OMG, you get my humor! I'm training somewhat hard (by my standards) to increase my skill as an artist, since I'm such a noob compared to the likes of you, but I'd like to one day reach up to the skill of someone like you. I want to be this good for one so I could just do the most ridiculous and goofy sort of pictures, and do them soooo freaking well that because of how well they are made, the silly joke that is their premise is made absolutely epic by the skill of the artist!
This is F'ING AWESOME! My friend and I were laughing out loud - this is brilliant. We both said the same thing: "THIS NEEDS TO BE ON A T-SHIRT." Do you/would you/could you have any thoughts in that direction?
Even if not, we adore this and thank you for sharing it!
i am really not sure whether i'm more angry at your offensive attitude to anyone who enjoyed this for a silly joke..which it was meant to be...
or more amused by that last line of your message.
the only reason why i haven't cursed you out and blocked you for good is a simple one...
i was once where you are now.
in that unabashed place of love for all things perfectly realistic, rendered and badass.
and that place had made me stagnate.
draw static things, and paintings within which any momentum, any movement was merely coincidental. i was in my comfort zone
nice and cozy. and not progressing
the reason why i am not switching styles, switching approaches, doing little jokes and unexpected drawings is to shake off the funk of stagnation and develop the feeling for motion and composition that goes beyond somebody standing around looking cool
see, i don't give a shit whether you hate this. i am not doing this for you. i am doing this to improve my own skills, and the reason that you do not realize this is the same reason why you have no place trying to teach me stuff about drawing.
for this same reason i don't try teaching mathias verhasselt about environment and concept art realism. i am not at his level.
and by god i will be one day, but until that day comes i will do anything i need to do to keep improving
my last advice to you cantas is, let go of this anger, look beyond basic hyper realism of rendering, and recognize the stiffness, the lifelesness of things... only way to wake them up its to take them out of the comfort zone
man i love your artworks but sometimes you suck and i think our conversation is much morevaluable as the guys they arse crawl on you-
are you not tired to hear always great,amazing, wow and all the stuff- i suck many times with my works and its true - i can it lot better
just like you -you can it much better but you dont-youre confused about the arse crawlers and think ok every work is good- but it isnt-
we are artists man and we should achive the stars and all the things- you give me all the stuff years ago and i fall in love- you was my hero man you create me and im thankfull-without you my skills wouldnt reach this level but good friends should give you the truth - however hell yes im there where you was years ago- i have anger but in last times i think you lost your passion- and maybe you find it back about people like me-and think to yourself this fuckin cantas - i will do the creepiest and hell best thing i ever do- i admit i write you to make you angry and this make possible the best artworks we ever do- you know some american guys in a bar fight and hit theyselves and becoming best friends- think about it and of course im long way distant to teach you-but put your power in angry and make the best thing you can do-and you can
this is a pointless conversation as you do not understand what i am doing at all here. and with your mindset i wont be changing your mind.
this is not about praise, people praised my old stuff people praise my new stuff, with taste being a personal thing some will alway like it and some wont.
the only constant is me. and i honestly don't give a damn. i am doing what i do for my own personal progress. i never took advice from people telling me what i should be doing and i am not about to start now.
instead, i will merrily do my own thing the way i need to do it for my own improvement.
i have made people eat their own words over and over and over again.
and i plan on doing so for a long time to come.
and believe it or not, no matter how absurd this may seem to you now... about a year from now you will be eating your own words
and i don't mean that in a bad , petty way, i mean that what i am doing will end up culminating with such increase in skills that you will have to look for your jaw
I KNOW WHAT I AM DOING!
and one day you will realize that yourself. till then i don't give a shit if you criticize my work because it doesn't do it for you
as long as you dont criticize those that do like it, we'll be good
Very insightful tutorial, thanks for putting it up!
I do have one question however: In most of your tutorials I see you use the same kind of very light purple for back-lighting and certain highlights. If it's not too much trouble, could you explain why that specific color works so well? I've tried it on some of my recent sketches (not uploaded) and it works really well, but I can't understand why!

I knooow right o_o I have seen that as well, but not only purple, he uses many colours too like yellow and blue. I have seen artworks from other epic artists and they all use the glow/highlights! o.o
But I think they do so to enhace realism of things, like, if things don't have that little glow they don't look too good because the -like- everything glows, always, we simply don't mind those little glows in real life, but in drawings they add the final realism needed.
