and this one was a few years ago on san diego comic con when i was signing at arcana booth and then realised that wacom people were at the table next to me .....soooo....i really wanted to try out the 21 inch cintiq.

cool thing but too damn big for my taste, my  experience is;bigger the tablet , slower the work

no, it actually could, i know people went up in arms with a gutteral reaction, but that is cause we all thought; so they are aliens...

and i m kinda hopeful that they meant the other option by it..

mutagenic substance that created them is of alien origin

if this was the case, there are  windows open for some simple logical storytelling to involve krang into the story, or sequels

shredder...would be a bit troublesome tho.. unless shredder was some kind of a  idustrial spy hired to steal the  substance, and  hamato yoshi was protecting it, dunno, maybe he was a ninja scientist XD  hiding in the sewers  only to realise the container leaked...


with that story angle...it could be doable....


buut yeah.. they are probably aliens XD


dont mind my crazy rambling here, its a crappy cloudy day, , southern wind.. hard to concentrate on anything productive...so this is where my brain went today

so for anyone whos interested this si my monthly gig atm.. and probably for a long period of time my art duties are gonna be artifacts+ravine+some videogame stuff

for all interested, no ravine isnt out yet. ron is at this very moment handling rewrites, so in about 3 to 4 months well be off with that too


till then... its not fantasy, its not ravine, but its fun to do

intro was done by a very skillful artist, john tyler christopher

and issue 15 is all but done ... and what a fun darkling, angelus and douchey tilly filled issue it is... mm delightful

btw small heads up, soon ill post unedited version of first 20ish pages of ravine, so you guys will have something to compare the finalized polished text by ron

and now , off to work for me!

two days ago i was chatting with a buddy of mine, a student of a sorts of mine i guess would fit.
a student that is so good people keep thinking him and i are the same person, which has been causing some epic hilarity, but thats besides the point

so we got this idea we should mess with people and i should try and draw some of his characters, a fanart of the sorts, and even do the whole linework thing he does

and then i realised something dreadfull

PAINTING HAS KILLED MY DRAWING SKILLS!!!!

by this i mean i have zero patience for linework.  its just alien to me. all the time i was trying in my head i was screaming: 2 NO DAMN YOU, PUT SOME LAYERS OF COLOR!!!!

i used to draw alot in th eold days, but now, that skill has eroded.
and im not talking about traditional shaded drawing, shaded is easy, i mean pure line drawing
i have trained my mind to think in volumes shadows and colors to the point where line just kind of died out


AND I BLAME PAINTING!!!!!!

modelling was its accomplice

so aside my  comic work for quite some time iwv ebeen having fun working on serious sam bfe game, and oldschool fps

really fun part was sort of moderniszing the old designs in the game but still keep them recognisable

what i did in the game was character design, here and there some smaller locations designed, and  a spaceship design,  and i also did the zbrush models for that  and texturing

of course  with alot of help of my calleague admir who did all the retopology on the models and handled the speculars

it was a very fun project to work on and a cool gate into the world of videogames

and no i have no plans of leaving comics--- while they can  pay the rent ill be making them, thats the basic fact so yeah, comics will be my main job description for a loong time to come

oh only enemy i didnt really make in the game is the huge grey guy, called khnum, the horned one XD

and yeah i know u cant really see the enemies too good due to hectic gameplay, but soon when it s out ill post some shots of the actual models :))

just saw it and i cant help feeling.... this movie will rock

i mean the teaser is so bad that it just feels done on purpose,  weirdly enough the first thing i thought about after it was the last airbender teaser, i mean that thing rocked my socks off and the movie ended up being....rather unsatisfying

and somehow i got this weird feeling this movie will actually end up being awesome

this is just an opinion, you may disagree , but i dunno.. i just cant shake off the feeling the damn thing might actually end up being a decent movie

so i started watching the gargoyles cartoon today and a few wpisodes in my mind become ovsessed with one thought ...WHY THE HELL HAS THIS NOT BEEN MADE INTO A MOVIE YET?????

i mean of all the far fetched ideas , and cartoon shows and comics and whatnot, gargoyles are actually tailor made for a movie, designs translate incredibly well, and would give any animation studio a bunch of massive creative boners. it is highly atmospheric , dramatic and epic and seriously so damn easy to make fantastic promotional materials

i mean it really has it all...hollywood is stupid

so i saw the trailer for that....movie... and i got a simple thought...

that movie is nothing else but a bundle of deviantart popular keywords

hot chick big boobs robot cyborg samurai dragon planets nazi zombie kitchen sink....

seriously it isnt a story its a list XD

of course its too early to judge buuuut an educated guess is possible XD

this is gonna ne the best bunch of keywords eveeeeeerrrrrr

okay so since i dont wanna show more of the new stuff till the official announcement of publishing kicks in i realised i got a craaapload of old stuff

ravine was redrawn about 5 to 6 times in its 10 years of making, and even though  the root of the story and many key scenes remained intact massive amounts of it have changed drastically

for instance originally the story was set on floating islands and continents.. floating in air....  and you cant imagine the amount of thanking the God i went through for kicking that stuff out

cause id have to suffer through a barrage of dumbest comments known to man.... the he, she  it reminds me of or looks like...

also.. the original story featured a timeloop.. hellyeah, timetravel baby, doctor who?... no lynn de luctes baby XD

its so much fun looking through this old stuff and reminescing. ravines world was much more... undisciplinned, undefined back then. magic was very much rampant, and just weird in some cases, there is beauty to that but it leaves tooo much confusion  and detracts from the story and characters bs shoveling on a ton of gimmickry....like for instance eines used to be ...im dead serious.... a squirrel mutant....

HEY WE ALL GOTTA START FROM SOMEWHERE!!!!!

you wanna design a character

ask yourself these questions before you go into absurd stockpiling of stuff onto him/her/it

what does the character do?
how does the character do it?
what tools does the character use to his purpose?
and how does the character carry his tools around

who the character is is a base which doesnt concern me, the questions asked above are what distinguishes a functional character design from a random overload of decorations without a purpose

so if you feel upto it try a lil excercise

draw a character with these questions answered on him
the post it on devart with the questions and answers defined in the description and shoot me a link

ill come and post a critique

dont get me wrong, im not the best or the supreme authority, and there is no one solution to design direction, im just.. kinda bored, since is topped playing mmos, day has too many hours
