello, first time posting here. I have tried to catch up with everyone on the weekly themes, but time flows a bit too fast for me, who joined the party on week theme #4. Anyway, here's my version of the fishfruit, and something I'm working on my own right now; a deep sea cruiser designed to look like a giant sea turtle! Any critics are welcome, since I'm not still a newbie.

And Vablo, you're drawing skills are so OP. :)

Weekly Theme #6: Devious Pale Prostitute & #7: Chamber of Embalmed Spiders

Hello everyone. Trying to catch the "Weekly Theme"-train which is moving forward in quite a fast pace. First a couple of enviro practices, and after that some harem-kinda girl interpretation + a narrative picture of it, the waist is too wide I think in the sketches... Also some doodling for the Spider Chamber, this seems like a corridor or something, probably going to work more on that.

Comments and critique are very welcome as always. :)

Help me with comments pls!

Thumbnail work in progress

I was thumbnailing random stuff to jump start my brain. Then came this:

I'd like to work on it further, although I want to keep it loose and not obsess over little details.

New stuff from Juho


unfortunately, I haven't managed to finish anything related to the themes, so here are a few other things I've done on my time. The fish-thingy is based on instructions from Chuck Lukacs' Fantasy Genesis book. The kitty is just a kitty (speedpaint).

Frozen Alien Fortress

Here is my Frozen Alien Fortress. Wanted it to look desolate and epic. To be honest, I'm not really that happy about it. I worked on it for way too long and kinda lost my original idea. Please, rip it apart and critisize! I want to learn from it :)

Weekly Theme #3: Beetlebear

Here are my takes on this one, I also wrote a little about the creatures whatsoever. I did the thumbnails before I started to render properly, and I have circled the ones that I started these two with.

Weekly Theme #2: Frozen Alien Fortress

Ugh, three attempts at the theme + a random chainsaw alien space marine whatever. I did all these with Photoshop and in the character I tried Feng Zhu's technique of not using pen pressure to control opacity at all. It was actually pretty fun, though maybe a little slower when used to using pressure...

By the way, if someone has a nice idea for this week's theme feel free to change it, creature it seems to be... :) Have a good week everyone!

Time for frozen alien fortresses

I got carried away with the theme and did two. This was a nice practice in composition, values and landscapes in general :)

Juho's Sketch Dump #2!

I've been working hard on facial studies lately. I've done a lot of life drawing before, but I never focused on important details like faces or hands. Thus, you'll probably be seeing more and more faces, hands and maybe even feet.

Finally got my outrageous fishfruits ready!

Minna's fishfruit

An always positive fat fish living in a cyan sea.

Weekly Theme #1: Fishfruit

Yeaaah, the first picture in the blog! My take on the topic, sketched with pencil and quickly painted over with Photoshop.
